We got 2 half portions but could have easily shared one half portion! The fish was fried but not heavy, a nice coating with good fries. Fun outdoor seating. Great place. Much more "soul" than most of Boothbay which seemed very touristy.

We ate at several restaurants while in Boothbay ME. This was by far our favorite. The great food trumped the location ( many restaurants boast water views etc) whereas Bet's is near an intersection. We didn't wait long for our order and they just do...More
