What an absolutely amazing child free night out. Started with 2 scrummy cocktails. Big ups to the bartender. The food was delicious. Both the Pork Belly and Brisket just fell apart and was moist and juicy. I had the Sour Cherry cheesecake and it was too good to share. It was a pleasure to spend our 5year anniversary with such nice and friendly staff. Thank you! We will be back :) :)

Service was excellent and food great. Top tip don't order a main each as they are huge and we had to get a doggie bag as it was too great to waste.

Food and Service were great as always, a bit unfortunate that there was no ice cream for dessert thanks to a supplier issue. All round thumbs up.

Prohibition Smokehouse is one of our favourite places to dine! This restaurant offers a shared dining experience where the food is passed down the center of the table for everyone in your entourage to help themselves. This allows for greater choice and variety, as everyone has the option of trying a portion of everything. The venue is warm, cosy and well-presented with a rustic theme. The staff are friendly and helpful and usually provide very prompt service to your table. We'll certainly be returning to this restaurant.

Second time dining. Great experience, great service staff to boot.
Had the Buttermilk fried chicken, chowder, mac& cheese, flank steak and the lemon posset.
Fried chicken was a bit disappointing. Chowder was great, mac & cheese was also very good. Flank was delicious and the posset was perfect to cut through all of the previous dishes!
Overall both experiences have been on point. Favourite dish is by far and away the beef brisket. Melts in your mouth.....mmmm.

Great food. Got a few different menu items to share. Ribs, chicken wings, mac & cheese, chips, chicken, bread with butter and chilli salt and pork belly. First time having pork belly. Not sure it is supposed to be just skin and straight fat though? Other than that everything else was great and would go back just for the Mac & cheese and bread with butter and chilli salt alone.

Food and service were great, First Table gave us the chance to try more of the main dishes than we normally would. Family style is the best way to eat at Prohibition. Food seemed even better quality than it's usual great standard, maybe the early bird catches the best food.

Very nice meal. Something a little different.

I do feel that the waiter was over-estimating the size of the meals when describing them though.

I'd definetly recommend trying several different dishes, order one per person and share.

First time dining at this restaurant with being from out of town and would definitely go back. Not a huge menu but the food was beautiful and the presentation was lovely. There were four of us and we shared four entrees, then two mains and two vege dishes and we couldn't eat it all. Really friendly staff and service was great.

This was our first time. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was tasty and the quantity was adequate. The young man who served us was bright, friendly and very helpful. I would be happy to recommend this restaurant to anybody. We were told they are going to shift to Octagon, we will definitely visit them again.

As expected, the food was tasty and melt-in-your-mouth tender. We ordered the chicken and steak. All the food (I mean ALL including the garnish) was well presented and delicious. We also had the triple-cooked chips and citrus slaw. We had half an eye on the macaroni cheese too as a side dish but the waiter diplomatically suggested that we might like to leave some space for dessert. So glad for the suggestion as it would have been the tipping point. We'll leave the mac n cheese 'til next time. The service and friendliness was top notch. A great night out.

Fantastic first time at Prohibition. We had the pork belly, brisket as mains and the pecan pie for dessert. The brisket was definitely the star for us. Tender and succulent with great smokey flavours. Service was on point and our waiter was very approachable and recommended great dishes. We will definitely be returning to Prohibition to try their small plates and their lemon posset! :-)

Had a wonderful time at Prohibition Smokehouse on a weekday evening. Service and ambience were excellent and attention was paid to detail. We ordered the smoked salmon, bone marrow and fried chicken wings for starters. For mains we had beef short ribs, pork belly, beef brisket and flank steak along with the fries and broccoli sides. Food was good, especially the beef short rib, and flank steak, which were excellent. We were pleasantly surprised at how tasty the broccoli was, and would recommend it to go with your meaty meal. We had pecan pie and lemon mousse which were excellent. All in all, a great evening out and a definite recommendation.

An amazing experience from start to finish! The service was impeccable. The young waiter from Sweden a delight. The food is amazing. We shared the chicken wings and sliders for starters then the pork belly (was the best we've ever had!!) and mashed potatoes. We had the chocolate pot for dessert (a 10 out of 10!!). The portions are huge and every bite a scrumptious treat. We will be back soon for more treats. Andrea

Great dining experience last night at Prohibition Steakhouse.
Great service from the waiter Morgan who was very informative and was very helpful sorting out food queries/issues with the kitchen for my pregnant wife.
Food was delicious and we left with leftovers as everything looked so good that we over ordered.

Me and my partner had a lovely time! The pork belly we ordered was lovely and tender, the flavour of citrus really added a surprising warmth/ "zing" (as a middle aged woman would put it) to the dish as well. Really loved the ambience, warmth and coziness of the place - Most memorable would be the guy serving us, good service always makes all the difference, he answered all of our annoying questions and gave us a wee rundown on the history of the building, told us how the building functions now, and spoke of the owner highly. Was happy to learn he owns another haunt in town we were considering dining at a while ago - Vault 21, which of course is now on our list of places to visit. Cheers!

The food was fantastic - perfectly cooked and very tasty. We had the sticky bbq ribs, brisket sliders and bread for entree and they were all divine. For mains we had the crispy pork belly, char grilled sweet corn cakes, with sides of mac n cheese and fries. The pork belly was the best I've had in a long time, and came with a very fresh citrus slaw. The meals are all large and great for sharing. The staff were attentive and friendly. Would definitely recommend dinner here!

Wow - the food here is soooo good. We started with the salmon and prawn tortilla dish - wanted more! For the main we shared the beef short rib - just melted in our mouths - the best creamiest mashed potatoes and the iceberg salad. To finish off with we shared the pecan pie and chocolate pot - yum! Great service too! This is my favourite restaurant in Dunedin.
