My boyfriend and I really like this place. The steaks and sea food are very good. Also Long Island's are very good.

My husband and I went to have dinner recently before we move back home next month. I really expected more from this place after hearing good things. We had onion rings as an appetizer and they were probably the highlight of our dinner. My husband had chicken fried steak and he said it was okay that he's had better. We... More

My wife and I took our new pastor to the Beehive for lunch. We selected the Beehive because of the open and airy environment to sit and enjoy a great meal and good conversation. The wait staff was perfect...professional, friendly, and attentive. The lunch selections were disappointing. I ordered the chopped sirloin. It was overcooked and the meat was very... More

Service is always good and the food is excellent. A little pricey for lunch but worth it. Have not been in for dinner but have been told it is as good or better than lunch.

I've eaten here several times. It is always excellent food. Lunch or dinner you can't go wrong here. From the streaks, seafood, chicken it is all excellent. The staff is very friendly and take good care of their customers. Local owners mean no cookie cutter food items like the chains. Evenings and especially weekends book fast to I recommend reservations... More

As always we take our ACU daughter & her roomie out to eat dinner here when we visit. The food is always excellent but this trip 2/3 of the steaks we ordered were not cooked as ordered. The rare steak was done correctly but the medium and medium rare came to us over cooked to the point of well done!... More

My husband and I had dinner there on Oct 14th. We split a 10oz filet which was so delightful. Yes, the steaks are big, but splitting worked out fine. We each had a potato and salad. Service was excellent, staff so friendly. And the rolls were great. Don't be fooled by a less than impressive exterior, the food and atmosphere... More

The Beehive has a great waitstaff and amazing food. Our waiter was very attentive and made sure our drinks were refilled. Loved the Chicken Fried steak. Will be returning on my next trip to Abilene.
