They are not located at the little airport anymore. Their new address is: 12721 Business Hwy 287, Fort Worth. Their new location is bigger and cleaner, however not as cool as eating inside the airport looking at the airplanes

We go here for brunch every year when we visit our friends in Fort Worth. It’s super casual so the kids love it and there is something to eat for everyone. Awesome grits and gravy and the Texas toast is oe fece! Not expensive and...the kids love watching the planes land.More

Our family loves the original Beacon Cafe at Hicks Airfield, so we were excited that another location opened nearby. I ordered food during the pandemic as a mother's day treat. The food as always did not disappoint. It was delicious! Just as good as the...other restaurant. The only issue I had was that in the middle of a pandemic no one was wearing a face mask. As a consumer this is important to me to feel that the restaurant is taking the proper precautions to not infect customers and employees. This was disappointing to the point that we haven't visited again. We will wait for life to go back to normal before we visit again. I wanted to support during this time that restaurants are struggling, but not willing to take any risks.More

Buffet brunch heaving with variety and quality is good, but a little pricey for the rustic cafe ($14.99). Expect limited parking and a 30-60 min wait on the weekends. Not tried it on a weekday so I can’t say. It was ok but not sure...I’ll go back.More

Best kept secret in Fort Worth. Located at Hicks Airport alongside the runway. Private planes pull into the parking lot beside your car. All there for an amazing brunch. A little pricey but definitely an experience. Whatever you do, treat yourself to a pineapple upside...down pancake. It is amazing!!!More

Wow! The minute I opened the door I was greeted with smiles and kind words , the owner just happened to be near to door and immediately stoped what she( Christie)was doing to welcome my family. The buffet was over the top then most restaurants,...variety was out of this world(Heavenly). Christie, had homemade biscuits and gravy my favorite, crips bacon and soft but very flavorable sausage, I can not forget about the fresh fruit, and all kinds of homemade cinnamon rolls. Everthing was very tastefully , serve was awesome, we will come back, possibly every Saturday.More

First, let me say that I'm not a picky eater. My husband and I went here expecting an improvement over the original owners, but to say we were disappointed would be an understatement. My husband had a cheeseburger and fries. The meat on the burger...was under-cooked. The fries had been previously fried and then put back in the grease to heat them up again. I ordered a chicken salad sandwich and a cup of fruit for my side. I'm not sure what I was served, but it wasn't chicken salad. It consisted of big chunks of cold grilled chicken with a few slivers of almonds between 2 slices of over-cooked dry toast. It was in-eatable. All I ate was the fruit, which was fresh and tasty.More

Best American pancakes I’ve ever eaten in my life!! I had the pineapple upside down and pecan ones I’m still dreaming of the pineapple upside down one, but unfortunately when I went back the next time breakfast was over so I couldn’t indulge myself and...had a cheddar cheese and bacon burger instead, boy can they make a meal taste good, that burger tasted like life itself!! This place deserves a visit if you are in the Fort Worth regionMore

This is truly a hidden gem. The weekends have a buffet style made to order stations. There is so much food to choose from and all of it is delicious. So fun watching the planes land and takeoff and park at the restaurant.

Planned to eat at the Hicks Airport location, but a buddy gave me a ride over to this one (airport location was closed today). Coffee, sausage and Pineapple Upside Down Pancake were all excellent! Will be back some other time and try out the buffet.
