Loved the appetizers - smoked beef tartare and shaved vegetable salad. The entrees were disappointing - catch of the day (swordfish) was a nice piece of fish but arrived cold with very runny succotash. The strip steak was extremely chewy and more rare than medium. Drinks were great.

The food and drinks here were absolutely amazing... the only negative comment I have were the chairs... the most uncomfortable ever..I probably would have stayed longer and had more of their delicious drinks but I couldn't wait to get out of that chair..now, the chairs looked cool but a chair should not only look cool but be appropriate for sitting....

Having been a fan of sister restaurant Pirlieu for years (now temporarily closed), we were happy to find a reservation at Prohibition. We were even happier to find some of the best food we'd ever experienced in Charleston! Service overall was terrific as well. Consider this restaurant highly recommended.

We had dinner in the porch area, which we enjoyed. If you like margaritas, try theirs- it's a little spicy and yummy! We had the scallops and the pasta dish and they were tasty. The servers are attentive but not pushy- Will definitely be back.

Everything was excellent except our table was so close to the band during brunch so it was difficult to have conversation.
We just got unlucky with seating i would definitely go back
service was amazing as was the food.

Nice restaurant! Probably because of the long narrow floor plan, the noise was a bit loud. The food was great but the choices are too few. I would be hesitant to bring more people there because I’d worry that at least one person wouldn’t find anything they liked.

We had early reservations and arrived a tad earlier and were seated quickly. Sat on the patio, which was much quieter and very pleasant that evening. Server, Zee, was attentive and very helpful. Enough attention but not hovering. Fantastic food, scallops & pork belly. Incredible sauce. Appetizer of ricotta and charred broccoli and sweet honey on toasted 1/2 loaf of bread. All great.

This place has great drinks but the food is subpar and super expensive for what it is. Would definitely come back for drinks but not to eat. Donuts were great but otherwise everything was super salty

Extensive drink menu but that didn’t make up for the really bad, yet expensive, food. Ordered smoked tartare and whipped ricotta and broccoli toast as appetizers. The toast was cold and the broccoli was way way over cooked. Burger came out and not sure how the cheese melted it was that cold. Swordfish was billed as fresh caught - not sure when but it was not fresh. Succotash billed as having lump meat crab there were 2 pieces. And again at best the dish was luke warm. Very disappointed
