We just happened upon this place and it was great. We got there about 1:15 and the place was packed, but we waited less than 5 minutes for a table. It looks like an old fashioned diner...Formica topped tables and a lunch counter in the rear. The menu was pretty extensive: sandwiches, burgers, salads, soups and platters. I had the... More

Good food, good selection, good service, good desserts. May be crowded at lunch. Good large old fashioned milkshakes.

They are set up like an old time dinner. The milkshakes are awesome along with their home made pimento cheese. I took my niece and nephew after school one day and they keep asking when am I going to take them back

Go to Betsy's On The Corner for great luncheon dishes as well as old-fashioned soda fountain specialties such as sundaes, Ice cream sodas, and thick milkshakes. Had a great Reuben there recently along with an order of French-fried Onion Rings that were done perfectly.. The place is a bit noisy, but that's because its such a popular luncheon spot in... More

Had the pimento cheese burger with a slice of fried green tomato on it. Very good burger with good quality beef. My wife had the chicken fingers with delicious home made sweet potato fries. She enjoyed her dish as well.

The food at Betsy's On the Corner is very good. I've tried many entrees and they all have exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is that it is too noisy! All the surfaces in the restaurant are hard, so the noise tends to bounce around a good bit. It is VERY difficult to carry on a conversation in Betsy's, and... More

Ate at Betsy's today. The Blue Plate special was delicious. Our server was great--friendly and attentive. Betsy also chatted with us. We splurged and had dessert. I always have the lemon curd cake but my husband tried the pumpkin pie which happened to have been made by our server. He said it was different and the best pumpkin pie he's... More

Great sandwich/salad restaurant. Diner type place and always crowded during lunch. Always have had very good food there and the ice cream is delicious! Service has always been good.

Exactly what you want and expect from a diner, from the leather banquettes and Formica tables to the awesome shakes and fries that smell like fries should. Brilliant.

Honestly, I gave this place as many chances as I could. I just don't get it. The food is mediocre , service mediocre, atmosphere is the closest thing to being less than mediocre but even that comes off as slightly cartoony. Ice cream is good, but I truly do not understand why people continue to patronize this place. The prices... More
