We live in Atlanta but visit Athens from time to time, and have long made a habit of catching Sunday brunch at Five & Ten. Hitherto it has always been a wonderful experience, so our most recent visit may have been an outlier. Still, it was bad enough to merit reporting. The restaurant had recently relocated, which we not called... More

We chose to celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary at Five & Ten and it turned out to be an inspired selection. There were 2 Prie Fixe offerings and we each tried one. From thr bread right on through each course, it was one delight after another with excellent wine pairings. My "bride" had Butternut Squash soup garnished with spiced pecans,... More

My wife and I had dinner at Five & Ten for the third time, and the first time in their new location in a restored 19th century house on Milledge Ave. The atmosphere is far better that before, and the wonderful and unique dishes remain some of the best in the state of Georgia. My wife had the pasta with... More

When friends come to town this is the restaurant I would recommend. Excellent food, drink menu and service. A wonderful dining experience. Usually we go for special occasions but would like to dine here more frequently. Would be a wonderful dining experience in any city. We are lucky to have Hugh Acheson here in Athens, GA.

This was our first time in the new location! Hadn't realized it moved until we showed up at the old location while visiting our son at UGA. New location is wonderful. Brunch was great---they need to update their website for the times however, we showed up prior to opening due but hung around and got seated right upon opening. Food... More

Server was great until party of six arrived, and then two others took over for her. Salmon was incredibly boring. Raw blue point oysters were outstanding but what does it take to prepare an oyster? Sat outside on ftont porch which was great. As a culinary instructor, I was so excited about this and left 5&10 with a bad taste... More

The food is consistently delicious. There are always unique and adventurous options as well as something comforting and familiar. The staff is always polite and professional. The new building has more parking than before. They make their own ice creams (lots of flavors) and they are delicious! Beer, wine and cocktail selections are awesome. Expensive but totally worth it.
