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

Great decor, nice views of the runway, terrific waitstaff, but so so food. Can't say anything was bad, just nothing to compel any of our party of five for a return visit. Calamari appetizer was overcooked. My roasted sole was fine, but the accompanying risotto was undercooked and crunchy. The baked scrod, chicken marsala, steak au Poivre and the salmon... More

I was most shocked that it was truly located at the airport but don't let that deceive you. It's really cozy inside and the food is awesome. Nothing plain Jane about this place. Very creative menu. A must try!

WE had a seat by the window and could watch Cape Air come in. Attractive restaurant that features Jazz on Weekends. My wife loved her cocktail and the wine I had was very good. My wife had steak tips and I had veal marsala ... Great presentation! Lovely attentive waitress Amanda. We plan to be back in late September to... More

Working in the area sporadically on projects from 3-7 months, I always make my way to the AG when in the area. The staff is very friendly and attentive but not overbearing. First time in since last year today 8/09/15, and appreciate the consistency. The mussels are the best in the area with three varieties to chose from. I had... 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.
