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.

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

After a little mix up with our reservation, the manager made sure they accomodated our party of five. Our meal was great as usual, as was the service. This place has never let me down.

Delighted to find a steakhouse similar to The Capital Grille but not part of a chain. Terrific selection of oysters as appetizer, though the wines by the glass could have wowed me a bit more.

I reviewed several steakhouse reviews and this one was the best. Beautiful restaurant and well worth every penny you spend. Service outstanding, location outstanding, food outstanding. The best I every had (The Tomahauk). I would go back their in a minute and would highly recommend my friends visit them.

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
