I have become a regular for lunch at the Flight Deck. The food is great. The daily specials are always really good. You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. The soups are really good. They are made fresh daily and go really well by themselves or as a side to a sandwich or burger. I am always greeted... More

This was my first trip to Flight Deck. The restaurant is well signed, accessible, and has curb appeal. Parking is free, easy, close, and plentiful. The restaurant is handicap accessible. The menu is extensive and appealing. Hours are good. The theme is predictable aviation, with the smattering of aircraft models, photos, and picture windows overlooking the airport tarmac. Dining room... More

It is surprising how many people -- even Salem residents -- are unaware of this unpretentious but splendid little restaurant just south of the main terminal at Salem's municipal airport. Huge windows overlook the runways and offer as well panoramic views of the hills to the east of Salem. The menu is surprisingly varied for such a small establishment, and... More

We met for a business meeting at the restaurant. I was kinda skeptical, but the other 7 members of our party had been there before. They were all right. The food was excellent. Unfortunately I had my back to the runway (there are huge windows) and honestly I was a bit jealous of those on the other side of the... More

I took my husband here for a surprise lunch on his birthday because he loves airplanes. He loved it and the burgers we had were good too. The place could use some paint and the bathrooms need some work, but it seemed to be clean. We will be back.

Our lunches of Crab Louie Salads and soups hit the spot. The servers are a hoot. It's a friendly spot with lots to watch out the windows.

Based on reviews I've read on Trip Advisor I decided to have dinner at the Flight Deck restaurant. The other two people dining with me really enjoyed their burger and pasta dishes. I had the crab melt which was really good. However, after eating about 1/4th of it I pulled a long black hair out of it. When I notified... More

Who would expect a good restaurant at the airport in Salem? With large windows, it is fun to sit here and watch the activity on the runway (some planes appear to taxi in just for lunch here), while enjoying a drink from the bar or a tasty meal. While the food is not extraordinary, it is certainly fine - and... More

With the suggestions of other Tripadvisor members, we stopped here for lunch. Glad we did. What a nice surprise. Almost every table was full. Not too many private planes taking off or landing, but it was still nice. Food was very good and hot. Service was very good and always with a smile. Plenty of parking and away from busy... More
