As soon as I arrived, the table was reserved (with a sign! felt so posh!) and the restaurant was obviously doing the best to be prepared for everyone's safety. John, the server, was the best. It was a great experience!

We love Airways Bistro for its good beer, food and outside eating option. With weather getting cold, they had both outside heaters and fire pit tables available.

Our only complaint is we would love to try the chili and it always seems to be sold out. Make a bigger pot of chili!

The flat breads were awesome. A change in the type of crust used for them MUST stay on the menu. Great selection of beverages & our server was attentive, accommodating & friendly. Hope more outdoor heaters are on order for the upcoming winter weather. We will definitely return.

Great beers abs really yummy food. The Mac and Cheese is one of the few I consider "worth it." Homemade to perfection, just like their beers. Try any IPA and you can't go wrong!

Amazing macaroni and cheese! Great service! Wonderful mellow atmosphere and pleasant outside seating were already perfect but a couple of delicious house pilsners made it even better. Highly recommend

Took my stepmom to get her out of the house so dad could set up her surprise birthday party. Found Airways online while I don't know Kent, I was pleasantly surprised. The food and beer are outstanding and there was only one server who kept her cool and was amazing!

My cousin and I met up in the beer garden in the afternoon on a week day, and it was lovely. It's the second time we've gone there and we will go back. The environment is so relaxing, the waiter was just wonderful- and so patient, to, as we dithered about what to order... The beers are always great, such a variety to choose from, and I love the classic mugs that they come in. Everything was great. We had a terrific afternoon, thank you!

We were late for our reservation but the server handled it with great aplomb. Food (grilled cheese/tomato soup and a chicken Caesar) took at least 20 minutes to arrive. But we like Airways a lot to just relax and enjoy a good beer. So no problem for us. Their beers are predictably well above avereage. Their servers are unfailingly personable and attentive ... that's a big ingredient in our loyalty to Airways.

Enjoyed the fried pickles, pretzel with cheese, and combination charcuterie. Washed it down with a pineapple daiquiri. Everything was delicious and the service was great! Looking forward to going back, so much on the menu still left to try.

My favorite place before COVID (and now during)! The outside seating is far apart and shady, and I didn't feel like I was too close to people (yay!). Service is excellent as always, but the menu has shrunk a bit (understandably) since the pandemic hit. Their food is excellent, as is the beer and spirits. Highly recommended if you'd like a fun, local, watering hole with sophistication.

This was the first time I've sat in the beer garden. We went in the early afternoon on a hot day, but found a nice shady, cozy corner. We just had beers, although I've had the Airways food before and it is seriously delicious. The beers were great, the atmosphere and service was relaxed and excellent. It was so comfortable, that my cousin and I actually stayed there chatting and drinking our beers a lot longer than we planned to.

What’s not to love? Great beer with rotating taps, seasonal eats, friendly attentive staff... and as a frequent flyer it hasn’t let me down yet. If you haven’t tried the tarragon aioli with the truffle fries, you are missing out!

If I had to name a downside...it’s on the smaller side and due to popularity seating fills up quick. *Worth the wait though*

Their outdoor space is ideal! Tables were spaced far enough apart and cleaned in between parties, wait staff all wore masks and were very pleasant, disposable menus, and excellent food and beer! It is a perfect place to meet our family from Seattle as we live in Olympia.
