We dinned at 6Pm, not a really busy time on a Friday night for this area. Our server was being trained however the trainer was Terrible. Neither of the servers listened, they forgot soup request , mine came after others had finished there appetizers. The soup when it arrived was lukewarm & not like any bisque I have ever eaten...

Nice atmosphere, need to book a table ahead. Excellent fish prepared in dozens of different ways. Everydays catch of the day ensures a real fresh fish. Great salads

Ate here this past Saturday and it was great. The food was tasty and fresh. I suggest the stuffed shrimp. My wife had the shrimp and grits and it was good also. The service matched the good food.

Very good seafood. Have not had a bad dish. You should sign up for the Landry's card.The service and food always good. Atmosphere is good. Lots of special fish you can't find everywhere.

Stopped by before a visit to Cythnia Woods. Our server (Eric) was excellent and attentive offering choices and suggestions that paired well with what we were looking for. More so, other servers and employees were polite and helpful. Food was very good and we highly recommend the bread pudding. If we are in The Woodlands again, we would definitely visit.

We've been here several times over the years, and watched as it has slowly gone downhill. Recently we went again with another couple, hoping for a better experience. Unfortunately, it just wasn't to be. First, the good. No reservations needed on a Thursday at 7pm because the restaurant was only half full, which might have been a forewarning. The restaurant...

We've been here several times and the food is OK....service is above average. There's just a lot of other choices when it comes to seafood places.

Love the fired shrimp. The only thing I have a quibble with is sometimes the host/hostess gets a bit off track. (As in assigning waitstaff to my table.)

Babin's is part of the Landry's restaurant empire. As expected, they deliver a reliable and consistent seafood experience, although it is not particularly creative or unique. Fresh fish offerings on the chalkboard reflect seasonal catch with the chance to select prep technique and toppings. Entrees come with choice of two sides, ranging from a very good Greek salad to Creole... More

Although we had gone in search of boiled crawfish, the wife and I ended up enjoying boiled shrimp and the half-and-half (fried crawfish and crawfish etouffee). The fried crawfish was seasoned, very lightly battered and pan fried. The result was delicate, flavorful and delicious and bore no resemblance to the deep fried wad of breading that is usually found. It... More
