Only U.S.D.A. Prime Steaks are hand selected and custom cut to guarantee the finest in the country. Every day, we contact our seafood purveyors to locate the best and freshest catch, which is then flown in each day. At Peterson’s we firmly believe in supporting local and Indiana grown products. Our Chefs maintain close contact with area farmers to seek out the best of Indiana.

Diner Reviews
  • "I have not had a better steak since the last time I visited Peterson's. If they have any dry aged specials - just do it. You will be very pleased. Need help with a nice wine - ask Jan."

  • "this is a nice restaurant with moderately high prices. i don't think they should permit customers to sit there with baseball caps on like the local wings joint. while i don't think these days one needs to "dress up" this is beyond the line and ruins the ambiance of the restaurant . some form of dress code would make this a good place to repeat."

  • "This is truly a special place. Great knowledgeable wait-staff. Although the chef has changed, the food is always creative and well prepared. The wine list is extensive and up-to-date. Even though it is a bit of a drive it's really worth it."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "Celebrated our anniversary (and a birthday) at Peterson's. Our server (Noel) was fantastic (great suggestions on wine and food)! The food was awesome, and the deserts (both the chocolate cake and the sugar cream pie) were amazing!"
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "This was our 34th anniversary and the staff congratulated us nicely. My husband's dinner was good but my dinner was not. I ate just a couple bites and left the entire meal (halibut). I thought the waiter would notice but he did not. We didn't complain, paid the full bill, and left. Anna Rust"

  • "...for us it is one of the best, if not THE best dining experience we have had in the Indianapolis area in our 15 years living here!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "My husband and I went to Peterson's for our anniversary dinner on Monday night. It was a quiet atmosphere and all the workers were very polite. Our server was attentive and never let our drinks get 1/2 full before they were filled up or we were offered more. We ordered wine and beer to drink and the scallops and double sirloin for dinner. All were fantastic! Would go back on another special occasion."

  • "It seemed like they wanted to rush us out and our waitress wasn't very friendly. She seemed annoyed when we asked questions. The food was good though."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Our dinner was perfect. The filet was so tender and the crab legs delicious. Our waiter was perfect as well. We will return for special occasions."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Service was spotty, food was good but both were not what I would have expected for the price. We asked our waiter for the chef to split a steak, and it caused a issue because " the chef does not like to do that". The manager even came out to tell us that the chef would split a steak, but usually does not. What happened to giving the customer what they want?"

  • "Wonderful!!!!!! The food and servicevis always outstanding. Our favorite place to dine."

  • "Excellent food and service. One of the best restaurants in Indianapolis."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Had a wonderful meal with exceptional quality food, competitively priced with other area steakhouses, but in a quiet, highly personalized atmosphere with exceptionally attentive service. We will definitely return again only maybe not wait for a special occasion!"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Peterson's pricing would make one expect a dining experience similar to Ruth's Chris, for example. Neither the ambiance or the flavor comes close to that standard. Salads were lackluster, dessert was slightly overdone. The steak was a relatively poor cut for the price."

  • "We had a wonderful meal - great ambiance - and terrific service - there when we needed him but not interactive -"

  • "There are very few institutions which retain their initial approach to their endeavors... especially restaurants. Peterson's has been excellent every time I have visited over the years. (The worst visit I ever had at Peterson's was great!) It's such a relief to find Peterson's maintaining their excellence every time I have dinner there. Thank you Peterson's! Please keep it up!!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "My wife and I have dined at Peterson's many times in the past and on every prior occasion the food and service was exceptional. This year we chose to celebrate our anniversary at Peterson's and the experience could not have been more unpleasant. The food was mediocre, the service was inattentive, and we found ourselves wondering how such a fine establishment could have declined so quickly. I don't know if this was just an anomaly or a sign that things have changed at Peterson's."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and the service and food was excellent. We were glad we chose Peterson's for our special dinner. The Hostess took our picture and gave us a copy, a very nice touch."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We went for the first time for an anniversary dinner after receiving a gift card. We got an bottle of wine for $50, 2 entrees, and 2 sides and the bill ran us $140. Our server Kevin was great...very laid back but informative and showed up just enough times to make sure we were taken care of. My only complaint was that for ordering a medium-well filet mine was a little too pink. But, overall, we would return."

  • "Everything was great for Father's Day. The food was excellent and more than plentiful. The service was impeccable. Would definitely dine on Father's day again."

  • "We love this place. We have been many times with friends and clients and the wine menu and selections of food never disappoint. We will go again and again."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Took mom and dad for an early Father's Day celebration while I was visiting from out of town. This place has quickly become our favorite steakhouse as food, service and ambiance are top shelf and an overall great value."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "The service was good, but I was disappointed with the food. I usually have a better dining experience here. "

  • "We went to celebrate a birthday and had a wonderful time. The food is great. The service is very accommodating. It just does not get much better."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "We were seated in front of the Bar & Entrance, not the ambience we were expecting from a place like Peterson's. We felt like we were in an Applebee's except the food was better! After driving 2.5 hrs down to Indy, we expected better!"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We are never disappointed after an evening at Peterson's. The filets are the best in Indy. If you'd rather have seafood, the scallops are fantastic also. Not to mention the many other menu choices. Just a great place to dine with family, friends or clients."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Due to the respect the restaurant has I shall choose to keep that reputation positive although for the price it was not worth it. Have a different favorite restaurant. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "We arrived at 5:30 p.m. on a Monday evening. The restaurant was dimly lit and the main dining area was mostly empty. We had a friendly and attentive server, who thoroughly answered our questions about various menu items. We enjoyed everything we ordered, including the charcuterie plate, wild game sausages, wedge salad, roasted beets, lobster bisque, 8 oz filet with accompaniment. Even the bread rolls and whipped butter were outstanding. One of our complaints is that as the restaurant began to fill in, our server was rarely to be seen. After finishing a wedge salad, we thought entrees were soon to follow. We sat for at least twenty minutes, maybe more, and our server did not offer any updates, apologies, or explanation for the delay."
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "Excellent service despite our server being overly extended. The food was good, but it appeared that the kitchen could not keep up with the demand."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I'm not certain how I could rate this wonderful restaurant on its kid-friendlyness. You have to be 21 to eat here :( I wish I could take my 18-year-old nephew here for wonderful steaks, but I can't. This is my only problem with this restaurant."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "We've been to Peterson's before, but it had been about 4 years. If anything, it's only gotten better with age. The menu is superb and diverse, and every single thing we ordered was perfect. Outstanding service, a quiet atmosphere for a romantic dinner -- simply the best. "
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "I was told I should spend the evening of my birthday at Peterson's. I am so pleased that I took my instructors advice and ate there! My food was remarkably delicious! The waiter was patient and thorough. The ambience was quiet and relaxing. Peterson's is a marvelous restaurant for any occasion. I'm so grateful I had the opportunity to experience the food and also the hospitality."
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "Perhaps you might consider having two prices. I feel that if you ordered additionally from the menu it would be worth the $39, but just eating from stations I think is a bit expensive. Juices should also be included in the cost of the meal."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Good mix of special order entrees and buffet items. Would like gluten free breads or desserts to make it an outstanding choice."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "I was looking forward to brunch at Perersons but I was disappointed. The food was not special like it is while dining in the evening. The waffles were cold, the waiter was sweating, and there was an abundance of people stepping on toes. I would not go back for brunch."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "If you are looking for something different in brunch, this is it! They have the usual cast of characters ++++++++++ Great atmosphere and quieter than most restaurants these days."

  • "We were celebrating a birthday. It was truly a memorable event. The service was superb. The waiter was able to intelligently discuss all the options. He knew the drink options and could suggest alternatives on the wine list. The Oysters Rockefeller brought back memories of Antoine's in New Orleans where they were invented. The scallops are truly their signature dish. They are the best I have ever had. Indianapolis is so fortunate to have such a high quality restaurant."

  • "The Bone in New York Strip was a disappointment. Thin and not much flavor. I was surprised after hearing all the rave reviews from others. "
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "Located next to an interstate and across from fast food joints, this unassuming grey building houses some of the best food I've had anywhere. The wine list is impressive if expensive but their are plenty of excellent affordable options as well. The food is beautifully prepared and presented...and there is not a surfeit of it. They don't try to make you gorge here, just give you reasonable portions of exquisitely prepared food. All the desserts are made in-house and the two we tried were each fabulous. The prices are commensurate with the food and service which is to say, high, but not unreasonably so."
