Said wait was an hour and it was about 55 min. After being seated, service was prompt and efficient. Only complaint was waiter had long walk to bar to get drinks which slowed things. Food was excellent and quantity sufficient. Priime rib looked rare but tasted like med rare as was ordered. Shrimp scampi was different but good with 10... More

Not a lot of choices on the menu but good choices. Steak prices were a little to high for me to order one but the shrimp was reasonable. I liked the atmosphere but felt a little under dressed. We were there for the lighted Christmas parade.

If you are visiting Abilene or just moved here the Beehive is one of the best restaurants in the city. If you live in Abilene or surrounding areas you already know this. So make sure you check it out!

My friends took me to this restaurant while I was visiting Abilene and told me that I HAD to have a steak before I left and they were right! The owner was a really friendly and down to Earth guy and even served us our appetizer. The wine list is pretty decent even though they were out of a few... More

We found this while in Abilene for our son's tennis tournament. Not wanting to go to a chain and always enjoying searching out local gems, we happened onto this during our internet search of local restaurants. The place from the outside looked like a classic 1960s upscale restaurant, but on the inside, while there were still 1960's touches and feel,... More

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
