I have been here many times by air and by car, Great destination for breakfast. For pilots, the FBO is pretty awesome. For aviator enthusiasts, the tables outside are nice and offer a good view of the runways.

My husband and I ate here on Sunday noon, October 14, 2012. I noticed upon walking in even though they were not busy my table had not been thoroughly wiped off, as were many of the unoccupied tables. We ordered the chicken fried chicken. I got two vegetables and the chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes. The steak was pretty... More

The best part of this restaurant is the limited view of the runway at Bartow airport, it goes down hill from there. The food was just average and my waitress needs a new job and a new attitude. The menu is very limited, serves only breakfast & lunch...they ran me out and closed at 1:45 pm. You can fly by... More

Recently we went to the low Country Shrimp Boil and really enjoyed it. The one flaw was the salad bar which was included in the meal. The salad was brown with lots of hard ribs in the lettuce. The croutons were stale. A very limited salad bar. We would go again for the shrimp but would skip the salad bar.

They were warm and "possibly" between them both were 3 eggs total. She ordered grits and a biscuit. Her grits were cold, but her biscuit was warm and OK. I... More

I apologize for both the food and the service.I would have written earlier, I did not know that this review site existed until a few days ago! We have made many changes to the wait staff since the early part of May. I am surprised at the comments on the food as it is usually of high quality. When I... More
