find so annoying in restaurants, so we had to wait nearly an hour to be seated. The bartender was not friendly at all while we waited at the bar, but the drinks and crab chip dip were delicious. After we were seated, service was friendly but very slow (it would take 10-20 minutes each time I ordered something like a drink or asked for water or more napkins), though it's a bit understandable because of our large party. My fish tacos were good, but nothing special. My $8 whiskey and ginger ale was mostly ice. Though, my brownie sundae was GIGANTIC and easily shared with the whole table. All in all, it was good food and a good experience, but nothing too memorable....though I might still go back with a smaller group or as a couple to see if it's better.

Up on the roof......that's where it's all happening at Hello Betty these days. The view is delicious and so are the Pacificos.

Hello Betty has just opened up their second floor Oceanview lanai. Their official launch party was tonight with complimentary Pacifico beer and, for purchase, fresh mahi tacos. The taco was very pricey at six dollars a pop, however it did taste good.

Perfect indoor/outdoor place to grab a margarita in Oceanside one block from the beach.

The food was decent, service a bit slow, and the restaurant is pretty noisy if you are trying to have a nice visit. Location is great with views of the beach and an nice breeze blowing in through the windows.

The location of Hello Betty is amazing. You can enjoy a seat at the bar while looking at a row of palm trees and the ocean just beyond them. It can't get better than that. It's just a shame that the service there on multiple occasions has been terrible. I keep giving it a try because the location and food are spectacular. I have noticed major changes in the staff at my last outing there. Good job! Now I can enjoy a fish sandwich whenever I want to and not worry about the service! Mmmmm! Love that fish sandwich.

Love Hello Betty. Good view of the water from the bar area. They always say they have a wait though is the only negative, even when they have plenty of tables. Great food and drinks though!

Loved the Fish and Chips, but the California Halibut is the ticket. Once you've had the Halibut, nothing else on the menu will matter, even as good as the cod, tuna, and the mahi are.

Great vibe at this place. We didn't get any food, but the bartender was friendly and gave good suggestions. Good selection of local beers. The bathroom was also very clean and decorated nicely.
