Oysters are always top shelf from Beetlecat and any of the Ford Fry restaurants. Today’s were from Rhode Island. First time having the salmon poke bowl and Asparagus which were well quite flavorful and fresh. This has always been my favorite place in Atlanta to dine. Love the den downstairs for just cocktails and hanging out with friends

Everything we had was excellent - squid was delicate & very lightly battered, lobster rolls were best we’ve had in ages, fried bread app gets a thumbs up, too.

I love Beetlecat! The oysters are fantastic, they regularly trade out items on their menu and the share everything plates are great. You must get the lobster roll, and come in on the weekend for a donut brunch. One of my favorites in Atlanta

It was a nice brunch!!! The food was really good with small exception. The donuts advertised as what they were known for...while delicious & hot...they were super greasy. Left my tummy quite wonky unfortunately. Otherwise, the meal was super delicious and our server was very attentive and kind!!!!!

my girlfriend and i came here for a romantic dinner on friday night, and boy were we blown away! the service was AMAZING!! i was so impressed with how on top of everything our waitress was!! the food was literally the best seafood i’ve had in atlanta, without question! my ONLY small complaint is that when we made reservations it asks where in the restaurant you would like to be seated, and i asked for something cozy and romantic. when we got there she told us that it didn’t matter bc that was all first come first serve. so why bother even having it as an option when making the reservation? you might as well tell people no. or like when we got there, again she asked where we wanted to sit and then told us no both times (den and outside). other than, simply amazing

Had great oysters, a real value at happy hour prices of $1.00 each. However, Shrimp Sugo had no visible shrimp, just what appeared to be ground up bits of shrimp. I enjoy hot foods, but this was almost too hot for me to eat and the heat masked any flavor that the minced shrimp might have offered.

Wished they had a wider variety of fin fish. Good pleasant service.

This was the third Ford Fry restaurant that I’ve been to in Atlanta and sadly it was the first bad one in the bunch!! The peel and eat shrimp were cold and not very tasty, the food came out in an odd order and all of it was way to salty!! I won’t be returning to this restaurant.

We brought a friend and had bragged and bragged in the mussels and lobster rolls. We ordered TWO orders of mussels which took a little longer than usual. When they arrived they were cold with very little broth! Soooo disappointed. The server - on his own - took one off our bill. Lobster rolls were outstanding but I won’t order the mussels without reminding them that we want them HOT!

A great date-night restaurant. Food was excellent. We particularly liked the oysters, the Pico de Shrimpo and the Fried Green Beans. And it didn’t hurt that it was a beautiful summer evening, which meant that sitting outside was a great option. Will definitely be there again.

My husband and I had been several times just the two of us, but going with a group of friends really allowed us to try a little bit of everything and enjoy Beetlecat more than before! Everything was delicious and I’d say we tried about 10 different items from the menu, shared among 6. The guys had a couple dozen oysters, which are always great. Highly recommend, but even more so with a group so you can really try a little bit of everything.
