The food here was absolutely wonderful! I had a burger and sweet potato fries! Simply amazing! If you want a good burger or anything else, then try this place. The prices are very reasonable!

The staff is always friendly at Betsy's, and we regularly have dinner there every other week when we're downtown. The menu offers a nice range of comfort food, and there are daily specials (we often stop by on pot roast day). The atmosphere is casual.

Yes, we area little noisy, but the noise means people are talking and laughing and having a great time. I hope you enjoyed the food. Thank you! Betsy

It seems just about everyone in Aiken eats lunch at Betsy's so you need to time your trip; the crowd starts coming around 11:30 and doesn't let up until around 2:00. They have instituted a sign in at the front to take care of the...More

Betsy's brings back the feel of a yesteryear ice cream parlor. They serve good food and tasty treats. This is a great place to bring a family. Be warned that it is pretty crowded at lunchtime.

Food was awesome. Diane was so friendly. Got a big hug from her. This place was packed for lunch. Had the flounder special. Onion rings were homemade. Generous portions. Ice cream looked fantastic but we were so full we couldn't eat anymore. Very friendly😉

Description
It's noisy; it's busy — but you know, that's what a diner is. It's a fun place. We are dedicated to providing the best food and service anywhere. Enjoy full table service from a menu of homemade soups and salads, hotdogs, burgers, specialty sandwiches hot off the grill, daily Blue Plates (just like Mama made), frosty shakes and ice cream treats at our old-fashioned soda fountain. Hearty Southern breakfasts are served on Saturday mornings.
