My husband and I frequent The Flight Deck on Friday evenings with several other couples who are "regulars". They are ALWAYS quick and the food is fantastic. I have to give a HUGE shout out to bartender Paul who handles a great majority of all the requests for adult beverages and handles the entire bar area. He can make anything... More

The Flight Deck Restaurant overlooks the Apron and Runways of Salem Airport. There is almost always something going on outside that will amuse and entertain an aviation buff. The food is American Classic, fresh, well prepared, and served hot. The waitstaff is friendly and attentive. On our most recent visit, my wife had the Pan Fried Oysters, and pronounced them... More

Joined friends for easy dinner. Tried the deep fried dill pickles finally and they were delicious especially dipped in ranch dressing. They do old fashioned tator tots that are crispy and hot. One had sirloin steak, shrimp Louie, soup and blue bacon burger, all tasty.

I rarely go here but am happy after I do. The place is clean, the food is great, a decent value and the view nice with all of the private airplanes. Kid like it too, because of the planes coming and going. Breakfast is my favorite with the sunrise coming over he airport. Very nice place.

I have mixed feelings about this place. One of the chefs was sneezing a lot. We have a new sick leave requirement in Oregon. Stay home, please! The interior is worn and dated. Worn tables, dirty carpet, worn and old plates. Dirty windows. I did like all of the planes hanging from the ceiling. Four of us arrived on a... More

The burgers are delicious along with tater tots! Salads are fine and menu has a nice variety of options including light meals. We go almost monthly. Friendly staff and fun to watch airplanes come and go at our small airport.

There is a lot of construction in the area now, even our GPS was confused. But we knew it was at the general aviation airport somewhere and we found it, at last. A lucky find for us!
