Our warm welcomed continued with our servers, including the owner of the restaurant who stopped by our table to ensure everything met our expectations. We started our dinner with a dozen freshly shucked oysters that... More

A very enjoyable old time restaurant. The menu was large and they specialize in food popular in the area. We had 3 different items and they were all very good. We also enjoyed that the place was fairly quiet. We would return if we are in the area again.

Took some friends that had never eaten there as I knew I could count on a good experience. As expected, the food and service was great and our friends loved it. It is great to know a place we can go to entertain folks and not worry whether or not it will be a good experience!

Dupuy's is the epitome of South Louisiana Cuisine. Oysters, great seafood, hometown charm and great service. If you want to get a sense of Abbeville and its culture, just walk inside, have a meal, and meet some great people.

Every time my husband and I are near Lafayette, we drive south to Abbeville just to have a Bloody Mary and the best oysters that can be found anywhere in the U.S. This week we were traveling with friend on their first visit to Louisiana. We arrived in the late afternoon before the restaurant opened, however, the bar was open.... More

Although this is best for oysters most of the food that I have tried is very good. As most restaurants int he area it is loud and there is no quiet area to relax and visit.

We had the Eggplant Abbeville, two perfectly cooked and crispy eggplant medallions smothered with jumbo lump crabmeat with a wonderful sauce, just divine. Then we had the 6oz filet mignon with garlic shrimp on top. Best filet mignon I ever had, the most tender and tasty.
