What a crazy spot! Everything airplane related one can think of including jet sounds piped into the downstairs men’s room. The plane itself is the width of a tanker which is big enough for booths on both sides. The wait for our food was a...More

I would recommend making reservations. We could not dine in the plane itself as it was full. Not nearly as cool as eating in the 1953 plane! Atmosphere was super interesting. Food was ok... nothing special. Fun place to go w/ tourists!

There aren't many places you can go and dine inside an airplane. The food selection and quality was quite good.

Went with a group of Air Force folks after a tour of the WWII aviation museum, perfect place for lunch. The dining areas are imaginatively decorated with all things aeronautical, a lot of great memorabilia, and the wait staff is dressed in different air-themed outfits....More

Definitely a fun place to dine. built around a huge airplane and filled with aeronautical memorabilia. The wait staff are "pilots" and everyone is in airline style garb and plays the part of staff on an airplane. They are more than happy to tell you...More

A delightful setting with loads of aviation memorabilia. You can actually sit and dine IN the airplane (An Air Force KC-97). The menu is okay without a huge number of choices. Service was great, the food good. Seating is also available in the restaurant. Something...More
