Good variety of items

As a vegetarian I was able to find several selections. I ended up with pasta & enjoyed it very much. Service was good. My friend had a take out order for her daughter which was spaghetti with shrimp. At home she found there was just ONE shrimp.

My family has been going to Babe's for over 15 years and a lot has gone downhill. The food is extremely greasy and always burned, the prices aren't cheap, and the place is not kept clean. The drinks are very watered down so don't even bother going to the bar.

So you know that old saying about a restaurants kitchen is only as clean as the bathrooms..... Well if that is true, then I am never eating here again! The ladies room here is one of the filthiest bathrooms I have ever seen! It looks like it has never been properly cleaned, it is absolutely disgusting and there is no... More

Atmosphere is nice, better in summer when outside bar area is open. Wait staff is good and efficient. Great riggies, hamburgers, and sandwiches. Pizza is tasty. Prefer the bar area over the restaurant area. One of the nicer area sports bars.

Atmosphere is cute and kitschy. Server was prompt and attentive. I order a martini dry but apparently bartender doesn't understand what that means because it wasn't dry and I think the vodka was watered down. Order calamari which was not fresh but frozen, but edible until it was cooled and then it was pasty and like rubber bands. I ordered... More

I visited on a Sunday mainly because my preferred places nearby were all closed at 6:30pm. I ordered a drink and it was served promptly, but on a coaster that looked like it had been run over in the parking lot. That shook my confidence a bit. They have a large menu. I asked for a recommendation after reading mixed... More

I was stunned at how good this place was, particularly given it was a Sunday evening around 7pm, and we were within a mile of the thruway exit for Utica,

Even with unexpected large parties after a dance competition the service was fantastic. The food outstanding, soups were delicious hot and all fresh ingredients. If we had time to go back and get chicken righties we would have. Loved them!

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
