Very dated confusing decor. Chile pepper carpet, slick green chairs, Airplanes hanging from the ceiling. Had to clean off my chair before sitting. The ran out of the draft beer and had to switch to bottles.

We ate here after my arrival at the Franklin airport. The food was good. The portions are huge. They can easily be shared but you have to pay $3 for a 2nd plate. All of us took at least half our meal home. We had spaghetti with meat sauce, manicotti, and a bowl of minestrone soup with garlic bread. I... More

This was an interesting place--you sit almost right on the tarmac and can watch the small planes land and take off. The space was comfortable and had a lot of different decorations and historical items related to flying. The food was good, nothing spectacular, and the service was solid.

We enjoyed the air conditioned ambiance of this airport restaurant with model planes hung from the ceiling. I tried my first "Ruby" sandwich with salami, Swiss, and coleslaw - very good! A mellow jazz soundtrack made for a relaxing lunch.

I went here on the recommendation of a friend. If my friend want to go there I'd go with him but I wouldn't go back on my own. The salad dressing was good but the salad wasn't anything special -- lettuce, one grape tomato and 2 chick peas, one piece of cucumber and one piece of thinly sliced radish. The... More

We've never had good service here and the food is marginal at best. It used to be one of the nicest dining rooms in town but that has gone by the wayside too. I don't recommend it at all.
