I ordered the shrimp basket. Got a good amount of medium butterflyed shrimp (about 15) with some fries. The shrimp was flavorful, and I really enjoyed it. Had others in my party order the breaded talapia. Stole a bite, and wish I had that as well. It was flavorful, and I think it was beer battered! The coleslaw, was very... More

Good hamburger, nice bar, but with very expensive prices especially for hamburgers, $11 min. You spend as a regular restaurant

Everyone who comes through Rochester will have seen the giant billboards for Newt's, and may tell you that's the place to go in Rochester for burgers. But I'm here to tell you different. Beetles is the place to go for burgers! We've been back to this neighborhood bar and grill many, many times. We love the laid-back atmosphere, friendly staff,... More

Had a craving for broasted chicken and we got together with friends for a great meal and conversation at Beetles. Hadn't been there in some time but the food was as good as always. Out of the four of us, three had two piece dark meat broasted chicken and one had the Reuben. Every one was satisfied. The service was... More

The hot turkey sammich was delightful. My son had Chicken strips which were hand dipped and were also very good. And of course the free popcorn helps!

My son and I went here tonight after several years of not dining here. Not sure why we never really go here, but it was pretty good. We both had burgers that were good. We ordered extra crispy fries, but they were not crispy. The bbq boneless wings were very good and huge! I will try this place again at... More

My husband and I used to visit Beetles on a weekly basis, but the service is not good. Their food is great, however the servers are often impersonal, and it's rare to see them smile.

My hubby is a fan of broasted chicken so we went to Beetles for that reason. He had no complaints regarding his meal. I ordered basic burger and steamed veggies which were fresh and not the frozen variety! Never know for sure without asking 😳. Burger for medium well was moist...always take a chance when ordering a burger that way... More

Miss MICHAEL'S but this is now our favorite restaurant; have eaten there the last 4 evenings and always left well satisfied. SOUP is nearly always great. Check the specials-most are worth a try!

Had the fish and chips which was a little on the greasy side. My husband had a burger which he liked.
