Went here for a late dinner and dancing. Food was great. We are in our 30s and didn't feel too old with this crowd. DJ was great; kept us dancing all night. Fun times!

Another good meal at Prohibition. We had a couple dozen oysters along with Dinner and desert and took advantage of their Hooch hours for discount drinks. Overall a great experience, great service and tasty food.

Prohibition is a place I would take my friends or a first date. It's nice inside with a very nice bar. Has a creative menu that really likes the use of duck fat. Their food is a little on the greasy side but it's tasty...More
