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.

Nice atmosphere with good service.

The steaks are well prepared according to order - I have been dining here for the past 4 years and the quality has been consistent.

“Pretty good place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

Just ate there with 2 business associates. I had the petite filet mignon. The other 2 guys had the exact same thing. Mashed potatoes, asparagus and creamed spinach were the sides. Food was tasty, cooked correctly and no service issues.

“Generous portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

Wonderful food, but be prepared to eat a lot. Service was ok; some of the staff were bickering with each other just behind our table.

“Tomahawk steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We sat at the bar and wanted to share the massive tomahawk steak between us. The service was good and happy to let us share the steak. The steak and the sauce was delicious, one of the best I've ever had. I asked for Medium Rare it was pretty spot on. I ordered the bacon infused old fashioned which was equally good and tasted great.

“This is a Steakhouse!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014

I enjoyed dinner at Steakhouse 85 in mid-November. I was the only wine drinker at the table so ordered the Zin91 Zinfandel by the glass. It’s a Paso Robles old vine Zin. A very nice, very drinkable wine that I would order again. The bread arrived with a side of olive oil with fresh garlic and thyme – nice touch! I started dinner with the baby spinach salad. I love fresh baby spinach and this salad did not disappoint. It was loaded with hard boiled egg and crispy bacon. My entrée was the smaller filet. Cooked to perfection, this steak was juicy, flavorful, tender and delicious. Mashed potatoes on the side. Everything was great but the star of the meal was the steak. Maybe a little pricy for some but you pay for this kind of quality. Outstanding service and a warm comfortable atmosphere. Highly recommended
