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.

Mo’s is without a doubt the best steakhouse in Houston. This place has a great mix of a formal/casual scene. The inside dining area is elegant and romantic if you are looking for a quite dinner. The inside bar is lively with a hip scene (sometimes with a pianist or a live singer for entertainment) and very plush seating with a large window that wraps around the bar offering a great outside view of the patio and greenery surrounding the patio. The huge outside patio has great seating (for both dining and lounging) with several TV screens strategically placed around the patio so that they do not intrude on guests (not “in your face” sports bar style), but nonetheless, they are there if you want to watch the sporting events (or whatever they happen to be airing at the time). The service is fantastic. Most tables usually have several waiters/waitresses assigned, so you pretty much never go without someone around to get you what you need promptly. The manager or owner always stop by every table to ask how you and your party are doing. The food is also outstanding. They have a large variety of steak cuts and sizes (all of which are cooked to perfection). Their sides are great and large portions. The wedge salad and lobster bisque was delicious. Appetizers are also original and very tasty (especially the kung-pao calamari). They have an extensive wine list. And last, but not least, their desserts are decadent, especially, the Mo’s cookie, which is giant chocolate chip cookie served in a shallow skillet that is crunchy on the outside and gooey heaven on the inside, served warm topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce! It’s phenomenal. This place delivers the 5-star experience. Highly recommended.

This was my first time at Mo's and I was surprised just how busy it was on a Tuesday evening. I was attending a business dinner so we did not have the full menu. Our choices: Filet, Salmon or chicken.

Among the immediate group at our table 3 of us chose the filet and 1 chose the salmon. The salad was crisp and fresh and consensus agreement was that both choices, filet and salmon were excellent. My filet was perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned. Served with wonderfully seasoned and tasting mushrooms, broccoli and mashed potatoes.

About the only down side at Mo's on this evening was that it is incredibly loud, like a constant buzz, but that was because everyone was having a great time and the place was full to the rafters.

Overall, Mo's is A Place For Steaks as it's name perfectly states.

There were four in our party. We decided to try Mo's for the first time, on a Saturday night. We were impressed from the first step into the restaurant until we left. The service was excellent, the drinks were good. I love Filet Mignon, which was $40, but I decided to try the dry rub Kansas City Strip, which was $57. The steak was the best I have every had, the flavor was over the top. All four of us loved the appetizers, the steaks, two had Lobster tails that they described as the best they had every had. For the four of us the bill came to about $500, it was worth every penny. For us, this is a once in a year kind of meal.....wish we could afford it once a month....If you love steaks, splurge and get the dry rubbed KC strip, and ENJOY!

I had the Oscar medallions and the tomato salad, washing it down with a lovely Tuscan red. It made of the perfect end of the day. I left feeling happy and sated.

I ate in the bar, which I do often when traveling. Greg was awesome and very personable. His service was appreciated.

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.
