“Get their baked pies, period.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Don't get me wrong, I love a good French Silk pie like the next person, but it is hardly where Betty's does its best work. If you're looking for a homemade pie that will remind you of food from your youth, than their baked Rhubarb pie can't be beat (crunch version, of course). If you're not a Rhubarb fan, than they have a variety of other pies that are quite good. Outside of that, however, I would say Betty's is like any other "greasy spoon" except they are on the north shore.

“Great Pie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

We loved the raspberry rhubarb pie with ice cream. This is a great cafe for just pie or a meal topped with pie. I had a pastie for the first time ever, and it was delicious. I would recommend the chicken pastie, and of course, the raspberry rhubarb pie. Reasonably priced restaurant. Nothing fancy. Down to earth, friendly staff.

“Pie Lover Heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Our first trip to Betty's pies was years ago and we felt we had stumbled upon a diner worth traveling miles for!! The food was beyond tasty for diner fare, and oh the pies sent us into orbit! More recently, when we've visited, we have felt the entrees are a bit more hit and miss (although we are still huge fans of their burgers.) But Betty never disappoints with her pies! Her crumble toppings can't be replicated - well worth a stop at Betty's for any of her extensive pie choices so you can become a fan yourself!

“DELICIOUS PIES!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

There is a long list of pies to choose from when visiting this quaint restaurant located just north of the town of Two Harbors. It's a must stop for a meal or quick snack....our family each tasted a different pie and we each loved our choices. (Brumbleberry, Apple, Blueberry, and Banana Cream pie) Take the time to drop by, there's always a line outside so be ready to wait if you want to eat inside otherwise you can get your pie to go and eat outside at one the tables.

“A little disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

We'd stopped here a few years ago due to rave reviews from our friends. We loved it and the pies were delicious. Fast forward back to the present...I took my parents and other family to Betty's on our way back from Split Rock and Gooseberry Falls.

We all ordered different items (cheese burgers, fried chicken, and all of us ordered different pies). At best it was average. The food was so-so, the waitress seemed flustered, the pies were nothing to write home about. My dad is famous for saying he only likes two kinds of pie: hot pie and cold pie. He didn't even finish his pie. :(

We probably won't stop on our next trip through. Hopefully the staff at Betty's can turn this ship around.
