I have been coming here for years and really like the place. The business is locally owned. Good food and walking distance from St. Marys. Best popcorn in Rochester!

We had a sunday funday adventure at Beetles yesterday and its the first time I've spent a decent amount of time there. We were the later evening type crowd and arrived around 7:30pm. The service was prompt and the drinks were amazing. They had cucumber vodka bloodies that my friends raved about but I did not personally try that. I... More

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.
