Eagle Creek Airpark and Rick's Boat Yard

Fly under Indianapolis IND airspace to Eagle Creek Airport KEYE on the NW side of Indianapolis. Walk across the street to one of the best restaurants within walking distance of any airport in Indiana. Ricks Boat Yard Restaurant is ON THE WATER with wonderful views and a great menu. Often enjoy live music, Seafood fresh lobster, indoor or patio tables, even free boatrides on the lake on some evenings, courtesy of Rick's Boatyard restaurant. 5.00 Landing fee at airport, but worth it. Sometimes you will be greeted with water on the ramp and a golf cart ride to EYE terminal. Runway is 3/21 orientation and has taxiway. This will be a favorite! - Submitted by Russ Kaspar

9/19/2022 - I have flown to Eagle Creek for lunch at Rick's Boat Yard. The food is excellent and it is worth the trip. It is better to fly VFR as Indy Approach will vector you all over Indiana. - Submitted by Mike

8/25/2021 - Now what would really be a good thing is for EYE and Rick's toeH78 designate a beaching dock, or tie up for seaplanes there, with fuel available from the airport. - Submitted by R Merrell

10/1/2019 - First time at KEYE and greeted in style yesterday with water for each of our guests on a hot fall day 88 F. Beautiful airport, walked across the street to Rick's cafe for lunch, 5/5 food! We will definitely come back again and highly recommend this fly in! - Submitted by Tim Hamburg

4/24/2019 - Landing fee is now $8 but is waived if you're going to Rick's. - Submitted by Ryan Stout

11/13/2015 - 6 Nov 2015 Still great as ever. You can't go wrong at Ricks! - Submitted by Pete Speth

1/7/2014 - Call ahead to confirm, but at my last visit in October the landing fee is waived with a valid receipt from the restaurant. - Submitted by Jim

6/26/2012 - Made a great trip down from Chicago for dinner - Submitted by Matt

7/4/2011 - A flight to Rick's is always a hit with the wife, or friends who are new to flying. I'm always looking for similar places that are a little further from home base. - Submitted by Davet
