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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
