A little off this time

I was a little disappointed on my most recent visit following the 2015 Indy 500. While crowded as usual, service was a bit slow. The food was good, but our steaks were only warm. When you pay St. Elmo's prices you expect better.

We went to St. Elmo"s yesterday without a reservation after the Indy 500 race. The hostesses were most helpful and were able to seat us immediately at a table they said was a bit in the middle of the room with a lot of people walking by, but it was really a non-issue. The food was really delicious, the trademark... More

Heard about St Elmo restaurant for years. Top rated in the country. Always heard "you gotta get the shrimp cocktail and Steak". We were in town on business for a conference and went there on a Tuesday. I made a reservation there for myself and co-worker. We arrived early and went upstairs for a shrimp cocktail and drinks. Very traditionally... More

This in my opinion is the best steakhouse I have ever been to. I have people that I do business with in NY want to come to Indiana just to eat at St. Elmo's's. Best food in Indianapolis hands down. Gotta have the shrimp cocktail.

Superb dining experience! The shrimp cocktail and filet were out of this world delicious. Service is top notch. Although the menu is fairly expensive, the food was delicious and overall worth the money for the entire experience.

the restaurant is laid out in an eclectic fashion, with many different areas each with different motif. the food is high quality and cooked well, and with different choices. the shrimp cocktail is worth sampling because it is so spicy hot, but you get used to it. the soups were good and the salads were good. they are really known...

St. Elmo'sis one of the finest establishments I've ever had the pleasure to dine in. The service from the moment you walk in the door is absolutely THE BEST and the quality of the food is wonderful every singl time. Be sure to try the shrimp cocktail to awaken your senses, none other matches anywhere!

St. Elmo has realized there are other options and have discarded the old school dismissive service. Our waiter steered us into a magnum of wine that was a great value and very good. In contrast to the hustle you through atmosphere of not too loing ago, we were given all the time we wanted. I made a reservation on Open... More
