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.

Always a great experience. The food is great and they do not skimp on the portions. It's not cheap but if you're looking for a top tier steakhouse and don't want to travel to NYC (or pay NYC prices), then this is the place to go. The staff is always very knowledgeable and they have great specials, like the $99 dinner for two on Mondays and Fridays or half-off bottles of wine on Sundays. Their steaks are always cooked perfectly. I like them so much I've yet to try anything else after half a dozen visits. My wife and I use this as our go-to special occasion venue. Highly recommended.

Restaurant was supurb. Waiters were friendly, knowledgable and hustled. Even those the kitchen was backed up, the wait staff and managers went around to make sure you were comfortable. The food came out hot and prepared ask you requested.

As usual the food and atmosphere were perfect. Matty the owner and Paul our server made our dining experience a pleasure as usual. Date night special is a bargain.

Bacon appetizer was simply amazing. Words can't describe it. Our entrees were delicious, as well. You get what you pay for here. The only downside to the dining experience was that the live music was quite loud, and it made it difficult to have a conversation across the table. We will definitely go back, but on a night they don't have music.
