Food was downright excellent! Make sure you try J Betski's homemade Kielbasa! Had the Port Schnitzel which was outstanding. Very attentive and knowledgeable waitstaff which always says a lot about a restaurant.

This is in our regular rotation of places to dine out. Nice change of pace from the usual burger/bistro fare. The German entrees, in particular, are authentic and great-tasting.

We had excellent food at J. Betzki's, so good that I have been trying to recreate one of the dishes at home! But Even though we were there fairly early for dinner (6ish) many of the menu specials were already sold out. Next time we...More

My husband and I decided on J Betski’s because were in Surf City this summer and met the owners niece. She pointed us in the direction of the best German Polish restaurant which happened to be her Uncles. Therefore, we had to try it. We...More
