Service was great, Except for I ordered my prime rib rare. It was supposed to be 16 oz probably was 20. But it was like chewing on a piece of leather because it was medium to well. For some strange reason I did not say nothing and regret it. In which anybody that knows me knows that I really ever hold back anything. Its sad, still will never go there again for $25 a plate that was like chewing on leather. Who am God's green Earth would order prime rib medium well. Fed what was left over at least Half to the dog when I got home.

Love, Love, Love this Salon!!! Friendly, Clean, Organized Salon and Reasonable Pricing too!!! My nails are Perfect!!!! Tech. paid attention to details, along the edges of each nail smooth. I previously went to another nail salon paid almost double and a very bad job. I will be coming here from now on. Fantastic Nail Salon!!!!

A great local steak house. The ribeye sandwich and steak fries was fantastic, I highly recommend. Very friendly and excellent service. Everyone was very happy.

Review №4

One of my favorite places. The food is always great and the beer is colder than a polar bears toenails.

Review №5

Looking for an old style tavern, with a great grill and old style eatery, this is the place! Locals come here for a no frills bar that blends in to a good size side room that caters to a family style eatery, with a sizzlers in two sizes, along with all the fixes that would satisfy the whole family!! Friday is their sizzlers day... Any day does it for me..a must try

I enjoyed my eating experience at Airport Tavern, they have a wide variety of food, excellent steaks, wet burrito, salads , teriyaki chicken, I had the half rack of BBQ ribs, and my friend had a six ounce sizzler steak, the food was delicious and filling , and the service was great along with a friendly and helpful staff, looking forward to returning soon.

Review №10

Great food and service like the atmosphere on the patio. Everyone was wearing mask felt safe.

Review №11

Review №12

Very good service and my steak was so good

Review №13

Friendly environment and always have a good time there. Staff and owner are amazing there!

Review №14

A guy I work with recommended the ribeye sandwich and we were not disappointed- I was thinking it would be a shaved beef kind of deal but it was not- it was an actual while ribeye laid on two pieces of Texas toast - very good! Nice atmosphere, keno for those that play and the only thing I didn't like was the fries - wrinkle cut or whatever. Not a fan of the fries!

Review №15

The service and food are always great!

Review №16

What a great place in Lansing. Welcoming and fun. I had the sizzler and loved it. Our server was amazing. Kelly, but make sure you ask her if she's spelling it right, was great.This place does everything right!

Review №17

I was there the first day they reopened on June 8. Had a bloody mary, shot some pool and had the best ribeye sandwich! The restaurant was spotless, service was awesome and tables were spread out for social distancing. I felt very safe there and thoroughly enjoyed a much needed meal out after being cooped up for so long. Their menu is limited but still had a really good selection. Definitely try the ribeye sandwich!

Review №18

Kind of a dive but super cozy and fun. Friendly staff and entertaining regulars. Food is great. I will go there again.

Review №19

Amazing food and great friendly service. Highly recommended

Review №20

Love the sizzlers. But everything Pete makes is awesome. Friendly people!

Review №21

Best Burger I've had in quite a while. Great service and quiet atmosphere. Will be going back for sure

Review №22

Just magnificent food. ;) They always make GREAT food for us. I keep going back.

Review №23

The place has been there forever. The food is outstanding. You are never a stranger. The wait staff is friendly. Maybe overly so. Formality is just a word in a book at this establishment. It's all part of the charm. My waitress reminded me of my late sister. So, if you are looking for a family friendly atmosphere with excellent food, this place is for you.

Review №24

Food was really tasty. I got the fried chicken and it was juicier than any chicken I think I've ever had. Waitress was very friendly and attentive and food was served fast. Great experience!

Review №25

Good food and good service

Review №26

Who puts a half pound of bacon on a sandwich? They do. Prime rib is great. Drinks are reasonsble. Great neighborhood eatery for fifty years try. Try it.

Review №27

Greatfood. Great service! Great drinks!!!

Review №28

I can't believe I haven't left a review for the Tavern before. Excellent atmosphere, great food, get the green beans with whatever you're ordering. Order steak a little under the doneness you're expecting. They close early so get in before 10PM.

Review №29

When there is a dinner rush, there is no seating.Went there for the prime rib special, no where to sit, or to wait for a table. It is a long time staple in the community, they need more staff for their prime rib specials if they can fit anymore people in there.

Review №30

Food is slightly pricey, the drinks are watered down and food is average.

Review №31

Great place... very friendly great staff..

Review №32

The steak was good. Overall, I would go back and have the sizzler again. Good food, good service.

Review №33

Pretty good spot that's been around for years ! This is our first time and we will definitely be back.We walked in and were greeted by everyone we passed. We were told to seat ourselves. It was starting to get busy and I was worried it was going to be long wait for service and or food. Yhe atmosphere had 80 and 90s rock playing and you can hear sports the screens even with all of th people and the hustle and bussle.of the kitchen, it was still a pretty decent volumn in the restaurant.I am not sure our waitress name (she never gave it) but she was awesome.I ordered a 6 oz (medium cook)sirloin with green beans and rice pilaf that came with texas toast. My husband ordered a double cheese burger, added bacon, lettuce, tomato,pickle and mustard with fries.The food came out very fast, the waitress was nice and attentive.The cook on my steak was a tad over done but nothing worth complaining about. It was very flavorful and didn't need the A1 I asked for. The green beans could have used a little salt and less garlic if you are partial to garlic but were good.My husbands burger was cooked to perfection and humungous. Each patty was 1/3 lb and super juicy. He couldn't even finish it. He did try.Everything came to about $27 without any drinks other than a Sprite.

Review №34

I love this place. Quiet, classy ambiance, great food as always. Service with a smile.

Review №35

We have been to the Airport tavern many times and probably go there on average once a month.The food is always excellent and the servers are second to none especially tonight.I am still going to give them a 5 star rating as it is not their fault, but tonight the experience was not as good.A group of about 8 sat down close to us and we had to listen to the ‘f and s' words from a grown woman in the party, worse still accompanied by teenage children.Again not Airport taverns fault, we were going to stay longer but did not wish to listen to profanity over dinner. We did not wish to make a scene, a group of 8 or so is a big check on a quiet night, but Managers need to be more aware of the way Customers come into a public place and think it is okay to do this without any consideration for others.

Review №36

Always enjoy stopping in and grabbing a quick drink. Bar tender is super nice (sadly I cant remember her name) and prices are good.

Review №37

Friendly staff & the steak was very tender.

Review №38

Review №42

Best Olive Burger around!

Review №43

Good festive atmosphere. Service good but waitresses was very busy. Food was only so-so. The salad was swimming in water, prime rib was very fatty. The green beans were the surprise fresh and with garlic they were delicious.

Review №44

Cuban sandwich was excellent!!

Review №45

The sirloin was delicious and fresh green beans. Just good food overall in an unassuming atmosphere

Review №46

Located on Grand River Avenue near the airport, I had the T-bone steak but it was more like a Porterhouse. It was large and delicious. Service was quick and staff very friendly and accommodating. They have a well-stocked bar and cold beer. The establishment was clean as were the restrooms.

Review №47

Just a nice comfy place to relax and have a really good steak dinner , lots of other things on the menu too , nice friendly wait staff

Review №48

Prices are OUTRAGEOUS (With holding peace sign

Review №49

Good hamburgers. Nice thick bacon!

Review №50

Sizzler steak with mushrooms, we can always count on a great meal!!

Review №51

The steak was done to order and tasty. Baked potato was cooked perfectly. I had beef and barley soup as a side and it was good as well. If the place were mine, I would do something to mitigate the must smell. I'm pretty sure it was the carpet.

Review №52

Worst service known to man. Food came out undercooked. Place is cold even though it's cold outside.

Review №53

Best Philly Cheesesteak in Lansing area !!

Review №60

Best place with great history.

Review №61

Want a16oz T-Bone steak, baked potato, and fresh green beans for $20.14 out the door? (Take out)Or an 8 ounce sirloin for $13 or a 6 ounce sirloin for $11?In an era of "We Fry, You Die" restaurant chains, the Airport Tavern offers a healthy alternative to those places and pricey submarine sandwich spots.Pound for pound, or ounce for ounce, the Airport Tavern has the best tasting steak in the Lansing Area for its price and the waitress was stellar.I admit the ambiance isn't that of its more expensive/well-known counterparts, but the food was fantastic and all the patrons & staff were cordial.I was pleasantly surprised!

Review №62

The woman with the short black hair is a phenomenal waitress. Always good service. Great steaks and onion rings. Hidden gem.

Review №71

Best olive burger in Lansing!!!

Review №72

I want to start off by saying that my server was fabulous. She tries so hard to make me happy but my food was down right awful. My steak was raw and I found hair in my rice AND in my salad! Look, maybe someone just dropped the ball tonight but I will not be returning.

Review №73

Good food. They have a long history in the area. Known for their steaks but I had a great taco salad the other say. My buddy likes the Palmer burger. Sports bar / restaurant. Right by the Capital Airport.

Review №77

Service was very slow but the food was great.

Review №78

Review №79

Awesome tavern to grab a beer and some food, the wings are delicious and their tavern specialty teriyaki chicken is amazing. Cold beer and friendly staff.

Review №80

Good food good prices

Review №81

The food is mediocre at best. One end of my sizzler steak was tasty, though so there's that. The rest was overcookeddry chewy and didn't taste good either. The salad was iceberg lettuce, a single cherry tomato and two cucumber slices. The crinkle cut fries were okay. Crown brand "fancy tomato ketchup"? No thanks.

Review №82

Awesome place! In town for a business trip and stopped here before leaving. Wish we had one in Minnesota! I almost never finish a burger, but I did here (because it was so good)! People were cool too.

Review №83

Great Gem! Delicious food and very nicely priced.
