A Great Place to Take Children and Aviation Enthusiasts

Proud Bird is a destination restaurant. Try to get a table by the window so that you can watch the planes coming in for landings at LAX. The staff and menu are children friendly, but the adult fare is fabulous. Be sure and take time to go outside and inspect the collection of small planes.

I recently had dinner at the Proud Bird before attending a concert at the Forum. Diners are met with airplanes on display in the parking area. The interior layout affords every table views of incoming planes. For aviation fans, request a table at the window - they include headphones that allow you to hear the control tower at LAX. While...

Went to this restaurant while on business travel. I got blackened Mahi-Mahi, which was very good. The walls are covered with lots of aviation history memorabilia, and the yard has historic aircraft. You could spend hours looking at all of this, which my group would have liked to do, except the service was quite slow, and one of us needed... More

We went to this restaurant with four children and five adults for father's day. There are vintage planes from WWII and WWI on display and memorials to the Tuskegee airman among others. There is fenced outdoor space for kids to run around with some supervision. The buffet was extensive and included Mexican food, omelettes, meats , prime rib, salads, a... More

I try to get to Proud Bird every time I'm in LA. I've never been disappointed with the food, the steaks have always been great. As a history / aviation buff, the setting is fabulous. Give it a try for someting out of the ordinary.

This was the 2nd time we went here. The first time was only to take away food. On both occasions though, it was prior to departing LAX for London. The first time we went we were really impressed by this quirky place. The building and its interior are fantastic. Obviously, the aircraft make this an interesting place too. The take... More

As a veteran, the Proud Bird displayed the pride of a nation. Great food and the weekend brunch is outstanding!

The restaurant is at the end of one of the runways at LAX. For plane enthusiasts it is a great place to eat. For food enthusiasts, not so much. The Caesar salad was pretty good, but the New York strip steak was not. A marbled steak is fine, but this thing was riddled with chunks of fat. It must have... More

If you enjoy watching commercial airliners land this is a good choice and you are interested in good food this is worth the stop. The service is attentive and the food appetizing. The menu has a good selection and the wait time is acceptable. The décor is that of a mid-west diner club and pleasant. The wall hangings are a... More

The Proud Bird is a long standing restaurant with great view of LAX. It has great aircraft displays as well as many aviation pictures. Welcoming staff and great service. I enjoyed an extended conversation with my waiter, I decided on a lighter meal. I ordered the mixed green salad with salmon. The meal and wine were excellent and price was... More
