Oh my, our first time viewing with an illuminated menu....our waiter was outstanding and the food was superb. My pear martini was pure perfection....going back next week for my wedding anniversary.
Anna was the best server! She made our night feel extra special 😀
Dinner was amazing the mood was perfect for date night. Will definitely be back
Special family occasion but we will be back for date night offering
Delicious as always! No matter how busy they are, the wait staff caters to you as if you are the only one in the restaurant.
The server was nice. It took them forever to turn on the heat above our heads. They gave us steak knives that hardly cut the steaks. The steaks were perfectly cooked but not very flavorful, especially for aged. The sides were good but some of them needed a little more salt. Overall, a good dinner but nothing really great or exceptional.
Service was amazing and the thick cute bacon was to die for!
Been coming here for almost 10 years. The restaurant and the owner always go above and beyond for me and my family. They treat you as if you are family. The wine, cocktails, appetizers, steak and dinner are all mouth watering. Always a great experience.
It was an amazing dining experience. We will be back!
Everything was perfect for celebrating quietly our son’s birthday. The wait staff was on point and we took advantage of the 1/2 priced wine and was pleased to see Stags Leap Cabernet which we promptly ordered. All of the appetizers were well prepared and plated as well as the entrees and side dishes. We all got steaks that were cooked to perfection.
Desserts were also excellent as well. Ezra, our waiter was totally professional and the rest of the staff are well trained. Great experience.
Excellent service and food! Great experience!
Great beautiful place to eat at great food great atmosphere great servers
Excellent all the way around! Will be back !
Everything was perfect! Perfect social distancing to celebrate my husbands birthday!!
I’ve been here a bunch of times. My steak was over cooked. I didn’t want to send it back. It still tasted good. But it was a bit disappointing. Otherwise apps were good. Sides were good. Good cocktails. Great service
We had Easter dinner - everything was excellent as per usual.. this place never disappoints. Half price bottles of wine was an added plus!
We were a party of four, taken care of by a lovely hostess who seated us near a nice fireplace ( just far enough away) not to be terribly warm. Our next encounter was with a terrific waiter named Joe. He was pleasant, knowledgeable and not obtrusive. His suggestions were great, he knew his menu, was spot on. His backup staff were also excellent. They filled, refilled, took care of everything. Very well trained and accommodating.
The food was delicious. Seafood tower, which we added king crab, was fresh and delicious. We also had their bacon app, shared salad and they were kind enough to have small cups of onion soup, outstanding,and corn chowder. The main course of various steaks and sides and their lamb special were perfectly prepared. The wines, especially at 1/2 price were very good.
We shared some desserts also delicious.
This was our first visit, not the last. Highly recommend.
Our meal was delicious & the service was outstanding.

food and service top notch really good except steak
Great date night dinner!! The food was delish and the service was fantastic!!!
Wonderful steakhouse and the menu is extraordinary. Staff is courteous and prompt with food and drink
I’ve been coming to Steakhouse 85 for years and spent New Years Eve 2020 there with some friends. From birthdays to work events, I’ve never been disappointed in the restaurant and I’m a picky person. The food is always great, the vibe is good and the drinks even better. Highly recommend.
Great meal. Our server Anna was phenomenal!
I have been there several times and the food is great, one of the best steakhouses in Middlesex county. the seafood is also top notch. Can't wake to go back
Sorry to say my experience was very disappointing. Reservations for 4 at 8:00 waited to be seated. Hostess/staff looked and seemed unprepared and confused . The waiter was friendly but the appetizer plates were forgotten until we asked if we were suppose to use our bread plates. The server had no clue who ordered or received each entree and placed the wrong meal in front of each of us, 0 for 4 - ridiculous! Tomahawk was overly fatty and not impressive. This was my second consecutive bad experienced "was hoping it was a fluke" but unfortunately it was not and there will be no third attempt! There are too many great steakhouse out there to throw away $600.
It was our first time there and we were satisfied and it lived up to our expectations. We will be back soon. Joe was an great server and food was very good
I’ve been here before, but this was my first time taking my wife. We felt well taken care of, the food came exactly as ordered. Appetizers were excellent, well paired with the weather and season. 10/10 would recommend again.
The service was great and the food was delicious excellent restaurant
Fantastic food, great atmosphere and great staff.
always enjoy dinning at SteakHouse 85, fill welcome everytime we come.
This was our first time dining out since the pandemic and I must say the service was outstanding, the table setup at the restaurant was very spacious and we felt safe. The food was phenomenal!!! We look forward to our next visit.
I really enjoy goin to this restaurant.
I expected more didn’t really meet my expectations for the price of the meal.
I dine at Steakhouse 85 frequently because I receive a warm welcome, the meal is always delicious and the service professional and gracious. On Monday I tried the pork chop for the first time. It was sooo delicious that I am still thinking about it. I plan to order the pork chop many more times.
Overall very nice experience. Steak was excellent. Side dishes were good too but definitely needed seasoning. Staff was very pleasant and present all the time. I would definitely return in the future. Hubby enjoyed his bday dinner 😊
Birthday. Was so nice they gave us a free birthday dessert
My husband and I go to Steakhouse 85 every Anniversary, this is our special place, we are never disappointed, we do the date night menu, which is excellent, the choices are great something for everyone, we have never had a problem with the food, service, special attention, I just can't say enough about the whole experience, we will be going here for a long time to come.
Fabulous meal to celebrate my son's 25th birthday. He said it was the best steak he had ever eaten. From appetizers to dessert everything was wonderful. You won't be disappointed.
