Casual downtown hometown favorite. The food is excellent and Betsy is a GREAT cook and host. The desserts are awesome...and the fries are even better. I love going for breakfast on Saturday mornings.

I eat at Betsy's about once a month, whether with family or friends. It has the old fashioned soda fountain counter, with homemade milkshakes. The food is American classics with a twist. The menu is tailored around life in Aiken, with dish names. I highly recommend the fried green tomatoes, and the onion rings. The Reuben is also fantastic! too... More

Take a visit back in time when you visit Betsy's On the Corner with it's 50's diner atmosphere and soda fountain. The service is always friendly and the food good. Homemade cakes and delicious items from the soda fountain make a visit to Betsy's a treat. Often there is a wait for lunch, but I've found the dinner hour to... More

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
