Only one Restaurant, but It is clean and spacious with convenient parking right near the Main entrance. The Warplane Museum is also quite small, but quite interesting and worth a visit.

A gem that is hidden away. Occasional air shows but the museum has great displays and is mall enough to really explore the history there. Take the kids.
