Nice view of the airport and water runways for the pontoon planes. The prime rib bites were good and the local beer selection was good too.

We did not realize that the Fairbanks Airport has very limited food options for travelers until we were there. You can get high priced, low quality food. They had some sandwiches, and items like personal pizzas, nachos, and buffalo wings. Keep your expectations low and you will be satisfied.

You are kind of a captive customer for this place. The food is overpriced like all airport food and the quality is only satisfactory, at best. If you can hang on and have a few minutes at the Anchorage airport between flights, you'll have better choices.

It took a while going back and forth between the two eateries, but finally I got my grilled cheese and ham sandwich with a dill pickle, and a beer all for $13.50. Not a bad price. I don't think I'd have some of the other items on the menu such as the pizza. The server is quirky and funny and... More

I ordered an individual pepperoni pizza, chips and soda. The person at the counter made a point saying the pizzas were toasted and not microwaved; unfortunately that did not make them edible. If this had been a blindfolded taste test I would not have known what I was trying; the 'pizza' had a chemical taste that made it inedible. I... More

It is a rather quiet and clean airport, probably due to the limited flights that comes in everyday. There are lotsa car-rental counter in the airport if you need one. I didn't like the fact that there are no food or restaurants before checking-in. There is only 1-3 café after we check-in.

This is a very small airport. The workers were all so friendly and helpful. Often times airport workers are grumpy and just don't want to be there at all. The lady working behind the coffee counter was so nice I gave her a tip, which I often skip on counter service.

I like the ease of getting in and out. Lines are never too long and even at the off chance you are running a bit late the ticket counters can usually accommodate you as the airports small. Only gripe is the food options. This airport could use a full service restaurant.
