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.

Service was good. Food tasty and their own branded steak house was very good. Ambiance was nice as well and I would definitely return. While I have had better steaks - more flavor, Steak 85 is still up there on my list.

Ugh I hate to say this place has gone down. Lobster Mac and cheese tasted very fishy, our steaks were tough. The ambiance and service was good, the food was not.

Where do I start?
A friend suggested we try this restaurant and all of the reasons she suggested were spot on.
From the amazing lobster ravioli with truffle oil, to the herbed spread for the butter. My husband had the cowboy steak....he was in his Happy place. I will say, we had land and sea across the table and every dish was more delicious than the last.

We will definitely visit again, the general manager Chris was very kind.

Anna was our server and she was amazing. Her knowledge of the menu was on point. The food was incredible. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. The sides were all very good. A must try is the truffle tater tots. To die for.

Overall the experience was really good. I had the tomahawk steak and the temperature was exactly as I ordered it. It definitely needed more salt but otherwise was well marbled and had a nice crust on the exterior. Ordered the bacon appetizer and that was excellent. A much larger portion than I expected.

I have to tell you, I really enjoy a good steak. Happened to come across steakhouse 85 and wanted to try it out. It was hands down the best steak I’ve ever had. The service from Tom was exceptional and all food and drinks were amazing. I can 100% recommend the Kings Platter. I promise you will not be disappointed with this place! Thanks again!

I ordered the most expensive steak on the menu and it had little taste. I was disappointed with my dinner but my kids had the filet and they were very pleased. I prefer Char in Red Bank. It’s a little pricier but I have never been disappointed.

Best ever. Beats ruth's chris byva mike. Steak was great. Cooked perfectly service was outstanding. She even gave us more time to enjoy ourselves. Gave us a little while after each course and even waited until we asked her to put out main course in. The service was attentive and very friendly. No rush at all so we could enjoy our meal without each course being piled on top of you. Expensive but well worth it. I would recommend this place over any other steakhouse. A real steakhouse. Which means alla carte. But the meat was cooked to perfection and taste was great. Portions are not skimped so u will leave full or with left overs. Place I will definitely revisit. Aa for reservations. Make at least 2 weeks out for desired time. If not won't get a seat. Atmosphere is cozy and relaxing. Not loud or super quiet. Except for long reservations there is nothing negative about this place. First time I have ever seen a a light board menu. TOP NOTCH

Classic steakhouse look and feel with oak wood work and bar and local Rutgers sports memorabilia tastefully displayed. Fireplace in main dining room adds a nice touch on cold winter days. Menu has all steak an sea food options you would expect and was very good. If you're looking for a traditional high end steakhouse, this fits the bill.

Food was average at best. Garlic on the steak was overpowering. The seafood on the tower didn’t look or taste fresh.

I used to love going to this restaurant. However my recent visit was utterly disappointing. When I ordered my steak it was so burnt on the outside that it was the only thing I could taste. I ended up having to drown it in steak sauce (which I feel is sacrilegious for a high quality steak) in order to eat it, which I couldn’t finish.
