This was a 3 star food experience but the service pushed it all the way up to 4. For reference, we came at 11 PM on a Friday for their late night menu, which includes burgers, fries, lobster rolls, etc. It wasn't terribly busy and...More

A colleague recommended this restaurant and I absolutely loved my meal! It was the best lobster roll ever! The portion was surprisingly hearty and filling. I will definitely dine at Bettlecat again.,😍

Incredible dinner for our 20th anniversary! Drinks in the downstairs bar that looks like my grandmother's basement in the 70's. Shared plates were delicious, but oysters were even better! Good wine list that won't break the bank.

We enjoyed a very delicious brunch here August 12, 2018. The French Toast was perhaps not authentically French, but the Beetlecat twist made it absolutely amazing. The ham/cheese hashbrowns were perfectly crispy. We received excellent table service from Ashley, who provided helpful suggestions based on...More
