Nostalgia has defined the 5 O’Clock Club since it opened, as just a bar (under the name Coerper’s 5 O’Clock Club), in 1945. The ownership has changed but part of the reason the popularity of this joint hasn’t waned is it’s kept the trademarks intact: Diners belly up to the bar, where they order a drink and place their dinner order.

Competed against AJ Bombers in the Travel Channel’s “Food Wars,” and despite losing, has triumphed with its “Loser Burger” (colby jack, bacon, fried onions). You can’t really lose here. The hangover burger is like the “Loser,” only topped with a fried egg. The Fresco burger (personal fave) has guac, habanero cheese and pico de gallo. Also very serious about bloody marys, topping them with ingredients that will blow your mind (i.e., bacon cheeseburger).

A private entrance to this intimate Potawatomi Casino & Hotel restaurant lets you avoid the casino crowds. Dine on house-made charcuterie, several Black Angus steaks, as well as specialty cuts of kangaroo and Kobe beef. Venison and fresh fish round out the menu.

Lunchtime options – a savory tart with potatoes and onions was a recent standout – are complemented, sweetly, by flaky creations, and there’s nary a wrong choice. But the kouign-amann (say “queen ah-mahn”) takes the (butter) cake.
