Betty's is located in an historic building in the colorful Allentown neighborhood in Buffalo. A large part of its ambience is created by exhibits of the work of local artists, which change every two months.Our full service bar features New York State distilled spirits, an interesting and well-rounded wine and beer list and special seasonal cocktails. While famous for its Sunday brunch, Betty's is also a popular place for dinner for pre-theatre and pre-symphony patrons, for business breakfasts and lunches and for special family occasions. Our bar is open until midnight or later Thursay through Saturday and is the perfect place for those looking for a mature, low-key bar scene.

Advertises vegetarian but so much more.

Betty's seems to push their vegetarian in their ads, but once there, we found many meat dishes. The beef stew was delightful. Love the bar area and they make great cocktails.

I had lunch here with my wife and another couple on the second day of a weekend visit to Buffalo, a beautiful sunny May day. The restaurant was very busy with a short line-up to be seated so we opted to sit at the bar. Good choice. The bartender loved to chat as did the diners seated beside me and... More

Had lunch here on my way to the airport. There was a line at the door, but the manager kindly seated my friend and me at the bar and made sure that we were served. Excellent sandwich and average-to-very-good salad. From my observations at the bar and from conversations with persons behind the bar, I would not say that this... More

Celebrating a birthday w a vegan can be a challenge! Betty's has vegan food on their delicious menu which is why we chose Betty's. We arrived early on sunny Sunday for Brunch-and we were glad we arrived early. Parking can be an issue-and when we left, there were at least 20 people waiting outside for a table inside!

The atmosphere, the food, the staff, the building itself - all great! Unique breakfast/brunch choices, unlike most breakfast restaurants. It's a busy place, so be prepared to have a bit of a wait, but it's worth it! The

This restaurant is bigger than it looks. didn't have to wait as our guests were all there. interesting menu items, great food. The back of the menu lists all the businesses that at one time or another ran out of this building. It was interesting to see the differences in the venues.

In 30 years of dining out, I have never had the misfortune of dining at an establishment with such an obnoxious staff. I wouldn't send my worst enemy to Betty's.... You deserve better!

My husband and I cannot eat gluten, so we usually have very little choice in restaurants. But at Betty's, there are so many gluten-free meals that it's hard to decide which to have. Quite frankly, I wanted all of them! We started with a spectacular baked brie served with roasted garlic cloves, balsamic, apple slices, a deliciously spicy apple chutney... More
