Stopped in with friends as we were riding motorcycles to the American Helicopter Museum. Thought we'd keep the theme going. Really cool to sit and eat and watch the planes roll in and out. At the time we went they were doing breakfast so that's what we had. Nothing fancy but the food and the prices were very good. Place... More

This is a really near place to take the kids...especially in nice weather. The restaurant is right next to the runway at the Chester County Airport so the kids can watch the planes take off & land. They love it along with all the great big models of all the old planes hanging from the ceiling. All that and terrific... More

I have always enjoyed lunches here, close to the runways so you can see take-offs and landings. Food has always been good pub fare, service is as yoould like it, attentive but not overbearing. A good place to relax.

From time to time I meet a friend here on Wednesday night for half-price wings and the best onion soup ever. This little gem also has good burgers, Reubens and BLTs at lunh time. Service is always friendly and efficient. I haven't had an entree type evening meal here. Added bonus is being able to watch the planes and helicopters... More

This place has great wings. Their jet engine sauce is not afraid to bring the heat. It is not like other wing joints. The wings are crispy and the beer is cold. Not much more to ask.

Good food in a fun atmosphere at this small airport. The food was reasonably priced and the portions were ample. I was in the Philadelphia area so I had to haev a cheesesteak, and it was excellent. The waitstaff were friendly and attentive.

We went to the flying machine café today March 10, 2013 with seven airplanes from Frederick Maryland. Despite being inundated by us and others the waitress did a great job taking care of us and serving breakfast. The food was good, reasonably priced and the place is neat with a view of the runway and the aviation décor. We were... More
