The food was ok but over priced for what you get. The drinks are strong and good, that was a plus. Stayed at the Hampton just down the road and was easy to get to but won't go again.More

Would you allow 22 lb. dogs on the outdoor patio? Is there a dessert code?

What is a dessert code? Did the others misread or do I not know what that means? Also, I didn't see a patio, but I would call the establishment to be sure. Unless it's a service dog, I doubt that they would let you bring it. More

The manager reached out to me about my review, which tells me she really cares about the product and service at Dons, this is rare in todays big chain and commercialized establishments, the manager listened to me (another bonus) and seemed to genuinely care about making things right, after speaking with her, I will give Dons another chance, thanks for caring.

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, Denham Springs, Gonzales, Hammond, Covington and Metairie.
