Second time that I have been there and if what I eated was good, it was not fantastic. It is what I call comfort food, a taste that seems familiar to you. This time I eated their beef liver with bacon and it is what you can expect from such meal. My friends eated fish, one boiled and the other... More

We love to ride up the coast and go here. They have the best "New England" seafood around. Crispy Maine Lobster, full belly clams, broiled or fried Haddock! Betty was wonderful as she would come around and make sure all was great. Her children have taken over and are not as particular as Betty was, but they are trying.

Every time we go to the Daytona Beach area, we make it a priority to eat at Betty's on A1A. The atmosphere is a pleasant family style restaurant. Waitresses are always efficient and friendly. The food is excellent.

When in Ormond Beach, you have to eat seafood and key lime pie at Betty's. This trip I had the broiled cod and even though I'd rather have fried (trying to eat healthier), it was perfectly cooked. Hubby had chicken salad. ..it was okay. ..but who does that? Why would you order chicken salad when seafood is available? Service is... More

Great seafood!! About 5 miles North of The Maverick on A1A. Very reasonably priced and for a couple of bucks you can get a chowder as one of your sides, Would definitely go back!

Wonderful, casual atmosphere. Ordered onion rings as an appetizer and they were awesome. Freshly made, batter was very light and not greasy at all. Very tasty horseradish sauce with it. Nice mixed greens salad with house dressing and haddock fish was prepared wonderfully. Had the clam chowder which tasted great but was very soupy instead of a thick chowder. Couldn't... More

We have eaten at Betty's for years. When in town, we bring family & friends to this local spot. So many great choices on the menu, don't miss the burgers, fish and chips and salads. Betty was originally from New England, so the fried clams are the real deal.

Looked on Travel advisor for a recommendation for dinner and Betty's was right in our way home. This place looked nice from outside so why not. We were immediately sat, right by a window so we could look out at the ocean, greeted by a waitress who seemed like she has been there forever. We asked for her recommendation and... More
