Well How nice to have this restaurant just outside the terminal at the San Luis Obispo Airport. I have eaten here many times over the years, Today was special - I had lunch and dinner here today. Really! I went in for my noon flight and ended up leaving a 7 PM instead, rather than drag anyone through the details... More

Seeing a family member off to Florida via the SLO airport we stopped here for dinner. First if you can, get the outside if the weather is nice. You get to watch helicopters and single engine planes land and take off without it being too loud. Started with chicken wings. There was a cooked on seasoning but not a sloppy... More

The restaurant is adjacent to the airfield, and there is a great opportunity to sit outside and watch the aircraft landing and departing. Service is super friendly and it's a wonderful and relaxing place to spend some time. Pets are even allowed outside on the patio !

This airport restaurant has been consistently good for over a decade. (It was sold a few years ago, but the menu and quality are unchanged.) The sandwiches are the main draw, although the "lite fare" quesadilla appetizer is a meal in itself (and one of the cheapest things on the menu...) The sandwiches come with french fries or other sides--try... More

The restaurant is located a short walk from the main terminal. The main parking lot is in between. The restaurant gives parking vouchers for this area. The view from any table is awesome, and they have a outdoor patio that overlooks an aeea of the tarmac between the tower and the restaurant. You are facing south, and you can watch... More

We flew in on a friends plane for lunch and were very happily surprised to find all the food was rather tasty. A very good burger.

So I had an unexpected emergency which necessitated me turning right around and returning to Phoenix. At any rate the earliest flight I could get was 7 hours later so what to do?? Well went over to the Spirit of SLO and explained my situation. Not only did they accommodate me for about 5 hrs the food was equally as... More

We came by to try their Sunday Champagne Brunch on our anniversary and couldn't have been happier with the service, food and family atmosphere (family members work here) and yes we'll be back with our family on our next visit!

As an airline employee and this being the only restaurant option at the airport, major bummer. SBP is a high volume airport with many athletes, celebrities and wealthy people, it's very disappointing that this is the only option-especially when there are (always) SFO delays and passengers sit for hours. I ordered a way overpriced chicken marsala on my luchn break... More
