Don’s Originals

The first bites you taste at Don’s Seafood explode with flavor and liven up our already colorful atmosphere. That’s why we offer a variety of original family recipes that have drawn Louisianans and visitors to our restaurants time and time again. Be sure to try Don’s Original Jacked Up™ Oysters or Don’s Original Jacked Up™ Shrimp, charbroiled with bacon, jalapeños and pepper jack cheese. You can also opt for one of our more recent creations, Zydeco Shrimp, served fried with our homemade pepper jelly sauce. And our Seafood Spinach Dip is not to be missed, as creamed spinach and melted pepper jack cheese complement shrimp and crabmeat cooked the same way our founder did in 1934.

Beyond Seafood: Cajun Classics and More

It wouldn’t be a Louisiana restaurant without Cajun-inspired appetizers, and our take on these classics brings tradition to the forefront. Served with Lafayette sauce, our Boudin Balls made with pork and rice are a favorite, as well as our famous Blackened Alligator, Hush Puppies and fresh, briny Oysters on the Half Shell.

We haven’t forgotten the fried treats that everyone craves, including Camp Chicken (fried chicken tenders served with camp sauce), farm-raised Fried Alligator, Fried Crab Claws and freshly cut and battered-to-order Onion Rings. Choose a few to share with the table, order a beverage from our drinks menu and relax as you explore new flavors or savor old favorites.
