This is the first time I have to walk away from a reservation, they sent me on to the bar and they gave my table away. Also they were extremely rude.
I will not be coming back,

I ordered the 12oz Filet mignon medium plus and got a medium rare. My waiter was no where to be found and I finally had another server take my steak back to be cooked longer and it came back tasting charred. For a $55 steak I was disappointed. By the time my steak came back to the table my wife was almost done with her meal.

Server forgot drinks (beer) TWICE for my customer. Got my bottled wine 45 minutes after I sat down. Steak was not prepared correctly & cold. When I got it back it was charred. 3.5 hour dinner was too long.

Hosted out of town business associates for a dinner meeting. Love the setting, especially the bar and the hustle and bustle. Always a good crowd and great drinks, appetizers and entrees.

The shrimp cocktail was as advertised...sinus clearing but delicious. The ribeye was perhaps the best I've ever had - mouth-watering and tender. However, my wife's pork chops were a little tough. Service was excellent and the ambiance enjoyable. However, the noise level made it difficult to converse. It was our first time to eat at St. Elmo's and we were impressed. We both appreciated the history and are glad to have had the experience.

We have always loved going to St Elmo’s for special occasions. This visit was to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
This is the first time I have been disappointed. Service was great as usual but the food was not up to par. My husband had a ribeye and I had a filet. Neither steak was what we have come to expect at St Elmo’s.

We dined for a Pacers pregame meal & early Valentine’s Day date. Thoroughly enjoyed our entire experience. Servers were attentive & helpful, and made sure to keep us on time for the basketball game without making us feel rushed. Would have given them top scores across the board, but my salmon was quite undercooked. Still delicious though...

I brought my love there for his birthday. He is from Wisconsin and had never been but heard about St. Elmo's. The experience was incredible. We were attending the Pacer game as well and we were in and out but not rushed. Thank you for a great memory.

Took my mother for her 80th birthday. It was great. They made special arrangements on the spot to make sure we were on the first floor and did not have to navigate stairs. Food was fabulous and service was even better. Thanks Jordan!

Stopped by after the Pacers Game and our experience was TERRIBLE. We had reservations and were waiting over >1 Hr. but one after another was seated ahead of us as they walked in. Proves once again it’s not preparation or planning in life but who you know at the hostess desk!

Great atmosphere. Steak was good but not $51 awesome. Johnny Wallet Blue $65/shot was REDICULOUS!
Pricing the walker so high ruined the after dinner envy

Scheduling the reservation in November of last year, I requested a table for 13 in the wine cellar. We were seated on the first floor general dining area. The room was very noisy and not what I expected. On previous anniversary diners, the wine cellar was perfect.

With our 7:30 reservation the restaurant ran out of bone-in fillet. (Really on a Saturday night?) Our waiter was extremely gracious but could not overcome the displeasure of the evening. Very unsatisfied.

As always, St Elmo's did not disappoint. The shrimp cocktail was amazing, the prime rib was phenomenal (best we have had!) And the lobster and porterhouse were absolutely delicious. Even though we were sufficiently full, we had the creme brulee for dessert. Did not disappoint.
