My wife & enjoyed a late breakfast midday, midweek here while a couple of WWII planes were on exhibit a few weeks back. We liked it well enough to suggest a late lunch with our daughter's family on Mother's Day. They arrived around 1:30 to find about an hour's wait. They found a nearby facility with a lesser wait.

We are lunch there after a special event. The restaurant was fairly busy, but there were at least 4 waitresses working. They were very pleasant. Our drinks were served promptly. The sandwiches were tasty. The restaurant was clean. It was fun watching the planes. We'll be back.

Flew in with a friend for a quick lunch. This was our first time landing at this airport, and we weren't sure what to expect, as small airport dining can be a bit uncertain. Wow! This place could be our new favorite. Great menu, fast friendly service, reasonable prices. What more could you as for.

French Valley Cafe was recommended by a friend for the good food, aviation themes throughout the restaurant and the outside airport activity. I was not disappointed. There is an outside dining area as well, but as it was extremely warm on the day we visited, so we elected to dine indoors. The food was excellent, and the airport activity kept... More

The experience could've been great but the service was slow and the food was less than satisfactory. The location has potential to be a really great place unfortunately Management doesn't step up to the plate and make it happen.

If you have an hour to kill waiting for your food, go for it. This is the 3rd time I have been here and the service it is way too slow. The only thing this place has going for it is the fact it's in the airport. The food is average and the service is glacial.

I've had lunch at the French Valley Cafe quite a number of times and have never been disappointed. On weekend, it sometimes gets real busy and the wait for the food can become excessive. The food is quite good and every special request is accommodated with a smile.

This was one of my worst experience with service and food. Waitress was very bad, got our order wrong, and the food had no taste. I had told them It was my first time there, I wanted to visit and experience it. It was a waste of 40 minutes, and $25. I will always pass on my experience to anyone... More
