Visiting friends in Palm Desert and we decided to try this local brewery. Two surprises. First the in house beer was outstanding. Second, the BBQ ribs were fall off the bone delicious. Saw some negative reviews about the service but sitting at the bar, we had the best service possible. Attentive bartender with a great attitude (believe his name was... More

Better than average food combined with bad service makes for frustrating experience. Let me just say that the only thing the waitress got right was the appetizer. The service was slow and I got my meal at least 10 minutes before my husband got his. Really? Not a way to run a business.

Food was average, if you know Lucille's then you've had the best, Babes has the right format, however needs some work. I ordered a burger and it was more bread then meat and the meat patty had been frozen, to compensate Babes over seasoned the patty. Defineltynot worth 13.00. Sweet potato was perfect, maple butter and pecans. Would order again.... More

Had the ribs and they (1/2 St Louis and 1/2 Baby Back). I preferred the backs but both had lots of meat. Good service.

I went here for dinner while I was visiting the area. I had the bacon cheese burger with fries and my husband had the pulled pork sandwiches. We both enjoyed our food and the prices were reasonable. We liked the decor and will definitely go back.

They offer a barbeque lunch combo that is a good bargain for lunch that includes a choice of two meats and two sides. Their boneless short rib is the best bet on the menu.

Met a group of friends who were also visiting the area at Babe's for a nice night out. Although we didn't sit outside, the patio area of the restaurant looked for nice with twinkling lights and a large space. We were seated in the main dining room. Even though it was a fairly busy night, our server took his time... More

We went for a quick bite to eat having just arrived in Rancho Mirage. We stumbled upon Babes, and went in not expecting to much. The service was very attentive and the in-house micro brews were fantastic, We tried a couple each and they were exactly as explained by our waiter and of surprisingly god quality. The food was quite... More

We had dinner here on our first night in Palm Springs. Really nice place staff very helpful and friendly. Good choice on menu. Very impressive craft beer choices. My wife had the New York strip steak and it was very good. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
