At the Schaumburg airport, this restaurant gives you a nice view of the runways to watch small planes and helicopters take off and land, while enjoying some really good food. I had the Fish & Chips, with tater tots instead of the regular fries. Huge...More

First of all this is a great location with a great decor. Fun to watch the planes if they were running. I didn't see any. The service was good except I waited at the front desk for about 10 minutes with a practically empty restaurant....More

Chose Pilot Pete's to meet colleagues for lunch before a meeting. They have a nice variety on their menu so it would fit everyone's tastes. We were there on a Friday and frankly thought the place would be a bit slower but it was fairly...More

Food is average. Prices are too high and menu not diverse enough. If you like watching airplanes go on the weekend's.

This place was pretty cool. I wish you could give half stars on this site because sometimes it's needed. This place is not a 4, but really not as low as a 3. The Bloody Mary's were pretty good and so were the Lobster nachos....More

Haven't had a bad meal here. Nice atmosphere, lots of food. A good menu mix, something for everyone. Lots of windows which is fun being at the local airport. Wish there were more places like this, instead of the boring chain restaurants.

I feel ripped off having eaten here. We have not been to this place in a couple months, and we certainly won't be back after this visit. We got the loaded tater tots as an appetizer. Fast food places do a better job! Watered down...More
