This is a pretty fun place. Lots of happy people and even some dancing on the patio. But my favorite thing about the 94th is the Sunday brunch but not because of the eggs. The best thing is the group of swingers that meet there once a month for brunch and to talk a little too loudly about swinging. They are mostly older couples but man they know how to enjoy life like no group I have ever seen.

I have been to their Sunday Brunch a couple of times now. When you come here you have to take into account the both the food and the venue, because if it's just for the food, then it's overpriced. On nice days the patio dining is wonderful, and after your meal you can move to the grassy area and continue the conversation with a drink and a cigar or whatever. Foodwise, the omelet station is top notch and breakfast items are par with everyone else. Lunch entrees items however can be iffy; some items taste like there wasn't much care to it, probably because it's bulk produced and made to move. But because there are so many to choose, one should always find something to please. Also, the dessert selection is wide and the champagne is bottomless. If you come to 94th Aero for a complete experience, and not just for a brunch, you will be more than pleased...

I was very satisfied with my dining experience at 94th Aero Squad which is in the Kearny Mesa area. I was a little discouraged to go in because the parking lot was FULL. I found out that Friday nights is Hip Hop night. I had no idea but I could hear the music from the entrance and it sounded pretty good. The food was GREAT!! I would highly recommend going here to enjoy a nice evening.

My family took my mom to 94th Aero Squadron here in San Diego for her 95th birthday but what a big mistake! They sat us at the very end of the restaurant where it was so dark, no windows and no air condition. We spoke to the manager that we wanted to sit by the windows or at least where there was more lighting and where it was cooler. We did not have to sit all together in one table but at least close together but the manager was not accommodating at all. We were even there before they were opened so there were plenty of seats available. Service was not great either. We had to call a few of times for someone to refill our drinks. We chose that restaurant because we were celebrating a very special occasion but needless to say, we were very disappointed. It was also the first time for some of my family members to try that restaurant but I can guarantee you, we will never go there again!

Really! That theme restaurant is still operating after more than thirty years? I'd have not been a bit surprised to learn that it had folded back in the late 80's. My experiences are ancient history, but the food there was not the attraction. The gimmick was.

Hey...it says at the top of this the cuisine is American. Isn't it French? Or "French American" or something like that?

I've been here about 15 times. The food doesn't do much for me, but it's one of my stepdads favorite places. And the theme is cool. A few of my friends that are pilots like going there. I believe at the bar you can listen on headphones, as you watch the planes landing at the nearby Montogomery Field.

I've always thought the food on their buffets (fathers day, or brunch), not to be as good as just ordering off the menu.
