Went to St Elmos during Indianapolis Devour Downtown.. The shrimp cocktail is not for a person who doesn't like it a little hot.. My husband loves the Shrimp but I prefer a salad.. The filet and the NY Strip just melted in your mouth.. The green beans, potatos and cheesecake were all yummy..

Great Steak, but you have to order their signature Shrimp Cocktail. Beware though as it is loaded with horseradish and is great!! If you are headed to Indianapolis make reservations in advance as this restaurant is always busy. Eric was my most recent waiter and he took great care of my group.

Beautiful, old-guard steakhouse in downtown Indy. Had the world-famous shrimp cocktail (how can Indianapolis be famous for shrimp?) but it was seriously awesome--would put it up against anything with a view of the Gulf in a heartbeat. (Beware the cocktail sauce, though--delicious and sinus-clearing!). But the beef. OH the beef. Had a ribeye (special that night) that had been dry-aged for 30 days and then wet-aged for 30 days. Cooked flawlessly medium-rare, it was the most intense plate of beef nirvana I have ever, EVER had, anywhere. This place isn't necessarily cheap, but sometimes quality is worth it--and this is one of those times. Go. Enjoy. Thank me later.

Maybe we expected too much, but it didn't live up to the hype. The service was outstanding, but the food was not. The shrimp cocktail was good, but not worthy of the high price. The steaks were overseasoned with pepper but cooked to perfection. The creme brûlée had very little flavor. Very expensive restaurant and the food quality should reflect that.

We had cocktails, appetizers, dinner and dessert. The famous shrimp cocktail was great and the sauce extremely hot, as we were pre-warned. Even though the restaurant was crowded, we were seated immediately and the service was great. The drinks were on the strong side and most enjoyable,. My son and daughter-in Law took my wife and I there to celebrate my birthday.
