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.

We have visited this restaurant three times for Friday Date Night which offers full course meals for two for a total of $99. While we usually had the steak, this time we had the Tomahawk Chop which is the most delicious pork chop you will ever eat! Better than the steak! The appetizers, salad... read more

The food here is nice. Been many times. My issue is that there are so many staff, you are constantly having them walking last your table. Totally amazing. I watched them just walk in circles around the tables. Maybe that explains the higher prices?

Definitely one of the best steaks I've had in a long tme! This restaurant was packed the night I came in - a Wednesday - and they certainly know how to cook a filet mignon rare - eaxactly as ordered. The steak was nearly three inches thick, served hot and with the best au poivre sauce ever. Accompanied by brussel... More

This had become my boyfriend & I favorite local steakhouse. As I already mentioned, its a great steakhouse (centrally located in NJ) and without the hassle of NYC commute & attempts to find parking. Filet mignon & lobster mac&cheese are my favorite go-tos and my boyfriend cannot get enough of their truffle oil tater tots & burger. They offer specials... More

Take is from someone who has been to steakhouses galore from Old Homestead to places in Philly and I can assure you this place isn't what it is cracked up to be. We had more then 6 people in the party which called for the 20% added on for a service fee, which is fair, but then when the service... More
