Nice wood decor. The owner seated us and told us the specials and menu. Very nice and professional. Our server was very attentive but every server in our area would come by and refill our water, bring more bread, take empty plates away, etc. they servers all seem to work as a team. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and I... More

Tough. We were there the other night, reluctant to go due to the price. Expensive. Expensive read excessive. Expensive says to me, high quality and a elegant experience. I had the Caesar Salad, nice and tasty. The stake I ordered was medium rare. I like a stake with some live in it. It was cooked as I asked, but tough.... More

My wife and I truly enjoyed our dining experience at SteakHouse 85. We were seated by a very classy debonair gentlemen who reminded me of Frank Sinatra and he had a great personality. He told us the name of our server and away he went with a smile. Our server Marko was very professional. I had the roasted porkchop and... More

Where else can you get a salad made to order right down to the type of lettuce you want? If you order a salad you get a piece of paper with a list sorted into different categories to choose from, You chose what you want in your salad from each section without restrictions. including what type of lettuce you want...

Ate here in May this year. Have to say the waitress on our table was more than capable of attending to the 10 or so diners on our table. She knew the menu off by heart & was able to explain in detail the various meats, how they were cooked & what would go best with each dish. The steaks... More

This is a place that offers great, if not legendary steaks. It has a nice ambience and broad selection of dishes. We came for the steaks and they did not disappoint, being large, tasty and juicy.

The best steak around by far. A bit pricey but for special occasions I would definitely recommend. It's not often that you can go to a restaurant, ask for your steak cooked medium rare and actually get medium rare. The service is excellent and the ambiance is fantastic, especially in the winter when the fireplace is going!

The food is very good uniformly, but oh so pricy. Places like this are great for business, but not my cup of tea personally. Although they push it as the best, the Delmonico is too thin to provide a real medium rare center of and thickness and a little tough. Go for a thicker cut of meat. Sides were good... More

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.

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.
