Charming tavern

Charming tavern with delicious food & friendly service, we try & visit at least once every time we get to the Cape. Specials are always delicious - the lobster quiche & steak salad were excellent!

Let me start by saying that I work in the hospitality business so I am probably a little more in tune than most when I eat out. This place looks like the quintessential Cape Cod eatery from the outside. Inside it certainly needs a renovation. Shabby, dirty, dark and dreary. Polyurethane peeling off our booth tabletop. The food was mediocre.... More

Stopped in with the FBIL after golf on a really bad windy day. Sat at the bar and ordered a reuben. He had the chicken lunch special. We both shared a seafood sampler plate as a starter. My sandwich was huge and I ended up taking half of it home for lunch the next day. Not only was it really... More

Wonderful enviroment, with live performances each night. Great food, and it was a very good price for the area. We got take out from this place three nights in a row, and each night the food was fantastic.

After a very dingy winter it was fun to find a bright spot at the Bee Hive in East Sandwich MA. It is a small tavern/restaurant with booths, candlelight, dark wood. Perfect for a snowy evening. Food was delicious and reasonable. Will go again soon

If you enjoy a nice tavern atmosphere then stop at the Beehive on Friday or Saturday night and enjoy a great prime rib with popovers or a delicious seafood entre. Tom Kelley will be playing your favorite songs especially if you like the Beatles. Always a good time. Small intimate bar if you are in the mood.

We stopped to dine and should have left before ordering. The menu was quite sparse with few side vegetable dishes. The Mel's that we'd if order were poorly presented and tasteless. We won't return.

Four of us stopped by the Bee Hive for a quick lunch. Two of us had the stuffed chicken breast special ($7.99) with mashed potatoes and fresh vegetables; the chicken was perfectly cooked, the portion was generous, and the herb stuffing was tasty. One friend had another special...the oyster roll which he said he enjoyed. Our other companion had lobster... More

We have been going here for years and always enjoyed it, but this time not so much. Chalk it up to off season and and a holiday but in any case the food as decidedly mediocre. Service as very good. My stuffed cod was tasteless. My clam chowder tasted like it had more corn starch than cream. My wife's turkey... More
