We got together this year for Christmas with our kids who live in the Chicago suburbs. The food was outstanding and our server was great. We will probably do this again next year as our experience was so positive. We would like to try it in the spring, summer, or fall when we can see some skydiving!

Service was good, but the food was just okay. There were 7 of us in our party, and only one of us was happy with our food. We enjoyed the nice weather and sat outside and watched the skydivers.

Food and atmosphere are both equally awesome! You are literally right on the runway of the airport and you get to watch and/or participate in skydiving!!

We had a 6:30 reservation and at 6:45 they shut down the kitchen. They could not keep up with the orders. Didn't get our dinner until 8:40 pm. Couldn't get a drink from the bar either. This has happened to us before on the Fourth of July. We will not go back.

It was a beautiful summer Saturday and the Skydivers from next door were dropping onto the field directly in front of us. Such a treat! The food and drinks were delicious and our waitress didn't rush us off. All in all, a memorable birthday celebration for my (adult) son.

We loved sitting outside and had the pleasure of seeing 3 flights take off and witnessed about 3 dozen jumpers. Beautiful evening to be outdoors with blue skies, good food, and great friends.

It usually gets very busy, so besides a reservation, calling ahead to place your order is a good idea, except the menu has changed, but not on the website (as of beginning of July) and you don't find it out until you call. This is problematic when you have your

I wouldn't recommend using open table for reservations, they never got it. Luckily they were able to find us a table.

I completed my 5th tandem skydive at Chicagoland Skydiving Center Rochelle, IL & made reservations for 12 people at the Flight Deck Bar & Grill to celebrate after. The service was amazing, the food was incredible, & they even held our table reservation 15 minutes longer than I scheduled so that I could finish wrapping up my jump.

We all traveled an hour to get there, and it was worth the drive! Highly recommend it even if you are not skydiving. You can get an amazing view of the skydivers from the safety of the ground & with amazing food and drinks. The pulled pork sliders, bomber wings, & burgers were among our top favorites.

It was a large group, & the Flight Deck accommodated all of us with ease on a busy holiday weekend. The food, the view, & the people are the best!

Thank you Flight Deck & CSC Rochelle for a celebration to remember!

We flew in for a dinner date night and the food was amazing! The only downfall was we made reservations prior to taking flight from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, when we got there they didn't have our reservations at the hostess booth and were afraid there would be no seating since a 20+ party was getting there at the same time. After we got seated though, our waiter and the food were both amazing, we even got the apple dessert. We will be back for sure! :)

Here is the email we received for our reservations prior to showing up (minus the name):

Very good food, excellent service. We are aviation professionals and very much enjoyed the aviation / skydiving theme. Would recommend this to anyone for any reason.
