We have been here several times but not recently. Service is always great but food was somewhat disappointing. First calamari was cold but the second round was perfect! My wife’s dinner was perfect, done to perfection. My strip steak was done perfect , however, the steak was tough, grisly and chewy beyond! I would have sent it back if I hadn’t sent the calamari back. Will probably try again at some point.

Have wanted to go to this place for years. Should have continued waiting. The supper club vibe was fun and the bar is great but the food was well below average.They char the steaks in some house basting but this is done to cover up the mediocre quality of the meat. It’s mid level supermarket meat at best. The sides were not memorable. The only good part was our excellent waiter. One and done for this place.

Five O'Clock is very well prepared to keep patrons safe during the pandemic.
They have barriers between patrons in the bar area and in the dining room.
The staff are wearing masks and items like the salad and relish tray come covered in plastic.
Our waitress Joanie was excellent. All around a great experience.

Not what it used to be. Very disappointed. If you want a steak cooked this way, go to Milwaukee Steakhouse. They do it right. I’m very disappointed and won’t be back.

As a native Milwaukeean, I have had the pleasure of eating at the Five O' Clock Club many times, still however the majority of those times were still when it was called Coerper's Five O' Clock Supper Club. The current owners have maintained and expanded the restaurant to reflect the times adding a jazz club and using the web to attract more customers. I appreciated the Covid-19 precautions which were taken to keep me and my family safe while we ate. Here's the only knock I have. Get rid of the A la Carte baked potato and or steak fries. The potato choice used to be a part of the entree, along with the bread, cru d'ete, mushrooms and salad. Six dollars for a potato is just irritating. It's equal to twenty pounds of russets at the store for God's sake. If I eat at the Five O' Clock Club I already know I'm dropping a wad of dough, don't rub it in by charging me for some fries that used to be free. Otherwise, I just love eating there.

The quintessential steakhouse. I've been to all of the top steakhouses in town, and this is the best. I've never been disappointed going here, and any guests I take are always impressed. It's not a modern place, but they've been doing exactly what they do best for years, and I would have it no other way.

Overall this place is a bit overpriced and quality is not there. When I order a steak I expect it to be hot it was warm at best took the staff 20 minutes to check back my that time my guest was done easting. Not at all a place I would return I heard amazing things but it was a let down.

The appetizers and cocktails were amazing. My steak was poorly prepared with an inch of char. The entire steak was tough and bitter. Our “friendly” waitress was completely rude after I said I didn’t love it and told me they’re known for their char and I should have ordered it without. 20 minutes go by and I’m not eating the steak so I’ve been eating half of my husbands filet which was absolutely delicious when a manager comes by and says the steak is absolutely over char’d and offered a different steak. Remember at this point I had been sitting for 20 minutes so I had eaten more garlic bread, potatoes and my husbands steak- so now I’m not even hungry. So he said he would take care of it on the bill.
The waitress comes by and rudely says they took $22 off the bill. $22 of a $58 steak that I could not eat and that the manager said was not cooked properly.
I’m not one to complain or expect anything for free but this is absurd to me.
They should have come to the table quickly and gotten me a different steak which I would’ve happily paid for or just taken it completely off the bill after they left me sitting with a poorly cooked inedible steak.
The waitress’s shift of attitude was completely disgusting. She was rude and unfriendly.
We were celebrating a special occasion and this dinner was not up to par at all.

My first visit to Five O'Clock Steakhouse was memorable. When entering the Steakhouse we were greeted by friendly staff that offered several seating arrangements. We were directed to the bar area until a service person came and took our order and within five minutes we were seated at our table. The service and the food was top notched. I had the chops and my wife had the Rib-eye, they both were cooked to perfection. We will definetly be going back soon.Five bright stars.

5 o’clock is our favorite steak restaurant in Milwaukee. Food and service was outstanding, as usual! We opted to sit outside on their new dining patio, a great option for social distancing.

Know before you go: While the outdoor courtyard setting is very attractive, the noise from the overhead HVAC unit was constant, and loud enough to impact our conversations. If you’re looking for intimacy, opt inside.

Food was excellent, perfectly prepared steaks. Service was quick and efficient. Managers checked in frequently and even COVID precautions didn't take away from our dining experience. Completely worth the money for a date night or celebration. Great overall and will return next time we're in the area.
