Always have really good food here. They also do a comedy night on some Friday nights. I've been a few times with my parents and we love it. Just a good time. Meals are inexpensive and they have good specials so special days like New Years and Valentine's Day. Check out the comedy club tho!

When we entered the restaurant we were the only ones there. The waiter was very attentive and brought our drinks right away. We both had the special, which was an Italian sausage patty with grilled onions and green peppers. There was not much sauce on the sandwich and it lacked flavor. The mashed potatoes were very tasty. We opted to... More

My wife and I arrived about 1pm on a Saturday. The restaurant was packed full of partiers. We were a little worried at first, but the hostess led us to a room in the back which was nice and quiet. We didn't wait for our long and were very satisfied. We each had enough left over for an additional meal.... More

We needed lunch for almost 30 people after a memorial service. We worked with Stephanie who recommended a menu of lemon pepper chicken, lasagna, new potatoes, salad, mixed vegetables, dinner rolls and two types of cake for dessert (chocolate and carrot). We also had water, iced tea and soft drinks. We arrived earlier than expected, but the room was set... More

First time at the restaurant. Stopped for dinner. Service was good. Nice variety menu. Pasta dishes recommended. Ordered ziti pasta and shrimp scampi. Food was very good. Came with salad bowl and homemade focaccia bread. Would definitely recommend and go back again.

This is the best Italian restaurant that I have ever eaten in. The dish is prepared at the time of ordering. I had fusillade with sausage and mushrooms. The pasta was homemade and the mushrooms were sliced fresh for my meal. Wow! My friend asked for cocktail sauce for a meal that did not usually use it, and it was... More

I never cease to be amazed at the Main Hangar innovators! This time it was Ten, Ten minute comedy sketches combined with dinner! The food was fabulous. We were seated with fun, interesting people, the service was great and the skits were first rate and very professional! If you're looking for something fun and different, keep up with what's going...

We stopped in the Main Hanger on Saturday evening as we had not been there for a long time. The restaurant had very few patrons with the exception of a party in a private room. We decided against dinner seeing so few people in the dining room & opted to have a drink at the bar & requested a menu.... More

We had hours to wait for a flight, so tried the lunch buffet. The food was decent buffet food & we enjoyed it. It was fine for the price. The waiter was friendly and attentive. I was drinking beer and we were welcoming to stay at our table while waiting, which was a couple hours.

Thank mrjlsee
