Columbia Mom EATS :: Flight Deck


Your four year old nephew is in town to hang out with your three year old daughter. The kids have been cooped up inside all day while you and your sister work from your house. Where should you take them for dinner to burn off a little extra energy? The Flight Deck in Lexington!

Flight Deck is an aviation-themed family restaurant. Pictures of planes and helicopters cover the walls, and replicas adorn the ceiling and tables of the dining area. My daughter was only mildly interested in the planes, but she was super excited to get up-close-and-personal with King Kong, Spider Man, and Superman.

The menu ranges from blue plate specials to pub fare to Greek food. There is something for everyone! I had the Avenger – a pita filled with grilled chicken – and it was delicious. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed her pizza, and my nephew happily gobbled up his Kid’s Torpedo (a fried corndog). 

The restaurant also serves a wide variety of specialty cocktails and divine-looking desserts. My sister and I left with a couple of chocolate chip cookies. They were the perfect bedtime snack!

Our favorite part of Flight Deck is the arcade. I played a shooting game with my daughter and my nephew. The kids played racing games, karate games, and even carnival style games. They even got to ride a mini carousel and a tiny space plane. 


We had so much fun at the Flight Deck. We’ll definitely be making another trip to win more prize tickets and enjoy a slice or two of cheesecake!

Flight Deck is located at 109 Old Chapin Rd, Lexington

Hours: Monday – Saturday, 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. (closed on Sunday)
