FIVE is a bar and restaurant in Mobile, Birmingham, and Tuscaloosa, and a few other cities in Georgia and Tennessee. They serve lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch in a stylish, but casual setting. The food is just as unique as the setup, as they put their own flair on traditional favorites.
The building in Mobile, Alabama had a vintage look with bronze chandeliers covering the ceiling and a wild mix of art lining the walls. The bar was the obvious focus of FIVE since the area took up a significant amount of space and was the main objective on the menu. It was convenient to see the massive chalkboard showing drinks, entrees, specials, and promoting their Sunday brunch.
It wasn’t a long wait for seating, and reservations weren’t necessary. Our waitress had a very bubbly personality and was patient with us taking our time to make our selections. Even as it approached the end of the night, she was consistent with making sure we had everything we needed.
Food and Drink
Our beverage of choice was a strawberry lemonade made with Tito’s, Sprite, and simple syrup. It was a winner and the real strawberries were a nice touch.
The cheeseburger had a thick patty with bacon relish, American cheese, and hand-cut fries that surrounded both sides of the burger. The plate also came with a side of FIVE sauce and ketchup. This was one of the best burgers in Mobile.
The fish tacos were grilled grouper topped with slaw and jalapeño tartar sauce. A bed of ginger rice was tucked between the two fish tacos. The ginger made an ordinary rice a very flavorful dish. The house salad on the side that’s normally made with seasonal fruit included with mixed greens, grapes, strawberries, and goat cheese and white balsamic vinaigrette.
No fortune cookies here…
FIVE had their own way of sending us off with a nice gesture, and with such a different take on their Bar and dining experience, we wouldn’t expect anything less. The waitress left us cookies on the table as she thanked us for dining with them.
