Restaurant Category: Tavern
Picnic-style tables and blackboards lettered with the names of the gazillion brew choices add a convivial beer-hall sensibility to this popular Ferndale spot. Betty’s menu goes beyond the expected to deliver a winning list of New Orleans-themed dishes – from po’boy sandwiches and gumbo to fried seafood platters and Cajun chicken and sausage – and, of course, a mouthwatering bacon burger. Don’t worry; there are plenty of other beverages, typified by Betty’s 17 bourbons and 23 Scotches. There’s also a terrific Sunday brunch and house-made donuts. D daily, Br. Sat.-Sun.
