A friend recommended this place and when we drove up we were hesitant to go in. The area around it is run down and the restaurant itself is not in the best of shape. But the parking lot was full which is always a good sign. Our waitress was wonderful and not overbearing. I tried their special which was like... More

I liked it better before Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives featured this restaurant. The prices have gone up while the food has stayed the same. I love it here but I like the locals only vibe. If you do go, don't steal my counter spot.

Dined here with friends who live nearby. Restaurant has been here for years. Looks like it used to be a drive-in also, but now only inside service. There were five of us and there was a round table perfect for us. Service was fast and with a smile. Two of us had the three-cheese grilled cheese (delicious if not a... More

We went here after seeing it on Diner’s Drive-in and Dives. It was not what we were expecting when we pulled up. The outside was pretty run down. As we were hitting up a bunch of spots we’d seen on tv, we decided to go in and try it anyways. The inside was also very dated and seemed to not... More

This is the typical greasy spoon in some ways. It isn't fancy, but the food is pretty decent especially for the reasonable price. Plenty of coffee and good hash for breakfast. For dinners the tenderloin is yummy and the beef and noodles shouldn't be missed. Steer In is a fine example of down home comfort cooking. Located at East 10th... More

Decided to stop in as we had seen them on DDD, first impression was to turn back around. Old building, hardly any parking, dirty looking. We were hungry and had driven 9 hours so we decided to stay. Waitress took forever to help us, seemed new, if not sorry to say she should not be working there. We ordered drinks-... More

We've lived here in Indianapolis for many years. Driven past the Steer-In many times (this story sounds familiar). While out and about today we happened to drive by and we returned after our business was finished. Our first impression was that this place has been around for a while. Many folks have passed through these doors & have been served... More

We visit Indy every summer and stop by the Steer In for breakfast each time. I've had a great "diner" meal each time surrounded by the locals. It's a old neighborhood restaurant but worth the visit if you like fresh corn beef hash. The corn the beef, wait a few days, then serve it many different ways throughout the day...YUMMY.... More

We were in Indy to catch a flight and decided to find a DDD location for lunch before heading to the airport. ... After researching the menus of the DDD locations this was the one we selected. We love diners and dives and this one did NOT let us down!! I had a turkey burger with pepperjack which was cooked... More

Steer Inn has been going downhill for some time...last night did it for me. 4 star prices in a 2 star place. A grilled chicken dinner with mashed potatoes and asparagus was $13.99...pretty spendy for a run-down diner. It didn't even include a salad! The salad was another $2.50, and was way smaller than their side salads used to be.... More
