We made the trip on the motorcycle. Had coffee at the General Store and walked around waiting for the Beehive to open for lunch. I had the chilled cucumber soup. Very delicious and refreshing on a hot hot day. Hubby had the black beans and rice. Full of flavor.

Our service was just fine. Friendly waitress who was especially cute with the older couple sitting near us.

This was my second visit, hubby's first. We will be back!

Pros: river view, small town charm, history of the place

Cons: restrooms could be updated

Based on the review in the Louisville Mazazine we gave this place a shot. The web site looked good and the location on the shores of the Ohio River appeared great.
That is where it ended. It ewas dirty. The Chicken Salad came from a can. The Burger was pre cooked and there was only one choice for cheese. One beer in the bar. And, the place if dirty.
Don't go near this place. Run away. The staff could care less.

Pros: None

Cons: Dirty, miserable menu, staff does not care, only one beer

On a recent visit to Augusta for dinner we chatted it up with locals and got several suggestions that we should try the Beehive. From what we heard we expected a great meal. We were told to get reservations which we did.

When we arrived to an empty restaurant we found the suggestion of reservations quite interesting. The service was good and we had a good table (lots to chose from when a place is empty on a Friday night!) The menu was a disappointment and the food followed suit pretty much. One of our party got a Cuba dish of sorts (Pork rendered down with rice and beans) which he found quite lackluster. I cannot say our food was awful, but we wish we had tried another place in town (of which there are several.)

Pros: Good location, ambiance in historic building

Cons: Rather nondescript menu and food

After reading the column written by Nick Clooney (Cincinnati & national TV personality, and Bat Man's father) regarding the Beehive Tavern's food, history, and chef, I had my doubts this restaurant could continue to match his praise. {Nick's write-up is at www.rosemaryclooneydotcom (replace dot with .), click in the left side "Bulletin Board" column on "Links", and then in the right side "Rosemary's Favorite Places" column click on The Beehive Restaurant.} I was pleased to find that this establishment continues to excel.

I took my family on the BB Riverboats day-long excursion from Cincinnati to Augusta, arriving in early afternoon. I had made reservations at the Beehive Tavern in advance (recommended), and a river-view window table was held for our arrival. Outdoor porch dining is also available overlooking the Ohio river.

As noted by Nick Clooney, the menu is varied and the food excellently prepared and presented. The historic nature of the tavern is preserved. The friendliness of the staff adds to the charm. Prices are reasonable.

Pros: Great food in an historic setting.

Cons: Might be a longer drive if coming from Ohio and not using Augusta's car ferry to cross the river.

I was raised in a prominent Cincy restaurant family and am very picky. This place is great! Our waitress could not have been more helpful or charming! We had wonderfully homemade sauerkraut appetizers and I don't even like sauerkraut! I had the pan fried tilapia and it was light, fresh and appealing with homey green beans with ham and red potatoes. My husband, who travels frequently for business, had the Cuban beef stew and loved it. Tender beef and much flavor. Much more sophisticated food than you would expect without thr stuffiness. We did eat downstairs with a view of the river. If that makes the food taste that much better, then so be it - but this is not the case. Charming place, great food, and wonderful view of the river. What more can you ask!?

Amazing food, friendly service, the very neat setting of an original colonial house setting! I cannot rave about the Beehive Tavern enough! I highly recommend the fresh catch or the prime rib, or you could always try one the the fresh items on the menu that changes with the seasons! This is well worth the beautiful drive the Augusta!
