Augusta >Food & Dining > Beehive Tavern
glad they closed it down.
Yeah... I have to say: I traveled the world in the last 29 years and I have seen lot.... saddly to say: I don't think that the economy is fault on their downfall. We dined there once with my family. Here some basics: tables were dirty, silverware dingy, dirty. The service was nice BUT: that lady had A LOT of warts on her hands. I didn't feel comfortable knowing that she touched my silverware and napkin! The food was cold, didn't taste good. The bathroom was small and dirty. Too bad that this owner didn't take advantage of the wonderful location. A very idyllic town, with lots of history and culture. Cleaniness and a simple but tasty meny would have saved it.
My advice: The best restaurant in Augusta: we were there just today and we discovered this wonderful little place called BRAVO CAFE, not far from th Bee'hive ruin. The ambiance is extrordinary, A very clean establishment, tasteful decorated, the food was EXCELLENT, the service was STELLAR! The bathroom very classy and clean! We took extra food to go, it was that great! Prices are reasonable. It was worth driving all the way there from Cincinnati for that. We will definitelly return.
Beehive Tavern people should learn a lesson.
Don't know who cooks at this Bravo Cafe, but they certainly know what people expect. A+!
Bye = Bye Beehive Tavern! we won't miss you!
We made the trip on the motorcycle. Had coffee at the General Store and walked around waiting for the Beehive to open for lunch. I had the chilled cucumber soup. Very delicious and refreshing on a hot hot day. Hubby had the black beans and rice. Full of flavor.
Our service was just fine. Friendly waitress who was especially cute with the older couple sitting near us.
This was my second visit, hubby's first. We will be back!
Based on the review in the Louisville Mazazine we gave this place a shot. The web site looked good and the location on the shores of the Ohio River appeared great.
That is where it ended. It ewas dirty. The Chicken Salad came from a can. The Burger was pre cooked and there was only one choice for cheese. One beer in the bar. And, the place if dirty.
Don't go near this place. Run away. The staff could care less.
Recent Visit to Beehive.
On a recent visit to Augusta for dinner we chatted it up with locals and got several suggestions that we should try the Beehive. From what we heard we expected a great meal. We were told to get reservations which we did.
When we arrived to an empty restaurant we found the suggestion of reservations quite interesting. The service was good and we had a good table (lots to chose from when a place is empty on a Friday night!) The menu was a disappointment and the food followed suit pretty much. One of our party got a Cuba dish of sorts (Pork rendered down with rice and beans) which he found quite lackluster. I cannot say our food was awful, but we wish we had tried another place in town (of which there are several.)
What More Can You Ask for?. I was raised in a prominent Cincy restaurant family and am very picky. This place is great! Our waitress could not have been more helpful or charming! We had wonderfully homemade sauerkraut appetizers and I don't even like sauerkraut! I had the pan fried tilapia and it was light, fresh and appealing with homey green beans with ham and red potatoes. My husband, who travels frequently for business, had the Cuban beef stew and loved it. Tender beef and much flavor. Much more sophisticated food than you would expect without thr stuffiness. We did eat downstairs with a view of the river. If that makes the food taste that much better, then so be it - but this is not the case. Charming place, great food, and wonderful view of the river. What more can you ask!?
Great Food at Great Price in Unique Setting. Amazing food, friendly service, the very neat setting of an original colonial house setting! I cannot rave about the Beehive Tavern enough! I highly recommend the fresh catch or the prime rib, or you could always try one the the fresh items on the menu that changes with the seasons! This is well worth the beautiful drive the Augusta!
