Haven't had a bad meal here. Nice atmosphere, lots of food. A good menu mix, something for everyone. Lots of windows which is fun being at the local airport. Wish there were more places like this, instead of the boring chain restaurants.

I feel ripped off having eaten here. We have not been to this place in a couple months, and we certainly won't be back after this visit. We got the loaded tater tots as an appetizer. Fast food places do a better job! Watered down cheese and fake bacon bits- insulting. Our meals too, were not up to par and... More

There are very few places you can you go and eat a great lunch, with fun, playful ambiance while airplanes are taking off and landing in front of you! The children in our family are always happy when we take them there and we love the food and beverage selections. Our waitress was adorable and attentive. They also have a... More

Held an airplane themed baby shower for our daughter here and the setting is perfect with tons of airplane decor and even the real thing tied down by the runway. The staff is very easy to work with during planning and at the actual event the service was excellent. We got many great compliments on the food. We selected their... More

This restaurant is fun and has great food. The hundred dollar burger is big and delicious. We had a party of 6. They sat us in 30 minutes. The service was great! You get a large portion of food for the price. I highly recommend this place!

Let us start by saying that our server, Christian, was awesome; his family should be proud. The food: Nothing fancy; no croutons or bread sticks..just good food. We had the pot roast: moderate size serving which was tender. The accompanying homemade mashed potatoes were very good but a bit toward the luke warm side. Hubby had prime rib sandwich with... More

Once again a service nightmare. Thursdays are $4 margaritas. Server # 1 was ready to take our frozen margarita order. Server # 2 who "replaced" him came up with the fine print. Just plain and lime only. (Didn't say that on the menu..and now servers are creating rules on their own.) Oops...they lost four alcohol orders! We all drink water!!!... More

Haven't been here in at least 10 years, used to go with my parents when I was younger. Went with my boyfriend yesterday. Had the lobster nachos and lobster roll. Both were really good! I'm in Florida most of the summer so I was worried about how the lobster roll would compare to the seafood I usually eat but it... More
