Fish is delicious with plenty of fries to top it off. She is a very nice person to speak with. Outside dining only. Some deserts available.

Bet's is a place that can't be missed. The fish is the best I have ever had and Bet's sense of humor is wonderful. She had some problems with road construction that eventually cause her to close early for the season. We will visit several...More

Bet's is a local institution and rightly so. Fish (haddock) and chips are super. Beware that portions are huge so a half order may fit the bill. You can't go wrong here.
