First time visit. I had the lunch special. Pork chop which was very well prepared and presented. I would highly recommend this place.

“Nice food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

There was a wait to get into this restaurant. The drinks at the bar seemed weak. The atmosphere is an attempt at a more upscale place and for the area, meals are on the pricey side. The food was very good. The Beehive salad as a side is a must.

“Great food in Abilene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

The Beehive came highly recommended by several locals and after our visit agree. Quality food, service and a quaint setting.
Our meal started with the beehive salad and was delicious! We had the country fried steak served with mashed potatoes, white gravy, and a mix of corn and French green beans. Everything tasted great, very well seasoned! We also had a cheeseburger that came with fries. The burger was excellent, the fries...not so much.
Drinks are served in Texas sized mason jars...the iced tea was very good.
No room for dessert.

“Great Burger Not Great Margaritas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

The Dunigan burger is amazing! The service was okay. The margarita I ordered tasted watered down. When I brought it to the attention of the waiter he said he was going to mention it to the bar & bring me another. It was the same. They didn't seem very interested in fixing it. But the food is great!

“Others seem to like it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

My friends said to rank this a 3.5 but I can't. It's a good restaurant as far as abilene goes I guess. There's ms bar with 4 drinks on the menu. They serve steak and salmon, burgers and chicken. Nice atmosphere. It's cowboy classy. This would be the fancy restaurant of this town. I'm just being a snob because I'm from a big city. There wasn't anything awful about this place.
