This was our second year returning to Betty's based on how wonderful we found the food last year. We dined here twice for lunch during our three-day stay in Buffalo. The food is wonderful, the wait staff perky (despite seeming a bit harried at times with the number of tables assigned to them). We have gluten-free and dairy-free diners in... More

We stumbled upon Betty's as we stumble upon many a fine place in Buffalo with a coupon of some sort! My husband & I are of German/Irish descent, but he is so tight with the $, that I often say he is Scots! The husband is a BIG eater so he was a little disappointed with portion size. I am... More

Went with a party of 5....Took 1 hr. and 10 minutes to be served our entrees. The server told us our food would be out "shortly" almost an hour after we placed our order. We spoke to the manager about 10 minutes after that....She offered many lame excuses, but no apology. Our entrees finally arrived at 6:50 (We gave our... More

First time and highly recommended. Had a ginger old fashioned that was recommended by the bar keep, rice noodle salad and their side of green beans. Right around the corner from HQ, vegetarian and vegan. Great stuff... must go!!

I took my daughter here for her 13th birthday for brunch - We knew it would be a wait and we were ok with it. I let the hostess know that it was her birthday and was kind of bummed when we were sat in the bar area, next to the atm machine, right in front of the constant crowd... More

To be quite candid, Betty's was not our first choice for dinner during our mid-December 2016 visit to Buffalo, however we were delightfully surprised! The menu catered for our tastes and the service was excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed the Vegetarian Paella and my niece ordered and enjoyed the Black Beans and Rice. I would definitely return to Betty's on my... More

Took my wife and 17 yr old son there for a late breakfast. Great atmosphere, service and food. Portions for each dish were healthy. I had the Mickey’s Casserole, normally only severed on Sundays, eggs baked with bread, sausage, cream and cheddar cheese topped with caramelized onions - served with Betty’s home fries. It has to be the best breakfast... More

Decided to try out this restaurant for their vegetarian menu. We were not disappointed. The cheese grits were not what I expected (e.g. being in a bowl as opposed to being a block) but overall they were good.

We had breakfast here. The service was perfect and the food was delicious. We had the breakfast hash with eggs. It was cooked perfectly and the wheat toast was cut thick and looked homemade. Overall..... a great place to eat.

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.
