It was worth every dollar. The staff was kind and helpful. My son really enjoyed his drinks. Our waitress was great and explained everything even how hot the shrimp sauce was. I will be back sooner than 30 years.

There were 7 of us and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Our waiter was excellent (sorry I did not get his name), and he took great care of us the entire evening. St. Elmo’s never disappoints when it come to our food. My steak was delicious and tasty. Thank you all for giving us a time of normalcy in this not so normal time of living. You guys are the best!!

Everything about our experience was fantastic. Staff was very professional and mindful of the guests. Our server was very attentive when she needed to be, but not excessive. Food and wine made for the perfect meal. I would definitely recommend.

We had an amazing experience from start to finish! Had cocktails upstairs while we waited for our reservation. Extremely prompt and professional service.

Dinner Could not be more perfect! Phillip was our waiter and made our dining experience so enjoyable!
The food was absolutely divine.

Our waitress was amazing!!!!! Our steaks just weren’t the best we’ve ever had, but don’t get me wrong they were good. I wish they offered a cocktail sauce that was a milder version.

It's not often that the restaurant actually lives up to the hype. Well, I can say that St.Elmo's Steakhouse did not live up to the high, it exceeded it! The service was fantastic, the food was the best, I can honestly say that this is one of the best experiences of my life. Me and my wife went to St. Elmo's for our 11th year anniversary and we had a blast. I plan on coming back every year around this time.

During these hard times it is wonderful to visit our favorite restaurant for dinner. Calvin our waiter was very friendly and provided excellent service. Mike G is our favorite bartender and we had a chance to talk with him. He makes the best "sidecar". We will continue to visit for dinner and drinks.

My wife and I went for our anniversary to St. Elmo's Devour 2020 menu and it was superb. I had never been to St. Elmo's before and we were in and out in less than an hour. The service was spectacular and was very quick, we couldn't believe how quickly our food came out and it was semi busy. The food was delicious and just all around very pleased with our experience.

St Elmo’s is our favorite restaurant in Indianapolis. This visit was pleasant and our food was superb. The only downside was the rooks came out cold.

This was such a treat for our family! Some of us this was our first time to St Elmos and it did not disappoint! Clean, social distanced tables and incredible food! Loved the package deal with the choices (would of loved a ceasar option but loved the wedge anyway). Great value for a steakhouse and my filet was cooked perfectly! Hope to be back next time we come to Indianapolis.
