Outstanding bone in filet and service. Always a special night out.
Seated almost immediately. Pluses - food was excellent with large portions. Wait staff was good overall. Ambiance somewhat dated/dark. Negative - Bartender gave wrong garnish, coffee came after dessert already finished. Had to wait on 2nd drink quite a long time for waitress to notice finished. Food cooked perfectly. Leftovers sent home in brown paper bag? That seemed somewhat odd.
Going to this restaurant was like stepping back in time to better, simpler days. There is no pretense here, just great food - and big portions at reasonable prices for a quality steakhouse. We were lucky enough to be there on a day they had prime rib - the queen cut was giant, bigger than the king cut at most restaurants.
2nd time I was there in 2 weeks, never was upstairs before. I loved it. Was nice having Eric as my server both times. He brought smiles to everyone's faces. I will always recommend it here, best reason and primarily, I've never had a bad experience here. Thank you All!
Decided I wanted to go to 5 o’clock for my 50th birthday, having always wanting to go there. Invited our friends and made a reservation four 4 at 7:30 on a Saturday night. Valet was great. Walked it to tha bar that must have been 80 degrees. Hectic and full was fine, but the temp was ridiculous.
Service for drinks was ok at the table in the bar.
Once seated, at a booth near the bathroom, that was clearly meant for two, the temp was high, and atmosphere was dismal. All 4 of us sweated through our mediocre meal, while trying to make room at our table for the incoming food.
To say my experience was disappointing is an understatement. I was so excited for the experience and was so disappointed. It got to the point of our table pointing out the bathroom to other customers. To the credit of the chef, all of our steaks were done perfectly, and the jus w/mushrooms was incredible.
I will likely not go back.
Brought our whole family for a special occasion. Fabulous food and drinks!
At first eveything was fine but after having our salad plates removed it seemed our waiter forgot about us. We waited approximately 15 minutes for our food, and we believe that was only due to our waiter glancing our way and realizing we were just sitting there with nothing to eat. He hastily went to the kitchen and retrieved our food. Everytime he did come to our table, he would explain what he was doing i.e. "I am now removing the crumbs from your table". We do not need to know this, just do it.
Always enjoy the food at 5 O'Clock. Great steaks. Plenty of food. Great Service. Only complaint it is very loud in this place.
As always, great service, great food. My top choice in MKE.
First time here, celebrated wife’s birthday, nice touch bringing out a piece of pie for her birthday (very much appreciated). Service, atmosphere and food was top notch. Cool experience, definitely worth the visit.
Our service was wonderful and the atmosphere was fun and busy. I will be going back.
Eric was an excellent, attentive waiter. Food and drinks were spectacular and reasonably priced. Great 1st visit, will be back
This place is amazing! Such a cool atmosphere and the filet is mouth-watering! Would highly recommend!
This is a steakhouse, and so that is the heart of the menu. I found the steak to be good, but I wouldn't call it exceptional. One aspect is that, as pricey as the meals are -- you have to pay for everything except the relish dish! -- there is plenty of it, and you can certainly take some home. The service was great ... staff are very friendly. This is the place to go if you want to impress somebody.
Our only issue with our experience was that it took a very long time to get our entrees.
Excellent food, and ev better service! Go for the supperb steaks and enjoy the old fashioned ambience! What a night!
We wanted good steak and heard this was the place to go. We heard right! Ordered filet and it was delicious. Stephanie was great also.
Great family night out, food was delicious. Fun time
I came here 4 years ago before I got married and it was great. I told my now husband how wonderful a time I had, so I brought him. I was furious from the time we walked in, we were shuffled to a corner of the bar that was so crowded we had to constantly apologize to people that were sitting behind us. It was warm and muggy, the waitress was rude she laid a menu on the bar and walked away ,then came back 10 minutes later ran thru the menu choices and told us to follow her. Seated us then told us she'd be back , after 20 minutes she came back and said our food was on the way. She took our drink order and came back with the wrong drink for me. The bartender brought me the right drink. Our food finally came, my husband ordered prime rib well done it was bloody, i ordered filet Oscar medium well and it too was bloody. She asked if we wanted her to have it re-cooked ,we said NO!! We will pay for what we have and leave.Needless to say not a good experience!!
We had a fantastic time. We loved the old supper club feel and the food was outstanding! There was jazz and old R&B musicians playing which really made it even better than it was! This is definitely our new favorite place!
Our server Erik did an outstanding job. We were there for my birthday and to hear the live music of Christopher's Project. The bartenders were very knowledgeable and friendly. The steaks were cooked perfectly with wonderful flavor.
We love the way they have kept the true supper club feel. The free valet parking is another great perk.
Have always loved this restaurant. Lived in the neighborhood years ago. Good then and now. Food is always excellent and the quantities are good. Some times it is noisy and crowded making it hard to talk to table mates but we were there for the food. I would recommend it to anyone.
Our waitress was Crystal, and she was EXCELLENT!!!!
I had a Sidecar, and hubby had a Cosmopolitan at the bar while we looked at the menu. Drinks were BIG and good.
My husband and I had Rib Eyes medium rare done to perfection. The huge salad that was waiting for us when we arrived at our table was super fresh and delicious. It was fun being able to pick 3 salad dressings that we could "play" with, and there was a cute little relish tray also. The baked potatoes were HUGE. My husband and I shared 1\2 of a potato and took the other 1\2 home along with the steaks that we couldn't finish (they were 21oz. each). My husband liked the mushrooms that were stuffed with crab (I'm not a fan of crab). We both were a little disappointed with the asparagus- a little to crunchy for us.
This was our first time here even though I am 69yrs. and hubby is 76yrs. and has wanted to go there for years. When you enter, there is a sign that says to check in at the hostess desk. It is not obvious where this is, especially since the bar is immediately at the entrance filled with people and there is wait staff every where taking orders from the customers at the bar. You have to squeeze between those at the bar in order to get to the Hostess Desk which is not well marked.
There is lots of noise, so those hard of hearing will need some help.
We will go again.
Great food! Crystal was our server and she is awesome
Excellent old school super club atmosphere. Very good food. Bottle wine prices were reasonable. Our first visit and we will be back.
Food was very good as usual, but all dinners were not hot when served, warm at best. My guess was server was distracted with other things. Not good.
The best steak we have had in a very long time. Joe the bartender made a fantastic old fashioned made the supper club way. Fantastic.
Everything was great as usual. Lots of large groups dining in the area increased the noise level around us. Not enough to ruin the evening, but made communicating a little difficult.
Great food and drinks, as is always the case at this steakhouse. Tonight our service was not the same caliber as we've had in the past. Our waitress seemed a bit impatient or possibly having a not so good day, and our food was very rushed. We were hurried from the bar to our dinner table after only two sips of our cocktails, had barely started to eat our salads, relish tray, and bread when the entrees arrived. We put our still full salad plates to the side to make room for the entrees and our waitress wanted to removed all of the salad items. We told her to please leave them as we would like to finish our salads eventually. This is truly a rare occasion for us to be displeased with service and it won't stop us from returning.
The food was absolutely delicious and our server crystal was so attentive to our needs.
To start the steaks were outstanding. Mussel appetizer was just OK. Service was a little off.
As is their custom we were sat at the bar to order. I know some people don't like this, but that is their thing and it is not going to change. I don't mind it because I always get a before dinner drink so I don't really feel like I am being pressured. We had the thinner bartender with facial hair, sorry did not get his name, and he was great. Our waiter was good but seemed like he was some what distracted. Got our app and salads fine, but then there was a bit of a wait. When he came out next he asked if we wanted dessert. We said we would probably like our steaks first and he apologized and went off back to the kitchen and brought them. He said the kitchen did not notify him, which could be true, but as our waiter I would assume he would be on the lookout for his customers entrees.
Overall I would go back. The Steaks are really great. The Bacon Wrapped Filet was prepared perfectly and the Parmesan Cream Sauce was really flavorful. The King filet was perfect both that night and a couple of days later when we finished it. Even with the little hiccups it was a good meal.
A Classic in Milwaukee! Great Steaks! Great Service.
The Filet, Porterhouse and Onion Rings were all excellent. For whatever reason the service was slower than previous visits. Our reservations were for 6 PM, our order was taken @ about 6:10 & we were seated at that time. Our food didn't arrive until almost. 7 PM.
Awesome food and service! Great place to celebrate a birthday dinner for my bestie!
Food was delicious and service was outstanding. We had a very nice evening.
Excellent service and great food!
1940s-50s style Supper Club atsmosphere , Steaks cooked to perfection and FRESH seafood.👍🏼
You can have a relish tray, and not be a supper club, but you cannot be a supper club without the relish tray.
In a nice twist, you are presented with menus at the bar, and order while enjoying your brandy old fashioned.
Once you get to the table, your food begins arriving immediately.
Delicious wine, salads, and steaks. The best prime rib (Friday and Saturday) I’ve had in quite some time. Free valet parking which you should use as the neighborhood is not the best.
Party of five and we all agreed this place by far serves the most tender, juicy steaks in Wisconsin!
