Five O'Clock Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
We were not seated at our Open Table reservation time and told we must sit in bar until our table was ready. That is fine but if you have a reservation and their are open tables it would be nice to be seated promptly. The ribeye is always my favorite at 5 O'Clock club and it was tasty but it was easily 30 percent smaller than it used to be as was my colleagues. Flavor is great but for $45 for the steak I was surprised it had shrunk in size. STill great flavor and au jus but lacked the wow factor I am used to for this restaurant.
An excellent menu, and a little pricey...but the high quality of the food made it well worthwhile.
We were in there on a Tuesday night and the packed house/noise level was very high...it made it difficult for us to carry on our conversation.
However, we will be going back...and taking some friends with us!
As usual, Milwaukee's Iconic 5 O'Clock Steakhouse never disappoints. We arrived a little early with dinner reservations at 6:00 to make our 8:00 show. We were sat immediately in a booth in the bar (quieter than the big dining room) . We had the typical impeccable service and our dinners were delicious as always. Only complaint was that I ordered my filet medium-rare, my husband ordered his medium and somehow, the cook on the two steaks got flipped. But no complaints - we ate every bit anyway! LOVE this place for steaks, service and that "back in time" atmosphere.
My wife and I absolutely love the 5 O'clock Steakhouse. It's just a great place to come, have a great time and enjoy an excellent steak, huge baked potato, salad, relish tray and wonderful cocktails, beers, waters, sodas, etc. April, our waitress was wonderful and funny, the bartenders were super, the valet was professional and courteous, but my favorite part is when the owner comes by to see how you're doing. He's friendly, interesting and interested in your whole restaurant experience there, very professional but down to earth. I just love the place.
Having been here in the past I was truly disappointed with my return. Worst martini ever, service iffy at best, when I complained to the maître d' I was bought another bad martini. Somehow, a second bad martini didn't quite make up for the disappointment when you're eating a $50 steak.
5 O'clock Steakhouse is always great . Tremendous tasting Filet Mignon none BETTER !! Drinks are never short poured. My family has been coming here since the 60's and have NEVER had a bad steak . Amazing !! The wait staff is always attentive to our needs, especially Faye our favorite waitress !! Well done 5 O'clock Steakhouse
The best beef filet in Milwaukee; perfectly prepared and seasoned, can almost cut it with a butter knife it's so tender. The sides are pretty basic and the presentation of the steak is just the steak in juice on a plate but the steak more than makes up for the so-so presentation!
Dined here over 5 years ago and the food was spectacular. It is now managed by a new owner, and was concerned food and service would be not be as good as the last visit. I was very surprised to find both the food and the service was even better! Everyone at the table raved about the meal. This will become our special-occasion destination.
Great as usual! My mother has been coming here for 40 years for a reason. Thought this would be a great place to introduce her to my new lady friend. Unfortunately, they are besties now... But I got a great dinner, and leftovers for lunch, out of the deal. If you want to impress someone with great food in a unique atmosphere, this is the place.
Always the best steak in town but haven't been there in a while and at this visit realized that you now have to pay for your potato - outrageous!! In all the years that I have frequented this restaurant you received a fantastic steak, potato, salad, bread and vege platter for your order and now you have to pay an additional $5 for a potato. Ridiculous and will regretfully change my decision to come there again, especially since I can go to Milwaukee Steakhouse and get comparably the same steak including the potato for the same price. It is not like this restaurant is in the best location and dining atmosphere. The decision to charge for a potato should be looked at again. Especially since it was not done before.
Our experience was AMAZING! It was great for the price and food. Our waitstaff was amazing and very tentative for a busy Friday night. The experience of a supper club was amazing. We've never been to a place like this. My husband and I food was cooked to perfection and absolutely mouth watering. I had their signature filet mignon and my husband had the lamb osso bucco. We had a very great anniversary dinner. We will be coming back very soon.
Service was very slow and not so good. One of our steaks was grossly under cooked and when brought back was not good. We didn't not receive anything off for the ruined steak just a "sorry". For the kind of money we paid we expected a lot more. We would not go back.
This is one of my favorite restaurants however my experience was terrible Saturday night for the first time in years. My waiter was new and boy could we tell, our food took forever to come out and I had to send my steak back because it was over cooked. The second steak was even worse, tasted like BURNT toast. The waiter tried to tell me what medium well was despite my husband ordering his steak the same way and they were very different not to mention this was literally my 20th visit to the place. I was told they have a new chef prior to leaving. Get him in line or we wont be coming back!!!
Personally, I won't return! Unfortunately, my mother and her party had to sit back in the kitchen area under the stairs. Reservations were made at least a month in advance, but we were told no other seats were available. Not true! I'm hoping this was not intentional, but I think it was. Working as a news reporter, I love to send reviews. I will be back as a reporter, not a customer. The receptionist (older lady with white hair) was rude every time we had contact with her. While the food was fine, the event was ruined by these other factors. Too bad!
This restaurant came highly recommended and they did not disappoint. It has the feel of an old-school supper club. I got the ribs which was okay. My bf steak was very good. crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. It was pretty crowded because it was Valentine's Day, but overall the experience was nice.
The food was outstanding and the overall experience was great!!! Only problem was we got there 30 minutes early for drinks and we had to wait 30 minutes past our reservation to get seated at our table. Our wait before food arrived was 1.5 hours after we ordered!!!
They compted our table with a desert which was good but would have liked a deduction in our bill or gift certificate for a future date!!!
