This lovely restaurant is a hidden gem! We were visiting Indy and our daughter recommended it. You almost laugh when you pull into the parking lot. There are 3 pretend cows in the front - which make quite an easy landmark to find the place since they are situated in a residential area. As soon as you enter the foyer,... More

We visited Bynum's for the first time a few days ago. We were extremely disappointed. The service was poor. We waited a long time for our food. Once our steaks arrived the waitress left never to check back to see if our food was okay. My steak was supposed to be cooked medium it was not. It was well done... More

The first time I went was for my friends birthday and I like the way they just give you enough time in between the soup and salad and then the meal comes.. The onion soup is yummy.. it doesn't have all the cheese and stuff that most crock style onion soups have but it was good.. Steak was tender as... More

Hands down best tasting steak I have ever had!!! I had the bone- in ribeye by the way..... My salad was so good also with the little cup of nuts sprinkled on and the ranch dressing was delicious! Waitress was so sweet and attentive as well... Our glasses were never empty! We will most definitely go back in the future!:)

I wrote a really bad review for this place a couple of years ago. We went back this past Mother's Day and they had changed the bad things I had written about. The beef was good quality and trimmed. The service was professional and prompt. I enjoyed the experience and will definitely put this place back onto our favorite lists.... More

They have the best Prime Rib in the state and they are the second best steakhouse in the city. Big portions and a relaxed atmosphere. A little out of the way and the big cows look funny, but worth it.

Bynum's is a yearly stop on our trips to the Indy 500. Everyone orders steaks and like most steaks some are better than others. Wait staff did a nice job. Soup and salad come with your meal. It is a regular stop each year and we certainly will be back.

We we there on a Saturday night and they were extremely busy. We waited about 30 minutes for a table. The service was great. The potato skins were amazing but my steak was nothing to brag about. I would go back.

Bynum's is a long established restaurant located on the south side of Indianapolis. It had been awhile since I had been there and my wife had never been so after mentioning it she suggested we make the 30 minute drive on a recent Saturday night. We had made reservations for 6:30 and even though we arrived a bit early we... More

First time to Bynum's was a real treat. The food and the service was perfect and the causal atmosphere added to the overall experience without pretention. The portion size is very substantial and with nice salad, soup and all sorts of appetizers, you will not leave hungry, you will leave with a nice take home meal for two.
