Five O'Clock Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
Went to Five O'clock Steakhouse as I love Supper Clubs. It is dark, but some people were dressed up and that was fun to see. The neighborhood is a little iffy, but it is right off the expressway just a few blocks. It has a valet parking lot. There were a lot of people and kids outside making noise and it was a tiny bit disconcerting. I had steak medallions and shrimp. It was good, but not the best I've had. Fresh bread with honey and butter was good. Key lime pie was delicious. It is pretty pricey. I usually get steak and lobster when I go out, but this time the price was around $68.00 so I passed on it.
Have been here many times, and this was a fantastic meal and experience as always. You'll slow down here, have a drink or two before dinner at the bar, place your order while at the bar, and be taken to your seat when the table is ready. Old fashioneds were on-point. Ribeye excellent. Relish tray, bread, and salad are always great. Went back to the bar after dinner (this is a supper club after all) and enjoyed a solid Brandy Alexander and some interesting recommendations. The ribeye is getting pricey at $46, but it's as good as anyone's in town. Beware there is a pretty heavy char on the steaks - super flavorful, a little tough to cut, but the steak is tender beneath. Also beware a very retro and casual environment, some people in button-downs and some in T-shirts (please, no hats). This place is a lot of fun.
First time there n had the best time of my life n my wife was surprised I took her there n she always wanted to go. Had the best waiter n had the owner came by to see if everything was good n said yes. If use never been here in your life you have to n you will fall in love.
Long process for an ok experience. You are forced to start you dining experience in the bar where they take your meal order. This way they can "prep" your table. I couldn't see anything unique about our table. I think it is more of a way to get you to order drinks from the bar which you must close-up before moving into the dining room.
I felt exceptionally bad because I was at a business dinner with 2 people I didn't really know. What if one of them was trying to quit drinking and now I had just thrust them into this situation where they are corralled in a bar? There should be the option to move ahead or not.
I was very disappointed. I got the rib eye steak, and it has gristle through out. I could hardly cut through it. My wife had the filet mignon, which was very good. The salad left a lot to be desired.
You get a much nicer salad at The Texas Roadhouse. Enjoyed the cocktails.
It is not what I remembered. I will not return. It was my birthday, and I was really looking forward to it.
3rd visit but our 1st time disappointed with quality of the steaks :( Our bone-in Ribeye was difficult to cut, chew, or enjoy because of tendon that snaked through the steak. The NY Strip also had an untrimmed tendon along one edge that once cut away left us with a very enjoyable steak.
Our expectations were very high given the Five O'Clocks reputation and our previous two experiences. But all in all you should have high expectations for $50 steaks. I have to assume this was a brief slip in quality and a statistical fluke that two steaks with problems would be delivered to the same table. We'll be back but only after checking for addition reviews.
We started our night with hand crafted cocktails, very good. Pretty cool to see of the 'older cocktails' on the menu. We were seated for dinner and served our salad (very good with a variety of fresh vegetables), the relish tray and warm bread. The steaks were literally out of this world, so so good. We split a baked potato which was huge, thanks for the tip from the waitress. Overall, an excellent experience. I haven't been there in over 10 years and I definitely was not disappointed and neither was my date.
My expectations were definitely set too high for this place. I went here for an anniversary and I was under the impression this was an upscale restaurant. Actuality was only the price per plate was upscale. It was extremely noisy and people were dressed in bummy jeans along with raggedy shirts. The greeter was not friendly. Although our waitress was pleasant and helpful, our orders were incorrect. I was greatly disappointed and will not return. I did not experience the romantic dinner I planned.
This is my favorite restaurant. The service is always great and the food is exceptional. The manager, Stelio, is welcoming and attentive to the guests. The bar has a great selection of cocktails. I recommend this for anyone who loves a great steak or seafood.
i have heard about this restaurant for 45 years but never stopped till fri nite w/ a dear friend whom i wanted to treat after he had done a job well.
it is a very folksy place, true milwaukee!
the server, alex, was exactly what we like--friendly, attentive, efficient!
the steaks were to die for; king cut filet mignon and prime rib---
i lliked that there wasn't an overwhelming display of food (i lose my appetite)--
salad bowl excellent, onion rings ho-made, relish tray so supper clubbish and retro satisfaction....even the vaet parking guy was happy and friendly. Ane, BEST OFF ALL, I slightly warmed the leftovers tonite and they were bettern the first time around....i will be back w/ a new friend when i wanna splurge---thanks alot!
a few things were a miss I could find no reglar beverge list on line nore was there a desert menue valet parking and what types of credit cards you exept should be front page on your web site also a cleare dress code should also be stated I saw many pairs of tinnis shoes and very causal clothing being warn by other costmers I was disapointed to see this over all it was a very nice night and the food and service was AAA+++ it was a bit dark this is one thing ajustable liting might mate it more enjoyable and also easer to take good pics of the event thank you
Excellent "old school" supper club scene/vibe that I grew up with and loved. My son is attending Marquette law school and this will definitely be the "steak place" that we frequent when visiting! I can't say enough about the excellent food & service! It is a little cramped, tables close together, and it did get pretty noisy but well worth it for the tasty food!
Our "go to" steak place when we get back to MKE ! It's a "special occasion" spot for us.
Bartenders & their potions are first-rate! The brandy old fashions were great! Steaks did not disappoint either. We got a rib-eye, filet oscar & filet medallions. The sides ( huge baked potatoes ; steak fries)and bleu cheese French dressing for the salads were great.
Owner visited tables and was solicitous about our experience...and most appreciative of our business! We'll be back!
You have never experienced the real flavor of a steak until you have dined at the 5 O'clock! The experience of an authentic supper club is priceless. You experience the bar while your table is set up, then you go back to the bar After your dinner for your after dinner drink and experience the great live music. Definitely plan on a relaxing evening. Truly one of Milwaukee's best with service and friendly staff and exceptional food.
