“Good Food & Great Entertainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

Airport Grille is at the New Bedford Regional Airport. Good selection of appetizers, main course & desserts. Food was good - a bit on the pricey side. Entertainment was awesome!
South Coast Jazz Orchestra performed that night.

“Nice luncheon venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Went to Airport Grille with a sales associate and had a wonderful, relaxing, enjoyable lunch. Great variety of menu items and have had consistent quality and flavor during each visit.
Bar area is very unique and provides a perfect spot for dining, hor d'oeurves or after work cocktails.
Worth the trip!!!

“A nice surprise in an unlikely location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

Three of us had an early New Years Eve dinner at the Airport Grille, our first visit. The restaurant in within the main terminal of the New Bedford Airport, a small regional facility. The restaurant's modern decor is a beautiful counterpoint to the blue lighted runway visible through the large windows. We were seated by a window and really enjoyed the night time view.

We shared the Calamari for a starter. Quite good with a side of marinara and some really hot pickled peppers. I had the Veal Marsala served with risotto. My son chose the Scallops and his girl ordered the Salmon. My dish was good as was the Salmon but I believe my son's Scallops were the winner on our table. They had a perfect seer with a smoky hint and his Brussels Sprouts (never much of a favorite) were amazingly good!

We split two Brownie Sundaes for dessert with coffee. They make their own Ice Cream with milk from a local dairy. A large scoop of vanilla ice cream is served on a warm brownie which is resting in a caramel sauce. Wow, I would consider just coming in for coffee and dessert!

I like that the Airport Grille strives to use local products. I believe the quality ingredients show in the end result. A nice surprise in an unlikely location!

“What a birthday dinner!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2011

We got the recommendation for this place from a friend, so I made reservations. We were a little late, but were seated promptly. The menu is wonderful...I had the asian salad for a starter, Airport Grille steak with onion/bacon jam with sides of grilled asparagus and brussel sprouts. Wonderful, nicely done...right to order. My husband had crab cakes that were to die for!! They were very busy but that didn't stop the nice young guy acting as maitre 'd to write up directions for us to get us to our theater date on time. Over and above the call of duty.! The atmosphere was busy but not noisy. The decor is modern and chic. One expects "chain" food in an airport, certainly not this kind of fine dining. This is a gem!! We will return.

“Always a very good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2011

Six of us went to dinner here recently, and everyone enjoyed their meals and service. The pork chop was gorgeous! and perfectly done. My spinach/pear/walnut/goat cheese salad w/bistro steak slices (excellent) was very tasty, large, and satisfying. Fish & chips dish was magnificent, as were the other fish dishes. They make good drinks, and have wine by the glass at reasonable prices. Each couple paid about $70 including tax & tip. The decor, since their re-do, is really nice, and is a pleasant surprise as it's housed in New Bedford's small airport.
Highly recommend!
