The wine list here is awesome, the bartenders are great and it’s nice that the owner walks around and checks on everyone. The food is delicious and they take good care of those with celiac disease. Lots of gluten free/wheat free options!

Great meal and menu selections. Gets crowded...understandably because the food is excellent. I was here with a group of 10 people and everyone was very satisfied with the food, service, and wine.

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.
