An unusual place for lunch, food is very good and atmosphere is pleasant, and close enough to the flight lines you can watch take-offs and landings, be surprised at the types of aircraft in use at our local airport

Need somewhere to eat when you don't feel like cooking, this is a great place to go. They need to do a little updating but if you get past that the food is very good and the price is even better. The kids like it and some times you get to see a plane come in or take off.

Took my granddaughter to have lunch and hopefully see a plane take-off and land. We saw both, and enjoyed a nice lunch!

We are a young family that had recently moved to the Coatesville area and we wanted to go check this place out for lunch. A restaurant/lunch cafe with a bar at a small airport seems like something promising, but this place needs serious help. It looks like it hasn't been updated since the late 80's and the tile floor felt... More

Best place for a sauerkraut, corned beef sandwich and Burgers. Other foods available on their menu along with daily specials. Pricing is a little high when you get out of the bar food but it is very appetizing.

A friendly diner with a nice selection of diner food. I was here for breakfast and the eggs,sausage and pancakes were great. Service was extremely fast and they kept the coffee coming. Considering it's hidden away at Chester County Airport I was surprised how busy it was.

The meatloaf was good, the gravy was not as good. Portions are large and the prices are relatively cheap. I won't go out of my way to return.
