We enjoy flying in and watching planes take off and land while having delicious meals. Menu is good for all. Nice veggie and hummus sandwich. You can drive or walk here also to enjoy water and runway views.

this is a fun restaurant since it is on the local small airport grounds and the food is good - they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner - if you go for breakfast or lunch you can also visit the Salvadore Dali museum which is just across the street

Some places you look for, others, you just discover! That's the beauty, discovering a nice place, on an airport terminal with a theme! Having lunch, brunch or drinks on a nice terrace overlooking the main landing strip of a small but busy executive airport is not something you can seldom do. Unless of course, you live in the area. We... More

What a nice place to have any meal: breakfast, lunch or dinner. We recently had dinner here before a concert at the Mahaffey Theater and we hated to leave. We could have sat there all evening watching the small planes and helicopters coming in and out. The setting is right on the waterfront so it is a great place to... More

Tucked away in the small Arthur Whitted Airport, this is a terrific spot for breakfast or lunch in downtown St Pete. Menu ranges from basic breakfast items to standard dishes with a flare, like the Brie, mushroom, sun dried tomato quesadilla and delicious grouper tacos. Delicious Bloody Mary's and friendly, responsive staff made this a perfect dining experience. Sit outside... More

This was the place locals recommended. The food was fine, pretty much what you'd expect at an airport hangar, and the attraction is to watch the small planes come in. Spending so much time at airports, this was not as entertaining for me as it seems to be for others. The staff was very friendly, however, and the music wasn't... More

Wow! Such a unique space and fun atmosphere! The manager James and our server Drew were incredibly attentive and helpful. Also their steak and eggs is one of the best brunch meals in St. Pete.

Had been to this restaurant in the past and decided to try it again. We were seated right away, even though the restaurant was busy. Our server Drew was attentive and efficient. Our cocktails were served quickly and were tall and strong. The lunch menu had a lot of choices. The food was underwhelming. Just very average. It seemed more... More

Located on entire 2nd floor of private airport terminal allows cool views of private planes take off and landings. It has outside decks as well as all window walls for great views. Mid priced nicely varied menu. Friendly Service. We usually go fro dinner but understand they have a very big breakfast following. Room has live music weekend a few... More

Good food and good service. And what an unusual treat to watch the smaller planes (and helicopters!) flying in and out right below. Favorite is the "hangar burger" with caramelized onion, melted brie and bacon jam! With hangar chips! But there are lots of things on the menu to choose from including fettucine, shrimp & grits or chicken & waffles!... More
