My wife and I went to Betty's on Victoria ave to meet an old friend for lunch. He picked the spot since the mrs and I arent from the Buffalo area. My wife is very particular when it comes to where she eats, & was skeptical about the place, until we got there. She liked the atmosphere. They were very... More

We visited on a Saturday night and enjoyed the atmosphere and service but were underwhelmed with the food especially after seeing all the fabulous reviews both online and from family. Maybe the regular chef was on vacation. All our allergies (of which our group of 9 had many) were well accommodated. We knew it was homestyle cooking and everything was... More

We went here on the recommendation of the front desk person from the Hyatt Regency. The breakfast was amazing I had an omelet with ham tomatoes and wonderful carmelized onions and my husband had the chorizo gravy over eggs and English muffins. Great way to start or day!

I cannot overlook the hour it just took us to get our eggs after the order was placed, in addition to the twenty minutes prior it had taken us to receive our coffee. When I ordered scrambled eggs and a la carte home fries for my three-and-a-half-year-old daughter, stating to the waiter that they were for her, the waiter never... More

A great surprise. Went here for breakfast and the overall experience was wonderful. The food, service, building and location were above expectations. We had the quiche and an omelet, both were executed perfectly. Much better than a typical hotel breakfast.

My family of four enjoyed a unique and delicious meal at Betty's our first night in Buffalo. The restaurant is inviting in an eclectic neighborhood. The wait staff were friendly and helpful. It was a nice welcome to Buffalo.

A restored old brick building with a pleasant canvas covered awning contains a small restaurant on a residential corner just a block from Elmwood Avenue downtown. Think old bare wood floors and local artwork.They have expanded in recent years and now serve more elaborate dinners and have installed a built in bar. Parking is tricky on the neighboring streets.
