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 have only been here for the $99 Date Night special. I highly recommend this deal. A bottle of wine, appetizers, entrées, side and deserts for 2 people for $99. The steak and pork chops are delicious, juicy and well seasoned. The service is very attentive and the place is clean.

You know you are at a place that matters when Gov. Christie arrives for dinner. Really. He was very accommodating and must have had his picture been taken with various patrons at least 50 times! The applewood bacon, crab cake, and lime shrimp apps are as good as you will find anywhere; truly exceptional! Bread was fresh and hot and... More

If you are looking for an amazing dining experience, this is a must go! Best crab cake I've had in NJ. The service exceeded my expectations. As my party and I approached the entrance, the host greeted us and took our jackets off. When it was time to be seated, the waiter pulled out our chairs. The place is impeccable... More

We went to Steakhouse 85 for the first time and it was a delight to have such a great steak dinner without having to travel to NY. We have been to Peter Lugar, Porterhouse in the Time Warner Center and several others. We have walked past this restaurant many times and finally checked it out in Zagat. So glad we... More

Celebrated or 25th Anniversary. We were treated like Royalty, from the hostess to the wait staff (Jenn and Dan). One of the best meals I ever had, Delmonico steak was fabulous, drinks were amazing and the atmosphere was terrific. Now that we have been once we will return time and again. Big thank you to Matty and all of his... More

My husband and I went here a couple of times. The first time we were there (years ago), I ordered a filet mignon and he ordered the tomahawk steak. I always thought the filet was the best steak to have. I was wrong. The dry aged tomahawk had the most amazing flavor to it. The sides were delicious and the... More

I've walked by Steakhouse 85 several times, and from the outside it always appear a tad "stuffy" and a little bit "daunting" to me. I couldn't have been more off base! I recently went with 2 friends of mine, one of whom had been there several times. Our server was extremely friendly and even put up with us "newbies" gasping... More

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!
