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.
The ambiance was nice, the food was amazing and the service was top notch...
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.
Had a great family gathering and the service and food were on point. Lovely time in a wonderful setting.
Ambiance was great, service was excellent, food was amazing!!!
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.
Steak was servers room temperature clearly was sitting ready for awhile before delivering to the table. Call manager whobreheated the same steak so became overcooked.
Excellent service, food was all cooked perfectly. Food was fast. EVERYTHING WAS 5 STAR!!!! Will definitely go back soon.
The food was cooked just as I asked. It was seasoned well. I really enjoyed this place and will be going again.
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.
Unbelievable food. Amazing waitress and staff. Great prices. All around phenomenal experience.
We enjoyed celebrating our Anniversary at Steakhouse 85 ,everything was superb
Food and service was amazing for my husbands birthday! We enjoyed our night.
Fantastic experience. Great service and food. The Date Night pre-fixe is a very good deal!
The food as always was amazing, service was great, staff was very careful following covid guidelines. Best steakhouse in New Jersey!
Food was excellent and service and wait staff was top notch! Great experience!
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!
Steakhouse 85 was a great dining experience for me and my wife. I will definitely be going back.
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.
Great restaurant would definitely visit again. Excellent location parking garage across the street.
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
As always, great service and food. Steakhouse is consistently delicious
Everything was great.
Loved it! Service and food were great. Ambiance was excellent. All around was definitely outstanding. Looking forward to go back
Loved the date night deal!!!!! Waitress was so nice and didn’t rush us, and the food was amazing!! Will definitely come back :)
Everything was absolutely amazing to help celebrate our anniversary. Food was delicious.
Wife’s birthday. Seated on time, courteous staff, delicious salads, steaks and deserts
Steakhouse 85 always delivers a beautiful meal. Staff is beyond friendly. Can't wait to go back
Always a pleasure to dine here. Service is top notch as well as the food.
Never disappoints. Food and service excellent.
It was a great experience! I love the date night special!
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.
First time dining and absolutely deliciousness! Everything was cooked perfectly. Great outdoor environment, COVID friendly and safe.
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.
Amazing as always!
Great service, food and spirits! Excellent service
My server kevin was excellent... My fiance and i were celebrating his birthday and we enjoyed ourselves so much.. And the attentiveness kevin showed us was very nice.. My fiance and i are both restaurant mangers and we were impressed greatly... Thank you steakhouse 85 and kevin for making our experience unforgettable
