Five O'Clock Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
The steaks we ordered were cooked to perfection and tasted great. I really like the charred steaks. The baked potato and salad was as expected. The sautéed spinach was marginal. Carson's sauteed spinach taste much Better. The ambiance was great and live music helped the mood for my date and I. I would definitely return!
I did not like the fact that they did not offer an option to have your meat cooked well done. My husband and I could not really enjoy our meals because it was so pink. Some people may prefer that but we did not so it would have been nice to have that option. The strawberry martini was delicious though and the service was also pretty good.
This steakhouse has been a family tradition for probably 40 years. The food is phenomenal and the atmosphere is eclectic and heart-warming. We had a newer server this last visit and were surprised that our cocktail glasses remained empty as long as they did - she'll figure it out. We love making this a special visit when relatives come back to town. The steaks are just tremendous!
Our server, Alyx, was super! Took good care of us. The live music of Kirk Tatnall was superb and gave the whole restaurant a great vibe and feel. The steaks were done to perfection and very large portions. The old neon signs lighting through the curtains combined with the dated supper club feel is a must-do experience.
I have been here multiple times and it never disappoints. On this visit we had four couples so the bar and seating experience was a little bit different - we didn't order at the bar. Buffalo shrimp appetizer was awesome! Bartenders are friendly and are always consistent in their drink presentation. Steaks are consistently delicious. We'll be back on our next special occasion.
Five O'Clock Steak House never disappoints! Took a nephew there( for his birthday) because we knew he'd have a fabulous steak. He's from San Diego, so the "old supper club" ambiance hit the experience out of the ball park! Great dining for all involved. Service was very good, food was top notch.
Old school traditional steak house that does it right. First they seat you at the bar to have a cocktail. There you order your meal, then you are escorted to your table for a fantastic steak dinner.
Looking forward to getting back in town for another 5 o'clock meal!
This was the noisiest restaurant I have been in maybe ever! Table too close together. The noise level was so loud you would see people sitting at tables not conversing because they couldn't be heard. To add insult to injury they had live music come on to add to the misery. This is not a hot new trendy place, it is old style and tacky. My steak was full of gristle and they had put some type of au ju over it that had a canned flavor. The waitress saw that it was inedible and gave some type of credit but not enough to save the meal. Definitely a one time adventure. Steak was also dramatically overprice for location and clientele.
Overall, it was an amazing experience. The pre-dinner drinks at the bar were very relaxing and stayed true to the supper club process I grew up on. The service was spectacular. No other word to describe it. Friendly, accommodating and very attentive. The only thing I would knock them down a star for is my father (on his Father's Day celebration dinner) ordered a NY Strip that was very tough and had way too much fat on it. For a steak that pricey, the preparation and quality was lacking.
A great old fashion, neighborhood steakhouse. It's nice but not fancy, great cocktails, wine list was good, family style salad and relish tray, steakea prepared perfectly. I had a terrific time with an old friend. Love the way you start in the bar, very unique. If you are looking for a new age romantic restaurant this is not your place. This is not a knock, this place is old school and I liked it. I enjoy old fashion, authentic places and this was one of those restusturants. If I get back to Milwaukee I will definitely go back. We went on US Open weekend but I get the sense it gets busy, so would recommend reservations.
What a unique place! I wasn't familiar with the 'supper club' approach to dining and it was a blast. Unbelievable service from Stacey, love the bar team, and the food was great. Not sure I've seen a 16oz. filet on menu before and it was cooked perfectly! Definitely highly recommend and definitely will be back!
The ambiance and style of this steak house is a pleasure to be a part of. The server will give you your menus and introduce themselves while you sit at the bar. You order at the bar, then when you are ready to sit down, you arrive at your table with full bread basket, garnish tray, and salad ready for you-pure dining enjoyment! The steaks are top notch prime quality. I'll look forward to my next visit.
Came here for an anniversary. It was a good experience. I'm not sure how I feel about being offered drinks and being billed separately as we sat by the bar area waiting to be seated. Also, although very nice and friendly, our waitress wasn't very attentive. We were done already for a little while when another waitress was kind enough to notice and asked us if we were done and started packing our leftovers, then our waitress saw and came to finish up. It would've been nice if the other girl was our waitress so our tip would go to her. Overall, the food was great. This was our second visit, and the steak did not disappoint once again. We will be back.
We were looking for somewhere different to spend our anniversary and chose 5 o'clock steakhouse. The experience was very different but we loved it. You aren't rushed to your table right away instead you sit at the bar, have a drink and look over the menu before your server comes over and takes your order. The steaks we ordered were cooked perfect and were amazing.
