Dupuy’s Seafood & Steak
“Dupuy’s was established by Joseph Dupuy in 1869. Mr. Dupuy harvested his own oysters and sold them for 5 cents a dozen. Joseph started a tradition, which would continue through three generations. Dupuy’s has enjoyed over 146 years of success in its original location. World-famous for the oysters on the 1/2 shell and outstanding seafood, Dupuy’s is continuing the tradition by owners Jody and Tonya Hebert and will continue to do so for many years to come.”
This past week, my mom and I traveled to Abbeville to try Dupuy’s Seafood & Steak restaurant. As we approached the restaurant, the exterior of Dupuy’s offered character, while keeping the historic features of the restaurant. Dupuy’s is located in the downtown area of Abbeville, LA.
The restaurant had the feel of a neighborhood restaurant that locals frequent often.
We entered the restaurant and immediately noticed that the restaurant had a lot of history. A cajun theme throughout with a few different seating areas/options.
We were seated in the newly renovated area which was the bar area. The bar area was formerly an old post office, that Dupuy’s restaurant purchased and renovated.
The waitress came to our table and my mom and I ordered our drinks. I ordered a mocktail, the bartender created me a signature drink.
The drink was delicious.
The bartender also created a Mocktail that was a spin on a Sunrise cocktail. SO good. Presented nicely!
As we perused through the menu, there were several appetizers that caught our eye. The 3 on 3 Oysters Sampler sounded amazing. We started with that appetizer. The oysters arrived to the table pipping hot and were delicious.
The Oysters de Ville, oysters served on a 1/2 shell, char-grilled in a garlic herb butter, topped with Parmesan and Romano. This oyster was well-seasoned and the butter sauce was superb.
Next was the Oyster Rockefeller, oysters on the the half shell, topped with homemade spinach cream sauce, and mozzarella cheese. The oysters were cheesy and grilled to perfection. I loved the balance of the cheese and spinach ratio. So good!
Dupuy’s boudin balls are a family favorite. The boudin balls are a old-fashioned style boudin ball. Crusty with a good mixture of rice and meat in the boudin ball.
The boudin balls were delicious by themselves but the manager told us about the housemade Dupuy’s sauce. Oh my, it was so good with the boudin balls. My mouth is watering just thinking about the boudin balls right now.
We also order the Combo appetizer which was a must try! Fried fish bites, fried jumbo shrimp, fried oysters and fried green beans that was served with 3 dipping sauces. Cocktail sauce, tartar sauce and the housemade sauce.
We absolutely loved the combo appetizer. A good choice that gives you the opportunity to try a few of the different options on the appetizer menu. Everything on the appetizer platter was fried and served to perfection.
Mom and I decided to share an entree. Dupuy’s has a few off menu items. One of the Chef specials that Dupuy’s served a few weeks ago was a dish that didn’t have a name per say. The dish consisted of Stuffed shrimp that was a butterflied gulf shrimp that was stuffed with homemade crab and cornbread stuffing. SO Good!!!
Served with Louisiana jumbo lump crab meat, white wine, diced tomatoes and capers cream sauce, served over angel hair pasta. Incredible. A really good sauce!
We ended our lunch with a delicious dessert, bread pudding. I have to be honest, we were stuffed at this point. No room at all for more than two bites. But the bread pudding was superb. The sauce of the bread pudding was incredibly delicious.
Our lunch at Dupuy’s was absolutely amazing. The service was impeccable. All the food was served pipping hot and seasoned perfectly. A really good dining experience.
