Kind-of, sort-of, quasi, fusion. Needs to make up its mind about what it wants to be when it grows up!! A little "full of itself"!!

This is an interesting place. Good decor and location. I reviewed a dozen or so restaurants and even did walk and drive byes before choosing this place. Trip advisor helped weed out other places. As I must read the entire menu before ordering I found this short menu a good change. Quality, not quantity comes to mind. I chose the Gyoza appetizer (pork dumplings), and bone in pork chop which came with great sides. I was pleased with everything including the cocktails.

This was my 2nd time to visit 5 - what a great choice! The premise is that you have a choice between any 5 appetizers, entrees, beers, wines, etc. plus, they have a daily special. We had stuffed fried green olives to start - delicious! I had jalapeño shrimp in a white sauce- plum & juicy. The setting is with multiple old chandeliers and a beautiful large antique back bar. Service was excellent despite the fact the place was packed! Highly recommend!

I think this is one of the best places too go while in Tuscaloosa. Very curt and to the point menu, great table service, and good bar service. Unique menu offers about 5 appetizers, 5 dinner choices. Great wine selections. Crowded most nights and lively atmosphere. Beautiful people for sure. Plenty of parking in the large lot across the street. Sometimes they have live bands.
