We went to Babes about a year ago. The food wasn't very good and the portions were small. My girlfriend ordered bacon and eggs, and she didn't even get toast with it. That cost extra.?? It's hard to screw up eggs, but they did. I had a sandwich that was passable, but the greens I ordered with it were the worst I've ever had. When the waitress asked how we liked the food, I nicely told her that we really didn't care for it. shortly after that, I noticed the cook giving me dirty looks from the kitchen. We went back recently to give them another chance, but our meals were worse than the first time we went. We thanked the waitress, left her a nice tip, and left our food on the table. From the prices of even the basic, simple foods on the menu, I expected much more from Babes, and I'm really surprised at the attitude of the cook. I hope he isn't the owner, because the way he acts toward his customers is about as unprofessional as it gets, in my opinion. The staff are very friendly and helpful, but with the combination of the lousy food, and the unprofessional attitude of the cook, we've made our last trip to Babes. Mcdonald's food is better, and It's priced right too.

We were driving through and Goggled a place for late lunch/early dinner. We travel alot and dine out frequently. Our experience at Babes was in the top 5% of restraunts we've been to. The facility was clean & comfortable, including restrooms. Decor was great. A diverse menu with several dishes you can't get just anywhere. All 3 of our meals were superbly delicious! I made "changes" to a menu item and was given a meal better than I described. The wait-staff very friendly and attentive and the total bill with mixed drinks was $20 less than we thought it was gonna be. Only negative was that the service was a little TOO fast. We liked "Babe's" so much that we would have enjoyed our experience to be a touch slower. Final score = 98/100.

My family and I went there on a Friday night in May, 2014. We will never go back there again. There was apparently some problem with their computer, but after we were seated and given menus, no one approached us for 20-25 minutes, not even to tell us that. And, although the food was heralded by the one who referred us there, we thought that it was awful! First of all, no one who truly appreciates Italian fare should order that kind of food at this place. I had the Chicken Parmagiana, and it was so terrible, I wanted to turn it back to them and order something safe, like milk! One of my daughters tried the Cleveland Chili Pasta, which I tasted, and it wasn't very good. My son, though, enjoyed his big hamburger, possibly called a Cowboy burger. My wife ordered a steak, which wasn't prepared well and which didn't taste like a quality product. The fries were very good, but the calamari was a disaster. The non-alcoholic drinks were good. I guess that if you expect to eat quality food, you don't go to a place called a "Macaroni Grille." Don't go there. This cannot be chalked up to a bad night. It's bad food and bad service. Go across the street to Delmonico's, or even Wendy's. But don't go to Babe's. Unless you want to try the macaroni. But don't expect much: you're probably better off making Kraft.

Good spot for some quick food, although there are the occasional issues with timeliness and speed. Their bread is made fresh daily and is usually served hot.
