Well worth the 10 minute wait for a table. Fabulous, clean and neat restaurant. Nicely decorated with wall paintings. Food was yummy, great onion rings, nice ocean view. Cheeseburgers are the BEST!

A really fun restaurant...if you love the 50's...décor, music and ambiance from that decade. We love it. Arthur's Famous Fried Shrimp is the best I've ever eaten! It is dusted with the thinnest of thin coatings and perfectly fried so it is sweet, juicy and tender. YUM!! Everything is homemade....even the applesauce! You may have to wait but it is... More

Betty's has great food but it is a little pricey, not bad if it's just the two of you. The atmosphere is good and right across from the ocean! Betty is really friendly as are all of the servers.

Homey great simple food. Best shrimp I've ever had and I've lived in Florida most of my life. Located right across the street from the ocean - come in the daytime to enjoy the view.

at 52 years of age, one would think that I would possibly consider myself an AARP member - NOT ME! I travel the globe and have a grand time. That said, if you are ready for tasteless bland food....Betty's is your place. Waitresses are straight out of the 1950's - don't get the fish of the day - it seems... More

Food is fabulous. Considering we are transplants from New England long ago, Betty makes us feel like we are eating at "home" the best NE seafood around, including whole belly clams and clam rolls. Many other wonderful choices from pasta, chicken etc. family friendly, plenty of parking and a view of the ocean.

I live in Ormond, and Betty's is our "go to" place for lunch. It's very casual, reasonable, and the food and service are consistently very good.

Betty's has the best fried shrimp in the area, by far. Their batter is light and the shrimp are always fresh and large. They also have great homemade desserts. Coconut cream pie is our favorite.
