“Great Food But Not Worth the LONG Wait”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Ate breakfast here this morning, we have flown in and eaten breakfast here several times and always got great food and great service. Today we had to wait almost an hour on our food. I am pretty petite and I HAVE to eat something for breakfast….we waited so long I started getting sick and my husband had to go in search of SOMETHING for me to eat, he came back with some crackers, it was all they would give him. I could not even get my coffee refilled, he had to go in search of coffee for me too. The restaurant was NOT busy. The few tables around us that were occupied were all complaining because none of them were getting timely food either. This is especially a problem at an airport, where many people are on tight schedules! When we FINALLY got our food it was great, tasty and hot, but by then the experience was sorta ruined. We agreed if we go again we’ll bring some food with us in case we have a nother long wait. Seems like we should not have to plan to so this at a RESTAURANT!

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback and letting us know of your displeasure on our locally owned and operated business. We realize we are far from perfect and wanted to let you know that we will continue to work hard and improve the restaurant in all areas as we continue forward. Thank you for giving us a chance, we hope you try us again in the near future.

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

My wife and I enjoy flying here for breakfast. The folks at the airport itself are always very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is excellent, great service and food. They are reputed to have an outstanding Sunday brunch, but we haven't had the opportunity too try it yet.

“Great Atmoshpere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

The restaurant has looked the same for 30 years but I still like it unchanged. The food is good but a little overpriced. I like their lasagna. Probably the best Italian food in Decatur.
