We love the food and service at the Beehive. The only negative is they won't take reservations and if you have a group wanting to go and sit together, there are no guarantees. Sadly, we often make other choices when dining with a group, even though we would love to meet at the Beehive.

I travel to Abilene (or through) a lot and one of my favorite eating spots I 'The Beehive'. It is a little pricey for Abilene, but the food is always great, service is spot on, and I can get a table (on the weekend) with not much wait (< 20 minutes). I always go away feeling satisfied! This is a... More

I am originally from Abilene and I can tell you that this is the best all-around food in town. Abilene is not the best place to find good food, but this is a true exception. Any appetizer is good, even the escargot (do not be afraid of the snails, they are your garlic friends). I have had nearly every soup... More

A truly outstanding meal! We had a dozen oysters on the half shell as an appetizer, folllowed by the best entree I can remember. My wife and I split a 10-oz filet mignonette with baked potato and salad, and the steak was extremely tasty and tender. I ended the meal with a slice of most excellent carrot cake. We were... More

This is my second visit to the Beehive. Come hungry. You will leave well fed. Each entree comes with salad/soup and a side. I had the 10 oz filet with house salad and loaded bake potato. There was no room for dessert. Excellent food at an excellent price.

This is undoubtably one of the most popular restaurants in Abilene, in a great downtown location. It's a really fun place, yet they use MSG on everything I've ever eaten there. This poison causes a myriad of stomach issues and should be outlawed. Why would such a fine restaurant use this chemical? Because of this, we can no longer dine... More

Probably the best place in town to go for a glass of wine and a good steak. Nice, but not pretentious.

My husband and I love eating here. The food is outstanding and fresh. They always have a special for the day and I suggest you go for it, as we've never been disappointed.
