Utica Greens? A local speciality

We like taverns with good food and Babe's, not far off the highway and near our hotel, seemed like a good choice. We ate at the bar and enjoyed a great conversation with bartender Michelle about the area and what the heck were Utica Greens? Turns out they are a local dish made from sauteed... read more

We ordered the boneless ribs and the chicken riggies. Ribs were tender and very well seasoned BBQ. Chicken riggies was garlicky chicken strips with rigatoni, mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes and sauce. It was delicious. As was the homemade Italian wedding soup that came with the meal. Some of the best I've had. Meals also come with warm fresh bread and yummy... More

I really enjoyed this place. It is very large and can seat many. It has a fun casual atmosphere with lots of airplanes and other old stuff hanging from the ceiling. Food was very good and reasonably priced. They make good local favorite called "Chicken Riggies" Service was good and waitress was very nice. Plenty of parking.

Babe has a lovely selection of food and the wait staff has always been very nice and accommodating. I've been going there on and off for years with my girlfriends. It is a nice respite

I don't know why Babe's isn't rated higher on Trip Advisor. We stopped here for dinner on our way to Vermont and were pleasantly surprised. All of our food was very good. Service was good too. Indoor/outdoor seating available. Just a short walk across the street from the Holiday Inn Express. 👍👍

After an eventful evening of Saranac Thursday and volleyball at 12 North - it occurred to us we were HUNGRY! A quick late night snack at Babes provided us with a great late night menu that was reasonable and tasty! I would definitely have a pizza - super thin crust and just the right size!

Sports bar theme. The service was good, but not excellent. Can't say as it was anything special, but the lasagna was very good.

This is easily one of the better restaurants in the area. The service is quick and friendly, and the food is great! It's a good place to bring your family or friends for a casual meal, and the menu has much more variety than an Applebees or similar restaurant. I'll be back!
