    Our visit to 94th Aerosquadron was exceptional. Our server, Shari, greeted us with a smile and was very attentive. The brunch buffet was expansive and each selection was delicious. We walked around inside before we left just to remember it as this would be our last visit. So sad that they are closing but it was wonderful while it lasted. Thanks 94 Aerosquadron for many good memories.

    The food is rough. The jalapeño poppers are clearly from the freezer and the artichoke dip is not from scratch. The ambiance is lovely and I love watching the planes come in and out. Vibe is great, food is not.

    Worst dining experience in a long time. They need to close now. Food was terrible. Spinach artichoke dips was worse than the crap that comes in a jar. Had to send back our pasta because the sauce was refrigerator cold like they literally poured sauce from the fridge on the past and sent it out. Servers were nice but only two of them with way too many tables.

    Reservations were made for a Wednesday visit @ 5:30p. I wanted to visit before this establishment closes its doors for good. The wife and I have been here before and there was never any disappointment. The food was portioned well and brought to the table hot. The waitress made sure to check in on us when she could (NOTE: The later it got the busier the 94th became). I’m sure the news of its closing has increased the number of visiting patrons. Margret (host) was cordial, friendly and engaging. The wife roamed around the business and purchased a few historical items before departing. I will miss this place. Thank you to the 94th for the memories!!!

    It had been a while since we last visited this place, but it hasn't lost a beat! We were greeted warmly by GM Margaret upon arrival, and taken to a window seat. Our waitress Cinthia came quickly, and took terrific care of us all evening, making sure everything was perfect. Our drinks were well prepared, appetizers were tasty, and the meals were amazing. I can't recall ever having a tastier filet anywhere else! No room for desert, but we took an apple walnut cake slice home with us, and were glad we did. After dinner, we had a nice chat with Margaret and reminisced about the history of this wonderful restaurant. We love four hours away, but plan to get back again soon. Please ignore the gripers and get to the 94th soon before it closes for good. You won't regret it, and will have a visit to remember!

    Not a good visit to the 94th. Service was terribly slow. People around us were served and finished dinner before we received our order. My wife’s stake was ordered medium well. It was served rare. It took ten minutes to find our server and have the stake returned and cooked to appropriate temperature. That ten minute wait put a huge negative spin on our meal. My stake was cook fine, but I added shrimp to my order. The shrimp had whole pepper corns on each of the three shrimp. I’m not sure what the chief was thinking. Not good shrimp. We reviewing our check, their were items on the check that we didn’t order. Our server said it wasn’t her fault because she was in a hurry. We know the 94th is closing later this year. We probably won’t go back. Too many issues for the $140+ cost. On the positive side, best French Onion soup I’ve ever had. Salads were simple and delicious. Bread too!!

    Server Cynthia was very good - she was the best part of the dinner for the 8 of us. The food was ok. Good but not great - not flavorful. The windows out to the airport were so bad you couldn't see clearly to watch anything, although frankly there wasn't much activity to view. There was a sewer smell and we determined it came from the restrooms since one of our party used the women's and said it was awful in there. 6 of the 8 of us said we wouldn't return.

    Ambiance = excellent. Food and cocktails = excellent. Service = excellent. We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this restaurant. This place is a real gem. We will be coming back here to celebrate our anniversary and we live two hours away. We were married at their sister restaurant, The 365th Fighter Group in North Canton, and we miss it so. This is a great alternative for us. Please go and check out this wonderful restaurant with its World War II theme. A relaxing place to eat and to be completely spoiled and pampered. Cynthia was our server and she was very polite, professional, and accommodating. We were a party of five and everyone had nothing but great things to say about their meals. We can't wait to go back!

    We have eaten here before and this is why we chose to bring out of town guests. We arrived at 5:50 for a 6:00 pm reservation. They were seating people after we came in. We had to ask 3 times and finally was seated at 6:30. They gave us one menu and three veterans meal. (Ret Col, 2Captains veterans). Charlie was suppose to be our server, but no one came to give us any water. After waiting 20 mins, we picked up and left. I addressed the hostess. She was frazzled and the other hostess girl said I don’t know why she set you back there. Needless to say, I am sure the night even got worse. Sad to see how Veterans were treated with poor management and lack of servers.

    Drainage problems give off an odor, even in the dining room, worse in the bathroom area. Server was very curt but efficient. Understandably so: she didn't want to be there. Crab stuffed mushrooms might have been spoiled. Caesar salad was flavorless as was the bread and spread. A side of mashed potatoes was ordered for a sensitive tummy as the only meal and was embarrassingly skimpy. Piped in music was too loud. Windows were filthy and glare from the inside lighting interfered with seeing any airplane activity. Signage and road entrance lighting is very poor. How do they stay in business? The weekly dance parties must be phenomenal.

    This is a delightful setting, fascinating historical objects in a wonderful space reminiscent of WW2 Normandy. I love the fireplaces. We were there on the early end and it was very quiet. The prime rib was good. The sides were not piping hot, but tasty enough. Calamari very chewy, would not recommend, but the kids loved the cheesy potato skins.

    I believe this beloved restaurant needs an infusion of tlc and cash if it’s going to survive. We came to 94th on Sunday for my birthday. It has been one of my favorite places to go for over 40 years, but I was absolutely heartbroken at how neglected it has become. The first thing that hits you as you enter the restaurant is the stench from the bathrooms. There are major plumbing/sewage issues that need to be addressed. God forbid you actually have to use the restroom — you find out just how long you can hold your breath. I was disappointed that the brunch set up had been changed to the bar area. Our last brunch pre-COVID was set up in charming stations in the dining half of the restaurant, and had much more to choose from. The offerings this weekend were extremely basic and limited. I understand the Herculean level of difficulty and effort it took to get the business through COVID, but people are willing to spend their money again on good food, ambience, and the experience that a place like 94th used to offer. Bring her back to her formal glory, invest in her. Assuming you have the funding to return the menu to its former standard of quality and selection, then I would attack the following areas: 1. FIX THE SEWAGE PROBLEM. 2. Deep clean. There shouldn’t be cobwebs anywhere. 3. Replace all carpeting and upholstery. They are way past being cleaned. They produce off putting musty/moldy smells now. 4. Get rid of the hotel conference room chairs, they don’t belong in that aesthetic. Put upholstered chairs in the dining area mixed in with the wooden chairs. Bar should have chairs you would have found in an officers club for that era. 5. Replace broken/damaged flooring/baseboards/stripping. 6. Re-whitewash walls. 6. Overhaul the restrooms. They look like something out of a mall in the 80s. In keeping with the mix of WWI-WWII decor and memorabilia, they should look like something from that era. Wish I had the money to do all this for her. She sorely needs it.
