Use girls went on a wednesday evening after work. The specialty drinks list was plentiful. I got the 'smooth landing" and it was delicious. The pot roast with mashed potatoes was good as was the BBQ pork sandwich. Will return

I bought a deal on Groupon to check this place out for the first time. My toddler loved being able to watch the planes and helicopters come and go, but the novelty wore off there. The food was tasteless, the fries stale, the service mediocre. $3 for a soft drink! Would not have paid full price to eat here. When... More

We went to Pilot Pete's over the weekend and had a great time. We were able to sit right next to the window by the runway and the kids had a blast watching the planes take off and land. They also asked lots of questions as to why the people were walking around the planes before they got in and... More

I have been here before as there are often times Groupons. This place is the best kept secret. The food is delicous, well priced and the quantity is surreal. We always walk out more impressed than the last time we were there. The service is amazing and the place is always jam packed but you never feel rushed or ignored.... More

Not many people are aware that there's a restaurant in the Schaumburg airport - but there is, and it's really good! We love the all you can eat fish... but pretty much everything is delicious! I've never been disappointed - and really enjoy their Mexican Cobb Salad. In fact, think it's time to go there to have one again soon!... More

We have been patrons for years, as have many friends, and the classic dishes like the pot roast, ribs and pan bakes have always been very good. and atmosphere/theme unique. But...it seems the appetizer preparation has really changed. In the past the huge onion rings and lobster nachos were a hit so this time we tried the Jumbo Chicken Wings... More

We enjoyed the unique experience on 12.26 around 530 pm. Few minute wait for a table. Food was good we ordered mostly pasta (kids buttered noodles, kids spaghetti meatball and chicken mac and cheese. The mac and cheese needed some extra flavoring salt pepper and extra parmesan but was good. We also tried because of a groupon and that is... More

Our family dined on Friday, December 19th, and was amazed by the unique dining experience, the planes coming and going outside, and a Santa Claus on the premises when the little ones arrived. The waitress met all our requests to accommodate many special customized dining choices and the Groupon purchased for this dining experience was of great value. We will... More

The ten in our family ranging in age from 69 to 5 went here to celebrate Grandpa's birthday. The menu is extensive and varied. Watching the planes outside with the large windows was fun for the kids. Restaurant was busy, but service was good. We often attend after tournaments etc. at the Schaumburg Sports Complex next door.l
