Siblings Mitchell and Mollie Murphree first opened Five Senses Restaurant, Bar & Catering on Nov. 18, 2004. The pair wants diners to have an unforgettable, gourmet dining experience. Their mission is to create mouthwatering, healthy dishes with fresh, local ingredients.

Head Chef Mitchell Murray designed four seasonal menus that require patrons to engage all senses. The restaurant only uses fresh seafood, local meats, and produce from area farmers. The facility purchases their ingredients from Haskell Evans, 4K Farms, Blue Leaf Farms, The Hamery, and HPA Farms.

When you initially walk into the restaurant, you will immediately notice its chic, industrial decor. The marble floors are a slate tan; the bright walls are colorful and warm. Its atmosphere is vibrant and relaxed. Five Senses is perfect for an intimate date night or small celebration.

Appetizer Menu

Begin your meal with a tasty appetizer plate. Order their crisp, fried Gulf oysters. The starter dish is prepared with a spicy Creole mustard, aioli, garlic chives, Andouille sausage, and Serrano hot sauce.

They also offer a grilled flatbread sandwich pressed with goat cheese, sweet potatoes, and a red onion marmalade. Other featured appetizers include their artisanal cheese & marinated olives, tuna chicharrónes, tempura local beef pot roast, and falafels.

Dinner Menu

The dinner, cocktail, and wine menus change every winter, spring, summer, and fall. Their current dinner menu features several fabulous entrees. Ask for their grilled mahi mahi plate. The dish is accompanied with a beet salad, toasted walnuts, cauliflower-potato puree, and spinach.

Sample their succulent, coffee-rubbed duck breast. They also offer a tender, masala-braised lamb. The plate is served with a roasted vegetable mash, raita, and flatbread.

The establishment also sells a sesame-crusted yellowfin tuna plate, seared scallops, and a pan-roasted chicken breast. If you're in the mood for a lighter dish, request one of their salads.


End your meal with one of the eatery's tempting desserts. Try their warm, apple crisp with a spicy ginger ice cream, black rum syrup, and almond brittle.
