We read a review in the newspaper and went to dinner. The waiter was excellent and provided great service. The meal was well prepared and tasted great. A nice place to visit easy parking and a nice place.

No problem with the food but the wait time between ordering and receiving was I little to long for me. We waited 10 minutes for ice , 15 for the appetizer and 30 for the entree and it was the wrong entree. Maybe a little busy for the staff that was working. But a visit next time maybe to another...

After asking friends for a recommendation for a nice place to go, several said to try the Airport Grille. We went there for our anniversary. We waited a good 10 minutes before the waiter brought any menus, then more time went buy before we could ordered. We sat there 45 minutes total before the food was served. It was very... More

The last few times we went to the Airport Grille, we were disappointed with the service. This time it was great thanks to our waitress Stacey G. The dining room and bar were half full around 7:00 pm on a Saturday night. My daughter chose the Buffalo Chicken Macaroni and Cheese. The portion was large and piping hot. It looked... More

Although this is at the airport it is not a sandwich shop or kiosk. Renovated a couple years ago the deco is attractively done. Slim blue lights running thru glass dividers give a modern note. There is a nice bar and an assortment of seating types..and yes a view of the runway. We had appetizers & drinks at home so... More

Came for an early dinner on a Saturday, got seated right away. Drinks and appetizers came out quickly and were good. Lots of choices of entrees from seafood pasta to steak there is something for everyone.

My husband and I were excited for a date night finally and so looking forward to the airport grille. They gave away our appetizer to another couple then I ordered my steak medium and it was burnt. My husband ordered the ribeye medium rare and it came out over cooked. They got our side dishes wrong too. We won't be... More

We celebrated a birthday here in early January. The atmosphere was inviting and our waiter John was very pleasant. We had the flat iron steak (cooked to our liking) and one of the specials which was grilled salmon topped with Granny Smith apple slices. The sides of mashed butternut squash and green beans added to the delicious tastes of the... More

Visited New Year's Eve, always happy in the past. This time we were not impressed. We ate at the bar and the waitress was a little over the top, nice but annoying. Food was ok, not impressive. Ribeye was thin and Brussels sprouts burnt. A couple of loud drunks at the bar should of been dealt with. We'll try again... More

Went for dinner with the family after spending the afternoon at playground in NB airport right outside the restaurant. My wife had Fish and Chips which she said were cooked perfectly, and I had a Chicken Marsala, also very tasty! Decent kids menu as well with a few healthier options. Will certainly come back, service and food were excellent and... More

This place is recently reopened and a local find. It's literally in the airport but is fine dining. Great nightly specials and serious wine list.
