We already had lunch so stopped in for a dessert about 2 p.m. Place was filled up with lunch crowd and lunches looked huge and delicious. I had a dish of butter pecan which was the best I'd ever had. Smooth as gelato and stuffed with pecans. Hubby's strawberry milkshake was enough for 2 or 3 people. Never made it... More

Overall impression was that it was a bit cramped. I had a window table towards the corner so it didn't bother me too much. I ordered a Rueben and it just wasn't very good. Perhaps they do better with the rest of the menu, but my sandwich wasn't wworth the price.

Betsy's brings back the "old days" with a nostalgic atmosphere and wonderful "soda fountain" ambiance! The food is simple yet GREAT, the service is friendly, and the atmosphere is welc0oming. Do stop in, particularly with the Grandkids and have a REAL milkshake, burger and fries....or a other wonderful choices.

A great place for lunch. Lots of foods to choose from and everything I have ever had has been good. As I noted before, love their pimento cheese. Good service and nice outside dining area. Inside is nothing fancy and a bit crowded but it works.

Betsy's On The Corner is locally owned café that serves a good variety of lunches at a reasonable price. The chicken and dumplings is probably the best around (actually more chicken than dumplings). There are plenty of options for sandwiches as well as different choice of bread. They also have great cakes and serve huge slices. They have a great... More

Betsy's is one of those places that you see on food channel TV shows. It is quaint with an interesting menu and a feel of having traveled to a food Mecca. The wait staff is down home friendly (Karen) and makes you feel like you are a regular from the first visit. I had their Italian burger. I have not... More

Loved the decor. Overall staff was friendly. Our waitress was a little frigid. It's a popular spot around noon. The place filled up quickly. The onion rings and french fries were good. My wrap was okay. My husband enjoyed his burger.

With the Formica tables (complete with aluminum edge molding) you'll feel like you've stepped back in time. Burgers, fries, hot dogs plus great soups and salad are simple but done right. You can start your day with a big breakfast or a gigantic breakfast, all cooked to order. The gigantic brekkie I mention is probably the most expensive menu item... More
