The food is ok. It is a clean place. The servers are nice, if you can get served, they're usually overcrowded and short staffed. Pros: Clean, Ok food Cons: Crowded, slow...


Not that great 2/4/2012

I took my husband and neice out for B-day dinner something different...but not what I expected the service was not good when we got there was a line we stood outside for about 15 min. and when able to stand in the door way for another 15 min. They really need to expand the restaurant. The service was not good the waitress didn't get my order right but when we finally got our food 20 min. after we ordered I did not want to wait. The burgers are ok but the size of a McDonald's burger with cheese in the middle.I wouldn't go back...just like someone said you feel like the waitresses are rushing you and not paying attention to you at all. more

Extremely disappointed and unsatisfied 8/13/2011

We decided to try out the 5-8 club after we had gone to Matts the previous week. I cannot begin to describe what a terrible experience we had. First, we decided to order the cheese curds as our appetizer and for the price of $7.00 you'd assume you'd be getting a fairly big amount. WRONG. We got about 12 cheese curds in our basket. Strike one. Next, as we were waiting for our burgers (the famous juicy lucy) our server came back once and only once to refill our drinks which sat empty most of the time. She seemed extremely rushed and all over the place. FINALLY our burgers arrived thought this was going to be awesome (wrong yet again) as I bit into my burger I realized it was still raw and pink inside. We had to flag down the waitress to get a new burger she then put it on a napkin took it and came back about a minute later with the same burger just with a new bun cheese all melted on the outside not even on the inside anymore which is the point of the burger. Also the burger was extremely dry... NOTHING JUICY ABOUT IT. Overall, our experience was misreable, the prices were too high, it's not worth your money, I'd never go back there again. Matts will have our business from now on. The home of the real ""Jucy Lucy"" is Matt's Bar in MPLS. more

To Go food not fresh and cold 5/6/2011

Too long of a line outside, so we decided to call and order it to go. It was in the evening during their busy time, around 7:00PM. We were told it would be 20 minutes. We came back in 20 minutes. Wanted to start eating the food right away out in the car. Being so busy, we expected the food to be HOT from the kitchen. It was far from it. Onion Rings tasted like they were made 1/2 an hour ago. Fries were the same way, both were cold. Sorry, but nothing like hot and fresh. Being so busy, I could not see how they could have such cold food. Juicy Lucy's were hot. But, not super hot like the cheese is suppose to be. That is why you have to be careful. Definitely did not have to worry about that. Maybe they cook their food way to early. Try to keep it hot until served. Then serve the crap to the To-Go orders, thinking it will be cold by the time they get home anyway. We ate it right away after we got outside. I will NEVER buy To-Go food from them again. They lost my respect on that one. Maybe I will visit them during less busy time, just to see how they treat customers who dine there. I have been to Matt's, though not to go experience. Smaller and busy, wait for seat. But, all of their food was right off the grill hot. Definitely had to be careful to eat their food. more

So yummy and quaint! 4/26/2011

The 5-8 Club is one of my favorite places to eat in Minneapolis! Whenever I have someone visit from out of town, this is one of the places we take them to eat while they are here. The juicy lucy is actually the only thing I've ever eaten at the 5-8 Club! It's so amazingly good! The parking can be a little tricky, it's not a huge lot, and it's widely popular, but worth any wait you may have. It has a small town feel! I would for sure give it a try to decide for yourself! more

Great Food, Terrible Service 3/21/2011

Everyone there was so rushed - I don't know if they were understaffed, or if that is how it always is. The waitresses smiled and said the usual formalities, but they were so rushed that it was just fake. No one came to ask us how our food was. I hate leaving less than a 15% tip, but this service deserved it. I would not come back, even though the Juicy Lucy was amazing. more

Terrible Service 7/5/2010

I was extremely excited to visit this place and try the juicy lucy, especially after I saw it on Man Vs. Food. We sat at the bar since it was too busy to find a table. The service was a complete joke. Took a while to get our order placed and waited for 50 minutes to get our food. The burger was good, but the fries were cold. The wait staff wasn't kind and seemed annoyed to be working. Won't go back again. Pros: Good Burger Cons: Bad Service more

Heaven!! 6/24/2010

This place is great! Great service but the place does fill up fast thanks to the Man V. Food visit two years ago. Their JL is heaven! Plus you have different cheese's to choose from. Plus they have a great menu of other items as well. Hope you like ur tap beer cold because it is! I will be back to this place for sure! more

Most amazing burger ever, like a little piece of heaven in my mouth! 2/6/2009

I have been wanting to go here forever and never did, till last Saturday. Was there when it opened, which I'm glad I was because this place gets full quick. I had just a basic cheeseburger and OMG - it was amazing! I can't wait to go back and try the garlic or pizza burger - YUMMY! And our server Katie was amazing and one of the best server's I've ever had, or at least in a long time :) I would recommend this to anyone. I can't wait to go back! Pros: cheap and good food, great service Cons: can get busy fast more

Cheap and good 1/29/2009

Good burger, really good onion rings (i dip in ranch). The juicy lucy is not nearly as good as the Nook, in St. Paul, but it's good, none-the-less!! I know there is also on in Maplehood and Champlain also. more

Love the amosphere 8/20/2008

My boyfriend and I decided to try the two places i town know for JUICY LUCY's and I was truly disappointed in the 5-8 Club's. It might be great to some customers. But what I was disappointed with was the burger was soooo dry!! BUt I loved that yo can choose different cheeses in the Juicy Lucy. Thats a great thing!!!! gotta love pepperjack!!! I love the fact that our bill was not even $20!!!! It was great!!! I liked it for its variety but the burger was kind of dry!!! A juuicy lucy dry??? Pros: Great Variety Cons: DRY JUICY LUCY more

Great food 6/14/2008

Went to the 5-8 yesterday, they had one of the best burgers I've ever had. Service was great as was the patio. On the back of the menu there's a story about the history of the restaurant/bar which was very cool. The prices are excellent and it is also kid friendly. I will be frequenting this fine establishment much more in the future. Yum Yum!!! Pros: Burgers, friendly staff more

great food!!!!! BAD service!! 3/19/2008

I love going to the 5 8. We have gone there sense we were kids:) I SO wish that they would do something about the grumpy wait staff that has worked there to long. We did however go in a month ago and saw a couple new FRIENDLY faces:) You would not want to cast new peeps away with rude staff. I am glad to see the change:) Pros: FOOD Cons: some service more

Great Juicy Lucys 3/13/2008

They have very good Juicy Lucy's which are second only to Matt's Bar. The buffalo popcorn chicken with bleu cheese is a great appetizer to start with and the fries are very good as well. This is a great dive bar with a very interesting history in bootlegging. I've had great service every time I've been there. I've had to wait a few times to be seated during supper but not too long. Pros: Great food, good service, parking lot more

Great Food @ Great Prices 9/23/2007

Great food at great prices!!! Try the Walleye Fingers they are great! My husband and I have always had good service when we went. It is always crowded because the food is just that good! Pros: Great food at great prices! Cons: Parking. more

Good Eats 10/4/2006

Highly recommended especially if your wife is prego and craving a Juicy lucy!! Not too many places a couple can go and eat for $25.. great burgers and apps. more

The 5-8 is Top Notch 8/2/2006

I love the 5-8. My family loves the 5-8, and all of my friends love the 5-8. Classic american food that tastes so good. After your first time, you will crave the 5-8. All of the apps are wonderful. The juicy lucy is better than Matt's because you have a choice of about 4 different cheese. It can definately get busy, so you may have to wait, but it does help in the summer when the patio is open. Please don't be that guy who walks past the line of people to look for a table. If you see a line, make your way to the end. Don't worry it won't take to long, and will be worth the wait. Pros: The food, service, prices Cons: everyone wants to go to the 5-8 more

It was Great! 5/27/2006

Our Trip to the 5-8 club (cedar at hwy 62) was a great experience! It reminded me of my small farm town days- Great home cooking type of food with very friendly and good service. The juicy-lucy burger with fried onion was super! so were are sides- great atmosphere, even the other patrons were friendly. The bathrooms were about as clean as I have ever seen. We are sure we will be going back again and again! Pros: food quality & price, friendly atmosphere, clean bathrooms Cons: location & access more
