Just didn't live up to the hype. I love the atmosphere, but the steak was not even close to the best I've ever had.

If you like shrimp you MUST start off with the shrimp cocktail!! Just be cautious with the first bite, at can be overwhelming... The Filet was prepared perfectly (med/rare plus) it cut with a fork and melted in my mouth. I will be back!!

My husband took me to St. Elmo Steak House for my Birthday. The steak I had was simply superb! My knife cut through the steak like butter and the flavor was just perfect. Our waiter was friendly and was great at giving suggestions. This restaurant moved to the top of my dining choices. Their shrimp cocktail is a must!

Steak so tender you can use your butter knife to cut it. The shrimp cocktail is a real treat, the shrimp are extra large, firm of flesh and the cocktail sauce is a blast of flavor and a rush to your sinuses.

I attended a recent convention and took a customer out to dinner. The service was top notch. The wait staff knew their stuff. The food however I felt was good but not worth the extra expense or the hype. We had the shrimp cocktail, of course, plus all the add- ons that our waiter recommended. My customer enjoyed his steak... More

Been here many times. Service and food is always consistent. You know it has been around along by looking at all the pictures on the walls. Steak is king here, as well as their famously spicy shrimp cocktail. Be sure to try it. The cocktail and wine list should please anyone. Can be very busy, so be sure to make... More

Excited to celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary and the famed St. Elmo's steakhouse in Indy, it was a wonderful experience.
