“Love the airplanes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Unless you're a fish the only two ways out here are the ferry or flying. I like the a window seats inside or on warmer nicer day to sit outside and watch the airplanes come and go. Can get a bit noisy around weekends and holidays but adds to the experience if you like the planes. Service can get a little slow also but the food is good. I usually stick to breakfast but I'm sure lunch will hit the spot also. You can walk into town but if you choose a taxi it will cost you about $10. Tshirts are for sale, maybe I'll get one next time.

“Fun breakfast adventure!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

This place is off the beaten path & actually alongside a runway. The atmosphere watching all the planes can't be beat. Good thing because this place is packed & getting your food takes forever! But...you are on vacation so who cares. Outside seating is the best, but an even longer wait.

The portions are huge, diner style. Breakfast was delicious but I'd like to stop in for lunch & try their award winning chowder. They even sell it to go so it must be good! If you have the time, stop by here for sure.

“Very nice spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

My husband and i were biking around and were very hungrey and had heard about the airport diner. It was around 2:40 when we got there and when the waitress came over she said that she closed in 20 min and to get things rolling. she was very nice. i felt bad because i know what it is like when i want to go home and there are the last min customers. she told us not to worry and to eat. it was the fastest i ever ate but she told us to take our time b/c she still had to clean up. it was a nice place to stop and they were very great to take care of us.

“Great Diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Great spicy chilli, tuna melt and a wonderful breakfast selection. Enjoyed watching the planes on the park benches outside. Service was great and included 3 coffee refills.

“Great Place off the ocean path...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

We stopped here for lunch the other day. We were out for a bikeride around the island and this was close by. Nothing fancy but their clam chowder is amazing!!! It was fun to watch the planes come in and take off while eating lunch. Something different when you do not want to be at the beach.
