The Beehive is a fabulous restaurant in a beautiful setting. It is hard to describe it to somebody who has not yet experienced it personally, but if you have not been there, you should make your reservation immediately! The food and the ambiance are magical, as is the town of Augusta.

We had not been to Augusta in over 30 years, and enjoyed our Sunday drive from Cincinnati to the Beehive. We have already recommended it to friends. Our server was so informative and gave us great information regarding the new distillery opening soon. Our food was well prepared and delicious. Also, the honey pie is to die for!

My sister and her fiancé got engaged last night! The Beehive were so great about everything in helping set up a horse and carriage, giving the best customer service, and even writing “Congratulations!” on the pie for dessert! The Beehive is an absolute gem and I wish I could give them more stars. Can’t wait to be back soon!

A perfect setting for an intimate birthday dinner. I took my wife to the Beehive for a birthday dinner away from our children. We were seated outdoors, promptly attended to and served food prepared exactly as requested all while watching the sunset along the Ohio River. The service and food were excellent. All in all it was a beautiful evening for a beautiful woman.

The blackened salmon sandwich and fries were fantastic! The quinoa bowl was a disappointment, as the only drawback. Great service and ambiance, wine was top notch. Music was quite loud at first but settled down. Nice touch with the small, fresh warm rolls with condiments to start the meal.

We loved the riverfront location and the ambiance. We waited an hour to be served our meal after ordering. It was a windy day and, we were told, outdoor diners decided to come inside affecting the service. The steak tacos were excellent, but very fragile and hard to eat. We would have liked them to be a bit more hearty, but LOVED the flavor. Our waitress was friendly, and apologized for our long wait with a complimentary dessert.
Thank you very much. We will come back.

I always enjoy my meals at BeeHive in Augusta. The staff is always nice. The meals are typically perfect. I was not a fan of mushroom appetizer this trip.

Food was delicious, service very good. Flies ruined the experience. We ate outside for a special occasion- 90th birthday brunch. There were between 3 and 10 flies at the table and on our food and drinks throughout the meal. We were constantly shooing the flies and eventually covering our glasses and plates with napkins. When I mentioned the flies to the server and suggested that it would be good to have some fans outdoors blowing wind across the tables to keep the flies away, she said the flies showed up about two weeks ago...so not a new problem. The busser who cleared the table saw all the flies and said, "I couldn't eat out here."
Very surprised the management has not addressed this easily remedied problem.

The noise level is entirely dependent on the motorcycles getting on and off the ferry across the Ohio River. We always, at this time of year sit outside in the shade of the building.

This is a great place for lunch on a summer day. We meet friends there who drive roughly the same distance from a different direction. It's a wonderful place for reflection and conversation.

Their soups are always outstanding and I compliment the chef for his creative work. We have eaten at the Beehive many times, yesterday, I tried their Quinoa Salad which I really enjoyed. My wife continues to order their burgers which are wonderful. It seems always that one of us orders the Stuffed Mushrooms and shares it with the other three.

This place will not disappoint you.

Beehive has become one of our favorite “go to” restaurants. Whenever we have out of town guests, this is where we take them (twice in the last month) We especially love sitting on the upper deck outside to watch the river, the ferry and other boats.
It is a bit pricey, but we just love it. Generally the meals are good... not necessarily great...for the price. But to us the ambience makes up for it! We were there just 2 days ago for my birthday, love their white sangria!

Another incredible experience at the Beehive!

Our casual Sunday evening dinner was very enjoyable with a rustic and cozy ambience at the bar that transitioned to the outdoor patio overlooking the Ohio River. Our drinks varied from Pinot Griot, to Kentucky Lemonade, and a mint julep- delicious and flavorful to the last sip. The special this weekend, honor of the KY Derby, was a tried and true Kentucky original, the Hot Brown! I’ve had the pleasure to taste the original hot brown at The Brown Hotel, and I must say the Beehive took the crown with this one!

Lance and Lalani Bates are incredible down to earth people with a true heart to provide outstanding food in a Beeautiful environment. I Beelieve all the buzz is just the Beeginning for the Beehive and I can’t wait to Bee back! 🐝

It was a beautiful day to sit outside. Glad we did because the music was loud inside.
Food was so-so, nothing to rave about. Our appetizer crab cakes did not come until after we finished our entrees. They told us after our order that would happen and we could have declined but we got them anyway. Lots of crab but very soggy. I should know better to not order crab cakes in the Midwest. The service was very good.

Did not expect to find such a beautifully done restaurant buildout in this setting. The ambiance and food were fabulous! Can't wait to come back. I love the second floor deck!
P.S. Remember that the last Ferry from Ohio is at 7:45! We missed it by 5 minutes!

Daughter and I had our father daughter dinner here. Food was very good, service very good. Service was a little slow but overall they did a great job. Great place to eat especially if you get the chance to have your meal on the balcony. It over looks the river, nice view. you have to be careful with time if you use the ferry. We missed it and had to drive up river to get back to Ohio. Really no big deal because we live on that side of Ohio.
