My first french dinner experience. Now an escargot fan. Will definitely make my way here again. Everything was excellent.

Regretfully after many years of enjoying the hospitality at 5 corners we have to report the caliber of both the menu and the service has struggled to recover from the challenges of the past year, After several visits Intended to support one of our favorite...local spots, 5 corners is struggling to offer the level of quality and hospitality we’ve enjoyed over the years. We hope this is temporary and things will improve with time but our experience here over the past month is one that prompts me to report that despite our fervent efforts to support this establishment that their efforts are falling flat. We’ll not be strangers here but need to give Elizabeth and her team time to recover their footing lost over the past year. There are other restaurants locally more on top of their game. Check them out!More

High quality food in a beautiful space. Loved the sticky toffee pudding desert. Festive with white lights for the holidays.

My wife and I recently enjoyed a meal here. The service was great and the outside dining was handled well. I had the steak frites and they were fantastic. Tender meat and a large portion of fries.

This was my first time to Marblehead in over 40 years. I had a couple of evening hours to spare and looked for a high-quality restaurant that was taking social distancing seriously - I was delighted with my meal and experience. T5CK has a talented,...creative kitchen: the menu is fairly short but has a wide range of options. Staff were excellent - cleaning tables very carefully; helping each other seamlessly; managing both tables and curbside pickup efficiently. My waitress was very helpful, courses were delivered with good timing. Most important, the food was superb (I had the wedge salad and pesto pasta). Bravo for doing such a great job in these challenging times!More

The food is consistently wonderful here. We live in town and 5 Corners is our go-to place for an excellent meal. Barry Edelman knows what he is doing.

over priced breakfast menu with food that lightly burnt . Staff has not got enough sleep. can not speak for dinner experience .they. Should rethink the brunch or offer some cheap drinks keep them happy. Young Couple next to us said they have ordered the...Bloody Mary in the past and the one they got the day we were there was watered. Not happy and told staff. They gave them some tomato juice to add to their drink. Funny entertainment was goodMore

On recommendation from friends we dined here last night. Took advantage of the $1 oysters. So a dozen each followed by a selection of small dishes to complete our meal. Enjoyed a great bottle of red from an extensive list. The ambience was lovely, white...linen tablecloths. Service as expected excellent Would highly recommend.More

Finally broke out of my steak frites habit and ordered the sole which was amazing...one downside...I ate it all. Every. Last. Bite.

Whenever we travel and visit a restaurant we always say, how do you think this compared to 5CK! We've been going to 5CK for many many years. The food, service, and atmosphere are all top notch. Big +, oysters are $1 before 6PM, yum! There...isn't a bad dish on the menu, ever! I love the chicken liver pate, wedge salad (with homemade bacon), cavatelli, skate wing, 1/2 chicken breast, steak frites! For dessert, sticky pudding (seriously OMG), homemade gelato.More

We entertained our family members from California here today as a high point to their east coast trip and we were not disappointed. Our waitress was observant and anticipatory to our needs and we did not feel rushed. My wife and I had the steak...frites which were perfectly done to our satisfaction as were the dishes of our family members. They have $1 oysters till 6pm on Saturdays which packed the bar seats with patrons who can arrive before the restaurant opens for dinner at 5pm. The only negative that we can think of is it is a bit on the pricey side.More

I have owned over 50 successful restaurant, so I can be a little critical sometimes. This was a great experience. It was a great atmosphere, great service and the food was amazing. If I could say one thing, is that I felt like I was...being rushed. Maybe spread out your reservation times a little so that people can truly enjoy your restaurant.More

Our Innkeeper recommended 5 Corners Kitchen for a romantic dinner after our private wedding ceremony, and even made our reservation for us. It was truly lovely, and the staff had been told about our wedding and greeted us with champagne and gave us a quiet...table in a corner. They even arranged for the neighboring table to be left empty. We could see that the bar area was very popular. Wonderful food and ambience.More
