The food was good, nothing amazing - but good for sure. They didn't have ice cream, so we couldn't order the milkshakes we wanted to. The food took a long time to get, but the waitress was nice, and she kept our sodas and waters...More

We had heard about Bee Bops as an Authentic Diner and wanted to give it a try. We went in during the 8 pm hour, and there were only 2 other people there. It almost looked like they were closing. We found a booth, and...More

I are here last night and was pleasantly surprised. The service was attentive (I sat at the counter), the music was great throwback to classic 60s and Motown, and the food was better than many chain burgers. The real treat was the fresh squeezed lemonade....More

I've been here three times. Not had a good experience yet. Service is always slow and food is suspect. People preparing the food are not good at it. I'd recommend somewhere else. Don't waste your time.

I had a less than pleasurable experience here for lunch... service was eh, food was not good (even for a diner) and atmosphere felt tired. With all the great options in Owensboro, not going back.

I ate here on Saturday night on my way to an event the Owensboro Riverpark Center. It is a small local place that came recommended by the hotel where I was staying. It is right out of the 50’s. There is a large counter that...More

Knowing this was a locally owned restaurant, we were looking forward to trying Bee Bops. We visited on a weeknight evening. Although there was still over an hour until closing the vibe was one of "can't wait to go home." I had the basic burger...More
