This small restaurant and lounge definetly makes for a excellent Atlanta Dating Idea. Outside of excellent food, the atmosphere can’t be beat. The outdoor deck and enclosed patio dining area overlooks the runway of Peachtree Dekalb Airport which is a small private airport in the Chamblee Ga. area, but has some fairly large planes fly in and out which adds to the experience here.
There are three choices of dining areas, one that is completely indoors at the lounge / bar area, another glass enclosed temperature controlled patio with excellent views of the Peachtree Dekalb Airport runway, and the third is a outdoor deck with the best view of the runway possible.
The atmosphere is family friendly, fairly quiet, and perfect for a romantic and unique date. All the wait staff is very friendly, and the restaurant does offer live music on occassion.
Downwind Restaurant offers a variety of budget friendly food choices, which range from burgers and fries to entres such as salmon, and country fried steak, and a variety of sandwiches. The food is excellent, and much to my surprise, they even had a great tasting veggie burger on the menu. Also you must try any of their Greek dishes. This place has been here for around 20 years, and trust me, the excellence will most likely keep them here for another 20 years.
After a great meal, you and your date can enjoy the evening under the stars at the Doc Manget Memorial Aviation Park which sets adjacent to the Downwind restaurant.
