We had a great brunch. We dined outside on the deck on a lovely day with great food and drinks at reasonable prices served by a friendly staff. What more could you ask for. And, they obeyed all the proper distancing, masks, and other virus protocols.

Great restaurant! Nice atmosphere, on the river with a great view of the water. Really good food at a reasonable price. Very attentive service. For those bourbon lovers in the crowd, a great bourbon offer. Go and enjoy a nice dining experience!

Once again, The Beehive met or exceeded my expectations. I tried their Hungarian Mushroom soup and was more than pleased. This restaurant overlooks the Ohio River and once can enjoy a wonderful view as well as a wonderful meal. We meet friends here once or twice a month and always enjoy the experience. One does not expect a restaurant this good outside of urban areas.

Curry Chicken was very dry and was returned, The prime Rib after I returned home I found gave me food sickness took a day to get over. Been there before Covid and was very good, But with poor quality food I wont return until after Covid is over and menu becomes better and traffic can increase freshness

Every dish was excellent. Be sure to make reservations. I have seen many come into town to dine at the Hive only to find out it's booked to capacity due to limited seating at this particular time.

We were a party of 3 and enjoyed a wonderful Sunday evening dinner, made even more memorable by Ange our server. It was busy but the staff was very attentive,making sure all service was on target and efficient. Once again this place was well worth the trip to enjoy a quite evening dining inside or outside finishing with a ferry ride across the Beautiful Ohio River.

We drove up from Cincinnati to Augusta on Route 8. We were getting out of the house, and hadn’t been upriver for awhile. Dined at the Beehive a couple of times years ago, so decided to make a reservation. It did not disappoint. It has definitely improved in space and decor. Sitting outside on the balcony on a beautiful Saturday afternoon enjoying the breeze and view was magical. The menu was varied, our meals delicious, and the staff, welcoming and attentive. We’ll be back with friends!

We drove from Cincinnati on the AA Hwy. to Rt2 2228 which was marked closed to thru traffic. We ignored the signs and had no problems connecting to Rte 8. Continuing on to Rte 19 works as well but another 10 - 12 miles further

We love eating at The Beehive Augusta Tavern. Among our favorites are the Salmon,pasta with shrimp and also their salads. Save room for one of their awesome desserts. We dine there often. Love the place.

The Beehive is that rare restaurant that pays attention to every detail of the dining experience-from the decor, to the excellent menu, highest quality ingredients, handsome presentation accompanied by attentive, friendly service. Everything about the place is executed with competence. The food is simply excellent. Highly recommended.

Had Brunch for 3 on Sunday and it was very good.
Would plan to go again soon for dinner just have to program time for the Ferry ride back to Ohio which makes it's last trip at 7:45 PM. This is a great destination to meet for dinning anytime, Lunch, Brunch or Dinner.

It’s an interesting old building . The renovation they did on it really took it a step up for sure. We had made our reservation a month ahead of time for outdoor dining not knowing that the temp outside was going to be 90 degrees. So it was a bit uncomfortable . Food was excellent . Service started out on the poor side . We were seated for 15 minutes with no one acknowledging us until we flagged down a server who then said she would check on who was assigned to our table. She then returned and said no one had been so she would take care of us. After that the service was fine.

We meet friends here every week or two. We each drive about 60 miles to enjoy some wonderful food and service here in Augusta KY. I always have one of their brunch/breakfast treats. They're all good. I especially enjoy their Burrata.

You can't go wrong! Try this place!

Not open for lunch currently on Thursday. Beautiful riverside outdoor dining available on the sidewalk or upstairs where the restrooms are located.
Excellent service, small but good wine list.
The crab cakes were among the best I've ever tasted and the salmon was superb.
Don't skip dessert!

5 Girlfriends celebrated birthdays and had a delicious dinner and great experience. One of my friends order a glass of wine. It turned out to be old. When it was brought to our server’s attention, the manager brought a new bottle out, apologized, and did not charge her for the glass of wine. Very nice and smart business move! We will return!!!

Beehive Tavern was an eclectic little joint with a lively and rustic ambience. The food was really good, especially the honey cream pie. I definitely recommend this restaurant to experience the Ohio river from Kentucky.
