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.

Who knew???

Wow. Stumbled upon this hidden gem. Sat at the bar for lunch. Talk about a room with a view. The tini airport runway sits right there. If you like watching planes take off and enjoy great food then this is a perfect spot. The cost was awesome. Chicken Marsala for $8 for lunch. The fish and chips... read 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

This is my second trip to the Airport Grille. It's a wonderful find. Quiet with a comfortable atmosphere. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The food is quite good. I had the clam chowder and a spinach salad. The clam chowder was wonderful! It's a great place to go for a quiet evening.

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
