Hadn't been back here in a few years. Still has a great burger. The outside deck is a neat place to eat and watch aircraft up close. Lunch on Friday had a high volume of aircraft activity to enjoy!

Our four team members eat out together frequently. We often explore the non-chain restaurants; sometimes the results are similar: good, average food. That summarizes my opinion of last night's visit. In my opinion, Downwind did a competent job serving and preparing American bar food. The...More
