DON'S Seafood: Authentic Cajun Cuisine

Don’t come to South Louisiana without experiencing the flavors of authentic Cajun cuisine at DON’S Seafood.  Their traditional and original Cajun dishes, Gulf seafood and sizzling steaks have long been the choice of visitors and locals alike.


At only 24 years old, Don Landry opened his first restaurant and bar in the heart of Acadiana, downtown Lafayette, with $400 borrowed from his uncle.  In 1934 prohibition had just ended and 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 the DON’S SEAFOOD restaurants of today.


DON’S traditional dishes are made from family recipes, handed down from generation to generation.  They include award-winning seafood gumbo, crawfish etouffée, crabmeat au gratin and many other local favorites.  Menu selections also include more recent signature creations like Jacked Up OystersTM (savory charbroiled oysters from the grill with the perfect blend of bacon, jalapenos and pepper jack cheese) or Zydeco Shrimp (golden brown fried shrimp topped with flavorful pepper jelly sauce). DON’S is widely noted for fresh Gulf seafood and seasonal favorites like boiled crawfish.


Happy Hour never ends at DON’S.  Every day, all day, lunch and dinner guests can choose 2-for-1 draft beer, frozen or on the rocks margaritas and bloody Marys.  Professional bartenders in the full-service bar serve a broad offering of beers, wines, cocktails and specialty drinks, many made with local Louisiana products.  Try their signature Old Fashioned for a real treat. 


If you enjoy a restaurant’s ambience as much as the menu offerings, you’ll love DON’S.  Each location is designed with a unique Acadiana-inspired décor.  Every DON’S SEAFOOD bar and grill features an open charbroiler where diners can watch the chefs prepare exclusive dishes.  You’ll often see a gathering of friends after work or a group sports enthusiasts in the bar cheering for their favorite teams on DON’S big screen TVs.


DON’S is a family-friendly environment where children will feel at home and find their favorite foods on the kid’s menu.


The Landry family still owns and operates each location. You’ll find a DON’S SEAFOOD near Louisiana’s highways and interstates in Covington, Denham Springs, Gonzales, Hammond, Lafayette and Metairie.


If you’re looking for a way to take a little bit of DON’S South Louisiana flavor home with you, try their online gift shop for their house-label seasonings, cookbooks, and logo gift items.


DON’S SEAFOOD is open for lunch and dinner daily.
