This restaurant has a great vibe, and you don't have to be an aviation nut to appreciate it. Really good food and friendly service, too. Well worth a visit for something truly unique.

You don't have to be a pilot to enjoy the food and fun! Great service, great food, (and LOTS of it!) and the airplane decor is fun!

We really enjoyed having lunch here. The smoked Gouda stuffed meatballs and wedge salad were delicious.

If visiting the Dali Museum nearby (or not) this is a great place to grab a bite. Nice brunch/lunch place, not sure about dinner. good drinks and pleasant service.

Nice little restaurant upstairs at the local airport. Excellent, large burgers for a very reasonable price. Service was very good and they have a nice selection of local beers. The live entertainment is a little loud for the dining room but the bar is quieter. Fun place.

Took the family here for breakfast. We had a range of dishes including Chicken & Waffles, Shrimp & Grits, Biscuits & Gravy, and the usual bacon and eggs. Everything was tasty and prepared well. Service was "relaxed" which we didn't mind because we were busy talking and watching the planes.

My better half ordered the Salmon. Our Server was personable;... More

While living in St Petersburg, we had brunch here a few times. It was quite nice. The food was a cut above. The place was modern, clean, bathed in sunlight, and with a view of the small downtown airfield. An added bonus is live music most nights. One criticism is the wait staff always seemed to get something wrong with... More
