Good Food

With few minutes to dine before Sunday evening closings - in the "off season" - we stopped for fish-n-chips and a beer. Supper was prepared by an Irishman who knew his batter! Overall ambience was a tad tired and waitress forgot things, but the meal was worth the wooden bench.

This restaurant closed last year. It is reportedly going to reopen under new ownership with a new name later this year, 2016. From what I have heard, the new owners also own the Irish bar, Flynns, in Sagamore. Flynns is very nice but also very small so I bet they were looking for a larger property such as the old... More

Really wanted to love this place. Such a cute little place with a cute little name but the food was horrible and the service even worse. Waitresses hung around chatting and ignored the guests. School cafeteria food or TV dinners would have been better. Brought family for a nice meal and was totally disappointed. Tried on a few other occasions... More

Great little tavern with good food and very friendly service! My husband and I enjoyed a cozy lunch there last March. We didn't get a chance to have dinner, but it looks like a fun place for an evening meal!

Our meal was unimpressive. We could tell that they were closing for good having been sold to a small pub chain on the Cape. We had enjoyed this restaurant in its hay day and will miss it.

We stayed at a local hotel, and this place was the closest. When we entered, we were greeted by the owner, who whilst pleasant, was rather abrupt. As he was Welsh and we were English, we had a reasonable conversation, whilst being shown to our table. The waitress took our order, and the food came reasonably quick. However, that's when... More

Located on the windy roady of 6-A. I was expecting something different based on the outside. Cute little place. Food and drinks were avg, but for being on the Cape you could say a little bargain.Staff were friendly and helpful with selections.Beat the fanchise places.Careful pulling out of parking lot.

we were very excited to take my brother and sister-In-law to the Bee Hive for their first meal on cape cod. They've never been to the cape and we thought this would be a great introduction to the hospitality, food and history. We've been to the Bee Hive in prior years and were looking forward to it. What a disappointment.... More
