Babes was a very positive experience. Lots to eat on the menu, appropriate for families, college kids, date nite. Kind of reminded me of sport bar but it isn't. Salads, Sandwiches Burgers and more.

Babe's has a bit of everything on the menu. We did not have to wait to be seated on a week night. It's a friendly, neighborhood place. The staff was attentive. We felt that the food was quite acceptable but average.

We picked Babe's for dinner since it was near our hotel. I ordered one of their house specialties, Babe's chicken riggies. The pasta and accompaniments were ok. The chicken was tough. My wife and I both had clam chowder which was excellent. We both said we should have just had chowder and a salad. Our waitress seemed to be in... More

We were looking for someplace to eat, and our GPS either took us to places that were closed or somewhere we were not willing to get out of the car! We went back to Babe's, which was pretty close to the off ramp of the interstate. Husband had Chicken Parmigiana, which was a large serving and very good. Chicken was... More

Presentation marginal....only worse was Delmonicos. BUT....flavor very good. Nice amount of peperoncinis, good Italian notes. Slightly on the dry side on texture. But the escarole was very long cut, which was unique on this trip. You had to use the bread knife to get it down to size. Neat. It needed salt...but I was veryhappy with my choice after addition...

My wife and I stopped in for dinner and were pleased. The main choices on the menu are Italian meals. My wife got a salad and soup. Their version of Italian wedding soup was so good, she got a 2nd bowl. I ordered a chicken riggles dinner which came out piping hot. My salad was good with the house dressing... More

This place has a nice bar, outside sitting area, it's great for family, friends and business meetings. Food is good, staff is friendly, big parking. Pricing is average (by that I mean affordable and reasonable). This location is definitely one of my top 5 in Utica. I highly recommend sitting outside, although the road is near by, you hardly notice... More
