Who We Are

We started our business in October of 2019 with one goal in mind: providing an enjoyable dining experience like no other in the Jackson area. This hidden gem, located in the Jackson County Airport, offers a view like no other. Watch the planes land and park right outside your window, as you enjoy our wonderful breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. All of our food is prepared to order using only fresh ingredients. 
Our full service bar adds to your dining experience. Enjoy the coldest domestic and craft beers around,  or sip on a classic cocktail. If that isn’t enough try our variety of Michigan wines. 
Enjoy food, drinks, and live entertainment on our 3,800 sq ft. patio next to the planes. 

Our Food

Food for Every Mood

Breakfast Dishes

We have always been known for our breakfast. Sausage gravy made daily never out of a can, our biscuits are warm and grilled prior to serving. We crack every egg prior to cooking, no egg beaters here! Every omelette is made with three eggs and served with hash browns or home fries hand cut in our kitchen. Try one of our dishes today!

Breakfast Tacos

Sweet pancake batter loaded with ground sausage, scrambled eggs bacon, and cheese. Topped with your choice of maple syrup, sausage gravy or our house made salsa. Are you ready for this culinary sensation?


A little play on words here, we are in an airport after all. Layovers are our appetizers. Try one of them as you watch the planes and sip on a cocktail or drinking a cold draft beer. We offer Smoked whitefish from Caledonia, MI, Hottzarella sticks, Chicken Teriyaki pot stickers, Caperese salad, Breaded Asian Shrimp battered with our house dry seasoning, we have something for everyone.

Fish n Chips

The long awaited fish is finally here. Day or night, our fresh cod or pollock is the dish you’ve been craving. Deep fried in our house made dry batter and served with our hand cut French fries that will keep you craving for more.

Protein Bowl

Another crowd pleaser our protein bowl is becoming a go to meal for our customers. Starting with a bed of jasmine rice topped with braised black beans, smoked pulled pork, then topped with our house made pico & white cheddar cheese.

Cobb Salad

Many restaurants have their own take on this recipe, but we’re confident that ours is the best, always prepared to perfection. Share it with friends or have it all to yourself—you’ll enjoy it till the very last bite.

Pesto Mozzarella Grilled Cheese

This grilled cheese is out of this world! Grilled on our Detroit sourdough bread then loaded with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and finished with house made pesto.

Smoked Pulled Pork Tacos

Three grilled cord tortillas loaded with seasoned smoked pulled pork, shredded mozzarella, diced onion, and cilantro. Served with a scoop of jasmine rice, braised black beans, and a side of our roasted salsa verde. If the pulled pork isn't your thing, try one of our other three options of tacos! Grilled chicken tacos, shrimp tacos, or our fish tacos. We are sure you will find one to fall in love with.


Try one of our many Classic or handcrafted cocktails. Our classic cocktails are a hit with many of our regulars. We take pride in our classics and keep them as close to the original versions as possible. We offer everything from an old fashion to our very own Go Blue cocktail. The recipe we use for the whiskey sour was rated #2 in the world (not created here).
