Fans of The Nightmare Before Christmas might not be able to get “This Is Halloween” out of their heads after a night drinking at this bar dedicated to all things Tim Burton. Walk through the black storefront to discover a barroom decorated with ominous-looking surgical equipment and fake gravestones. Drinks like The Beetle’s Juice with tequila, blackberry schnapps, bitters, cranberry and lime ($14) and the This is Halloween with Fireball whiskey, pumpkin liqueur, sour apple schnapps and apple cider ($12) take the Burton theme a step further, as does the food menu. The Love It Meat Pie (a nod to Sweeney Todd’s Mrs. Lovett) tops chicken in garlic cream with corn bread ($25) and the Edward Burger Hands comes with a bison patty, bacon, pepperjack cheese, a quail egg and sriracha cream ($16). End the night with a Warm Wonka Chocolate Bar Cake ($12) or the chocolate martini, a combination of vanilla vodka, Dorda chocolate liqueur, creme de cocoa and cream garnished with a chocolate bar ($12).

Someone needs to report this restaurant to the Tim Burton police! I just went this evening with my friend and our kids, and was sadly disappointed. The decor was half-hearted and it seemed as if the entire wait staff, with the exception of the bus boy, had never worked in a restaurant before tonight. When I think of Tim Burton, I think detail, originality, thoughtfulness, humor, darkness - none of which is represented at Beetle House, save for the dark. It is literally too dark to read the menu. Food was fine, but overpriced for what it was. The best part was when they FINALLY came for the check and we left and ran into Edward Scissorhands coming up from the cellar. Excellent costume and actor. My advice would be to save yourself the $125 and just hang outside and wait for the characters.
We came for dinner and were super disappointed by the lack of decor and it was super tiny. Food was blah as well. No Beetlejuice in sight. I left a similar review on their Facebook and was attacked by the owner...I was shocked so I decided to check out other low star reviews on their Facebook page and it turns out he is extremely rude to any customer that gives a 1 or 2 star review--he calls paying customers "morons" instead of simply taking criticism. He then tries to act like the good guy and posts that they get amazing reviews, etc, so I called him out on that post with screenshots of his insults to customers. Well, he didnt like that. He then goes to MY jewelry business site and leaves a horrible review (when he has never done business with me) and has his coworker leave one as well. As you can see, he cannot take criticism well. Check out his 1 star reviews on Fbook and the YELP reviews especially.. as he tends to block/delete low rating customers from his Fbook page.
