Average bar food

This place has great bar food. And really good bloody marys. This place is really good for a group of people celebrating anything.

A Friday night isn't complete without a stop at Betty Jo's. The staff is friendly and attentive and the free popcorn is the best in town.

Great for families and good for college students (and adults) looking for a "tamer" night experience, Betty Jo's is spacious with many, many booths and a very large bar for hassle-free drink ordering and socializing. Because of its "pubbish" interior many college students will eschew Betty Jo's for the "divey-er" downtown alternatives, leaving Betty Jo's the safer, saner and more... More

They have amazing food, and popcorn to tide you over. My favorite dish is the pizza fries. They also have an amazing selection of beer, and you can pick randomly too. Great bloody mary's, as well. Lot's of people go there to watch the game, hang with friends, go on dates, and/or bring their family. It's great, love Betty Jo's!

My kids got pizza and loved it. I got the chicken dumpling soup, and asked for a second bowl. The service was very good, and friendly. The place was clean, and not noisy. I would go there again.

Been coming here a few years now. Tonight the food was bad. The coleslaw was not mixed correctly, waffle fries were almost burnt and ordered a drink and received something completely different. Management/owner needs to step up and work here and not just run it from the sidelines. Very disappointed, this not the first time we have had problems with... More

From the looks of the website it seemed like it would have good food and good service. WRONG! server was, well less than sober and less than informative. I asked several questions which he had no answers to and didn't bother to find out. The burger while "hand pattied" had zero flavor. The mac and cheese (boxed) was dry and... More

Stopped in Winona for lunch on our annual eagle trip around Lake Pepin. Hubby had the Warrior and I had the patty melt--both were very tasty. Our waitress was cheerful and efficient. We will definitely stop back here again.

Went to Betty's for the quaint decor & old historical downtown building. I had the fish (cod) sandwich that looked like it came out of a box in the freezer section of HyVee. The bun was twice the size of the cod piece & the coleslaw was good but runny. My husband had the soup & sandwich. Chilli was good,... More

Went for supper,place came highly recommended from friends. They were marginally busy but got seated immediately. The service is horrible, it took forever to get our drinks, which were warm by the time we received them. We waited for over an hour and a half for our food, but left before it came out. Which is to bad, since I... More
