The Oven Roasted Chicken Ciabatta was delicious with creamy spinach, goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes balsamic reduction. I just needed extra balsamic because the bread was thick and dry. Macaroni salad on the side was yummy too!

We were looking for a place to eat after visiting the Dali museum and The Hanger was suggested. It is across the street and we walked over. The restaurant offers a decent selection of sandwiches and salads. I had a burger and it was great and perfectly cooked medium rare as I wanted. You can look out over a small... More

Located near the Dali Museum, it's a must stop for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Surprisingly fabulous! I had to go there because I can see airplanes land and takeoff, but my wife now insists to go with me because the food is so fabulous. Dennis Gray Hamilton, Canada

Eating here is like going back in time. The restaurant is on the upper deck of the airport and you can sit outside and watch private planes coming in as you dine. No TSA people in uniform, it's really like the old days. Food is good and the staff is REALLY excellent and friendly.

We had a great time sitting on the open air patio watching the planes takeoff and land. The plane with the large banner dropping low to drop off the banner and catching the next banner was just as draw hopping as an airshow! Biplanes and small planes, all propeller driven, made us understand how risky early air flight must have... More

You come here because you want to see planes take off and land while you eat. It's right next to the St. Petersburg airport on the waterfront. It's also conveniently next to the Dali Museum; you can park in the museum lot, go to lunch, then go to the museum without moving your car. The menu is full of burgers,... More

Located across the parking lot from the Dali Museum. Prices are reasonable and has a wide menu selection, something for every type of eater. Good family-type restaurant.

Never a problem getting seating and not because it's not great. It is little known but a truest awesome spot for lunch, happy hours and parties. Food is good and you can watch planes and helicopters take off and land. Give it a shot.

We came here with friends and treated them to a great lunch at Hanger Restaurant. The restaurant is located near a lovely private terminal right on Tampa Bay. I had a wonderful burger and others had breakfast entries. The atmosphere is upscale and the service was particularly friendly.

Thank VAChuck
