Standard fare, burgers, sandwiches, wings. We hoped for breakfast but sadly got there a little too late. If you're into airplanes this is a good place to stop.

WE took our grandchildren there for dinner. The food was average and the service was good. My wife got a salad that was almost all lettuce and not very interesting or tasting. The children thought the food was OK. But the airport lights at night were cool and the restaurant has a nice aviation theme with many models hanging from... More

Comfortable little restaurant/bar. The burgers are good and salads are worth the value. There is a view of the runway at Chester County airport. The restaurant is located in the tiny airport.

This is a nice place to have a quiet meal, decent food and drink, with a view of the airport runway with airplanes taking off and landing. Especially fun for kids.

One of the best airport restaurants I've visited. On the always quaint and relaxed Coatesville Airport you can enjoy a wide variety of menu selections and the coffee and tea are great. Some of the best Clam Chowder and Onion Soup along with a wide selection of burgers and steaks along with their lunch specials makes this little restaurant a... More

Good food. Good prices. Could use an updated look, some of the booths need repair. They could use a bigger sign. We always forget about this local spot.

Located in the Chester County airport, this neat little restaurant is located with views of the runway (get a window seat). Lots of private plane taking off and landing on a Saturday,which offers an interesting backdrop to lunch. The sandwiches were very good and better than I expected. Fun décor with aeronautical models and pictures. Recommended

Get there early for a weekend breakfast to get a window seat- if you or your kids are interested in airplanes, it's a great spot. :)
