Southern Elegance

Has a elegant Southern feel. Loved the Roast Chicken Consomme and the buttered potato puree. Save some room for dessert the pies are a real highlight. Really good hosts. My wife loved the shrimp.

Brunch for four. Ordered Shrimp and Grits, Hot cakes, and 5&10 Benedict. Shrimp and Grits -- perfectly cooked shrimp with creamy grits and a sauce that excellent. Hot Cakes -- good but nothing spectacular. Benedict -- tasty sausage but everything else was ordinary. Our expectations might have been a little higher since this is a Hugh Acheson establishment. While food... More

Even with dessert we left there hungry. When you are paying $30+ in Athens for dinner per plate that is ridiculous. I would not recommend - there... More

Went for birthday. Scallops raw and oversalted. Mushroom vegetarian dish so so. Redfish well cooked and oversalted. Service very good. Oysters warm even on bed ice.

5 & 10 is outstanding. Why it is not in the top 5 in the rankings, I really do not understand. It's elegant, fresh, thoughtful, and delicious. The service is always excellent and the new location has great parking.

Five & Ten is an awesome restaurant. I loved the food her. It's a small place and can be a little tight. But, the food is worth it. I highly recommend for a date night.

The menu is very interesting with unique selections and combinations. Definitely one of the top restaurants in Athens. Very nice drink menu as well. If you are from Atlanta, this is a Buckhead dining experience in Athens.
