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.

“Horrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2008

Went here for dinner with my husband this past weekend. First off they sat us way in the back of the restaurant near an exit door. Not impressed since it wasn't busy at the time. We sat down at 6pm and were out the door by 6:50pm. We each ordered steak which came with salads. My salad had so much dressing on it that it was drowning in dressing. My steak came literally 10mins later. It was horrible. Not quality at all. I get a better steak at Marsh supermarket. We ordered the roasted potatoes which had no flavor at all. The onion rings were good. The only edible thing on the menu. Oh buyer beware of this trick. My husband ordered a salad with blue cheese dressing. They asked if he would like blue cheese crumbles. He said yes...ha ha ha and charged up 3 more dollars without saying. Nice trick. My martini was not good at all either. For 130.00 without the 10 valet please don't go here. Go to Eddie Merlots, Sullivans, Oceanaire. So much better.

“Bad Service, Noisy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2005

To start out with the positives, the decor of the restaurant is beautiful, with high ceilings, large cherry wood columns and arched stained windows. The food is very tasteful and arrived in a timely fashion. However, all other aspects of the environment are very unpleasant especially for the menu prices. The piano music is everything but soothing as a result of the horrible percussion in the building which echoed the piano music, the conversation of the customers and the radio which was projecting from low clarity wall mounted speakers. The service was also disappointing.... Our waitress had a helper to assist her with our six person party, yet we were ignored for about fifteen minutes when trying to order our entrees in the non-crowded restaurant at 10:30pm. Our request to lower the radio music was rudely ignored, and we were wrongly informed of how our food was to be prepared. The staff held loud conversations and were not very welcoming. Unfortunately, the 18% gratuity was automatically taken into account on the bill so poor service still received a nice tip.
