The manager is very rude and I will never be back and neither will anyone that I know. I live only blocks away and previously enjoyed this bar for a night cap. I do not recommend the Little Five location.

My husband and I ate here before a concert at Variety Playhouse. What a great spot on the patio. And we were surprised by how good the food was. Our waitress was very attentive, but not pushy. And the beer selection is great, prices reasonable. People watching is superb! We saw things we never see in the suburbs!

This modish nightspot commands one of the city's trendiest intersections at the junction of hip Moreland and even hipper Euclid, where avant-garde fashion meets slacker chic. An expansive metallic-topped bar groans under the weight of bottles while friendly and foxy servers draw "draughts" and make time with overflow patrons inside who escape the crowds on the open-air patio and pack the pool room. Black-and-white photos of Atlanta's heyday adorn the walls. Comfy booths and a few out-of-the-way corner tables allow for private conversations but the street-side seating is where the real action happens.

You couldn't find a better corner to sit on in ATL for people watching. The patio is big-ususally can get a place out there. Pretty good brunches and bloody marys!

The L5P is not for everybody: seedy bums here and there begging for change, but if you want basic food and drink, then this will work. If you want Spago's, then L5P is not yer place.

I don't go here a lot, but when I have been it was great. Pool tables, darts, and it is never too crowded, even on the weekends. If you need a place for a group to go, this is it. Just watch out for the bums out front.

Food was good and the weekday beer pricing was manageable. The service was a little slow, but not horrible. Only have been during the week and the crowd was light and mostly people eating or hanging out with a few friends. Not necessarily a great singles place, but great for a date or a few beers after work.

Been there several times. This last time we went for dinner and a couple beers. Food was fine but after we had finished eating, I noticed something moving on the floor along one of the grout lines. Its kinda dark in there so it took me a second to figure out it was a mouse. We watched for a minute and then flagged down a server. His response was the disturbing part... "Yea he's been here awhile there is a hole over there he gets in. We should name him, maybe its a girl its Gertrude." And well that was the extent of his concern. A little later another couple pointed it out a recieved about the same reaction. Hopefully the furry friend is no longer visiting the place but I wouldnt go back. I like our furry friends well enough, just don't want to dine with them.

I live in the neighborhood as well and was disapointed with the L5PCT. I will have to say this is the WORST dining & drinking place L5P has to offer. I've had consistently terrible service and food here. I've been given attitude for asking for asking for extra ice after the server refilled my tea & I've been charged for refills on sodas! Also, the burgers (my fav for lunch) are very inconsistent and seem to be burnt on the outside while rare on the inside. The fries are a draw as well.

food is decent but way overpriced. the servers are not very nice or effective. definately not a family friendly place with their clientel and they allow smoking everywhere even before the evening hours. I get seated next to smokers during lunch!

Unfortunately, I was willing to give this "new" joint a shot. I stopped in last night with some friends for a bite to eat and a beer, ordered drinks and preceded to wait about 15 minutes before finally having to go seek out waitstaff - this being after we'd noticed that people seated after us had been served. Upon inquiry, we were told that they were too busy to serve us and that we'd be better off going elsewhere. This is the first time I'd ever encountered such rudeness and incompetence in my life. Fortunately, I know just about everybody who works in the surrounding area, been a patron of the venue preceding this one (9 Nives Saloon was preferable to this yuppie replacement), and have patronized several other neighborhood joints for years. I was also accompanied by a bartender from the Euclid Avenue Yacht Club who said that the waiter who suggested we leave frequents her bar. We filed out and down the street to the 5 Spot, which was hopping, ate good food, drank good beer and started spreading the word about L5P Tavern. We've at least gotten a handful of people so disgusted that they will no longer set foot in this place. We're the locals.
