The service was good and friendly while have a good view of the air field. The lasagna was tasty at a good price. Salad was a little lame but not awful. Its a good place to stop in an area with not too much around it.

Service is always excellent. Different "special" dinners every day of the week. All excellent. Personally the Baked Steak is a favorite- but also have othergood meals. Dessert/bakery items are home-made and taste that way....YUMMY!

If you love home-made pies [as I do] you'll enjoy this restaurant. As others have mentioned, it's a cozy spot, with an enjoyable airport view, an old-timey atmosphere, tasty home-style food (nothing fancy), and friendly service. If you order one of the fruit pies, ask the waitress to warm your pie and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Oh... More

I grew up in Urbana & always look forward to going to the Airport Cafe when I go home. Small & cozy little spot that's very popular with locals & stop off pilots who drop in for the eats & especially the pie. Great selection from sandwiches to dinners and reasonably priced. A must stop if you're in Urbana.

If you desire a place to watch the planes come in and out, while catching a meal and listening to the locals this is the place to visit.

Great service, but food just average. Nothing really stood out: stamped cod fillet, iceberg salad, okay beets. Not a place I will seek out again.

When ever I have someone come to town for the first time, this is a must go. Their breakfast is the best you will get anywhere. The burgers are great too. The staff is helpfully and friendly. And when you are done, no matter how full you are, you have to get some of the pie they are famous for.... More

Great for breakfast or a cheeseburger. And to stop off and see the B17 progress. Can't wait to see it finished. Champagne Lady.

This is a typical diner in terms of the food but an a-typical diner in terms of the location. At the county airfield is a very pleasant place to sit and watch the airplanes land, fuel up, and take off. I can't imagine anyone is flying in to eat here but... perhaps? Although the food is obviously canned, the portions... More

The Airport Cafe is located at Grimes Field, the Urbana, Ohio airport. Farm raised beef of the owner is served and of high quality. They also serve many other meals that are homemade. The homemade pies are a highlight for many customers.
