“Will go again... and again...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

My only hangup is that this place has a very open layout and will likely be loud during peak hours. Quiet conversation is unlikely. OTHERWISE, it was pretty darn awesome. Did someone say beer?? One-Eyed Betty's has an outstanding selection of craft brewed beers and Michigan brews. Our waitress was patient and knowledgeable, and the food was served HOT - you could tell it wasn't sitting around at all. Very awesome. I had their Curry Pumpkin Soup (outrageously flavorful), the Looney Mushrooms with Sriracha Mayo (oh. my. God.), and a beer sampler (6 beers of your choosing). Every penny you spend will buy you oodles of gastronomic delight. Highly recommended for everyone who likes tasty food and tasty beer.

“Brussel Sprouts! :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

One Eyed Betty's is my best friends favorite Restaurant and she's been dying for me to go. I finally went with her one rainy Saturday night and I saw why she liked it. The bar has an open, rustic feel to it. There was live music and open, cafeteria style seating, with a few intimate booths towards the back. The Beer select was huge, and although I'm not a beer drinker, I did enjoy their brussel sprout appetizer, which was a HUGE portion. Overall nice place.

“Eclectic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Make sure to try an adult root beer float (root beer, ice cream and vodka!) outstanding. The crispy brussel sprout starter is another hit, even if you're not a fan of brussel sprouts try these! Loved the grilled cheese sandwich, Po'boy and Betty burger but the fire roasted veggie sandwich was the best of the bunch. Don't miss out on the homemade donuts either. It's all good!!!

“I love this place and I don't drink!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

The pork belly sandwich is outstanding. Love the donut dessert. Overall great food and service. The acoustics could be improved a bit as it gets very loud and it's hard to visit with the people you came with.

“A new favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

There are a ton of restaurants in the Ferndale/Royal Oak area to choose from so the competition is fierce. One-Eyed Betty's has turned out to be one of our favorites. The food is good and just different enough that it isn't the same old same old. Heaping bowls of balsamic laced roasted brussel sprouts are to die for. Burgers are delicious, the mussels just wonderful. And the beer...lots and lots and lots of craft beers. Yum.
