Great place for a good variety of eats. Love the decor, hometown mascot and athletic history displayed on walls makes an interesting wait. Good service and friendly faces.

The catfish box dinner was hot and tasty! We weren't expecting more than good food and received plenty of it. The catfish box had two big pieces of lightly coated catfish with a crunchy breading that I believe contained cornmeal and wasn't greasy at all....More

When I come to town I enjoy the catfish dinner and sometimes a shake. The people are friendly. There isn't a wait service you order your food and then go back up to get it when it's done. It would be better if they didn't...More

This small restaurant is owned locally and has the best food in Beattyville. I love it! We order from here at least once a week, sometimes more. It's recently been renovated and looks great!!

It appears that new management is upgrading equipment and facility in this older dairy bar location that was due for some upgrades. Glad to see it. Keep up the good work. Our order was taken quickly and the food came out in a reasonable time....More

This place is under new management and the food is excellent. They have also been busy renovating and putting in vents to remove grease smells. They also made it a smoke free establishment which my family greatly appreciates!

Totally enjoyed the catfish dinner with hush puppies and delicious cole slaw. The portions were very good. It cost $7.30 with coffee.

He Bobcat Dairy Bar is a fast food style diner in Lee County (Eastern Kentucky). It has been operating in Beattyville for over 40 years. We offer a variety of sandwiches, dinners, soups and desserts. The Bobcat also offers gasoline sales and storage units. The Bobcat Restaurant was purchased in 1978 by friends Gene Flynn and Heber Dunaway. Gene eventually fell ill and passed, so his wife, JoAnn became an active partner in the restaurant. The Flynn and Dunaway families ran the Bobcat for over 35 years. The Bobcat Dairy Bar was purchased by Phillip and Karen Flynn Angel (daughter of Gene and JoAnn Flynn) in 2014. Phillip and Karen have 4 children; Holly Newman, Kara Williams, Brystal Angel and Bryce Ange
