Lighthouse Landing Restaurant

More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast
Description: Hidden away, yet easy to find. Located in the Sussex County Airport Terminal. A unique setting with various aircraft, helicopters, jets, vintage planes, it's all adjacent to the restaurant. Visited by celebrities, dignitaries, and locals this melting pot experiences local foods, prepared simply. Homemade sticky buns, seaside salad, Wanda's wonderful meatloaf, are all favorites off the menu. Weekly specials that rotate with the seasons and daily specials that capture the best of what's available today all make for a satisfying experience.

“Lighthouse Landing is now Arenas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Lighthouse Landing is out of business at the airport as of May 2013. The new restaurant at the airport location is Arenas. These are the same people who operate Arena's Deli and Bar in Rehoboth, Arena's Cafe Rehoboth, Arena's Cafe Lewes, and Arena's Cafe Longneck in Millsboro.
They have a very good reputation. As Arena's operates in the old Lighthouse Landing location, you can still watch the planes come and go as you eat.

“Airport Hangout”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

As a local pilot, I hang out at Lighthouse Landing a lot. Great friendly people and good food. I especially like the bison burger, made with locally grown bison meat. If you come for breakfast, I recommend the flight wrapper. It's a breakfast burrito.

“Good Lunch Spot Reasonable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

If you love planes this has a fantastic view of the runway at Sussex County Airport. The lunch menu had reasonable prices for food 6-9 dollars for most. Today I had the Friday special Shrimp Creole--- it was just OK. Wine was cheap, $3 a glass! I think this would be a good place to have a family dinner. I noticed that the restaurant was still promoting the previous months specials. Upon entry we were greeted with "hi sit wherever you want" Also smelled cigarette smoke on the server. With a little more effort this place could be more successful.

“Good, out of the way place to eat.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We were right next door at the Sports at the Beach Baseball facility and went here for lunch with a group of about 12 between games. They let us slide a couple tables together and we had a good, quick lunch in about the same time and for about the same money as we would have paid for fast food.
Nice atomosphere, quiet and comfortable with a good view of planes landing and departing. Clean with great sweet tea and crabcake sandwiches.

“What a fantastic little find!! A must go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012 via mobile

We weekend in rehoboth beach....saw an advertising about this airport restaurant and have small twins who love planes...went one weekend morning for breakfast....wonderful fresh food, farm fresh eggs, great wrap, wonderful coffee....etc.... fantastic small town airport where the kids can sit in a clean, new, restaurant and watch helicopters and airplanes from their seat. They loved the airport and we loved the food. Its truly a great find in sussex county and we try to get down as much as we can and would highly recommend for the fun airport for the kids and the adults luck out with wonderful fresh food. Way to go!
