Was taken here by friends while visiting Wisconsin. A very popular spot but by arriving before 5:00 on a Friday were were able to get a table for 7. Great variety of fish (cod, perch, bluegill, baked cod, and other seafood). Portions were huge and fish done very well. Plain rye bread and cole slaw already on the table. Fries standard. The location, service and supper club atmosphere were great - but the food a bit on the unimaginative side - especially the sides. Overall a good experience and worth a visit. The comments on the checking in process are on the mark - different and not easy to figure out! Made for the locals I guess - LOL!

1952 to be exact!!! The ownership has been in the family and it has always been a family atmosphere. The best fish and chicken fries anywhere! Visit every time I come back to Wisconsin and it never disappoints!

We ordered an 5o'C club Sandwich and a burger and something else. This place is very good in price, taste, service, outdoor seat and everything.

I probably go to the 5 O'clock Club 1-2 times a month, usually for Friday fish fry. This is the typical old-fashioned Wisconsin supper club. I enjoy it as much, or more, for the atmosphere as for the food. They have a deck that is a nice place to have a cocktail or appetizer in the summer months. The 5 O'clock Club is on a hill overlooking the lake, but you'll have to look through the heavy tree foliage to see it.

First time guests will be thrown by the unusual check-in procedure, as there is no hostess station in the traditional sense. You have to enter the place and walk deep into the restaurant (working through a crowd on a Friday night) to the far end of the bar where they will check you in.


When seated on a Friday, cole slaw, bread, and tartar sauce will already be waiting at your table. Cocktails are good and the bar staff is efficient and friendly. I would encourage you to try their cheese plate appetizer. You can choose the cheese (or cheeses) you want. I prefer the havarti and some cheddar, but there are several other options. It comes with some nuts, fruits, crisp breadsticks,and olives. I generally get the broiled cod but the deep fried is good, too. Fish fry is served with crinkle-cut (I assume frozen) fries.
