I've eaten lunch here several times after flying in from the bay area. The salads are excellent, sandwiches are good, more typical of a high end diner. The service has always been quick and friendly.

I can't believe this place has such a high rating. The food is terrible, the service is worse and the prices are way too high. But, if you are just going for drinks... it is cool to have a wall of windows overlooking the runway. Of course, this is the San Luis Obispo airport and we only get a 1/2 dozen jets a day, so expect to see a few private or commuters... not a TON of flying activity.

I live in SLO and go to this restaurant regularly. They have a nice menu from sandwich & soups to steak & chicken. On a sunny day the patio is a nice place to sit, but you will likely have to put up with the occasional LOUD aircraft taxiing by or landing. If you're a pilot like me, that's part of the restaurant personality. The restaurant is easy to get too and parking (metered) is just 75 feet from the front door. Oh, and they are one of the few restaurants that still takes reservations for lunch. This is important if you are going to be between flights or planning a business lunch.

I am a pilot, so I love a good place to eat where I can watch planes take off and land. This is the best view of an airport I have ever had at a restaurant. Great for kids, you are right on the runway, but the airport is not so busy that it is loud, sit on the patio for a perfect view. There is even a large grass picnic area where they can runaround just below the patio, doesn't bug anyone else at the restaurant. Go for the view, good/friendly service, and ok food, not bad, just ok.

Spirit of SLO is a nice small restuarant. It has wonderful food, and it is so close to the air strip, and parking. The patio seating is great, especially on warm weather days.
