New owners take wing at airport eatery: Tammy and Guy Anderson take over Wings Cafe at Brainerd Lakes Regional (KBRD), Minnesota

Tammy and Guy Anderson wanted a small restaurant where customers could be known by name. They found one made to order in the Wings Airport Cafe.

“It’s the perfect size for us,” Tammy Anderson said. “We wanted something cozy where you could know the people by name like a Cheers restaurant.”

The Andersons bought the 48-seat restaurant, located at Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport, earlier this month.

“It’s got an awesome view,” Guy Anderson said.

Just past the checkered table cloths are large windows with a view of the airport. Customers, including the Andersons’ grandchildren, enjoy watching the planes come and go. The planes also bring in customers who taxi in just to get a bite before heading back up into the deep blue sky.

Cooking isn’t new to the family. Guy Anderson was a cook at Breezy Point Resort and the former Westside Cafe. He’s splitting his other day job at Silent Power with cooking duties at the restaurant. Tammy handles cooking duties and waits tables. The two start their day with the kitchen prep work about 5:30 a.m. The restaurant opens at 7 a.m. and serves customers until 3 p.m. during the week with daily breakfast and lunch specials. Saturday and Sunday, Wings closes at 2 p.m. and on Sunday opens at 8 a.m.
