Outstanding!

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... read more

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

The place was great, almost made my dismal stay at the Civic Plaza Hotel worthwhile, almost, next time I will stay at another hotel and eat here, the food is unmatched in authenticity and flavor for a small town it has the ability to compete with any restaurant anywhere in the world.

Having heard so many great things about this place, my husband and I went on a Friday night. We both ordered the prime rib and were both extremely satisfied. It was perfectly cooked, juicy, and flavorful!! The meat was so tender, you probably didn't even need a knife. Although a bit on the pricy side, it's 100% worth it. We... More

The Beehive is almost always crowded, but it is worth the wait. They have the best ribeye in Abilene if you are there for dinner. It is a little pricey. For lunch, their daily specials are great. You can go online to see what they are going to be that day. One drawback is they won't seat anyone if the... More
