With retro yet contemporary decor, dim lighting, and coastal accents, BeetleCat brings an air of casual sophistication to Inman Park’s food scene. Serial restaurateur Ford Fry’s homage to coastal Maine curates a retro ambiance. The upstairs features a chic dining area inspired by the class of the 1960s, while downstairs you’ll find The Den—a witty and nostalgic ode to 1970s Americana, outfitted with the style and bric-a-brac of a “groovy” home bar. Known for both scene and cuisine, BeetleCat boasts oyster deals, premium cocktails, and standout entrees like the New England style lobster roll on buttery bread, crab tostada, salt and pepper squid, seasonal crudo, and crowd-pleasing artisanal donuts. For those just getting into seafood, the entrees can come tapas-style, allowing for daring dabbling and group tasting. From date night to brunch, the atmosphere accommodates any kind of gathering. As the eatery continues to pique the curiosity of both locals and outsiders, reserving ahead of time is your best bet.
