Food and service were spectacular! Dining there on a Sunday allowed us to have a slow paced dining experience which made the evening that much more enjoyable.

We went for filet for our son who turned 14. We are a family that eats out quite a bit do to all the sports and activities our kids are involved in. We are also happy to go out for a filet or higher end meal. We should of went to Ruth’s. 3 of the 5 of us had Filet and all of our steak was cooked poorly. We asked for medium and it was more well done and tough. My son had to eventually spit out three pieces because it was so chewy he couldn’t swallow the bite! A 55.00 piece of meat should not be tough and chewy!! My husband felt like changing it up and got a burger for whatever reason. His burger was bleeding on the plate. Let’s just say 350.00 later we were beyond unimpressed. We are happy to spend good money for good food. This was not quality or good food! Save your pennies and go to Ruth Chris

First time visiting this restaurant. Food was on par with similar steakhouses. We had to wait about 15 mins past our reservation time. Our table was in the middle of an area where wait staff and patrons were constantly walking on both sides of us. Noisy atmosphere but totally as advertised on website, etc. Steak was wonderful. Personal preference for the money spent I will probably go next door to St Elmo’s or another restaurant a little more low key.

The food was outstanding and our waitress Jordon did a wonderful job. The steak was cooked to perfection, so overall first time experience was a great place and I will return.

Going on a Colts game night wasn’t the best idea. For the money, I would have expected more regarding service. It was noisy and a bit chaotic. Getting there was a bit of a mess (after the game). Love this place, as a rule. But they seemed overwhelmed.

The food was fabulous and the staff excellent. Only trouble is it was a buzy Saturday night. With one kitchen supporting two very popular restaurants (Harry & Izzy's and St' Elmo's) the main entrées can be slow to arrive.

A welcoming atmosphere from the moment we arrived. The service staff answered multiple menu questions in great detail which helped our decision making. The manager, J.R. followed up a couple times to see how our experience was going. As always.......the food was amazing.

Overall good experience. The food was excellent. Have to take a couple stars off for service though. They did the automatic gratuity. Unfortunately, the waiter only short changed himself as we would’ve tipped more than that, and it left us with a cheap feeling.

Had the dry aged ribeye which was the special that night. Second best steak I had ever had, by far the best in Indiana.

My wife and I went here to celebrate our anniversary and it was absolutely the best dining experience we've ever had. The staff was very friendly and professional. The service was quick but not rushed. And of course the food was outstanding! My wife had filet mignon and I had the dry-aged ribeye. We ended dinner with their brownie and vanilla ice cream desert. Needless to say we can't wait to return!

We love going to Harry and Izzy's. Our kids gave us gift cards for various occasions and we finally found time to use them! Of course the shrimp cocktail was amazing. Drinks were great. We were down in the smaller room, and I wished I would have asked for a different location as I think that is so dark and old looking. Food was wonderful. Service was good. Only down side was that instead of boxing up our left overs, I guess the server threw them away. :-( Sad we could not enjoy the left overs the next day!!

Harry and Izzy’s never lets us down. I met some colleagues from out of town and this was my first choice. The evening cooled down and we took advantage of the outdoor seating. Service and food were excellent as usual.

Harry and Izzy’s is one of my favorite places to go. My boyfriend tends to think he can get a better steak at Ruth’s Chris that’s worth the price but he had a great experience this last time we went. Also their cheesecake is to die for!

The staff was wonderful...they went above and beyond to meet our needs as we had several children in our party. Only negative was the food. It was just okay, (sentiments shared by all adults in our party and by the children), and that wasn’t expected considering all else. Bland tasting; nothing stood out as we thought it should for the price-point. For that reason, we’d look to other options next time.
