Visited for work with a vendor. We were seated in a private area in the wine cellar. Great setting and wonderful service thanks to Bill. The food was great, especially the cocktail sauce on the shrimp cocktail and the steaks. It's not cheap, but it was a nice experience.

Alright I dined at this steak house and was not impressed. We were rushed through dinner and other tables eavesdropped on my business discussion, While I understand the emotional connection for dining locals, the place was packed and the food was average. On business I have recently fined in Vegas and Chicago and honestly the steaks were superb at other... More

This place is legendary and deserving of the legend. Great atmosphere. Our group had a private dining room. Superb service. Perfectly prepared and presented food. Shrimp Cocktail is a MUST! You simply cannot come to Indianapolis and not eat here.

this was a great place to enjoy a perfectly done aged rib eye, great soup, green beans and beer; and oh yes incredible shrimp cocktail. It's rather pricy, but it's great atmosphere, attentive staff, and a bit of history to enjoy. Valet parking is cheap, but get there early or you end up waiting for a table.

Go on a Sunday night for $40 prix-fixe. You can still get the Famous Shrimp Cocktail, Filet Mignon and dessert. We also got a nice bottle of wine, not too badly overpriced (about double what you pay in a retail wine shop). We added the Creamed Spinach and it was by far THE BEST ever !!! Large slice of NY...

I've eaten here 4 or 5 times. The steaks are always very good. This a a traditional steak house with professional waiters. On this night the service started a little slow (we were in a room with a very large table) but ramped up to expectation. Try the shrimp cocktail if you like spicy sauce- it'll make you cry. This...

I'd heard that this was one of the best restaurants in Indianapolis. Was in town for a long weekend and decided to try it out. Everything was top notch! Everything from the bread to the soup to the steak was out of this world! The steak was the best I've ever had (and I don't throw that compliment around lightly),... More

Four of us went to St. Elmo's for our son's 20th birthday. My wife and I split the fillet and it was the best steak we have ever enjoyed at St. Elmo's. The other features, such as the shrimp cocktail, was reliably great. The service was also just right - enough without overbearing. Overall, an outstanding experience!
