Cool old movie poster and upbeat eclectic music. We had a variety of appetizers including toasted ravioli, cheesy fries, and chicken quesadillas. All very good. Only complaint is so-so service.

After a long drive, we stopped in Utica for a meal. We took a chance on Babe's and we are glad we did. Although it took a little time to take our order, the food we had was done quite well. The Utica greens were delicious. They had the right flavors of savory and saltiness. The wood fired pizza reminded... More

This is a full bar with a good beer selection and a sizeable dining room. Typical bar food; appetizers and burgers. A good selection of other entrees. I always recommend chicken riggies to anyone visiting the Utica area; this is a local dish, and Babe's does it well. Convenient location to highway.

On our way to Niagara, my family and I decided to stop by Babe's Macaroni Grill & Bar. The atmosphere was a bit all over the place with a not so solid theme, and it was a bit boisterous, as the guide book suggested. But the food was good quality and We really enjoyed the service. I had the Deluxe... More

We stopped by this place after a softball game at the urging of our kids The place was nice, the menu did have a lot of things to choose from...their wine list - MARGINAL at best. I guess it is more of a beer joint. No worries - they had Stella! The kids got wraps which they said were good,... More

The restaurant was convenient to our hotel and we didn't feel like travelling any further. The menu was ok, prices reasonable, and service was good.

Stopped to grab a quick bite to eat on a Saturday afternoon after visiting the zoo. The restaurant has cool decor and many tables to accommodate a wide range of different number of guest. We had a meatball sub, chicken parm sandwich and a kids pizza. The sub and sandwich were pretty good but do not come with any sides.... More

Been to Babe's numerous times. Usually get wings or burgers along with a couple of beers. Service is good and the prices are reasonable. Bar area has plenty of TV's if you're a sports fan. Dining area is nice plenty of room not on top of everyone. Summertime you can go outside for cans and clams.
