For touting their marinated steaks as being the best around, this was simply awful. Very salty, and a thin-cut ribeye that was hard to cut. No good. On the plus side, everything was cheap.

This is another hometown favorite. It's not much in the way of looks, and if you are planning a high end dinner in the area-not your place, but if you want somewhere with a nice view, fun atmosphere, good service, and great food-check it out! The steaks are usually the best around (have had one once or twice that was... More

This used to be a really cool place to eat. Over the years the prices have gone up and up and the quality has gone down and down. The last few times I have been here to eat the place has been absolutely disgusting and the service head been horrible. While the food used to be great it has continually... More

The food there is usually outstanding, especially the steaks marinated in the Betty's sauce. You will find you don't need to ask for A-1 or 57, just because it's that good, when they are on top of their game, but like any restaurant it has its off times too. The view of the river is nice as well. The building... More

My husband and I loved this out of the way place. The decode is nothing to brag about, but the food and service is wonderful. We had ribs that were just right and beef tips that melt in your mouth.

Wow this place is GREAT. You know it's good when you see the line of people waiting outside the door. IT IS WELL WORTH THE WAIT! The steaks are so good they almost melt in your mouth. Then there are the burgers, some of them are so big you might have to have help or take it home for later.

We were driving along the river in Columbia looking for somewhere to have dinner. Always being intrigued and often pleased by local eateries we stopped in. The exterior appearance is not at all impressive. The interior is the same with worn chairs and well used tables. We were seated by the window with a view of the river. The server... More

Married to a local, I was introduced to this place right away. Upon first glance I was highly unsure of my spouse's choice in selecting this restaurant. Then the food came. Absolutely one of the best steaks I've ever put into my mouth! The catfish is also excellent. Betty's may not hit the mark when it comes to environment or... More

Don't let the decor fool you. The food is so delicious. They have an amazing ribeye and I love their shrimp jammers and Texas toothpicks! Definitely a favorite. And Friday and Saturday their 2 for $22 is a great deal!

We were there last year, around the same time as this year (late February). Last year, the steaks were thin and too salty, barely could eat them, however, we found ourselves super hungry this weekend and all the other restaurants in the area were packed full, so we went back to Betty's. The steak's were GREAT, just like their menu... More
