We had lunch here eight years ago and it was great. Wanting to try all three of our favorites in Abbeville we had supper at Dupuy's on what we thought would be a slow night. Boy, were we wrong. When the hostess handed me a "buzzer" i knew this place had changed. We opted to wait in the bar (that... More

Yum!! The food here doesn't disappoint me on each visit. We visit Lafayette area at least once a year to eat, dance and enjoy the friendly people. Dupuy's is always a priority visit. My husband eats the raw oysters and I vary my choices. I suggest you try them. It must be good it's been around for 100 plus years.

While Dupuy's is known for the best seafood, the ribeye steak is one of the best you will have anywhere! Last visit I could not resist the eggplant and lump crab appetizer, but my son ordered a steak and it was amazing. Seasoned perfectly, grilled exactly as ordered,and could not have been better. Service is second to none and the... More

Outstanding eggplant abbeville appetizer. And the Friday lunch special was fantastic. The waitress recommended these items and she was spot on. The service was also great.

WHEW! Where do I start. I've been visiting Dupuy's for over thirty years [probably 45 but I don't want to do the math]. A MUST when visiting Historic Downtown Abbeville. The best, freshest, perfect oysters in town. The already ice-cold beer is served in super frosty mugs. You make your own dipping sauce for your raw oysters from an array... More

Not just Abbeville, it could be one of the best restaurants in all of Acadiana. The food is fantastic and the prices are far better than any of their competitors. They have lunch and dinner specials every day. Wednesday is all day all you can eat fried catfish for $10. All day long! Friday lunch is a must have treat... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat in Abbeville,Louisiana. The seafood is great. The hamburger steaks are seasoned just right. But the crawfish etouffee is the best. So if you ever in Abbeville give that place a try. It's a down to earth kind of place whether it's with family or with friends.

The food was great, the service was top notch and the atmosphere was awesome. My husband is from Abbieville, and the first time he brought me home, we went to Dupuy's. We even danced a bit. :)
