“Wonderful Fried Haddock”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

We tried this restaurant for lunch for the first time. The picnic table seating is all outdoors.The haddock was very fresh as it had been caught the same morning. We ordered a 1/2 portion of fish and fries which was more than enough for 2 people. The food was freshly prepared and served expeditiously. We were offered homemade tartar and dill mayonnaise. Both were excellent condiments for the fish. The fish was moist and delicious. The fries were thin and crispy. For the money it was a very good experience.

“It took me 4 years to get here! Worth it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

We've been travelling to BBH and hadn't had a chance to hit Bet's. It was so good, we went twice. For a fish and chips order, you get 2 large fillets of haddock - pretty much a whole fish. the batter is crispy good. Fries were a little on the hit or miss side. They are shoe string type and the first try they were delicious and crisp. On the second visit, they were over done. But both times, the fish was perfect. Definitely worth a stop.

“Delicious fish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

This place always delights with wonderful, massive haddock filets. I've found that half a bowl of fish is actually enough food for two people. She has picnic tables near her stand or you can drive to a nearby water view.

“Great fish and setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

May be the best fried fish I've had. Chat with Bet if you can, she is quite a character. Get there early for lunch because once the fish is gone, they're closed!

“Moby Dick on a roll!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

OMG...first time there, we mistakenly ordered full size haddock sandwich and fries each..was enough for four people. And talk about good! Possibly the best fish fry I've ever had. Crispy on the outside and moist and perfectly cooked on the inside. Note....this is not the Ritz. It is al fresco dining adjacent to a charming village green, the site of many an arts and crafts festivals. If you love a good fish fry, this is the place.
