    Default Highjackers

    Highjackers is located at the Flagler Executive Airport. The view, if any, is limited to student pilots bouncing around the runways.

    The menu is a typical sports bar fare of burgers, salads, and entrees with flying categories like Taxi Out, Crop Duster, Coach, First Class and Main Flight.

    Thursday night was busy probably due to the $10/lb spicy shrimp and domestic bottled beer specials.

    The server arrived with menus quickly enough and took our drink orders, but the beers didn't arrive for 10 minutes. Food was ordered after the drinks arrived not in the beginning.

    The beer, however, was served at a balmy 56.7 degrees, although it was placed in a bucket of ice. Another 10 minute wait for the beers to become cold enough. My partner thought the beers were "skunky tasting". I am always appalled when a bar or restaurant serves warm domestic bottled beer. This alone will cause me never to return.

    I picked the Spicy Shrimp ($10/lb special), fries & corn fritters ($3), while my partner chose the loaded nachos ($9).

    The shrimp were served hot with pre-packaged melted butter and cocktail sauce. The shrimp were previously frozen and about a quarter of them had soft, thin shells, meaning they sat defrosting for too long. Mediocre at best. The pre-packaged cocktail sauce is the deal breaker here. Any chef worth their salt can make a decent cocktail sauce.

    The fries were hot and crispy but did not reach the top of the two-inch high basket, nor did they spread out to the edges. I couldn't tell if the fritters were corn or a bad attempt at hush puppies. Luckily only 2 fritters were included. My suggestion is to drop the ill-made fritters and add more fries.

    The loaded nachos were the star of the meal. Loaded up with cheese, jalapenos, black beans, and salsa throughout the chips, not just dumped across the top. The chips were a mix of blue, red, and yellow and quite crispy. My partner cleaned his plate.

    The wait for drinks and obvious disregard for beer temperature is unforgivable. The cornerstone of any establishment that serves alcohol is proper service. If you can't serve alcohol correctly other items will suffer and, sadly, they did.

    2/5 stars

    That doesn't sound like a great meal...I doubt you will darken their doorway again.

    If you go anywhere and plan to eat for under 20 bucks....well.... You sorta expect to get what you pay for. It's beach food at the airport instead of the beach. Imo it just is what it is. You want good food, Corky's in Palatka or head to ST. Aug.

    The only folks using it anymore seem to be the pilots that come and go. I was in there once and the place was empty.

    The place must have something, because it seems busy all the times i go in. it is not much more than fast food at the airport.

    I've had many decent meals for under $20 in this area. I do not believe for one second that price has anything to do with it. That being said, I've also had terrible expensive ($50+) meals as well.

    But warm beer? No excuse. Off with their testicles!

    I agree.... No excuse! To me, the drink is 80% of my decision! And I don't care if it's coffee, beer , wine, or what have you>> It better be good and it better be on time!
