Description: Prime 47...Indy's Steakhouse is Indianapolis's only locally owned & operated Prime Steakhouse. In addition to our wonderful steaks we offer a variety a fresh seafood and an extensive wine list. What really sets Prime 47 apart from other Indy steakhouses is our staff. Our servers work in teams of two to ensure that every guests has the Prime Experience. Set in the Majestic Building, Prime 47...Indy's Steakhouse is a site to behold. Built in 1895 for the Indiana Gas Company, this unique building has a lot to offer. From its original tile floors, marble columns and 18-foot windows to view Pennsylvania and Maryland Streets, the atmosphere starts from the ground up. Prime 47 is one of the few downtown Indianapolis steakhouses that features live music nightly.

I was in town for a conference and Mo's was recommended by my hotel. I had high hope for Mo's after looking at the menu....I wish I had checked Tripadvisor before going because I would have chosen one of the higher ranked steak houses. I love Filet Mignon so I ordered the 8oz with Oscar topping and two sides: the Mo's Signature Double Baked Potato and Sautéed Mushrooms.

I ordered my steak medium, but when I received it, it was well done. So they took it back, but when it returned it was rare (cold in the center). I should have just said keep it, but ever the optimist I sent it back again....third time was not a charm, but I ate it anyways because I was starving. Interesting enough they never offered to redo my sides and since it took so long for my steak to come out they were both cold. The mushrooms were good...well before they were cold, but there was nothing special about the Signature Double Baked Potato.

They did offer to give me a free dessert....REALLY???!!! I did not take them up on it. I would say hands down this experience was one of the worst experiences I have ever had.

I love good food, this place is definitely hit and miss....for the price I would recommend skipping it and trying one of the other higher ranked steakhouses downtown.

I love this place, and recommend it frequently! I love a locally owned and operated establishment that offers such great service and wonderful food. It is comparable in price to St. Elmo, but above and beyond other such establishments in quality of food and service. The staff is friendly and professional, the ambiance is tasteful and romantic (in my opinion). They even had a pianist performing on a live piano right at the front which I feel is a great touch. I would certainly bring dates or colleagues to this establishment if you are trying to impress. Again, I would recommend this establishment to anyone looking for dinner within this price point.

Ambiance is awesome--best filet in the city. Not a cheap date place though. :-) Rich interior without being uppity/stuffy.

I had the pan-seared fish (can't remember the species). I was good but not a lot there for the $34. Sides are separate from entrees and big enough for two. Good place, but expect to spend a pretty penny.
