You Can Watch Planes Land At This Underrated Restaurant In Florida
When you think of Florida restaurants with a view, you probably think of a beachside restaurant with an ocean view, right? While it’s always wonderful to dine next to the beach, the view from this hidden gem in Palm Coast is pretty unique.
High Jackers Restaurant sits right next to the Flagler County Airport, so guests can get an up-close view of planes taxing around the runway, taking off and landing.
Inside, you'll find license plates and memorabilia lining the walls and models of airplanes from different eras hanging from the ceiling.
The restaurant is owned by the folks who started High Tide at Snack Jack in Flagler beach, so they've brought some of that fun beachy flare to High Jackers, too. Even though there isn't an ocean view, you can still sit outside with your toes in the sand.
There's even a playground to keep the kids happy while you relax and enjoy watching the planes. They've really thought of everything!
As for food, you can expect a menu of American comfort food and bar food staples, with lots of sandwiches, wraps, wings, and burgers.
Locals who are in the know visit on Wednesday or Thursday for the shrimp special, a whole pound of peel-your-own spicy steamed shrimp for just $10.
So next time you're looking for a unique restaurant with a view (but you want to escape the tourists that frequent your favorite beachside spot), mix it up a bit and give High Jackers a try.
High Jackers is located at 202 Airport Road in Palm Coast. They are open from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Monday through Thursday and on Saturday, from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Fridays, and 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Sunday.
