    Fabulous brunch. We had mimosas, shrimp and grits, and huevos rancheros. The grits were creamy with wonderful bourbon sauce. The huevos were bright, crispy with eggs cooked to a perfect sunny side up. The birthday boy has creme brûlée on the house. We will definitely make the trip from Dayton, Ohio. Thank you!

    The Beehive remains a lovely target for a day-trip from Cincinnati, particularly after a drive along Route 52 and a ferry-crossing. Our meals were tasty, service excellent. But there is total disregard for masks, staff and customers. WHY?

    if you want to go away from the city to a quiet time of life even if it's just to eat then this is the place. right along the river whatching the ferry making its way across with the backdrop of small town feel. Tom Sawyer would have loved this place

Staff was friendly and helpful, food was outstanding, and we will be visiting again soon when the weather is warmer to enjoy the river view from outdoor seating! Highly recommend!

    It’s been over 30 years since I dined at the Beehive. Big change - I loved the atmosphere. Our group shared the stuffed mushrooms. I had the salmon with succotash. So delicious. We really enjoyed ourselves after our visit to the Baker Bird Winery. A very nice day trip for us, from Northern Kentucky!

    Restaurant experience was outstanding. Food, service, ambiance, etc were outstanding. About a 40 minute drive from Ft Thomas which is equivalent to many of the restaurants that we visit in greater Cincinnati. But a much prettier drive.

    The burgers were a little over seasoned. The fries were good. The stuffed mushrooms were delicious. There was a mix up on one of the parties soup, and then it had to be reheated. A second round of coffee was served cold. I’ve eaten at the Beehhve before. This visit was a little disappointing.

    Get out your wallet if you want to eat here way to pricey. The place is beautiful and the staff was very friendly. My husband paid for our drinks and they short charged him by 10.00 . After seeing the menu and how pricey it was we canceled our reservation. We went to the near by pub and had a fabulous meal at half the cost.

    First time here. Was noisy to begin as there was a wedding party occupying the bar and then the upstairs balcony, and they required a majority of serving attention. With the exception of having to send soup back to the kitchen twice as it was served cold, not tepid, but cold, our orders were very good. The fried deviled eggs were unique & worth ordering again. Nice motorcycle destination .. Our server was great. We will be back again

    We were very excited to try Beehive, but left very disappointed. The burger was incredibly spicy, yet nothing in the menu indicated that it might be. It was so spicy, the person who ordered it could not eat it and traded meals with someone else in our party, who then struggled to eat it because of the spice level. When we mentioned it to the server, she merely said she thought so too but other employees didn’t! Also, one person substituted a different side for what came with the meal and was charged an $11 surcharge! Ordered alone, the side would have been $8. How is that acceptable? If we had still been at the restaurant when I learned of this, I would have discussed it with someone, however the person paying did not share the information until later. I’m appalled and will not be back.

    The atmosphere in the restaurant is delightful. We had chicken which was delicious. Some of us had shrimp, it was over cooked. Green beans, fried deviled eggs, artichoke dip all delicious. 2X baked potato not so good. Creme brulee delicious, pie not so much. Service excellent and we enjoyed our dinner.

    Late lunch and we were hungry after walking & touring for Civil War Days!! Started with artichoke dip with pita chips~hit the spot!! Then blackened salmon sandwich with truffle parm fries & barbecued chicken sandwich with smoky bbq fries ~ both had their unique awesome flavor.. very good…but those smoky barbecue fries were amazing!! Took the honey pie to go and what a sweet treat later .. melt in your mouth goodness!! Earlier we had heard about Buckners bourbon and saw it on the bar as we were leaving!! Had to give it a try .. to be 120 proof single barrel cask strength .. it was pretty smooth and full of flavor..little pricey but had to get a bottle! Great Day!!

    I had the salmon, which was delicious and the white Sangria drink, which was also very good. We sat outside upstairs , where we could watch the boats on the river. The Beehive Augusta Tavern is so beautiful. The decor of the inside restaurant is outstanding. Service was excellent. Highly recommend the Beehive Augusta Tavern.

    Great time, food, river view at The Beehive! Only noise was from the motorcycle parade getting in line to cross on the ferry but we waved and they waved back and they were obviously enjoying their day as we were also. Highly recommend The Beehive.
