So the CSRA (Central Savannah River Area) is on a ROLL. If you saw my last post I visited a beautiful little café called Manuel’s Bread Café and that place was absolutely amazing. On the same day, in the afternoon, my family and I decided to pay The Bee’s Knees a visit. Whenever I go out to eat I always check Yelp, it’s a handy app/website where you can find exactly what you want. This place has 4 out of 5 stars and 225 reviews, for Augusta that is a lot of reviews. I was hesitant because it’s a Tapas bar and my family likes to eat a lot so I wasn’t sure if a small plates place was appropriate but we gave it a shot anyway.
THIS PLACE IS GREAT! ***Tony the Tiger voice***
I’m not exaggerating at all. It’s in Downtown Augusta which I believe is a beautiful area, it needs some work but nonetheless is gorgeous.
Anyway our waitress was incredible. I used to be a waitress so I kind of have high expectations from my waitresses but I always give them the benefit of the doubt, I mean they are people too. This is the waitress that I want for every restaurant I go to. She was upbeat, personable and friendly. She was informative about the specials and even had cute notes about everything that was going on. I wish I got her name but I know that she knows that she’s an incredible waitress.
They also try to only use local meats and seafoods and they have organic products. I love places like these! Even if I didn’t like the food I knew that I would appreciate this place.
Anyway, let me tell you about the food!
Since it’s a tapas place we ordered a bunch of the plates.
And to drink I ordered a white wine sangria, literally the best sangria I’ve ever had, it was made with coconut rum and these are dangerous. You can taste the alcohol but it’s so sweet and smooth that if you’re not paying attention you will be drunk in no time.
Smoked Gouda Nachos with seafood = Absolutely incredible, it was with a crab and shrimp and was gone in a second.
Hand cut fries= great! With the fries you can chose 2 sauces out of about maybe 10 or 12. We tried creamy parmesan and spicy aioli with one order and the other order we got dill feta and jalapeno. All the sauces were so good.
Spinach and black bean quesadilla= this one was just average but I think it was because I’m not the biggest fan of spinach.
My brother got chicken and waffles, I only tried the waffles and LET ME TELL YOU. So soft and sweet, seriously I need this recipe and a waffle maker.
To finish we ordered raspberry crème brulee and it was the perfect end to this meal.
This is a MUST go place if you’re ever in the CSRA. I don’t really have any negative criticism for this place, I really enjoyed it and I loved our fun waitress.
I hope you guys have a great Tuesday!
