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.

    I was pleasantly surprised! The whole experience was great. Our table was downstairs in the den. Cory was our server, I will ask for him when I go again. Everyone was very polite. We don’t eat oysters but plenty to eat other than that. We tried poke, squid, fish and chips, and lobster roll…all amazing!

    The food was really bland and left a lot to be desired. The service was really slow. The chargrilled oysters were the smallest that I have ever seen. Definitely not worth the price and I don't see myself returning.

    I chose you all for my birthday celebration because I KNEW you would deliver on the vibe, the food, the drinks, etc. I forgot our waitresses name, but we were in the lower patio on Monday 4-7pm. She was AMAZING, so please give her a raise!

    The donut brunch was great! We tried a few of the donuts and they were absolutely delicious, hot, and fresh. Unfortunately they were sold out of the lobster roll which was disappointing because we came for it specifically, but we instead had the blue crab omelette and it was tasty. The drinks were good and well crafted. The service was very good especially with it being a busy Sunday brunch. And we loved the patio seating. Overall we loved everything about Bettlecat and plan on returning. I definitely recommend it as a summer staple!

    The mussels were so delicious and tasty and my husband enjoyed the ceviche very much. The oysters were fresh and we really enjoyed having our date night at the Beetlecat. Book a table way in advance though to be able to get a spot.

    Came for date with another couple. Originally they sat us in a lower level which was real loud. The upstairs and downstairs have two totally different vibes. But we requested to move and got a new table within ten minutes. Our waiter was great. He gave great information on all the menu items. I personally didn’t like my meal but my wife liked hers. I was trying to be different and get something I was unfamiliar with, so that’s my fault. But overall it’s a nice restaurant. We came in around 6:30 and it was busy but the food came out really fast.

    Went for dinner based on a recommendation. Sat at the bar and had a great evening. Tried all of the fresh oysters, loved them all. Some more than others but so wonderful to taste the variations. Then had a lovely dish made with coconut milk, rice, chicken, and more. Absolutely delicious. A bottle of wine went great with it. Great service, knowledgeable staff.

    They say the donuts are their specialty but they tasted like dry biscuits with sugar and the lobster was a major disappointment. Over priced and not good. Our server did a great job selling but the food lacks. Will not be returning. Left bloated and with stomach pain. 😟

    Took my bf here to celebrate finishing school and it was awesome! I made a reservation a few hours in advance for the patio area but we ended up being seated in the basement inside. It’s a Funky retro, 70s vibe inside, dimly lit at night, tightly packed but we were tucked into a comfy corner and Our server was great! Half way through the music got super loud but we loved the vibes anyways. Food was incredible, we tried every oyster on the menu. Great first experience, wish they stayed open past 10 pm so we could try more cocktails!

We came for a celebratory dinner for my daughter and boyfriend’s college graduation and our waiter was right on board with helping us make the evening fun. He even treated us to surprise desserts with candles. Will definitely be back if we are in Atlanta again.

    First time at Beetlecat. We had the fry bread and calamari to start, both were incredible. The calamari comes with fried peppers and onions which were a nice bonus. My friend and I aren't into raw oysters which is a shame because they had so many. I opted for the lobster roll which was served cold unfortunately. It was smaller than it looks in pictures. She opted for the spicy shrimp noodles. Sparse on the shrimp, but a hefty serving of noodles. Great flavor with a little heat. I would go back for the fry bread alone. Kevin provided excellent service.
