We really like the new version of The Beehive in charming Augusta. The renovation is exceptional. They kept the historic tavern feel but gave it a total makeover.
Everyone is friendly and accommodating. That being said, there is a definite need to organize the operation so that service runs more smoothly. It’s such a charming place and the food and drinks are great but timing is way off. We didn’t mind so much because we were there to take our time and enjoy the evening,but if it’s not especially inviting when service is not running smoothly. Great place, great people, great food! Just needs some help with organization. We will be back.

The food was good, unfortunately, we had to wait for almost an hour, after being seated on the patio, for someone to notice we were there. We were brought water and told the server would be right with us. That did happen. Unfortunately, once we got our food, we had to ask for silverware and it was so dark at our table that we could not see to eat. We asked to be moved inside. Plus, there were several items that they were out of. Recommend to a friend? Maybe.

New owners have done a beautiful job restoring the building. However, my drink at the bar was so-so. Could not taste any cucumber in the cucumber cosmopolitan and “no clean martini glasses”?! Service was slow.

Steak special was sold out by 7:30 on a Saturday evening? Prime rib should not be listed on the entree menu if it is only available on Sundays. Filet was average. I suppose green beans were from Farmer’s Market but someone should have tasted them...they were tough, stringy, and over mature. My husband had the pork chop. It’s seasoning was good, but he thought the same thing about the green beans. Food quality definitely disappointing. Drove an hour to get there...

Hi Folks, We appreciate your feedback. As we focus on farm-to-table cuisine, we only serve protein that we stand behind, and small local farms can only provide in limited supply. We have partnered with a new local farm that has increased supply for our upcoming Fall Menu. Chef will be more selective with our farmers re: produce. Re: Glassware, We do apologize and have since remedied this issue. We would love to have you back for the release of the Fall Menu on October 25th. Rob GM. Beehive

We were in for an early dinner and ate indoors upstairs. Our server was nice without being overly in our face (allowing us to talk and enjoy). Food was delish, but my sandwich had so much mayo on it that the grilled chicken slid out. LOL I've eaten here several times before, and it seems to get better from service perspective each time. Would like to see more beers on draught.

We had a wonderful meal. I ordered the salmon sandwich with mango salsa and fries. We also ordered the cheeseburger and fries. I had two lemon martinis. The martinis were perfect. This was our second visit and both times we have had exceptional food and service. Wes took very good care of us. We sat upstairs and had a beautiful view of the river. This is our new favorite place to eat. We look forward to going back.

Not sure. It would have to be for a certain type of people. Menu is totally limited. Only one choice of steak and no salad with meal. Don’t like all food piled up together. It was just ok not what I expected. I’d go back with my girl friends but my husband didn’t like it at all.

The food was good but not a lot of variety on the menu. Out waiter was terrible. We did not get good service. We ordered an appetizer and it never came. Had to ask for it twice. And the waiter never brought us any bread. I also would like to let that we had made a reservation for 6:00 pm and still had to end up waiting at least 20 minutes on our table when we arrived at 5:55pm. The atmosphere is great and the location is nice. We set outdoors which was very nice. Overall the food was very good but the service was not great at all.

Loved the upstairs, outside dining looking over the river! Service was great from the time we walked in the door. The hostess was so friendly and seated us immediately a little before our reservation time. Our server was very helpful in explaining the menu selections. The fried olives were unbelievably delicious, as well our entree. Overall service was great! Hope to return soon😊

Spent the day visiting Augusta and ended up at the Beehive Tavern for dinner. It was a wonderful experience. We had a drink in the bar followed by dinner outside which provided a fantastic view of the river. The food and service were very good. All in all a memorable experience.

The food was fantastic once it was served. We had 7:00 pm reservations, we were seated about 7:15. Our food was served around 8:15. They were out of bread, biscuits and a few other items. My husband was seated under a vent and condensation from the AC would drip down his back on occasion. If we go back it will be earlier in the day, like I said, the food was delicious.

We had a reservation at 6pm. We were told the kitchen was backed up and we did not get seated until 6:30pm. We went for the Prime Rib, that is only available on Sundays. By the time we got to order they were out of the Prime Rib and the other steak option.

Thank you for your words.. We have held many Host/Hostess training since this day so that groups with reservations will be seated in a timely fashion. As a farm-to-table restaurant, we use only high quality protein that we stand behind, and small farms can only supply limited quantity. We have partnered with a farm here in the county who has increased production to avoid this in the future. We will be serving amazing pasture raised Black Angus starting October 25th and hope you join us again.

Everything there was superior except for the fact that neither of the two wines ordered by the couple with us was not available. Other than that, we had a marvelous experience. Dinner on the porch overlooking the Ohio River was the best!

Checked in 15 mins. early on reservation. We noticed that Potential customers without reservations asked for seating, told no. We were immediately taken to the balcony. We notice half the tables were empty throughout our stay but they kept turning people away? Service was great: after several minutes, after eating an appetizer, we were told the kitchen was backed up and offered bread that had no flavor. After a long wait, the entree was delivered and noticed how small the salmon was, then we found it was over cooked (dried out). The dinner was pricey for what was offered. If you are going to charge the prices, make sure the food is of equal value. Doubtful to return. The most positive was the excellent service by Micha (spelling?)

For the price of the food, I wasn't overly impressed. The server had minimal menu knowledge and seemed to forget bringing out our rolls. The pork chop was ok, but the sides were not very appetizing. We won't go back, which is unfortunate because of how close It is to our home.

We made dinner reservations for 4 pm. We got there at 4 pm but they don’t serve dinner till 5 pm. You think someone would have said we don’t serve dinner till 5 when making reservations. Service was slow. People were friendly food was ok. Ordered salmon sandwich and the portion was extremely small. Burgers were good. Then ordered dessert and waited very long for dessert.
