Best priced Happy Hour in Lahaina, $2.00 Margarita's and $3.00 Mai Tais plus discounted Appitizers make this a must stop when you are in Lahaina. Betty's sits right on the beach ocean front at 505 Front St. They also have a lobster night and prime rib night.

Drove from Kihei to eat here after reading some reviews on TA. Arrived about 8:30 and the place was empty. Partly because it's kind of hidden as you have to walk through the Shops at 505 to get there. Deco was Kitchy Hawaiian which was what I wanted to see. It might not be for everyone but I like it...

We want to Betty's on a Wednesday so we could have their lobster special. We also of course wanted to see the neighboring luau (which they are very transparent about). We arrived at 5.45pm to make sure we got a table. The luau does not start until 7pm, but they were ok with us lingering over cocktails and appetizers to... More

We were the only people at the restaurant around 5pm on a Sunday. Our server offered us a round of happy hour drinks (finished at 5) so that was nice, and the maitais were delicious. Food was fast and fresh, good portions for price. Server was lovely, friendly and helpful. View of the ocean from the balcony. We will surely... More

Went to Betty's for lunch. Sat at a table over looking the ocean. They have a lobster special on Wednesday nights ($16.95) but we are not going to be in Maui on Wednesday and our grand daughter wanted some lobster so we had it for lunch (at the regular price). They have a nice variety menu with pupu's, salads, sandwiches,... More

Maybe it's because of a change in ownership but sadly Betty's can no longer hold its place as my favourite bar on Front St. The Margaritas were weak even though we ordered a compulsory double shot and the mix was 'soapy'. Lobster night remains good value. But if you are looking for Margaritas look elsewhere.

This was a fun place to visit for dinner on a Wed night. They have a "Maine Lobster" raised in Hawaii special for the night. It's a good meal - not too big - you get the lobster and one side. You do have to do the work and get the lobster meat out, but they give you the cracking... More

We were told by a waitress at Aloha Mixed Plate to go to Betty's for dinner and see the Feast of Lele for free behind Betty's. We went about 7:00 pm at the start of the feast, we sat in a table right behind the Luau in Betty's restaurant and could watch the whole show for free. Betty's even turns... More
