This was our third visit to Babe’s. We keep going back. The menu is extensive and makes it hard to choose. Their pasta is wonderful and plentiful. The burgers are outstanding. They serve the local beers and soda...yummy. Cozy atmosphere and friendly staff.

I have gone to this restaurant frequently over the years. I noticed a decrease in food quality and quantity the last time I was there. Won't be going back for a while.
