Again, Trip Advisor won out! We ordered a full order of the friend haddock and fries to share. ($18)...with our cold bottled water from the vending machine out back.. Lots of delicious tarter sauce and some cocktail sauce made our shared meal the absolute best!!! very very casual and clean and delicious while sitting on the picnic benches to the left and rear of Bet's Fry shack. Parking was where we could find it. THE BEST!!!!

The fish and fries are terrific. Be sure to only order a 1/2 portion as believe me that is all you will need.

Bet's is a local institution and rightly so. Fish (haddock) and chips are super. Beware that portions are huge so a half order may fit the bill. You can't go wrong here.

If you like fried fish, this is awesome. I got a fish sandwich and there is not way I could have eaten it all. The fish is lightly battered and not greasy at all. Casual place with picnic tables that is always packed. Really great value, but start with 1/2 order and that should be plenty for one person.

Let me start by saying 1/2 fish and chips is enough for 2 adults to share. Their portions are double of what regular places offer. The fish was fried perfectly and had enough flavor I don't have to use either the tartar or dill sauce, both of which were quite good. Of course this can be on the oily side but what do you except from a fried fish joint. I'd recommend this stop along the way to the botanical garden.
