The Food

Serving everything from small bites to sandwiches to the iconic Meat Tornado, Smokin' Betty's satisfies any appetite. Even vegetarians can find something made just for them at Betty's.

A Little About Betty's

Smokin' Betty's is a relaxed, fun, environment suitable for families and singles alike. A large open space provides a mixture of seating in the dining room including booths, picnic tables, and a small lounge area. During the warmer months you can kick back on our front porch or in our alleyway.

Featuring a 20 seat bar, Smokin' Betty's is a great spot to crack open a throwback lawnmower beer or sample some whiskey with our three-shot flights. Not to mention our 10 draft beers provide thirst quenchers for a variety of tastes.

Steve Feldmann


Steve owns two of Salem's iconic spots - Gulu-Gulu Cafe and Flying Saucer Pizza Company. Having worked in restaurants since he was a kid he always dreamed of starting one of his own... and then he got carried away.

He loves smushed faced dogs, comics, and enjoys quoting the Beastie Boys whenever possible. 


Erin Oliver


Otherwise known as Mrs. Tim Oliver, Erin has been working for Steve for the majority of her adult life. She is still trying to figure out how she came to this.

She has been spending the first half of 2017 learning how to use power tools and has yet to cut off any limbs.

Erin loves unicorns, beer, and Morrissey, not necessarily in that order.
