First visit. Big menu. Decided on fried seafood. Calamari was good and accompanied by nice remoulade sauce. In fact we asked for more remoulade sauce for our entrees - it was better than the tarter sauce. Deep sea lemonade drink as ok. Good size Greek salad before the meal. Good flavor. Big easy shrimp platter was plentiful for my husband... More

Chose Babin's for a mid-week business lunch with co-workers. Service was superb; server's name was unusual - Rook - but his attention to detail was top notch. There was confusion about one individual's order, but that was immediately corrected - and comped! Didn't upset us at all, yet Rook was overwhelmed that we took it in stride. Manager delivered the...

We enjoyed our dinner there. Ambiance was nice. Service was sketchy to start but improved through out the meal. Cold cocktails and fresh oysters to start. Blackened catfish with etoufeé was enjoyed by my husband. My shrimp and grits was really good. Grits were light and flavored with bacon, not heavy and over cheesy like some places. Other entrees that... More

I love eating at Babins, but I only wished there were more locations!! Today I had blackened Crab Cakes with the sweet potato, green beans, and a Greek salad. My friend had Shrimp and Grits on the $10 lunch menu and said it was AMAZING! I absolutely love the food and atmosphere at Babins. You almost feel like you're in... More

One of my favorite places. The service was quick and friendly. The stingrays were very good, hot and well seasoned. The fish and chips was well prepared and the servings were generous.

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.
