I'd always heard how good the steak was at St. Elmo's, but it was beyond phenomenal. The first rate service and clubroom atmosphere made for a great evening out.

I struggle giving St. Elmo anything more than a 3 star rating. The food just isn't that good, except for the shrimp cocktail. Well, even that isn't that good, the cocktail sauce is great, the shrimp themselves, blah.

Steaks here are mediocre. They don't serve prime beef, unless it's a special. Sides are the standard large issue beans, mushrooms, mac+cheese, whatever....

The wine list however is spectacular. Best in the state of Indiana. Broad and deep with some great selections but pricey IMO.

Service is terrific. Ambiance is historic, but the food.......especially a steak house with such a reputation, should have better steaks.

Did not dissapoint. A great steak, and I love the sinus clearing shrimp cocktail! Service efficient, maybe a bit impersonal.

Ate there Saturday night, the service was great but the quality of my porterhouse steak was terrible. I have never complained about a steak in my life untill then. I ordered it med-rare, the fillet side was fair to good, but the new york side was so tough i could hardly cut through it.They did take it back and cooked me a Fillet which was fair yet a bit tough also. Might I suggest they find a new meat vendor. I understand they dont advertise their meat as prime, but I sure would expect choice, the piece I had tasted like select grade. I also expect a mixed drink for the price they charge would be 14 oz glass. They shrimp cocktail was very good.

Hot! Take your breath away hot. Everyone knows about, but only the lucky have experienced the shrimp Cocktail at St. Elmo Steak House. For starters it can't be beat. The delicious, mouthwatering aged steaks and sides fully compliment the old style decor. Location can't be beat for the hub of all early to mid-evening activity. Easy walking to all center city hotels. Politicians, the rich, the famous and just plain folk choose it as the best. Reservations a must.
