Its an airport cafe

Its not bad food fare. Not great but always consistent. Service is usually good with the occasional hiccup. Great for a quick lunch if you are around Flight Safety or Gulfstream Aerospace. Burgers and sandwich stuff is fairly good.

I ate at this location and had a waitress named Jessica. I travel and eat out a lot and she was one of the best servers that has ever waited on me. The food and the menu choices really had nothing good on the menu. The chicken was so tough that I could not eat it. But with service this... More

Really cosy, always open, good service. I was solo but enjoyed the place with tv displaying every kind of sport while eating.

So here we are at Long Beach Airport. Despite various hideous add-ons, Long Beach's beautiful Art Deco terminal still survives intact with the original mosaic floors - awesome. What is also awesome is the Aviation Legends bar/restaurant, where for the same price as a meal at Denny's you can have a delicious, well presented home cooked meal. Naturally we plumped... More

Escape the chaos of Long Beach Airport and enjoy a good meal. We had delicious salads and burgers and about the best French fries ever. Our server was attentive and good. We were seeing good friends off and did not want to worry about being late, hence we chose to eat right at the airport. We were happy with our... More

We had dinner after an evening arrival. Our waitress forgot our drinks, got my order wrong and was nowhere to be seen when drinks needed refilling. I've enjoyed the food here previously, but am disappointed by the poor service.

The serving staff was pleasant and attentive; and the "Ultimate Omelette" was excellent. The Bloody Mary's were surprisingly good (I was flying as a passenger only). The restaurant was not crowded, but the noise level was high. The voices of women seated at the bar echoed off the ceiling and drowned-out conversations at other tables. The biggest disappointment is that... More

This restaurant was adaquate for a meal in an airport when you need to kill an hour. For a drink, salad and tip, it will cost you $30 for one person. Service was slow and the meal was decent. There isn't much of any urgency with the staff but I wasn't in any rush. I wouldn't recommend if you have... More

We were looking for a meal to fit within our hour+ of waiting at LGB. We saw the sign to this place and found it to be well above the usual airport quality. Service was good, food was great, with an array of choices and not extraordinarily expensive. Service was courteous and prompt, and there was a view to boot.

Make sure you have enough time to get through security. You'd probably be better off waiting until you are inside terminal boarding areas to eat
