Great Fish and Healthy Side Options!

I visited Babin's while staying over for a business trip. I ordered the creole gumbo, blackened Mahi, sweet Potato and seasonal veggies. The gumbo was tasty. Probably not the best that I have ever had, but no slouch either. For the main course: The Mahi was seasoned and grilled perfectly. Baked... read more

This was my husband's favorite restaurant and we came frequently. The service was quick and friendly. The stingrays and oysters were very tasty. Sat in the bar watching the football playoffs and talking. No complaints.

Had the lunch grilled Tilapia with green beans and a Greek salad. Greek salad was very tasty and a great side as was the green beans. Tilapia was very good grilled. All food was fresh. Clean restaurant and restrooms. Very friendly and helpful staff. Yes, we will enjoy future meals at Babin's.

Ordered at the bar tonight and had this salad. It was ok. The best thing was that the scallop, and yes there was only one, was cooked perfectly and they were nice enough to substitute blue cheese for the balsamic dressing. The shrimp were a bit dry/overcooked and not crazy about the green mix used for the salad base. It... More

The food was fine, but certainly not outstanding. The service was not great, however. I ate in a mostly empty bar area and the bartender was more interested in cleaning up and talking to a few regulars than keeping my drink full. With all the options in the area, I will not go back.

Attended a meeting with the Society of the 3rd Infantry Division. The provided excellent service for our large group. All were pleased with the different menu items they selected. The crayfish etouffee was very good and like you get in southwest Louisiana

My new favorite Landry's restaurant. A wonderful selection of fresh seafood along with some local favorites like delicious frog legs. Nice selection of beer and wine to accompany the meal too. Out waitress was young but well versed in the food and drink and provided prompt service. I highly recommend for entertaining clines and will certainly return here

This is most definitely the best Cajun/ seafood that I have ever had. The fondue appetizer was awesome and the crawfish plate with étouffée and fried tails was perfect. And my husband, who doesn't even really like seafood that much, cannot stop talking about the blackened shrimp po boy. We have another trip to Houston planned soon, and this place... More

I would give this restaurant an average at best review. They have an extensive menu which is why they probably just do it all just average. It does beat the other place that sounds like Dead Lobster though.

We visited Babin's in search of a good fish dinner. It had been a few years since we had been to Babin's, and were looking forward to a good meal. I ordered the Barramundi (blackened) and my wife ordered the Tilapia (broiled). The tilapia tasted like soap. Both were overcooked to the point of being dry. Steamed broccoli side was... More
