My wife and I stopped in for lunch and the food was good and the service was quick and polite. Sat next to the grill watched them cook the grilled oysters. I stared so much they actually brought three to us on a plate.

Stopped in to watch a game and have some crawfish bisque. Service at the bar was friendly but not too much. Unfortunately. The bisque crawfish other than a deep, somewhat salty broth had a single crawfish chunk in it. Somewhat disappointing. I would have preferred shredded meat to that. Oh well. Ambiance is nice. And close to many hotels on... More

Everything we had was well-prepared and tasty. The only way I enjoy oysters is the way they prepare the "jacked up" version. It's served in many places and Don's does it well. Some members of our party didn't care for spicy food (I know, out-of-towners) and they were able to find items that they liked. Good service and an overall... More

We visited Madeville for a wedding shower and stayed nearby. After driving all day, we were tired and needed a good resaonable place to eat and we were directed to Don's as a local non-chain restaurant and not high end. We were very pleased with the service and the food, especially for it being a little later in the evening.... More

My boyfriend had been talking about taking me here since we met, and we finally went. The food was good. We stuck to appetizers and gumbo and it was all good. The waiter was fun, and we had a good time there on our last night in Louisiana.

This restaurant is right next to the hotel where I was staying so the close location was an enticement. I had the blackened Red Fish, Gumbo, and beans and rice on the first visit. The food rated above average, but the entree's were brought out when I was only half way through with a cup of Gumbo. I am not... More

Friendly servers and good food is hard to find but here they have it nailed! I highly recommend the chicken and sausage gumbo, so good I had to go back the next day for more. I also had the seafood plater that was more than I could eat.

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.
