Under the ever-watchful eye of Managing Partner Stelio Kalkounos, the iconic Five O’Clock Steakhouse continues to earn national recognition.

THE FIVE O’CLOCK STEAKHOUSE EMBODIES THE TRUE SUPPER CLUB EXPERIENCE

A Supper Club refers to a specific dining style in which the guest begins with a cocktail at the bar, where they are then greeted by a host who takes their order. Moving to the dining room, the table is set with salad, warm bread and a relish tray complete with olives, pickles and hot peppers. The guest entertains their palate with salad and relishes while their sumptuous meal is prepared in the kitchen.

There are really no words to describe how perfect of a restaurant this is. The steak alone is worth traveling cross country for. But the experience you get as a whole from the decor, excellent service, and perfectly timed meal, makes for a dining event you won’t forget!
