We frequently dine here with friends or just the 2 of us, we've never had a bad meal. We always try to call ahead due to limited seating and the fact that it's always busy, no matter what. Bad weather doesn't even keep customers away. Great food, service and drinks. It's our favorite.

Really enjoy going to The Runway. Have known the owners for a while and they have done such a nice job! Wonderful chef! Delicious meals! My husband loves the T-Bone! I love the filet and Mahi mahi!

Had dinner with a couple friends on a Friday. 2 of us had the Hawaii broiled fish and the other person had the pork tenderloin. Reservations are recommended and the place was packed. It's small and has a bar. The food, service and atmosphere are great here. Highly recommend trying this place out

I didn't know what to expect.... Just visited the area and stopped in. Absolutely perfect... Wow!!! I'm am so impressed and satisfied with the entire meal and service! The best experience I have had in years dining out. We watched a plane land while dining to decadent food and lovely music. A++++++ in our experience! You will not be disappointed!

It's a small restaurant with great food. People drive from miles around and actually wait by the airplane gates to get in. The scallops I ordered were very well cooked, flavorful and tender enough to melt in your mouth. However, the menu is widely varied so everyone is sure to find something to suit their taste buds.

We stopped here based on the recommendation of TripAdvisor as there wasn't much in the local area, which if you've searched you'll already know! It took us a bit to find it, as we didn't realise it was in the airport itself and our sat-nav was a bit confused as to where it was - it tried to send us... More

You can now fly to Pittsburgh for around 30 bucks, each way, and have a great dinner when you come back to Bradford ! This place is well run, great food, a real gem in the woods. Good food, nice atmosphere at the airport in the woods. Hard to find Manhattan chowder every other Friday, which I really like. Most... More

we decided to go for an anniversary dinner, impromptu, and even though we didn't have a reservation, the wait at the fully stocked bar was short. the menu is delicious and fresh, but you better call ahead if you have plans or special dietary needs. going during the day for the lunch specials lets you watch the runway traffic.
