Five O'Clock Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews

Unbelievable experience. I may have been over hyped from friends and co workers on how great this place is but it was a wonderful date night experience to say the least.
My girlfriend had a beautiful looking Filet Oscar while I went with the Bone In Ribeye. I felt it was same quality steak as many others around town which was quite good, but again I felt I was over hyped on how amazing it was.
I loved the Old Fashioneds at the bar and the 2 piece band that did some great R&B favorites on a Saturday night. The ambience and service was superb.

Stelio really knows how to make people feel at home. we are treated as his special guests and recognized for being one of his "regular" customers. we don't get the opportunity to go there as often as we would like; at the same time we get there as often as we can. while the decor is outdated, it does add a little to the authentic feel of the place. it is 70 years old after all and a nice refreshing change from the chic and more expensive restaurants competing for the same audience. they sear the steaks; yet i can still get a rare steak that comes out perfectly every time. the bartenders are knowledgeable and the waitstaff friendly. i'm not one who likes the waitstaff to entertain me or keep me company. this is the perfect example of service and food quality that can make your dining experience one of the best you can ever have.

We had a post theatre dinner with friends and everyone enjoyed the food. The old school, supper club atmosphere appeals to us. We also like the warm, homemade bread, the relish plate and the attentive service. Keep up the good work.

The service was great and the salad and relish tray were very good. The baked potateo was not completely baked, about 2/3 was edible. The prime rib was tender but lacked real flavor and the bone in rib eye was prepared very nicely but the cut was stringy and grisly. Overall the meals dib not meet expectations or live up to the restaurant's reputation.

My friend and I came for dinner on a Friday night. We hadn't been here in several years. We both ordered filets, mine was great. She likes hers medium well and it was under cooked. She sent it back once, they fileted it and it was still under done. She did not want to send it back again, nor did she eat it. The server was less than apologetic. At least the whiskey old fashiondes were awesome.

Can't beat the ambiance and the tradition of this classic supper club. Drinks were strong and delicious and service was for the most part, warm and welcoming. Steaks were large but unfortunately gristly with patches of silverskin and slightly overcooked. She didn't care for the au jus (too much like Worcestershire sauce) but I enjoyed it. Would love to try another WI supper club for comparison.

Everything was great except:
The servers have metal carts which they use for clearing plates from the tables.
They dump all of the dishes in there and it makes A LOT of noise.
Our table was right in the middle of the room, and the cart was right behind my chair.
So that spot was the clearing house for the whole room.
The noise made it had to talk to/hear my companion and that made it hard for me to enjoy my meal.
The food was great.

Once again, the appetizers and dinner was outstanding. I am never disappoints when I visit. The staff is outstanding. This is the home of the best steak I have ever ate and that includes just about every steakhouse listed as the best steakhouses in America. I would rank this as the best.

Steak was delicious. Our server wasn't too helpful. She didn't stop at our table once. The only time she spoke to us was when we were done with our meal and she asked if we wanted desert. They were busy... I get it, but the table behind us their server checked on them several times. For a meal that's going to cost me over $100 I expected more from our server.

There's usually a wee wait for your table, so we sat at the bar and chit chatted until the table was ready. Our server continuously checked on us to keep us up to date in the table and she made sure that we didn't need anything.
They had a live musician that night who kept us all entertained.
Overall, it was an extremely pleasant experience....as always.

The steak that I had was excellent! The wait for it was quite long, however. Those in my party who had seafood were not as excited. We ALL loved our steaks however. Place has a 60s décor so could use an update. Bathrooms are in the middle of everything. I would go again just for the steak but not on a Saturday night. It was too loud to converse.

This place is the best! My wife and I found it about 20-25 years ago. The best steakhouse in America, with a baked potato to die for. They are celebrating their 70th anniversary and there is no doubt in my mind that they will be there long after me.

First, I have been coming to the Five O'clock steak house (Coerpers) for over 15 years. The food has been suffering every year since.
My suggestions: If you recommend using honey and butter on the house baked sourdough, maybe stock the table with some local delicious honey and not the cheap generic "honey bear" bottle that is processed in NY. Same with the relish tray. Wisconsin has some of the best local produce and pickling farms anywhere. Just upgrading these two things will greatly increase the experience. We could go into the tacky neons some other day. Please start with quality ingredients first. From scratch is a bit more labor intensive, but its actually cheaper in the long run. Take it easy on the butter doused steak as well. A few easy changes that will go a long way.

Best place in a terrible neighborhood. Free valet parking, just pull up and they take care of it! Food is absolutely top notch, and service is second to none. Be sure to make a reservation, check in when you get there, then relax at the bar. The place is old (historic), and run like an old fashioned lounge type supper club. You will leave stuffed with the best comfort food (steak) you can get. Its not a fancy schmancy type cuisine, just a nice slab of meat, cooked to perfection.. Or fish or that other stuff. Saturday night is crowded and noisy though, since the place is so small. Takes away the romantic part.

What a fabulous time we had, not to mention the food,drinks and staff were outstanding !Saw the 5 o'clock on the food channel,glad we decided to make Milwaukee a little over nite getaway and made reservations!We'll be back.

My husband and I were visiting Milwaukee for the LSU football game in Green Bay and made reservations after seeing the restaurant on the internet. We like to try places that people from the area eat not just the very touristy places. And this looked like a good local place to eat. We were very pleased with our experience - when we arrived we were a little surprised by how the seating and ordering was done - you have a seat at the bar (we ordered drinks while we waited because we were a little bit early) and your server gives you the menu and you order while at the bar. The server then places the order and prepares your table (with silverware and water etc.) and when the table is ready you are brought to the table. It was a little unusual but we really enjoyed the whole experience and it worked very well. We did not feel rushed and the server explained everything and answered all of our questions. The food was very good and hot when it arrived at the table. Overall it was a very good experience and we enjoyed it very much.

Haven't been there in 20 years! Even with a new owner it doesn't seem to have 'missed a beat'! I came in from Dallas and to my surprise even a couple of the locals I had dinner with had never heard of it or been there. They were impressed. I will be back.

The steaks here are delicious. If you're looking for a total supper club experience this is the place, right down to the relish tray before dinner. The decor is straight out of the 50s which gives the place its charm.

Recently voted best steakhouse in Milwaukee. I agree. The food is absolutely delicious. The decor is original and thus classic super club. But hands down the best part is the staff. Super friendly, attentive, knowledgeable.

We were able to take shuttle from our hotel & arrived an hour earlier than expected. We were told it is customary to order drink at bar and then place your food order before being seated. Since we arrived early they were very accommodating to seat us immediately with no wait. We were not rushed. The steaks were incredible. They were presented exactly as ordered. After dinner we ordered an after dinner drink and enjoyed on their small outdoor patio. We would highly recommend this great supper club.

The food is amazing. It is unique in the way they take your order while you get a drink at the bar and then seat you. It was a little loud and hard to talk/hear the person/people you are with. Overall I would definitely go back for special occasions. It was a little pricey for me to go more often.

The biggest steak you can ever imagine! It was quiet, the service was amazing and the food was great. Our steaks came out a little under prepared than what we asked, which was a little disappointing for a steakhouse, but the staff was quick to fix that. Overall, still highly recommended!

My friends and I have been celebrating various birthdays as well as the odd-ball happenstances. That night we were celebrating a good colon test. Which was the reason we handle to cancel the week before. The friend was still recuperating from the drugs he had been given and was warned not to drive. Each of us ordered something different and enjoyed the mean. The service was from a young waiter who kept us in food, water and other drinks. We look forward to the next occasion. The atmosphere (music, conversations from other tables, etc.) did not distract us from hearing each other. We will be returned.
