In the heart of Dunedin’s ‘The Octagon’ Start or finish the week this summer at Prohibition Smokehouse.
We expected and were told our event was being held at Prohibition Smokehouse, and marketed the event as such. On arrival, we were told our event was being held downstairs at The Catacombs, which is more like a student club. This was an event of over 30 lawyers from the region and it wasn't befitting of what we were after, or what we expected. We really needed two staff down there during the full two hour booking period to assist with service. Cocktails were a nice touch, thank you. However wines were expensive. Morgan was a good barman and his service was appreciated.
Arrived, seated and the menu explained very quickly by staff. Ordered food and drinks and was served our main course and drinks promptly. Then it went slightly down hill sat for ages waiting for someone to clear the table, there didn't seem to be many staff on. Finally ordered more drinks and puddings again served promptly. Cant fault the food but maybe extra staff would make it a more pleasant experience
Excellent food - particularly loved the brisket and salads. Friendly yet professional service in an interesting environment. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
Excellent menu, all shared dishes were tasty and cooked to perfection. Waiter really knew his stuff and was great to deal with. Overall atmosphere is great and all staff are very friendly and were accommodating to our needs.
Really enjoyed our meal. Delicious food, great service. Thank you to all your staff!!
Excellent meal out with friends. Food was so tasty!
Incredible service from outgoing and friendly staff
Great evening, Great food and the guy serving our table was great. Thanks
We had such an amazing time dining here! The food was absolutely amazing and the service was wonderful. We have already recommend Prohibition Smokehouse to our friends and we will absolutely be back.
Fantastic food and service. Definitely recommend :-)
Eating here tonight was the ideal way to celebrate a family birthday. The food was delicious (I think you should bottle your sauce used on the chicken wings - my God it was delicious and perfectly balanced), the service superbly delivered by your waitress and we love the atmosphere. We will be back for more deliciousness and great experiences.
Although the crab cakes themselves were a tasty entree, I wish that the jalapeño dressing had been served on the side. It was too spicy for my palate & spoiled the dish. The desserts at $15 each were overpriced, as was the rose spritzer pre dinner drink at $16.
Working Day lunch with friends. Very enjoyable as always.
Great atmosphere and management so helpful and friendly. Made it a really great night.
Awesome staff, awesome food, awesome place!! I had a last minute change to the booking - changed from 2 people to 11 in total and I don't think they even batted an eyelid about it. The food was amazing - can't speak high enough about it! Service was great, staff are very easy to speak to and did everything they could to make sure the evening was a success. Well done PS - you did Dunedin proud, cheers!!!
Seemed to be lacking staff numbers or very poor at serving. Staff seemed more interested in serving a large group than any other diners. Ended up having to go to Countdown for desert and a wine............
One of our party, having returned from a reasonably long period working outside of London, rated the Brisket as the best she had eaten since her similar meal at a Gordon Ramsey restaurant in the heart of London itself.. Right across the range of food that we had last night, the quality, flavour and value was excellent. Thank you for a great dining experience.
Everyone in the group raved about how delicious the food was.. Our waiters were on point and the night was a huge success...
Great friendly service, we will be back. Thank you.
Everything was perfect the food wine and service. We had a great time and will be back!
Great food very flavourful efficient friendly service thanks
Delicious food, good service - have been a few times and will continue to visit every time I’m in Dunedin! Must visit!!!
Great service and some of the food was really tastey but too much garlic in some of the food for my taste - or perhaps it was the way it was cooked since we travel a lot in Asia on business where they use a lot of garlic but rarely is it so obvious in a meal.
Very friendly staff. Lovely food. Would recommend
