94th Aero Squadron Restaurant

I drove by the 94th Aerosquadron Restaurant today and there is nothing left. The parking lot has been torn out and is now dirt, and there is nothing left of the building. It has been demolished, and the plane and jeep are no longer on the grounds. Everything has been obliterated.

Airplane at 94th Aero Squadron Restaurant

I went by the restaurant and the airplane is gone. The jeep is still there, but it has been moved to the back of the parking lot. It is no longer close to Sawyer Road. There are no signs saying what the fate of the property is, but the plane is definitely gone and the restaurant is closed.

Airplane Outside 94th Aero Squadron

The 94th Aero Squadron restaurant property has been sold and the restaurant is closed, but the plane and other artifacts are still visible. I'm not sure what their fate is, and if another restaurant will take the place of the old one.

94th Aero Squadron Restaurant

The 94th Aero Squadron Restaurant, outside of the airport, has a World War II theme for each room. Outside there is a lot more to see.

94th Aero Squadron HQ.

94th Aero Squadron

This place is named after the 94th Aero Squadron, one of the most famous of the early American air force units (Columbus native and American ace Eddie Rickenbacker flew with these guys). Situated between the runways at Port Columbus, it gives you great views of incoming and outbound flights, but you have to ask for the window seats to get those views.

Even if you don't eat, they will allow you to walk around and look at all the funky memorabilia, found in virtually all corners, and on the lawn and patio areas! If you are hungry, they have one of the best Sunday brunches in town.
