We found this place on TripAdvisor and both the food and service were excellent. We stopped food lunch. The pancakes were great. Watch planes taking off from the windows.

When planning your bike path, I would definitely advise this air field as a stop. Also the small cafe on the premise is a wonder spot for a quick bite while watching the small aircraft take off and land.

Good outside seating with a basic pub style menu. Service was good, wish I had opted for something other than scallop plate which was fried and for me, too greasy. The pulled pork sandwich, salads, and cheeseburgers that others in our group had looked very nice. They have a nice selection of beers and wines, and the view, atmosphere on... More

Take a biplane tour of MV (not cheap!) and have a meal at the Right Fork Diner right there. The Cobb Salad is fantastic.

plane rides are a bit expensive, the restaurant there is small, food took forever to make it to the table.

Want to watch a couple of mini cubs scramble down the airfield? How do these little planes ever get off the ground? Fun to watch as they swing back and forth and then finally make it.

Wonderful experience to be right next to the bi-planes as they fire up and take off, and fun to see them swoop over the restaurant and land. The Katama Airfield Restaurant is jammed for breakfast on the weekends for its location and fun for the kids and the very good diner type food, and great servers.

You land on a grass strip and taxi to the restaurant to get your scallops and burgers (which are so friggin' good people come here to this quiet beach for them) and you taxi over to the beach, tie down, and spend a day of fun in the sun. Aces all around. Amazing scene. Do it!

While I sat on the beach with my friend our husbands went over to Katama Airfield. When they returned we found out they went for a ride on a WWII prop plane, flew over the beach and saw us, and had an amazing view of the island! I wonder if I would have gone????

Any ride you want to take can happen there, from single engine, gliders, and sliders! It is very laid back and close to Winnetu
