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

Staff were very attentive. Brought us drinks ($5 for all beers!) and as we were hungry brought the starters immediately while we decided on mains. Portions are large and food was delicious. Recommend the beer can chicken. Only small issue I had was that the coffee was served in what I could only describe as a bowl - too big... More

Staff are amazing. Service is good although food does take time to arrive. There is always a decent house red. Went because we didn't want to stay in but we did not want to go all out. The atmosphere fits any occasion don't forget to get an order of those east coast oysters.

The smoked ribs are amazing. The beer can chicken and pulled pork are also very good. Great beer selection and family friendly. Fun, comfortable atmosphere.

My family decided to get together on Victoria Day and chose Prohibition as a good midway point. My husband and I arrived first and realized there would be 10 of us, and we didn't have a reservation. Uh Oh!! We could see the restaurant was VERY busy because a lot of restaurants were closed due to the holiday - but... More

The restaurant we really wanted to go to was going to be a 45 minute wait, so we walked a few doors over to Prohibition. Three out of the four of us ordered Beef Ribs and my husband ordered the Beer Can Chicken. About twenty minutes later, the waiter came back telling us that there was a miscommunication in the...

My friends and I go to Prohibition quite often for their weekend brunch. Always a good time and good food. Servers have always been excellent and attentive.

With a branding as cool as 'Prohibition Gastropub and Oyster Bar' I was expecting more. More personality, more atmosphere. It is more like a local pub/sports bar without all the sport. I can't quite describe it, but it is just lacking something. The service was good, the food (wings) were good and the beer was cold - so there isn't... More

I came here for a work Christmas gathering. The gave us an area at the back of the restaurant but unfortunately had to split our party of about 14 to 2 separate tables. They had a great selection of reasonably price alcohol (definitely the cheapest shot of yagermeister in town), and even had my favourite Delirium Tremens on tap. Nice... More
