We stopped at the 5-8 on Saturday, late in the afternoon. We both wanted some broasted chicken. The chicken was very good as always and our son had the roadhouse burger. Both dinners where really good. And the cold slaw is always good.

We went to the 5-8 Tavern & Grill based on the 4 circle rating already in TripAdvisor. We weren't disappointed. They have a great menu with lots of variety. Most of us had some version of the Juicy Lucy and were quite satisfied. There's a great variety in beers available - from brands you know to IPA's you may have... More

You can't go wrong with a juicy lucy and cheese curds. Fried pickles are very good as well. Nice spot to take the family for lunch.

First Friday of Lent and we sought out a fish fry at the 5-8 club. This was our first time in this establishment. The place was totally packed and we had to wait 30-40 minutes to be seated. The wait was worth it. We each ordered the AYCE fish fry. Arrived quickly and on the plate were 5 or 6... More

Finally got to try a Juicy Lucy and choose the 5-8 Tavern & Grill. We loved the look and atmosphere upon walking in as it looked like a little neighborhood bar and restaurant with a somewhat small bar area and booths and tables. It appeared to have at lease one more dining room but we didn't explore. We also loved... More

We moved nearby about 3 years ago. After a couple try's we couldn't do all the grease and calories. It's always packed though!

We were taking in the fall colors on cycles and the local Harley dealer recommended 5-8. We never heard of the Juicy Lucy in our area so until I read the current reviews, I didn't know that this was had a cult following. The outside looks like a tired supper club. The inside was much better, newer looking, a cross... More

Went here for a business lunch. I was expecting a knock out burger. I ordered the item which made them famous. The Juicy Lucy. I wasn't impressed, the burger was cooked fine, but I have better Juicy Lucy's elsewhere. As for the fries... they too were just ok

Stopped in a Saturday night before a show downtown. I had the Basket of Sunnies, while my 2 companions both had burgers. We all loved what we had! The service was good, the price was reasonable, and the food was great.
