Eat outside on a beautiful day

Like a fifties diner. Wide variety menu. Everyone in my family ordered different things and we were all pleased. Long line to get in at rush hour but it moved quickly (went faster if you sat at the counter). Super nice waitress. Downtown Aiken (albeit on the far Northern end).

They have a daily luncheon special and great hot soups. Of course, there's always great cakes and ice cream. you can sit at the counter stools and have an ice cream soda or shake. Kids, young and old, will love it. Prefer a salad or sandwich? They're on the menu. Something for everyone. Go early as it fills fast. Outdoor... More

Great place for lunch. Burgers, fries, salads, etc. "Happy Days" atmosphere with memories of the "50's". Has an old fashioned soda fountain, so you can get authentic ice cream sodas, malts & shakes. Yummy!

This is a restaurant in downtown Aiken that was redone in a retro fifties feel. Very nice. Always busy. I had a chicken salad that was very good -- full of chicken and quite good. My kids each had a homemade shake. One was chocolate, the other strawberry. They were good as of course I tasted them. However the price... More

Lunch time is very crowded - with good reason. Varied menu and everything we tried was excellent. Good value and good service despite how busy it was. We'll definitely go back again - maybe for supper next time. Outdoor seating available, too.

Took some friends from out of town there for lunch. Lovely day dictated we eat outside.. It was great and the sandwiches and soup of the day were both very tasty. Nothing exotic.

Good value, great food, smiling servers - Betsy's never fails to deliver! Have never had a bad meal and, if you have room, the desserts are over-the-top delicious!

We were looking for a casual place to dine and found it at Betsy's. Enjoyed a burger and turkey rueben and then polished off a hunky monkey chocolate sundae. Super yum! Prices reasonable for portions. Clean, friendly and efficient service. We would eat there again.

Just a wonderful experience, for both adults and kids. Good food, well prepared, served quickly without fanfare, by pleasant waitstaff, from the "corner that they work". Enjoy!
