Our volleyball team comes here many Tuesday nights during our season. We play at the Schaumburg park district league right next door so it's obviously super convenient to have a place to go out afterwards that's a 30 second drive. The prices here are very reasonable, the portion sizes are so generous! Their daily deals are awesome, and the service... More

Went here because it was at airport, to watch plans. No plans moving today, black friday. Lots of plans inside though. Food was good, and plentiful. Had porkchops, and pot pie, both really good, though chips a little over done. Service was right on, and pace also.

We have been to Pilot Pete's many times before and the food is usually very good. But this time tried a new dish and was disappointed. Ordered the pot roast served in a bread bowl. While the pot roast tasted good, except for some kind of seasoning which couldn't be identified, serving it in a bread bowl, is a mistake... More

On Friday, October 28, on a recommendation of a family relative (Tom), we decided to have dinner at Pilot Pete's. What a great recommendation. The moment you go through the set of doors, you see all types of aviation memorable. We arrived around 7:30 PM and had no wait. If we did have to wait, you could be seated in... More

They have an extensive menu and everything sounded great. We have two teenagers and ordered the buffalo chicken dip and wings for an appetizer. The dip was yummy, wings weren't crunchy enough and were too sweet for our taste. I ordered a stroganoff, it was tasty, but I like my recipe better. The pot roast in it was amazing though... More

Busy, busy place with lots of families choosing this restaurant at the Schaumburg Airport (small private planes only). Nothing special about the food, but nothing to complain about either. Expect a long wait if you go during family dinner time on a Friday or Saturday night. Free parking!

I would eat there every day if I could. The service was great & watching the planes take off & landing was very entertaining

This restaurant made me realize how much I need to appreciate TripAdvisor... thanks to the reviews already written, my wife and I decided to try Pilot Pete's while staying in Schaumburg this last weekend. We went at 2pm on a Saturday afternoon (2-4pm is my favorite time to go to restaurants since they're a bit slower). Menu items ordered were:... More

Based on the reviews of other travelers, my wife and I took our granddaughters here for dinner. We got there at 430 and were lucky to get seated right away. Not a window seat but across the isle. We had a good view of the airstrip and the kids got to see planes coming and going. We ordered the loaded... More
