Seafood
Featuring raw oysters and fresh seafood with international influences from executive chef Andrew Isabella, BeetleCat is a trendy restaurant and bar in Atlanta’s Inman Park neighborhood. The menu transports you to the New England coast at the upstairs dining room and oyster bar, while the downstairs Den lends itself to a 70s surf shack. Enjoy fresh air on one of the two patios, both upstairs and downstairs. BeetleCat is open nightly for dinner and offers brunch in the Den on Saturdays and Sundays. Enjoy Oyster Happy Hour all night on Mondays and during limited hours Tuesday through Friday, or stop in for Late Night on Friday and Saturday for a special late night menu and a live DJ.

wonderful food and atmosphere, ask for Kyle he is the best! Hoping to go back soon with more people, outdoor patio downstairs is big enough to accommodate two groups of 6 potentially split into two tables of 6 close by to each other !! i would call and reserve ahead tho!!

Beetle is one of my go-to spots! I love so many things on the menu. Service can vary with the time it takes someone to take your order, etc. However, my recent waiter, Russell, was superb! His energy and enthusiasm were awesome.

Food: The food is always fantastic! It will never disappoint. The new addition of giving cookies with the bill is a super plus :)

The service, ambiance, and mostly importantly the food was fantastic! Do yourself a favor and get the salt and pepper squid and green beans. The squid must be sprinkled with fairy dust because we have never tasted any so good and the green beans had such a great taste. Thanks for a wonderful birthday experience!

We had a great server in Cam.
Our meal started with a Brut Champagne from Reims France. Always ask for their winelist it is filled with gems!
We started with Oysters, a must when at Beetlecat. Our main was their newest edition Wahoo, which was cooked to perfection accompanied by their truffle mashed potatoes. Unfortunately the mashed potatoes were served lukewarm and they quickly corrected it although the second time around the serving was rather small.
All in all it was a great meal!

Our server was fantastic, but we had to wait 20 minutes past our reserved time just to sit where we requested not to (requested indoor seating in the reservation). The oysters were also not rinsed out properly, as several has shards of shell in them.

Service was super slow despite the restaurant not being overly crowded. We saw our server a total of 5 times. He took our drink order, dropped those off, took the food order, dropped it off and then when we got the check. Our food was great.

Had a wonderful experience here. It's casual and may not be the best date spot if you are looking for something intimate and quiet (although it was fine for ours), the food was incredible, and while not every cocktail we had was great they were all good. If you're there for oysters, they have a better selection, in my opinion, than the Optimist, and it's also a good bit less 'stiff' or 'stuffy' which is always more fun to me. The cucumber salad, tuna tartare and all of the dozen oysters we tried were fantastic. There was only one drink I didn't love of my three cocktails and a prosecco, and my girlfriend had different cocktails but also had one out if her three that didn't knock her socks off. The service was fantastic, a cheerful and knowledgeable guy who made the experience more fun and inviting. Will definitely be back here more often.

The best way I can describe the waiter is frantic and overbearing. I saw no extra precautions cleaning between tables to prevent COVID. Only three out of the twelve baked oysters were edible. The $30 lobster roll was bland and the sweet potato side chips were too salty and Reminded me of chips from the bottom of the bag (crumbled). The salty dog cocktail was good. Won’t be back.

Beetlecat is always fantastic. Every single dish has been awesome. Highlights that we enjoy are certainly the kale salad, baked oysters, salmon entree and the moqeca stew. The last three visits in the last three weeks have been truly a delight.
I have to hand it to the restaurant as well for service. Impeccable!
From the hostess and wait staff that remember my family and say hello and ask how we liked the last visit which means so much. The entire staff is so well trained and extremely personable. The management staff cares about each diners experience especially when all the managers have inquired with us on how everything is food wise to dropping off food and being so cordial about our food choices and explaining details behind any dish.
You can tell this is a place where you want to come back for that personalized touch with everything they do.
A true gem that will continue to get our business.

Server was confused and disorganized. Didn't course out the meal properly. Held onto our order instead of coursing and firing. Had to be told after waiting 45 minutes that the burger was sold out. Got the drink order wrong to start. Had dirty dishes sit on the table too long as other food was hitting the table.

Food was good but not good enough to deal with poor service.

I was very excited to finally try this restaurant, especially after all of the great reviews. One of my friends and I went for brunch, and we ordered the red snapper and champagne brunch to drink. We could not taste any alcohol at all, and we ordered the Nashville Hot Glazed chicken sandwich as well as the Avocado Toast with Blue crab....both dishes were lack of seasoning, and tasted very bland. For the price we paid, it was a complete disappointment. The location, and restaurant itself was nice. The service started out good, but then, our waitress went missing after placing our orders. I probably won't be back.

We celebrated my husban’s birthday for dinner on Saturday night. Food was delicious, service was just ok. I went the night before for girl’s night out and had the most amazing service. I had the same expectation but I understand the server makes the dining experience good or great. Either way, it did not take away from the overall evening. Conch fritters, fried rice and oysters were superb! Can’t wait to go back!
