“Classy atmosphere and Excellent Meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I was extremely pleased with my experience at Harry and Izzy's. It had a classically unique air about it and I can't think of any complaints. The waitress was a sweetheart and the steaks were incredible! Will be coming back here again for sure

“FIRST CLASS STEAKS!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

A friend in the Indianapolis area, Amy Watson, recommended Harry and Izzy's when I said I was looking for the best steak. I was not disappointed. This is a sister restaurant of the neighboring St. Elmo's Steakhouse.

Great beer selection of local faves on draft. The rolls were absolutely delicious...almost addictive all on their own. I was smart enough to ask the server for her recommendation and she nailed it. I took her suggestion and got a 12oz filet...Izzy style (rolled in peppercorn and a sweet sauce). Now, I was going to order the 8oz filt but she told me the 12oz is located in the more tender area of the cow so I went with that. When it was delivered to the table, I was shocked. This steak had to be two inches thick. I asked for it to be cooked medium and it was. It was so tender, I could practically cut it with my butter knife. The steak was about $47 on its own plus a few bucks more for Izzy style. I only wished I had taken a picture of the steak!

Well worth the visit!! I just wish there was a Harry and Izzy in Delaware. Thanks Amy Watson for suggesting this place. It was the best steakhouse ever.

Wonderful fixed menu lunch menu that allowed my friends and I to experience world-famous shrimp cocktail and a filling lunch for $20. Yummy!

“St Elmos, but different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

I preferred the vibe here versus St Elmos. More relaxed, a little more modern, a little less "good old boys club.". Shrimp cocktail was as good as next door. Filet was one of the better I have had in a while and the rolls were quite good. I didn't do any sides, unless a Grey Goose with blue cheese olives counts. I'd love to come again with a larger group and try some of the other apps and side dishes. Service was great and it didn't break the bank.
If you're in Indy for the first time go to St Elmos. If you get there often save yourself the headache and get comparable food at Harry and Izzys.
And grab a few bottles of cocktail sauce to go! Spicy!
