“Lived up to previous reviews”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Everything I read about St Elmo from TripAdvsor were absolutely true when it came to this restaurant. I had dinner there with 3 friends and it was wonderful. The Shrimp Cocktail lived up to its reputation. The lobster bisque and navy bean soup were also a hit. The star of the show were Strip Steaks and Filet. Both were cooked to perfection. If this is your first visit in Indianapolis this is a must restaurant to experience.

“Great as usuall”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

This was a great restaurant before Indianapolis was a nice place to visit, before they had pro sports. Now indianapolis is a great place to visit with lots of good restaurants but St. Elmo is still at the top of their game. You don't have to be a steak lover to like the place everything is good, great fish and veggie dishes. But lets face it the steaks are better than in most other expensive steak houses.

“Just wonderful”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Always great service and great food. It's the one steak house that can prepare a steak better than we can at home. Too often we leave a restaurant thinking we cook better but not at St. Elmo's.

“Perfect for our 12th Anniversary!”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

We visited on a Sunday afternoon having made reservations first. There was a custom printed anniversary greeting at our table when we arrived. We ordered the 3 course Sunday special which included the shrimp cocktail, salmon or filet and creme brulee for dessert. Everything was 5 star and the service is spectacular. THAT SHRIMP COCKTAIL. Wow!!!!! Be sure to have your camera ready when someone at your table takes their first bite!!

“The downtown steak place.”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

St. Elmo has been the steak and shrimp cocktail place for decades.

Male coal memories are made in this quaint cozy restaurant.

The steaks are good. Consistently perfect. Not much seasoning. Anything you order - you will be pleased.
