A laid back vibe with better than average menu, great portions, good service. Lots of space between tables even before Covid. Good "after work" stop too!

Food is always so yummy and consistent. The atmosphere is a cool vibe, yet relaxed, with a bit of supper club. Servers and staff are so caring and hard working, we were in on a very busy night. Salad bar is best I’ve ever had...(yes the best compared to many good ones in the area). Every type of eater can find a good meal at this place that fits their needs. A vegan or vegetarian alone would be happy with the salad bar. Many pasta salads and usually a veggie soup. Grilled veggies and a side option for those who don’t like potatoes (crazy, right?). This will now be our regular hang out. Thanks so much for the nice night out. Pictures are the cod meal and the blackened salmon. Thanks to our amazing server chandler for the impeccable service!More

I eat there when I want really good broasted chicken. To my mind its the best in town. They have very good sandwiches, wraps and soups. Popcorn comes right away to your table with drinks. There are always special to consider.

We have dined here before and as most others who are familiar with this establishment, the clientele is on the elderly side mixed with a lot of Mayo employees. Large groups are the norm here because reservations are not generally needed. Yes there is free...popcorn which they keep available all the time. Our recent visit on a Tuesday at 5:45 PM, we found the parking lot to be 100% full. People were making 2 or 3 trips around the lot trying to find parking. We parked a block away in a separate lot. Once inside we found the place to be an absolute mess. Any open tables were dirty and cluttered with dirty dishes and napkins. Popcorn and spilled food all over the floor. We grabbed an open (least messiest) table on the raised level by the windows. It still took 15 minutes before anyone came by. Our server Aleese, was very nice and apologized for the wait. She explained that they were short staffed. We could see that there were no bus-persons, no one to clean the tables. The servers had to do it all, take orders, deliver food, bus dishes and clean the tables. They were all working very hard. When people would finish eating and leave, the table would stay messy until someone else sat there, then a server would have to clean it. Not very good management here. Our food was not too bad. We both had a glass of red wine; malbec $7, cabernet $5. My wife ordered the Frisco Melt which came with a side, she ordered cottage cheese which was hot (should be served cold) from being on a hot plate and next to a hot sandwich, she could not eat it, but her sandwich was good. I ordered the Loaded Burger - mushrooms, onions, green peppers, two cheeses. My side was a baked potato. The potato was a bit under cooked, the sandwich was delicious. So higher marks on a review could be better if not for the messy place, under staffing, the long waits and the sides not being so good. The place stays busy, so I guess most people don't care and the management doesn't either.More

We had five kids and 6 adults in our party on a Sunday evening. The kids had kids meals and drinks. The kids meal is $5.50 and the drink is additional $1.50. Seams pricey to me. Service was ok. Won't be coming back here for...birthday celebrations with the family!More

Beetles has great food, period. The place can be crowded at times and a little nothing organized to the tables, but the chairs are very comfortable and the service is usually pretty good, though sometimes a little slow. But it's all about the food, Best...burgers in town, I think. Also great Club sandwiches.More

Beetles is our favorite spot for a beer after work. We love sitting at the bar where the bartenders are consistently friendly and prompt. Food is always good and the chairs are comfy!

If you like broasted chicken this is the place. Friendly atmosphere. Older crowd when we were there. Great burgers too.

A group of friends met for monthly lunch and to "catch up". We all had something different-wraps, Reuben, nachos, fries and cole slaw. The fries are outstanding and some people like to order them "extra crispy". There is a bar so you can order beerdrinks...to accompany your lunch. Casual with lots of windows.More
