I have mixed feelings about this place. One of the chefs was sneezing a lot. We have a new sick leave requirement in Oregon. Stay home, please! The interior is worn and dated. Worn tables, dirty carpet, worn and old plates. Dirty windows. I did like all of the planes hanging from the ceiling. Four of us arrived on a... More

The burgers are delicious along with tater tots! Salads are fine and menu has a nice variety of options including light meals. We go almost monthly. Friendly staff and fun to watch airplanes come and go at our small airport.

I take my wife to lunch about once a month and we really enjoy the service we get especially from Paul who works in the Bar. We like the tall tables in there and he is always quick to get our drinks and order. The food is good although a bit on the higher priced side. We do enjoy the... More

There is a lot of construction in the area now, even our GPS was confused. But we knew it was at the general aviation airport somewhere and we found it, at last. A lucky find for us! My husband said it was the best fish and chips he ever ate! The view of airplanes and runways outside the big glass... More

Flight deck is a great place to eat for lunch. The service is always good and the food is good. The road construction should not keep you from going. It is fun to watch the airplanes, so if you have kids they will enjoy it

Great restaurant overlooking Salem airport. Great breakfast. In fact, not one item on the menu is bad. The scrambler breakfast is awesome. Pancakes are awesome. It is out of the way but what a great place to grab breakfast or lunch.

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.
