After a very long day of travelling, dinner at the Final Approach was just what we needed. We both ordered salads as we weren't overly hungry....the salads were huge, and delicious! Everything was fresh and tasty - no complaints!

Varied menu and good service. Fireplace in the winter. Good soups and great fish fry. Crowd seems to be regulars even across from airport where you'd expect a lot of travelers
