We tried to go to J. Betski's for my birthday and were turned away because we did not have reservations. So for our anniversary we made reservations and went with our thirteen year old. The atmosphere was very cold; they could stand to heat the dining room better or cover the large expanse of windows. We sat near the tables that seat over four people and there were two groups of extremely raucous people that spoke and laughed so loudly we could hardly hear ourselves. If you don't want this experience, sit on the side of the room near the metal wall sculptures. The beer was the best I've ever had, but the menu was in German and we couldn't understand it. My daughter did not know how to order and none of us got what we thought we were ordering. My food was good but the schnitzle (spelling?) tasted like Tyson chicken patties - good but not worth $18.00. The potato salad and sauer cabbage were very good. The absolute worst thing though was my poor daughter's food. She ordered the quail thinking it would be like a Cornish hen. When it came it was about the size of an aborted canary. It was ringed by five or six pieces of tasteless blue cheese. We had to take her to McDonalds afterwards because she was still hungry. I don't think we will be returning any time soon. There is supposed to be a German place in Cary. I think we will try that next.
