This restaurant was highly recommended by the locals. It was packed at lunchtime with a wait. I ended up just eating at the bar. The food portions were huge and have to say if you love Southern food, this is the place to eat.

This place is a gem! The ambiance is like a movie set for a 1950's Route 66 restaurant. The staff are friendly, solicitous and the waitress who served us even had the big blond hairdo! The food was very fresh, delicious and came out quickly. The restaurant was clean and the bill reasonable. We will definitely go back. Fun!

I was visiting family in Aiken and she suggested dinner at Betsy's on the Corner. What a great little spot! You could tell from the minute you walked in that this place had been around a long time and was a local favorite. The servers knew their customers and treated them like family. The food was excellent-I had one of... More

We love Betsy's! The servers are friendly, loud, southern. The chef/cook keeps a close eye on things and ensures excellent service. Bathrooms are miniscule. Otherwise, we love it. Their sandwiches are excellent. Flavorful, ample servings. I like their daily specials, too. Desserts are always tasty, always home made. This restaurant is for people who are southern or who love southerners.... More

This is a very busy diner. It is hard to hear your lunch partner talking. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. There is a special daily. The food arrived fast but was nothing special. I guess I was expecting more flavor for the high price. This place is not cheap. I think I will skip it the next time... More

The lunch was very flavorful, serving size lunch appropriate and prices reasonable but I felt hurried and the atmosphere wasn't relaxing at all.

Four of us recently ate lunch at Betsy's on the Corner. The place was packed and noisy - extremely noisy! So noisy that the waitress had to shout for us to hear her... that's the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5! The food was great! Each of us has something different: veggie wrap, shrimp plate, shrimp po'boy and... More

My wife and I visited for lunch on a Saturday. The club sandwich was excellent. My wife had a turkey sandwich and salad. The salad was huge and delicious. Normally we skip dessert but the carrot cake was calling her name. I had an ice cream sandwich made with chocolate chip cookies and moose tracks ice cream. We can't wait... More

We started out going to another place when we saw Betsy's and changed our minds. It was a great decision. The food was great, real comfort food for a good value in a relaxed atmosphere.. It's nice to go to a restaurant where the owner is involved and the staff enjoys their job. Great place and next time we're going... More
