Wine Enthusiast named Five & Ten on their list of America's 100 Best Wine Restaurants of 2016! Georgia Trent recognized Five & Ten with the 2016 Silver Spoon Award! The restaurant opened at the new location in the historic Hawthorne House on July 10, 2013. Five and Ten is located at 1073 South Milledge Avenue and was built by architect, Fred Orr, in the early twentieth century. The original home was left mostly untouched, although a kitchen was added to the back of the building. There are many dining rooms, a spacious bar, a coffee bar, as well as patio seating at the new location.

The new restaurant offers parking and space for private events. The bar opens daily at 5 p.m. and dinner service begins at 5:30 p.m. The restaurant's final seating is at 9:30 Sunday through Thursday, and 10:30 on Fridays and Saturdays. Brunch is served on Sundays from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.

Join them for Fried Chicken Night every Sunday night.

Reservations can be made for private parties such as, bridal luncheons, business meetings, corporate luncheons, or cocktail parties during the day or night
