“Good Food - Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

I arranged for a business meeting and when I arrived the tables had been properly arranged and set in a private area. None of the participants had previously eaten here and all were very complimentary of the food, service, and friendliness of the staff. The menu is more limited than larger restaurants, but there is still a variety and the prices are reasonable. I would highly recommend the Runway Cafe - a place that offers good food, a quieter atmosphere, and interesting views. Also, please support their efforts to build an airport park.

“Fun Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2012

Really good food and a free air show while you eat. Cool to watch planes roll up to the restaurant. Please support their effort to raise money for an airport park.

“Surprisingly good food, reasonable prices, fun atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012

Have been here several times over the past year and come away impressed each time. The choices aren't overwhelming but each menu item we've tried has been well prepared and tasty. Can't express enough how neat it is to enjoy a family meal with planes landing and taking off. Their prices are reasonable and they have outside seating. This is becoming one of our go to places for guests coming to town.

“Relaxing spot, great sandwiches, fried okra!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2012 via mobile

After 3 long days at the convention center, we needed a meal before a long drive home. Sitting by a runway doesn't sound relaxing, but it was here. Only one small plane or jet landed every 20-30 minutes, not too close to the spacious patio where we sat in the sun. Service was very good, and the sandwiches were delicious. There was a wide variety available. We saw a family with a small boy; there was plenty of room for him to scamper with his toy plane without crowding us.

“Literally a runway cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

Great, simple dishes for VERY reasonable prices. Perfect for an afternoon lunch while watching planes (small personal planes) come and go. Very kid-friendly too. Be sure to check out the hangar if you're looking for a place to host a gathering or kids birthday party.
