Casual Dinning

We wanted some casual dinning near our hotel and this was just the right place. We were a party of three and we each enjoyed our meals. We would eat here again.

I grew up in Utica and always went to Babe's as a kid. Whenever I am back in the area I stop in and it is still great. Besides the nostalgic feelings, the service was great. Our waitress was really friendly but I cannot remember her name. The manager came over to make sure everything came out ok (which it... More

The menu features some Utica specialties including chicken riggies and Utica greens as well as lunch and casual dining standards--salads, burgers, pasta, etc. The service is usually good and fast without being hurried. Whether you're taking a lunch break and eager to get back to work or onto the thruway or you want to spend a leisurely evening hanging out... More

Eat here several times a month. Historically, going back real far, has its roots to the owner of Delmonico's. Original owner was perhaps his right hand man. Partner now does it justice. This inspired the excellent food, good value, and superb service, you'll find at Delmonico's, Carmella's, and Babe's. Do it right or don't do it at all

Stopped here while visiting Utica for the AHL All Star Game. Décor inside is quirky, which adds to the great feel you get once you sit down and start looking over the menu. Lots of choices, and none of them are bad. I had the Buffalo Shrimp Pasta, and would highly highly recommend this!!!

The meal started out with a forgetful waitress...the restaurant wasn't that busy & she couldn't even bring over the correct drinks. Then after we ordered, she forgot to bring the soup. The dinner itself was tasteless...I believe after this experience that I will not be coming back anytime soon.

Great atmosphere & the staff is very friendly. Large selection of items on their menu & large selection of drinks as well. I've had baby back ribs many places, but these were the BEST ever!!! If you're in the area, give them a try!!!!
