    I'm from New York originally so I've had great steak in Manhattan and this place ranks up there in my top 2! The bartenders know how to make a drink. The service is outstanding. But most of all the steak is amazing!! If you haven't tried it make reservations to do so because me writing a review cannot describe the food. The folks there are kind and welcoming. Thank You very much!!!

    The food was very good, the only thing we weren't a fan of was a dessert drink, Pink Squirrel. We had the french onion soup, onion rings, salad with parmesan peppercorn and homemade ranch, BoneIn Ribeye, BoneIn Filet Mignon, New York Strip, Cheesecake, Creme Brûlée. Moscow Mules were awesome. When you come in it's a different seating process, you check-in and they have you sit at the bar, then when everyone arrives, you stay at the bar and order your food with your server. The server puts in the order and returns to seat you. It was insanely busy so I would recommend, if they don't already, to make a reservation. Once the place was filled it became really loud and we had a hard time talking with each other.

    By far, one of the best steak houses around. They char the outside of the steak locking in all the flavors and juices. We have been going to this restaurant for years and will continue to come back. The service is always outstanding as well as the food. You get a relish tray and fresh bread on the table which adds to the old super club experience that many restaurants have went away with.

    Despite the intimate size of the 5 o'clock club, they were able to accommodate our large group of 8 no problem. I always go the 5 o'clock club expecting a great meal, and I have never been disappointed. This time was no exception. The steaks are the best in the world, and the service is amazing. We were treated like kings. It was a great start to a great night out with the boys.

  • Did not like Filet Oscar
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 11/8/2014
    The ambiance is what I remembered - old school classic supper club. The bar was very active. The service was great. The salad was not too fancy but was fine, the Thai Buffalo Shrimp were good but could have been spicier. The Filet Oscar was not what I expected. I did not think it would be butterflied. Being butterflied allowed more toppings, but it was too much and was kind of a mess. I couldn't enjoy the steak. The Bernaise was too much and not the best I've had. The crab meat was plentiful but didn't impress me in quality. The asparagus was good. I'll go back, but I'll order a regular steak next time.

    Our dining experience at 5 Oclock Steakhouse was exquisite. We have been there before, so it was not a new thing for us. The table server was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. Even the bartender was well versed about the menu. Everything about 5 Oclock is extraordinary. From the shrimp scampi to the fresh salad and bone-in filet! The wine and key lime pie were excellent. The atmostphere is cozy and romantic. Valet parking is convenient. The 5 Oclock steakhouse is one of the best and most exquisite dining experiences in Milwaukee. If you have not been there, GO!

    We had dined at the Five O'Clock Steakhouse a few times previously, and even though it was pricey, the food was always excellent. We made reservations for dinner at 7 pm on my birthday, and as expected, the place was packed. We were told it would be about 15 minutes before our table would be available. A full 35 minutes later, they still had no table for us. However, we watched as several other people got seated before us, that had arrived after us. The hostess was rude, and they did not care how long we had waited. The restaurant was clearly overbooked for the evening, despite the fact we had made our reservations well in advance. This place is WAY to pricey to get treated so poorly, so beware!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    We have been here several times as well as almost all the steak houses in Milwaukee. The steaks are second to none. But, owners have decided to sardine in as many tables as possible, making the dining experience uncomfortable. Initially we were seated with a neighboring table so close to us that the back of the coat hanging on the chair was touching our table! We asked for a change of table and were accommodated right away. Why have they crammed in so many tables as to make the experience poor? The signature metal cart used to delive the food has almost no place to go now that it's so tight. We appreciate good steaks but the overall experience is just as important.

    Great steaks as usual, but.........sent 2 drinks back because they were not made correctly and the new crab mac and cheese failed to impress. At 8:00pm on a Sat night, the place was only half-full and nearly empty by 10:00pm. I guess the days of selling out all reservations a week in advance are gone and the popularity of this place continues to decline. Maybe it's the average $400 bill + tip for a party of four? They need to do something here before this restaurant becomes just a memory of what a great steak place was.

    Five O'clock never dissapoints. An old fashioned steak house where they take your order at the bar and then when your table is ready you are seated. Georgia the owner is fantastic and keeps her staff on a tight shift! The service is excellent but it is the food that is fantastic! This time along with steaks (the best!) we tried the BBQ ribs...fantastic! Who'da though? The flavor of all their meats is wonderful cooked to perfection. I am not much of a red meat lover, but when I want that once in a while steak....this is the place!!

    My friend from Houston, Tx thought the steak was great but was sorely disappointed in the garlic bread and the $9.00 he paid for a couple of ounces of spinach made his dining experience less than what it should have been.

    The food is excellant. The noise level was so hgh, we had to yell across the table. Our waitress was nice, but failed to return to ask us if we wanted dessert or coffee -She simply handed us the bill. We waited quite a long time after finishing our meal to have it cleared.

    My boyfriend and I work at a hotel downtown and have really been wanting to go to a good steakhouse. The restaurant is set up as a supperclub style and has a very welcoming and energetic vide. Our steaks and food were AMAZING!! The service is top notch and the staff goes above and beyond for their guests. Stelio Kalkounos who runs the restaurant visits each table to make sure that everyone is enjoying their meals. If you want to go to an steakhouse with amazing food, atmosphere and service, Five O' Clock Steakhouse is the place to be!

    I love the 5 O'Clock club for any occasion where great steaks and cocktails are required. When out of town guests come, we usually hit up this place. Anyone who comes to visit again usually requests it that's how great the food and service is. Some folks may think the decor is dated, but I think it's authentic character that makes the experience even more memorable.

    To start, it was to dark in the restaurant. My wife ordered a steak and shrimp entree so the waitress assumed that she ordered for both of us so she never took my order which meant I had to wait while my wife ate. She ordered a well done steak which came out medium well and I ordered a medium well steak which came out well done. Management came to our table asking several times asking was everything ok. They offered to buy dessert or one free drink. The lady MANAGER a much older women made a wise crack about the waitress being a blonde I thought that was a little unprofessional. We will certainly give them another chance.

    Both my husband and I were beyond expressed and completely satisfied with our dining experience. The steaks were not only humongous but seriously the best tasting steaks we've ever had! We had a side of the Lobster Mac and Cheese and the Chef's Garlic Bread both of them mind blowing delicious! Seriously such generous portions that we were lucky enough to dine on all these delicious delights the following day from our leftovers. Hands down this is our new "place". Staff was super friendly with genuine smiles and excitement as they described the menu to us knowing we were there for our first dining experience. I would highly recommend this establishment and look forward to our next dinning experience there.

The 70's decor is interesting and the bartender and server were excellent and entertaining. Would definitely return if ever in Milwaukee again. This is a great family owned restaurant.

    Very bad experience. Postage stamp size table, noise level over the top, miniscule bathrooms, stale breadsticks, very ordinary bread, not close to warm, rock hard butter, runny salad dressing, soup served while we were still eating our salad, much vaunted relish tray had old musty tasting radishes, meat was served at a temperature slightly warmer than room temperature, lighting level in dining room so low it was impossible to see where the bone in the meat was making it very hard to cut and I couldn't read the bill, one person running valet parking, waited a long time for car to be brought from about 50 feet away. Admittedly they tried to make it better but just couldn't seem to manage it. I left with a splitting headache and very unhappy.

    My last visit to this restaurant was over 10 years ago and it was as if I walked into the same scene again. I did notice that they had cleared away some of the old Christmas decorations from the bar area, but, the order at the bar and then wait to be seated with a drink routine was the same. Dinner was a relaxed, old-school, northwoods friendly steakhouse kind of a meal. While I have had better steaks around the city once in a while I would rate this one as very good and definitely worth the trip downtown. I will definitely not wait another 10 years before I make a return trip.
