The food is always good but the service is hit or miss. Special days and Fridays the service seems to be overwhelmed as they never have enough help. Lunch is great... good food... good service

Food was good. Serving boiled crawfish the night I was there. Menu is extensive so if you want good seafood you should check this out. There was not enough staff so service was kind of spotty. Certainly not attentive. Overall a good experience.

We were greatly pleased w the food! Hamburger steak - stuffed shrimp - seafood salad (although the lettuce was slightly browning) fried pickles and boudin balls --- SERVICE WAS OUTSTANDING !!!! The only complaint was the time it took for our food to be served -- it was not a full house by any means and our order took 40... More

I really like this restaurant. Good atmosphere for family dining with good food. There are several nights with all you can eat if that is your thing plus their seafood plates are just downright yummy.

Recently ate lunch at Don's and found the food to be average at best. Gumbo and shrimp poboy. Gumbo consisted of a very dark roux and was way too salty and somewhat too hot (seasoning hot). Shrimp were average but the poboy bread was excellent. Somewhat pricey for what was ordered. Not sure we will eat there anytime soon.

Our family always make sure we stop at Don's on our way to Georgia. Food is always hot and delicious, and the service is fantastic. I prefer the shrimp or oysters, my husband like the catfish or etouffe, my son loves the jacked up oysters. We have never been disappointed with the food or service at any of Don's restaurants.

Some Cajun food on her birthday. We really enjoyed this place right off I10. The staff were super friendly and chatted o with us awhile. The shrimp appetizer was awesome. I had the Catfish with shrimpeople sauce Cajun style, it was great. My wife also enjoyed her meal. Two thumbs up!

DON'S SEAFOOD More Than Eighty Years of Exceptional Seafood South Louisiana locals and visitors have been drawn to DON'S authentic Cajun cuisine for more than 80 years. Menu selections including traditional Landry family recipes, and more recent original creations like Zydeco Shrimp, are well worth repeat visits. Many stop in daily for oysters on the half shell or boiled crawfish in season. DON'S bartenders serve Signature Old Fashioned cocktails alongside the newest specialty drinks, many made with Louisiana products. DON'S SEAFOOD began in 1934, when Don Landry opened his first restaurant and bar in downtown Lafayette with $400 borrowed from his uncle. Prohibition had just been lifted and at only 24 years old, he envisioned serving drinks and offering a simple menu featuring fresh local seafood. Four generations later, the Landry family has expanded that humble beginning into what would eventually become the DON'S SEAFOOD of today. Continuing the tradition, the Landry family still owns and operates each location. An extensive menu of original South Louisiana Cajun family recipes, the freshest Gulf seafood and sizzling steaks is offered. Each location boasts a unique Acadiana-inspired décor, all have a full-service bar and grill, perfect for casual diners or sports enthusiasts. Every DON'S SEAFOOD grill features an open charbroiler where diners can watch exclusive dishes being prepared like DON'S Original Jacked Up Oysters loaded with bacon, jalapenos and pepper jack cheese. Whether you're just passing through South Louisiana or live right around the corner, you'll find a DON'S SEAFOOD location near you in Lafayette, Baton Rouge, Denham Springs, Gonzales, Hammond, Covington and Metairie.
