“Five * Food & Service”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Top of the line service and food. The shrimp cocktail sauce was as advertised, and the fillet was to die for. Won't go back it Indy without stopping at St. Elmo's!

“One of the Best Steak Houses”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

When I stepped into St. Elmo's Steak House, I felt like I had stepped back in time. This is an old world steak house with excellent service and food.

The onion rolls are delicious and truly unique. The filet mignon melted in my mouth. This was one of the best steaks I have ever eaten and I live in Chicago!

“When you want a REAL STEAK!”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

I love St. Elmo's. It is alwyas top on my list when Devour Downtown is running - Amazing food, excellent price! The shrimp cocktail is to die for - but is not for the sensitive mouth person!

“Excellent meal, service and atmosphere. Everything is done top notch here!”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Enjoyed an amazing meal here. Started off with the famous shrimp cocktail with the very hot cocktail sauce. Moved on to the navy bean soup (included with the meal). Also very good. A little bit of added pepper and it was perfect.

For the main course everyone in te party had te NY strip prepared medium. Came out perfect, full of flavor....

Bread pudding for dessert was great.

Finished the night with a your of the wine cellar. Great night and I would highly recommend this place.

Yes it is pricey but it was worth it.

“"The" Spot to Dine in Indy!”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Foodies will love this historic restaurant located in the heart of the city! The Old World ambiance sets the tone for a business meeting or that intimate dining experience with that special someone. Excellent!
