So it had been a few years since the last time I went to Abe's, but a few weeks ago I had a Fried Catfish itch I had to scratch... and ended up at Abe's. Oh my lord... the fried catfish is to die for! Get a fried catfish basket (comes with Fries) and a drink, and it comes with... More

Good catfish and ettouffe meal. The twice baked potato was a little overdone.the green beans were good but how do you mess them up. This is a order at the counter and pay then they will bring the food to you.

Eaten here a few times for lunch. Always good food. Would recommend to anyone who wants something different than the regular lunch flair.

We love Abe's! Their cornbread and desserts are amazing. This is a family favorite in the Clear Lake area! My son - who is gluten free - can always find something appetizing on the menu. A definite plus for me!

Excellent food with flavors that will excite anyone's tastebuds. You order and then are given a number and they bring the food to your table. You may also like to purchase many items that can be cooked at home.

Catfish basket and shrimp poboy were both delicious and filling! We also got the sampler platter (since this was our first time, I wanted to be able to try several different menu items). The gumbo was great, as was the chowder. Fried corn nuggets are very good! Cornbread is sweet. All in all - we all left satisfied, and will... More

Had heard this place served excellent Cajun food. My crawfish ettouffe was served burned. Boudin was not good. Gumbo seemed previously frozen. The appetizers were good and so was the salad. Service was ok. They needed to turn on the AC. They did send me home with a big slice of hummingbird cake and a fresh ettouffe to replace the... More

We stopped here after being referred to by family who lives nearby. The staff was friendly & attentive. The food was fresh & flavorful. The portions were generous. They even have dishes frozen for purchase. I wish we didn't live 1 hr. away, as I'd like to return.

I am from Louisiana and I will tell you this.... the State of Louisiana should file suit against this place to make them remove the word cajun from there name. One of our diners had something called shrimp royal..... not in my opinion. it was just small, farm raised shrimp in a goopy butter oil sauce of some kind. I... More
