Babin’s Seafood House Katy
There is nothing like soul-satisfying New Orleans style seafood. Sample our world-famous gumbo, made with dark brown roux and the Cajun trinity (bell peppers, onions and celery). Blue crabs from the Gulf of Mexico, catfish from the Atchafalaya swamps, oysters shucked to order and a whole fish filleted in-house bring New Orleans right to your table.

First time for a while. Menu reduced but they went out of their way to make what my wife really wanted top marks. Crab Cakes particularly tasty. Well done
Server was very nice. I ordered the Golden tile and it was sent to the table over cooked and not up to par.
Dined New Year’s Eve and there were some problems. First off, my son-in-law ordered an Old Fashioned with Woodford bourbon & our waiter said they didn’t have that. We all decided to have wine & ordered a bottle of Sonoma Cutrer chardonnay. We were told they were “out.” So we ordered Jordan, which is more expensive. When we tried to order a second bottle of Jordan, we were told they were “out.” We asked to speak to a manager & told him of our frustration. He somehow “found” another bottle of Sonoma Cutrer. We thought this was very strange, especially on New Year’s Eve. Our waiter was nice, but nervous. He spilled some of our wine while pouring it. We had to remind him of several things we had previously requested. However, the food was very good! It was an off night for service, even though they were not busy, but the seafood was delicious.
Loved the evening. We had a great waitress and the food was delicious.
New year! Awesome! Keisha our server was FABULOUS!!! Hard working lady totally on point!!!!
Our server was excellent. She was very friendly & made sure we were doing good. The food was very good. My Golden Tile Could have had more seasoning on it. The fish portion size was a little small. My baked sweet potato was huge.
Very good experience.
Food was great, including the chocolate pecan pie!
Food and service were very good as usual, even on a holiday. However, the server did not ask if we were members to the Landry's Select Club and I never thought to show my card. I remembered after getting home and logged into my account to enter our dining information from the receipt. Unfortunately I learned that once you leave the restaurant you can not get credit and points for any purchases. Servers should be trained to automatically ask all customers if they are members of the Select Club.
Babin's was once our favorite place for seafood... unfortunately it seems to no longer be so great.
Ordered the Mixed Grill with a fish upgrade, to be done blackened, and specifically told them "spicy". It was bland. Fish was cooked ok, but the only spice was salt. Our favorite appetizer, the Shrimp Embrochete, has been replaced with something I strongly suspect comes from Salt Grass Steakhouse (also Landry's).. and it was "ok", nothing special.
Service was pretty good. Kid so new he was still a bit green, but he was busting his butt trying.
We have seen this decline in both Babin's and Salt Grass. I'm afraid we will no longer be frequenting either.
Good for everyday casual dining or celebrations with family and friends
Will be back again for sure
Most of the food was cold/heated unevenly (as if it had been microwaved), except for the fried catfish nuggets that appeared to be freshly fried. The kitchen (not the waitress) messed up the order with white instead of dirty rice. The gumbo was more like soup, not much of a roux base and almost bland. Overall a very average meal. We were hoping for a great experience that we had at the Woodlands Babin's.
Had a great meal here last weekend. Three out of four of us loved our food, the fourth found their salmon to be a bit greasy. Absolutely loved our server Keisha- an fantastic and efficient bundle of happy energy. Was surprised to see a table of about 20 people seated nearby, indoors - not a concern to me, but it could be for others.
Made a reservation a week in advance. Wanted the turkey plate that was advertised. Arrive 4:50 and ordered the thanksgiving turkey and ham plate special. Server returns and tell us that they are out of turkey!! This is the first time I can remember not having turkey of thanksgiving day. Even when I was in Vietnam I had turkey on Thanksgiving Day. Very disappointed that they could not plan better.
Went for their Thanksgiving dinner and the food and service were outstanding. The waitress did a great job and was very helpful in arranging an extra meal to take to a friend.
Gone mediocre, probably because of the times, gumbo poor, bread stale and so on
Always a great place that never disappoints. Food is always first rate the service is always good but this trip it was outstanding
Wonderful service! My servers name was Michael and he was fabulous. Very attentive friendly and he had a great personality!
We did not enjoy the food from this location. We have eating at babins at willowbrook. We always have enjoyed it.
They were not really crowded- my fries came out cold and greasy
Wife’s green beans cold.
Yes they brought out fresh ... but how, if you’re busy, how can you bring out sub pare food.
Asked for cocktail sauce had already finished my catfish before they brought it out...
This is Landry’s- it should be better than that.
Most likely want be back anytime soon
Reasonable place for dining with decent food and good however acoustics are bad so don’t plan normal level conversation
Babins did a fabulous job of spacing all the parties within the restaurant. As usual, the food was amazing and the portion large enough that I took half of mine home.
We dine here often. Food always great. Was much slower than normal this time. But maybe staff cut back due to COVID
Our service was fine but the quality of food was poor for that style and level of a restaurant. Ordered the babins mixed grill, the fished had no taste and could definitely tell it was frozen right before it was cooked. Everything seemed to be grilled quickly on top that has been used a lot . Only thing that tasted decent was the crab cakes
Food was great and waitress was better than the food.
Catfish dinner is a wonderful entree! Shrimp in Caesar salad very overcooked. Waitstaff is accommodating and friendly.
The seafood platter for lunch was excellent with the complimentary bread. The N’AWLINS PUNCH drink from the bar was pretty good. Bread pudding was excellent.
Great place for couples!
Had our 33rd anniversary dinner.
Great service and good food!
The service was great but I was not excited about the food.
We had pretty good service. I just wonder what happened to servers giving you their names? Anyway, my pasta was bland and flavorless. Blackened shrimp had no flavor. Catfish was delicious!!! Fries were old and rubbery! We reluctantly mentioned it to our server and he promptly brought out a new fresh order. Thanks!!! my Dr Pepper was not good!! I will say that the crab bisque was really good! I was hyped for a really great Cajun seafood meal and it was not that at all!! I don’t eat fries food or pasta very much so when I do, it needs to be worth it! This is was not! We will not be returning!
The location is hard to get to. The service was excellent and the food was good.
Experience was good. Our server was attentive to everything we needed. Very courteous.
The food was prepared very well. Overall the experience was great.
Always enjoy our meal at Babins. Great service, good food. Out go to place for seafood out!
The food and service here have always been fantastic. The ambiance is terrific if you like the feeling of being in New Orleans. Many of the dishes are the same as you would get at a Creole/Cajun New Orleans seafood restaurant. COVID-19 has caused a minor impact in that not as many people can dine at once thus a scaled down menu from previous visits. The virus also appears to have affected the portion size. The side salad was noticeably smaller then previous visits and the red beans and rice had less sausage included with the dish. In spite of these minor items it is still one of our favorite seafood places to eat.
The hostess, Lindsey, greeted us with a smile, even behind the mask and our server Paulina was fantastic! Paulina was attentive, lively and easily one of the best servers I have had ever!!
I hate to write this because my family has always enjoyed this Babin’s location, but after our recent experience this past Saturday we will never return. Service was absolutely abysmal. Terrible would be an understatement, especially considering the amount of money we were planning on spending. Water service never happened. My wife’s glass of water sat empty and was never refilled once the entire night. As soon as our appetizer was brought I ordered another drink from my waitress. It showed up twenty five minutes later. At the twenty minute mark halfway through our meal I flagged down another server since our waitress never checked on us. I explained to him that I was still waiting for a drink and that we would also like a beer. Well, that beer never showed up. When the mixed drink finally arrived after we had finished our meal I politely declined it. On top of all the terrible drink service our waitress never once checked on us throughout our meal, never noticed our waters were bone dry, never noticed we never received our alcoholic drinks. All in all it was very disappointing considering we were planning on drinking multiple mixed drinks as well as ordering a dessert which we never had the chance to do since she never checked on us and gave us the opportunity.
I could maybe understand the bad service if they were super packed, but considering the Covid guidelines you’d think we would’ve received much better attention. It’s a shame because the food was good, but oh well. Pappadeux will get our business now.
The bread was outstanding and the stuffed flounder was awesome. Just wish their crawfish were a bit larger.
All in all, a very good dining experience. Anything that was not perfect, our server made sure we were taken care of. The food was great and service good. I'll definitely eat there again.
