The atmosphere of Bethany Blues in fantastic. The service is great. The portions compared to the price is a little off according to our group. The food is good, and the kids have plenty of options, but be ready for the bill to add up quickly. Most sides are ordered on their own and not with a meal. Another option... More

Was hoping to be impressed taking my folks out to dinner here, sadly - not so much. Meh. The dinner had a promising start. Dad ordered the Onion Frizzles - shoestring thin onions fried up crispy and served with ranch dressing. Tasty & not too greasy! I ordered a single BBQ Deviled Egg with lump crab and bbq seasoning 1.75... More

Went to eat and found out that by coincidence it was burger night. Basically starts with a special price on a basic burger and then you choose your exras all basically at an extra charge. I added sausage on mine and was disappointed when it came with a tiny portion of meat on it and did in fact complain to... More

This was our first time visiting the restaurant. It's a relaxed atmosphere with music in the background. I saw TVs near the bar, college football game playing. We were seated in a booth on the first level. Apparently, the restrooms and additional seating on the second floor. They have a variety of beers, some local brews, to choose. The cream... More

The restaurant was very nicely decorated, it had a nice atmosphere. The menu had a lot of different options. My favorite item was the fried pickles. You usually get pickle spears or chips, but they used slice strips and they were delicious! The barbecue was good, but not anything really special. The beer selection was ok, but not great. Overall... More

Great food, and Service. Pricing was reasonable as well. Like that it was within walking distance from our motel. Will go back. Bbq is very tasty!

We've eaten here a number of times over the years, and we've always been fans. This is the first time we've walked in the door late enough that we received a much more limited menu. Service was excellent, as always, but the limited menu cramped our style a bit. Crab dip yummy. Pulled pork sandwiches fine. Fat Tire Amber beer... More

Ate lots of Fisher's popcorn during the day and felt bad. Got takeout from Bethany Blues that night - Soup and Smokehouse Salad (spinach and pulled chicken). Tasted great and felt so much better that night.
