When you're doing something right, you don't change a darn thing! Thank goodness that's Bet's Fish Fry. Perfectly fried fresh fish and some amazing hand cut 'chips'. Add to that winning combo some of the best tarter sauce you'll ever put in your mouth and you'll be screaming: "OH YEAH BABY"!! SO if you're in the state of Maine, I mean anywhere in the state, get your butts to Boothbay pronto. You're going to die and go to fishy heaven!!

We miss the great fish in New England so on vacation we stopped at Bet's again!! The tartar sauce was great too. Bet's is closed from 2 PM to 5 PM so time your visit appropriately

We stopped here after going to the botanical gardens - glad we did! The menu is fried fish and chips - and that's it. But the food is deliciously fresh and very plentiful - I think a half order is enough for two people. The outside seating is shaded with big umbrellas. Overall a highly enjoyable lunch!

Traditional family stop at annual Maine vacation. One order of fish and chips was lunch for 3 kids and I (wife was shopping). New picnic tables with umbrellas are pleasant to enjoy the food. Agreeing with other reviewer's favorable posts. Bet's does a consistent, good job. Interested if anyone ever gets the "free beer tomorrow". This year they have a small lemonade stand adjacent and it was a good complement to the fish and chips.

....And you get success. We've watched this little place grow over the years from a little shack to something of a destination. This is the perfect example of how to do one thing and do it well. We ordered a "half fish and chips" and it fed two of us. It was a nice slab of perfectly battered, fried fish and hand-cut fries. We got both sauces, the tartar and the dill and couldn't decide which we liked better. We got a little cup of ketchup, but those fries didn't need any help. I would definitely recommend this stop. The hours of operation are a little tricky though. Right in Boothbay town square. Some parking. Picnic tables out back. Food comes in old Pepsi 2-liter racks. Just toss your trash and stack your rack for the next lucky guest.
