A typically busy night but a 20 minute wait was not a problem. Once we were seated, service was quick with our drinks and bread within 2 minutes. My chicken fried steak was outstanding as usual and has been voted Abilene's best. My potato soup was the best ever and was more of an Italian version than the typical. My... More

They do not take reservations which is great for spur of the moment dinners unlike another steak place that us always booked. The wait may be longer on weekends but the bar will serve you while you wait! Love the smoked salmon appetizer and escargot !! I always order the filet with asparagus!!! Love this place!!!! The beehive dinner salad... More

Came to Abilene for my Daughters College Graduation. With family and friends we came by the Beehive for dinner and drinks. The drinks were great, large and good and the Food did not let the mood slip at all. It was a great time and I look forward to a return trip to the Beehive!

This is a walk back to old Abilene buit in modern times. I do have to say first the front of house staff can be rude at times, but fight through it. Start at the bar with a Texas Tea, wow but only one! They always have great specials and all your favorites. I see the other reviews and yes... More

Thus is a very nice restaurant With very reasonable prices. Chicken fry is 7.99 and you will be hard pressed to find better anywhere. Mesquite grilled ribeyes, filets and excellent fried shrimp. Owners are really involved here and it shows.

This place was recommended by an Abilene resident our group met while at the outdoor concert in town. The food was great and so was the service. We had about 14 in our group and the wait staff handled it with ease (or so it seemed). Everyone enjoyed their dinner. When we return to Abilene, we will be sure to... More

I have eaten at the Beehive in Abilene many times. The food is always great. I took a friend from California to eat there, and she had the best steak she had ever eaten!

The food is really one of the best you can find anywhere. Along with the warm and elegant atmosphere and the personal attention of the owner, this place quickly became a favorite destination for dinners with friends and business meetings.

There were nine of us in town for a Harley Davidson Owner's Group rally. Where to eat; where to eat. The Beehive was walking distance from the street party downtown. So we took a chance. We were informed that the wait would be 45 minutes; but they seated us in one of their semi-private dining rooms within 20 minutes. The... More

My go to favorite is the Ham steak with baked potato and salad. Simple but good and filling. Plus the price won't break the bank.
