Breakfast in a traditional diner setting was a nice break from some elegant eateries -- portions large, food tasty, service with attitude, priced right. And they even ran the model train for us!

Basic fare burgers, sandwiches, breakfast, etc. , but the sausage gravy was like my grandmother made! Very small dining area. Service was good and employees were frendly.

Very good breakfast! Nothing fancy, just excellent food. Packed most of the time, for a good reason: good food!

Bettys is a family restaurant.Be prepared to possibly wait because of its popularity.We went for breakfast and there were huge portions of food.The biscuits are delicious.The area of the resaurant is small but the service and the food make up for that.A great place for a great meal.

In addition to an almost 2 hour ordeal due to extremely slow service, we received wrong food (didn't bother asking for it to be fixed because we couldn't wait another hour), and had to continuously swat flies off our food (indoors!).

We eat here every time we spend the night in Shepherdstown. Their breakfast selections are well prepared. I love the corned beef hash. The servers are efficient and friendly. This is a down home, not a fancy place.

Typical small town greasy spoon with aged (but very clean and tidy) furnishings. Staff is friendly. I've only eaten here for breakfast, which is excellent, and frequent it often. They have a phenomenal bowl with potatoes and eggs and choice of meat, smothered in your choice of sausage or chipped beef gravy, and cheese. I think they still won't accept... More

My entire family has eaten there since the 1960's when Betty herself used to help serve three meals per day. Later on in the 80's and 90's, Betty used to perch on the counter stool and keep the books. She and her waitress, Elca, would know exactly what you wanted when you ordered "the usual". Now Betty's passed on and... More
