This restaurant was very close to the highway, to a number of nearby hotels, very clean, bright and cheerful. Pizza was an excellent thin crust and delicious. Service very good. Reasonable prices.

Visited this place with a few friends for lunch. The staff was at the front door but wasn't really friendly. 🤔The food was mediocre at best. Our friends paid for our food. We wouldn't come back on our own.😕

Always a nice place to eat. Great happy Hour snacks and venue. Summertime on outside deck with specials is gun. Menu is varied and offers fine choice of nicely priced meals.

This is a constant quality food place. They have a express lunch if you're in a hurry. Extensive menu and very friendly waitstaff.

We are regular customers of Babe's since we live a couple miles away and usually get a pretty decent meal. However, I would not recommend the eggplant parmesan. When it was brought to the table it looked like an experiment. There was a breaded circle with a little bit of eggplant in it, topped with a small amount of sauce... More

Are son is looking to attend Utica College in the fall. He came for an overnight visit and we stayed down the street at the Hampton Inn. Coaches suggested we try out Babe's for dinner. Had the Saturday special- steak (cooked medium and was perfect) with chicken riggies- delicious (a little spicy but very tasty with a white sauce) and... More

Visited Babe's to have a late dinner and drink. We were seated in the bar area which was bustling with people out on a Friday night. The waitress was very attentive to serving us and accommodating when asked for separate checks from the couples at our table. I am usually skeptical of a restaurant that offers almost every kind of... More

This was a great. The people I were with said it was one of the best fish fries they have had in a long time. We had a great waitress. The atmosphere was nice and lively but still family friendly. If you are looking for local fare and great prices give this place a try. Be careful to find the... More

We stopped here after attending a show at the Stanley. We were staying across the street, so we stopped in for a late dinner. It was very dim, I'm sure to hide the filth. We ordered an appetizer, a beer and soda. The beer was warm, and tasted like it had been sitting around for years. The appetizer was cold.... More

Babe's is a great hangout. I stayed at the hotel across the street and was happy to know they were there. The food and drinks are good, the service is great. I was pleasantly surprised to see how many regulars they have and how long they've been regulars. It speaks a lot of the place. I also like that the... More
