Ive been to Babes a few times, mostly 2014 though. It was always decent. What a change. The place looks dirty and unkempt and the lighting is harsh. Ordered the salmon which was full of tiny bones and not fresh at all. It was portion frozen type that was dried out and had zero taste. It came with frozen mixed... More

Wide selection of beers on tap. Cheerful atmosphere with excellent service. Hot bread basket! Shrimp scampi was plentiful but underseasoned; apple crisp mediocre.

It is a great place for quick lunch especially if you are in north utica. The food is good and prices are resealable. Close to the thrway exit.

Noodles were under cooked and drained poorly so it diluted the sauce. The steak was supposed to be medium but was well done and dry. The sauce tasted like it came out of a jar. Not very clean. Avoid this place!

I make it a point in my business travel plans to stop in Utica when i can and have dinner at Babes. The food is always excellent and for the last 10 years I have never had a bad meal. The beer is cold and the beer tenders are friendly and HOT. A must stop when in Utica.

Great food! Large menu, the pasta is amazing. Good atmosphere and lots of seating so it is a good place to go with big parties. Reasonably priced.

Once a year I drive from Toronto to Albany with an overnite stop in Utica. I always have dinner at Babe's. It is far better value than the steak house across the street. This is a sports bar with an extended menu much of which is Italian food. The portions are large; the prices are fair and the service is... More

We stopped in Utica, NY to see the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. While staying at the Fairfield Inn & Suites, we ate at Babe's. The food was delicious and the staff were wonderful.! Excellent overall experience! We would eat there again. Bruce B.

We love to go to Babes for both family outings, as well as an outing with friends. Jeff, a manager, is a great guy and always checking on everyone to make sure things are running smoothly. The staff are always friendly. Food selections are available in a wide variety of choices from lighter fare to heavier meals. Portion sizes are... More
