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.

    Nice table for two on the balcony under an umbrella. Our server was great too! My lobster roll seemed smaller than previous visits, otherwise great!

    First time going to BeetleCat and we will definitely return. It took a bit to get service (it was a busy night and every restaurant is short staffed so we understood), but as soon as we received service we were well taken care of. Our server Ty was nothing short of amazing and made sure we were cared for as his own family. We’re big fans of Ford Fry, what he stands for, and what we brings to our city. This first time experience at another one of his restaurants solidified our support for all he does. Did I mention Ty was incredible?

    Very delicious as always! All the oysters are great, so are the spicy shrimp noodles (not that spicy), and wings. Each and every server + staff member is attentive and a pleasure to be waited on by. My only complaint ever is that happy hour is very literal—4-5 pm—so you have to order your oysters within that window.

    The service is always fantastic from hostess to signed check. I don't love the downstairs seating as much as upstairs, but still a good time. Our server Milo was the best. Friendly and efficient.

    Always a great experience, had their amazing lobster roll and brunch menu , oysters began at 3 pm and we couldn’t resist. They also had a selection of homemade donuts that were so cold we went with the Donkey Kong (taste like banana pudding ) with wafers on top.

    We had a fantastic meal. The lobster roll was great , the ceviche had great flavor . And ironically the cucumber in the ceviche was fantastic too - and I’m not one to ever get excited about eating cucumber. The seafood stew was delicious as was the brownie dessert. Our waiter was attentive and pleasant - overall a great experience for date night.

    The food and service were absolutely amazing!!! We entered through the back, which is decorated 70s theme which car is a little offguard since the pictures looked different, showing the front of the house which we did not even realize there was a front of the restaurant until we left in our Uber LOL. TK was outstanding! The second we sat down unsure of where we were, she just took control and made it a five star evening! I highly recommend you will not be disappointed

    This place is ok to grab a bite but not for a date . The food is ok, very good taste but quality of the ingredients poor. The mussels were slimy, the coconut rice and plantain flavor was good but the texture was mushy creating clusters and no much plantain was in the mixture. The ceviche was great . The red fish was fried, over cooked and had excessive brown meat (this can happen for different reasons) another example of poor quality ingredient. The wine my husband had was great, my cocktails wasn’t. Overall I wouldn’t go back the place but if you like oysters people around us were enjoying them very much .

    The food and atmosphere was great overall. However; we were very disappointed with the wings. I’m sure this was a mistake with the recipe but it had a very strong baking soda after taste. It was not edible, they did refund us on money. Our waiter was super nice. We will definitely come back and stay away from the wings.

    It was fine, nothing special. I ordered the flounder. You would think that a $36 fish entree would come with a side item but it didn’t, which was disappointing. There are plenty of other places in the area with more interesting menus for better value.
