The kitchen was super behind and waited over an hour for two steaks, a baked potato and some asparagus.
The waitress was super apologetic, and felt so bad because this was our first time dining there. She was super happy and was the only part of my experience I enjoyed.
The baked potato didn’t even come and I was expecting more flavor for the the price. The porterhouse was kind of tough. The filet was nicely done, but was not seasoned well.
The bread was phenomenal. Great crust, super soft inside! We loved the bread.
So overall, disappointed in my experience, minus the waitress! Again her service was great, gave me dessert to go on the house. That was very good!
Steaks were ok. Salad was heavy on iceberg lettuce. Relish tray was mediocre and scant for 4 people. Cocktails were good though. All the tables were crowded into one loud room. We have had many great dinners in Milwaukee for less money
This is definitely an experience. Melt in your mouth fillets. 0 vegetarian options, which is fine, its a steak house, but I'd hate for anyone to misunderstand before going. Expensive, but great for a planned celebration.
We brought our daughter and son-in-law here as we enjoyed it so much our first visit. Classic old school supper club setting, excellent cocktails and the food was outstanding. We will return again for sure.
My husband and I were celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary.
I would NEVER return to this restaurant again
Our food was brought back 3 times due to not being cooked fully and the other was cold
the restaurant gave me a FREE cup of coffee for our unhappiness - SERIOUSLY
Waitress server were fantastic. Exceptional service. Food was fantastic. The only thing was the stairs, I just had knee replacement and hard to get up and down stairs.
Excellent service and delicious food. Will return again.
Everything was perfect, from the martinis to the steaks, seafood, dessert, and service.
Very loud room. Can't blame anyone for that. Otherwise perfect.
The food was fabulous as always. It was not as busy as usual which was nice for dining.
Wonderful food and service.
We arrived for our 8:30p reservation and weren’t seated until 9:30p, after 3 reservations of two were seated ahead of us at that time slot. There were two open tables and no one filling them. Once we wrapped up they offered us a free dessert, which we didn’t want to lug around for the rest of the night before we go back to our hotel, so they took a single $8 drink off the bill... food was good as always, front desk and waiters need some work communicating and making sure customers aren’t left in the dust for an hour.
Timely seating after a professionally crafted cocktail, food tremendous as usual ..we’ll be back from Chicago soon
Great experience! Sure, the prices are high like any steakhouse, but the portions were generous. The service was outstanding and the steak was the best I have ever had. Will be back!
I planned it a year ago and it was worth it. The service and food were excellent. I will be coming back for sure.
Birthday dinner there & was delicious as always!
Other steak houses come and go, but this place remains the very best in Milwaukee. The Five O’Clock Steakhouse does not ever disappoint. In fact, it’s better and better every time I go.
I love this place. Every business can have an off day. Hoping that’s what this dinner was all about… we were pushed all night by the waitress. We sit down for our salads and bread, and in a couple of minutes here comes our appetizer. Then five minutes after that, our entrées arrived. It’s like they were trying to get us out the door so they can turn the table… The French onion soup never disappoints, it’s the best I’ve ever had anywhere in the world. For whatever reason, both my guest and I had steaks that were not cooked to our satisfaction. The steaks were dry and tasteless, and not well cooked.
As usual, service was first class and the food was delicious! If you love steak, you have to visit here!
Such a wonderful place! Highly recommend! Everything was great!
Service was very rushed - salad and appetizers arrived together then salad was pulled from the table before we were finished with it. Beverages were not offered freshening or additions. Tables are very small to accommodate comfortable dining
Both the food and the service were outstanding. I'll be back.
Super expensive ($430 before tip) for 4 people. Plus $75 round of drinks while ordering. Feels like you’re in a relative’s basement. Atmosphere is just like the Packing House. Skip it - go to Mason Street Grill or The Chop House. You’ll spend no more money and have a nice atmosphere.
The food and the waiter were fine. The hostess crew was like a three ring circus. They had no clue what they were doing. They sat us a table and after a few minutes a waitress came to us and said "you are sitting at the wrong table". Then we were moved to another small table. Ours was a party of two so the smaller table was appropriate. A few minutes later they sat a party of two at the first table which was a setting for four. ??????
We like to sit at the bar prior to being seated. We did this. I had a Brandy Old Fashioned and my wife a Vodka sour. Hers had very little if any vodka and I really can't describe the Old Fashioned. It was like nothing I have ever tasted before.
Sitting in the dining room was like being in a high school cafeteria. It was so loud it was difficult to carry on a conversation. A meal in a supper club should be quite and relaxing. This was not.
We had to wait over an hour for our food after we ordered it. There were tables around us who came in after we did, and had their food and were leaving by the time we got ours. Not sure what the issue was, they would only apologize to us and never said what the problem was.
Great place. Great food. If you leave this place still hungry then that's your fault. It's a little loud in the restaurant so if you're looking for a quiet meal this is not that place.
Everything was amazing! Wish there was a tad more space, but food and service were impeccable
Our dining experience was great. The staff was very nice. It was our 1st time there and we definitely will be back
Great food! The steaks are always delicious but the Baked French Onion soup, oh my! YUM!
A true classic. Keep up the good work! Love this place!
We used to go to Five O'clock Steakhouse on a regular basis. It has always been an incredible place to dine. We don't know where the time went but it had been 25 years since our last visit. But, I can assure you that won't happen again. We are already planning on taking our whole family there for our anniversary in September. The food was excellent, the service was fast and friendly and all the people that work there are incredible. We celebrated my birthday there and it was a night to remember. THANK YOU for making my night special!!! Ann Brown
Excellent food and service!
Recommend by our son. We're glad he did. We took some friends there for a birthday. We all had great food and a great time.
must go while in Milwaukee - best steak. Order while having a drink.
1st time. was recommended by many. i can see why now. like stepping back in time. 1960’s throwback! good pricing. best french onion soup of all time. steak and sides terrific. maybe only complaint was did not know steak was served with au jus already over steak. would have preferred served on the side. this place is the bomb!
Great bar, great service and great food. I will definitely make a return trip.
