Local Business Spotlight: Five O'Clock Sports Bar & Grill Raising the Bar in 2019!

7189 Turner Lake Rd 
Covington, GA 30014

As this publication wrote about some time back, Five O'Clock Sports Bar & Grill is an amazing place with great people & food while featuring fun entertainment & live music. 

Five O'Clock Bar & Grill, located at 7189 Turner Lake Rd, has become a veritable institution over the last several years. Opened back in the mid 2000s, this fantastic music venue - that also happens to have some of the best food in the home county - has continued to thrive as truly a "Cheers" type place, where everyone knows your name. 

That special & unique feeling that derives from Five O'Clock comes from "a sense of community & family" that owner Greg Rogers & I talked about the other day when I interviewed him for this piece. In addition to the aforementioned attributes of being a top-notch music spot; having a kitchen putting out high quality, not-your-typical bar food; and the fellowship & camaraderie this cool place provides - they also strive to help folks who need a helping hand & are always wanting to give back to the community.
As the premier spot in town it'd be easy to rest on their laurels but that's just not Greg & them's style.

First off, they've got a new menu & those that know the Kitchen Manager, Jake, know that this guy is serious about food!

New Menu Items

The Brisket Sandwich

Absolutely *OUT-OF-BOUNDS* Too good! 

Jumbo Taco Salad

People are RAVING about this one! 

And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Homemade Pimento Cheese, Pretzel Bites, Funnel Cake Fries & - now - a Ribeye steak, plus several other new additions are available on the regular menu. However, as us 5 O'Clock foodies will tell you, the Piece De Resistance is their daily specials. This is where they really shine! Po-Boys, Pasta dishes, Pulled Pork, Smoked Chicken Wings, you just never know! Call 770.385.3060 or check their FB page to stay up to date on these daily meals. 

Expanded Beer List

Five O'Clock has always had a good beer selection (and they've got a real nice price on their Sweetwater 420 draft, btw), as they're doing with their food menu - the bar is being raised. Ditto on their selection of spirits. 

Smoke Free for Lunch, starting Monday June 3rd

For quite some time I've had folks tell me how much they enjoy the food at The Five but they can't handle the smoke. "Call in a to-go order," I'd always say, but sometimes you just want to be able to go somewhere to eat, especially for lunch. Well, a fair number of other folks also felt the same way so the People have spoken - starting Monday June 3rd, 2019 - 5 O’clock Sports Bar & Grill will be non-smoking from open till 2PM Monday - Friday. This means all ages are welcome, during these hours. Smoking will still be allowed on the patio. 

Five O'Clock will now be non-smoking until 2 PM Monday - Friday! 

Regular Weekly Entertainment

For years now, Five O'Clock has been known as Covington's Destination Location for live music. With bands as varied as PitBoss, The Peeled Onions, Kiser, Peachtree Peppers & others, great music can be found on both Friday & Saturday nights. And lately the place has been having live music on Sunday afternoons as well!

There's always something going on at The 5!
