While waiting for McDonalds to start serving their whole menu we had to stop at the bank and since we had a some time on our hands we thought we would head over to Babe's to get a beer. The bartender was very friendly and served us right away. When we asked her about a Moscow Mule she explained what... More

The staff present was really bad and rude, I'll never ever recommend anybody to go there, when the staff isnt warm enough, I just doubt the food. Moreover, had friends traveling from different country and they were not allowed inside as these guys did not even recognize an international license.

We stopped by Babe's for the first time and sat on the patio. The patio is on the street and got pretty noisy but it was nice to be outside. They could perk up the outside dining area with a few plants or lights or something. It is quite plain - probably because it would need to be hosed down... More

Went there for some drinks with friends, they had live music and a small cover fee which i don't mind. But a $7 crown and coke with mostly coke.... Seems a bit outrageous for a small town outta the city, unless they upped it for the live band.

Babe's is in the old part of Lakeville. In the summer it has a outdoor dining/bar scene. Its a large place and can hold a lot of people outdoors and indoors. Weekends they have loud live music. They have awesome happy hour specials. The staff is friendly. There are a lot of regulars that come here. Stick to the basics-... More

We've been going to Babe's for over 17 years. Have never had a bad meal or poor service! The wait staff is friendly, fast and helpful! There are many recommendations from their menu - the ribs are great, any burger, margarita salad, club sandwich, french dip - it's all good. Wednesday nights are busy with all-you-can-eat ribs and bingo but... More

Babe's is the place where everyone goes and everyone knows your name. Been around almost as long as Lakeville and it's the place where you come back to, especially if you've been gone for awhile. Great place to meet friends for drinks, apps, and more. Music on a regular basis. Open mic to well-known local bands. Food is bar-brand, but... More

Wanted a quick bite to eat after shopping downtown. Standard food fare that you would expect at a sports bar.
