I've always had a wonderful experience with an outstanding steak. However tonight's steak was one of the toughest I've ever had. I mentioned it to our waiter who took care of it right away. So I was still very impressed with their commitment to satisfied customers.
Wonderful, as usual! The Sunday menu is a much better value than the usual menu.
Most amazing experience. Dinner in a private room with a great server, Jake. ONLY complaint is they don’t have A-1. I don’t care how great my steak is, it’s a must!
The service was very slow. I was told there was no availability until 8:30PM when I called. I then went on their website and there were tables available all night. That was odd. Prices have gone up dramatically in the last couple of years and the quantity of food has shrunk. One example is the shrimp cocktail. I think we received four shrimp. It used to be 6 or 7 shrimp. That is life I suppose. I just left not as impressed as I was the last time I ate there.
Excellent Food and Service. Our waiter was excellent.
Excellent experience, our waiter (Phillip) was fantastic.
Very fine old style steak house. Superb cuisine especially the steaks. Very large portions, and very nicely done. Very expensive so best for business dinners and special occasions.
It was so nice to have friendly staff!! It is nice to be spoken to as if your presence is appreciated. All staff were very prompt and attentive. First time dining here and having the wonderful cocktail shrimp! Steaks cooked perfectly. Prices were spot on! I actually thought our bill would be more.
It was noisy and we hard time with conversation. Everyone was dressed professionally as well
Good prime rib good coffee good blueberry white chocolate bread pudding. It was all good
Perfect, the food was excellent. Our waitress was very nice, informative and polite. Great night
Amazing food!! Worth the drive. Service is so good. Get the shrimp cocktail!!!!
We loved it great B day gift from my wife. Food was amazing wait staff was exceptional. One word Awesome!!!!!!
Upon moving to Indiana, eating the shrimp cocktail at St. Elmo Steak House had become a bucket list activity. So my significant other and I decided we wanted to go here on a Friday night - I made a reservation a week in advance, and only 4:45pm, 9:15pm, and 9:45pm reservations were available, so I chose the 9:15pm slot. Note - I guess you really need to make plans in far advance if you want a reasonably-timed reservation here on the weekend! But the real question is was the shrimp cocktail worth the hype and the late dinner? Absolutely. It's got such a powerful horseradish kick that my sinuses cleared up and my eyes began to water instantly after the first bite, but you keep eating it because it's just that good. The steak was also spectacular and cooked to perfection, which for me is slightly more rare. I ordered my ribeye steak medium as recommended by our server and it was charred on the outside, yet still miraculously on the medium-rare side in the center, which tasted like perfection. My date ordered the filet cooked medium and it was some of the most tender, flavorful filet minion I have ever enjoyed. Even though the atmosphere was loud, bustling, and not as romantic as I was expecting, we still enjoyed very nice conversation and an outstanding dinner together. Our water glasses were always full, the cocktails were excellent, and our server made time to connect and engage with us throughout the evening. What a special night to enjoy at this Indianapolis staple. We certainly had a fun, memorable night at St. Elmo Steak House.
Very loud acoustics could be better to keep noise level down not really ideal for romantic setting or low key celebrations
Valet service was outstanding
This was my second visit to St. Elmo’s. It’s easily my new favorite steakhouse. The dry aged ribeye is perfection!
Steaks were very under cooked... ordered medium and they were very rare. For the amount of money and the fact they are well known establishment you would think a steak would be cooked to the order or at least close to it.. altho the shrimp cocktail sauce was awesome but also over priced for 4 shrimp..this was my first and last visit.
Shrimp cocktail tasty
Steak was cooked to perfection rare
Crab mac and cheese very creamy
AMAZING!!! Always my choice for the MAPP conference every October.
Great food. Didn’t suck.
Excellent food, excellent service (thank you Rick)
A fantastic experience. From the moment we arrived until we departed the staff and food were second to none. A great place to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary.
Our first experience was wonderful! Will definitely be back for big occasions.
Waiter was pushy on wine and I asked medium and got well done on my steak. How do you fail to cook Steak properly at a steak house!
The 60 day dry aged was flavorful and delicious, but dry.
The classic American steak house, never disappoints.
The steaks were perfectly cooked and delicious. The shrimp were massive and the cocktail sauce was spot on.
The food was fairly good. I got the NY Strip and it wasn't the best I've had at a steak house (it was good though). By and away the highlights were the shrimp cocktail and their drink cocktails. Don't skip on any of those if you do go.
The food was outstanding. Unfortunately our table was in the middle of the room and we kept getting bumped. The restaurant was packed so it did take awhile to get our food. Aside from that, my husband said it was the best filet mignon he has ever had...it melted in his mouth.
Hands down. Best filet we’ve ever hand. Drop the mic
Great service and great food. Definitely will return when back in Indy.
This was our first time @ St. Elmo's. We usually go to the north side for finer dining, now we won't have to :) The meal was very comparable to Eddie Merlot's or Flemings. We will definitely return!
Wonderful dining experience! Wonderful food and service . Shrimp cocktail is all they claim it to be! We’re from out of state and took advice from a few that recommended and so happy we did!
I firmly believe that even though the food was great, I was slightly disappointed that the shrimp cocktail was $16.00 for 4 relatively small pieces of shrimp. The lobster bisque was good, but it would have been nice to have other variations of salad dressings for your wedge salad (rather than blue-cheese), as well as some other options besides a small glass of tomato juice or navy-bean soup. The service was good, but for what we paid, I would've liked to see a better selection of seafood items. Overall, a nice place to eat, but rather pricey.
Outstanding! From the waiters to the food, this place is a must go to.
Starting with the unforgettable and famous Shrimp cocktail, the fantastic filet, ending with a creamy creme brulee.
Cocktails are fantastic as well. Very liberal with the pour.
Our table of 8 was taken care of very well the entire meal.
We were very excited to eat at St. Elmos steak house. Everyone in Indianapolis knows of this restaurant and it's reputation for spicy shrimp cocktail and quality steaks. We ordered a special not listed on the menu: Dry rubbed ribeye aged for 28 days for $58.00 each. I have never had a steak that cost anywhere near this amount and I was excited to taste a steak that was somehow special enough to command this price. We each cut into the steak and took a bite at the same time. We watched each other eat with anticipation expecting the look of pure ecstacy to be displayed. It didn't appear. Hmmm.. Maybe another bite... nothing. After eating several more bites we compared notes and we both said the same thing... 'Tasteless'. These aged steaks were described by our waiter as having a deep harty bold steak flavor with a bit of smoke flavor. Our steaks were bland and boring with very little steak flavor at all. Without exaggeration we both agree that we have had much better steaks from Texas Roadhouse. Our dinner bill (with tip) was $200.00. We had a very disappointing experience.My advice: don't fall for the hype. There is nothing special to see or eat here.
Food & service was impeccable! It is always a treat to dine at St Elmo’s. Andy, our waiter, provided outstanding service! And of course the meal was delicious! Best steak house!
Great atmosphere, and absolutely delicious food. We were sat quickly and greeted promptly. Calvin, our server, was not only knowledgeable but also personable. Highly recommended place for a special night.
