We fly into this restaurant many times and usually have decent lunches. Not this time, I ordered the special. POPCORN shrimp with clam chowder. The shrimp were tiny salad shrimp coated in thick breading and fried to a crisp! It was not good! They do better with hamburgers and plain fare. Stay away from fried anything in my opinion.!

The food was well prepared and tasted good. The menu was varied and pretty standard diner food. The service was very good. It's a fun place to watch the planes land and take off. Most of the customers knew each other and the staff.

My friend and I went on a Saturday afternoon. It was nice, so we sat outside. Service was great. The menu was more extensive than I imagined. My friend had special dietary needs which were met without problem. Wine prices were very reasonable. She had a salad and chicken breast, I had a fish sandwich with WONDERFUL split pea soup.... More

The Flight Deck has good food and variety of food. It is right near the airport runway so you get a lot of aviation atmosphere there. It is not the biggest place in Salem but it is a good place to have dinner or drinks with friends.

This place hasnt changed much over the years. I think my only real complaint would be, the bar is too small. The wine list is minimal, as far as variety. But the over all selection is decent. The drinks are good, a standard bar pour. The view is always enjoyable. Watching planes coming and going!

Just a fun environment! And good, old fashioned breakfast. Love the building architecture, out of the hubbub of Salem, and watching the planes. Service was as good ad it gets. Food was good. We had breakfast and it was perfectly cooked.

I stopped in for breakfast on Sunday and I ordered the breakfast burrito and it was very good. It was big enough that it could feed two people. Coffee is good as always. The view of the airport out the widows while dining is nice touch.

My hubby and I had heard that the food was pretty good at this place so one afternoon we finally decided to give it a try for dinner. We arrived at about 6 PM on a Saturday. The place was crowded, but not overflowing. There was plenty of seating in the bar and outside on the "flight deck". People seemed... More
