I love good seafood and since moving to The Woodlands, TX 2 yrs ago, visited Babin's a minimum of once per month. Maybe my tast in restaurants has changed, but over time, the quality of the product has slowly declined.

One of the best places to eat in The Woodlands. You'd never expect it, situated right off of I-45 North as it is and carefully camouflaged in a seaside tavern motif, but this hidden gem has some of the best Louisiana-style cooking you're ever apt to find outside of Nawhlahns. Simply stated, the food here is fantastic. And the wait-staff... More

My daughter and I went here because I had a craving for good seafood. We were able to get in on the happy hour deals. We had coconut shrimp, seafood gumbo, and oysters on the half she'll. All were good. We then ordered a seafood avocado dip with chips and a seafood pasta with a Cajun cream sauce. The dip... More

Service was terrible. Hostess frowned, waitress didn't come to table for 20 minutes to get drink order. Food was cold, ice melted in drinks when we finally got them.

Another good meal. Met famly here for a lite lunch. The fish and chips were good as always and a very generous portion. The chicken ceasar salad was well prepared. The fried lunch platter was a hit. The bread and butter is always outstanding. Good service and nice environment.

Katie took care of us at lunch and it was great. Enjoyed the meal and the attention we received. Makes you feel you are part of the family. Travis, the manager helps see to it.

We try to go once a week to get great seafood. They always have fish of the day and many other specials. The salads are large, the crab bisque is hot, and the seafood can be spicy.

This is my favorite place to eat when in The Woodlands. If you like Cajun seafood, you'll love it! Love the décor too.

Well, we had never heard of this restaurant but were told that it was a seafood restaurant so we tried it. DON'T GO! The food was just 'ok' but the service was unbelievable! Zachary was our waiter, who was more impressed with himself than to take anyone's order and then when the order is taken, he is too busy with... More
