I wanted to treat my son for his 13th Birthday and it was just that! The staff were amazing and wished him happy birthday as soon as we walked in, they all signed a card for him and our waiter even treated him to a creme brulee bday treat. Their food is amazing and their service is over the top. My son wants to make this a bday tradition every year now! St.Elmo's cant be beat!

Great service! We were initially sat in a very busy, bright, and crowded area of the restaurant which really would have taken away from our nice dinner. When my partner talked to the hostess and asked if it would be possible to be sat somewhere a little bit less crowded and bright she moved us to a wonderfully intimate room which was much less noisy and bright. We couldn't have been more thrilled about this, as it was such a special evening for us.

The food and service were over the top. The taste of everything was excellent. The Elmo Colas were like no other drink. Roxanne's service was prompt and delightful. She was able to answer all of our questions and she was a delight. Super experience.

Took my wife to St. Elmo's for our 38th anniversary. Had the 3 course Sunday special. The blue cheese dressing made the salad outstanding. The main course of filet mignon, smashed potatoes, and crisp green beans was just right for our appetite, barley had room for raspberry topped cheesecake.
Can't wait to go back again.

Known for their steak and shrimp. I looked up “best steakhouse in Indianapolis” and liked what I saw at St Elmo. Little did I know just how good their Shrimp was! $40 Sunday feature—absolutely incredible steak and shrimp. Impeccable service. Better than expected and expected to be great.

We hadn't been here in a long time as we now live in Ohio. But the addition of the 1933 lounge is wonderful for before or after dinner. We found the food to be as we remembered. Most of all we were extremely impressed with the service we received from Kate.

Ordered the tomahawk ribeye, most expensive steak on the menu, medium rare. Waiter said “cool red center”, steak was refrigerator cold, raw, and completely under seasoned, as in non existent. It was amazingly the most expensive steak I’ve ever had, and the worst steak at the same time. I typically order steaks rare so when I say “raw” I am not exaggerating.

The steaks were cooked perfectly! More importantly everyone wishes us a happy anniversary (they definitely read their notes) and the server gave us our time to drink and eat, did not rush us at all. Also made gluten free (celiac) very easy to accommodate. Thank you for the beautiful signed anniversary card too! So thoughtful !

Overall the night was great. There was an issue with our steaks not being good properly but our waiter resolved the issue quickly. There was also kids in the restaurant which took away from an adult night out but didn't ruin the evening.
