“Great Food, Fantastic Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Fantastic food!! I had the steak, but I tasted my brother-in-law's Chicken Riggies, and I was upset that I didn't order them for myself!!!

The restaurant is very clean and the service was excellent!! We were served delicious, warm bread with a herb butter.

A great place to go for Italian Food!!

“Good food, good service, decent prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We ate at Babe's in August of this year while we were in town on business. The food was good (we both had pasta dishes), the service was cheerful and quick, and the price was in line with other restaurants in the area. Not a spectacularly-good place but just fine for an occasional meal.

“Good service, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

If you're coming off the Thruway and want something other than a reheated burger, Babe's is a decent place to have an inexpensive lunch. The food is average -- salads are OK, as are the burgers. But its not cuisine. Very quick and attentive service the several times I've been there. Not that memorable but it's a quick lunch that's better than the adjacent fast food.

“Good service, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

We went @ 4:30 for dinner so the place was close to empty. It is VERY big. The menu looked good, but the food was nothing special. My daughter ordered a grilled cheese. They used leftover bread to make it. The top and bottom were 2 different breads; actually they were buns that were inverted so you couldn't tell they were sandwich buns at first. My son said his dinner was fine, but you could tell it wasn't anything made from scratch. The prices were fair and the waitress was nice which made up for the meal being just so-so.
