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.

Our family has been to Holden Beach for over twenty years and have probably been to Betty's almost every year. Sadly, the premises and the value seem to be in decline. As others noted, the hush puppies are still great! Many entrees, however, seem greatly overpriced for what you get. As an example, the catch-of-the-day sandwich was two small pieces... More

Never disappointed with a meal from Betty's! Fried shrimp - yumm! Best seafood around Holden Beach whether you dine in or order for pick up.

The food was terrible. I paid $16.99 for fish and shrimp. I got a child size plate with one little piece of fish and about 10 little shrimp. Neither were good. The best tasting thing I got was the baked potato. You could get better seafood at Captain D's.

Been several years since we last ate at Betty's. Back then had to wait in line a half hour or so. ~5 cars in parking lot should have been our clue. Service was terrible, and food not much better. Fried shrimp ok - hard to mess that up. Wife had broiled shrimp & scallops that were tasteless. Service was so... More
