Food is good , love the fried shrimp, good service , is a casual place with a nice menu for this type of restaurant. Waits can be long sometimes as they don't take reservations and seem to always be busy, obviously doing something right.

This place is right at Schaumburg airport. You can eat and watch the planes takeoff and land. Quite an extensive menu. All choices are very tasty. An enjoyable experience. Decor is airline related. I don't think you can go wrong. Try it, you'll like it.
