The portions are enormous. One full plate could feed four adults. The fish was great too many fries. Fish lacked salt. I word of warning be careful when ordering, plates are enormous. Don’t over order!!!

We stopped at Bets per recommendation, and so glad we did. It's a grandmother, mother and daughter operation. These ladies know how to work a casual restaurant in a very busy tourist area of Maine. The portions are perfect. The seasonings they use are spot...More
