Description: 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.

I had enjoyed the food, drink and good services. A bit costly but worth it. A well spread of food and beer choices

I was in the mood for a steak and Steakhouse 85 did not disappoint. My petite fillet was cooked perfectly and beautifully seasoned. The couple my husband and I dined with had eaten here many times before and recommended it to us. The manager greeted us upon arrival and seated us in a booth away from the live jazz. (fortunately,... More

My boyfriend and I went for my birthday. I enjoyed everything we tried. We had mussels and scallops for our appetizers, pan seared brussels sprouts with smoked bacon accompanied our steaks perfectly for our entree and delicious lemon gelato for dessert. Our service was wonderful. Our waitress was very informative about the menu. Highly recommend!

Attended a business dinner here in the back room. Service was excellent as well as the food. Salad/appetizer choices were great as well as the desert options. They had a nice bar area, which seemed busy. The appetizers were served by the waiters which added a nice touch of elegance. The deserts were self serve and smaller portions, which is... More

Nice atmosphere with good service. The steaks are well prepared according to order - I have been dining here for the past 4 years and the quality has been consistent.

Just ate there with 2 business associates. I had the petite filet mignon. The other 2 guys had the exact same thing. Mashed potatoes, asparagus and creamed spinach were the sides. Food was tasty, cooked correctly and no service issues.

Wonderful food, but be prepared to eat a lot. Service was ok; some of the staff were bickering with each other just behind our table.

We sat at the bar and wanted to share the massive tomahawk steak between us. The service was good and happy to let us share the steak. The steak and the sauce was delicious, one of the best I've ever had. I asked for Medium Rare it was pretty spot on. I ordered the bacon infused old fashioned which was... More

I enjoyed dinner at Steakhouse 85 in mid-November. I was the only wine drinker at the table so ordered the Zin91 Zinfandel by the glass. It’s a Paso Robles old vine Zin. A very nice, very drinkable wine that I would order again. The bread arrived with a side of olive oil with fresh garlic and thyme – nice touch!... More

We came hear after work to entertain our clients, in total their was twelve of us. As a non-meat eater I was pleasantly surprised there were still some safe options for me like crab cakes, and other seafood options. Pretty much everyone who ordered steak loved it, apart from one colleagues who ordered "medium-well". It was pretty much well done,... More
