....However, portions a tad small for the portion size. We had 3 mixed drinks, a incredibly tasty appetizer (pimento cheese topped with bacon marmalade and house made crackers - wow!), and then 2 of had the roasted flounder on grits and 1 had the pork. Pork had a little too much fat, but had very good flavor. Attentive service in... More

Ever since I moved to Athens five years ago I've heard about the famous Five and Ten. I finally made it there last night for a Christmas party and it was a great dining experience from start to finish. We had a party of about 11 or 12 people, and coming from someone with experience in food service, my hat... More

So glad we picked the Five & Ten for our only meal during a night's stay in Athens. Very innovative cocktails using handmade bitters. A mature wine list from which we picked a very unusual delicious wine from Sicily. Octopus appetizer in a tonkotsu broth was pure magic- unbelievably good. My wife's fish was fresh and cooked to perfection. My... More

The pretentious food is only surpassed by the pretentious clientele that feel compelled to brag about small portions and not very tasty food. The service that we experienced was barely acceptable and we paid more than the food was worth. This restaurant has been pulling this deception for quite a while. I just do not understand the excellent reports. We... More

UGA friend and recent grad strongly recommended Five & Ten and we couldn't be more pleased. Our 15th annual college football trip has us here for Auburn at Georgia. And as we age, GREAT FOOD (over burgers in a basket) has become a priority. The food, service (John rocks) and atmosphere is classic Deep South. Comfort, with class and appropriate... More

We have been going to 5&10 for about 8 years. In the past we have been blown away by the wonderful food and service. I like the new location, but I liked the old one too. We have had experiences at 5&10 that have blown our mind. The flavor and the ingredients have always been so so good. Sometimes my... More

Everyone raves about this restaurant, but I've eaten here at least five times in the last year and have yet to enjoy the meal. Tonight was a celery root appetizer that was awful, and then a gnocchi entree that was full of something that I could not chew and had to leave at the side of the plate. The entree... More

I had dinner here with three friends. I ordered the Frogmore stew which was extremely salty and this comes from someone who loves salt. The consistency of the liquid was very watery like a thin soup, the potatoes tasted like plain potatoes boiled in water, and there were segments of roasted corn on the cob in the bowl. How are...

Very popular place with comfortable surroundings. Lively bar. Somewhat eclectic menu with lots of local, fresh ingredients. Outstanding service with very knowledgeable wait staff. Great wine list and absolutely wonderful oysters.
