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.

This was our first time here and was pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent and our choices were excellent. I would recommend the petite filet mignon, it was cooked perfectly and the creamed spinach was delicious. The server talked us into ordering the Nutella cheesecake, I was hesitant because I am not a fan of cheesecake. We took it home to go and all I can say is WOW. I wish I would've ordered more then one slice! So good. Will be returning.

Excellent and attentive non rushed service.Four our dined out on the value priced Date Night package which included a choice of about 5 entrees ,an appetizer per person and choice of desert per person along with a side per couple. There were some add on items for about 5 dollars addition charge . Food was served leisurely as ordered . A bottle of wine from a selection of about 10 wines is also included. The price of $99 plus tax per couple can’t be beat. Restaurant highly recommended. This offer is available for Monday and Friday . We were there on Monday with a reservation at 6 pm . The restaurant got a little crowded at about 7PM . Noise level very comfortable . My wife and I have dined at Steakhouse 85 previously on other nites and have always found the quality and service to be excellent. A bit pricey on open nites but well worth the visit for great quality steaks and amazingly some great fish choices. By all means GO

Great food, tried the lobster mac and cheese, lobster mashed potatoes, tomahawk steak medium rare which was cooked to perfection. We also tried the calamari, and the cilantro shrimp is a must have. The tar tar was great, awesome wine selection. And pairing the lobster tail with the steak I could’ve died of cardiac arrest and know I lived a full life. Thank you steak house 85. This place never disappoints. Best steak house in New Brunswick

We got a gift certificate when I retired for $125. We went on a Friday night when they had jazz. We got the date night special for $99. It was awesome! It came with a $25 bottle of wine, 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, a large side and 2 desserts. The food was great, we sat in a cozy nook right next to the fireplace and the staff was so completely attentive and super friendly. I recommend it highly!

The waiter was great until the end. He forgot my dessert and my wife’s was incorrect. It took so long to get a simple mistake fixed, we gave up on dessert.

If you want a quieter meal, request a table in the back room.

Excellent "Date Night" option for $99 per couple - 3 courses + a bottle of wine.

Second or third time eating here, steaks were excellent we had. Bone in ribeye and a perfectly cooked fillet, waitstaff are very professional. Spent time speaking with Matthew the owner, friendly place, parking garage right across the street so no parking worries. Will be going back.

Had dinner reservations at 7 and some of our party were detained with traffic during commuting time, and Kevin our waiter was checking in with us periodically to see if we needed anything while we were waiting for the rest of our party to arrive. We were not rushed. Service and food was excellent.

I don't dine in New Brunswick very often, but when I do, I like to visit Steakhouse 85, because the quality of the food and the dining experience are consistently excellent. Our waiter, Paul, was knowledgeable and friendly, and he gave us the time we needed without pushing us. I enjoyed a wedge salad and a dry aged strip steak, and it was perfectly cooked , well seasoned, and delicious. My dining companion enjoyed the Dover sole special, and he pronounced it excellent, also, as was his crab cake appetizer. We topped the meal off with a cheesecake that was delightful. In my opinion, Steakhouse 85 delivers a consistently excellent product, and I will continue to visit it whenever possible.

Certainly a treat for steak lovers. Knowledge of the staff was quite apparent and appreciated. Quality and preparation of food was top notch. Some minor gaps in server attentiveness but overall this is a strong 4.75 stars of 5. Pricing is as expected for a high end steak house. Setting and atmosphere is very nice as well.

I visited this restaurant for a special birthday dinner. We were seated at a table in the bar area and not in the main dining area which I wasn't happy with since I had made a reservation weeks prior. We ordered our appetizers and when asked if we were ready to order our meals we specifically asked that we had time in between which did not happen. Our steaks came out and they were very under cooked. Before you say I didn't know how to order, I've worked in steakhouses I know how to order temperature. They took back the steaks but didn't take the sides back as well. They do that in chain restaurants for goodness sake, I would expect at least the same. We had our steaks returned overdone and ate them with cold sides.
Unfortunately not the experience I was hoping for.

First time at Steakhouse 85. Will definitely return. Food was terrific. Didn’t love seating in back room as we couldn’t hear the music combo but will request better in future. Food was excellent. Large T-bone steak was wonderful and perfect to share for smaller eaters. Parking in public lot across the street. Definitely try but probably not on a night when football or basketball game isn’t Rutgers.

Very good food and service but pricy. We did order quite a bit. Two apps, four entrees, two sides and three desserts, two bottle of wine and a couple cocktails. Wow. When I list it all out like that I guess it’s not so pricy. We enjoyed everything. great service, great ambiance. The place was packed even on a Saturday in February.

Overall experience was excellent. The female manager at front desk ( Was not very pleasant or welcoming) told the hostess to seat us at a table against the wall right next to a very large party. The noise and space level was not comfortable or acceptable. We asked to be moved to another table and were accommodated by the hostess who was very understanding and cheerful. Our waiter, James, was great as was the other wait staff.

Christian was extremely knowledgeable and friendly all while maintaining a professional demeanor. Appetizers were delicious, although the tomahawk chops are what really blew us away. Scalloped potatoes were also very good.
