“Daytime Dining Recommended”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Paper tablecloths & crayons "help" while waiting for your meal. The restaurant sits alongside the airport so you might catch sight of a single engine aircraft taking off or landing. They have a bar with area to sit, snack & drink. Other side is their dining room. We chose the dining room. Props is a fairly new restaurant though they occupy the same space as an ethnic restaurant which had the same model airplanes hanging from the ceiling. We arrived close to 12:45 for lunch. There were 6 ladies finishing their lunch and another 2 tables with couples just receiving and starting their meals. The waitress greeted us, asked us to choose wherever we'd like to sit. We waited about 5 minutes for our menus. Prices for lunch were a little on the high side but when we looked at the dinner prices they were over 60% more. The waitress came back for our orders and we asked for some water rather than a drink. 35 minutes later our hamburgers and fries arrived. It was drafty, so be sure to bring a sweater or jacket. During this time another couple came in from a fly-in, but the other customers all had departed. They were not that busy and maybe their service was the reason they weren't. The burgers and fries were acceptable but nothing special. (Yes, it's possible they had an employee who had called in sick and were slow in the kitchen - but they were not busy - the service should have been better) We won't go back.
