A Rich History
The Don's Seafood story began with a simple idea – a vision for a place to savor great meals and cocktails. It was 1934, just one year after Prohibition had been lifted across the United States, when founder Don Landry recognized an incredible opportunity. At just 24 years old, he borrowed $400 from his uncle to establish a bar and restaurant in downtown Lafayette, Louisiana, with a timeless menu of fresh, local seafood and, of course, alcoholic beverages. Thus, the first Don’s Seafood opened its doors.
Four generations later, Don's legacy continues with family. Our Louisiana restaurants offer exciting new flavors alongside classic favorites, all built on a foundation of Cajun flavors and fresh-caught seafood. To us, customers are family, and just as you'd treat a guest in your home, we invite you into ours for memorable Southern cuisine and an unforgettable experience with every visit.

Since the beginning, South Louisiana locals and visitors have been drawn to the authentic Cajun cuisine and colorful atmosphere at Don’s Seafood. Traditional family recipes and modern-day creations give our menu an appeal to every palate, including:
