“Nothing fancy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

I've been going to Ocean City for many years so I don't know if that is the reason that I think this restaurant has it's own kind of charm. It is nothing fancy by any means. They serve breakfast and lunch only. It's a small, slightly cramped restaurant with the floor visually on an angle but the people that work there are terrific. They are friendly and accommodating and the food is good. Prices aren't too bad either for a resort town.

“Average breakfast”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

I've eaten at the Airport Diner several times, and this last visit wasn't as good as usual. The breakfast food is standard and nothing special. The prices for some of the upcharges however are ridiculous, even for Ocean City. $1.50 for whipped cream added to a pancake - REALLY? Our server was a young girl and was earnest, but overcharged us on the bill. Its a novelty to have a restaurant at the "airport" but once you're inside, aside from the giant "AIRPORT" lettered sign on one of the doors, you could be anywhere. Overall, with other better options for breakfast, I'll pass next time.

“Never expected to find a diner in the local airport!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

As many times as we have passed the airport, we never noticed that there was a restaurant there! This place reminds me of an old time diner .... not a greasy spoon, but lots of formica, tile, pictures of visitors all over the walls. Apparently there can be a wait at times but we were able to be seated immediately early one August morning. Inexpensive and decent breakfast food ... and the coffee was great. Wait staff was attentive but not overly-so. We will return without a doubt.

“Great place for breakfast.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

Great place for breakfast! Old time service and atmosphere. Prices are fair in a town that has high prices. Good specials. No frills but good honest food. Kids can watch the occacional plane take off or land.

“Nice surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

Didn't look up reviews or know what to expect-

My daughter and I ate there last weekend, and the people were friendly and the food was great.

I got the "airport omelette", she got Eggs Benedict. Both were delicous. We're picky.

Only catch it that it's relatively small; we ate early, but by 10:00 or 10:15 there was a little wait.
