Five O'Clock Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
Food was wonderful. Wait times were a bit over what I would think is acceptable. Reservations for 8, weren't seated til 8:40, took us almost an hour to get our appetizer. We could tell something was going on. Servers were very stressed out. Not sure what the issue was, but it was discouraging to want to go there again.
Had 730 reservation..didnt get started with food until close to 9pm. All who ordered filets were cool and one was pretty rare. Ordered it med well. Prime rib order was raw and cool in temp. Womens bathroom with only one stall, posed problem. Women were using the mens room. Havent been there in yrs. Will not recommend or go back. A very disappointed birthday dinner.
This was my first visit to 5 O'clock since the transition from Coerper's and the style of the restaurant was the same which I loved, however I don't recall the dining room as packed with people on my first visit. Not sure if it was only due to it being the holiday season or if this is the way seating now works, however the layout of tables was overwhelming. It felt as though we were on top of our table neighbors. The noise volume in the dining room was so loud it was difficult to hold a conversation with those at our own table. The food and drinks were amazing and I truly did enjoy the food and beverage experience, however I can't say I will visit the restaurant again during a holiday or a weekend. True value in an overall experience is when a customer can fully appreciate not only their food and service but the overall environment. From a business perspective I understand why they serve so many people, however from a customer satisfaction perspective the practice of having tables within inches of one another should be reviewed and updated.
Loved our steak! Place is a bit pricey and you have to order all sides separately (pretty common for steakhouses). The one thing that turned me off was the fact that they put your left overs in a plastic baggy and then a paper bag. Some may like the old school feeling of that but to be honest I felt I should've gotten a nice container to take home for the price we paid.
I highly recommend this restaurant and the King Filet. Our wait person (Stefanie) was very attentive and provided excellent recommendations. Traveled from Florida to sample the steaks at this restaurant and it was well worth the trip. Owner (Stelio K.) stopped by our table to ensure everything was to our satisfaction, which it was. Stefanie and Stelio comped our dessert (Strawbery Cheese Cake) which is made on-premise and was fabulous.
True to form Wisconsin supper club atmosphere. I like the way they season and cook their steaks better than any other restaurant in Milwaukee. Even the non-steak menu items are delicious. I highly recommend getting the ribs as an appetizer to share at table.
We’ve been going to this place for years but if this would’ve been our first time going, I don’t think we would come back. The bartenders were wonderful and the cocktails were great but once we got to the point where it was time to order food is when it went downhill. Our waiter approached us at the bar and basically threw the menus in our faces as he said grab these. Once we ordered and he walked us to our table, I ordered a cocktail which he forgot to put in and asked me 10 mins later what it was I ordered and blamed it on the bar being backed up. We didn’t see him again until our food came, and then after our food came we didn’t see him until I requested our food to be boxed up. He never came back to box up our food, some other waitresses noticed us sitting there for a long time and they boxed up our food. He noticed this and came over and tried to takeover but they were almost done. At the end when we paid the bill, he slammed our change on the table and didn’t even say bye to us. What could’ve been a great night out with a great meal was ruined by a bad waiter. All the other staff that we encountered was great and the food was too, but when you’re paying 50 dollars a steak I expect a certain level of service and our waiter simply didn’t deliver.
This was our first visit to 5 o'clock Steakhouse. The restaurant is in a neighborhood that I found to be less than desirable. I was pleased to find that there is a free valet service, which I took advantage of. Upon arrival one must wade through the bar traffic to a hostess stand on the other side. We were instructed that their procedure is to seat the diner at the bar where our server would come to us, take our order then bring us to the table when it was ready. Since we're not drinkers, we ordered a club soda and Shirley Temple. The bar very full and rather noisy. A group was seated behind us so when our server came to introduce herself and take our order she had to stand to the side and speak loudly to us. When transitioning from the bar to the table, we were instructed to close our bar tab before being seated. I found this awkward and an obvious attempt to keep the bartender's and wait staff's tips separate. Once seated the service was generally fine. There were a few missteps by the server, but nothing worth mentioning as they were simple oversights that were immediately corrected. The food was fine. "Nice" even. Not spectacular. I expected more flourish for the prices. The ambiance of the restaurant is awful, dated, dusty and stale. From our vantage point at the bar I could see cobwebs hanging between the ceiling and the lights over the bar. From our table vantage point I could see what appeared to be formerly be 2 doors cut into the wooden walls...these doors were no longer used and tables were placed in front of them. Desert was wonderful and surprisingly affordable. But, other than desert, everything else was mediocre to below average....and over priced for the experience. Perhaps the restaurant is attempting to be old-fashioned...instead they're successful at being dated. I don't intend on returning.
Blessedly reliable and enjoyable. Though the house salad serving for a single diner is quite daunting and rather ordinary (head lettuce), my server was most cooperative and understanding with packing the extra for me to enjoy another day. My calamari appetizer was generous and tasty. The butterflied filet with crab and asparagus and the special sauce was most enjoyable. But for my taste the asparagus could be have been sauteed or grilled rather than steamed. Again that's just my personal preference.
My husband and I went for our Anniversary and it was our first time at this restaurant. We were both impressed with the service. It was excellent! The drinks were good and the food was great too. I really wanted the prime rib but unfortunately they were all out so I had to change my order to rib eye. However, it was good. Maybe next time, I will get there early enough for the prime rib. I’ve heard great things about it!!
We wanted a good steak & seafood restaurant and 5'O'clock Steakhouse had excellent reviews so we had to try it. We will definitely make reservations here again in the future. The steak was the absolute BEST and the crab legs were outstanding! The food, service and ambiance was fantastic! 5 O'clock is always right on time!
Service has gone down as they changed over the last two years-too busy and trying to get a younger crowd which takes away from ambience. The service was slow and forgotten about and it used to be you had one waitress that served you start to Finish and she was overwhelmed and other people served us and it was long delays-you can’t hear yourself think in there
Even if you have reservations, they seat you at the bar and eventually give you a menu and you must order at the bar. Then they take you to your table later.
Steaks were low quality/poor cut. Flavorful, but difficult to eat. Extremely expensive for a place that is as loud and confusing and disorganized as this.
If you want a classic steak house experience, this is the place. Food is fabulous, service is wonderful and ambiance is what a classic steak house should be. Special touches, like the fresh salad bowl, relish tray, and baked bread add to the yumminess of the dinner. And the bartender is a real craftsman with cocktails!
Totally disappointing. One steak had to be sent back because it was done medium well instead of medium rare - was a t-bone and not a porterhouse; the sirloin steak was tough and tasteless, and the bone-in ribeye had so much fat it was hard to eat. Way too much “sauce” on the meat - what is the point of touting an 1800 degree sear if it’s drowned in sauce and made soggy. Sorry to say we’ll be looking for a different steakhouse after all these years. Overpriced and mediocre quality. Our server, Catherine, was wonderful and pleasant.
The Five O'Clock Steakhouse is my primary place to take out of town guests to give them a sense of the Wisconsin Northwoods in an urban setting. The steaks are the absolute best in the area. The bar is full service with bartenders that can make virtually any drink that you can name. The service is impeccable and friendly. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for an exceptional meal in a casual setting. Of course it is fine if you want to dress more formally!
The 5 O’Clock Steakhouse, Formerly Coerpers 5 O’Clock Club (since 1948) has never disappointed in the 20 years I have been going there. It’s an old school supper club. If you know what that means you will be extremely satisfied. Stelio, the owner, will more than likely be on hand and the staff is great. The last time I was there I had to ask another staff for another round of drinks at our table but that’s the only time ever. Some of the BEST steaks and Prime Rib, PERIOD.
