It's true that Prohibition is a nod to the classic 1920's Speakeasy, but our elevated cuisine and progressive cocktail program are anything but old-fashioned.

At Prohibition you can expect the culinary delights of Executive Chef Greg Garrison to leave you completely Jazzed, from savory local seafood to the finest cuts of meat, each dish is prepared with perfection.

Kick back in our relaxing surroundings and sample the Mixology Expertise of our award winning Bar Team, led by Jim Mc Court. 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. Our extensive and imaginative beer, wine and liquor selection insures we can cater to all tastes.

The food and atmosphere are amazing! The cocktail list is loaded with great options. Very lively both inside and on the patio. I highly recommend sitting out on the patio if you have the option.

Food & service was great! My only issue was we reserved a high-top and they kept trying to push us to sit literally right next to a live band. We eventually got moved and had a wonderful experience!

Terrible night. Service was poor. Our waitress paid very little attention to is. The kitchen was delayed due to a large
event. No one explained it until very late in our visit. Food came out cold and was very mediocre. To their credit they wrote off the bill for the food. Won’t be back and do not recommend

Great experience with a tasty brunch and cocktail menu! We sat in the back patio and it was lovely. The inside seemed a bit cold and loud with a live 2-man band.
Service is great; never waited too long for the food/drinks and accommodating waiter.

Reservations were timely! Food and service were amazing. Seating in the back patio was very pleasant, as the live band could be heard, but was not too loud that a conversation could not be held.

Chef Analisa and her team were fantastic. We ordered shrimp and grits and the wings... And they Suprised us with a tasting of the scallops and barrata. Everything was delicious. We arrived right at closing .. but the service and the plating.. and the food was just as good as if thet just opened. Thank you Chef Analisa and the team @ Prohibition Charleston

First wine glass came out super dirty and sticky and I could tell the wine had been opened and sitting for days. Music was so loud couldn’t hold a conversation. Waiter told me she personally open a new bottle of wine for my pour and personally took the glass out of the washer- which was clearly not true. Our table was so close to an area that they drop the dishes at that we got sprayed a few time- gross right? They claim they makes mixologist drinks and my husbands old fashion came out with a hand full of ice chips and missing it’s stable garnishes.
Over all not a great date night.

We had a reservation and most of the front of the restaurant was empty. They sat us at a hightop in the back bar which at that time was housing about 40 people waiting for the patio (private event) and another large party. For the first 25-20 minutes we could not hear ourselves nor our server!!!
After everyone left it was wonderful great food, great service and we could enjoy the company we had chosen to have dinner with.
Would have been five stars

It needs to be clear that the menu is eclectic. In fact it’s a weird mix to have a prohibition themed bar with an overly upscale eclectic food menu.

We had a fantastic time at Prohibition. We got drinks (not food), which were superb and inventive. The wait time was not bad despite being a packed house. Our server was wonderfully attentive and friendly. We came for the live blues with Sufferin' Moses - they were awesome! All in all we had a really fun time. The atmosphere and vibe of the place was really great - highly recommend!

We loved Prohibition! The cocktails were amazing and the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The food was INCREDIBLE! The brussel sprouts were to live for. The chicken was perfectly cooked. The burrata was amazing. We went back another night and sat at the bar and totally enjoyed watching the mixologists show their craft (caramelizing the sugar on the apple with a torch was a highlight).

We would go back here in a heartbeat.

The hostess was absolutely horrible. One of the worst experiences. She was not able to find a table and there were only 20 people in the entire restaurant. Took 10 min to be seated. Food was excellent.
Server was absent minded. Ask for honey. Never brought. Ask for sweet tea. She forgot then I was told it was not ready it was 12:45 on Saturday.
