Description: 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.

One of the most difficult challenges I face as a vegetarian is finding decent restaurants that offer something interesting to eat. I found Betty's on Trip Advisor, and based on the other reviews, gave it a shot. Am I glad I did - you betcha! Not only did my husband and I have probably the best server ever - I... More

Good, healthy eating. All of that health advice regarding healthy eating is being put to use here. The food is as good as the menu looks, and the menu pulls you right in. A nice size place, that looks large from the street. The ceilings are high and the interior colors appealing. We arrived at 6 pm on a Saturday... More

Betty's is an eclectic place in an 19th century building with a rich and interesting history as a location that housed many businesses. The brunch is excellent; I had the breakfast burrito, which was made with fresh ingredients and was very tasty. The prices are reasonable and the service was friendly and efficient. I'm not a big fan of waiting... More

Betty's offers a wide variety of dishes with locally sourced ingredients and vegetarian fare, all served by a friendly and knowledgeable team of people. I love stopping in for lunch and grabbing a yummy brownie as an afternoon snack w coffee. Well worth a stop!

Betty's is a funky little restaurant in downtown Buffalo that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus a Sunday Brunch (not buffet). The food is wonderful and definitely worth the wait for a table (they do take reservations but you need to meet certain requirements for certain days/meals). Their menu includes the regular fare but they also have very different items... More

After being snubbed by the hostess for not having a resevation, there were six customers in the restaurant, we were greeted by a very nice waitress. My husband loved his fish stew, my chicken was bland! Bread was okay,I've had way better!
