Local charm and home-style cooking, with planes passing by. Fun!

Our lunches of Crab Louie Salads and soups hit the spot. The servers are a hoot. It's a friendly spot with lots to watch out the windows.

Based on reviews I've read on Trip Advisor I decided to have dinner at the Flight Deck restaurant. The other two people dining with me really enjoyed their burger and pasta dishes. I had the crab melt which was really good. However, after eating about 1/4th of it I pulled a long black hair out of it. When I notified... More

Richard, We are very sorry that your experience with Flight Deck was less than perfect, but we are glad that you went away happy. Yes, those type of things happen when you produce a lot of food, but we do not like that they happen. So we are thankful that you were not put off by it, and will be... 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

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. Plenty of parking and away from busy... 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
