So good to eat fresh seafood. Babins had a delivery of fresh fish just as we arrived at the restaurant. My fav fish is flounder but I have never seen a flounder as big as this! It was filleted tableside and I had it grilled with a prawn/white wine sauce. Delicious and the best I have ever eaten.

This is a new Orleans themed restaurant. Most of the items on the menu reflect that influence. I have not eaten from the menu. They also offer fresh catch fish, many varieties. I am a fan of red snapper. I always order it broiled plain. It is so fresh that it stands well on its own. It comes with 2... More

Awesome happy hour! Sunday all day. Nothing beats Cajun food and libations. The highest happy hour price is $5.00.

We had a group of 10 people and arrived for a late lunch (2:00) on a Monday. The place was almost empty. It took a while to be seated so I guess they had a hard time putting three tables together for us. The waitstaff seemed indifferent- absolutely no personality. The food was mediocre- I had fried shrimp and it... More

Yes it is part of a chain-but waiter was terrific and food was well prepared. Having an early dinner made for a quiet time - we could actually talk and enjoy our meal.

We've been eating here for years and are happy to report that the meals are pretty consistent which is difficult in even the best of restaurants. We often stop in to enjoy their happy hour menu in the bar area. Also, the service is good and friendly.

I went here with higher expectations. And while I can't say I was completely pleased (service was great) overall because the food was just fair. I would go back and try something different than what I ordered. I usually like the Landry's restaurants, and find them well run with very good food . This was just okay...

The food at Babins is very good. It is Louisiana style in taste and atmosphere. My only issue is it is usually very crowded and noisy! Would like to see them attenuate the sound somehow. The fresh fish fixed multiple ways is tasty and the side dishes are done well. All in all a good place to eat!

Love their fresh fish selection everyday! Great atmosphere and great food overall. It has a great bar that serves food for singles as well.
