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

Years ago Toronto banned Happy Hour because patrons would drink as much cheap beer as they could after work, get hammered, and then climb behind the wheel. Somehow Happy Hour has made its way back and the customers at Prohibition seem very, very Happy about it.

I had to wait for my Toyota to be repaired across the street and came over for dinner and was very pleasantly surprised by the high quality of an early dinner (the earlier you come, the better deal you get on a drink with dinner). I had a buffalo burger with a nice side salad --nice to see buffalo, an... More

My wife and I stopped in at Prohibition for dinner the other night and we were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere (and great beer selection) is definitely that of a casual pub. Expect a lively dinner, not a quiet romantic one! A lot of the menu resembles a pub as well but when you look a little deeper you see lobster... More

We went there on a Monday evening and it was very lively - a bit on the loud side but energetic!! Excellent service from hostess and wait staff. Unique menu and great food. A very welcoming decor and vibe - we'll go back.
