My California family (due to 20 years of marraige) took me to 94th Aero Squadron to celebrate my 50th Birthday!! Since I was a little girl, my grandparents always took us to the 94th Aero Squadron in Clearwater, Florida every Saturday. What a GIFT to return to this Amazing Place!! :) One of the Best Days of My Life!! A BIG SHOUT OUT TO SILVIA FOR BEING AN OUTSTANDING SERVER!! NOT 1 OF THE 8 OF US EVER ASKED FOR ANYTHING AS SHE WAS ON TOP OF IT ALL!! REGARDLESS, OF BEING SLAMMED DURING A SUNDAY BRUNCH!! OUTSTANDING!! We will always call before we come to visit now to make sure Silvia is working so we can sit with her. :)

Very good choice for a dinner option. The salmon with sides of a baked potato and veggies were tasty, my wife had the scampi with mashed potatoes (usually paired with linguine) which was good as well. Nice ambience and the cheesecake was terrific!

It was our fifth anniversary we were sitting in a beautiful seat but behind us was two people with two infants screaming and acting up. That ruined the whole ambience of our anniversary,I knew ahead of time was our anniversary you think they would’ve had those people seated somewhere there were kids.

Service was great, food was better. Check in was a tad rough due to it being Easter but we were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation and everything was like clockwork after that

The service was really poor. There were not very many full tables when we arrived but it took over an hour to get our meal. My sister's meal tasted bad and she sent it back and the waiter said that he would remove it from our bill, but the dinners came with a small salad and although her removed the almost $30 charge for the ribs, he charged us $6 for the salad. Really poor customer service and the food was not worth the price- almost $24 for pasta with chicken and $30 for the steak. Will not return.

I have been going to this restaurant for more then twenty years and have always been happy with my experience until last Saturday.

While the food was as expected the service was beyond disappointing. It took 45 minutes just to serve our salads and then we were not able to finish our salads before the main course arrived.

I also became aware that the restaurant is under new ownership, I hope they get their act together.

Tried this place while visiting San Diego because of the great reviews and proximity to our hotel. They have a night club that opens at 6:30PM which was interesting. It did offer a learning opportunity for our daughters of what was and wasn’t appropriate attire for a young woman. Restaurant was a little dated and was probably a happening place in 1970. Food was good but nothing I couldn’t get somewhere else. Waiter forgot our salads and soup and tried to bring them after we finished our meal. Would not recommend unless you were looking for an early bird nightclub!

It wasn’t bad and wasn’t great, just so so. I don’t understand why this place draws such a large crowd. If it wasn’t for the social aspect, I would probably never come here.

We arrived 3 adults & 5 children ages 2-9. Although this is a classy restaurant we were seated at a large table & the kids had a wonderful time- quietly! The ambiance involves 1920's (?) & 40's music, WWl photos & artifacts. The kids & we really enjoyed it! The food is excellent, & service outstanding. Best for a date or evening with friends.

We visit here once a month and enjoy landing aircrafts or at least listening to the tower. I wish every table had head phones. I had the onion soup, delicious and the peppercorn steak also very good.

Superb service by Zac, seated at our preferred window area, good bread, escargot/mushrooms were good, steaks (flat iron) was a bit over cooked, prime ribs were very good! Desserts delicious! We had a very nice dinner. The bathroom needs to be renovated/upgraded! Other than that, the restaurant is beautifully decorated and looks incredible!

Lunch date with my wife. This would be our 2nd visit to 94 Aero Squadron Restaurant, but not my first. In my early days of being single, it was a place with a date. So my most recent visit was for a retirement brunch for a dear friend of me and my wife. The restaurant looked the same, and having the chance to taste the Cuisine again, was a first. My wife enjoyed the our lunch. It reminded us of our last year’s travel to France and Spain. Today it was our date day. The food is delicious, and ambience was so French, and respectfully quiet, even with a group luncheon in progress. We chose the buffet lunch, and were able to take our time to eat and enjoy our food. I believe we stayed for more than an hour, allowing us to talk, and have a short business meeting. I recommend 94 Aero Squadron Restaurant for any occasion. Delicious food, good service, and quiet sophisticated dinning experience.

The prime rib had a lot of fat and it was stringy. The garlic mashed potatoes were dry but had good flavor. The waiter was very nice and efficient.

Our waitress, Silvia kept disappearing. Our dirty plates (it was Brunch) were not picked up in a timely manner, we had to ask for drink refills, and we were able to hear her talking to the wait staff/kitchen personnel from our table. She definitely was NOT overworked that day. This is not what we are used to at the 94th Aero Squadron - and we eat there for most special occasions.
The food was wonderful as always and we will go back. Hopefully we will not have Silvia as our wait staff.

We went here tonight for an early dinner before an event at Valley View Casino Center. Had never been here before. Very unique, it felt like a throwback. Everyone very kind, from Hostess to bussers. Our waitress was great and the food delicious! We had the crab stuffed shrimp and their creamed corn which comes with every meal if you want it was the best we've ever had and it was a lil bit sinful. Yum.

The 94th Squadron is my go-to restaurant when friends are visiting. I have had both weekday lunches as well as Sunday brunches. Food selections are always plentiful and very good. We celebrated my mother's 100th birthday there and the staff was very helpful in making sure she had a good time.

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.
