We love this spot. Our server, Cam, was helpful, welcoming, and genuinely excited to be there. It made the night that much better. And that burger? Damn! That surprised me! Bonafide.

Over all, the experience was great for a last minute move. Service was amazing, and food was delicious!

Although next time I will make reservation more in advance so I get a table inside and on a day that is less busy; for a more quiet setting.

Amazing food, recommend to anyone that is visint the ATL area. Tried many different items. Standouts were the salmon, green beans, and the chef's baked oysters. Nothing on the menu was bad.

The service was fantastic as was the food. Went fairly early to avoid a crowd and felt safe and distanced on the back patio, and warm due to the heaters. Started to get a little crowded later (7:30).

The restaurant was cold and a little uncomfortable. The mocqueca dish was sup par due to being sour tasting. The service was spotty. The other food was good especially the crudo!

Brought my mom who was in from out of town and were blown away, as always. My husband and I literally bring every visitor we have to Beetlecat and are consistently impressed with the service, quality of food, level of hospitality, intentionality in the details, and the vibe. We are so lucky to call this a neighborhood spot and can't wait for our next meal here!

This was our first visit though I have always known about the restaurant. I have been reluctant to dine out in the age of Covid but was convinced due to the option of outside dining. We made a reservation and we were immediately seated outside with heated lamps to take the city chill away. We were given a corner table that was far away from others but allowed us to be spectators. The wait staff was professional but best of all informative and friendly. They made sure to keep themselves and patrons safe and was helpful in making the decision on what to order. The food was enjoyable, hot and fresh. I do not know why this has not been one of my normal spots prior to Covid, but I can assure you it will be in the future. I plan to visit for an evening event as I hear the salmon is quite tasty. Beetlecat has joined my list of favorite Inman Park spots. I am singing its praises to friends just as friends have to me.

Brought my parents for dinner. Loved it. We had oysters, fry bread, fried squid, dumplings, and moqueca stew- I would order every single thing again. It was fabulous. Great service.

Another great experience on our date, there was clearly a new hire who was throwing service off a bit, but still a great visit. The shrimp in the shrimp cocktail were slightly overcooked and the cocktails were slightly less impressive than last visits (same drinks just not as good) but for an off night it was still well worth the money!

Donuts delish and my lobster roll was yummy, but my companion was underwhelmed. We also waited a long time to order and for drinks to come out, though the server was very friendly. I think we probably prefer the downstairs vibe of the lounge...but hey, covid...happier times ahead, Lord willing!!

The food was amazing and adequately priced. The place did not seem to be really busy but it took a while to get all of the food to the table. The server seem to disappear for longer increments of time as our meal progressed. I would still go back.

Love this restaurant. We live in North Carolina and when we are in the mood for lobster we drive all the way to Atlanta to come here. (It helps our friends live fairly close and love the restaurant as a well so killing two birds with one stone lol)
Our waiter Shannon is amazing and we always have her.
She has always given us the BEST experience. It’s nice to see a familiar face when we arrive. Every time is better than the last. The brunch is our favorite by far.

My wife and I loved every moment. It was our service that was top tier. Shannon was our waitress and she tended to us like guests in her home. It was very warming.
I might make this a monthly move.
Thank you Shannon if your reading this!

We go for the oysters. There's always a great selection, East & West Coast & Canada, and the pricing is totally reasonable. If you want to try a bunch of things definitely go for snacks. The kimchi mussels were new to us this last time and they were amazing. The bread in the dish was awesome and spicy but no too kimchi-ish. Next time we are definitely going to try the Lobster Roll.
