Needs improvement

This place is your typical red-neck bar serving food. The service is poor and need of improvement. The food is mediocre at best. I live in Lakeville and would welcome a bit of class to Babes as it is convenient. If the owner would improve the food and clean it up a bit business would improve. Skip... read more

Babe's is a neighborhood sports bar. They support the local community. It's the type of place where you walk in and feel comfortable. Large screen TVs everywhere showing all types of games. Every night except Sunday has a special event. Live music, Open mic, Dance party. The food and service is very good. My wife and I have been there... More

Terrible Service The Bartender Was Rude To Us. If We Had Been Regulars I'm Sure We Would Have Been Treated Differently. I Was Harassed For Being Of Color By The customer While I Was Leaving All The Way To My car. When We Walked In Everyone Stopped And Stared I Had A Bad Feeling About The Place From The Start....

They made an error by booking a benefit and a going away party on the same night. It was elbow to elbow and hard to find a place to sit. The music speakers sucked by being distorted and were way too loud. I was impressed how the staff hustled for how busy they were. I would go again.

Nothing fancy about this place, but the food is generally good and the service is good as well. Nice selection of food and not terribly high priced.

I was working in Lakeville for over a month and had to eat out every day. This was my favorite stop. It features a friendly staff, a wide range of local folks, really inexpensive tasty food, and the best spot for local nightlife. The happy hour specials for food are really a great deal. Also, you can go here for... More

Nice bar and place to watch sports, but most of the food is deep fried from a from frozen box. Ribs are OK but there are much better places for ribs.

A staple in the heart of Lakeville. From snow to the sun, Babe's is always a great spot to enjoy a sports bar & grill atmosphere. The staff is friendly. Great food & daily specials. The bar has a great selection too. The buffalo wings are delicious, with a wide range of flavors to enjoy. Y0u may have to claim... More

Pretty good for an independent bar & restaurant. Food was pretty good, I like getting spaghetti with my sub as an interesting side item. Only complaint was that service on a Sunday night was pretty slow and the server sighed when we told her our party was 9 people. Sorry, we'll bring a smaller group next time. But fun place... More
