With just 2000 feet of turf runway and a pilots' lounge that's a throwback to the good old days, You'll see plenty of interesting planes and the people who fly them! Daring visitors can take a "thrill ride" in an historic 1930 New Standard open-air biplane and fly over the nearby beaches Hampton Airfield has had continuous Piper Cub training since 1946.

This little diamond in the rough is the perfect place for breakfast! Great atmosphere inside & it's nice to see the 'regulars' hanging out. Good service & good food!!

Love going here with the grankids in the spring summer or fall. Sit outside and let them watch the planes. Good breakfast. A little expensive. Service is spotty especially if it's busy.

Good breakfast and lunch fare, friendly service. Watch the small planes come in to land and take off on the grassy airfield. Go up as a passenger for a flight around the field, Twelve years old and up. Enjoy an ice cream cone from the old fashioned " diner " style trailer parked by the grassy runway.

I'm a Harley rider, and this gem of a restaurant is just a few hundred yards' walk from Seacoast Harley-Davidson. Just the place to eat when the bike is being worked on. I'm an aviation nut, so the hanging models and actual airfield complete with Savonius rotor-type wind generator keep my ADD at bay while my wife and I enjoy... More

Waited 1/2 hour for breakfast and left after others who were seated after us were served. Called the next day and talked to the owner and he said his head waitress was out that day and things were slow. I mentioned the staff was bunching up outside and inside and caused more confusion. He said he would try to make... More

Lots of fun! Great for families with small children. Stopped in for breakfast one morning and ended up staying for most of the day. Breakfast was great! Typical diner food. Service was friendly and fast. The day we stopped in the Hampton Airfield was doing their annual Flour Drop. It was tons of fun to watch. Two members of our... More

Have some breakfast on the deck and then Take a ride on a bi-plane! It's great fun! And don't forget to pick the brains of the pilots hanging around... they have lots of experience and wonderful stories to tell....

While traveling with my husband along the NH seacoast, I looked up to see a biplane: "I've always wanted to do that." Using the magic of the i-phone we managed to contact the Hampton Airfield. When I called to ask if we could fly "um, like now?" a gentleman graciously said, "come on over; you can be up in the... More

First we went to the Airfield restaurant where you can get breakfast/lunch at outdoor tables and watch small planes takeoff and land. We saw this old Bi-Plane take off and gluide in for a landing. My wife thought it would be a nice present for her. I gathered brochure and called at a later day for reservations and found they... More

This is a good place to go for a nice breakfast if you like to watch small planes take off and land. The food is okay...the coffee, not so much.
