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.

Sitting out on the awning-covered patio was a lovely way to get served a very delectable father's day breakfast. Crab cakes benedict and salmon benedict were both top class. Did someone say home fries? Fried just right, so you can really taste the potatoes. Service was very attentive. The plastic outdoor chairs were a little hard on the back, but... More

If you're downtown don't miss Betty's. If you're not downtown, go anyways! The food is always interesting and well presented. Portions are perfect!

We live in Niagara-on-the-Lake and we dine at Bettys frequently. The food is tasty and fresh, the menu is unique and inspired. The decorating is eclectic making it a fun place to be. The staff is friendly and it is a comfortable environment. My favoutite "Blunch" dish is the chilaquilies!

A very good brunch location with easy parking surrounding the restaurant. Bf had the Chilaquiles which was very good, and I had the ham steak and potato latkes with homemade apple sauce and cornbread which was also delicious. We waited for about 10 minutes for a table on Sunday early afternoon, was seated outside in the shade on a sunny... More

In what had long been a run down area bordering downtown Bflo, Betty's is a bright spot of renewal and the area is coming along with it. We ave been there several times for lunch and have never been disappointed. Built into an older structure that has been completely renovated, the interior is inviting. You enter into a small bar...

I loved the lunch I had there, and I've never had the breakfast, so this review is about the dinner. We had dinner there last week, and it's the third time I've had dinner there. Each one has been disappointing. Not bad, but the place makes you expect something really good. Most recently, I had the roasted pear salad, and... More
