St. Elmo Steak House
YumGreat place for adults, but not for children. There isn't anything on the menu for children and the atmosphere isn't meant for them.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Shrimp Cocktail!The shrimp cocktail was amazing and so was my steak. Our server was great and very attentive. I'll absolutely go back next time i visit Indianapolis!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWhy would anyone go any placeWhy would anyone go any place else for steak in Indy?5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent steak!The most tender steak ever! Couldn't say much about any other item on menu because the steak is all I wanted! Entree did not include side salad, which surprised me.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMbest service everalways heard about it, pricey, and worth every penny.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Experience!My wife and I have eaten at St. Elmo's many times and it has always exceeded our expectations. Great Sunday Specials if you wish to save a few bucks. Don't pass this up if you are in Indy.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food & ServiceeThe title says it all. Somewhat noisy where we were seated.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSt. Elmo'sWhat can you say other than fantastic as usual. The staff makes the dining experience memorable. The food speaks for itself.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!We made a reservation for 10 to celebrate a family member's graduation from medical school. Though we hadn't requested it, St. Elmo's seated us in a private dining room that was just the right size for our group. When we arrived, there was a congratulatory note on the table and the room was perfect. We were able to enjoy a wonderful family dinner together and our waiter, Eric, was great. A wonderful experience overall and we will certainly be back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great time!Everything was amazing! The only thing I would say needs improvement would be the attitude of the lady who called to confirm the reservation. When I was asked if it would be possible to add one more guest, I was told I would have to move my reservation from 9pm to 1030pm and that it would be impossible to add another individual. It wasn't that I couldn't add another individual, I was OK with that since it was within 24 hours of the reservation, but she just seemed irritated and didn't even ask if I had any other questions. Finally, even though I was told it would be impossible to add another person, they seated my party of 6 at a table for 10. I'll still be going back but from now on, I'll be over stating the number of guests.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful as usual. Get moreWonderful as usual. Get more comfy chairs - back with people with having back problems esp after 2 back surgeries in 6 months.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAll around great job!Our server Mark was excellent. Food was fantastic!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Group DinnerOur group of 7 thoroughly enjoyed our dinner on a Thursday night. The place was packed and had a great atmosphere. The table shared 3 of the shrimp cocktails; they were great! The steaks were top-notch as was the service. Our waiter gave great recommendations when asked and was right on top of our needs. We will definitely be recommending St. Elmo to friends who will be traveling to Indianapolis soon.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMStill the best steak around!St. Elmo's has been an Indianapolis icon for years. The service and food still impress. Start with their famous shrimp cocktail (hint: cut the heat of the cocktail sauce with a Hendrick's martini) for the "true" St. Elmo's experience and the filet is still the best I've ever tasted. We have been going there for years and can't wait to go back.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMNew to IndyWe just bought a house in Indy and to celebrate went to local nice restaurant and St Elmos did not disappoint. Fantastic meals Variety of sides. Great salad. Great service. Shrimp cocktail Rocked. Great Indy Experience5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSTEAK DINNEREverything was very nice, and we were surprised with a dessert for our anniversary dinner. I was a little disappointed in my steak, as it was cooked more than "medium"- very little pink. Seemed more like medium well.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMClient RelationsTook a client to St. Elmo Steak House in an attempt to smooth over a recent work related dispute. The atmosphere was perfect and led to a good conversation while enjoying our perfectly cooked selections of steak. Having been there before, I intentionally stayed away from the shrimp cocktail knowing that this would weaken my posture by crying. We enjoyed the entire dining experience thoroughly.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMPopular butOur waiter was one of the best. At 7 PM on a Tuesday, the restaurant was full and very noisy. There were two large groups in our room. The famous hot shrimp is very spicy. They will make a mild version, but what is the point.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWeeknight Birthday CelebrationPacked place even on a Tuesday night. Beautiful historic place. Waiter kept trying to explain everything to us. He kept stopping by to talk and "give us more time" when we were ready to order. Our drinks were not as either on the menu or as described. We ordered the St Elmo whiskey and coke but it didn't come with the drunken cherries or a cherry flavor. The shrimp cocktail is as hot as described and delicious. Steak was tender and very good although it was not an aged filet. It is a place to be seen having a drink and I would go back for the shrimp but there are better steakhouses in town.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinner was greatOutstanding food and service. Worth high end dining.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Shrimp Cocktail, best serviceThe Shrimp Cocktail is always a huge draw for me, as is the steak. I was hosting business clients for dinner and they all raved about the food and service, so this was definitely money well spent. Becca and the other servers did a fabulous job in taking great care of us. Can't wait to go back!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI had family visiting fromI had family visiting from out of town.

A wonderful place for a special occasion.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBachelor PartyOur group and an enjoyable evening. Mark our waiter is one of the best I've ever had. His help on food selections and wine was superb.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA Classic Dining ExperienceSt. Elmo's Steak House was everything we had heard about and more. Our waiter had 23 years experience serving at St. Elmo's and he was excellent, offering suggestions appealing to our preferences. He was friendly, funny, and gave us plenty of private time. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was charming, comfortable and historical. One of the best dining experiences I can remember.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways fantasticYou'll always have a great experience at St. Elmo. We enjoyed a great shiraz from their extensive wine list, and it paired well with the excellent steak. Service is always wonderful. St. Elmo offers a better dining experience than other more expensive options in the city.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was my boyfiriend's 50thIt was my boyfiriend's 50th birthday.

I dined alone and was seated in a packed house just moments after the running of the Kentucky Derby. My waiter was professional and welcoming. He helped me chose the coyboy ribeye and I had the augratin potatoes. I also had 2 glassess of pinot noir wine. The service was top notch, I only noticed one small thing, the "manager" or capain walked around the room many times and never stopped by my table. The food was fabulous and it was a wonderful pre-birthday birthday celebration. Thank you so much!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was amazing here.Everything was amazing here. From entering to exiting, I had nothing but a great experience. We showed up early for our reservations so we could sit at the bar for a bit. Ended up being seated early, which was nice since we couldn't get reservations until 10. Service at the bar was polite and very responsive. After sitting down, we were quickly greeted by our server who spoke a bit about the menu and the specials for the day. He didn't rush through it like he had other things to do though. The shrimp cocktail was as spicey as I've ever had. I was also served one of the best sirloins a I've ever had. It was cooked to the right temperature and seasoned just right. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to a friend.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI received a gift card fromI received a gift card from my employer and I am glad I did. The food and atmosphere were awesome but it was expensive. I knew it would be going in though so I wasn't surprised.

Definitely recommend.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFull Flavor Shrimp and ServiceThe world famos shrimp cocktail of St Elmo's truly delivers a legendary experience complemented by world-class service. A friend and I stopped at St Elmo's during a road trip and had the last reservation of the night. The service was second to none and the dining room was bursting with energy. The staff was as attentive to the larger party next to us as they were to us. I will frequently return and always recommend St Elmo's!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSt Elmo'sNever fails to disappont.

No issues....4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMA classic in Indy, did notA classic in Indy, did not fail to live up to expectations. The Sunday dinner is a great bargain and a full St. Elmo's experience.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMTop of the Food ChainDoes St. Elmo's really even need another outstanding review? Probably not, but count me in with those who put this place at the top of the food chain. This is now my standard for any other restauarant that I would consider rating five stars. If it isn't as good as St. Elmo's, I can't give it five stars. Everything about the place is fantastic. We came with a group of 7 to celebrate my daughter's college graduation. We arrived 5 minutes before our resrvation time and we were immediately seated. Read the other reviews for food quality and count me a "ditto." The famous shrimp cocktail isn't for everyone. If you like hot horseradish, you'll love it. If you don't skip it. All steaks, seafood, sides and desserts, service etc. was A+++4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood service is great. ButFood service is great. But the tables and dining areas are a bit congested a lot of movement around the tables. Considering the room they do a great job. Food was cooked perfect and service was very polite and right on time.
