When i come thru Columbia, i usually like to get steak from Betty's to go. Usually a great experience, until recently. I reached my destination an my steak was tough and BURNT, so i called in. Thinking no big deal, im a loyal customer and i just want a good steak not the money. The lady whom i spoke to... More

Betty's has a great rib eye and fantastic burgers. The best for this area. Fair price for both.They also have a few tables with a nice view of the Duck River. Decor needs a bit of help though, which leans toward cool NASCAR pieces. Service is a tad slow, but they make up for the pace with their attentiveness. Overall,... More

Food here is always good. Service is about average. The time spent waiting on food is easy longer than expected, and the pricing has also increased. This is average for the cost and time, but other options are available.

We went in April for the first time. Figured we'd try it since Betty's has been voted "Best Steak" in the Best of Columbia magazine. It was a great steak. Not a fancy restaurant which sometimes is a good thing. Just good food.

We have dined at Bettys parkway for a long time. The food is always good, the steaks are very good and cooked just right The staff is pleasant but when the restaurant is crowded they tend to get a little behind. The restaurant can get crowded, but overall the dinning experience is very good. I like to sit overlooking the... More

This place is right on the Duck river, over looking with great view, if you could see through the filthy windows, the bar/dining area is so filthy, makes you wonder what the kitchen looks like. 4 times we gave it a chance, 2 of 4 times there was a double charge on our card for lunch. Staff is friendly, wish... More

We went about 2 weeks ago to Betty's the service was HORRIBLE! We sat there for almost an hour and a half before we received our food. When we got our food it wasn't anything to brag about. Our waitress was absolutely terrible we all sat there multiple times with nothing to drink. We also bought the groupons off of... More

Overlooking the scenic Duck River, this NASCAR themed eatery is serving up very good food. Steaks are their specialty, but lots of other options are offered. I opted for a grilled pork chop with a salad and baked potato, all very good. Service is good as are the prices. Ask to be seated in the room with the river view.

Was told that they had the best burgers in town...and that's probably true. I had the 8oz Bacon cheeseburger; simple and basic but so flavorful and tasty. The atmosphere is dive/sports bar-like, but you're not going here dressed up (or at least I hope not). The back room has a nice view of the river. Can't speak to the rest... More

We were not impressed at all! We drove from Nashville to eat here after hearing about it. Not worth the drive, just nothing special. Steaks were not good, quality not there! Would not make the trip again. Should have known when there is an upcharge for "REAL" bacon bits, not a good sign in my opinion!! But they do offer... More
