This was a nice clean place. It was so wonderful we went back the next day! Visiting the area from Florida as we were going to the vineyard! A great friendly place. We were 3 adults a teen and 6 & 8 year old. They are busy and we did have to wait about 5-10 min but it was worth... More

My mom and I had breakfast here before going over to Martha's Vineyard. The food and service were excellent. The pricing was very reasonable, and the waitress refunded our quarter when the juke box didn't work. It opens early which is also nice.

We had breakfast here. Felt like we were back in the 50's. It's retro and clean. We loved it, food was great and the server was awesome. Will definitely go back!

I've been to Falmouth many times, but had never eaten here - always had good reviews. I thought everything was very average, even need to return my eggs because they were cooked to hard. Pancakes, bacon, etc... were just "ok". Will try again on my next trip - maybe caught on an off-day. Remember - CASH ONLY

Betsy's Diner is an adorable old-fashioned looking diner that seems to have come right out the 1950's! The food was good, the service was friendly and fast, but the inconvenience of having to find cash makes it not worth the effort. Luckily our party figured out the cash only problem before being seated, and ordering our food. But unfortunately for... More

Well, it is always good to know that breakfast is available even if you arrive after the 11AM deadline for other Falmouth Main Street restaurants. Love the charm of these old diners although 1940/50 diner booth seating for 4 large adults can be a challeng. Traditional diner waitress service has always been very fast and Betsy's easily fulfills that wish.... More

Blueberry pancakes were delicious! Our server was friendly, accommodating, and prompt. She made sure to refill my decaf coffee when I was 3/4 of the way done! Only hiccup was not having cash on hand... had to leave and find the nearest ATM, which was next door.

Betsy's is just what you would expect from a traditional retro American Diner. It is very popular but the Host keeps things moving and we never had to wait too long for a table. The booths each have wee juke boxes (such a shame they are no longer wired up) We had our breakfast there nearly every day and soon... More

Enjoyed breakfast at Betsy's, which was worth the 20 minute wait. Asparagus omelette was ample and tasty. The place is bustling as a diner ought to be, which lends a genuine retro vibe. Good food, good coffee, and great atmosphere. What's not to love? Thumbs up! 👍
