The food was average; the service was average; the hostess was horrible. She walked right past me and my husband who were waiting to be seated, so that she could attend to three young men who had just walked in the door.

Service was great! Beer on tap was ok. Food was fantastic! On one side there was a typical sports bar but the other side was a nice family restaurant. The kids were happy, daddy was happy and that makes mommy happy!

Babe's is a burger joint/sports bar in North Utica that is walking distance to the train station, if you ever find yourself waiting on a late train. This is very casual, family friendly, but also rowdy sports fan friendly. The food is not fancy but it's Americana, burgers and fries, sandwiches and wraps and pasta dishes. There are at least...

Often stop here when travelling back westward to home (Syracuse area)... Basic "bar and grill" food with good pastas... nothing fancy. But all dishes are well prepared, very tasty, and portions are generous without being overwhelming. The service is prompt and courteous, and the prices are very reasonable. Really nothing to complain about... Good, "solid" place... You'll get your money's... More

Fun decor with lots of variety, excellent food with huge portions. Nice homemade taste and swift service - had my beverage refilled before it being empty. Liked the attentive service and food - the braided bread was piping hot, onion rings were huge, and main course perfect. So glad we found you. Great for student checking out colleges and casual...

This is our 2nd year of dining at Babe's. We go on Saturday for the Boilermaker free pasta and then come back on Sunday after the race. Food is great, service is wonderful. Great value. We will definitely keep coming back each year

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.
