Description: "Five Napkin Burger" is our homage to the American Bar and Grill. “Five Napkin” combines elements from such diverse influences as the steak house, the coffee shop, the local tavern, and the fern bars of the 70’s and 80’s. An in depth examination, of these disparate concepts finds one powerful unifying: the burger. The “Five Napkin Burger,” a messy 10oz gourmet burger, will indeed take center stage on the menu, alongside a supporting cast of charbroiled meat, poultry, and fish, entrée salads, unique side dishes and sushi hand rolls. Our beverage program consisting of classic and modern cocktails, frozen drinks, ice cream shakes, American wines, and an exhaustive collection of spirits and beers is the perfect complement to this cuisine.

Take a simple product and do it well, that is what 5 Napkins is all about. They were crowded, we sat a a table in the bar section and received prompt efficient service. the burger was everything they said it would be, juicy--and cooked medium rare , they way we requested. Wine was a good size glass for the price.

Great burgers, wings and shakes. Was able to dine here on a slow, Sunday evening and on a crowded, Saturday evening. I prefer the smaller crowd on Sunday, but the food quality and service held up well on Saturday.

Will keep this short and sweet...undercooked orders, long waits and indifferent service. AVOID at all costs. This is the 1st one circle I have ever rated but trust me, they earned it.

I had great expectations for this restaurant based on their signage. (Yeah, I know...). The place was nicely appointed and well above the decor of a typical burger joint. Service was great. There is a full service bar if that is what you are looking for. Burgers were nothing special. I like mine medium rare, my friend well down. They... More

Located at the Prudential Center shopping are! A great place for lunch before you embark on you Duck Tour. 5 Napkin Burger certainly describes the burgers well! Good food and exotic ice teas. For the kids....you get to make your root beer float at the table!

We waited 10 minutes at our table, while staff strolled by. Finally after my hungry son kept complaining he was hungry we decided to leave. Pointless

The burgers were very good, however their milk shakes were very small and very expensive. My nephew needed 2 to quench his thirst.

A little much for a burger joint. I have had better and worse. Would not be my first choice next time, but would not say no if someone suggested it. I would not bring children. Although it is ok, it seems like at times it is more of an adult crowd. Service was good.
