“Sunday Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

My Family and I have been going to this resturant for the last 18 years, always good times, you get to watch the planes take off and land. open 7 days a week. Back in the day they served ice cold beer, but not anymore. Come take alook and see for your self. If you look at the board by the cash resigaster they performed airliner crash here at Deer Vally Airport. You can U tube it Douglas DC 7 crash test. Very Cool A lot of history at this place.

“Our Favorite Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

I was surprised to see any negative reviews about this restaurant, although I do not eat fish fry's, or buffets. My husband and I have been there at least 20 times over the past three months, and it is by far our favorite restaurant now. We first ended up there because we wanted to watch planes land and take off at the airport. The view is beautiful and have seen some great sunsets here. We were happy to find the food to be fantastic. We have always ordered from the specials of the day. We love the filet minion special and have not found any place that comes close in price. The spaghetti and meatballs was the best I have ever tasted. Fried chicken was great. The mushroom soup amazing. Chicken rice soup and split pea soup were wonderful. The salad bar is simple, but always fresh and perfect. The breakfast potatoes, bacon and eggs we love. Now this isn't a "Scottsdale" gourmet restaurant. This is a family restaurant with great homemade food at excellent prices... like going to your moms for dinner. What has made this place extra special is that the owners and staff have welcomed us so warmly and treated us like family. Perhaps the best thing to order is the specials of the day... we have had great luck with every meal we have ordered. This place has almost always been packed.... so perhaps it is just a best kept secret for those who love this place.

“Fish Buffet...what a joke.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Had a coupon to try this place. We were between Black Angus and DV Restaurant and decided to try the "all you can eat fish buffet" at DV Restaurant since it was a Friday. Server said buffet was up front. We got our salad, which was quite watery and waited for our fish & fries. We asked server and he said fish is up front at the buffet. Are you kidding? All you can eat fish at a warming table...thank god for Mrs. Pauls causse this tasted just like the box it came in. No fries, just had crusted tiny shrimp which about broke a tooth. They also had deep pink colored shrimp cocktail. The shrimp had no taste. Let me repeat, the shrimp tasted like "nothing". We could not believe this horrible meal that costs $31. This place needs a completed makeover starting with the general manager and food manager. Why the hell would they even think of using "canned" vegetables and Mrs Pauls frozen fish in a box? The add is not misleading, it's a total lie. This is not what most people would call a "all you can eat fish fry", which is standard fare in this country on a Friday night. Stunned, shocked, and will never return. Their coupon got me in but they will not get repeat business.

“Convenient for Pilots and Ground Personnel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

This place is convenient for pilots and ground personnel, but the food is poor. The atmosphere is also lacking. Due to the few patrons, a plus is that it is easy to get a seat by a window to look out at the airport. They also have a lot of historical airplane pictures, and a huge collection of model aircraft.

“Try the French Dip sandwich”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Nothing really special on this place. They have a limited menu, some dishes are good and I like the French Dip.
