My husband and I frequent this restaurant for the best seafood. You won't be disappointed. Many time you will meet travelers passing through on Interstate 12.

We have had some not too great meals at Don't but we do go back from time to time. It's close by and the service is always very good.

Had the Jacked up Shrimp for an appetizer (really good but really, really hot (heat wise) so had to... More

Visiting BR, and with my mom missing the crawfish bisque @ the N BR location(now closed)--we ventured East on 1-12 to the Denham Springs location. Our server, Nicole, was the highlight of the evening. She was fantastic!!! My grandmother's 1/2 and 1/2 platter (crawfish étouffée and fried crawfish) was not as good as it used to be. I was low...

Our server, Ashlyn was terrific and gave us good ideas for lunch. I tried the boudin balls and the chicken/andouille gumbo soup. We also tried the Zydeco shrimp which were really large and tender. Boudin balls consisted of balls of the typical boudin stuffing, rice and pork, deep fried and served with a dipping sauce. The gumbo was spiced wonderfully... More

I visit this location often, I come back for the great food and friendly service. This is our "go to" place to meet with the girls or family for a great meal.

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