We had dinner at Hi 5 tonight and the service was terrible. The food and atmosphere was fine, but our server had a bad attitude all night. We are very easy on servers and waiters, but this one was really bad. He over charged us for extra drinks, and when we brought it to his attention he got in our face, and tried to provoke an argument. Food is good, but we really didn't want to end the night with a confrontation.

I love this place. I've heard great things about it. I went with a friend of mine and we loved it. The food was great & very affordable (all their food is $5). Later that night, it turns into a nightclub. It's so packed on Saturdays. I would DEFINITELY recommend this place to my friends and classmates. I would DEFINITELY go there again.

The beer is a decent deal. The place is a little small and the bouncers are a tad too strict after 10 pm. Plus they are kind of hidden and easy to drive right past.

Hi 5 is a great bar, and there are so many options as to what you do there. Week nights, everything is laid back and you can sit and chat with friends. On the weekends, it is one of the hottest spots in raleigh. The dance stage gets crazy. There are all types of music and all types of people. 5 stars for sure!

Perfect spot for a girls/guys night out. The only thing I don't like is the size, sometimes I wonder if they let too many people in because it gets really difficult to move around.

This place is awesome. Yes it gets packed on a big game day but what good bar doesn't. They have a tv at every booth, beers from around the world, and the food is just 5 dollars. Except the heavenly Kobe beef burger which is 7. The place is great place to eat, and watch the game

Made the mistake of leaving Bogarts and going downstaris to Hi5. Place was packed could hardly move. Took forever to get a drink. The only good part was the fact that I did not have to pay the cover fee or wait in line to get in because I had paid the fee at Bogarts.

If you haven?t been to Hi5, at least to watch a game, you need to. The place is filled with TVs and like-minded sports fans. They even have their own free fantasy football league with prizes each week. Really one of the best places in the Triangle to watch a game.

I started frequenting Hi5 last year after I was told all of their food on the menu was $5. Not only is it actually pretty tasty, but it turns out that it?s a great little underground sports bar too. All of the booths have miniature flat screen TVs, a serious plus during football, hockey and basketball seasons.

The food is great...they just get to compensate how much money they lose from it, with over charging on drinks. I would rather go somewhere else where everything evens out!

My friends and I were looking for a good place to watch the games this weekend and one of them mentioned Hi5, so we decided to go there. This place is an awesome place to watch the games ? I mean each booth has its own flat screen. Hi5 is my new spot to watch the games and would highly recommend it.

Hi5 $5 menu

Recently some co-workers and I were looking for a place to go grab some dinner and a few drinks ? we decided on Hi5. I had been there before to have drinks but never for dinner, well I was really impressed. I could not believe their entire menu was only $5 and would recommend their Stuffed Burger.

I visited hi-5 with my friends for the first time for my birthday in january and may i say that it was the WORST time I have ever had. I had visited the red room and had a great time but many people said hi-5 was better. We left a good time and stepped into a HELL HOLE! First of all, we had to wait in the cold for almost an hour because we had on coats (it was 35 degree weather) and the coat check was full and coat check is mandatory. The bartender charged us twice for drinks. The music was horrible and when the dj played a good song, you couldn't enjoy yourself because the room was so smoky that your eyes burned. Guys were pushing us all over the floor and jumping up smacking hands with their homeboys. All in all, i will not recommend hi-5 to anyone but smokers and those who are paying cash for your drinks. Maybe you won't get charged twice. It was a horrible experience and I will, from now on, stick to the Red Room and Bogarts.

Pros: We got a dirty table fast

Cons: The Waiting, The DJ, The Ambience

My husband and I use to go to Hi 5 for the Kobe beef burgers at least once a week. When we first started going a year ago, things were fine... GREAT food, good customer service and nice local beers on tap that you couldn't get anywhere else.
That was a year ago, now everything has changed.
After our first extremely disappointing experience 6 months ago, we decided to give it 3 more tries.
In those 3 tries, we received the wrong food, over cooked food and extremely awful service that made me feel sorry for our server in general.
Having worked as a waitress for a majority of my life, I can honestly say that the turn over rate for waitstaff for this restaurant has something to do with the management and the lack of motivation and sense of pride the workers have for this establishment.. and it clearly shows!
Hi 5 had the potential and drive at one time to be amazing.. however, somewhere and somehow, it all went downhill. It saddens me that my husband and I have to now find a nice place that serves big, juicy burgers by a worker that is attentive and timely when approaching their tables.
There is noway in hell I would recommend anyone who values a good dining experience to go to Hi 5.
Porters on Hillsborough St, however, has been an acceptable replacement.

I recently went to Hi5 and loved this place! With a huge bar and epic TV?s, how can you not have fun? The 5 dollar price tags on everything on the menu don?t hurt either. Food: check, TV?s: check, Dance Floors: check! I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great place to go to have fun in Glenwood South.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND HIGH 5 on a weekend night. The clientele they ask for is what they get. We tried to go out on a night with friends for a anniversary party. We were not allowed in with improper shoes. However, three girls with skirts up their huge backsides (for a proper choice of words) were let in. All we had to do was ask one question calmly about it before we had 3 bouncers pushing us up the steps and screaming at us. We were told to wait on a manager approval then this happened. Then the Raleigh Police officer, hired by the bar got involved. We just wanted to leave at this point, is all we stated and go down the street, that was not a option. In fact if we talked we were going to jail according to this officer "off duty". Well sure enough, the Raleigh Police officer "off duty" pushed one of the girls and stepped on her foot. As she was calling 911 for help, the officer stated, "no need for that, I am going to arrest you for assault". Assault on him, a 240lbs man coming from a 120lbs female. Keep in mind, this girl was on her engagement party night. Is this what you want to be involved in, or celebrate a special occasion with friends. Turns out the cop was off duty, and his buddies didn't know why he was taking our friend to jail. Its seemed to be a misunderstanding or overreaction "quoted words from a officer on scene", needless to say 2 hours later, and no engagement party. We got her out of jail. But let this be a lesson to you. We had sober people in the crowd. They will push you around and make sure they do what they want with you. There are allot of places in this town I would recommend. DON'T RUIN YOUR NIGHT AT THIS BAR!!!!

I walked out of the bar last night with a bottle of water I just bought. The bouncer tried to take it from me, when I refused instead of explaining why they wanted my water bottle. 3 thug bouncers attacked me on the sidewalk and strangled me. The cops came and instead of questioning the bouncers motives they took me to jail. Now I have a sore neck and jaw and a story about a night in jail which was not pleasant.

Thanks alot HI5!!!!

Me and my friends went to Hi5 on Monday because all their beer is only $3 and the bartenders make up a shot that?s only a dollar. It?s a great place to watch games on their in-booth plasma tvs and just kick back. Definitely try it out.

I went to Hi-5 about a week ago to watch the College World Series because a few of my friends told me that it was the best place to go watch ACC teams play. The food was great, and seriously ? everything was $5! My friends and I ordered a bunch of appetizers - the buffalo wings were great and we ordered buckets of beer. There were TVs in every booth so everyone could see and the picture was great because they are all plasmas. Hi-5 was a great place to go and watch the game. I?ll definitely be going back.

Yea we went up to the door and i simply asked the bouncer how old you had to be to get in. He Said :at least 21" but he was EXTREMELY rude to me and my friend. Granted that We could've gotten in but went elsewhere and had a really great time. So forget Hi 5 and Go to a different club. There are plenty other places with nicer, and better looking, bouncers.

Went to Hi 5 to watch the Espy's with some friends last week and I was amazed that all the food really is 5 bucks! I was expecting a catch but there was none. The bartender was very attentive and the food was outstanding, I would expect to pay double if not triple other places for the portions I got. Great beer list too. Keep it up guys!

I really like going to Glenwood and bar going to different bars. This past Sat. me and my friend ended up in Hi5, we had some drinks and I left the tab open and at the end of the night I wanted to have some shots and then pay out my tab. The bartender lost my card and then claimed that I never opened a tab. I told her she had my card so she came back with some guy that I assume was the manager because he was not wearing a black shirt he was wearing a white shirt he yelled at me stating that he did not have my card and told me he was going to kick me out if I did not leave but I was not going to leave with my card so he got me kicked out. I did not cause a scene I just told the bouncer that I wanted my card. The bouncer was more professional than the manager and helped me with the situation. After everyone left I went back inside and had another bartender help me find my card and when he couldn't find it he got another manager to talk to me this one was going to just give me his business card and let me leave but I refused to leave without my card so he asked me who was my bartender and I told him who it was then she came around really quick with my card and left even quicker. It was obvious that I wasn't at fault and requested that the other manager apologize for his mistake but even that was too much to ask. So I got treated like some stupid drunk, got yelled at, got kicked out, and had to wait an extra hour for the place to clear because someone did not do their job right. If you are going to go to this place make sure you bring cash so you wont have to go through the same experience I did.

I had read a little about Hi5 and the other restaurants at the 510 Glenwood address, and we decided to try it for dinner. At 5pm it wasn't very crowded, but the place had a wonderful atmosphere. Hip and clean, there were flat-screen TVs playing various sports channels all over the place. We were greeted by a nice hostess and taken to a cute booth. The seats are high up and each booth has its own little TV, so it was a nice setting - cozy. The menu ranged from appetizers to burgers to salads to desserts, and MOST everything was $5. Upgrading to their specialty Kobe beef brought the cost up by $3, but that's pretty normal for burger prices anyway. Our waitress was very friendly and introduced us to their specials (including $3 beers every Monday). My boyfriend enjoyed his Kobe Beef cheeseburger, and I really liked my Grilled Chicken Salad (Unique, with grapes, cashews, mesculin mix, brie, and a ranch peppercorn dressing). We didn't even need fries or anything, though if we had it would have been only $5 extra. We finished with their "s'more shooter" desserts -- perfectly sized for 2 people and DELICIOUS! This restaurant was awesome and we can't wait to go back!

I take the family to Hi 5 all the time. We order multiple items and make it our own buffet table. The burgers are great and having my own TV in a booth works out great. Great food and drinks! Sports food and drinks!

Pros: Great Food and TV's Everywhere

First, I'll echo the last reviewer's sentiments. $5.00 bucks?! Special Draft beers (Good Ones -not just the likes of Miller/Bud/Coors) for $3? WOW! They have a lot (I believe over 200? ) beers on the menu. I too was also expecting really small plates, but the portions were more than adequate. My friend ordered the "Cheesy Poofs", which were very good, and I ordered the Fried Wontons w/ Crabmeat. Those were extremely delicous, and not over-fried like in most places. We proceeded to order Burgers - I had the Surf and Turf (Medium), and my friend ordered a Mushroom-Swiss(Medium) . Usually I don't like to mess up a burger w/ seafood, but this one was stacked with a Crabcake, and I love crabmeat. Not only were the burgers a really nice size, but the meat was excellent. They were done perfectly and tasted extremely good. One thng to note, that you do have to order sides alacarte. We ordered steak fries, that came piled up high like a perfect Jenga Tower, and were also seasoned perfectly. I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality, service and price of the food. This place is so much better than other sports bars. The other places have the same generic menu. Let's not forget the the Sports is what makes a sports bar, and there was PLENTY of that around. Big screen LCD and Plasma TVs everywhere to pretty much view any sporting event desired. The staff was very courteous and took really good care of us.
The one strange thing that I noticed was that there weren't too many people in this place for a Friday evening. The waitress told me that they usually start hopping after 10:00 PM.
Very surprising for what they have to offer you.
All in all, the bill for 4 great beers (an IPA, a summer brew, Sam Adams and a Black and Tan), 2 apps, 2 speciality burgers and one side came out to a paltry $38.00.
This place is definitely a keeper !!

We proceeded to order Burgers - I had the Surf and Turf (Medium), and my friend ordered a Mushroom-Swiss(Medium) . Usually I don't like to mess up a burger w/ seafood, but this one was stacked with a Crabcake, and I love crabmeat. Not only were the burgers a really nice size, but the meat was excellent. They were done perfectly and tasted extremely good. One thng to note, that you do have to order sides alacarte. We ordered steak fries, that came piled up high like a perfect Jenga Tower, and were also seasoned perfectly. I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality, service and price of the food. This place is so much better than other sports bars. The other places have the same generic menu. Let's not forget the the Sports is what makes a sports bar, and there was PLENTY of that around. Big screen LCD and Plasma TVs everywhere to pretty much view any sporting event desired. The staff was very courteous and took really good care of us.
The one strange thing that I noticed was that there weren't too many people in this place for a Friday evening. The waitress told me that they usually start hopping after 10:00 PM.
Very surprising for what they have to offer you.
All in all, the bill for 4 great beers (an IPA, a summer brew, Sam Adams and a Black and Tan), 2 apps, 2 speciality burgers and one side came out to a paltry $38.00.
This place is definitely a keeper !!

Pros: Great Food, Value, Service

Cons: Couldn't find a single thing to complain about

The whole menu is $5. Everything. I thought the portions would be skimpy, but I could barely finish my burger! quality was excellent!

What a great idea for a bar!

We had a wonderful waitress who was constantly checking to make sure we had all we needed. Our food was served quickly, and was very good for bar food. The entire place was very smoky, and we both left reeking of it. My hair, pants, shirt. . everything. There are many screens, so it was a great place to watch basketball. however, there were ZERO vegetarian options on the menu. Even their salads have meat on them. With a long list of burger options I expected at least a veggie burger or something. Parking was a bit difficult

I've been to Hi5 since it remodeled...much better than before. I went on Sat. a few weeks ago and had Fall (Autm) as my waitress. Super hot, super nice. My friends and I had a great time and have been back to see her since. She mentioned that she works every Saturday so we'll see her there tomorrow!

240 Beers makes this The #1 place in the Triangle for beer selection! drink them all and you get 1/2 off your food for life! New American Tapas menu is great contrary to the previous Bogus review. Flat screen TV's at every table, Plasmas and big screens everywhere and a Sports lounge and private room that just flat out ROCKS. Specials include 1.50 cans of beer Sunday for Football Season, $8 all you can eat wings Monday, $3 everything behind the Bar Tuesday, buy 1 get one Apps on Wed., and Thursday is Raleigh's best ladies night with 1/2 price martinis and 1/2 off food for the ladies. The VJ music system is a blast BTW. Management, Staff and Ownership of Hi5 totally commited to providing their guests with a great experience!

If you're into blasting 80's music, cold apps, and bad service - the "all new" Hi5 is for you. While the place looks nice with the upgrades and the music system is modern, you can't overlook the fact that #1 - you CAN NOT hear anyone talking to you (you have to point to your order on the menu because the servers can't even hear), #2 the food is cold and bland, #3 the "wait-staff" is less than cordial. There are many other places downtown where you can enjoy an evening out while listening to good music and enjoying good food and drinks.

Everything is different; the food is now very high quality, their are over 200 beers on tap...these guys added an incredible vj music system. Perfect place for a private party! Now offering casino entertainment weekly. New hardwood floors have been added throughout as well as flat screens at every table. Still offers the dance club feel - just a cleaned up version...ladies who have gone seem to love this place because of the new dance floor area, the music and the ambience. Plus, bring in a Citysearch Offer and receive 50% off food through June!
