We have been here several times and each and every experience was top notch. Whether it's the scotch menu, the meat selection or the music, it is always done with class and style. The service staff is well trained and knowledgeable. The meats are always done to perfection and the sides are sumptuous and generousness.

Recently went on a Saturday night with another couple to celebrate three birthdays. Our experience was absolutely wonderful. Our table was waiting for us when we arrived. The jazz trio was playing great tunes and the atmosphere was what you would expect on a typical lively Saturday night. The wait staff was very efficient and attentive, even for a Saturday... More

From soup to nuts this restaurant was nothing short of incredible. We had the french onion soup & lobster bisque along with the tangy shrimp appetizer....my son ordered it with the sauce on the side, no issue and it was the best shrimp he'd ever had. We all got a steak with a few Surf & Turf entrees, the steaks... More

I took my wife here for our date night, not knowing that Steakhouse 85 had a special. I'm pretty sure it was appetizers, dinners, a dessert and wine for $100. Everything was good, and for the money was a great deal for the area it's in.

A group us had arranged a dinner at Steakhouse 85 and we had the use of a large room. They had prepared a limited menu for us but with great choices.my table preferred the filet mignon and it was an excellent choice. The service was excellent without any long waits.

Went there to have a nice steak and I had a nice steak :) unfortunately we waited almost 45 minutes between the aperizers and the entree. A bit to much for any restaurant standard. I would go back in anycase, maybe not on Sarurday night.

I have been here a few times, always for happy hour, and I love it. Great vibe, knowledgeable bartenders and great happy hour prices. I love getting a glass of wine, a couple orders of oysters and just relaxing after work. Would highly recommend if that's what you're in the mood for.

Invited to help my friend celebrate her 60th birthday at an intimate luncheon. Music played softly in the well-lit cozy room with white linen table cloths and traditional place settings. The choice of chicken, beef, pork or fish which was served at the same time to everyone was hot and perfectly seasoned. The side orders of potatoes and vegetables were... More

Went to Steakhouse 85 today for lunch. Had one of the best hamburgers I have had in a while. The burger was cooked perfectly and tasted great. The wait staff was very attentive and on point. I would certainly go back again, and next time, I'll go try dinner. Great place, but parking was limited in New Brunswick.
