No kidding, Betty and Jake's belongs in a new Top 10 Greatest Long Term Taverns! Add it to Swallow at the Hollow, The Kent Lounge (before it went upscale), etc. and you've got the makings of a great catigory
My experiences with Betty and Jake's go way back to the late 70's and things things still sound identical to the new review (except the chilly part...everyone in there was always friendly and every T.V, was tuned to the Orioles, naturally!!!).
The food is bar food, yes, but the burgers, shrimp salad, and wings are terrific,and the atmosphere is pure "club basement"; genuine and decidedly un-Charles Street!

In that photo, the shrimp salad looks pretty darn dry an unappetizing...how long did it sit there before the photographer was ready?

Don't let the picture of the shrimp salad fool you. the picture does it no justice. You come and be the judge. It will be the best shrimp salad you ever ate. People come from all over for the shrimp salad. The burgers are great also.
