    The staff is absolutely amazing! Everyone was super friendly and cheerful. You rarely see this nowadays. I haven't been here in over 15 years. It's still the same. Quality of food was on point. I do enjoy the relish tray and salad before dinner. Bread prior was also warm and delicious. We started with the baked French onion and shrimp cocktail for apps, then we had the 8oz filet and Porterhouse along with green beans almondine and asparagus. We finished with the creme brulee YUM! (our own creme brulee, cause I don't share my creme brulee lol)Nothing disappointed. For cocktails, I tried the starburst martini and pear press, excellent, refreshing and not boozy tasting, I definitely recommend.

    I was really looking forward to “Milwaukee’s Best Steakhouse,” but was sadly unimpressed. The staff was wonderful—everyone welcomed us as we walked to our table, and everyone thanked us on the way out. Our server got our order right, was timely, and checked in with us during our meal. The hostess checked in with us during our meal. The valet was great, too. The meal itself just wasn’t phenomenal. I’ll admit I’m a steak snob, so it may be harder to impress me than most. I just found the steak to be chewy instead of buttery, and lacking great flavor. Quite the disappointment for a highly anticipated meal. The bread and butter were disappointing, too! (Not that those hold much value, but the little details make a good meal better.) They salad was okay, as was the relish tray. The Parmesan peppercorn dressing was great, though! And the drinks from the bar were perfect! My husband said it was possibly the best Old Fashioned he’s ever had. Unfortunately, we left feeling like we’re glad we finally tried it, but probably won’t return.

    Always enjoy the experience at the 5 O Clock! From starting in the bar, to ordering the food in the bar, then being taken to our table, our waiter was fantastic and the steaks were out of the world. I highly recommend the bone in tenderloin. Had Green Beans, Fries and asparagus for sides and of course Tiramisu to cap it all off. We will be back!

    Amazing and delicious as always! The manager, or whom I assume to be the manager, always takes the time to walk around and make sure everything is to everyone’s liking. Waitresses are very attentive and they even have servers that wrap up your food once you’re down which is always a plus!

    My wife and I ordered the same steak, the ribeye, both medium. But both cuts were very different. One was prepared more of medium well and slightly dry. The other was cooked perfectly but had a lot more fat than the other. Both tasted great and the rest of the meal was excellent. Service was outstanding especially for Valentine's Day . Still our steakhouse of choice.

    We LOVE LOVE this steakhouse!! We’ve been many times and only ever get steak, cuz it’s that good! My only suggestion is that they PLEASE cook to order. The will not cook a steak to medium well; says it on menu. Even a medium cooked steak is too pink for my ideal liking. I always get some push back when I request it. I still eat it but wish they’d cook it to customers request as we’re paying lots of money there.

    Great place for the best steaks in town - or anywhere. Grab a cocktail at the bar, a server will take your food order and in a few minutes you are directed to your completely set-up table for your first course. A real treat.

    We were there celebrating my daughter’s 18th birthday and had a wonderful meal. Everything was delicious. Not sure why we weren’t offered more bread when another table was? And we did order three salad dressings and only received two but after asking for it, she did bring it out. Our waitress also brought out a birthday slice of key lime pie for her. The cheesecake was Yummolicious!

    We are from Chicago and wanted to dine at Five O’clock because my husband grew up in Milwaukee and dined there as a child with his dad when it was Coerpers. So I set up dinner reservation since we were going to be in Wisconsin for a comedy show. I’ll be honest the neighborhood that the restaurant is in, I would NOT describe as nice. Yes that is subjective but idk what other word to use.. with that being said. Five o’clock is surely a diamond in the rough. It gives a high quality food restaurant and w a neighborhood cozy casual vibe. We dressed up for this since we considered our outing special occasion but I’m glad we did. This is dressy/business casual/ casual dress code. The restaurant welcomes all with open arms. The service was excellent. EVERYone was friendly and everyone literally greeted us as we were escorted to our table that was only 20 feet away. A manager came to the table and asked how everything was during our meal which is such a personal intimate touch to an old school restaurant. He was professional and kind. Our server Courtney was so attentive and her smile lit up our dinner and the room. I was very impressed. Our food came out relatively quickly and tasted so good. The best creamed spinach I’ve ever had. My filet was so perfectly cooked at medium rare. The outside was charred but when I cut into it it was soft and beautifully red inside. Stuffed mushrooms were divine. I would prefer no thin layer over the stuffed mushrooms but hey. We’re in Wisconsin lol. The mushrooms and au jus for my filet were out of this world. My husbands ribeye Oscar Style was excellent. He couldn’t stop raving with every bite. Valet gentlemen were exactly that. Gentlemen. Our specific valet was so kind and classy. Opened the door for me. And brought us our truck with care. You could tell he really wanted to care for us. I indulged in a glass of Malbec which was good. We didn’t have any other alcoholic drinks so I can review more on that. Highly recommend this place.

    This throwback restaurant some call is supper club. It has that feel but seriously, it's a steakhouse! often passed over is its fabulous mixologist at the front end where you check in and have a drink before sitting down. Can make some of the most fabulous cocktails around our go to o is their classic cosmopolitan ! the amount of old fashiones served here. I think definitely gives you that Wisconsin vibe for this classic old timer drink! they pre manufactured these old fashiones hundreds at a time as in the garnish fruit and bitters,and sugar prior to alcohol and ice. Definitely a go-to for the local customers! I had the bone in in ribeye the Mrs. Had the shrimp scampi both for fabulous the salad plate the veggies tray, the sauteed mushrooms the service from our waitress absolutely fabulous as usual. We totally enjoyed ourselves and definitely will return. No complaints on food service or the drinks!

    My wife and I have been coming here for 25 plus years. We have eaten at most of the steakhouses in the Milwaukee area. Five O’Clock Steakhouse is by far our Favorite. The staff and service are excellent. Their steaks and how they are cooked are simply the best. Brought friends from out of town last night. We took them here years ago and they said they wanted to go again because the steaks were the best they ever had.

    It is always appreciated when you are welcomed back. I have eaten here and it predecessor for 50 plus years , Food is excellent, they know how to grill ribeye “Pittsburg Style” which is charred on the outside and rare inside. Service, as always, was super. The place has not changed except for a few upgrades in the time I have visited

    Best steakhouse in Milwaukee. It's old school supper club. Great steaks and sides. Service is a bit cold because they're hustling so much. Relish tray is weak for a supper club. Gets loud like an old supper club. My favorite in the Milwaukee area!

    Table service was very slow, we were there for a total of 3 hours and we were just 3 people. My filet was average and a bit chewy, didn't melt in mouth as I had expected. Pre- pandemic times this had been a good experience, but this time was not good especially for the amount of $ we paid.
