Looked for a place to spend the evening and this was perfect, great drinks, and dancing later in the evening. Nice Irish feel.

Not a bad option if you're looking for a different place to try for Sunday Brunch. Good choices, great bacon, and of course cocktails. They had some live music going and the service was very good at the bar. Can't say their food is going to really impress anyone, but it was okay. Except the bacon, which was awesome. However,...

I walked 6 blocks in the pouring rain, after checking what time they opened 2 different places online, to find out they were closed for an "inspection". They may have won some Best Of awards, but it wasn't for service.

When you are from out of town, you want to find one of those unique local restaurants that does not disappoint - this is the place!

We stopped here after Proof and what a disappointment. No one at the table could drink their cocktail. Two were so sweet it was like drinking a sweet tart. One person ordered what we were told was a vodka drink, and she brought a gin drink and thought that was ok. The appetizers were really good. If you don't like... More

My fiancé and I went to Prohibition for Sunday brunch. There was live music playing, it was relaxing and a nice touch during breakfast. The servers were friendly, we even arrived early for our reservation and they were happy to seat us. We both had a maple bacon infused Bloody Mary that was incredible. We split the shrimp Benedict and... More

Stopped in for a quick dinner before I headed back to my hotel. Great atmosphere! The interior is beautiful. My burger was delicious, and their signature cocktails are super fun. The only downside was the prices were a little higher than I was anticipating. Had I stayed in the area longer I would have come back!

Chris was the best server! Thank you for making our evening such a great one! The corn was amazing, I think I shall now crave that dish! The oysters were great! The cheeseburgers were out of this world. Might be the best burger ever! That is saying something! Nothing like a great burger! Beer was nice and cold too. Everything... More
