excellent place to eat and visit with owner

Best chicken fried steak in the country. We have eaten here many many times since they have been opened, and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and the staff is the best. Try it and you will be impressed.

The service was wonderful, the decor was very nice and elegant. The food was phenomenal. Love the Beehive salad, a good wine selection, and delicious steaks and sauces.

While some business associates were in Abilene we wanted to show them some of Abilene but unlike usual, out guests were only here for the day. The Beehive was surprisingly fast and just as good for lunch as I have had there for dinner. Give your visitors a taste of West Texas.

When friends come to town, this is our 'go to' restaurant. The food never disappoints. The steaks are melt in your mouth tender, the service is excellent and in the evening, the atmosphere is romantic. There are fresh flowers on every table and candle light makes it lovely, especially if you are in one of the back rooms. Be warned,... More

Super good food. Was a little crowded but maybe that was because everyone wanted to ear there. Service was great and very friendly. Best baked sweet potato I have ever had. It was perfectly done.

My wife and I visited here after seeing its high ratings on Trip Advisor, and we were not disappointed. I got the "small" 10 oz. filet and it was one of the best I have ever eaten.

Food was delectable! The service was superb. The place was clean. They severs made sure to clean as soon as a guest leaves. And they genuinely took care of my guest and me. It was by far one of the best semi-upscale restaurants I've even been to. I felt fancy (lol). It is a steakhouse, so they're prices are from... More

This restaurant is one of the hidden gems in Texas. The food is always amazing in all of my visits, and there have been many, I have never been disappointed with the food or service. Also on each visit I have had the opportunity to visit with at least one of the owners. Great guys with a great story
