Food was excellent and portions very generous. Salad was wonderful and service very dependable. Too bad there weren't more planes landing.

The Main Hangar is what it is- an airport restaurant. There is no ambiance- plastic table cloths and Walmart cutlery. The room has a nice view of the runways, but little else. My wife and I had lunch and it was ordinary- dry bread, and no imagination in anything we were served. It's an okay family restaurant, but we were... More

Great place to eat, especially the Sunday brunch. No doubt, that is why it has long been one of the best places to eat in Decatur. Hit that brunch and you will want to come back again and again.

Lunch was served quickly. The hot food was served hot and the cold food was served cold. The server was attentive but not hovering.

Free parking, Italian food, a good salad bar and you can watch airplanes land and take-off while you eat. The best part is a large dinning area that can be reserved for groups. My wife's alumni group meets there every other month. Good service, good food, reasonable prices. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating. Don't over look this place.

Always have really good food here. They also do a comedy night on some Friday nights. I've been a few times with my parents and we love it. Just a good time. Meals are inexpensive and they have good specials so special days like New Years and Valentine's Day. Check out the comedy club tho!

When we entered the restaurant we were the only ones there. The waiter was very attentive and brought our drinks right away. We both had the special, which was an Italian sausage patty with grilled onions and green peppers. There was not much sauce on the sandwich and it lacked flavor. The mashed potatoes were very tasty. We opted to... More

My wife and I arrived about 1pm on a Saturday. The restaurant was packed full of partiers. We were a little worried at first, but the hostess led us to a room in the back which was nice and quiet. We didn't wait for our long and were very satisfied. We each had enough left over for an additional meal.... More

We needed lunch for almost 30 people after a memorial service. We worked with Stephanie who recommended a menu of lemon pepper chicken, lasagna, new potatoes, salad, mixed vegetables, dinner rolls and two types of cake for dessert (chocolate and carrot). We also had water, iced tea and soft drinks. We arrived earlier than expected, but the room was set... More
