a disappointment

Had been a few years since I had been in, but remembered it fondly. The service was fine --- though a WE ONLY TAKE CASH as we were seated was a bit odd. The fish was frozen --- not fresh. The burger was not very good and the fries were undercooked. All in all --- a "one and done".

Food/service were good as were the meals. We had a BLT, pastrami, and bacon cheeseburger. The portions were big enough where we all only ate half of our sandwiches. Potato salad was homemade and very good.

Service is lickity split. Prices are good for what you get. No real favorites in the menu but anything we have had there for breakfast was good across the board. Small front parking, more in back /side. Very cool little jukeboxes on booths. Today, I had the corned beef hash w/2 eggs and homefries. The texas sized toast was excellent... More

I promise, if I lived close enough I'd drive to Betsy's EVERY day to get a corned beef hash sandwich! The food was AWESOME, service was friendly and quick!

Betsy's is always crowded with a line down the block so that speaks for itself While it serves a variety of food, breakfast items are the most popular. They have fast service, friendly waiters and are very accommodating. They take no reservations but do take credit cards. Fun place to go-a real diner in its finest.

Cash only at Betsy's...but that's a small inconvenience for a real diner with really good diner food. We had cream if vegetable chicken soup, a turkey sandwich and a burger. All were fresh and prepared as ordered. The service was fine. The blueberry pie was out of this world good. I was just passing though the area and not staying... More

Long list of NOs on their menu - which puts a damper on the fun vibe. They seem to be cranky. Cash only. We had pancakes for breakfast and they were pretty good. Coffee was decent.

Actually received my blue plate special on a blue plate! Friendly service, cash only (no credit cards!), and the usual diner menu are all available here. Best to go for breakfast or lunch unless you know what time they're open for dinner that day as they often close up early.

Fantastic brunch in a great diner. we were visiting from England and loved this place so much we ate here twice. It's not fancy food but what they do they do well. Good value, honest food without frills. Would be perfect for a family wanting to fill up the kids before a day out. One day I had a delicious... More

, Stopped in for a late breakfast on our way to Hyannis. Very interesting decor with booths, old kitchen tables and chairs all neatly covered and cared for. There's a juke box in the back that plays great old music. The only draw back, if any was that they only take cash. They let us know up front. The menu... More
