Featuring raw oysters and fresh seafood with international influences from executive chef Eddie Barrett, 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.

    This was my first time dining in The Den and it was such a cool vibe; we really enjoyed ourselves. The food was great, I requested a special drink and AJ the bartender made it perfectly. Our server Ty was attentive and offered great suggestions, which were delicious!

    They have seriously gone down in service and portions. Unfortunately prices have stayed the same. Just not the experience I’m used to with them and it was really disappointing. If you’re actually hungry and want to get what you pay for, try somewhere else. The lobster roll is basically a kids meal btw.

    We came to celebrate birthdays. We had an reservation but was asked to wait about 20 mins until another party that had been seated for over 2 hours cleared out. They ended up putting together other tables. Our waitress TK was absolutely wonderful! She was attentive, professional and engaging. The food was ok. Everyone had differing options on their entree. The kale salad was bomb. The mahi mahi was over cooked. The maquia seafood was perfection.

    It was fantastic! The food was absolutely incredible. We both got lobster rolls. And since we were celebrating a special occasion, Beetlecat gave us two congratulatory cards and a donut!!! I think it was the most delicious maple bacon donut ever tasted. We will definitely be coming back for brunch as there were other menu options that we want to try. We will also come back for dinner to try the oysters and other items. 10/10 experience and 10/10 food!

    Best oysters I’ve ever had. We loved the jaw bone of the fish. How did they make that so good? And the crew is more than friendly, they are personable. They’re the kind of people you want to say “want to hang with us?”

    We arrived on time and waited 30 minutes till we got our table and then we were sat at a community table until a 2 top opened up. Service was good after that but the food was good not great. Burger was the best part which is saying something since this is a seafood restaurant.

    We have dined at Beetelcat a few times, but this is the first time downstairs in "The Den". It had a fun 60s theme. When I mentioned an allergy to coconut, the kitchen changes up the friend rice to accommodate me. Everything looked great, and it tasted even better!

    Our server was great but the prices were insane. $40 for a lobster roll? I get that it’s downtown but a fresh lobster roll in Maine isn’t that much and is so much better! And $3.50 for one oyster? Come on. We are happy to pay if something is worth it but this wasn’t.

    Our server, Tyree, was excellent! He was so fun and attentive. The food was awesome. The hostess was so kind and let us choose the best table that would be warm and not too loud for my 87yo grandma. Excellent hospitality all around. Everyone enjoyed dinner. The pan bread, lobster roll and key lime dessert were my favorites. Cocktails were excellent. Grandma loved the Branzino.

    BeetlecatResponded on December 28, 2022This is amazing to see since Tyree is still in training! We're so glad you had an amazing experience and that Grandma was able to come along. See you again soon.

    Food egregiously expensive for quantity. Mahi Mahi $27,small portion, and with nothing else, not even a small side of vegetable. Chowder too salty to eat great place for cocktails, food not so much. Dissappointing for spending $400 to go out to eat.

    Service is a little slow. The food is excellent. Known for their lobster roll which is delicious and get their oysters too (it’s so good). The staff is professional and welcoming. Besides service being slow, I will be going back to Beetlecat for sure. Highly recommend.

    Celebrating a birthday we requested a special table. We waited 20 mins past our reservations to be seated downstairs facing a very busy service area and outdoor exit. Once seated it took more than 10 mins to be acknowledged and then service was very haphazard. Food was excellent but expect more from such an establishment.

    The restaurant was not busy at all when we arrived 3 mins before our reservation . However, all the servers were in a meeting so we had to wait almost 30 mins before we were seated. One of the two servers that weren’t in the meeting helped us with our drinks and eventually took our whole order. She was pleasant and helpful.

    Food was great but took us 10 minutes to get greeted. Think the server was overwhelmed by all the tables she had but she didn’t come to check on us. When she did come back to the table, she seemed quite annoyed by everything we asked for, I.e. more cocktail sauce and another oyster menu. Overall experience was okay, just think the server was overwhelmed and stressed, which led to a pretty crappy level of customer service.

    Our server, Caitlyn, went over and above for a last-minute retirement celebration dinner for my husband. We were a 4-top for dinner with no special instructions, and she was attentive and responsive throughout dinner. When my husband left the table near the end of our meal, we took the oppty to ask if she could put a "happy retirement" candle in any dessert and bring it out. She brought out EVERY dessert with a card signed by Beetlecat staff that said "happy retirement", a coozie and a keychain! super sweet and very much appreciated!!! Food was great - we had the Branzino, the day-boat fish stew, fry bread, tuna crudo and a seafood tower. All were GREAT! Thank you Beetlecat with a special shout-out to Caitlyn!
