Brooklyn >Food & Dining > Five Spot Soul Food Restaurant
“The crowd here is friendly and absolutly recommand this place if your looking to meet some fun people.”
“The cake slices were huge, but we didn't have any.”
“we both loved the happy hour drinks, all drinks were $2 off until 7.”
“We gave it 1 more try thinking maybe they had a bad night - nope - again gross food and again soggy food on deliveries!”
“the cocktail menu was interesting with a bunch of new mixtures i never would have thought of.”
“The service is horrible, but yet you are required to pay a 20% gratuity to the waitress who serves you in belly tops and too short shorts with names like Fire.”
“My boo is the biggest bargain hunter you have ever met, she is a rel penny pincher and she was pleased with the prices we both enjoyed the food and the music we just wissed the live show but the dj was good.”
“However the service is beyond slow, and the food is well - not that great.”
Over the weekend we ordered the family feast chicken fingers and the party wings while watching the football games the fingers were large crispy and well seasoned. The party wings were tantalizing …just could not stop eating them..finger lickin!!!…the chipotle sauce and ranch are great for dipping…
I ordered the truffled mac and & 7 cheeses with chorizo and shrimp. It was amazing moist, creamy and cheese. The portion was so large!
I recently went to five spot for there open mic on wed. the food was on point and the crowd was fun. I had such a good time i went back for their grown and sexy fridays. Omg i had a blast the drinks were the bomb and the d.j was rocking i will be back this week you can count on it. what ever was wrong before according to the posts i've seen is fixed now ijs.
DISGUSTING!. I have ordered twice from Five Spot..the first time it was ok, but my chicken was a little under-cooked, and the mac n' cheese was dry. The second time it was not any better. All of the food seemed like it was made two days prior and sat under a heat lamp. The banana pudding was also old and artificial tasting. Don't waste your money or time.
When I'm in the mood for soul.... I stay the hell away from the Five Spot! When it first opened up I was psyched. The only other place around was Ruthies and though okay, it wasnt all that great. I have eaten there on and off but after the last three times of undercooked BLOODY chicken thigh, hard crusty mac and cheese, sour bitter watery collard greens and a stale velvet cake...forget it..no more chance :o( There's an OUTSTANDING soul food restaurant on Atlantic, right off of Court that though out of the way is well worth it! Stay away from the Five Spot if your looking to fill that particular hankerin...
Go For The Drinks And Music.
I know what Soul Food is supposed to taste like and sorry Five Spot, but you don't make the cut. How do you mess up french fries? You don't bring out a plate of brown twice-fried french fries. Don't they watch Kitchen Nightmares?
I agree about the too-sweet BBQ sauce, the fish was ok but a tad over cooked. The only bright spot are the drinks and general bar atmosphere. I'll go back for that, but get your food someplace else.
great bar to relax and unwind with real people. i loved the place. i went after work with a friend. we both loved the happy hour drinks, all drinks were $2 off until 7. the cocktail menu was interesting with a bunch of new mixtures i never would have thought of. try the hypnotini or the flavored martiini's. we just ordered appetizers, a sampler that had a mix of seafood and some calamari. bottom line the food was good. the staff was friendly and we felt like we made some new friends.
Food/drinks/prices. The first time I went I was alone I ordered a sampler that had some wings fish and shrimp, I was very pleased with the portion and the taste. I had a couple of shots of patron and a few drinks. Ileft the place with a full belly a doggy bag and tippsy. For valantines day my wife and I went to atlantic city we got back to BK and stopped in she remembered the doggy bag I brang home that night and wanted to go she was not too sure about the place. Igot her in, we got a table and ordered. My boo is the biggest bargain hunter you have ever met, she is a rel penny pincher and she was pleased with the prices we both enjoyed the food and the music we just wissed the live show but the dj was good. My wife had the hypnotini and I had a quickie and a triple five fool niiice.GO IF YOU CAN. I invited my cousin and wife to cmome with us one weekend. See u there.
Delicious Home Cooked Comfort Food. I just have to disagree with all the bad reviews. My sweetie and I just went for lunch. The staff was courteous and the food delicious. I had fried cattfish, candied yams and red beans & rice. All good. The catfish was a little spicy, just the way I like it. My bf had chopped north carolina chicken w/bbq sauce on the side, collards and red beans and rice. His chicken was NOT greasy and NOT dry. It was perfect, and the BBQ sauce was tasty. The cake slices were huge, but we didn't have any. The fried chicken looked good too. This is not some greasy diner food or high end tourist trap. Not sure what people are expecting, or if they just like writing bad reviews to make themselves feel important. This is delicious home cooked comfort food. I'm glad they're still in business!
hospital food taste better.
i dont think i had worse.
blan and under cooked hot wing, u can still see viens? disrespectful to real soul food cooks everywhere.
