We stopped in for a late lunch on the way back from the Delaware Water Gap before heading to check out the Paulinskill Viaduct just up the road. The egg wrap sandwich with spinach, cheese, potatoes and sausage was delicious. The pastrami hash might have been great but it was slightly burnt. They were out of the dessert we were... More

Donna puts out good homemade simple inexpensive fare. Prices are very low but the portions are reasonable. The waitresses are the friendliest around; they will know your name after you have there a few times. Seating could be difficult on a good weather day since many pilots come there for the food and cheap aviation fuel.

When I'm in Blairstown I insist I come here - it's so small and friendly. There's very few booths and I always feel like a local when I'm here. The food is excellent, the portions are large and the meal is cheap. It used to be cheaper before the restaurant changed hands but I'm happy it's still here!

We have been coming here for years. Always service with a smile and good food! Plus, having the small, private airport next to the restaurant is a draw for children and adults alike!

If you're a pilot looking for a good $100 hamburger (that includes the flight!), Donna's is a great destination. Good, basic food, cheerful service and a good view of the runway. In good weather, they will bring your order out to a picnic table under the trees, with an even better view. Nothing fancy, but really nice. And check out... More

Go to breakfast frequently. Local color and charm. Watch the small planes and gliders take off and land while you eat. Everything is prepared fresh. A local hangout for great food.

Harrison Ford is a big fan of the burgers, and he can be trusted. It's a great diner, without the typical shiny metal diner feel.

Spent a spectacular Sunday afternoon at the Blairstown Airport, just watching the planes & gliders coming & going. Stopped into the Runway Café for lunch after hearing good things about it. We were not disappointed. It's a tiny little place, (which was packed) so we opted to eat outside at one of the picnic tables in the shade, so we... More
