I figured this place was a restaurant, and if I had been smart enough to type "restaurant" into the business search box I would have found it quite easily.

No kidding. It's a cool place but the food is inconsistent. Great people watching when the open the disco floor and the denizens of the 70's crawl out. I liked all the WWII photos and big band music my self. There used to be a C-47 in the brush to along the south side of the place and the two planes used to be on the concrete pads in front.
Also of note is that the guy, Pat Epps, who owns one of the hangars and Epps Air Service at the airport went up to Greenland where a handfull of P-38s bellied in while being ferried to Europe during WWII. He dug one out from WAY under the ice and is restoring it.

I read about that expedition in Smithsonian's Air and Space magazine a while back. Unfortunately it's not available on their website.

Will the effort to unearth a P-38 from 264 feet of Greenland ice ever pay off?"
That hot water tunneling mole was pretty ingenious.
