    Classic place. Family owned and operated started in 1959. Quite dark inside. Leather booths. Most known for steak. Entree comes with salad or soup. Wine list with a variety of choices and reasonable markup over retail. Good service.

    Favorite Dish: Filet Mignon. good meat nicely cooked. Crab cakes are also good.

    A hole in the wall in a tiny strip mall. Clean, clean though. Usually the same one guy running everything himself.

    Favorite Dish: Pad Tha. Uses the thin noodles, fresh limes, chopped peanuts, fresh and crispy bean threads. He'll cook it as hot or mild as you wish. Can get with chicken or shrimp or fish. One lunch serving for $8 is a LARGE lunch for two days, and I'm not a light eater - and there's plenty besides the noodles!

    Last week I didn't even realized they had a commercial airport in Flint, Michigan. Last week I dropped a co-worker off at the airport to fly home and 3 days ago I flew into and out of the same airport on business.

    This is Michigan's 3rd largest airport after Detroit and Grand Rapids serving a little more then 1 million passengers per year. I upped that number by 2 this week as I flew in on a Tuesday night flight arriving about midnight from Chicago and then took off back to Chicago the next day on a 6:00 p.m. flight (alright it didn't take off until 7:45 p.m., but that was O'Hare's low cloud ceiling problem and nothing to do with this airport).

    The airport is very convenient to where I stayed (about 7 minutes away and about 9 minutes from our local Pepsi facility where I was based for the day). It is located at one edge of town and easy to get into and out of from the surrounding highways.

    There are 5 airlines that service the airport going to several midwest USA destinations (Chicago, Milwaukee, Cleveland, Minneapolis, Detroit) and several destinations in the south (Atlanta and several seasonal locations is Florida). The Florida locations operate mainly in the cold winter months so the Northern Snow Birds (people who lives in the Northern part of the U.S.) can go south for the winter for vacations or their winter homes.

    Very pleasant little airport with plenty of seating, a few spots to eat, and a business center with very comfortable seats and of course the airport bar inside of security for those who need that extra encouragement or dulling affect for their flight (they don't make money off of me).

    As the pictures show, this is a very clean and open airport. They have several metal glider sculptures located throughout the airport. I found 3 while I was there a took a picture of the one at the inside front of the facility

Flint Warnings and Dangers

  • by Jetsam01 Written Mar 3, 2012

    The North End and the East Side tend to have high crime. Little reason to wander around those areas, really. Downtown is fairly safe if you stay on the beaten path. Flint is not as dangerous as they claim as long as you aren't hanging around places you 'shouldn't be'.
