Good food it was fun watching the airplanes come in and land and takeoff. The wings are good so are the burgers.

The food was good but the service was severely lacking. The young lady did the best she could but it was hard for her to handle all the tables. Shame on management for not having more help, we won't be back.

We returned to the Flying Machine after many years, having seen many of our friends dining here recently. We were not disappointed. Good sandwiches, nice portions, and very friendly and efficient service from Nicole. Very nice Caesar salad (large), yummy open face Reubens, and hearty...More

Can't believe I grew up and Coatesville and never went to this place. It's tucked away on airport road and you have to follow the signs to find it. I have to say, they had the best hot wings I've ever had. There was only...More

An unusual place for lunch, food is very good and atmosphere is pleasant, and close enough to the flight lines you can watch take-offs and landings, be surprised at the types of aircraft in use at our local airport
