The place was dead, and we wait at the host stand for 5 minutes and nobody is there. We go and track someone down and are seated a few minutes later. We then wait 15 minutes, and nobody comes to our table. Mind you there...were only maybe 3 other customers there at a time. The bartender and several other employees where just standing around talking, complaining about something. We finally got up and left. nobody said a word. Horrible lack of service!More

Good solid food. Food came out quick. We came for breakfast, so we got the Sunday Funday mojito & the Bahama Mama colada to start. Both excellent drinks. For food, to start, we shared the french toast, which wasn't bad, but wasn't spectacular. My wife...then had the breakfast sandwich, and I had the Messy Bessy. Both were good, and were huge portions. Took food in a go-to box because it was so much. Wasn't too busy either. Parking(paid) is in the lot across the street, or try to find free parking on the street. Service was good this day. 4 stars because neither the food nor service "wowed" us.More

They have whole lobsters for 27.95 on Wednesdays and Saturdays. You can't beat that deal! The only sad thing is, if you visited a long time ago as I did, be warned that the luau company finally got smart and moved the stage to the...opposite side so you can no longer get a free luau with your Betty's dinner. 4 stars because I wasn't completely wowed by the service.More

The lobster special on Wednesdays is well worth a visit. Lost a star only due to the waitress, who could not keep either her clothing nor her mask in place. Saw way more of her than we needed to see.

The setting and specials— we did a prime rib special— will keep this place in business. The barkeeeper also is nice BUT the waitress was unbelievable. I’m sorry we left her a tip. At one point, the first time we came in, I heard her...say ‘suck it up, buttercup’ about a neighboring table. The second time, I ordered fish tacos trying to find something I could eat. I’m undergoing chemo and it’s rather obvious. Anyway, the tacos were ultra-spicy for my tummy. She (red-haired, heavyset) came over and I said, these are really hot and I can’t eat them. My husband interrupted by saying, try, you ordered them. And Ms. Waitress grinned, “Better luck next time.” And walked away without offering anything even a I’m Sorry. I worked in a Tourist trap” in college and hated tourists BUT never let it show. She did not need to be mean. And, yes, there was no next time at Betty’s. Drinks were expensive (no surprise) and food was mediocre. Lots of better places 3-4 blocks away.More

6 of us ate breakfast, flavors were very good, generous portions, lots of options including vegetarian. Chilaquiles, veggie benedict, were both spwcial and well above average. Everything else was great also. I would love to try everything on future trips

Getting in for dinner around Front Street can be next to impossible without reservations, but Berry's doesn't take them. They seem to be a local secret, far in the back of 505 Front Street. The staff was very friendly and efficient. Seating with a view...of the beach. We had the nachos, definitely sharable. My husband had the Mango Cilantro Mahi, he really enjoyed it but felt there was too much rice. I had the pork tacos, tasted great,, but they fell apart. Decided on dessert to share,. had the Mud Pie, it has Mango sauce on it and the serving size could have fed at least 3 people. We made a good attempt at finishing it, but couldn't do it. Would definitely recommend for quick evening meal, get there before 6:30 unless you want to hear the Feast at Lele music, but not be able to see the show..More

This place has a great covered patio. We sat there and enjoyed the breeze and watched the two harp seals lazing on the beach. (They are a protected species, and their area was roped off so that people wouldn't bother them.) Friendly service, good beers...on tap, good mahi sandwich and mahi salad -- you can't go wrong here!More

Came for dinner here the first night we arrived because it was super close and convenient. Service was ok, pretty laid back, but hey it’s Hawaii and why be in a hurry is my thought. Food was ok, but nothing super memorable. Low light -...my super lowsy Mai Tai. Probably one of the worst mixed drinks I have had in my life. I guess when she asked me if I wanted to make it a double for $3 more I should have got the hint. Highlight - you get to watch the Feast at Lele Laua for free or at least the backstage part. I found it fascinating to watch all the dancers prepping before they went out onstage and can hear all the music. Sit it the far left corner and you can probably see the stage. Otherwise the overall experience was meh.More

Never again will I ever go to Betty’s. Service was horrible, waitress was rude, and food was gross, and there was hardly any customers in the place. From when we walked in the people acted and made us feel like they were inconvenienced that we...were there. I ordered nachos with no cheese and I was brought out a plate of chips with tomatoes. When I asked the waitress where the beans and rest of toppings she got an attitude and brought me back a bowl of beans so I had to ask for a second time for the rest of my nachos Ingredients and she once again was rude and then came back with the rest of the toppings and I had to assemble my nachos my self . Not worth the wait. Also we ordered the banana pancakes with bacon and sausage and everything but the sausage was burnt and dry. And then when we opened our silverware it was dirty and had food on it and when we told the waitress she did not apologize nor look surprised that it was dirty. Very not sanitary. I was super embarrassed that I brought my family to this place and I do not recommend this place at all.More

They do broadcast many sport events. Depending on the time the game will be airing. Perhaps you are best to call the restaurant.

I believe so, but I'm not sure. When my wife and I went there for the lobster dinner, we each ordered one so it was not an issue for us. You might want to check directly with the restaurant.
