What a shame.My Family enjoyed this place for a few Thanksgivings along with many others.Great atmosphere and buffet plus it was fun to see airplanes land or take off from the window.
It's really sad.

How silly, and financially irresponsible can the Town of Babylon, be on not coming to some kind of agreement on lowering the TAXES of $159,000 for the 56th Fighter Group Restaurant.
Isnt better to receive a Lower Tax payment then NONE ?
Townships give new business discounts, why not help keep a 30 year Business in place that supports the Area, with History, Employment, and incoming Taxes ?.
How GREEDY must we & TOWN Boards, Administration get / be ?

I can't believe 56th is gone. I met great people there and even had my baby shower in the restaurant. During my pregnancy I would stop by for chocolate cake and milk with girlfriends. Will be missed.
