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.

With the suggestions of other Tripadvisor members, we stopped here for lunch. Glad we did. What a nice surprise. Almost every table was full. Not too many private planes taking off or landing, but it was still nice. Food was very good and hot. Service was very good and always with a smile... read more

Who would expect a good restaurant at the airport in Salem? With large windows, it is fun to sit here and watch the activity on the runway (some planes appear to taxi in just for lunch here), while enjoying a drink from the bar or a tasty meal. While the food is not extraordinary, it is certainly fine - and... More

I enjoy eating lunch at Flight Deck which is located at the Salem airport. The quality of the food has significantly improved and the menu expanded. They are also known for their breakfast. A great place to eat if you enjoy watching the flight operations at the airport.

We are working in the area and eat here almost everyday for lunch. The food is great. The staff is always friendly and the service is great. You have to try it.

This award-winning restaurant is located at Salem's public airport and you can watch a lot of private-plane landings and takeoffs and observe the changing weather in our area through tall windows that face the mountains in the distance.. Breakfast is served only on weekends, but there are good choices. This is mainly a lunch-time (and early dinner) restaurant and bar... More

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
