We were on a road trip and stayed overnight in Hammond, Louisiana. My husband said to try and find us a good seafood restaurant, and I found Don's Seafood through TripAdvisor. It did not disappoint! This was the perfect place for a good seafood platter-type seafood meal. The tables next to us were devouring buckets of crawfish while we enjoyed... More

We had dinner and although it was their "busiest" time we were seated immediately. Service was quick, pleasant and helpful. Since this was our first visit, we ordered a bunch of appetizers as well as a seafood salad and then we saved all of it. Everything was delicious- zydeco shrimp, jacked-up shrimp, hush puppies and the salad.

Do you remember how Red Lobster was a highly recommended place during the 1980s...? Well thats how this place makes me feel now. I tried my 1st crawfish...they were good! I would describe them as sweeter than shrimp and the texture of lobster. I was fortunate to have a waiter named Leonard. He is quite energetic and enthusiastic! I was... More

I always stop at Don's on my way through Hammond and it's actually become a tradition. From the time you walk in you feel welcome and the staff are great. It's a great family seafood place with a wide range of food on the menu if you don't care for seafood. I've been there a dozen times and have never... More

Established in 1934 and still frying up the best catfish. It's so light and perfectly seasoned. Thursday from 5 to 9 you can enjoy all you can eat fried shrimp and fried catfish for $17.99. You will not be disappointed.

This is possibly my favorite restaurant in Hammond, LA for seafood gumbo. The atmosphere and menu are great for locals and tourists alike.

Better seafood can be had cheaper elsewhere. It has been a while since we've been to Don's and now I remember why. My companion said the crawfish were dried out and, of course, expensive. I do not care much for fish but I do like shrimp, crab and gumbo. Most of the dishes, however, are too spicy for me and... More

We were traveling to New Orleans and the reason I chose those restaurant was because of the reviews; however it was overpriced for the quality of food. Our service was great from the host to our server. Very friendly and we never ran out of drinks. We ordered the oysters and spinach dip and both of those were good. Our... More

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.
