What an experience we had. Excellent service from the staff. Employees dressed in airline attire, tour around the restaurant from the hostess, and memorabilia everywhere...AWESOME! As for food, stick to the simple stuff (burgers, wings, sandwiches, etc...). Highly recommended! We will be back!

This is a novelty restaurant that was kind of fun to experience. How many times can you honestly say you had dinner in an airplane. We had reservations so there was no wait and we were seated in the plane. The staff really plays up...More

We decided to visit the airplane restaurant because we thought it was a novel idea and figured our five year old would enjoy it. The plane itself was neat and the kids enjoyed sitting in the cockpit but that lasted all of five minutes. The...More
