Had a filet mignon that was one of the best ever- excellent flavor and fork tender, done to perfection. Service was awesome, attentive but not intrusive.

Very nice starters and steaks very nicely prepared. The atmosphere is quite noisy, waiters pay a lot of attention but are not well educated on wine. Overall good recommendation.

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.
