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. Guests can also enjoy Oyster Happy Hour during limited hours Monday through Friday.

    We love Beetlecat. There is something about a Ford Fry restaurant that just "gets it right" consistently. The service team all the way to Samantha, manager, are always working together to make the customer feel treated like they are special guests. Our evening marked a special birthday and CiCi went well beyond anything we could have dreamed of to make our night extraordinary. Y'all when you meet these folks who are working long hours and dealing with the same uncertainties that we are and then they put their servant hearts into gear it creates a bond. And when we left we were hugging Cici for her incredibly thoughtful and professional service. And the food was delicious. Again- delicious, timely, and creative. All went with the Beetlecat brand theme and that is part of what makes the evening special. Happy hour oysters were yummy and the lobster roll and burger were very sharable.

    I did not have a good experience. The two servers at the door didn’t want my table so they ignored me for a long time. A third server finally showed up and by that time I was ready to order. Unfortunately, the weird timing caused my food to come out before my oysters. She was apologetic, but ultimately rushed me out the door. She took my plates and food while I still had a full alcoholic drink. I was completely polite the whole time so I’m not sure why I was being treated badly other than the obvious. It really ruined the food for me. Too bad, I had a great time on my other visits.

    This is my new favorite place! Sad it’s taken me seven years to get here but I look forward to making up for lost time. Inventive and flavorful food. The donuts are to live for! Get one of each and come back next week to taste test again. Always bring a friend. Strawberry donut was my fav. Literally felt like my belly smiled. Everyone’s plate looks scrumptious — no complaints at this table. Special shout out to the Fry Bread. Trust me, just get your own, don’t test your relationships at the table. This is so light, crunchy and savory that the extremely selfish person in you will emerge. It’s ok. Order another. Special special shout out to the staff who all made us feel at home, but many 💗💗 to TK in particular who made the place feel like the one where you want every body to know your name. We will all be back.

    Always love BeetleCat! Service was impeccable! A bit shocked by the price increases compared to last year. Peel and eat shrimp, lobster roll, salmon poké, oysters, were all excellent! Washed it down with a good value Malbec (go for the bottle, you’ll drink it)! Dining room was a bit warm!

    Hubby and I frequent BeetleCat for our local, late night date excursions. It’s always such a vibe, the food and service are consistent and we still believe they have the best oysters we’ve tasted to date. The cocktails are so perfectly curated and the staff is efficient and friendly. It’s still our go-to spot for a quick date night. This I visit we did the our favorite, the Collar with a side of Coconut fried rice. And also the Baked flounder! Absolutely loved everything! It’s always a win for us at BeetleCat!

    Make sure you know that the special plateaux platters are raw! We ordered the $155 platter and when they brought out 18 raw oysters, we kindly asked them to steam them. The waiter made me feel like I was stupid for not knowing something that wasn’t clearly stated on the menu. The waiter didn’t even say it was a raw dish. Now why the hell would I think it was raw? I personally would not pay that much for raw oysters and the waiter and his manager questioning my intelligence did not sit well with me either. The food was overly seasoned as well.

    I really like Bettlecat. We sat outside and the food was very good. Unfortunately my daughter drew the unlucky straw and got sick off the Oysters. I had oysters with her and was fine, so we figure some percentage of the ones we shared were bad. I know it is part of eating raw food.

    Food was great, but service was awful. It took like 20 minutes for the server to initially come over. Drinks took forever, and at the end of the meal the waiter never came back. I went to the hostess and asked for some help, eventually. They were really nice and gave us a free dessert for the wait, but they should really work out the number of waiters they have it timing of everything. It was crazy how long we waited for service throughout the meal.

    The food and service were great. Definitely good vibes but I wish there were some more vegetarian options. I had the kale salad and it was delicious and tender but I usually like to pair a salad with a starch/grain or bean.

    The service started off poorly b it after talking with the hostess she helped get things back on track. The big disappointment was the mussels. The sauce was great but the mussels were so over steamed that most of the mussel was melted to the side of the clam. The fries were amazing. We worked with the waitress and bartender to find a good rec on a bottle of wine that was fantastic. The ambiance is great. I’d try it again and hope this experience was an off night for all parties.
