In between flights I stopped here and had a (Blackened) Chicken & Cheddar Sandwich on a brioche roll. The chicken was smothered in BBQ sauce - a piece I broke off was tasteless so the sauce helped. The cheese stringy and bacon chewy but the roll was delicious, moist and full of flavour. What was blackened, I'm not sure -... More

We had a nice server, food was above average. Prices were on the high side but we were not going back out once we arrived. Happy hour has bargains on draft beers, wines. Food had good portions.

Large menu and quick friendly service. If you need to eat before your flight, this is a great and "cute" place to stop. Much better than most fast food restaurants, the food is fresh, a little pricey like most airport food, but at least it is delicious and plentiful.

The food was good, but when we paid, the beer was 12 $. That is more expensive than any draft beer we have ever had. Even in the good places on NYC!

Certainly better than a fast food spot. Decent menu selection and fast service. Good draft beer selection. Mushroom Swiss cheese burger was good. Cooked as requested bConvenient for sending off folks on gates B60-65. Not sure of food options after security. Overall a good place to recharge before security. Or while dropping off departing passengers.

At an airport I'd expect fast service, so we weren't surprised when we got a table immediately. There were hardly any other customers and we were wondering why. When we had been waiting for 10-15 minutes for somebody to get our order we understood the reason and left.

The worst possible experience and food! The hot sandwich with gravy was cold, the mentioned fat sliced Texan bread was a typ of "Wonderbread". The service was slower than rush hour traffic over from Manhattan... Don't waste your time and money here!

Is nothing that i can say about this place because it is an airport diner what can you expect when you go there just to fill your belly with something before departure.We had no choice because of the delay.Typical airport food expensive and not good what else can i say.
