Very good fried fish, shrimp and clam strips. Nothing fancy, just tasty and filling. Love the hush puppies, but second time they have had no honey butter which makes them complete. Also disappointed they had no oysters. Seems others in area having no problem getting. Music too loud and not in keeping with age group of visitors. Will visit again... More

Jerrald is a great chef. Always check out the special s of the day. The wait staff is friendly. When your done be sure to hit the bar and ask for a Mike special.

I want my seafood "fried" or I don't want it at all and Betty's has the best oysters and scallops I have ever had in any restaurant! The staff is always very nice and attentive. I have been going there for years and have never had a bad experience with the staff and the food is always just the way... More

On the water is right. Intracoastal waterway here you can enjoy some good food and have a good view of the passing fishing boats. the service here is also good. but if like sweet tea then you order a soda instead not sweet and very little tea flavor.

So, I should start with directions... While heading to Holden Beach. Do not turn at the light (At Wings). Go through. Veer to the Right (First road), Go almost to the end. Turn Left onto the last road on the Left. Betty's will be by the water on the Right. They open at 4:30pm. Now the Review... The food was... More

When friends visit us at our vacation home at Holden, Betty's is always a choice to show off a good seafood meal on the waterfront. Tonight, our group of nine tried a variety of offerings from the menu, & none were disappointed! Servings could be a little more plentiful, but everything tasted great. Still high on our list!

The location of this restaurant is good, but beyond that, it's all down hill. If you want fried, greasy, very overpriced food served on a table that looks like it was set for a kid's birthday party (complete with folding chairs), then this is the place for you.

There were 10 of us, ranging three months to four grandparents. Our food was good, and the choices varied, which mattered to us. The staff was helpful and pleasant (especially our waitress, Jasmine), even after we moved outside from our table inside, got swarmed by bugs, and immediately moved back to our original table. We will go back.
