Always a good choice when going to Beetles. Good food, great service, nice drink selection, and delicious (free) popcorn. Typical American bar food so can never complain.

The staff at Beetles is always helpful and nice. They were slammed Saturday afternoon but even with it being busy the staff always wants to make sure you're good. You cannot go wrong with their tap beer selection and fresh popped popcorn!

Always a spot to sit, but busy; Service is good, food is great and large portions. Nice place to relax after work or with friends with free popcorn & drinks, but isn't noisy. Kids to elderly. Local owner is friendly and just a relaxed, casual atmosphere.

Beetles has free popcorn, plenty of tvs, and a good menu for appetizers and drinks. There is plenty of seating and a nice outdoor patio in nice weather to sit with friends or family. Good onion rings.

The owner went to school with one of my Brothers-in-law. The food is excellent no matter what time of day you go there. The staff is always extremely friendly and make you feel like they are glad you are there. Music can get a little loud some nights, but not often,
