Earhart restaurant

Took mom there for Mothers Day 2013. It was a mess. The reservations were staged times for the buffet, but as the buffet wasn't ready overlaps occurred. The food promised in the price ($21) was not on the buffet so it was disappointing and more expensive than the food warranted

There were eight of us in our group and no one had a bad word to say about their choices. The service was excellent the atmosphere marvelous and the food was great. The view was out over the Lakeland Linder Airport with a fabulous Sunset to watch. The band that was playing was great with lots of people out of... More

Overlooking the Lakeland Airport, you can listen to pilots landing their planes (via headphones in booth), while you dine. I've only been there for lunch (2x), and each time the sandwiches have been very good. I found the waitress to be helpful & friendly, stopping by periodically to check on us. They serve a Sunday Brunch (both breakfast & lunch... More

MY wife and I went to Earharts today for their prime rib brunch. I have to say it was one of the best prime ribs I have had in a long while. The buffet is not overwhelming, but enough to keep most everyone happy. I had a nice omelette to start with sausages, cooked to perfection. The meat was awesome,... More

They opened just to accommodate our group of eleven on a Monday night and everyone gave it a thumbs up. My steak was perfectly cooked as ordered, tender, and juicy. Right on the airport with good views and some great airplane models and pics for decor

There was almost nothing good about our visit! They have a Friday special on fish and chips, which was pretty much inedible. I ate about two bites of fish, and when the watress took it away, she didn't even ask if there was a problem.The sweet potato fries were decent, but that was it. And it's expensive, especially for the... More

Pros: Reasonable Prices, Nice Airport View Cons: Airport's Not That Busy I had lunch here with some business colleagues on a weekday. It appeared to be a fairly slow day - there were a few other tables, but not too many. Our server was friendly and attentive; she took our orders and kept our drinks filled. Lunch had a typical...
