Three of us tried the new Ironworks location for the Northside Nights promotion. The food was excellent as was the service. The place is huge !! It also has a large patio with very tall heaters. We wanted to reserve one of their private rooms for Christmas but they were already booked- nine months... read more

The best steaks anywhere! The service is excellent and genuine...no phony attitudes here. The sides are excellent, fresh tasting. For that special event/day, worth every penny! One issue, we had reserved one special table...it was set for our party of six...and as we were about to be led to that table, someone (obviously more important than us) asked for that... More

Ruth's Chris is always a favorite place for a special occasion dinner. We haven't ever had a bad dinner there. And the new location is beautiful. So nice to go when the weather is good so you can dine outside!

This place nailed it. Each year we do a large dinner in Indy during February. We have tried St Elmo's and Weber Grill in the past. This place put them to shame. Food was amazing. Nothing more to say. I hope we get to go back here next year.

This place really does a great job with service and for celebrating special occasions. I let them know when I made my reservation that we were celebrating a belated birthday for my wife and a nice weekend away from our kids. Our server did a great job wishing my wife a happy birthday and asking us about our special weekend... More

Great food, friendly staff. The bar area is a cozy area to eat and enjoy the piano music. Always well prepared and great drink menu.

We went because of a pass we won, and were very surprised not just by how good the steak was, which we had heard about, but the desserts were amazing and we took several home. Also, the staff was incredible, super friendly, talking to us the whole time.

A visit to Ruth's Chris has become an annual affair on mine and a friends birthday each year. Last nights visit was excellent as usual. Outstanding shrimp cocktail (cocktail sauce packing more heat, yumm). Filet cooked to perfection with creamed spinach and garlic mashed potatoes and topped off with creme brûlée . Our server was Dianna and she was great.... More
