I was here for my birthday with a pretty large group of friends and the service and food were excellent. We did the brunching experience, which was about $17/person and we between the 5 of us (of the 8), it was more than enough food.

When making a reservation, I specifically booked a table for outside. When we arrived, they said they were running behind on reservations and that it would be 15 minutes, so we grabbed a drink. I received a call 15 minutes later that our table was ready. When we went back to the host, she said they only had a table inside and that outside would be another hour because they don’t take reservations outside. I told her that on Open Table, the reservation specifically told me it was for an outside table. She said they were aware and they were trying to fix this. Not a deal breaker, but would have been nice to have been notified of this with a phone call earlier or even when we first arrived, as we specifically wanted to be outside.

The restaurant was greatly under staffed when we arrived for lunch making for a less than ideal situation. Counter service for your meal, a long wait for that, meals coming out at different times, etc. overall the staff was pleasant- there just weren’t enough of them for a sunny Friday.

Need better communication all around. Your website did not state when brunch ended. We assumed it would be over at 4 when you had reservations available, and we assumed you'd have a full menu after brunch on Mother's Day. Your website said nothing to the contrary. But we were disappointed to find out that only the lunch menu was available for the remainder of the day. We were seated outside and had to flag down a server after watching them walk by us for 10 minutes. The server we spoke to had no idea she was assigned to our table. In the end, we got a couple appetizers and went on the Danger, which was fun. In the future, I'll remember that that's the best thing Betty Danger's has going, and we'll stick with what we know.

Didn't stay when informed tbat the meal would be BUFFET ONLY, which we hate. It would be nice if the restaurant advised "buffet only," then we could have saved all parties a lot of trouble

3 generations for Mother’s Day brunch. The adults enjoyed the pink mimosas and the fresh OJ was delicious. The food on the brunch line was constantly being filled. There was something for everyone to enjoy. We were lucky enough to sit outside by the Danger wheel. Even though we were street side, the noise level was low, music was playing and plenty of conversations all around but never felt like we had a hard time hearing each other. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone! Will definitely visit again when we can stay longer and try more food and drink options.

We had a great time celebrating our friend's bachelorette at Betty Danger's! We all had tacos, which were quite good, and pink margaritas, which are even better. The only problem was somehow our reservation for 5 was recorded as a reservation for 3 and we had to sit outside instead of at a reserved table. I'm not sure if there was a software issue between Open Table and the restaurant or the reservation was entered incorrectly manually. Despite the mix up, we enjoyed ourselves and would recommend Betty's for groups and special occasions.

We arrived to find that we had been mistakenly seated outside on a cold and rainy night, but the hostess very politely worked to get us a table in the dining room, and we enjoyed the evening a great deal. Very fun, casual atmosphere.

Our first visit to Betty Danger’s was soured by poor customer service. We had a 12:30 reservation. When we arrived, the doors were locked, despite the restaurant being visibly open. We walked around the building to multiple entrances, but couldn’t get in. Finally made our way in as somebody was leaving. Sat down to order and the server informed us that only the brunch menu was being served (wasn’t indicated when we made the reservation, website says “open for lunch daily starting May 1.”). Waited almost 50 minutes to get food, no explanation for delay. We ordered two simple items: guacamole (ended up being bland, essentially just avocados without seasoning) and vegetable egg hash (came without the biscuit as described on menu) When food arrived, server told us we had less than 20 minutes to eat and then had to leave because the restaurant was hosting a Derby party that required a $35 ticket. We ate our food quickly and then on our way out and in search of the restroom were rudely told by management the restaurant was not open and that we needed to wait outside until it opened. We informed her that we’d just eaten our meal and would be leaving shortly. We were escorted out — furthering the unwelcome vibe. Did they think we were trying to sneak in to their party?! Not sure why we were made to feel so unwelcome when the restaurant was clearly to blame for opening when they weren’t equipped to handle regular service before their party.

I’ve always liked BD’s.......took a friend here for a bday dinner. Our secure at the bar was great.....once we were seated, we immediately knew we shouldn’t have left the bar. Our ‘patio’ table was barely outside and near a walkway so people were constantly walking right next to our table. We don’t but think our server was experienced enough to be serving adult beverages. She was very slow AND it took 3 trips to the bar to get our drinks correct. Ugh. We had to ask for silverware, plates for our app and condiments. Beyond annoying.

Our service was very poor. Either they were understaffed Sunday or all the servers just liked hanging out outside (we were inside). We received one brunch platter (all you can eat) for 6 people and it didn't include all items advertised - there was no bacon. When they waiter did bring a side of bacon , there were four under-cooked slices. We requested re-orders (again, all you can eat) and it took so long we just left. There was no salt/pepper on the table - when we requested it took so long we got up and took from another table. The ferris wheel was fun, but we won't rush back.

The dining experience is really about the ambiance. A ride on the Ferris Wheel and good food. Service was slow. Water glasses did not get refilled, we had to ask twice for silverware and then helped ourselves. There were several bridal parties they were VERY loud.

We would go back for the experience and especially if we could eat outdoors.

Very unique place. Server Rachel was fantastic! Food choices were unexpected but delicious. Pay attention to lightening bolts regarding spicy levels. Slushy vodka drink "Yale" was great. And be sure to ride the fertis Wheel "Danger" was amazing, cheap, and several revolutions. Not sure why it took so long to visit but will be back.

The food was average, however was very expensive. We were disappointed by the brunch experience- it stated that “fried chicken” was included - we were served chicken tenders. We found that $17 per person for eggs, pancakes, potatoes and bacon was too expensive. Lastly, the service was really quite terrible. Drinks took forever, the coffee never came, and we were not offered a “refill” on the “all you eat” brunch experience.

With so many other great restaurants in Minneapolis, I feel like I can always get better value elsewhere. The environment is fun, with the Ferris wheel and quirky decor, and I’ll still come on derby day, but definitely not a place to visit regularly.

I was very disappointed with my experience. I booked a reservation for my family for Easter brunch. My mom has celiac’s disease so I called in to double check that there was food she could have. There were many things that the host told us were on the buffet that we’re not in there: like a taco bar with corn tortillas and multiple protein options. Essentially we paid a ridiculous price for my mom to have fruit and scrambled eggs. The food that she couldn’t have wasn’t anything exceptional: cold poutine and chicken strips. I also booked an afternoon reservation. I was told by the host that the buffet would be kept open an ample amount of time so that we could enjoy our holiday meal. We showed up a little early and waited 20 minutes beyond our set reservation time. I understand it was a busy day, but we spent most of our wait listening to members of the staff bicker with each other. After we were seated I ordered bottomless mimosas, but was told they stop at 3 so I most likely wouldn’t be to do that. It was frustrating that they didn’t extend the timeline to 4 for the people that made reservations up to 3pm, especially since we weren’t seated on time. Overall, it was over priced for what we got and I wouldn’t recommend booking special events here. The only plus was our server was very kind. With all of the holiday brunch options available this was extremely disappointing.

We went before heading to a theatre performance. We were almost laughed at when we asked for a booster seat for my 3 year old daughter. The food choices for brunch were really limited. Our food, but for the guacamole, was terrible, very heavy - not fresh tasting at all, we hardly touched it. The atmosphere is so great - but the food, and hostess really made this an unwelcoming place. We will not be back.

Great atmosphere and fun however the food is very average. My husband and I both ordered a taco salad and it was not very flavorful and it was like they just dumped whatever they had on the shelf into the bowl. Another friend had fish and chips and the fish was not cooked all the way - gross. Drinks were good and it is just a interesting fun place to go!

Had a great brunch with a LOT of good food. Betty’s does some dishes that make it stand out - mini donuts and coffee cake, au gratin potatoes, spicy gravy and amazing eggs and meats cooked just right. Family style is a bonus, not a fan of brunch served buffet style in chafing dishes - fresh cooked family style or ala carte is the way to brunch!

Although I didn't look ahead of time to see the limited choices for brunch, it would have been nice to have more to choose from but the food was still excellent! I feel the drinks are not worth the price at all, however, the mini donuts and coffee cake definitely make up for it!
