Had a filet mignon that was one of the best ever- excellent flavor and fork tender, done to perfection. Service was awesome, attentive but not intrusive.

Very nice starters and steaks very nicely prepared. The atmosphere is quite noisy, waiters pay a lot of attention but are not well educated on wine. Overall good recommendation.

Great food, great service. Bar area great atmosphere. Parking directly across the street. Very romantic. Sometimes lite jazz. Ask about date night special, great deal.

Food is excellent and rivals a NYC Steakhouse. They have a good lunch menu. The fare includes make your own salads, steaks, burgers, fish, and awesome crabcakes! Desserts are wonderful too. Service was very attentive. Great place to take clients!!!

We came here for a business dinner and it was absolutely phenomenal. The meat cuts and service were great. I had the delMonico aged steak and it was beautiful. What made it even greater were the sides. Altogether a great experience

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.
