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.

Hidden Gem, Great Food!

Went for dinner with the family after spending the afternoon at playground in NB airport right outside the restaurant. My wife had Fish and Chips which she said were cooked perfectly, and I had a Chicken Marsala, also very tasty! Decent kids menu as well with a few healthier options. Will certainly... read more

We celebrated a birthday here in early January. The atmosphere was inviting and our waiter John was very pleasant. We had the flat iron steak (cooked to our liking) and one of the specials which was grilled salmon topped with Granny Smith apple slices. The sides of mashed butternut squash and green beans added to the delicious tastes of the... More

Visited New Year's Eve, always happy in the past. This time we were not impressed. We ate at the bar and the waitress was a little over the top, nice but annoying. Food was ok, not impressive. Ribeye was thin and Brussels sprouts burnt. A couple of loud drunks at the bar should of been dealt with. We'll try again... More

Great decor, nice views of the runway, terrific waitstaff, but so so food. Can't say anything was bad, just nothing to compel any of our party of five for a return visit. Calamari appetizer was overcooked. My roasted sole was fine, but the accompanying risotto was undercooked and crunchy. The baked scrod, chicken marsala, steak au Poivre and the salmon... More

I was most shocked that it was truly located at the airport but don't let that deceive you. It's really cozy inside and the food is awesome. Nothing plain Jane about this place. Very creative menu. A must try!

WE had a seat by the window and could watch Cape Air come in. Attractive restaurant that features Jazz on Weekends. My wife loved her cocktail and the wine I had was very good. My wife had steak tips and I had veal marsala ... Great presentation! Lovely attentive waitress Amanda. We plan to be back in late September to... More

Working in the area sporadically on projects from 3-7 months, I always make my way to the AG when in the area. The staff is very friendly and attentive but not overbearing. First time in since last year today 8/09/15, and appreciate the consistency. The mussels are the best in the area with three varieties to chose from. I had... More

We have been to the Airport Grille on a few occasions and have to say we won't be in a hurry to return. Our server was very friendly and attentive and appetizers were great! Then main coarse. Our son and his friend had the cheeseburger which are always very good. The baked sole with stuffing was a horrible presentation of... More

Had a brunch for my daughter's baby shower for 30 people. It was fantastic! The manager Isaac was wonderful to work with, very accommodating and flexible with the menu. We had a very nice room in the back with white tablecloths and flowers on the tables at no extra cost. The brunch was extensive and delicious at a very reasonable... More
