“Great Family Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

Betsy's Diner is a downtown gem for local and travelers. We eat breakfast and dinner a few times a month. Our family visitors each summer insist on going to breakfast and the kids love the children menu. The service is great. The owners are hands on ensuring great food and pleasant time for children and adults.

“Great Respite from Overpriced Tourist Trap Eateries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Four day getaway on the Cape (Falmouth / Martha's Vineyard) and made Betsy's Diner the regular stop for fantastic breakfasts at your local family restaurant prices. Very New England-friendly staff.

Although we designated Betsy's as our regular breakfast stop, their lunch and dinner menus had great selections.

“Betsy's is the Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

Betsy's is was and has always been a fantastic DINER in Falmouth. It is very upsetting to read Bus Tours of Elderly people "on a fixed income" who are LEGENDARY for sub-standard tipping and ridiculously demanding service try to affect this family's livelihood. I guess it didn't occur to the fancy tour leader that 35 Eighty something year olds in a SMALL Diner was a bad idea? REALLY? If you are such a savvy traveling group then you should know the ETIQUETTE of traveling: calling ahead, reservations, separate checks are a time sucking pain for small businesses with hand written checks, and leaving a pile of change is an INSULT! Maybe you never had a job, but if you did would you feel appreciated if you were paid with a pile of coins to sort? DUH-REALLY!!
These types of patrons are the BULLIES of the restaurant world: expecting every business to kiss their grits because they are too cheeeeep to cater for their group.
Betsy's food is excellent, the prices are kept very reasonable, the food is a great value, the owners and staff are friendly and hard working people.

“Still a Good Place to Eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

We have been here a few years ago. Recently I read some reviews that were less than pleasant about thier service. We tried it anyway based on past experience. The service was wonderful. The waitress was attentive to our needs and I noticed that she gave some out of staters some helpful advice on things to do in the area. The food was excellent and it came out fairly quickly. We will be back again later this summer. I did mention the review to someone at the hotel and they said yes there is one waitress at Betsy's that can be a bit "salty". They could describe her to a T.

“Seriously?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

I have been eating at Betsy's for years and know most of the staff there. The service is excellent. It always amazes me the excuses people come up with for not tipping. Waitstaff make about $2.63, give or take a buck or two an hour and depend on tips to survive. It is one of the hardest ways to make a living! Threw change at an elderly woman? Really? That would be asault and battery lol. If the owner/manager had to say something to you people, obviously the problem was with you. I commend him for standing up for his staff!
