Once you find Betshi's you're in for a real treat. For some reason, this place always seems calm and quiet when we've visited. But there are likely livelier times. That said, the German menu, while simple, is truly excellent and the prices are very reasonable. Enjoy.

Great place for lunch. We have not yet made it there for dinner. Delicious meats - very tender and tasty, ground in house. Good selection of wine and drinks.

My wife and I have been eating at Betskis at least once a month since they opened. The food is outstanding. The Kielbasa is as good as my uncles that brought the family recipe from Poland. Their Weinerschnitzle is second to none They have an exceptional Fine Beer and wine list. The service is always efficient and.friendly. Leah, Andy &... More

I have been to Germany decal times and this food is authentic. Food and service was very good. We went on a Tuesday and it was crowded so make a reservation to be safe. Wide variety of German beers available. Definitely go to this place if you want a nice experience.

I recently had lunch at J Betski's in Seaboard Station. I hadn't had German food in a while so was looking forward to it. It is a small restaurant with not too many tables so I recommend making reservations. The tables are very close together too. The table we were given was cracked in many areas. I don't think it...

If you appreciate good German or Polish food, try this place. Get the chopped salad and one of the appetizers. Wife got a bratwurst and I got a pork+beef smoked kielbasa. Both came with sauerkraut and two types of mustard. Everything was excellent and plenty big. Main entrees are larger portions and can be pricey, but our friends (both big... More

This is a intimate , meaning smallish, restaurant that we frequent often. Most all the various stuffed sausages and sauerkraut are made in house. The service is above average and the prices are reasonable. Great place to go on a chilly winter evening.

Went with another couple, and I highly recommend reservations (which we had). Started at the bar with the attentive and entertaining bartender (we arrived prior to our reservation). We all enjoyed our various appetizers and entrees. Seating can be a bit tight, depending on where your table is. We had a window seat which was was good.

My son mad reservations to eat at J. Betski’s in Raleigh, NC on December 27th. The dining space is relatively small (mirrors give the impression it is larger) and seating is quite tight. The decor was geared to the Christmas season when we visited. There is a bar, outside seating (in nice weather), and a relatively small dining room. We... More
