Seafood
The truth is, you don't become a Louisiana favorite just by putting the word "authentic" on your sign. When you've served Cajun meals as long as we have, you learn the difference between real food and a bland imitation, and our guests know it too. Grilled, fried or on ice-there's time cooked into every dish and time spent on every home cooked recipe, so that every aroma, every bite, every sip and every gathering is memorable. We've spent more than 80 years creating a recipe for something much greater than a place for a lunch break or night out. It's a place to share (or keep the whole plate to yourself), a place where you always have a seat ready at the table and a place where you're always part of the family.

    This is my new favorite for brunch. I have already book again! The service was exceptional! The best price for Bottomless mimosas in town and they were truly bottomless. The food was excellent and also priced very well. The restaurant is beautiful, spacious, and quiet. I highly recommend!

    Service and food on point. Management needs to add additional staff when bar is slammed. The two working last night could barely keep up and asked others to assist.

    We sat right away. Waitress never came. Finally ordered 2 beers, which finally arrived when we were almost finished with our awful food. The shrimp fell apart when we tried to peel them, therefore, making them mostly impossible to consume. The shrimp and grits were tasteless. I do not know how this restaurant has the star raing they do???

    I was a little disappointed. I ordered the combo fish and shrimp. Shrimp were exceptionally small and the fish were small pieces(small slivers). This presentation was NOT the norm.

    Service was superb! Very friendly and outgoing! Food was tasty and nicely prepared. I especially liked that some items on menu came as a large portion or a small one. I had a small portion of grilled catfish with green beans and mashed potatoes. Perfect size for me and the price was very reasonable. I would definitely recommend Don’s to a friend.

    Closing time advertised as 11:00. Server rushed us to order because they were closing at 9. Then rushed us to be able to clear the table because the dishwashers were rushing him. It was New Year’s Eve with special friends. They should have posted the time change.

    Casual dining made yummy. The seafood salad was loaded with shrimp and crab with a tasty house made remoulade dressing. Shrimp and grits very flavorful, but the grits a little soupy for our taste. Short wine list, but a nice well priced selection. Our server was extremely personable, made the restaurant experience even more enjoyable

    Good basic seafood place. Excellent cocktails and fried crab claws. The retirement home Christmas music playing was awful though and killed the mood. It was November 28. The house special Paloma was outstanding and the crab claws were some of the best I’ve ever had. Husband said the shrimp and grits was a solid choice.

    The food was unflavorful. I was disappointed that the shrimp were not fully deveined. For the price they should be and the size should be bigger. The shrimp gumbo was muddy and I didn’t see any other than shrimp. No vegetables or anything else. The bar drinks & service were good. They’re the only redeeming thing. Not returning.

    Party of 3 went for half price oysters. After being seated we were told it would be 45 minute minimum wait for oysters. Our party decided to order some raw oysters and items off the menu. The food was average.
