As always we search for the best breakfast! We came to Betty's based on its good reviews. We both had the waffles, which is strange for us... one with a side of ham & the other with a side of sausage. The waffles were okay, nothing great.... sausages were good but the ham was overcooked and a bit tough. Good... More

My husband and I went to Betty's because we have had some good experiences there. Most of the good experiences, though, were for breakfast. My husband ordered the shrimp and grits, which he liked very much. I ordered, the rice, with black beans, shredded mole chicken, and cheese. Sounded good. But it was pretty one dimensional. Too many beans. Not... More

We like Betty's, but this was likely an "off night." However, when I drive from the suburbs to eat at Betty's or anyplace downtown, this customer expects -and deserves - 100% Indifferent and poorly informed waiter. He did not describe a certain dish accurately which we sent back. Was distant after being a bit challenged. The piece of salmon on... More

Went here for Sunday brunch, and it was literally one of the best brunches I've ever had. The three of us got a ton of food: chilaquiles, portabello benedict, scrambled tofu hash, a side of seitan sausage, and this like stuffed french toast casserole dish they had on special. Everything was so delicious, I ate so much and still wanted... More

I had black bean soup and a butternut squash risotto dish- both excellent vegetarian dishes! This place has something for everyone and is a really cool, unique atmosphere. We'll definitely be back!

Had dinner here. I was very impressed with the menu and atmosphere. The menu was innovative, using unique ingredients and preparations. Same for the bar menu. This restaurant can accommodate vegetarians and those with food allergies, but at the same time they can accommodate carnivores. They seem to do it all with ease. It's a small neighborhood place, smack dab... More

Betty's was recommended by by friend's hairdresser, and is a well known down town Buffalo restaurant. We went there for dinner before going to a show at Kleinhans. We were welcomed by the friendly hostess though we were early, before 5 pm opening. She was very knowledgeable about the items on the menu, and recommended the Lamb Lollipops. They were... More

Friends recommended this restaurant and we certainly agree with them. The Mahi Mahi salad was excellent. We have recently decided to retire in Buffalo and have been very impressed by the number of fine smaller restaurants but Betty's doesn't take a back seat to any of them They have the best coconut cream pie that we ever had.

We had been to Betty's several times over the years, often bringing out-of-town visitors when they stayed with us. It was one of our favorite places to eat. A couple of years ago we stopped coming because everything just seemed a little less quality driven from the service to the food. Saturday, we gave it another chance, stopping in for... More

Had a breakfast sandwich the size of a small planet, plus home fries. Greasy and good. Friendly service as well. Pretty busy spot.

Betty's is located in an historic building in the colorful Allentown neighborhood in Buffalo. A large part of its ambiance is created by exhibits of the work of local artists, which change every two months.Our full service bar features New York State distilled spirits, an interesting and well-rounded wine and beer list and special seasonal cocktails. While famous for its Sunday brunch, Betty's is also a popular place for dinner for pre-theater and pre-symphony patrons, for business breakfasts and lunches and for special family occasions.
