Always Excellent

Whether you choose the Abilene or Albany location, you will not be disappointed. The food is always fabulous. Thursday all you can eat shrimp in Albany is simply incredible. The steaks in Abilene are amazing. The Beehive is the bee's knees!

Perini Ranch was closed and were being taken to dinner by a local...have eaten at PR's before and knew it was good. Wanted chicken fried steak while in Texas and was not disappointed.... huge and delicious....did I say HUGE? Mashed potatoes and green bean/ carrot sides were excellent as well as the included soup (instead of salad). Will include this... More

I like to go here when I know I want a good steak and good service. We go here like on celebrating an anniversary or special event when we want to be able to converse and not have alot of restaurant noise and have always had good service. The menu is a little limited but anything I have tried is... More

We had a business meeting here with 31 people. They were very prepared and did an excellent job in serving everyone. The meal was fabulous. I can personally recommend the rib eye steak. Several had the shrimp & fish. I can highly recommend this place and could find nothing that was not excellent in every way!

Numerous people have told me since I've been in Abilene, on business, to go to The Beehive. I love to eat and I especially love good food and price is not an issue. I ordered escargot and prime rib w/salad. Escargot was okay and salad was joke-ish. I couldn't get a refill on water and the numerous families, four persons... More

Outstanding food with ridiculous portions! We went there for lunch and the lunch special was the chicken fried chicken. It was a huge whole breast, butterflied, breaded and fried. Excellent flavor. Burgers are excellent also!

After reading the reviews I was expecting something great. It was just ok. They weren't busy but put me in the back. My table was dirty. Waiters were attentive but not in a good way. Kept asking over and over and over if my food was good but never refilled my tea. Crazy. I had the Ribeye which was seasoned... More

This is downtown, so the lunch time is really busy. I have been twice this week and have been finished and back to work before 1:00. You would thing with the quality of food you would have to wait longer, but not true. The food was wonderful, the service great!

The atmosphere at the Beehive is unique. The food is excellent and the staff is really professional but friendly. If you have the chance, try it out and see how you feel about it.

The Beehive was the first place my (now) husband ever took me on a date, and it has been our regular date-night place for 3 years! The food is always wonderful and their specials are delightful and innovative, the staff is an absolute pleasure, and the mason-jar-sized long islands are incredible! I try to switch things up when I go... More
