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.

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.

I had their ribs and substituted the fries for the most AMAZING scalloped potatoes! The ribs were awesome too! My friend had the pot pie and raved about it! We went there to hear my favorite, Jennifer Grimm's band and was not expecting the food to be this GREAT!!! YUM!!! We will be back!!!

I had been here a few weeks ago, and loved the decorations. I knew my 6 year old granddaughter would love them and it would be the perfect place to take her. She loved it! She loved the horse ride too!

We had reservations at 8:00pm, we were early and was told we just had to wait a few minutes at 8pm we stood right by the hostess and she proceeded to seat more people. I asked her what was going on with our reservations, she looked at me puzzled, she gave our table away and forgot about our reservations. She said it would be 5 minutes, it was another 15. The food was ok, but very over priced. Happy Hour is definatley better. It was fun and loved all the Christmas decorations. I went there before at happy hour and our waitress was great and the prices were good. The menu is very limited, they definatley need more appetizer choice (very odd appetizer menu) we took our kids, they thought it was neat, but were very frustrated like we were. Won't be going back anytime soon.

This place is normally kooky and fun. But the x-mas decor takes it up to 11! Really puts you in the seasonal spirit. The special holiday themed food and drinks were also very good. And don't miss taking in the MPLS skyline views from the Ferris wheel.

Went in December for a girls night and LOVED all the decorations. So festive and fun and enjoyed all the detail to the decorations as well as the creative Christmas Themed menu!
We rode the carousel and were grateful for the warm blankets they gave us to keep us cozy as we enjoyed the winter night views.

The service Was good to start. Then a big group came and took the server's time . After the appetizers did not get the soup I ordered and the food came out cold. The flavors were wonderful. What's a little disappointing as I was looking forward to the French onion soup. More upsetting was that the server did not even apologize.

We had a great time and a great meal on our first visit to Betty Danger's. Loved the pork burrito. Only suggestion would be a better selection of wine by the glass. Had a glass of pinot grigio, which was not good.

We took friends from Texas in. The noise level at 8 pm for dinner on a Saturday was so loud you could not hear your conversation with the person next to you. Not enjoyable to sit and not be able to speak. It was for 2 birthdays and I brought in cupcakes for the celebration and instead of saying happy birthday to the 2 birthday people our waiter said I will need to charge each person a $1.50 as a plate charge. Mind you he did nothing other than dump a bunch of plates off at the table. We had to ask for silverware and napkins as our table had none and when we got some it was not enough for the 7 people so we asked again. Had to repeatedly ask for water. One person was missing sour cream and we had to ask twice to get it to our table long after asking for it the first time. I wanted a fun experience for my friends but ended up with a horrible experience. Very disappointed.
