I don't live in Shelby but dined here over the weekend while visiting family. 5 East is a nice looking restaurant, I like the casual elegance theme. Decent wine list and martinis, and the food was overall pretty good. I have only 2 complaints about my "pecan crusted" trout, one being it is not really pecan crusted. It is dusted with breadcrumbs and fried, with only a sprinkling of chopped pecans served on top of the fish. Also the mashed potatoes and chopped asparagus and carrots it was served with were delicious, however there was a huge pool of butter covering the bottom of my plate. Yes, butter makes everything great, but you can have too much. Their menu is bascially Southern food yet served elegantly, which seems to be a growing trend with new restaurants. The quality of the food was good, they seem to use nice fresh ingridients. The restaurant needs some work in the service department. We had a reservation but were told we had to wait about 15 mins, even though there were several empty tables when we arrived. Once we got seated, our waiter arrived with water but didn't have enough for the table. He said he'd be back with water, but we had to ask for water 4 more times before he finally brought it. He was very absent minded, but luckily some food runners brought our food which came out at a good pace and was served hot. If we had to rely on our waiter to bring the food I don't think we would have ever gotten it! They also had a kid's menu for my nephew and brought his food out quicker than everyone else's, so I can actually recommend the restaurant for children as well. I would definitely dine here again, I just hope I have a better experience next time.
