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.

    Our experience was amazing as usual! The food was incredible - we tried some of the new items on the menu and they became some of my favorite dishes. Our server, Sophie, took very good care of us and we also got to chat with one of the managers, Cece, who was also incredibly nice! We will definitely be back soon:)

    Came down from Nashville for a mother daughter weekend. We had such an amazing experience here. The food was incredible, we had the mussles, lobster roll and fish and chips. The atmosphere on the lower level was so cozy and hip and the cocktails we delicious. Our waiter Kevin was so much fun and very helpful. We will definitely be back next time we are in town.

    My friend and I went for a Sunday brunch. The restaurant is really nice and we had excellent service. The donuts were the main thing we were excited to try and we were served three cold and stale tasting donuts. We were super let down. But they redeemed themselves with the actual entrees we ordered, the pork belly hash and the lobster roll!! The lobster roll was probably the best I’ve ever had before! So so yummy! And my friend also really enjoyed the hash. We would definitely come back again but maybe skip the donuts next time.

    While I will return to Beetlecat as the food was really good our service was totally lacking. So many reviews brag about the great service here but that was far from our experience. Had a 6:30 reservation on Halloween night which is generally a slow night for the business. We were seated inside and the dining room had maybe six tables with people at them. After about five minutes the hostess came back and poured us some water and said the server would be with us soon. At this point a couple of tables down from us that was seated after us was already being helped. Waiter finally appeared and took our drink and appetizer orders. The drinks and food came out pretty quickly, we ordered the baked oysters which were great. Waiter was again MIA. He finally came back and took our dinner order - I had Shrimp and rice which was very good. Hubby had fish and chips which he enjoyed. We wanted to order drinks when dinner arrived but again no waiter in site. Finally waved him down and went w/ wine and a beer. We decided to not order dessert or anything else to drink as honestly the waiter was never around. We will go back because the food was really outstanding and my husband loves raw oysters. Hopefully it was just an off night for good service.

    BeetleCat has really gone downhill. Let me say that I’m a huge fan of ford fry. Married my wife in one of his restaurant courtyards. Dined at BeetleCat easily 15 times. Oysters are still solid. Squid has been changed, it’s not the previous recipe - and the portion of actual squid is a joke. Mussels were taken off our check. Why? Because more than 10 were bad and all of them were overcooked. We sent it back almost immediately. The carrot dish was embarrassing. Just tasteless. The spicy noodles were consistent and delicious as ever. And the kids meals were devoured. Service was meh.
