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

Great service and food. Went in the early evening and had a great view of "Feast of Lele" which is a Luau that leases spaces just in back of Betty's. Had the advantage of having a great seat while enjoying a much less expensive meal. This restaurant does fine on its own but the view of the Luau entertainment was... More

Located on the eastern end of Front Street, in the back of “The Shops of 505.” near the Lahaina Shores Condo complex is Betty’s. It is a diamond in the rough. It has a gorgeous view of the ocean. We were there for Happy Hour for $2 Margarita and Mai Tai. If you upped the price for $2 more, you... More

Went to watch a free luau and I was really surprised how well you could view it. We sat approximately 10 feet from the luau's paying customers and had a great view! I had low expectations for the food but my blackened ono caesar salad was excellent!

I don't like giving bad reviews but there is nothing good about the food here. I've read alot of the reviews on here and for the people who say the food is good I don't know what your talking about. The quality of the food is like a Dennys restaurant. They say they have "Lobster Wednesday" well I guess you... More

The food was good - eggs, toast, pancakes. Service was good though not exceptional. Great ocean view. Terrible coffee

Small and unpretentious place with great food. The cuisine was local and very good. Staff was helpful and not overcrowded on a weekday. If you time it right, and you get an outside seat you can watch the adjoining luau show without the cost or buffet.

This is a small place, right on the beach. We went on Wednesday (Lobster special $16.95) Food was very good, service excellent. You can watch The Feast of the LeLe from your table without paying to attend!!! Everything about this place is a win. Recommend!!!
