Navy Proof Food & Spirits re-awakens the jovial ritual of the sailors of our past, swapping maritime stories over the rationed spirits they held so dear. “Navy Proof” was a term coined by sailors for the daily rum rations given to them by the British Royal Navy in the 1700s. The historic tale says that the sailors would “prove” the strength of their rum rations by pouring it on gunpowder & igniting it to ensure it had not been watered down.

Experience new-American fare and craft cocktails with bold flavors. Each dish emphasizes technique and texture to showcase the versatility of seasonal ingredients and locally-sourced seafood and meat.

The food was good. But that is all. We were sat at 9:15am for our reservation.
We waited over 10 minutes for our server. He came to the table a total of 4 times. We completed our meal at 11am... almost 2 hours for a "quick breakfast" is ridiculous!

We ordered Bloody Mary's and a fruit plate which each took about 30 minutes to come out. The Bloody Mary's tasted like Pepperoncini Juice and Tabasco. They were awful!

Food took a while to come out too, but was good, so okay. But you better believe as soon as we were done the (manager?) was there with the bill dropped before the plates were even done being cleared. That was the ONLY fast part of the service.

Apparently our server had gone on break and we sat there for another 20 minutes waiting for someone to come to pay the bill. After waiting, I got up and walked to the bar to ask if we needed to go to the front to pay. The bartender took the credit cards, then came back to the table to ask how we wanted to pay. Then another person came up and asked if we were ready to pay I told her I'd already given the credit card to the bartender. It seemed that she didn't understand and asked again about our payment... ugh!

Once the credit cards were brought back to the table, she hovered, and waited for the credit cards to be signed. At that point my friend was in the restroom so her card was not signed yet. She asked if it was ready, I said no. Before leaving the table she asked again if it was ready, I said no... again.

While hovering, waiting for my friend to return from the restroom, she asked how our experience was. I told her about the issues that we had. Her response was "Bad experiences are a part of life." Nothing else ...just wow.

You sit in the lobby of the hotel? Server didn’t seem to know the menu, was not attentive, food took forever(even after server said 4 more minutes), food was cold and just not good. It is not worth the $, or time.

Hotel lobby bar/restaurant with not much separation from the lobby. Although the setup leaves you wanting a more private and intimate dining experience, the great food, decor and service makes you quickly forget where you are.
