Shrimp Cocktail excellent with 4 jumbo shrimp. Both Filet and Ribeye steaks were cooked exactly to order. Enjoy dining here three times a year.

We LOVED this restaurant! My husband and I were walking around Indy waiting to go to an Indians game (we live in Florida) when we walked past St. Elmo's. The gentleman at the outside podium said hello and asked if we were hungry. We said...More

We loved the atmosphere, the food and our servers. Our only pause was how long we waited for our main entree. It was too long and we ended up eating too much bread and didn’t finish our meals.

Make reservations in advance for this popular Indianapolis steakhouse. Food and service were great. Filet and lobster tail were delicious and cooked perfectly. French fries were too salty for our taste but the waiter gladly exchanged them for mashed potatoes. The shrimp cocktail is a...More

I swear this was the best shrimp cocktail and ribeye I have ever eaten...and I am extremely picky about both. First on the shrimp. You need to like horseradish. It is spicy but wonderful. Now the steak is different. Top quality beef, lightly seasoned, cooked...More

Popped in with a colleague, steak was good, Navy soup lovely, but other than a brief chat at the end, the service felt rushed, courses flew out. I could understand this more if it was early in the service, but this was well past 9pm....More

Definitely a local landmark to say the least. We opted upstairs to the bar prior to reservation time. Service is a trademark regardless where you are in there. A really nice mix of upscale and locals all in one. Steak is the menu, the prices...More
