Ive been here numerous times and just last week finally tried the burger. It was really good. The cookies are huge and run about $2.50 I believe. My wife always wants to go there just for the cookies and usually ends up staying for a main course.

A great thing to do is order your food and sit outside overlooking the mountain ranges towards the town of Avalon. Its a great view! If your up for a short scenic hike theres a 2 mile loop you can hike around that has some great scenery. Allow about 2 1/2 hours for the beginner to be safe and bring plenty of water and Cookies!!!

On our Inland Expedition Tour, our guide, Stephen, recommended the Killer Cookie at the Airport restaurant. OMG...it is sooo good and truly a meal in itself. I bought the Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Walnut. For 2.50, it's HUGE and so homemade yummy delicious. It was a very nice indulgence for the day!

We stopped here on our tour of Catalina. One of our family members, who lives on the island, recommended that we go there for lunch. This is not a 5 star gourmet restaurant. They have sandwiches, buffalo burgers and even tacos. It's a simple menu and is tasty.The cookies are great. You can eat your lunch on the back patio overlooking the beautiful scenery. It also has a nice giftshop. Would eat here again.

I wasn't sure what I'd get when I took a tour that stopped here for lunch. I was pleasantly surprised by the restaurant and gift shop. My husband got the bison tacos (he figured he'd never see that on another menu!) and I got the grilled cheese on sourdough. The food is cooked to order and you get to choose indoor or outdoor seating. We sat outdoors and watched the hummingbirds flit around from branch to branch. The food quality was very good and the prices were very reasonable. We were tempted by the cookies but we left them for our next visit.
