I always review out of town places while I'm away. I never think to review places in my area. I came across the mixed reviews for Babe's. I frequent Babe's often. Babe's has a large menu. Based on that, it's definitely the type of place that I like to ask what the server recommends. A good server will always make... More

This restaurant was near my hotel so I thought that I would give it a look-see. I ordered the French onion soup and spaghetti and meat balls. The French Onion soup was standard fare and nothing really jumped out and had me saying "WOW". I was disappointed in the Spaghetti and Meatballs however. With all the Italian restaurants in the...

I can't say it's my favorite, but it is for lots of people. Their riggies are always good. I like their steak sandwich. Good place to take an out of town visitor for Utica food-- chicken riggies and Utica greens. Reliable food.

We're new to the area and stopped here for lunch one afternoon. It's in a nice building with a pretty pleasant atmosphere, and all the staff were very friendly and accomodating. That's about it. We started with a toasted ravioli appetizer- my husband and I each ate one. And I don't think we've ever not finished toasted ravioli. The ones... More

I've mainly visited Babes for happy hour and it can get very crowded. Have probably tried every appetizer on the menu and wasn't disappointed with any of them.

Had a group of 8 of us with kids. The place has a nice atmosphere and is big. The menu selection also has everything you may want. The food though wasn't that great. We just ordered simple sandwiches and burgers. A BLT came out with burnt bacon and was pretty sloppy. The burgers came on rolls that are not your... More

Turn at the light to go to the back parking lot. Lots of parking back there. The place is divided into a sports bar in the front and a large restaurant in the back. The sports bar has a medium sized bar to sit at, booths and tables around the room. Lots of TVs for your viewing. Food service is... More

Just what you'ld expect. Loud music, with a bar side and a dining room side - TV's all over the former. Good creditable filling food, but nothing special. The beef in the chili was shredded rather than ground and was thick and "stick to your ribs." The French Onion Soup had the right ratios of liquid, crouton, cheese, and onion,... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch on the way to an appointment. Service was quick and efficient. The food was served promptly. Everything was acceptable. Nothing was so good you would want to go back to get it again, but also not so bad that you wouldn't eat it again. Basically, average. It was clean and we were in... More
