Christmas Day: Open at 8:00pm for cocktails and merriment!

Betty Danger’s Country Club, a kooky Country Club located in Palm Springsland in sunny Nordeast Minneapolis. Home to the Danger, a vertically revolving dining and drinking experience.

Now presenting; Mary’s Christmas Palace open now and running until Feb. 28th or so. Where mismatch Christmas decor with a retro flare plasters every nook and cranny…Mary, Betty’s other personality, has gone overboard with everything Christmas, including tacky balls and bows, lights, garland. Mary will debut an all new American country club classics menu with Christmas time eats and drinks for the entire winter season.

Additional tables may be available if reservations are full.
*Please note: reservations are for the dining room only. The Danger (wheel) & Patio seating is on a first come first served basis.

Service was excellent. We had the breakfast buffet which was good old fashioned comfort food. Good for a cold winter's day. If you are on a diet it was a little heavy on the protein , fat and salt. Very much a 1970's meal.

My daughter's and I enjoyed our visit.. However, I think the pricing is a bit high and the waitress at any given time had us waiting a long time and it wasn't busy.. It was fun though!

We often go to Betty Danger's during the summer for a drink and a ride on the ferris wheel- it's great for that purpose! We went for dinner for Valentines day (admittedly, we planned poorly due to the stress/joy of having a 2 month old, and this was far, far from our first choice, but we had childcare and needed to get out!). The entire place looked like the tackiest Christmas bomb went off- obnoxious decorations everywhere, and certainly not nearly as charming as the place usually is. They had a "special" Valentine's day menu filled with overpriced salmon, steak, and other standard fare- $27 for a mushy steak, mediocre mashed potatoes, and some veggies I can't remember. The salmon was $24 and looked like the salmon one can eat for $5 at IKEA. I could have made something much better (and often do). Not only that, their usual menu with tacos, enchiladas, etc was filled with "Christmas comfort food".... While we went with low-ish expectations, it was extremely painful to pay $100 for a beyond mediocre meal in a pretty ridiculous setting. Sorry Betty's, you're great for a drink but we'll never have a meal here again!

Loved the fact the holiday motif was held over through Valentine's Day. Was told by others the food was the lesser part of the experience, but not for us. Cone of cheese was good, but could gave used more crackers - our only gripe. The pot pie I had was delicious, as we're the brussel sprouts. My wife liked her salmon. Portions were large, value good. Service was good, too. Our server made some excellent recommendations. We'll be back!

Went here recently with friends for the first time. Like Psycho Suzi's motor lounge, it is a fun themed restaurant. Overall, our food and drinks were quite good. We ordered a variety of things at our table. Quality ranged from good to great, and the staff is very friendly and provided terrific service. The atmosphere is fun and crazy and was perfect for our MN cold evening. Can't wait to return in the summer for a ride on the Ferris Wheel and a round of putt putt golf!

I LOVE the decor here. Cannot get over it, so kitschy and awesome - a great place to take out-of-towners! This place is also amazing for large groups, as long as you make a reservation ahead of time they can even fit your party of 12! Food is good and at a good price and servers are usually fun and upbeat!

We were greeted right away, but weren’t asked for orders on drinks. I asked 8 min later if she could take our drink order and she told me it would be another minute, then didn’t come back for another 10 min. We got our drinks after sitting at the table for over 25 min., which kept us from enjoying the bottomless mimosa hours for as long as desired. Our server also snapped at one of my guests for clarifying a billing error, it was rude and the entire table felt awkward about it. Idk if she was having a bad day or we weren’t her ideal table or what but it definitely impacted everyone’s mood on my birthday.

Love the restaurant atmosphere. Great place for a yummy brunch. Slow and unsatisfactory server (Jess C.).

I took my friend here to celebrate her birthday and we were awed by the kitschy Christmas decorations! So much fun. The dinner was pretty good - I had the "Leftover Turkey", which was exactly what you'd expect and a little too much to finish. The lemon bars we ordered for dessert were outstanding. Our waitress was awesome, as were the people at the reservation desk. We were pretty surprised to see someone on the Ferris wheel, drinks hand, on a January night! Fun place. Since it was my only time there, I'd have to try something else on the menu before I made up my mind about the food.

Service was a great from start to finish! From the very friendly hosts to our server Mikey, we we treated fantastically. Not only was our server attentive but the wait assistant, Kylee was a doll. We even had the manager on duty stopped by to engage with us and to see how our experience was. The decor was insane, in a good way. Betty, I hope you keep your Christmas themed sister/personality around. Christmas all day was so fun! Thanks Betty and her crew.

I love coming to Betty Danger's in the summer. Their tacos (particularly the Sloane Shrimp taco) are delicious, the chips and salsa tasty, and the margaritas are a perfect accompaniment. Unfortunately, their winter menu did not meet expectation. I had the turkey leftover meal and the turkey tasted like turkey loaf - very salty. The mashed potatoes and stuffing were equally salty. Didn't enjoy the meal at all. The ambience was fun - over the top holiday decorations. Service was only okay. We had to ask (twice!) for silverware and for appetizer plates.

We came in for a fun night after Christmas. Hostess greeting was lukewarm, no smile or welcome. Sat us next to the music being set up- I mean an inch away. I asked what time the music would be starting and was told any minute, so then asked if we could be moved as there were many empty tables. Two hosts talked between themselves for five minutes going through every table in the place. Again, no eye contact, no'let's see what we can do' , no ' sorry but we are full'. Nothing. Told we could move to a table a little further away from the band. I asked about another a bit further and agian was told 'the tables are already assigned.' We decided to take the table they offered, moved all of our own stuff, then 10 minutes later a host came over and said we could have the table I asked for initially. At that point we stayed where we were.

The place is decorated over the top for Christmas which was great. The waiter we had was a lovely guy. Helpful and friendly. The music when it did start was good, especially not being right next to it. Didn't expect much from the food as we came for the ambience. It was all very salty. So much so that we did not take leftovers. And expensive for what it is. Couldn't do the ferries wheel as it was too cold to run.
