Each of the 3 times we've chosen 5 O'Clock it has been everything we hoped for. Top quality food well prepared and with excellent service --- plus the ambience of an old-fashioned supper club. Not fancy, but still exquisite if you know what I mean.

Awesome, old school steakhouse. Have worked at a five-star steakhouse for years and was the best steak I have ever had. very quirky way of ordering: order drink at the bar, take order at the bar, then sit down at your table when all of the food is ready.

My hubby took me there last Friday for my birthday & it was Absolutely Yummolicious!!
My birthday meal of Petite Surf & Turf was On Point tonight. My petite 8 oz. filet just melted in my mouth & my 7 oz. lobster tail was also very tasty & cooked to perfection!! Couldn't ask for or find a better meal in the city of Milwaukee & we have tried just about every Steak house there is. My husband was also very Pleased with his 21 oz. Bone in Ribeye & gladly took the owners suggestion of dipping his left over baked potato skin in the Au Jus & thought it was fantastic! Crystal was a great server & hope to have her as our server again when we return. Next time I'll have to save some room for dessert. Thanks again Five O'Clock Steakhouse for a very EnJoYable Birthday dining experience.

Found this on a whim and decided to make a reservation. We were going to be in for a show and thought this sounded like a good place. It was better than good it was fantastic!! Great atmosphere great drinks and the steaks were amazing!! Highly recommended!!

5'Oclock club is our favorite steak restaurant. The atmosphere takes you back to another time. The steaks are the best we have ever had. It is not your cheap steak joint. You have to go!! My husband always gets the 16oz filet. The steaks are so tender you could cut them with a butter knife.

The place was very cool. My wife and I loved how you were escorted directly to the bar, placed your order there and were taken to our table when everything was set up with the bread, salad and relish tray. The food was great, with very large portions and the service was excellent. It was expensive, but worth it.
It's not that anything was really horrib ...
It's not that anything was really horrible, but for the prices we expected a lot more. We were very underwhelmed and disappointed that we had spent so much money only to have a mediocre experience at best. The first bartender who served us (Mike I believe) was very pleasant, but not the second one (Joe I think). Our server, Susie, was very nice, and was apologetic when the kitchen got our order wrong. That was excusable though. Just being disappointed with the food, especially at such high prices, was what really bothered us. Also, they try to fit too many tables into a very small room and we felt like we were right on top on other tables, and felt like we were "in the way" when other servers were trying to get to their tables. We will not be back and will recommend to others not to bother either.

We have been to the Five O'Clock Steakhouse on several occasions and we enjoy the food, ambience and service. The steaks are excellent and the atmosphere is just like it used to be in local restaurants in the 1940's, 50's and 60's. It is like stepping back in time to a wonderful entertaining, dining experience!

Great food! I was nervous about ordering at the bar that the food would come way too quick once you sat down but they still spaced it out nicely. My only dissapointment was that I let them know that we were there for a birthday and they did not do anything for it...would have thought for a $200 dinner that they could have brought out a desert as a surprise for him.
Going to Coerper's (as 5 O'clock Steakho ...
Going to Coerper's (as 5 O'clock Steakhouse is formerly known) back in 1999 was my first exposure to great steak and in my mind it always retained a legendary status and I told everyone who would listen about it.
Now, 17 years later, we are on a cross-country trip from Atlanta to Portland, and we had a chance to visit this restaurant I have told my wife of 8 years so much about. We've had some pretty good steaks in those 8 years because of anniversary dinners at a steakhouse close by where we lived, so my wife had her doubts.
And truth to be told, the steak wasn't as legendary as I remembered. However, this is not to say that it is bad. Far from it. 5 O'clock steakhouse makes a pretty good steak, nothing to turn your nose up for. They still offer the Ladies' and King's Cuts and the Filet Mignon can be done any way, except Well Done, which, also according to their menu, is an abomination!
The interior of the restaurant is a wonderful throwback to the roaring 70s, the wait staff is pleasant, knowledgeable and only visible when you need them. Our waiter Alix was courteous, helpful and on point.
I was surprised to see the owner, Stelio, make the rounds through the restaurant. After finishing our dinner he came over to our table, asked how dinner was and then asked our 7-year old son if he could give a thumbs up to the Crab Mac & Cheese he ate. Travis gave an enthusiastic thumbs up which prompted Stelio to offer him an ice cream, a very nice & wonderful gesture.
So while the steak may not have been as legendary as I hoped, still please visit the 5 O'clock Steakhouse if you find yourself in the Milwaukee area for good food by good people in an interesting place!

Never disappointed when I dine here. Love the old school atmosphere. Cocktails are top notch and the steaks are superb. I had the bone-in ribeye and my friend had the porterhouse - both cooked to perfection. Thanks for another great experience -- I'll definitely be back!

I have always enjoyed everything about dining at your restaurant. Alas my companion loved the steaks but not the neighborhood or atmosphere. I chocked that up to male macho ego. Everyone that I have taken has loved every bit of it without reserve. Guess there has to be one sour apple in the bunch. Still love you. Virginia

We celebrated a wedding anniversary at the five o clock steakhouse on Saturday june 11th. we had a wonderful time and everyone was so very friendly and made us feel like regulars even though it was our first time eating at the restaurant. thank you for the extraordinary dining experience!

My wife and I were very excited to eat at the restaurant. The salad and appetizers were very good but the Steaks were very disappointing. They were swimming in a dark brown juice that looked like Kitchen Bouquet diluted with beef bullion. I ordered the Classic Rib Eye, my favorite, and my wife ordered the steak and crab cakes. Her impression was the same, the steak was swimming in brown fluid and not much flavor. We are true foodies and love great food and we are very sorry that we could not give you a better review.
Loved this place!
It has the feel of one of the old clubs that Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin would play. It would appear that nothing has changed in the dining room for 50+ years. The food was excellent and the staff was friendly and efficient. It is not cheap but worth every penny that you would spend on one of the best steak dinners that you will find anywhere!
Bit of a let down
The experience started off well with a funny hostess and good bar service. The server takes your order in the bar and then your salads are waiting for you at your table.
We told the server that it was our first time there. I assumed that she would go over the menu, maybe make recommendations- instead, she just dropped the menu and came back a couple of minutes later to get our order like we were at IHOP.
Then our appetizers came right out before we had more than a couple of bites of our salad and she sat the appetizer halfway down on the table because there was no more room. I saw her a couple of minutes later and asked her to keep the appetizer warm until our salads were cleared.
We had the crab cakes which were good. I ordered the Bone in Filet rare + and it was excellent. My girlfriend ordered the ribeye rare + and it was over cooked. The asparagus was basic but good while the crab Mac n cheese was weird.
Afterwards, we went up stairs and enjoyed watching Joe Richter perform.
The service was the worst part for me.
