My family and I have been coming to this restaurant for many years because it is convenient for us and reasonably priced. The bar area has numerous TV's for a sports bar atmosphere. They also have an outdoor patio which is nice in the spring/summer. (Cans and clams in the summer-there are only 10 clams in an order-weird)The dining area... More

While the food is so-so, the professionalism of the owner/staff is astounding. Arguments in the back can be heard in the dining/bar areas. Unfortunately I cannot bring myself to ever go here again. Sad.

But I needed a quick bite for lunch with a coworker. We were seated pretty quickly, but it was a little slow. The table we were seated at had not been wiped off (greasy and crumbs), nor was it at any point we were there. There were some healthier options. I had a turkey club wrap and they were will... More

Went there twice and being from the south, I was amazed at the friendliness of the staff and for NY, the food was authentic Itallian with American touch. The prices were great and beer was good I think the word is "figgies", anyway, it was great and basically pasta in a vodka sauce that complemented my steak. Their sandwich/burgers were... More

This restaurant was very close to the highway, to a number of nearby hotels, very clean, bright and cheerful. Pizza was an excellent thin crust and delicious. Service very good. Reasonable prices.

Visited this place with a few friends for lunch. The staff was at the front door but wasn't really friendly. 🤔The food was mediocre at best. Our friends paid for our food. We wouldn't come back on our own.😕

Always a nice place to eat. Great happy Hour snacks and venue. Summertime on outside deck with specials is gun. Menu is varied and offers fine choice of nicely priced meals.

We are regular customers of Babe's since we live a couple miles away and usually get a pretty decent meal. However, I would not recommend the eggplant parmesan. When it was brought to the table it looked like an experiment. There was a breaded circle with a little bit of eggplant in it, topped with a small amount of sauce... More

Are son is looking to attend Utica College in the fall. He came for an overnight visit and we stayed down the street at the Hampton Inn. Coaches suggested we try out Babe's for dinner.
