Met friends here during recent business trip to Indianapolis. Excellent menu with steak, seafood, pasta choices, assorted starters & sides, and an extensive wine selection. Classic & inviting atmosphere. Enjoyed pork chops, mashed potatoes, and home-made onion rings. Service was a little spotty - our waiter seemed distracted and wasn't as attentive as other servers milling about. But we thoroughly... More

Excellent restaurant! The same quality as St. Elmo's, but with an expanded menu. I had the 4th best steak I've ever had at Harry and Izzy's. Pricey, the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars.

It seems these days with the TSA, and tighter security, what may have been fast is now snails pace. Harry and Izzy's at the Airport, can give you a break from all that. Good food, and a comfortable atmosphere (for an airport) A fair selection, and good service.

With locations on the Northside, airport and downtown, each place has the same great steak, shrimp cocktail. Our favorite is the Garbage Salad which we often split.

I can't say enough good things about Harry and Izzy's! Whether you visit downtown or on the north side of Indy, the food is wonderful and the atmosphere is stunning. A bit pricy for the everyday dining experience but perfect for a special occasion. Props to them for being food allergy conscious and going out of the way to make... More

We couldn't get into St. Elmo's so settled for it's younger sibling next door. I'm not sure if they share a kitchen but the signiture shrimp cocktail and steak seem like they do. The decor is neat and the service was impeccable. The potato pancakes were good, The pie ala mode wonderful. My only gripe is the watery espresso. I'd... More

I was hoping that this was going to be different than many other big-town steakhouses. A little disappointing. There's nothing bad about it, but nothing particularly special. Not sure about the changes of levels in the restaurant? Makes for an interesting trek to the restroom after a couple of glasses of wine.

I wouldn't eat here again for free. This high end steak was something other than Prime. I ordered a Key Club cut of the bone-in ribeye. I got a chuck end cut and it tasted like it, like chuck steak. But, by this time, I had so had it with this restaurant I ate the small amount of rib end... More

Fantastic food and overall experience. Brittany was our server and she is excellent. Request her section if you can. She explained everything and was quite entertaining. Loved the shrimp cocktail, and there is more horse radish than tomato sauce in the cocktail sauce so go slow! recommend the onion rings, prime rib sandwich and killer brownie dessert.
