Proper Grit Whiskey Library & Supper Club, where chophouse favorites inspired by Florida’s seasonal produce and proteins are polished off with a glass of smooth barrel-aged whiskey in a relaxed public house setting. Oversize banquets line the restaurant’s west wall, inviting guests to convene for everything from a celebratory gathering to an intimate dinner for two. At the north end, a grand cocktail bar wraps around the building’s exterior, where outdoor seating and additional bar space allow patrons to enjoy the breeze from the adjacent Intracoastal waterway.

Happy Hour Monday-Friday from 3PM-6PM. 


Executive Chef Dan Pundik presents a menu of creatively prepared and chef-inspired seasonal selections and chophouse offerings, finished off with a fun and memorable presentation, and complemented by an expansive menu of both high-demand and hard-to-find whiskeys and inventive craft cocktails. Proper Grit offers an experience for every diner and drinker, all to be enjoyed in a relaxed-yet-refined speakeasy-esque setting that pays homage to Old Florida’s regal beginnings.
