Valentines Day Disaster

Reservations made weeks in advance. Upon arrival we checked in a few minutes early. We waited until 10 minutes after our time before we checked with hostess again. She said she forgot about us. OK. Then we get to our table and wait for 20 minutes before we go BACK to the hostess stand to see... read more

My husband's aunt lives in Indianapolis so he travels there frequently. We took her to Bynum's for her birthday lunch a couple of days before Christmas. She ordered the small prime rib, my husband had the sirloin tips, and I had the small filet. My husband was the only member of the clean plate club. His aunt and I had... More

My husband and I took our friends out for what we expected to be a very good meal. However, we left a little disappointed. Three of us ordered steak and one had the swordfish (I think that's what it was). Although all the steaks were cooked to order, none of them were hot. Mine was actually too cold to eat... More

I have been here quite a few times and went again today. The prices maybe a bit higher then the chains like Outback and O'Charleys but keep in mind, at Bynums the steaks are 28OZ to 44 OZ plus while at other restaurants you get a choice of either soup or salad, here you get BOTH!!I They do have smaller...

We went to Bynum's on a groupon that was offered for 4 people. I did instruct the others dining with me not to indulge on the more expensive dishes, and I glad I did. Even the 7 oz Strip steak I had was enough for me to eat (and I'm a big guy). I requested the steak to be cooked... More

My husband and I drove 40 minutes to go to Bynum's last Friday for a groupon we purchased. We sat down and got ready to order and I told them we had a groupon that stated $35 for value of $50 to use on anything on the menu, including beverages. We decided we are going to share the yummy looking... More

The steakhouse was highly recommended. We got there and the exterior atmosphere was nice. Fountain and a big cow. Inside is dated since it is an old establishment, dark wood and dark in general. Candle lift on the table. We requested a booth and they looked nice with cloth covered padded seats. WRONG. We both sat down and together wrenched... More

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
