Home roasted chicken and ribs, mashed potatoes, flavorful, unique coleslaw. Appy hour until 5pm. Great friendly staff and a rustic atmosphere. Restaurant and pub are separated so you can bring the family or not.

This place looks like a bar&grill but rises above due to menu selections, even the standards (pizza, ribs etc) are prepared in a different way or use unique ingredients. Atmosphere is open and is great for large groups. It has a favoured local reputation. Several local brews on tap including the wonderful Phillips Chocolate Porter. Service was quick, specials were...

If you are looking to catch the game and drink a pint or take your special person out on a date 5th Street Bar and Grill is the perfect place. Located close to Hillside and Mayfair mall and the Save on Foods Center, 5th Street is perfect for grabbing some good after you shop or before a concert.

It was good but not great! I liked the atmosphere, the decor, etc. The food was really good but nothing really set it apart from other pub/burger/pizza type places in my mind. Very filling, fair prices for what you get which is great! Other similar restaurants in town are a bit of a bust on the pricing. Here, you get... More

We really liked this place! The ambiance, the service and the food. The restaurant serves up wood-fire rotisserie. You definitely get that wood-fire smokey smell when you walk in. We had drinks before dinner. The waitress was so friendly and helpful. We ordered the Vancouver St Fish and Chips with beer-battered fresh icelandic cod, fresh-cut fries, apple fennel slaw, tartar...

A just off downtown pub with a decent pub menu selection, fair pricing, wonderful service, and an enjoyable, casual ambiance. The pizza, wings, pasta and chicken tenders were all done quite well. Only knock we had was that of the four meals, the salmon sandwich was slightly over done. The place was busy but not packed. Our friends who live... More

We dropped by for lunch in the autumn and the dining room was festively decorated with pumpkins and fun, scary stuff. This is a comfortable restaurant that is family-friendly, but also great for casual business lunches, couples or large groups. Pub on other side. My order of West Coast mussels was perfect -- not one mussel was undercooked in my... More

Recently went for late lunch with a buddy. Had a couple pints along with the lemon pepper wings. Decent location. Nicely finished premises that give it the feel of an authentic English or Irish pub. Service was excellent-- friendly, courteous, prompt and efficient. Good looking menu with lots of options. Wings were outstanding and portion was good, at least a... More

I've come to the Fifth Street 3 times so far. The first time I had the four cheese pizza (the one with pears/grapes on it) and the other two times I have ordered the Fifth Street Burger with poutine. WOW! All of those dishes have been so delicious. I probably won't order anything else on future visits because those dishes... More

We were there for our retired group Christmas lunch. The Beet salad and fish tacos were very popular, fish and chips, and buffalo burgers were the hit of the table of 18. A good selection of on tap beers and many wines and ciders as well.
