This place is recently reopened and a local find. It's literally in the airport but is fine dining. Great nightly specials and serious wine list.

Great food. The "sole" and "short ribs" dinners are to die for. Nice contemporary atmosphere. Great drinks

Went here the other night for dinner and sat at the bar. It was not busy, about three other people sitting at the bar and a handful in the restaurant. We ordered the calamari as an appetizer. The portion of calamari we received was very small. And it wasn't good. It lacked taste and was chewy. The meal I ordered... More

My husband and I loved our dinner and it was quiet and relaxing. I would say the server needed someone to train her better. She was rushed and not paying attention and there was no need for this, because there was not a full house. Even though the service was poor, I would eat there again.

Had average service but our apps, dinners and drinks were excellent. Kind of slow to get to table but well worth the wait.

The Airport Grille was a pleasant surprise the other night. I was expecting a sleepy little fast food joint and was shocked to find a chic décor, a creative menu, a welcoming bar and great views. The bartender recommended one of the specials ( thanks Amanda ) , a rib eye steak along with a quinoa salad. Moderately priced and... More

This place is a nice change to the other monotonous chains in the local area. I went a few weeks ago on a rainy Sunday afternoon and the place was empty. The food was delicious and being right next to the tarmac, the view was out of this world. Everything we had was delicious but I am still drooling over... More

Been to Airport Grille several times in last few years, great place with great views of Airport, lately however they must be experiencing a bit of turbulence, as word around is food not what it once was. We tried again this past weekend and we were pleasantly surprised as our group had nothing but great things to say regarding our... More

I really liked the trendy upscale atmosphere as noted in another review. We went for lunch and the place was relatively quiet... with a few business folks coming in for a meeting. I'm not sure how busy the airport is, but it looks like a fun place to watch airplanes. The service was good. The food was good... although the... More

My husband and I had a great first visit to this restaurant and we will go back. The interior design is trendy and upscale, with three different seating locations. We were in the traditional restaurant seating area. There is a bar, and judging by the number of people who came and went it's a popular place for food and drink.... More
