“A safer night choice.”

Betty Jo Byoloski's
Ranked #64 of 87 Restaurants in Winona
Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 July 2015

Great for families and good for college students (and adults) looking for a "tamer" night experience, Betty Jo's is spacious with many, many booths and a very large bar for hassle-free drink ordering and socializing. Because of its "pubbish" interior many college students will eschew Betty Jo's for the "divey-er" downtown alternatives, leaving Betty Jo's the safer, saner and more sober nighttime experience.

Tuesdays and karaoke night and there's virtually no waiting if you feel like singing, and patrons are mature and respectful (no drunken screeching). Generally chatter is kept to a minimum and except for the singing the bar can be rather quiet--a nice alternative if you wish to actually visit or hold a conversation with who you came with.

Be wary, if the night is slow the bartender has full rights to close the bar early--sometimes as early as 11:00 p.m.--so get there with plenty of time for drinks and you'll be okay.

Clean, respectful, attractive and attentive quick service make Betty Jo's a solid choice for stable nighttime fun.

They have amazing food, and popcorn to tide you over. My favorite dish is the pizza fries. They also have an amazing selection of beer, and you can pick randomly too. Great bloody mary's, as well. Lot's of people go there to watch the game, hang with friends, go on dates, and/or bring their family. It's great, love Betty Jo's!

My kids got pizza and loved it. I got the chicken dumpling soup, and asked for a second bowl. The service was very good, and friendly. The place was clean, and not noisy. I would go there again.

Been coming here a few years now. Tonight the food was bad. The coleslaw was not mixed correctly, waffle fries were almost burnt and ordered a drink and received something completely different. Management/owner needs to step up and work here and not just run it from the sidelines. Very disappointed, this not the first time we have had problems with service and orders here.

From the looks of the website it seemed like it would have good food and good service. WRONG! server was, well less than sober and less than informative. I asked several questions which he had no answers to and didn't bother to find out. The burger while "hand pattied" had zero flavor. The mac and cheese (boxed) was dry and inedible.

It looks like perhaps once upon a time someone cared about this establishment based on its kick @ss decor. Too bad they gave up. Will not return.
