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.

First Sunday they were back to serving brunch and while they didn't have a complete brunch menu, they had a lot of variety and options. Tables were spread apart and reservations encouraged. All the staff wore masks.

Food was delicious as were the drinks. Staff was on point and just really nice. Manager came around and checked on everyone.

This was our first time at Beetlecat and based how they handled themselves...we can't wait to return!

Brunchworthy! Love the doughnuts and cocktail list. Nothing extravagant and a lovely place to dine.

We went for the Donut Brunch. The Apple Fritters were AMAZING, as well as the white chocolate/raspberry, ODB and my husband found the donut with pork floss interesting as well. The portion sizes for the entrees was ample and they had tasty brunch cocktails. We definitely want to go back again for dinner in the future. Overall it was very enjoyable and a wonderful break from being on lockdown for the last couple of months!

We heard good things about beetlecat, and decided to try for brunch. I don’t know if they were “off their game” because they aren’t used to working in the morning or what, but the service was terrible. I left 2 stars for service because our server wasn’t rude, just non existent and not knowledge at all about their menu. She had to “check on” a couple of basic things we asked in reference to the menu, disappearing for 10 minutes before returning with an answer. Never checked on us to make sure food was good, didn’t even drop off the food or clear us. I was kind of surprised to see someone with such little knowledge of the restaurant and menu being thrown on the floor. Even basic practices of service, especially in a renowned restaurant, were lacking such as making sure we had water and enjoyed everything and didn’t need anything...? It seems that this problem stems from management, as the manager did not even know what she was putting down in front of us and misspoke our orders. Maybe an honest mistake, but she seemed flippant and clueless as she wandered around the restaurant back waiting. We were offered other people’s food twice. It was just an absolute mess. With that said, food was great, not over the top, but we enjoyed it. Good flavor and enough spice for us spice-loving folks. We had the catfish, the chorizo hash, and 4 donuts.

Wonderful place to eat. My wife and I came here on our first date, and we loved it ever since. The Lobster Roll were phenomenal and everything on the menu was great.

It was our first time at Beetlecat during a visit from Los Angeles and we will certainly be back. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding! We sat downstairs on a Monday which was quiet. Our server, Cam was a rockstar! We were so impressed with his menu knowledge and professionalism. When he told us he was relatively new to the restaurant, we couldn't believe it. He was accompanied by a trainee was lovely too. We ordered the crab fried rice, lobster roll, leeks, salmon poke, kale salad and green beans. Our favorites were the lobster roll, kale salad and leeks.

We had high hopes for Beetlecat. Two people ordered the collard (fish cheeks) and it was horrible -- the entire head of the fish instead of just the cheeks and the fish tasted old. Two people ordered the short rib lo mein and it was sickenly sweet. The server was reluctant to bring new silver and napkins, among other things. It was a very disappointing experience -- a night where you're just glad you're with friends who could laugh it off.

celebrated our anniversary, and they made it really special! recommend for a special occasion. food was brought out quickly which was nice, but would have liked just a little more spacing between apps and entree because the table was small and didn't fit everything easily.
