My husband and I take all of our out of town guests here. Everyone loves the experience. It's not the kind of place you go to expecting all the fancy service, it's fun and easy. The food is always good, my favorite is the smoked chicken. The staff is always friendly. If something isn't right, you just have to speak up! As for the noise, it's part of the charm, especially when they do the hokey pokey. Our 11 month old is never happier than when we're at Babes or as my sister in Colorado says, mmmmmBabes.
