Betty's A1A Café in Ormond By The Sea, Florida

Betty's A1A Café in Ormond By The Sea, Florida


The restaurant filled up quickly Saturday night and stayed busy the entire time we were there.  My wife's 3 sisters and her brother are in town visiting from Weymouth & Brockton, Mass  (south of Boston).  We met them and their spouses for dinner at Betty's A1A Café in Ormond By The Sea, Florida.

Everyone said the food was excellent and the service was good.  We had a variety of entrees, from a seafood platter to steak to chicken fingers to Caesar salad with steak.

We had a great Saturday night dinner and then sat outside for a while chatting and taking in the ocean breeze.

Betty's A1A Café in Ormond By The Sea, Florida is a real nice restaurant and a good meeting place.
