Classic steak house
St. Elmo's is an Indianapolis institution. Awesome as always.
I was underwhelmed my the flavor of the steak although the quality peaked my interest. The house sauce was dreadful. The navy bean soup was delightful. The bread - subperb. And the green beans were bland and not well cooked; it left me in a perpetual confused state. Overall, I was mildy disappointed as my hopes for a great titalating experience was hopelessly dashed.
Great food good service
Glenn was an outstanding waiter and person
Always amazing time at St Elmo’s! The dinner was phenomenal and my Bloody Mary was one of the best I’ve had.
Good food. Butter cake was particularly good. Had a prime ribeye. Pretty good.
We went on a Sunday and didn’t know they had a Sunday dinner special. It was perfect. $40 for a three course meal. 6 oz fillet (you can upgrade for $8 to an 8 oz) salad or shrimp cocktail and a dessert.
Service is always been great! attention to detail, the staff is excellent and great food! The chocolate cake is really really rich!
The service was out of this world! We love eating here when coming in town!
Husband and I have not had a date night this great I. A long time! Service, atmosphere, and food were absolutely amazing! Will make it a definite go-to!
One of the best restaurants in the Midwest. Fantastic menu that keeps the starters simple and makes the main courses count. Best shrimp cocktail anywhere. When in Indianapolis this is a must!
My first visit to St. Elmo's was back in 2003. I was in town for a convention and one of my colleagues mentioned St. Elmo's for dinner. It was one of my favorite meals of all time.
Fast forward to 2018, for my second visit, and again St. Elmo's did not disappoint! The shrimp cocktail was better than I remember, which was superb. The Caesar salad was great. Most important of all the fillet was simply amazing. It was cooked perfectly and seasoned to perfection. I would recommend St. Elmo's to anyone who truly appreciates dinning on, what I would say is, simply the most delectable food you can enjoy.
Outstanding service and food. Highly recommend . And don’t forget the shrimp cocktail
Amazing Steaks, Shrimp Cocktail and Private Bourbon Barrells
Our waiter was very nice and attentive. We did not wait long between each course
Excellent food and a very good staff made our visit a pleasure!
It was our 10 year anniversary, we decided to have dinner in a notably upscale place. We chose St. Elmo's and was not disappointed, they are known for a reason!!
Very average for a high end steak house. The seating in the basement probably really ruins the evening.
Loved the whole experience. Anniversary card at the table was a great touch.
Dinner at St. Elmo's was excellent. The food was great as usual. The staff seemed a bit busy as the place was full. I did not feel we got the type of attention that we were accustomed to here, but the whole evening was still very enjoyable. We have eaten here every time we have come to Indy and of course will continue to eat here each time in the future. As busy as it was, our food came out promptly and certainly stood up to the reputation of one of the best steakhouses in Indiana.
Shrimp cocktail and wine was
The steaks were super and not as tasty as we would expect
An old classic. Always been great for us. The shrimp cocktail is great and kind of fun to eat. The horseradish will really clear your nasal passage. We always love the steaks.
Great every time
We dine here once or twice a year. It's always great: the meal, the service , the location for all Indy. sporting events, concerts, and special occasions! Steaks are mouth watering, Shrimp cocktail is of course the most special treat! Have been coming here for 40 years, always something special to look forward to!
Everything was amazing! Would highly recommend.
Fantastic food served in old fashioned dinner club atmosphere ~ amazing steaks and the shrimp cocktail was outstanding (warning, strong horseradish which I loved but not everyone will). Knowledgeable congenial waiter who knew the menu well and offered spot on recommendations. Desserts were also exceptional. The meal was expensive, but worth every penny.
What an incredible night. We had a wonderful dinner and Bill took great care of us!
A few issues that I had with the waiter were: He was not knowledgeable about wine, when he poured our glasses he then proceeded to wipe the wine spout on the sleeve of his jacket, My steak was not cooked evenly ( more done on the top then the bottom), lastly the food was overpriced for the taste. Honestly, the shrimp cocktail was the best thing i had that night, besides the wine that I picked out. I would not recommend anyone go here and spend the money they would like you to spend on the poor service and quality of the food.
The ambiance is perfect! Service was impeccable! The shrimp cocktail was awsome! My fiance and I both got the bone in ribeyes. They were both cooked to perfection for us. There wasnt a bit of flavor to the steaks at all. We both put the flavored butter for the bread on our steaks to give them some kind of flavor. I was very disappointed to say the least. We are from around Cincinnati and stayed two nights in Indy to celebrate both of our birthdays. We booked reservations because numerous of our friends and family told us that the steaks were amazing along with the shrimp cocktail. Maybe the cook forgot to season the steaks? We both enjoyed ourselves but we most likely would not spend the money to dine here again. I am just telling you our opinion and i am not telling you this to get something for free! I also do not want anyone to not go there because of my review. The place is very rich in history and again the service was impeccable!
Great experience and wonderful meal!
St. Elmo's has never disappointed us. We had a reservation and was seated immediately upon arrival. Our server was very attentive to everything we needed. The steaks were tender enough to cut with a fork. Everything was delicious.
Shimp Cocktail was wonderfully spicy! Cream Spinach was amazing too. They cook to the rare side so prepared for that. I was still full the next day. Very rich food!
I felt like a little bit slow for coming out the food and really quick for picking up a food...
Hosted a retirement celebration dinner recently. Was fortunate to have a private room, otherwise the noise would've made conversation difficult. That said, our service and meals were excellent. St. Elmo is always a good choice while in Indy.
This was one of the best places that I have ever eaten at. The service was great. The food was amazing! You must try the surf n turf. Best I've ever had. I would highly recommend eating here.
Food and service was good. The area we were seated in was quite congested!
Such a great place to go for a special occasion. It’s very pricey but well worth it for a celebration. From host to wait staff to bus help, they are all very professional, attentive and experts at what they do. Highly recommend St Elmo’s if you want to be well taken care of and enjoy a GREAT dinner.
As always, food and service were exceptional. Our favorite downtown restaurant, best filet in town!! We enjoy having Amy as our server (one of only five female servers) and decided to request her each time we dine there.
