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!

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.
