Our professional and passionate team are constantly striving to push the boundaries of excellence with cocktails like the 547 Manhattan and our signature Bacon Maple Old Fashioned to name but a few.

Shrimp and grits were phenomenal.
Sat at the bar as I was eating solo. Would have appreciated a little conversation from the barman, but would absolutely return.

Small and a bit noisy inside but the patio was very nice. Chris the manager introduced himself and helped take great care of our group. Food pricing was a bit high for what we received but tasted very good and enjoyable. No cocktails this trip as we were dining with kids but we want to come back and try out a few at the bar.

Even though we came for drinks, we ended up ordering some snacks and starters and it was all very delicious.
The service was good as well.
I would definitely recommend it here.

I had been here for drinks before, but never to eat. I am SO happy we decided to finally eat here! The food was absolutely amazing (particularly the ribs appetizer - fall-off-the-bone delicious!) and the service was impeccable. This is a great place for happy hour or to have a wonderful meal!

Prohibition is a mandatory stop on every visit I make to Charleston. I love the atmosphere, the delicious food and friendly service. Looking forward to the day they get their French toast back, as it’s the best I’ve ever had. The food is always excellent and unique.

I would recommend this for drinks and apps. It would have been great if they indicated on OpenTable that the menu was limited due to Covid. The menu on OT has a lot more options that I was expecting, but if there had been a notice it would have been no big deal.

Also it was very hot in the back bar area. Additional fans would be helpful this time of year.

REALLY great service from the bartender team in the back. Ariana was awesome.

Food was meh - ordered the smoked steak tartare and, while presented beautifully, it had some powerful flavors including pickled onions that kind of overpowered the dish. Next we had the burrata and pistachio toast with came with roasted broccoli on it ... I don’t recall seeing that listed on the menu and my dining partner is not a broccoli fan. While the pistachio pesto and Burrata were very tasty, the toast it was on was so soggy we couldn’t even pick it up. It was as if it was made ahead and kind of sitting around waiting for someone to order it.

We also split the burger which was very good.

Overall, I was disappointed bc it seemed there were problems with execution and it wasn’t cheap. If I’m paying top dollar for drinks and food, I expect balanced flavors and proper execution. Especially in a city full of excellent restaurants

Fabulous experience. Made the reservation at Prohibition at the the last minute after another reservation at another restaurant made on OT wasn’t honored by the restaurant. Prohibition staff welcomed us, took our temp and immediately seated us on the patio. So glad the first restaurant fell through. Will definitely visit Prohibition again.

We were a group of 7. We sat on the patio, which was much less noisy on a busy Saturday night. The menu is creative and all our dishes were wonderful! The Brussels sprouts appetizer was fabulous, as were the scallops! Our server was professional and friendly, and never missed a beat! The cocktail menu is great, and the cocktails were some of the best we had during our visit to Charleston! Prohibition is one of new favorites!
