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,

This sports bar has the best popcorn in town. I usually get the broasted chicken which is very good but other food items are good as well. Can get very busy which sometimes affects the service but overall this is a favorite place.

Great burgers and reasonable drinks for an adult night out. Attentive hostesses and an owner who keeps his customers happy. Tell him "motorcycle" sent you! 😉

All of our out of town relatives like to come here. We also have gatherings here because there is a lot of variety and usually everyone can find something they like. Great popcorn as you come in while they make your food. I like the chicken caesar wrap and my hubby favors the walleye wrap. My mom and her hubby... More

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
