Very Fresh and Clean Oysters! I ordered the Babin's Seafood Grill. Scallops were cooked perfectly. Crab Cakes tasty and filled with crab meat. Tilapia and shrimp were a tad overcooked. Overall it was a good meal but to greasy. A little pricey for the amount...More

Numerous selections of fresh fish to select from each day. They like to push their Tile fish which is ok but not worth the price. All their fish is overpriced for the quality.

Had dinner with my wife here for a date night and it was awesome. We had oysters on the half shell and chargrilled oysters which were both terrific. I had etoufee and she had mahi mahi tacos. All was excellent. Would absolutely eat here again...More

We met friends @ Babin’s for a late lunch. My husband had the shrimp & grits. I had blacked redfish. They were both delicious. We ordered 2 desserts for the table. Babin’s bread pudding is huge and sooo yummy. Service was also very good.

We have not eaten here for a while, really not sure why. Sat down with my honey for a late lunch, we had some crab cakes which were presented wonderfully and really quite tasty. Cold adult beverage and a large Greek salad. Then the bread...More

It's nice to know there are people out there that still care if nice restaurants have a dress code. Thank you for asking, but, no, there is not a particular dress code. the standard business casual or jeans applies.
