    We were in town for a sisters reunion. This was our last night. Hands down our best experience as we found 99.9% of the food in Charleston wonderful prohibition was a differentiator! Paige our server was amazing made awesome recommendations and joined some of our banter. The staff from host to kitchen were interactive. The ambiance is amazing just wish it was warmer to have a cocktail outside it was beautiful ha. We had the pasta and mussels. Both were so good The only downside was music started at 10pm on a Monday. We were too tired to stay out would be great if it was a 9 pm start for us 40 plussers 🤣

    Prohibition is one of our favorites! The food is always exceptional, drinks are delicious and service is outstanding. We enjoy letting the bartenders come up with original drinks as well. We have come to get the Brussels as a dessert - they are so good!

    Service and food were very good. Disappointed with the outdated menu provided on "OpenTable". In the future I will check the actual website of the restaurant for the menu. I'm not sure if it's the responsibility of Prohibition or OpenTable for the update, but I did mention it to our server.

    This was a special Christmas day out for family. We decided to gather her before the Christmas concert. Prohibition was a perfect choice for our gathering and the experience was wonderful. We chose to get several appetizers and share like Tappas. This was a great choice and all our dishes were excellent. I can strongly recommend this to anyone who enjoys sharing a meal and having time to talk with loved ones.

    Limited menu and the options that are currently on the menu, not everyone will like. It would be nice for the restaurant to ADD a few more options and entree's. The atmosphere is more bar than restaurant and this should be considered before going to this establishment. Overall, it was good but we won't be back.

    I had the chicken wings and the oysters. Oysters were good, the chicken wings were not. Pretty hard to eat as the bones were almost all broken, meat wasn’t cooked well and they were pretty dry. Just wasn’t impressed.
