Restaurant details
Reviewed January 7, 2014

My wife was working until 7:00 pm on New Years so I stopped by the Taildragger Cafe for an early cocktail before we went into town and I can say we had a great time. The restaurant had a early New Years champagne toast which was great and very timely and I was able to get a great burger. The food here is great and it is a great local stop. Don't pass up this opportunity if you are in the neighborhood . A great bonus is the restaurant faces the airport and this place has a lot of unique and classic planes arriving and taking off.

This place has great food and the waitress is fun and sassy. Old coffee shop, you look out onto the runway. Kinda fun to watch the planes come and go. Love the chicken fried steak!! But can never eat it all. Share it with a friend. Burgers are fantastic too!

Just three minutes east of Hwy 395 at the Minden Airport, the restaurant is on the edge of the parking ramp. If you are an airplane buff you'll enjoy the location, and if you just come for the food, you'll enjoy the breakfast or lunch fare. Friendly folks, a full bar and aviation entertainment out the window. What's not to like?

This is not a fancy place to eat but the staff were friendly and helpful and the range of food was good. I have never seen such a long list of sandwiches as was on their menu. However, don't expect two slices of bread and a thin filling. Their sandwiches were amazing and huge. As American diners go, this is one worth returning to.

This is a place that mostly locals know about. Nothing fancy. Great views of the Carson Valley airport out the windows. Hearty breakfasts with large portions and priced right. Can't leave here hungry!
