We visited Danton’s Friday night after our son played in a concert. Since we were so close to the gulf we wanted to try a seafood place that was not a chain. We were not disappointed. The place has an upscale, if slightly dated feel with wood paneling and comfy booths.

We started out with local beers. Our waiter was a real professional. He walked us through the menu and pointed out what was best and what was line-caught. He was attentive but not overbearing throughout the meal.

We shared the tasty crab “fingers” while we went over the menu. I had blackened red snapper which was fresh and perfectly cooked. My wife had fried stuffed shrimp which she shared and was really good. All entrees come with a choice of two sides. We split a dessert of ice cream rolled in pecans then dipped in chocolate. Simple but satisfying.

The restaurant has valet parking, but they charge $6 for it. Overall, a very pleasant evening.

Reserved a table for myself and a business associate I had not seen in a year. It has been a few years since I have been to Danton’s and after last night realized it has been far too long.

Started with the sweet corn and crab bisque which was outstanding. Could have made a meal out of a large bowl and some garlic bread! Main course was Cajun scallops. Scallops were cooked perfectly, and had the pasta side to mop up the juices. Passed on dessert since I have been over indulging at Rodeo.

Food and service are great. Love the southern seafood focus and the atmosphere.

The server, James Baker, was excellent!! He met our every need and apologized profusely when I sent my crawfish bisque back because it was so salty. The owner also came over and offered me another entree and took the bisque off the bill and gave me a free dessert (key lime pie) which was delicious! We had numerous appetizers which were cooked to perfection! We like to eat here for special occasions.

Waitstaff was attentive, refilled water & beverages as soon as glasses neared empty. The food was succulent and flavorful to the last bite. Our #1 go-to after a long day at MDA.
