Lovely meal

It took a long time to get waited on. When we got a server he was excellent. The stuffed mushrooms were wonderful. The chopped salad was fresh and crisp. The beer batter cod fish and chips was excellent and the broiled scallops with baked sweet potato was well prepared and flavorful. A very... read more

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

Arrived @ 8pm Friday of Memorial Day weekend. 4 tables occupied. Rushed all evening by staff, not all items ordered arrived with the meal. What did was so-so. Fries and strings were cold. The rest was unremarkable. Server cleared the table of all condiments and refilled at table next to us during our meal. Won't go back.

My late husband would drive down from Huntsville every few months. We always came and enjoyed multiple appetizers and drinks at the bar. Today to honor his birthday I came and enjoyed fresh oysters, delicious stingrays and calamari. Drank a Cresent City swirl in his honor. Another wonderful experience. Thank you.

Had lunch. Ordered 1/2 and 1/2 crawfish tails. The fried tails were the smallest I have ever seen. Asked for cocktail sauce. After I tracked down the waiter several minutes later, was told they had run out of cocktail sauce but the kitchen was mixing up more! Several minutes later the cocktail sauce finally came out. Lunch was just OK.... More

If you love great seafood, Babin's in The Woodlands, TX is hands down the place to go. It was my choice for my "birthday lunch" this year, and it didn't let me down. I ordered the Atchafalaya blackened catfish meal with a Greek salad. I am very picky about my Greek salads, and this one was top-notch. The blackened catfish... More

Usually enjoy eating here-. this time slow service, food going to wrong table, and having to hunt someone down just to pay made it totally unenjoyably. Nice server, but he was wearing too many hats. :(

This is a great seafood place with fresh fish catches. I had a golden tile grilled with the Babins specialty sauce topping (shrimp, crab, scallops, and mushrooms). The food was delicious and we will definitely be back.

This place was really good. The food was excellent. Our waitress was friendly and accommodating. The service was timely. I had the Greek side salad and the Tilapia and they were both very delicious. We had the shrimp cocktail as an appetizer and I loved it too!
