Everything was fantastic! From the pulled pork stuffed avocado to the rib-eye cooked perfectly. It's a nice restaurant, wonderful staff, fabulous kitchen and they know it. It is pricey but they sure know how to earn that price point!

Great food and service. It's off the beaten path so seems like a special place for locals. Delicious food with large portions.

Went to the Beehive based on reviews from TA. Absolutely wonderful. If you are visiting you need to go through town - but absolutely worth it. I had the Chicken Fried Steak - which was the best I've ever had - just awesome meat and very tender. The wife had stir fry, which was excellent. Just a great spot.

My wife and I ate here in August 2014 before a evening performance at a local theater performance. The salads were excellent and the waiter was attentive despite having too many tables and patrons. The steaks were tender and seasoned to perfection. It is not Perini Ranch, but when you don't have time to drive that far this is an... More

The Beehive has excellent steaks. My husband and I shared the 14 oz filet cooked medium and an extra salad. The steak was cooked just right, with good flavor and very tender. The ceasar salad had a good flavor. The rolls has a nice buttery garlic flavor. My husband ordered a beer and I had the house merlot. Our total... More

Based on other reviews, we decided to lunch at The Beehive, but I have to admit that I was a bit concerned about prices. There was no need for concern! It was delectable, and we thoroughly enjoyed each dish along with the atmosphere. My friends thought their sandwiches were perfection, and my somewhat complicated request was exactly as I asked....

Service was very good, even with a large rush. Thank you James for doing as so well with the crowd. Food was average, portions for the cost were small. Helping America with our waistlines.

We love going downtown to eat at the Beehive before seeing a play or musical. We love the ham steaks with bake potatoe, salad and a mason glass of sweet tea. It's a great family owned business and they have friendly staff. Don't forget to save room for some yummy goodies to round off the prefect meal. I normally take... More

Upon being seated, the napkin looked like a tuxedo. Cute until they served my drink in a mason jar. Pick one, you're either fancy or rustic because you don't do the combo well. I had filet mignon and it was pretty good. My husband had the orange roughy which was not prepared well--really fishy tasting. My son loved his filet... More
