This is one of the largest, best laid out brunch I had ever had the joy of seeing. It is delicious, prepared by pros who have been in the biz' for years, and displayed in a restaurant full of ambiance inside and out. We loved the various aircraft to feast our eyes on also. Quite an experience being so close... More

Food was good and there were a lot of options at the buffet. Cost was reasonable for the quality of the food. Enjoyed the view of planes landing at LAX. All of the planes on the lot were fascinating along with all of the historical pictures and stories throughout the building. If you love planes this place is for you.

Restaurant located near LAX airport final approach runway on aviation BLVD. There for lunch which was a buffet. Overall food was good w/ good service as required. What made the visit was to see the aviation museum that has several airplanes outside and a large collection of aviation photos arranged on their walls by era--WW 1, WW 22, Vietnam, etc--... More

We had the buffet. Restaurant was clean. Waiters were nice. Food was fair, dry and tasted packaged. They also had carving station and pasta station. Pasta was made to order. And was better tasting. People ordered off the lunch menu. Looked better. They have a limited menu for lunch. The view is fantastic. Can sit and watch an active runway.... More

We went to this restaurant for their 'Father's Day' brunch. The food was very good & they had a good selection. Their advertisement said "Dad's first beer is on us" but did not say the additional beer purchases were required!

A local monument to the great aircraft industry which was such an important part of the history of the surrounding area. Outside the building is a collection of old aircraft. The inside walls are covered with hundreds of photographs of historic aviation figures and aircraft. Window tables provide a great view of the aircraft on final approach to LAX only... More

We could see the aircraft from our hotel room on the 18th floor and walked there to find that it was a restaurant.Some at the front on plinths and others at the rear in the "garden". Fancied the Kalamari but it was only for the evening but the waiter(Boss?) said he would get some for us. It was not the... More

This hidden gem of a restaurant is tucked in directly in front of the runways at LAX and serves up a very enjoyable brunch. The parking is great (and free) and the grounds are green and well maintained. But the best part, according to my grandson, were all of the wonderful WWII era plane, watching the big planes landing, as... More

The food is very good, went to a catered buffet their salmon was excellent. But the planes rock, World War One and beyond aircraft all on static display. Inside the restaurant, walls are filled with pictures and displays of military/civilian aviation history. Also your right near the landing strip at LAX, this place is great fun.
