Date was excellent at this restaurant. Conveniently situated right across the parking garage, the restaurant offers a good range of oysters and meats. Service is excellent. Very attentive and allows time to enjoy the different courses. We will be going back for sure! Tip - when making a reservation, ask for a table away from the bar. Can get busy... More

Steakhouse85 is on Church Street in central New Brunswick. Parking is an issue. There is a parking garage on the other side of Church Street that may be your best bet. The dining area has many photos related to Rutgers sports. We were in a private dining area toward the back, which was long and narrow, and not necessarily so... More

Remains a standard in the area. NYC type steakhouse with equivalent prices. Beef and seafood are both good quality and prepared fine. Nothing goes beyond the standard though. The bacon appetizer is overrated And the fried calamari is not as good as found in most NJ strip mall pizza places.

This is a go-to restaurant for family special occasions, celebrations, and 'just because' special outings. The food is delicious and served in nice-size portions. My husband and I often order from the date night menu offered on Fridays or Mondays. The offerings are what we would order from the regular menu, but the restaurant is flexible and accommodating if you... More

We had a business lunch meeting and had a very good experience at Steakhouse 85. The service was excellent; our server was very sincere and gave us perfect, professional service. It was quite cold in the restaurant, we mentioned it to the server, and the manager came right to the table to offer to move us in case the heat... More

We had eaten here when they first opened and were sorely disappointed at the time. Let's just skip the details of that fiasco of indifferent service and poor quality food. We wrote them off our list of dinning choices. We came back with friends who had invited us to join them - their treat. This time all went well. We... More

Met some friends for dinner. Hostess was very friendly and waiter was very attentive to our needs. The food was amazing. Had the shrimp cocktail for an appetizer. The shrimp were huge. It was a meal in itself. Had the filet mignon. It was the best I ever had. Very flavorful. My husband had the cowboy rib eye with the... More

Decided to try this place with my hubby for date night. I was very impressed with the selection of cuts, but especially with the waiter's knowledge of where the meat was sourced. It is very important for me to know where it came from and how the animals were raised; getting the answers showed me just how much pride they... More

We had a dinner with colleagues and business partners. Wanted to get something special and Steakhouse 85 did it!! We decided to share several dishes between diners and got a seafood plates as starter (shrimps, crab, shellfish and oysters) and then ordered a few different steaks. All the food was perfect and fresh, service was just right - attentive waiter... 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. 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.
