Took family out for our first visit to this restaurant. Our waitress was helpful navigating us through the specials and menu.Everyone ordered the 7 oz. Filet. Cooked according to specification, it was tendered and delicious as aged beef should be. Desert options were numerous. We found this iconic South side venue lived up to it's reputation.

When I reminisce about my hometown, the first thin that comes to mind is Bynums. I dont care if the decor is 80s, I go there for the meat. We are relocating back to Indy soon, and one of the prerequisites is that our home be located as close as possible to Bynums. Best steak in Indy, best steak in... More

Since 1983 this restaurant has served great steaks in a fun family atmosphere. If you are in Indy, avoid the big names and huge prices for a steak place downtown and visit Bynum's. This restaurant is a little rustic inside and out and has changed little in 30 years! This is an Indy institution not to be overlooked just 4... More

Returned to Bynums for Saturday evening dinner during trip to the "500" Things are still as they have been on every visit to this long time favorite. For a good steak, it is hard to beat Bynums, In my opinion, you get a quality cut and proper prep. on par with St Elmos downtown for half the price. You can't... More

I'm not sure why others have given this restaurant bad ratings, because our recent visit was excellent. We had a large group of 20 to celebrate my 50th birthday. We chose Bynum's as we had not been there in over 15 years and wanted a good steak. First off, we arrived about 15 minutes early and were seated immediately. Our... More

On my first date with a sweet guy, we went to this place. The service was great. My date got a steak, with bourbon glaze and was disappointed...but loved the steak fries. I ordered the tilapia and broccoli. That was delicious. The atmosphere was nice in that we went during the week so it was peaceful and enjoyable. I was... More

The filet was great and cooked just right. The salad was a little sparse, but since the steak was so big, it didn't bother me too much. Our server was friendly and attentive. This is the second time we ate at this Bynum's and we definitely go back.

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 if there may be... More
