Tucked away next to PDK airport, this little place was an unexpected crowd pleaser. Admittedly, I was fairly skeptical as we navigated the kudzu lined road that looks like a scene from a war era movie, but at the other end of the road we found this lovely restaurant bustling with satisfied customers. The crawfish cake was absolutely out of this world. Everyone's steaks were expertly prepared; mine came topped with a wonderful port sauce that nearly drove me to lick the plate clean. It was lovely to sit by the back picture window and watch the planes come and go. Great fun, great food. We went for dinner, but I'd imagine the lunch atmosphere would be nice as well. 57th deserves serious Bravo Zulus.

57th Fighter Group is a really unique restaurant concept. You feel like you have stepped back in time when you walk through the front door. I've only been for lunch, but the food is amazing. The crab cakes are some of the best I've had. And the service is spectacular - everyone is so friendly and smiling. And in the dining room, you get a front row seat where you can watch the planes take off and land at PDK.

The 57th was awesome. Nice WWII theme. There were sandbags inside like a bunker and planes outside the building. Sit out back and watch the planes land and take off. Too bad they closed.

I would not reccoment this restaurant to anyone for brunch. If you make a reservation, it means nothing. After waiting 45 minutes past my reservation time, we seemed to be forgotten about and were never seated. Terrible management!!!

Very cool place. It's all decorated in the WWII theme. They play oldies music and have radio broadcasts from that time. Some of the walls are covered in sandbags. They have some very private booths that looked really nice. The food was very good, but a little expensive. Highly recommended, though! :)

Fun atmosphere - FANTASTIC patio with pit fires, good mudslides, friendly bartenders, waitress in the dance area was... inattentive. Overall it was fun. Food is a bit pricey though.

If you ever go to 57th Fighter Group, you have to go for brunch. It can be a little pricy but well worth it. They have a ton to choose from - .typical breakfast items, sliced meats, cooked dishes, salads, desserts. Attire is on the dressy side.

I love this place. The atmosphere is great, the food is even better and the dessert, well I will let it speak for itself. It is next to PDK airport, so get a seat by the window and enjoy the planes taking off and landing.

Great place to dine and watch the private plane taking off and landing if you're at the right spot and time. My husband loves going there some time. Also a good place if you just want to hang out with a bunch of friends for a quick drink. Always quite busy on weekends.

This is a great venue when you want entertainment with your meal. The seating along the air strip is an unusual view and the memorabilia always gets conversation going. We have special family events there from time to time and the food/service is always great.
