Went in late afternoon and the food was almost out immediately. I got the half fried crawfish tail & half crawfish etouffee. It was great. No, it wasn't cheap but I didn't expect it to be. I would go back.

I visited this location twice, once for lunch and again for dinner, neither visit was great. I had the crawfish etouffee for lunch and it was OK but not on par with some other places I have tried. The "Jacked Up Shrimp" was pretty tasty, I would order that again for sure. I was expecting more and the bill was... More

The food is way over priced for the amount you get. Had a dozen raw oysters and came with a tiny, plastic fork! Nice atmosphere and friendly severs.

We took the kids here for lunch on a Saturday. The server was very nice but she kept forgetting to bring water, we didn't have enough utensils, the glasses tasted like cleaning solution. The food was OK, though expensive. We did like the shrimp with pepper jelly and fried pickles appetizers.

I went to this restaurant because it was right across the street from hotel I stayed at. It was a little pricey and not that good in my opinion. Wait staff not that friendly.

We both ordered steaks medium, took longer than usual to receive the ribeye's. When we cut into them they were over cooked,so we sent them back for replacements. We were happy with the second set. Manager for that evening was very apologetic and made things better for the meal for my wife and I.

It's been several years since I've been back in the area. My local friend and I ate dinner here again. Seafood was amazingly fresh. From the gumbo, Shrimp, house special oysters, seafood platter, everything was GREAT..! Waiter was enthusiastic, knowledgeable about the choices and a simple atmosphere. Any size party this place can accommodate.

I visited Don's here in Hammond 35 years ago and had a chance to eat lunch there today. Lunch was very good. The staff was very prompt, even though they were quiet busy. I had them make me a Po-Boy with 1/2 Soft Shell Crab and 1/2 Fried Shrimp. Wow, what a Po-Boy. You will notice the rating above. The... More

We visited Don's on a Saturday night and would definitely go again! Three had seafood and one had chicken ravioli. We shared a bread pudding for dessert. Delicious food, friendly atmosphere, fantastic service! Aaron was our waiter and did a superb job! Buy one get one free drinks were an unexpected bonus!

Description
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.
