Flight Deck Restaurant is located right on the Salem Airport with a parking lot for cars and one for airplanes! So you can drive-in or fly-in to enjoy our spectacular view, delicious Northwest American food, cold or hot beverages all with excellent service. Our location has windows on three sides of the building giving our guests a panoramic view of the Salem Airport and Cascade mountains. Our vaulted ceilings are graced with many model airplanes to complete the aviation theme.

Food was average and beer selection limited. View of airport was nice but not much action at the small airstrip.

four of us stopped by for dinner about 7:30p.m. They have a small variety of on tap beer but what they have is well represented. We didn't want to have a heavy meal so we had burgers and french dips. It was all very tasty and yummy. We will be back again.

I've never been disappointed here. We get out to salem every 4-6 weeks. We try and get to the Fight Deck at least once a visit. Just about everything we try here has been very good. I would definitely recommend it. The staff is very friendly, and always willing to help make your experience a good one

Flew down to Salem just to try this place out. One of the few fly in restaurants still in business! Great fish burger, and chicken strips. Very convenient for pilots. Nice atmosphere.

Flight Deck is a small restaurant, easily overlooked, sitting as it does just north of the Salem Airport entrance. But don't! The breakfasts there are filling and tasty and the head cook comes up with some delicious specials. The Flight Desk Scramble is everyone's favorite, though my nephews are HUGE fans of the 747 Breakfast Burritos, I could barely eat... More

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....

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.
