Five O'Clock Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews

We were so excited for our anniversary. We made reservations week's in advance. When we got there we couldn't even move their were so many people. Apparently there was a Marquette game. We were patient but then they tried to shove us in a crappy table where by we couldn't move by the entrance to the dining room, then offered us another scrappy table in the corridor of service. When we were finally seated it was so loud we could barely talk. Getting a drink took 20 minutes. I felt bad for our server who was trying so hard to accommodate us. The food was good but we vowed to never go here again on a weekend. The owner is right there making sure everyone is happy. That says a lot. Ambience horrible that night. We couldn't wait to get out of there and have a cocktail attorney home to chill out from that.

My husband and I have been going here for years and have never had anything but a fantastic time, phenomenal food and great service.
Truly a classic steakhouse that has not compromised quality or eccentricity for 'modernization'. So grateful they continue to thrive and make people so happy while doing so.
Don't ever change, 5 O'Clock!!

It was really loud and had to sit close to everybody, but the service was top of the line! A real classy joint! The steaks are the reason we went voted best steak house in Milwaukee, I don't know if they are the best but... But the steaks were unbelievably amazing!!! We had the Porterhouse and the Ribeye

If the tables weren't so close to each other, I eould rate higher. My husband enjoyed his food but I couldn't because I felt that people were almost sitting on top of me. The servers had carts with food on them and had to work their way between the tables. When the hostess seated peopl, the table were so close that those being seated would bumped into me trying to get to their seat. I think of the owner would remove and rearrange some of the tables, they would still make money and the atmosphere would be so much better for their customers. It's a popular plar and the food is genetally great but this time tbe experience was not a good one file me. We did go to the Alley Cat Lounge upstairs after dinner. Enjoyed the band. A great addition to the restaurant.

The steak is great but the dining area is loud, cramped and dark. We had to get out a flashlight to identify all of the different items on our cheese plate, my husband kept getting jostled by the man behind him, and the noise level meant that we had to yell multiple times in order for the waitstaff to understand us when we asked to have particular items wrapped up to go. The food is great, but for the price there are steakhouses in town with better ambiance. This was our second time giving 5 o'clock a chance. We will likely not be back for a third time.

Best steakhouse in Milwaukee without a doubt! Friendly bartenders who pour a great drink and the absolutely best steaks in the city. The price is right too. Whenever I try a new steakhouse in town I regret it and wish I would have gone to 5 O'Clock Club!

I went to 5 O'clock several years ago, and remember being so, so impressed. This time, I came back with my girlfriend while we were in town for a wedding, and I was worried it wouldn't be as good as I remember. Turns out, I had nothing to worry about - it really is just as good as I thought. From the cocktails to the salad, crab cakes, and of course steaks, everything was absolutely on point.

This was a first trip to this iconic restaurant for everyone in our party. The service was excellent. The staff walked us through our evening while we enjoyed a cocktail. The Old Fashions were well prepared. Initially they sat us in a corner near the emergency exit which was cold on a very cold Friday evening but graciously moved us to another table. The relish tray, salad and bread were freshly prepared. Although the portions are extremely large, the steaks, prime rib and scallops were enjoyed by everyone in our party. The steaks were prepared just as we had ordered them. The only item that was slightly off was the cauliflower which arrived cold but was still very good. There was no room for dessert.
The atmosphere is dated but I guess that is part of the charm. There is not a lot of room between tables and when we first sat down we could have easily participated in the conversation of the table behind us. Overall it was a good experience. We won't hesitate to go back next time we are thinking about steak.

This restaurant is a tradition in Milwaukee and has been operating for 70 years. I live out of state but try to eat at this vintage steakhouse whenever possible when visiting. We dined on New Year's Eve. It was very busy when we arrived for our 9pm reservation. The food is consistently good and it is definitely "the place to go" for an excellent steak dinner. Cocktails at the bar are always good and the bartenders know what they are doing and are always friendly. I find the bar to be a comfortable place to relax, and have cocktails, even on evenings I do not intend to dine. The dining room staff is friendly, attentive, and does a nice job. Obviously, management does a nice job keeping things "flowing" even when the restaurant is packed with patrons. This restaurant has my high recommendation for great food and a fun night out. I will absolutely return.

Dinner was good over all - we love the ambiance. It was NYE so service was not good. Got seated upstairs, freezing cold, server was super rushed. We felt uncomfortable asking to refill drinks if she had the time. No offer of dessert or after dinner drinks. Rushed through everything - at one point I had to restate her description of menu to rest of table because no one heard her and she sped through it. We finally left after dinner thinking food was good but next year going to stay in and make dinner ourselves.

Sevice excellent. The food is breath taking. The climate is so comfortable. My family loved every essence of it and and has expressed nothing but love over the preparation of the food. We will be back soon to express our gratitude.

Sooooo Good!!! You just can't beat the steaks here! I have been here at least 5 times and I have always been totally impressed! The king cut fillet is massive and you could cut it with a spoon. Baked potatoes are equally huge and good. I also enjoyed the hand muddled old fashions and the free valet parking. Courtney was our waitress and she was great!

The food was superb, as usual. However, the service and food delivery were much slower than what we've experienced in the past. The waitress was attentive. I just think the food was super super slow to receive and then not how it was ordered. It was rectified. It wouldn't keep us from going here again. Bring your wallet. It is expensive but considered a treat by us!

The service was great! The ambiance was a bit more like a bar than dinner and it was a little crowded. I do like that it is a reservations only restaurant and your table is ready to go when you sit down. Our waitress was very nice, friendly, and prompt even with it being as busy as it was on a Tuesday night. The food was delicious! My fiancé does nothat like shrimp scampi but he liked the one I ordered! His steak was also very delicious!
