Stopped in for a late lunch after the cog-railway ride to Pikes Peak. The soup of the day was a creamy tomato basil. Delicious! Ordered a burger. It came with potato wedges. They were really thick. Too thick for my liking. I indicated that I was really hungry, but those were not appealing and I was offered the pub chips... More

We had great advice from the Golden Bee staff about what time to come on this busy day and were quickly seated. There was a traditional Thanksgiving meal for those who wanted it (outstanding cranberry creation - though all was perfect!) and a full menu for those who wanted something else. Our waitress was so friendly and pointed out features... More

Went in around 1230 and it was crazy busy but we were seated very quickly at the bar, delicious mule and beers. Ordered the oysters shucked to order, fresh zingy horseradish, yummy pretzels and cheese, chicken tika masala was an English version of masala that was tasty but no spice to it. Would definitely go back

So the food was good, not a gastro pub, but it was good enough and the atmosphere was lively. Good selection of beers and ales including a lovely Guinness as well as Boddingtons and Bass. So good enough for some thirst quenching pub food.

Service was great, but the food was good. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. The walk from the hotel lobby is very quick. The holiday lights made it very pretty for an even walk and seeing the swans on the lake was wonderful. The view were great overall!

I have been going to the Golden Bee at Christmastime for years and years. For the most part, things just keep getting better. The menu now is better and the food quality is better. The drinks and service are excellent and the atmosphere is outstanding. More bees, please! The only thing I might say is that the recent singer doesn't... More

We appreciate being seated even though our open table reservation didn't go through. The pork appy was a highlight as well as the tart cherry dessert. The cod was very flavourful.

In between our tour through the Garden of the Gods and visit to the Manitou Springs Cliff Dwellings, we enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Golden Bee. The initial greeters could have been a tad more welcoming. I felt like we were an interruption. When we were shown to our table, I nearly asked for a different one, as ours... More
