We needed lunch for almost 30 people after a memorial service. We worked with Stephanie who recommended a menu of lemon pepper chicken, lasagna, new potatoes, salad, mixed vegetables, dinner rolls and two types of cake for dessert (chocolate and carrot). We also had water, iced tea and soft drinks. We arrived earlier than expected, but the room was set... More

First time at the restaurant. Stopped for dinner. Service was good. Nice variety menu. Pasta dishes recommended. Ordered ziti pasta and shrimp scampi. Food was very good. Came with salad bowl and homemade focaccia bread. Would definitely recommend and go back again.

This is the best Italian restaurant that I have ever eaten in. The dish is prepared at the time of ordering. I had fusillade with sausage and mushrooms. The pasta was homemade and the mushrooms were sliced fresh for my meal. Wow! My friend asked for cocktail sauce for a meal that did not usually use it, and it was... More

I never cease to be amazed at the Main Hangar innovators! This time it was Ten, Ten minute comedy sketches combined with dinner! The food was fabulous. We were seated with fun, interesting people, the service was great and the skits were first rate and very professional! If you're looking for something fun and different, keep up with what's going...

We stopped in the Main Hanger on Saturday evening as we had not been there for a long time. The restaurant had very few patrons with the exception of a party in a private room. We decided against dinner seeing so few people in the dining room & opted to have a drink at the bar & requested a menu.... More

We had hours to wait for a flight, so tried the lunch buffet. The food was decent buffet food & we enjoyed it. It was fine for the price. The waiter was friendly and attentive. I was drinking beer and we were welcoming to stay at our table while waiting, which was a couple hours.

We had no idea this place existed. Thankfully, a client of mine recommended it. This is actually IN the Decatur Airport "Main Hangar". The Decatur Airport is not a huge concern, and it is kind of out on the edge of town. Go find it! Everything was great from the moment we walked in. Helpful wait staff, full menu of... More

The food is average. Nothing special. One of the people in my group ordered a medium cooked steak and came completely under cooked!

Came here for the sunday brunch buffet today, they were serving a small section of hot food. Stale eggo waffles, rock hard miniature pancakes, corn syrup, reformed watery ham, old dry tater tots (for brunch?!), burnt bacon that tasted microwaved, biscuits from a tin and gravy out of the packet. Seriously don't understand the reviews for this place. Total bill... More

The food is delicious! The Lasagna Soup is made from scratch and to-die-for delicious. I would highly recommend to everyone. Prices comparable to popular chain restaurants.
