Saturday night dinner wasn't very busy our waiter Joseph was great The seafood gumbo and creamy crab bisque was spot on ! Great selection of fresh fish. We had the scallops which were very good and the mixed grill but changed the fish to the red fish and it was great. Highly recommend a visit

It helps to have the Landry's card. One gets special treatment. The food is typical of good quality Louisiana meals. The food delivery is well timed. This is one of our favorites for special occasions.

Love going to this place. They always take great care of us and the seafood it always fresh. We always get the sea bass and share it between the two of us. It is wonderful.

The calamari appetizer looked great but the calamari was rubbery because it was overcooked. Tuna ordered medium rare was overcooked to well done. Heavy breaking on the fried shrimp. Cole slaw smelled like old grease. I keep wanting to like this place but this was 3rd and last visit. The remodeled Red Lobster in the same area is a better... More

We have been to Babin's before and it's never top notch but surely worth it if you want fresh seafood. I mean I don't expect haute cusine from a CHAIN restaurant. Of course it's all made from the same recipe and probably pre-prepared ingredients for most parts. However, I would like to think the seafood is fresh as they claim.... More

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
