In spite of the poor reviews, we went here due to lack of options and time constraint with train travel. We both had the tuna sandwich which was only marginal - dry with a scant amount. Couple with cold fries, it was less than optimal....On the other hand, the waitress was delightfulMore

We waited more than an hour for our food. My chicken burger fell apart. The chicken was very thin and dried out. My husband’s meal was tasteless. Even after we finished eating, it took 20 minutes to be able to pay. They took our visa...to the back to run it through. Do not recommend. With so many restaurants around, why go to a subpar restaurant?More

A unique venue, with a unique location. Things have changed since the resorts went in, but a reliable, sensible choice for dinner or drinks. A taste of the real Oceanside. Interior decor is fun, and there are options for patio dining, and rooftop entertainment. Just...like the feeling here. Food is always terrific, drinks rate very high as well.More

Fish & chips were really good. But happy hour @3 pm they are half off. Good margaritas & nice beer selection too. Bartenders were very friendly, definitely will go back & try something else! Live music upstairs on Friday 🤗

6 of us ate up and out on the roof terrace, Food and drinks were Outstanding. Some had Burgers, shrimp, Fish n Chips and the Lettuce wedges were Huge fyi. The Hit was the Chowder. Amazing !!! Tuna melt looked great online but was a...let down..It was OK but not a home run. Very clean rest rooms. It was fun. Looks like downstairs has better service as you get wait staff to serve you. On the roof you order at the Bar and they deliver to your number on table flag. The roof is nice and there still are a few tables with an ocean view.More

Lobster taco , grilled shrimp taco and fried cod taco - The "homemade" corn tortillas were soggy and tough - lobster was 2 small pieces about a teaspoon each, - the shrimp was tasteless and did not look grilled, the fried cod was very good...but the sauce on all 3 was mayonaisy, no spice and no flavor. I picked the seafood out and left the rest for the garbage. The beer was good and cold, so go for a drink and walk up the street for dinner.More

Food is okay. Services are good. No reservation for rooftop, but a whole section reserved for manager's friends.

Overrated and over priced. Disappointed with the tasteless tacos, stale chips and overpriced food. Not recommend for foodies. The flourless cake was good, but nothing fancy. Hope they add some better flavours and update the menu.

The fish and chips, which should be excellent, was less than mediocre. Fish tacos were OK. They could do so much better at the prices they charge!

We ordered fish and chips with an extra order of fish. Good idea, as the amount of fries served is overwhelming! However, our fish was quite greasy and the amount of grease in our to-go box was excessive. For the prices they charge, a little...spot of coleslaw would have ben a very nice extra. Maybe cut back on the ton-and-a-half of fries? Our first 2 fish pieces were normally sized but the extra add-on pieces (the price was not cheaper, by the way) were quite skimpy. Not sure where to go in Oceanside for really good fish and chips (Tin Fish was nothing to recommend) but I would pass on Hello Betty next visit.More

Get the feel of being outside at this comfortable, casual bar/restaurant. Great service and delicious food. Variety for every for the carnivores to herbivores in your party. Save room for dessert!
