Lovely place. Plain ordinary, diner-type cooking. Ingredients are top-notch and well cooked. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Right on the main street of downtown Shepherdstown.

(If you read my profile or reviews, I try and compare apples to apples and so forth..thus the 5 circle review...next time I go to Ruthies in NSB, if they're the same, I'll upgrade them to 5 too). If you love 1950's diners or lunch counters, please line up. There may be a wait if you don't get there early or late. The seating is limited but includes booths and the counter and a person wearing a T-shirt declaring "I'm not Betty"....but who cares. The line is there for a reason. The good citizens of Shepardstown go there for incredible biscuits and gravy and whatever else is on the menu. We've only had breakfast there (well... bunch too) so I can only speak to what's on the breakfast menu plus a hamberger. And over the 10 years we've been going there (twice a year to do white water rafting or tubing or hiking), it is still great. By the way, I brought to women of a certain age (my grandmother and her sister who have traveled the world) but love simple breakfasts, there and they were happy.

When we visit Charles Town, WV, we always make a breakfast stop at Betty's. It is a small place, but they serve the best sausage I have ever tasted. Everyone working there goes out of their way to make sure you are happy and the prices are so reasonable to boot! What a wonderful establishment Betty has created. This will continue to be one of our favorite restaurants. Too bad we live out of town - I would love to have a place like this restaurant in my hometown!

Picked Betty's as we couldn't see anywhere else to go for breakfast.

Directed to a booth with the wave of a hand - by an older woman I didn't think this place was too friendly!

We waited ages on our breakfast - my partner pointed out that regulars coming in after us were getting their breakfasts first......I said to him they were just having toast but I'm really not sure!!
There is a note up advising slow service!

The older woman sneezed into her sleeve behind the counter and didn't go wash her hands - this freaks me out - we had our breakfast before this thankfully!

I had to ask for more coffee - my partner never got a refill!

Would I go again - no - although my omellete was ok.....

Betty's serve my husband the best sunny side up eggs, fried potatoes & ham that he had ever had! The staff was very friendly and funny. We loved it so much that we returned two days later! :-).
