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

We had an excellent server. Very friendly. Even introduced himself and shock our hands. They have very good food here. Have eaten here before when in The Woodlands.

This was the office favorite before we retired. Just visited here with friends today after being away for over a year and it is still a great place for fresh fish. The menu is varied, lots of great spicy offerings, fish choices come blackened/broiled/fried, service was fast and friendly. My fish was excellent with a wonderful topping (pontchartrain). Hubby’s fish... More

Went here for lunch. Had heard good things about it. We ordered from the lunch menu. I had the étouffée. It seemed like a somewhat small portion for the cost, but it was very good and nicely spicy. Others had the trout, they said it was very good. The service was good, and our waitress had no problem filling some... More

I read all of the reviews and even was recommended by a family member. Every person is entitled to their own taste, but I felt the fried seafood here was bland. Even the appetizers we had were just average. I had the stuffed flounder, which was probably just above average. The rest of my family just picked around their plates.... More
