Our Story

In August 2012, Gallins Foods saw an opportunity for the space at 109 South Stratford Road, a large building with a unique floor plan in a good location, to become a new dining experience in Winston-Salem.  We left the space fairly open, but created a warm and welcoming environment through brighter colors, soft accents, and careful attention to detail.  The biggest key to completing the transformation, however, was training our team to ensure that guests felt welcome during every visit.  Whether our guests arrive in their jeans or their Sunday best, we strive to provide them with the best dining experience possible, from food to service to atmosphere. 

Our management makes sure that every detail of service provided to guests exceeds expectations and is consistent with every visit, and our chefs work diligently to combine flavors and techniques to create a menu full of features to surprise and delight our guests.  Our extensive wine list offers complementary pairings for every distinct flavor on our menu, and our full bar features signature cocktails and an array of draft and bottled beers.

Gallins Foods has kept its primary operations in Winston-Salem since its inception in 1948, so the company has taken steps to make sure that Five Points supports the local economy, community, and environment.   Five Points uses locally sourced ingredients as much as possible, including daily seafood features from the North Carolina coast.  We also support community non-profits, including Senior Services, The Children's Center, Brenner Children's Hospital, Crisis Control Ministry, and more, as well as local artist Julian Charles, whose photography is featured throughout the restaurant.  Additionally, we are taking steps to reduce our environmental impact by using compostable carry-out containers, working with Gallins Family Farm to compost all our organic waste, recycling our used fryer oil to make biodiesel, and reducing the water used in our restrooms by as much as 40,000 gallons per year.

We are excited about our opportunities to serve the greater Winston-Salem community, both through the experiences we provide for our guests and the local efforts to which we contribute, and we look forward to continuing and expanding these efforts as we strive for continual improvement.
