My wife and I met our son here for dinner while visiting Palm Desert. We had heard good things about the restaurant from locals and decided to give it a try. The waiter told us an interesting story about the founder - Marie Callendar's son - and said that, yes, the restaurant was named after the pig, Babe, even though... More

Honestly the two large metal pigs atrracted our attention. We almost always "trip advisor" restaurants before we go and this time we did not. Stopped for lunch today and were pleasantly surprised. I do not regularly drink beer but as Babe's is a micro-brewery I thought I should try a beer. The waitress's suggestion was spot on. Two of us... More

Many large metal "babes" the pig greet you as you enter this bbq/brewery eatery in The River section collection of shops and restaurants. The perimeter location makes for easy parking and a short walk to the entrance, but away from the water feature portion of the area. There are different seating areas, including a smallish outdoor misted area, elevated bar... More

Ate here 2 years running when on vacation in Palm Desert. This year ate here several times! Food - OUTSTANDING! Like nothing anywhere in the UK. Excellent quality, fabulous flavours. Pulled Pork fantastically tasty but the St Louis Ribs have to be tried to be believed. Drinks - EXCELLENT! Micro brewery beers brewed on site. My personal favourite is the... More

Had dinner after a movie recently. I ordered the St Louis ribs (half rack). They were tender and came off the bone and they had a tasty BBQ sauce. My companion had the tri tip menu item and I tasted some. As is typical of tri tip is was not the most tender cut of meat, but had a nice... More

It is close to the Hilton Garden Inn hotel. If you like meat it is good place to go. They have a variety of BBQ beef, pork & chicken. Their micro brew is nice and prices are not bad. It can get crowed but middle of the week is really nice.

We love Babe's. Usually we order the pulled pork sandwich which is terrific but the seafood salad is also excellent. Nice outdoor patio with misters - too warm this trip so we ate indoors.
