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.

Food was excellent but the service was terrible before and after we got to our table. Took over 15 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation. Everyone who was working the reception desk was so disorganized. Our table had been ready and cleaned for awhile but nobody was seating us. Table service also wasn’t too spectacular. Our waitress took forever to come back to our table and never once checked in with us; it was only when we grabbed her attention that she would come by.

Went with friends to celebrate my birthday and everyone had a good time - some of us had been before and those who hadn’t really enjoyed the experience. We played mini golf, even though it was sprinkling out there and went on the Ferris wheel.

The food is always amazing. I had the Awesome Chicken Tacos and they were delish. Also split the Avocado Smash with my table and it was great too. The two Harvard Margaritas I had were the best way to end the work day, super refreshing.

Everything was great. Our server was trying to be trendy and Quirky but the actual service fell short. His apron was filthy. He could have sold us more drinks. He could have engaged with us more. That said, we had a ton of fun and would definitely go back and recommend!!

Our server was entertaining and accommodating. We sat out on the patio which was very noisy from trucks and motorcycle traffic. The food was okay. The calamari was way too salty. The poutine was a generous portion but didn't leave a lasting impression.

We really enjoyed our dinner; the food was great and the server was great too. However, WOW, the room was super loud! It was difficult to talk at the table. I found it surprising since there seemed to be many soft surfaces to absorb sound and we were there relatively early with 6:30 reservations. It was just too loud to talk without having to elevate our own voices. If we go again, we'll be sure to sit outside where the volume of voices was a bit quieter.

Although our staff went during happy hour, the only thing I was a little bit confused about was the fact that we received our food in plastic bins, although it get that it may be on the "plastic saving side", it was just different/weird to me, and our staff had to park about 1-2 blocks away due to the fact that there was no parking. Otherwise, great server and experience !

Love Beatty Danger’s! Riding The Danger and mini golfing turn the great food and ambience into a great outing with friends and family. We started out in a nice covered outdoor area right by the outdoor seating, but a table full of smokers ruined the mood—they were allowed to smoke there but it was blowing straight onto our table several feet away. We had to move indoors which has a nice decor, but noisier and not as nice as getting to enjoy the breeze.
The Yale Margarita is a pinky delicious sweet margarita treat and I’ve yet to have any anything less than great there!

Such a fun environment but a disappointing dining experience. For our party of seven, food bordered on inedible for four of us. (Really salty fries, greasy burgers and tacos.) Our server started strong but sort of forgot about us half-way through. The bar was extremely backed up so it took nearly 30 minutes to get drinks (though tasty). Worst part was that some random guy did his “piano practice” - playing poorly and singing loudly - while we were there at the table in front of him, and despite complaints, no one stopped him. The mini golf was fun and drinks were great, but I wouldn’t go to eat again.

We had 3 generations of relatives in town from Florida and Kansas City. So where else do you go where 20-somethings to 80-somethings all have a great time. Betty's!!! Everyone ordered something different (not by plan) and everyone enjoyed their food. Pedro made great suggestions. We made reservations and were seated out by the Ferris wheel. The weather happened to be perfect. My 2 nieces and my mom and I ordered the pink signature margaritas and took a spin on the Ferris Wheel. The river, bridge and Mpls skyline was beautiful and impressive. Maurice - running the Ferris Wheel was adorable. Everyone was sending pictures and was talking about it for days. I was the hero for coming up with the dinner idea and it was a surprise and everyone loved it and wished they lived here. They will be talking about what a great time we had for a long time. Thanks Betty Danger!

I have been at this place with friends couple times but this was my first time for dinner, I need to start by saying I really like this place but I cannot just let go what happened, so we were a party for 7, I arrived on time, we were set on our table, 1.- the waitress never brought us anything to drink until after 8 min when more people started to show, 2.- we get our orders and we get our food, one of my friends request no lettuce and no sour cream, the plate comes with it and he nicely tells the waitress, what she does is NO NO, she says "oh I did tell them not to put lettuce and sour cream, well I'll take it back, or I can just do it here since this is what I will be doing in the kitchen and it will take too long" so she grabs someone else's fork and starts scooping the lettuce and sour cream like REALLY?. 2.- We are all done with our meals and as soon as she takes our plates away she brings us the bill, like we are not even done yet and we told her that we wanted more drinks and she said yeah I can add them later, later she came back saying that her shift is almost done thats why she gave us the bill but ... anyway 3.- the checks, yes we are 7 and we wanted split checks after a few back and forths (maybe 5 times) she gets all our tabs correct, we all hand our cards and when she comes back, its all messed up, she has one person drink on someone else, I dont get charge but another person gets charged for my food so we tell her and she complains that we are too many, and we say yes, we understand but the tabs were already correct, so she suggest that I owe the guy that got charged for my meal and that that would be the easy solution, but easy solution for her! this other person was in my party but wasnt my friend directly. she calls someone else who says is the manager and he kinda starts yelling at us telling us what is going to happen, that all transactions would be cancelled and we all be charged again. At the end the service sucked, it was very frustrating.

The ferris wheel provides a spectacular daytime view and the ride was slow and easy. Definitely not for a thrill seeker but great for a handicapped older woman friend. It was not busy and the operator asked if we'd like a couple extra revolutions. It was a "choice" Minnesota afternoon so we said "certainly".

The decor and atmosphere are the only reason to visit Betty Danger's. The food and cocktails were mediocre at best. Our server made frequent stops at our table to check in, but when the server asked the typical "How is everything?" and one person replied that their meal was cold, he just shrugged his shoulders and walked away. Another person in our party received their meal a full 10 minutes after everyone else in our group got their meals. The cocktails were awful. My husband got the 'Pims Cup', which, he discovered after he tasted it, uses Tang as a drink mixer. Quirky and fun can be a great quality for a restaurant, but the food and drinks still need to use quality ingredients and taste good! If you want to go for the atmosphere, stick with beer and appetizers. Your wallet and stomach will thank you.

What a wonderful evening. We met friends there and made reservations for 6, and walked in to the table and prompt service. The ambiance, atmosphere, and energy of Betty Danger’s is through the roof. So much fun after we finished dinner we did the Ferrish Wheel, and the. The 8 1/2 holes of putt-putt. This is a great spot for dating, friends getting together, or even an evening out for fun. Be sure to experience Betty Danger’s Country Club ASAP!
