This steakhouse was fantastic. If you want a great steak, great service this is the place. David, our waiter, has been there for over 20 years. Very knowledgeable and friendly. He gave us the history of St Elmo and great tips on ordering!
Both steaks were rare when medium rare was ordered. Everything else was good.
The shrimp cocktail was unlike any I've ever had. It kicks so hard, you chew it with your head bent up and your nostrils flaring. It's really good, though. The texture of the steak was amazing. You do not need a steak knife to cut through the porterhouse--a butter knife would work. Shoot, a fork would probably work. But it doesn't have a particularly memorable flavor. I'd rather my steak by under seasoned than over seasoned, so that was okay. The service was exceptional and the ambiance was nice. There were people wearing bow ties and dresses, and there were casually dressed families with their kids--it has a classy and inviting atmosphere.
Thanks to Doug our waiter. Lot's of personality and connected with us (motorcycles)
Had really looked forward to this experience as I had heard many positive comments about St. Elmos. The shrimp cocktail was amazing of course! The steak was rather dry and potatoes a bit lack luster. The soup was wonderful as was the peach blueberry pie. For the cost, I would choose something else.
We went for our 2nd Anniversary and Jordan did an EXCELLENT job of taking care of us! Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in a superb steak!
This was my second visit to St. Elmo's and won me over! The first left me underwhelmed. The service was amazing, but the food just wasn't worth the hype.
Totally different experience this time. The food was wonderful. My NY strip was perfectly prepared and incredibly flavorful. The sides were delicious. Of course, the drinks were on point. Couldn't ask for a better server. Super attentive, but didn't hover. Will definitely return after this trip!
Amazing as always, food, ambiance, and our waiter Andy Cooper is the best! Never disappointed!!!!
Great place!!! Awesome service. Food was top of the line. Shrimp cocktail was the bomb!!
Our server Andy was amazing! Very knowledgeable and extremely pleasant.
Steve wonderful, as always.
You will NEVER have a bad experience at St. Elmos. The wait staff there is beyond exceptional and the honest-to-goodness chef here makes certain that the quality lives up to its legend. This is NOT an inexpensive place to eat. I spent over $150 for two but it was well worth it for the experience.
Our quiet seat, turned into a noisy meal. 2nd waiter slow, we had to ask for everything.
For the one only special appetizer, the shrimp cocktail, you would expect a great presentation. It was simply big shrimp thrown in the serving dish with sauce. Almost like it was served using a ladle. Shrimp and sauce. Great tasting but lack of attention to detail.
Loved meeting the people next to us but our waiter seemed to rush us, so that
is the only negative I have.
Service was wonderful but not where you want to go for a quiet atmosphere. Steaks were good but honestly I’ve had better for the price.
St. Elmo has been a part of our trips to Indianapolis, every time we're in town, for the past ten years.
I was very disappointed---I booked for a party of six---ALL were disappointed. I would not recommmend this restaurant to anyone. Our testimonies are not good.
Was lovely. Had great waiter that made the experience great. Shrimp cocktail was amazing so was the steak. Want to go again.
Birthday and preconcert dinner, fabulous food and service.
Second time here with a year apart wife's steak was good mine again was below average ordered the Cowboy Ribeye steak flavor was good but when your at a top rated steakhouse and the premium steak arrives to your table on a cool plate and the steak is not hot and seems to be of little concern to the waiter when he asked how it was and he says it did not sit for very long before serving(Hot plate when he set in down means to me don't touch it was cool to the touch) but said no more. I guess living on the long lasting name, you can't charge premium prices without premium PRODUCT and service.
Took an agent as a reward for good quarter
Grey Goose Cosmo, check, shrimp cocktail, check, bean soup, check, filet mignon, check, creme brûlée, check. Ah! Delicious! Craving satisfied. Scott our waiter was terrific and the staff were very attentive. A definite if in Indianapolis. Thank you St. Elmo's for another top dining experience. I'll be back.
Our waiter was not attentive. He messed up our order two times. We were rushed through our meal. He wasn’t personal at all. I took my girlfriend there because of a great past experience I had. To say the least I spent $150 for two people and she “wasn’t impressed”.
Cocktails were good, so was obviously the shrimp cocktail. But I asked for a quiet table, but that's not what we got. Steak was mediocre at best to my surprise. I ordered the 60 day aged steak medium rare, well, it was chewy and more rare than anything. The server never came to inquire, so I wasn't too thrilled about that, but didn't care at that point anymore. After all what I heard I expected way more.
The food was excellent. Our server was very attentive offering good opinions and advice for ordering.
Incredible! I took my team out for a thank you dinner to celebrate a job well done. We started with cocktails in the 1933 Lounge and had dinner afterwards. The meal was wonderful and they even accommodated two of my guests with dietary restrictions and created vegan meals. The service was top notch and I would recommend everyone take an opportunity to visit and experience an Indianapolis diamond.
Awesome service, awesome food!
Professional and classy
STEVE was an excellent server. As always the food was delicious and the shrimp cocktail lived up to it’s reputation
Heard a lot about the restaurant from cooking channels and they were right. The meat was excellent, homemade breads and the bean soup was great.
The steak was amazing, I have never had such a tender steak. I will definitely return.
The shrimp cocktail is a must. The steaks needed more seasoning, but they were good. We had the ribeye.
This was hands down the best steak we’ve ever had!!!! I will definitely go back again and again.
One of my top 5 restaurants. Food & service are great.
My drink came out wrong and had to be sent back right from the start. Then we were charged three (3) shrimp cocktails instead of one and had to wait for another bill to be corrected. Then it came back with the wrong bill instead of ours, so we were delayed again. However the service other than the errors, was very good, the meal was good and we would recommend to others. Anyone can have a bad day, I just wish it wasn't us, especially since we have many out of town guests that come to Indy and we would love to use St. Elmo again.
Wait staff signed an anniversary card for our 50th wedding anniversary.
I had not been to St. Elmo's since moving away over 20 years ago and my wife had never been. It was exactly as I remembered. My wife and I decided to share an entrée so we would have room for dessert and there were no hassles, sometimes higher end restaurants scoff splitting. They even split everything in the kitchen before arriving at the table. We had an early dinner reservation because we had a flight to catch and noise was no issue at all, but I am sure it can be when the place gets full. The shrimp cocktail was great. The lobster bisque had nice chunks of lobster, and the steak was cooked perfect medium rare. Had a great time and will definitely put St. Elmo's on our to do list for future trips to Indy.
Great, as always!
It was great, just wish the chocolate cake would've been available! It was listed on this app but no longer an item on the menu!
