tried dinner wasn't that fond because the steak dinner was over done, did not enjoy it at all. Tried lunch another time and really enjoyed it.

You can certainly expect friendly service and a down-home feel at Betty's. The brownie for dessert was amazing. I think this is a fair rating for Betty's. The steak seem to be have a fair quality but was overcooked and over-salted. You may ask for it to be cooked a little under what you really want. You can always go... More

They have a two for special for dinner on the weekends. You get really good food at a good price. The other days it is still a good value for the food you get.

For touting their marinated steaks as being the best around, this was simply awful. Very salty, and a thin-cut ribeye that was hard to cut. No good. On the plus side, everything was cheap.

This is another hometown favorite. It's not much in the way of looks, and if you are planning a high end dinner in the area-not your place, but if you want somewhere with a nice view, fun atmosphere, good service, and great food-check it out! The steaks are usually the best around (have had one once or twice that was... More

This used to be a really cool place to eat. Over the years the prices have gone up and up and the quality has gone down and down. The last few times I have been here to eat the place has been absolutely disgusting and the service head been horrible. While the food used to be great it has continually... More

The food there is usually outstanding, especially the steaks marinated in the Betty's sauce. You will find you don't need to ask for A-1 or 57, just because it's that good, when they are on top of their game, but like any restaurant it has its off times too. The view of the river is nice as well. The building... More

My husband and I loved this out of the way place. The decode is nothing to brag about, but the food and service is wonderful. We had ribs that were just right and beef tips that melt in your mouth.

Wow this place is GREAT. You know it's good when you see the line of people waiting outside the door. IT IS WELL WORTH THE WAIT! The steaks are so good they almost melt in your mouth. Then there are the burgers, some of them are so big you might have to have help or take it home for later.

We were driving along the river in Columbia looking for somewhere to have dinner. Always being intrigued and often pleased by local eateries we stopped in. The exterior appearance is not at all impressive. The interior is the same with worn chairs and well used tables. We were seated by the window with a view of the river. The server... More
