This was a pleasant surprise because the restaurant is as much about World War I history as it is great food. The service was excellent and so was my dinner. My steak was perfectly cooked. What a find!

Food and service was great, no complaints what so ever. Just wished it wasn’t so cramped and warm inside. We were seated by the dessert table and so people were constantly squeezing by our table and crowding around. They also place the tables way too close to each other, my husband had to get up every time I got up. But overall, I would be back but next time I’d like to sit somewhere a little farther away from the food.

Great service from Zak, and the prime rib was the best that I’ve ever had there, and it’s always good.

We had a great meal. The French onion soup was warm, which it is best served hot. Also It would have been nice to be offered more bread. Dinner want ready yet and we could have gone fore more bread while we waited!!! However, the dinner was great!!!

Went for the Valentines Day Special...Great service. Waiter was pleasant and quick. Love the decor. Food was actually a bit better than I expected. The price for the V-Day special was very reasonable and I left the place with a full stomach. The only negative was the little field mouse that kept peeking its head through the double door that lead to the outdoor patio. That sort of soured the mood just a wee bit. I know the place is located near an open field and all kinds of critters can make there way out of the field, but maybe something could be placed along the edges to deter this (something along the line of a silent dog whistle or so). It wasn't all bad though and was sort of comical when all said and done. But overall the experience was great. In fact I actually plan on returning to the place and even bringing friends with me in the future. The place was actually very clean and well kept. It was dark outside when we arrived so I couldn't really get a great sense of what the view would be in day light hours. Maybe next time I'll dine a little bit earlier. Comes recommended...You will enjoy yourself and the food! 3.75 stars out of 5

One of our VERY special restaurants! The ambiance is unique and the food is outstanding! The value is also exceptional -especially the early flight dinners . If you're in the neighborhood , give the 94th Squagron a try-you will not be disappointed !

Went with friends for our anniversary.
Attentive service and comfortable French farmhouse ambiance. The Bibb salad and clam chowder were excellent, but the chicken roulade, my usual favorite, was lacking in flavor, an another diner’s stuffed mushroom’s were described as chewy and oily. These were a departure from their usually tasty dishes. We will likely go back based on our prior experiences, and hope we are not disappointed

The 49th Aero Squadron Restaurant is a funky place with a decor of WW1 airplanes, next to a small plane airport. It's a bit on the expensive side, but the food is great and the service likewise. This time we had a great waitress with a good sense of balance and humor. We were treating another couple, with a birthday for one of them, and had a wonderful evening. Three of us had the filet mignon with Bernaise sauce, and we finished with creme brulee with raspberries. Great evening!

It was quite slow the evening we were there, so can't really judge what the place is like when busy. The food was very good and the prices quite reasonable. Must say, the NY Strip steak I had was better than the last one I had a Ruth's Chris. Service was good. It was evening, so the airport was quiet, but we did get to watch a couple helicopters come in. Overall, a nice place for dinner and will go again.

Arrived early, party of 6-was not invited to wait in bar. Left standing around till I asked host of wait time-5 minutes he says, table is being cleaned up. Asked if there was somewhere to get a cocktail-other hostess directs us to bar and says she will be right back to get us. It is now 20+ minutes later and we are finally seated. Lack of service-waiter took so long to take our food order, take drink orders, etc. Busboy lacking to refill waters. Food took sooo long and it was just slapped onto plate and sprinkled with parsley. Poor presentation and quality for price-even for restaurant week. Au jus was not given with prime rib. Had to ask for that. It was just lame-not returning.

Overall, nice experience.
Watch out when you order a sizzling steak.
It can come on a hot metal platter, set in a wood frame.
My date touched the hot metal and was burned.
We notified our server, she offered some burn ointment.
Kinda a plus and minus, but the food was very good.
The burn was minor, and we’ll still eat again there soon.

This was our first visit and we enjoyed ourselves very much. The theming of the restaurant is very clever and interesting. The many small rooms make a very large restaurant seem small and intimate. The food and the service were fine.
