The 356th Fighter Group is the area's only authentic WWII restaurant dedicated to the heroes of the war. The 356th Fighter Group was an actual airborne team that saw combat in the European Theater. Three squadrons of planes (the 359th,360th, & 361st) made up the 356th Fighter Group. These pilots flew the P-47 Thunderbolt and then the famed P-51 Mustang while escorting the B-17 Bombers across the English Channel to safety. This group was stationed at the Martelsham Heath Airfield in Suffolk, England. The 356th Fighter Group completed a total of 413 combat missions. It is to these brave and courageous men that we dedicate our restaurant.
This group was from Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. Many of the pilots were ace fighters. The 356th Fighter Group was credited with helping to turn the war in favor of the Allied Forces because of the use of the new P-51b Mustang plane that could travel great distances. This restaurant is dedicated to all Military past and present, without our Fine Military our country would not enjoy the Freedoms' we enjoy to this day. Our walls are lined with pictures of the Heroes of the 356th Fighter Group and some of our local heroes. So come back in time to a simpler era where patriots of the 356th ruled the air.
