Best Fish Ever

Bet's serves 2 things: fried fish that's fresh caught that day and chips. There is no better fried fish, anywhere, and I don't even love fish! Do not miss Bet's when you are in the Boothbay Harbor area.

Yummy, yummy, yummy!!! Perfectly fried fish and chips that come with awesome sauces. You can feed a family of six for $27 plus the cost of drinks. We cannot stop talking about this meal and I keep getting congratulated on making the whole group stop because I wanted fish. One of my favorite meals during a week in Maine.

Bet's is a must stop during our annual visits to the Boothbay Harbor area. Simple, roadside shack, eat outside, but fresh, fresh fish, nothing but fish and chips. We ordered two 1/2 portion Fish and Chips ($9.00) for lunch and it was more than enough for our lunch that day and a very ample fish sandwich the day following. There... More

Bet's has amazing fried fish. No Lobster... she sells fish! The portions are huge and the dill sauce is a MUST TRY. This is perfect for a mid afternoon lunch, but be prepared, you will not be hungry for a while after. Seating is at picnic tables outside... when the food is this good - who needs walls?

Several locals in town recommended Bet's for lunch, so we opted to try it during our day trip to Boothbay. It lived up to the hype and service was fast and very friendly! The menu is basically two items-fish and fries. The two of us split an order and it was more than enough for two of us...a third person... More

I am usually not into fried foods of any sort, but this was totally worth every delectable calorie! They serve only fish and chips and whoopie pies, so if you want something fancy, go elsewhere. This is the real Maine--great service with a smile, too. We each got an order but could have shared a half-order because it was so... More

Our first time and we shared a 1/2 Fish and Chips Bowl. The fish was delicious and I wished I had had a bit more. We will be back. Good to eat it hot, so even if it is raining plan to eat it in the car!! Really wonderful fish and sauces were great, too.

Every time we come to Boothbay, a stop at Betts is on the agenda! We get one fish and chips dinner for two of us and it is plenty, with enough left over foe a third person. She ably sells fish fry and fried fish sandwiches and fries. She specializes in what she sells and it is always delicious!

Bets is the real deal when it comes to her fried fish and fresh cut French fries. Pure heaven when you order the freshest fish dish you'll ever have. During our annual fall Boothbay getaways-(her fish shack is only minutes away from our Sawyers Island rental), we return several times before she closes for the season. Missing out on her... More
