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.
To us our customers are family, and just like you treat a guest in your home, we prepare food with an eye for every little detail and a bit of creative flair. South Louisiana locals and visitors have been drawn to Don’s authentic Cajun cuisine for more than 80 years. Maybe it’s a taste that stirs memories from visits past, or maybe it’s trying something new that makes the present just a little more savory.
Our Cajun recipes give Louisiana seafood an unshakeable soul that adds a splash of flavor to an already colorful atmosphere. Menu selections including traditional Landry family recipes, and more recent original creations like Zydeco Shrimp, are well worth repeat visits.
