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.

Lots of beer and popcorn, but be selective with dining, as cuisine is basic, non-healthy, and just ok. Great venue for work group or team to meet up, with several screens of current games - though not wall to wall coverage like true dedicated sports...More

Broasted chicken is supposedly their specialty. It was over cooked and very dry. The batter was tasteless. Recommend skipping it. Other food was ok. Nothing special.

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!
