Stopped in on a Saturday night without reservations. They squeezed us in. The food was really good. The bartender knows his stuff, great drinks. The grits were my favorite. Highly recommended

For breakfast or dinner you will not be disappointed. The really great drinks coming from the bar were equally great, as was the bar area and its vibe.

Small, classy bar with knowledgeable staff and decent mixologists. They have everything most bourbon enthusiasts have read about, or want to try, but cannot get at their home bar. You most certainly will pay to try them, but they have most of the highly sought...More

Lunch at proof on main is experience combined with 21C hotel lobby/museum. It is rated among the best in the country. A stroll down Main Street is a must. The service and the taste of buffalo burger is the best. I love the place!More

The restaurant, Proof and the hotel, 21c are all part of the museum complex. So your walk to the shared restroom is filled with art installations that change out regularly, there's also art in the bathrooms themselves.
