“Catch All Out Of Town Games Here”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

I need to keep up with the Blackhawks while on the road, and really hate to put $$$ into the chains such as B-Dubs. Fortunately, I have found Babe's. After my second visit, the bartender remembered me and that I like to sample the Pale Ale selections.

Foodwise, the bar appetizers are reasonable (e.g., pepperoni or sausage flatbread is $3); but it is bar food.

However, the dinner menu offers some non-traditional bar-food (e.g., Tilapia, grilled Tuna and Beef Stroganoff)

The Caesar salad is always crisp and includes freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

I highly recommend the codfish dinner - It is a generous portion of cod.

The music is played at a respectable level which allows conversation across the table without the need to shout to be heard.

“not the owner, The Babe”
Reviewed 8 November 2012

In correction to my previous review.

The ladies that serve there are a tribute to their gender. Very pleasant, competent, and easy on the eyes.

Agree with other reviewer, restaurant food at sports bar.

“New menu”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Appears to be a new menu at Babe's. Baja fish tacos were awesome! Had the tilapia, all ingredients were fresh and delicious. Seafood chowder was a tomato based soup and possibly the worst soup I've ever had. The curly fries are as good as before. Babe's is a sports bar with restaurant quality food. There is a private banquet room you can reserve as well for gatherings.

“Babe's is the name of the owner +”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Been to Babe's now a couple of times for lunch. Beside the good food quality and value, the pleasant personality of servers has been consistent. A smile can be the difference between a server and a babe!

“Good food in a welcoming environment”
Reviewed 9 November 2011

A place you can take the kids but still enjoy adult company. A sports bar/restaurant with consistently good food. Their chef often puts together some soups out of "whats left" that are really good. I particularly like their black and blue burger and their baked cod at their Friday night fish fry.
