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 backbone of our menu is without a doubt our beef. Our mouth-watering dry-aged steaks are rubbed with a simple, yet luscious, a 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.
We are the official Steakhouse of Rutgers Athletics
The Kitchen at Steakhouse 85 is overseen by executive chef and CIA graduate Brian Karluk. He works with a team that has been with him for over 10 years.
The restaurant is owned by Matthew Terranova who runs and oversees the operation with his loving and hospitality-driven daughter Karyn Terranova. One key to the success of this establishment is the family atmosphere we aim to provide on a day-in and day-out basis. It is spearheaded by the patriarch "Matty" (as many of his customers know him). Having owned and operated the popular East Brunswick Fish Market for 30+ years, Matty developed a cult-like following of customers who knew him as having a first-class operation that would always have the freshest fish around, which can be found on our menu.
