Love going to the River and this is my favorite restaurant there. The decor is great inside and the patio is awesome. The service is great and the portions large. There is so much to do at the River both before and after your meal so you can make an afternoon visit.

In an area that closes early, many terrific eating places are not available when you arrive on a late flight. The barbecue is very good and large, but pricy. The brisket sandwich is well priced and very good. Sides are well thought out and very good. All in all, the place is well worth a visit and a meal. The... More

Whenever I am in the mood for good barbecue I come to Babes. My favorite is their thinly sliced brisket sandwich. They are also known for their craft beers which change frequently however my favorite is their award winning Honey Blonde Ale. Also they will provide a side order of their house made spicy pickles at no additional charge -... More

Nice atmosphere and great service. It was our first time at Babe's and the waiter was very helpful with assisting us with the portion sizes. The barbecue was great. I recommend the rib sampler. It's a good way to try all the types of ribs at a reasonable price. Don't forget the baked beans and coleslaw to complete the meal.

Have been going to Babe's for quite a few years and have never been disappointed. Went again this year and everyone had something different and everyone loved their meals. Service is wonderful.

We have eaten here several times in the past and really enjoyed Babe's. Unfortunately on our last visit we were very disappointed. Service was marginal and we were very disappointed with our meal. I had a 1/2 rack of ribs and my wife had a salad. We were both disappointed. Small servings and not all that tasty. We love the... More

The service was a bit brusque but the food was great. American classic barbeque. Had the pulled pork salad with dressing on the side. The pork was tender with an excellent barbeque sauce. Also enjoyed their award winning beers. Would go again.

OMG fall off the bone ribs. Great location near the river. Rustic atmosphere in a pleasant restaurant. Quick service at a fairly busy spot. Inside or outside seating available.

Thank Sharf793
