This was a great. The people I were with said it was one of the best fish fries they have had in a long time. We had a great waitress. The atmosphere was nice and lively but still family friendly.

We stopped here after attending a show at the Stanley. We were staying across the street, so we stopped in for a late dinner. It was very dim, I'm sure to hide the filth. We ordered an appetizer, a beer and soda. The beer was warm, and tasted like it had been sitting around for years. The appetizer was cold.... More

Babe's is a great hangout. I stayed at the hotel across the street and was happy to know they were there. The food and drinks are good, the service is great. I was pleasantly surprised to see how many regulars they have and how long they've been regulars. It speaks a lot of the place. I also like that the... More

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.

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.
