“Great cheeseburgers on Wednesdays!”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

What a deal! Great prices for cheeseburgers on Wednesdays with upbeat music indoors to boot! Eat outdoors and watch the planes land at the local airport, right at your doorstep. Our grandchildren love to eat here and watch the planes. Inside, different musicians play most evenings to add to the atmosphere.

“Good Food with a View”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We had breakfast in this interesting restaurant overlooking the general aviation airport. Our omelets were tasty and the friendly server was quick to refresh our coffee. Other friends told us they had enjoyed lunch here and were also well satisfied.The menu looked interesting and they have musical entertainment most evenings.

“Planes, waterfront, and very good food.”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

At Albert Whitted airport in St. Pete, there's a really cool restaurant where you can sit outside and watch planes over the blue waters, or sit inside and listen to live jazz. We chose the outside deck (on the second floor) and it was lovely with a slight breeze. The menu is not what I expected...it is much more than just salads and sandwiches. We split an appetizer, a berry and blue cheese salad and a stuffed chicken breast and had plenty to eat! Side dishes and rolls were very flavorful and fresh. There's a full bar, and prices were very reasonable. Our server was friendly and offered suggestions. One note of caution, though, the cheese fondue appetizer was thin and soupy...a shame since I love cheese. Parking is very easy, only a few steps away. We will be back.

“Unique dining experience”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

We've been here about 10 times, mostly for lunch and once before a concert at the Mahaffey Theater. We have never been disappointed. They always have interesting specials and a variety of staples on the menu. The bacon wrapped meatloaf is huge and yummy. The last time we went I had their lunch special (half grilled sandwich, cup of cream of chicken soup and a caesar salad. All in all their menu will have something for every palate and the prices are very reasonable. I would describe this as a restaurant with a semi-upscale atmosphere located at a small airport with a great view of the runway where you can watch the planes take off and land. Is that not cool?

“Hang Out at The Hangar”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

You cannot beat this restaurant for it's unique location and atmosphere--overlooking a private airport in the heart of St Petersburg, near The Salvador Dali museum.
The mussels are a rare treat and all the sauces are fantastic for each dish. A local favorite is the morning biscuits.However, stay away from the coffee (Kahwa coffee). My friend and I have tried it over the years to recheck the quality and are always disappointed--bitter and heavy, but not chicory good heavy.
The service has been more consistent the past two years; much better than in the beginning.
