Thoroughly enjoyed the menu at this original venue. Staff were funky yet friendly and professional. Food was fresh, made to order, reasonably priced. Will make a point yo return again so. Lovely to see an independent venue catering yo all tastes and diets with no cynicism or arrogance. Thank you!

If you crave great wings I suggest this place for the smoke house, chicken lollipops! At 3 bucks per pop it may sound a tad bit expensive but each one is worth the 300 pennies!

We have been here 3 times before we go to concerts at the Opera house. Our last visit was Dec 9th before the Gwar show. The server was amazing (wish i had of gotten his name!) and the food was sooooooooooo good! They always treat us great and never judge us. We will be back everytime we go to a... More

My second visit to Prohibition was as good or better than the first. The poutines are fantastic, and the place lots of interesting items on the menu. Good attentive service.

Went for a few drinks with a friend and sat at the bar. Friendly staff provide good service, and the place has a nice neighbourhood bar feel. Which technically it is, so well played Prohibition. A selection of great quality sensible Ontario microbrews (no #drainpour here) as well as very well made cocktails will keep your liver happy, and a... More

I love going to this resto-bar any chance I get! I like to go on Fridays for a late dinner (the food is delicious) and then stay for some drinks and dancing (Friday nights they have a great DJ that plays amazing throwback R&B and hip-hop!). And the best part is that from 10-midnight they serve upper-shelf (i.e. the good... More

On a recommendation I visited this place with some work colleagues and loved it. I had the beef ribs which were delicious while others had burgers and standard pub fare. Great assortment of beers to please all! Screens everywhere to watch your fav game. This place had a great vibe!! Very friendly service too, always smiling!

Food was delicious. Service was even better. Essentially it's a fancy pub. They fry their fries and potatoes in duck fat which makes them so much more delish (and healthy).

Queens Street East is a really cool spot to go out for dinner and drinks - there are a lot of choices in the area. You can't go wrong with Prohibition. Staff is friendly and attentive. I had the fish and chips - awesome - really light (corn flake encrusted) and does not leave that heavy feeling in your stomach... More

White truffle oil and panko crust. So yummy. Never been disappointed with a meal here. The poutine is to die for and Lobsterfest this past week was pretty impressive. The bisque was flavourful and light for summer. If you want a nicer pub atmosphere with really great, clever food options, this is definitely a go to place. They also have... More
