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.

Great service and great food as always. My husband and I love to come here on Fridays for the date night special. For $99 per couple, you get an appetizer, entree, side (to share), dessert, and a bottle of wine. It’s a great deal!

Arrived a little early for our reservation and were seated promptly. Owner seated us and described the specials. The restaurant was busy but our waiter was very attentive. Food was absolutely delicious (as usual). It was a little loud when we first arrived but quieted down after a very large party left the bar area. Love this place.

Went for a Valentines Dinner with the wife and another couple who were first timers. As per, Steakhouse 85 didn’t disappoint. Have been coming here for over 5 years now and it’s the same standard of quality and excellence you come to expect from them. From being seated down in a timely matter for our reservation, to informative waiters, excellent meal pacing, quality of steaks , sides, apps, dessert and wines that were all on point, it was just a great night to be had. Really appreciated the fact we got to introduce new people to my wife and I’s favorite spot and it didn’t disappoint. Cheers to steakhouse 85!

Was out second time at Steak 85 the past month.....we went back for Valentine's Day and it was fantastic!!! Great service without being annoying, never had to look for help but wasn't bombarded either. Steaks were fantastic!!! My wife had to have fish and she was wowed on the salmon with nuts. My steak, medium rare, Pittsburgh-style (charred on the outside, medium rare on the inside) was PERFECT!!!!! WOW onion rings, WOW onion soup, WOW whatever we had for appetizer. GREAT MEAL. IF you love steaks, no need to drive to NY or Princeton, there's a great steakhouse right in New Brunswick.

One of my favorites. High quality steaks for a reasonable price. Half price wine bottles in Sunday’s is also a great perk!

This is our favorite steakhouse. We come about once a month. The food is beyond expectations. If you're not a steak lover you may want to go elsewhere; however I've had their seafood and chicken and everything is top notch. The sides and desserts are wonderful too. Wonderful attentive staff, generous wine list, great atmosphere. We have been there when they've had live music and really enjoyed that.

I have been to very nice steakhouses in NYC and this compares to them. The food was absolutely delicious and worth every penny. The server was very pleasant and knowledgeable. I really enjoyed the fact that we did not feel rushed at all and was able to enjoy every minute of the time spent. We were seated promptly and the atmosphere was pleasant. I cannot wait to visit again!
