Colorado Springs, Colorado: Dine in a Plane

A full-size airplane, with wing extending into the "normal" restaurant, can be boarded for in-cabin dining. Too bad eating on an airborne plane isn't this much fun.

Dine in a Plane

We went here for dinner. Food and service was good, but the real fun is eating in the plane and playing in the cockpit (which is highly encouraged). Dress is casual, children are welcome. The bar/dining room and entry are decorated with aviation memorabilia and the staff is dressed like flight crew. Altogether a fun experience.

Dine in a Plane

The food in the plane was actually amazing, I had chicken strips and my boyfriend had ribs. Both were awesome and this place is just flat out cool! Totally worth the detour when you're in or around the Springs.

This was an amazing experience. You literally get to eat inside the plane. The wait staff is awesome and the food is very good! A must do when in Colorado Springs!

Dine in a Plane

This was a fun alternative to eating at a chain. The food was mediocre according to the rest of my family, but the Blackened Salmon Ceasar Salad was yummy. The biggest drawback is that the quietness of eating in the airplane restaurant makes for awkward conversation. Perhaps they could pipe in music or something? We could hear the conversation two tables away perfectly and it was annoying. The kids had fun playing in the cockpit.

Dine In A Plane

Had good food and a nice time. You don't have to sit in the plane, but why else go if you aren't going to? After lunch and great milk shakes, we sat in the cockpit for a few moments, pretending to fly the plane. It's a must stop for lunch.
