Smokin' Betty's Ratings and Reviews
The place was so loud we could not have a conversation. The food was fine — I recommend the fish tacos — and priced right; however, green choices were very limited. The hosting service was poor but for our server, SETH, WAS OUTSTANDING. HE SAVED THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE FOR US.
We were looking for a nice place to eat within walking distance to the Walnut Street Theater, this fit the bill.
The signage is odd, we walked past the restaurant til we figured out where it was. Just on the corner of 11th & Samson.
We were greeted & seated right away.
Our server was very nice & efficient. The food was delicious and plentiful. I’ll definitely go back.
Would say the happy hour menu was great, and overall pricing was good. Food was not as good as I was hoping for, I’ve had better BBQ. Also, it was busy, but not packed, and it was even too noisy for us. Can’t imagine how loud it would be with a full house. Service was very good, and food came very quickly, which was good because we had an event to attend and didn’t have lots of time.
My friend and I went here for brunch. The server was nice and polite. My friend ordered the Betty’s breakfast burger but was brought the wrong burger. We told the server it was the wrong burger and he said he would go talk to the chef and bring the right one out. Then, not sure if it was the manager or chef, but short man in a plaid shirt came to our table and asked if there was “a problem with the burger.” My friend said yes and that there might have been a miscommunication but he was brought the wrong one. The manager or chef was very rude and instead of just apologizing for bringing the wrong order, he said “Well the other one is going to be more money.” We were obviously aware of the price since that is the burger we ordered and we felt offended that he thought we were trying to scam him for a couple dollars difference for a burger...This was not a big deal that he was given the wrong order but the way it was handled was incredibly poor. This was obviously their mistake and it seemed like they didn’t believe that my friend knew what he ordered. Safe to say, I will not be returning due to the unprofessional service and the food was only mediocre. No one even apologized.
I have a very limited food plan because of health issues. I had looked at the menu on the internet and there were several things that I could have. However when we arrived only brunch was being served because it was Sunday. I was able to find one thing to have and had the rest served on the side. My husband enjoyed these "extras". They were very accommodating and the waiter did not bat an eye when I told him how I needed my choice served to me. The food that I had was very good and both my husband and I enjoyed the atmosphere.
This meal wAs disappointing
We ate at the bar and received disinterested attention
The wine was fair
We went for the wings which were greasy and skimpy
My husbands sandwich was bland and my salad was just satisfactory
It’ll be a while before we return
Also the restaurant was out of soup and Pinot Noir
This was our third time at Smokin Bettys and, once again, it did not disappoint.
With two active children, our waiter (I think his name was Sean), was patient and kind,
accommodating our every need. Food options varied and interesting as were the adult beverages. Highly recommend!
Enjoyed the most incredible brunch appetizer. I have never seen a pancake appetizer at a brunch, but what a great idea!!!! 3 big pancakes are always too much for 1 person, but as an appetizer it was just right. Hats off to your staff and Mark for such a great idea.
I will definitely be back for the pancake appetizer! Thanks ~ Hoov
I had been to Smokin' Betty's several times but not for several years....for really no reason. In the past 2 weeks I have been here twice....when it rains it pours!
Once with gal friends and then with my husband. Each time was a winner. I had the salmon both times. Others have had pulled chicken, the ribs and chicken BBQ platter, a burger and fish tacos. Everyone enjoyed their meals.
I would suggest reservations, regardless as it a little small and it does get crowded, owing to that depending on where you are it can be a bit noisy, especially upstairs.
Mac and cheese and the bread pudding...must trys!
Visited joint because of their Home Made Mac & Cheese. This is one of my son's favorite dishes. We also love good BBQ even with an urban twist. The waiter was outstanding giving us his complimentary comments on what we were interested to order. I like when the staff's eyes light up. This prepares me for an excellent eating experience. I was not disappointed. Even the bread pudding after the meal with their secret recipe in house whipped cream was outstanding. Great time and a return trip soon...
Dinner for three before attending Walnut Street theater. We ate in the bar area. Bartender was very helpful on the large beers on tap list. Recommend the Left Hand Fade to Black. Pleasant and attentive service. Food was good. I ordered the tavern burger since I hadn't been there before. Next time I will try the daily specials. Desert was bread pudding that my wife shared with me. Not a fan of bread pudding, but this was really good. Should have asked for the recipe
Spending a few days in Philadelphia and was just looking for something different in our general area. Smoking Bettys came up and we thought it sounded interesting without being to formal.
It was a very nice place to sit, have a couple of drinks and some tasty food.
I would like to go back sometime and try more of the menu, as it was we tried a burger (made medium well the way I asked) and a chicken and broccoli rabe sandwich. Both were good. My only complaint was that during happy hour when the Yeungling on draft was only $3, that draft stopped working and I wasn't offered another draft for the same price. I did end up ordering another draft at regular price that was very tasty though.
All in all it was a very good dining experience.
We mistakenly forgot to make a reservation until last minute and thankfully found one 5 minutes before our reservation began here. We got drinks and split two appetizers, which was perfect to share. The service was good, but a little overwhelming - our server came over almost every 5 minutes on the dot. Granted, he was training someone, and better for your server to be there all the time than not at all. Overall, I would go back to Smokin' Betty's, but it's not my top place.
