Steakhouse
Steakhouse 85 is a 21st century rendition of the classic American Steakhouse. The menu at Steakhouse 85 is comprised of fresh and inspiring modern day interpretations of classic American cuisine, served alongside the traditional steakhouse classics we all know and love. The back bone of our menu is without a doubt our beef. Our mouth watering dry aged steaks are rubbed with a simple yet luscious combination of sea salt, black pepper and fresh herbs. They are seared on a 1200 degree cast iron grill and then broiled to your liking. Paired with a large classically designed bar, complete with savvy cocktails and a Wine Spectator award winning wine list, this steakhouse is sure to please.

    Everything was great, except that I had ordered the Cowboy Ribeye, and although it was tasty, it didn’t come out hot. It was warm and dry. Could have been an off day but will definitely come back and perhaps try another cut. All and all it was still a great experience.

    We've had better experiences here in the past. It was VERY noisy on our last visit, kids running around, a little less formal than it used to be, which was somewhat disappointing. For the price, I expected to see more professional customers and fewer unescorted children. At the very least, I would expect the staff to provide a "buffer" of a table between parties with kids jumping around so they're not on top of neighboring diners. A bit disappointed.

    Food was excellent. Service was outstanding. I wasn’t happy with the table we were seated at. It was right next to a tall cabinet near the front door. Too many people between other patrons & wait staff going past our table constantly to get to other tables that were in the room. It was very disruptive.

    Great place. Our server, Michael did a great job all the way around. Food perfectly cooked and the staff was very attentive throughout the meal. It is pricey but certainly worth it if you are celebrating something or looking for a fine meal and a great atmosphere and service. I highly recommend.

    We started off with the Jumbo Lump Crab Martini appetizers, our favorite. For our mains, the Cowboy Ribeye was amazing, had a nice crust on the outside and perfectly cooked medium rare on the inside and Petit Filet mignon cooked to perfection as well. Steak85 is the only restaurant we order steak, I call it anxiety free steak, you can always count on a high quality product and cooked perfectly the way you asked.

    Our waitress was great and very thoughtful and attentive. It was our anniversary, and the waitress made our evening special. Extra help in identifying the wine was very helpful. Our salads wer great as my wife had beet and i had spinach salads. Steaks were also great but i could not finish all of it and was able to bring it home.
