About

On the surface, there are myriad options for diners these days. At FIVE we make it a bit easier. We have five dinners, five white wines, and five red wines. We have a bar stocked with everything you need and nothing more. Of course, when you only have five dinners, they had better be good – and ours are. We source our products locally. Everything we prepare is made from scratch. We offer great value and service in a hipped up atmosphere. There are many complications in life - dining out shouldn’t be one of them. We invite you to our restaurant so that you can see what a difference a commitment to simplicity, good food, and stellar service can have when dining out.

Who would have thought a baked avocado could be so delicious! If you go to Five, be sure to order this appetizer. Each entree was similarly amazing, with a cheeseburger accompanied by a salad and fries, and a flavorful fish dish. Service from Mallory was efficient, friendly and casual. Pricing is reasonable. I wish we had room for dessert!

Super dead on a Sunday evening. Expected to be able to get one fish dish on the list of 5. But fried shrimp was only choice.

We had a great dinner there with excellent service. The only thing we could comment on is that it was freezing in the restaurant. Everyone had jackets on. Not sure why it was so cold. ??

It’s disappointing that there isn’t a single vegetarian option. I sent an email days ago asking about a vegetarian meal for one of the member’s of our group and never received a reply. So we kept our reservation on the assumption that there would be 1 thing we could order. But no. I even asked the server if our vegetarian diner could have something prepared. The server said that “we used to have a veggie burger. We don’t have it anymore. I could go see if there’s one still in the freezer.” Um. No thanks. We won’t be back, and we will definitely let the vegetarian and vegan groups on social media know to avoid this place.

I think you could rename the restaurant Four Bar on this trip. You only have five entrees and you run out of one of them? In addition, the one desert they have was not available. I am not sure how you can have such a limited menu and still not have items available. The food they did have was overall good and fairly priced.

It was a date night with another couple. At first we were sat at a high top even though we requested a standard table. That was eventually fixed and the service began. It was a little slow on the service and while they were busy, it seemed they may have been one server short. Either way, our waiter was very nice and the food was delicious. The catch of the day was perfectly prepared and the shrimp appetizer was to die for! The drinks were good too and we were extremely happy overall.

Well... we got there 10 minutes prior to our reservation and in time to get a drink during happy hour. We asked our server if we could order a drink before happy hour ended and she told us we would need to order it from the bar. She explained it's to help their bartenders out. We had no issue with that except when we got to the bar the bartender shouted at us from the other end of the bar that if we had a table we needed to order regular priced drinks from our table. Happy hour was only for those sitting at the bar. I explained our server had told us to go to the bar and she said "Sorry bout it".
We all ordered drinks from our table and the server came back to the table to let us know they were out of one of the beers, out of sprite for a mixed drink and they were out of beer mugs. It was 6 pm on Saturday night, how are you out of all this? Needless to say things did not start off well. There were six people in our party and we each ordered something different. In my opinion, if you have 6 menu items you should be really good at them. The food was just average & the bartender was rude.

We loved our experience at 5! Great food, great atmosphere. It was a little loud inside so we sat outside, which was nice and quiet.
Great night date night spot! We will be going back!

Overall not impressed. With only 5 things on the menu you would think they do them extremely well - not the case. We were one of only a few patrons at the time we came in and waited 7 + minutes for anyway to come over to our table to take our drink order after passing us and staring at us Milton

This was a return trip for Girl’s Night Out and it did not disappoint. The food was fabulous and the service was awesome. It was a Tuesday evening so the crowd was minimized and we were able to fellowship longer without feeling like we were hogging the table! The White Chocolate Bread Pudding is always a delicious way to end the meal!!
