A few weeks ago my daughter and I were looking for a place to eat and had heard great things about Busy Bee so we decided to give the place a try. I ordered the Fried Catfish and my daughter ordered a steak. The dishes came out fast and were cooked correctly. I can say that I have not seen... More

This is a really friendly neighborhood country eats place. They have a great breakfast 24 hours and usually good service with plenty of hot coffee and ice tea! It's kind of like a small town version of a "Black-eyed Pea" for those that remember that chain. I love their biscuits and gravy and the cinnamon rolls are HUGE. The cook... More

I stopped here for lunch and my choices were KFC, Captain D's, Popeye's, and Tacos on every corner. This place looks very quaint and homie. The atmosphere was great, country music playing, a moose head on the wall and comfortable booths and tables. I had the chef salad which was huge. I asked for a half chef salad but the... More

Standard Southern Cooking done well. (My "go to" is the Chicken Fried Steak) Very nice vegetable sides selections. Friendly staff. Tasty Pies. Bottomless SWEET TEA and coffee. ONLY place in town with an indoor separate smoker's room.

Service is below quality. We weren't greeted, just told that we could have a seat. The waitress was borderline rude and never smiled. She was a bit pushy. In a thirty minute timeframe, she came by the table one time. The food is nothing to brag about. The roast beef is juicy but not as tender as expected. It's also... More

Just a quiet little diner style restaurant. Country style food, large portions. Can't go wrong here. Had Christmas Dinner here and was very happy. If your in the area, give it a try.

Actually disappointed. We used to eat here all the time and the food and service was amazing in the past... This time we were never greeted when we came in. Once acknowledged and seated, the waitress came by and took our drink order but took forever to come back... She seemed irritable and not personable. The food was just ok... More

I started going here, as a smoker, because it has a designated smoking section that is isolated from non-smokers. It is the only restaurant that I know of in Alvin, where you can smoke at your table. I quit smoking since my first visits, but continue to go here to support the venue as a restaurant that one has a... More
