Reservations for wedding anniversary for 7:30pm on a Saturday night. Waited at the bar where they took our order. Seated at our table at 8:07pm. Entrees didn't arrive until 9pm. Ready to leave at 9:30pm, couldn't settle our bill until 10pm. 2.5 hours and we had a terrible server - numerous other tables were seated and turned over while we were waiting to get our meals and leave.
If the service had been better (even fair) we would definitely be back. But because of this experience, NEVER again.
The food continues to be outstanding at Five O'Clock Steakhouse. The atmosphere is lively and welcoming. We enjoyed our experience and will certainly return.
Terrific supper club experience! Steak was outstanding.
It was a date night for 6 + a birthday and the food and server were amazing. Only issue— it was hard to hear your neighbor
Free valet which was great. We were seated quickly and welcomed by wait staff promptly. It took awhile to get our drink and salad/relish tray. It also took awhile to get the check. I liked the upstairs alley cat lounge. It was much quieter and more of a relaxed, less bustling atmosphere. I was there many years ago when it was Corpers and I feel like the steak was better back then, but overall a good experience!
It was suppose to be for a birthday celebration, NO ONE acknowledged that, even though that was part of the reservation. At the end of the evening I told that to the hostess, she said "oh". So why bother asking if it is a special occasion.
First time attendants...will most definitely return. spectacular night.
Everything was great. Seating not the best. Little tight,
Excellent service and food
Celebrating a 1st place position in our bowling league.
Everything was very good....but not excellent like it once was. Our steaks were very good. However, they did not have that awesome chard on them like they once had. Very ordinary. :(
The whole experience was outstanding! Our waiter was also outstanding and did his job to a T!! The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. Timing was on point. I loved the part sitting in the bar area first and having a little time with a cocktail while our table was being prepared. We will definitely be back and hope we have the same waiter.
My wife and I dined at 5 O'Clock this past Saturday and really enjoyed it. It's a classic old-time Wisconsin Supper Club.
When we first walked in, it was like going back to the iconic Supper Clubs of the 50' and 60's. We were instructed to have a seat at the bar where we were met by our waiter, Mark. He answered all our questions and took our app and dinner orders and informed us that he would prepare our table while we finished our drinks.
A short time later, Mark returned and escorted us to the main dining room where our table was set with a large salad bowl, relish tray, and he soon brought out fresh baked bread.
My wife had ordered a small filet and crab legs while I opted for the 'King Cut' filet (at Mark's suggestion ) both meals were cooked perfectly, and we really enjoyed them.
If you're looking to enjoy a wonderful meal in a Classic Setting, you won't go wrong at 5 O'Clock Steak House.
One word - amazing.
Always wonderful, Ambiance is like a good old time supper club, service is great, and the steaks are the best in town.
We love this place and have been there so many times. However we always go early, around 5 or 6pm. This time we went at 7pm and it was chaotic. We will definitely go back but never at 7pm on a Saturday.
The food was awesome! We live in Chicago and this Milwaukee steakhouse was better than any we've eaten at in Chicago, bar none. Our server (Brittany?) was terrific... very attentive and quick to bring us anything we needed. And the wine list, while not extensive, had a great selection of wines from $40 to $400. It's a supper club, so don't expect any fancy decor, but that's part of it's charm. We'd highly recommend the 5 O'clock Steakhouse and will definitely go back when we return to Milwaukee.
The host was rather rude. I approached the host stand and said I had a reservation for 7. She paused and looked at me condescending before replying, "okay, name?" in a tone that was so unfriendly. She didn't say hi. She didn't ask how we were doing. Nothing. I felt so unwelcome, but we were here for our anniversary, so I didn't want to leave. Every other staff member I encountered was wonderful! From the bartender, to the other servers, and the manager. Our server was impeccable. The food was delicious. I was a little disappointed that I wrote in our reservation notes that we were here for an anniversary, and nothing was done.
Long wait on a Sat. night at 7:00p at bar to get a drink. 45 minutes late getting seating for our reservation. Dimly lit, hard to tell if steak was cooked properly. Noise level extremely loud. Good steaks, certainly not the best I’ve ever had. Will not return
THIRD TIME HERE AND WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK WHEN WE ARE IN TOWN. GREAT STAFF GREAT FOOD GREAT PLACE.
Are you kidding?! Maybe the top one or two restaurant meals I've ever had!
Fun with old fashioned and steak!
Excellent food, drink and service! Favorite steakhouse in town!!!
Overall was a nice experience. My only issue was the level of noise. It was quite busy but there was more loud conversation from tables then background music and the dinning room was pretty cramped up. They took our order at the bar and had two separate tabs (I can see this being a good source of people spending $ waiting). Once finally seated we wer very close to other tables and this made it uncomfortable for servers to move about. The food was excellent and when it did arrive it was well worth the wait.
Twice a year a plan a night out (King's Night) with my uncles and cousins. We base it around a steakhouse we have never experienced. This time around we chose 5 O'clock steakhouse based on numerous recommendations. The service was good, steaks were fantastic and was worth treating ourselves to a nice meal for a night.
However, the only thing I was disappointed in was when making the reservation, it asked for any additional comments. It was one of my cousin's (TJ's) birthday and I made mention of that. I was not looking for any free desert or any discount, but I was hoping somebody at the steakhouse would acknowledge TJ and at least wish him a Happy Birthday. This is coming from someone who has been in the hospitality industry for over 15 years and I know how much a small detail like that makes a good night out to an memorable one that will be spread over and over again.
I had similar experience while in Chicago with my gf and in the same comment box I mentioned it was her birthday weekend and we were down there to see a concert. Well, upon arrival, not only did the hostess know it was her birthday and wished her one, so did our waiter, the restaurant manager and the GM all made special stops to the table. This was a lot and not expected, but I've shared that story with everyone and frequent this place once a year now due to that above and beyond service.
Overall it was a great night and you have a good thing going there. My suggestion for what it's worth is acknowledge what is put in the comment box no matter how small. It's those little things that make an impression that is priceless. Have a great night and I will see you again (just not every year).
I have been here before. Two minor & One major problem.
Minor- we were charged for assperges that we did not receive. It was taken off the bill.
Our waiter seemed over loaded with tables.
Major - The noise level was higher then I ever Remember it. One group in the middle of the room were yelling at each other when talking. I don't know how that can be taken care of. I will be back, but the new couple in town were turned off by how load it was.
Chicago prices, but good food if you are a steak lover. Great waiter. Not the best neighborhood so very glad to have valet parking. Supper club from the fifties atmosphere.
Awesome first experience, very very happy with the entire evening we will definitely be returning and recommending Five o' clock to others!
It was perfect!
excellent steaks! Great wines. very good service.
Awesome place! Best steak in Milwaukee by a long shot.
Excellent food, excellent service. EXCELLENT lemon drop martinis.
Steak was hands down the best I have eaten in Milwaukee. Cooked to perfection and melt in your mouth. Service matched the steak.
The entire staff here is great! Old-school Supper club with huge steaks! One of the best steakhouses around.
Had a fabulous meal! My family and I love supper clubs and this one is just wonderful! A true supper club with having a cocktail/ordering at the bar to snacking on a classic relish tray at your table. The food was phenomenal as well as the service! What a special evening.
It was way better when it was Corpers. Last time the steak was over cooked and tough when I asked for medium rare. It was actually hard to cut and chew. We never experienced that before until this last time we ate there. Very disappointed
The food is amazing. The atmosphere fun. It is well worth the money and drive.
The Ribeye Steak is great and the mushrooms are to die for. I would travel an hour and a half again to eat here.
Awesome food awesome service . We’ve been here 5 times previously and every time has been perfect. Highly recommended.
