Guests are encouraged to participate in the cheerful atmosphere by joining the nightly ragtime piano beginning at 7:30 pm, and the sing-along beginning at 9:00 pm nightly, while proudly wearing their own ‘Bees’ that change seasonally.

The service and food was good. The menu only has a few choices but I think that helps ensure what they do offer is done well. Good place to go for dinner date or to hang out with friends.

As usual, just a great experience. Our waiter was so good, so friendly and fun to talk to. We asked to sit upstairs, outside, and of course you very accommodating.

Food was incredible, service was top notch and overall a great experience. It’s a great place to go for a date or just a quick stop. Between great mixed drinks and delicious food this is worth its weight in gold. While it can get pricey I haven’t been disappointed yet. If you’re in area it’s a fun place to try!

The food was mediocre. There were 4 of us . We had a couple of drinks each and dinner, 3 of us had sandwiches. The 4th person had the shrimp and grits and said it had no flavor. Our bill was $300! They added a 20% tip to our bill automatically. We would have tipped 20% because the service was good, but when did it become standard to add a gratuity for a table of 4. We will never go back.

We chose Golden Bee based on positive reviews. Sadly, it did not live up to expectations. First, the positives: beautiful woodwork and atmosphere of an English Pub, and our server was very attentive and pleasant. However, on the negative side--the food was very disappointing! We were told that the fish and chips is their signature dish and very popular. All three in my party ordered it. The fish was undercooked for all three of us, to the point of the white fish looking more opaque than white and the texture was slimy! The fries (chips) were also very underdone, flavorless and limp. We brought this to our server's attention. To his credit, he was quite concerned and apologetic. He asked if we would like a re-cook of our dish. We did, and he addressed it with as much efficiency as possible. The re-cook came out with overdone fish, and decently golden brown fries that were still flavorless. We made due. The crust on the fish is underwhelming and fish itself is not light and flaky. We all felt that the fish and chips were some of the poorest tasting weve ever had. The fish serving is also much smaller than at any pub or restaurant we've tried. If that is their "signature dish", we aren't inclined to try another. None of felt a return trip is likely.

I loved the Spinach salad and Quiche. The dressing and pickled onions were delicious. My husband ordered the French onion soup and then we shared the Short Rib pot pie. Everything was delicious! Service was great! Very attentive. Will return.

Service was great and the location is beautiful. Food, to be honest, is overpriced relative to taste and quality. I had their pretzel with fondue. The pretzel was delicious but the fondue tasted like cheap, watery mashed potatoes (the box kind). I also had their french fries and the black forest cake. These were quite good, but I've had comparable or better at a lesser cost at other establishments.

I’d recommend it for drinks after 9pm unless you’re ready to spend over $100 for dinner. Cool place, service was outstanding and the food came out quick. I had fish and chips and she had bangers and mash. Food was excellent, but you’re paying extra because of where it’s at. The Broadmoor charges an extra 20% as a surcharge.

Piano bar ambiance and service are stellar. It would’ve been a really great place to hang out except that the food was abhorrent. The “house specialty” fish and chips had to be sent back three times. The fish was cold/gelatinous in the middle even though the batter was well fried. Fries were tepid and tasteless. Ribs had to be sent back twice because they were cold. Reuben was inedibly fatty. Cocktails were great and our server was so apologetic even though he had nothing to do with it. Management also came to apologize and comped all the food, but they have some serious issues to address with the kitchen.

Fries were cold - would have expected a fresh batch with my $17 meal (fish and chips). Wasn't in the mood to complain - expect it right the first time. They include a 20% tip on your bill - you might miss this if not paying attention. Not familiar with this additional tip policy for a 3 person meal. Would expect a better food experience on the first serving.

Very fun atmosphere, and I highly recommend going when the piano music is playing. The staff is kind, friendly, and great with suggestions. There's a lot of attention to detail that made our experience very memorable! Can't wait to go back and try the giant pub pretzel (although the fried avocado was incredible and a perfect suggestion!).

Reuben is one of the best you can get anywhere. The fish and chips are also very good. When you add in great service and atmosphere you have a very special place to enjoy a cold beer. Thanks so much for the wonderful experience.

Just plain fun! The food, portions and service are all very good but what sets The Bee apart, from the moment you sit down until you reluctantly have to leave, is the atmosphere. At night, piano music with a sing-along later adds to it all but whenever you go, you'll have a great time.

Sadly, this is the worst food experience I have had in Colorado Springs. Overall, extremely under seasoned. The French Onion Soup was so burnt on top that the entire soup tasted burnt. The Mussels were very good, different and great. The Shepherds Pie was so flavorless and under seasoned. Was also disappointed that it was ground lamb and diced lamb. The ribs had so much sauce it was overwhelming. And again, the potato salad and slaw were under seasoned. The fish and chips were good. For the price you pay, it was a disappointment. Also, sitting next to the bar is a bit loud if you’re lucky enough have a couple drunks present. We literally had a women get up turn around and start talking to us, a bit shocking to my 11 year old. Unfortunately, I will never return or recommend. The service, however, was impeccable! Now I would recommend Restaurante Del Lago! Fantastic at the Broadmoor.

First timer here. I’ve heard that this place was fun, so I just had to stop in. This fine restaurant is jam full of excellent people.. from the greeters at the door to the waitress, to the clean up staff. Everyone is well trained and it shows. Things that impress me..
1. As I ordered my entrée the waitress was picking up my cracker wrappers. 2. A table clean up employee was wiping off the salt and pepper shakers! 3. Everyone smiles and I can tell that they want me here! All these things add up that makes the Golden Bee experience very pleasant. By the way... they have great food too!
I’ll be back soon!
