The food here is good quality, and tasted good, but isn't very exciting (dishes you could get anywhere). Not The drinks are great. The menu is limited, so it is easy to pick. We also had great service when we came.

We love the food, basic but good. The DIY bloody mary bar is great. The only downside is be prepared to wait!! The staff is friendly and the service very good considering the crowds.

I always visit Five when in town to visit my daughter. Sunday evening was my only unpleasant experience at a terrific restaurant. There were many open tables, yet our party of 8 had to wait an hour to be seated. It's my hope they work on proper staffing, as the rest of the restaurant is great fun and good food.... More

This is a really nice upscale restaurant in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The menu is limited - thus the name Five but the quality of the food is always spot on. We have eaten there twice and each time have really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Last weekend we went on the Friday before a home football game at The University of... More

There's no doubting the quality of the food is great, some of the best "pub" fare out there. Great cocktails and beers also, and definitely a magnet for the "in" crowd in Tuscaloosa. Only drawback is that the concept is limiting for foodies, only 5 items to choose from. Oh well, that's the theme though!

Limited menu, but what they offer is great. A little too dark and a little too loud for our party. Probably appeals most to the younger, pre-hearing aid crowd. Give it a try.

Love the burgers here. I've also had the fish Special, and while it was very good, I immediately regretted not getting the burger. The bacon relish is amazing.

Ate here the last night we were in Tuscaloosa. We had had poor to well below average dining experiences the entire week. The service was exceptional, the southern comfort food amazing - from the burgers to chicken and fries - yummy!! And it didn't break the bank. Good bloody Mary's too!

Celebrated our Anniversary on a Thursday night- got there around 5:45, the crowd did not begin to come in till 6:15 and on. We had a great meal with great service. Ribeye was done well and good size, panne chicken was excellent-- salad was very fresh with berries-- asked for mixed vegetables versus the mashed potatoes, no problem- were very... More
