The FLIGHT DECK is a VIP lounge and tribute to Naval Aviation. Hidden in plain sight top of the San Diego Pier, it's a unique experience for all adults with a true appreciation for naval aviation. We offer hand-crafted cocktails featuring aviators’ favorites, rotating taps, a select wine list, posh shared plates, and midnight rations (mid rats, familiar to all naval carrier personnel). The FLIGHT DECK overlooks Naval Air Station North Island, the USS Midway Museum, busy San Diego Bay, and charming Seaport Village boardwalk. We’re honored to share LTJG “Butch” Bucciarelli's passion for Naval aviation with you. Come for the fantastic views, fresh seafood and appetizers, great drinks, and camaraderie of this intimate venue.

Loved the location and atmosphere. Great views. Delicious drinks. A little difficult to find the first time, but this is also part of the draw of a “speak easy”.

Quite laid back spot tucked up and away. Beautiful views that’s a unknown spot. Fries are crispy yet soft in the center. Cheese bread and sliders great. Just go already.

The drinks were okay, not worth the price, I didn't get a chance to try the food but overall it didnt feel like a speakeasy and the ambiance was lacking.

The view alone was enough for 5 stars. I don’t normally order off the specialty cocktail list, but The Aviator looked too good to pass up and it was really good. We had the crab cakes and the lobster roll and both were delicious! We will definitely be back.

Great Navy aeronautics themed cocktail bar with a view that competes with the best in the bay. They have small plates that looked good but we didn’t try them.

They didn't earn a 1... to get to the comments you must choose stars... unfortunately when we arrived for our reservation the lovely hostess informed us that the space was closed.

We were seated on a lower level at the Pier Cafe with a wonderful view and sever.

We hope to return when the Flight Deck is open ( so disappointing it wasn't open)

This was a great find! Absolutely beautiful setting right on the water... it was like sitting over the water. The bartender was great and made amazing drinks. Highly recommend visiting... especially if you love being on the ocean watching a beautiful sunset sipping tasty drinks and snacks...
