St. Elmo Steak House: "Great steaks" St. Elmo's Steak House Tip by Jolietvilletraveler

St. Elmo's Steak House, Indianapolis: 7 reviews and 5 photos

St. Elmo's is an Indy tradition. Been there for over 100 years. Known for great steaks & furnace hot shrimp sauce. We had not been there for years, but had visiting relatives from New England and wanted to show them a famous place. First thing that wasn't "right" was when the entrees were served, the 2 men in the party were served first!!!!!!! This is a no matter the year, courtesy says women should be served first!! Then when the 2 women's plates were presented, the wrong sides were on the wrong plates!! Waiter took them to close sideboard & just switched the steaks. One of the men ordered the lamb porterhouse "extremely rare" & was assured by waiter it would be red & cool in center. When he cut into it, was medium well!!!!!!! This was kinda rectified as waiter brought him another 1/2 order cooked the way it should have been. All in all, to spend $200 for a meal for 4, it was NOT WORTH IT!!! Steaks were very good & 2 of the 3 baked potatoes were excellent. Third one was waayyy overcooked. If you want to pay for atmosphere & to say you have been there, go ahead & spend the $$$$$, but I will never go back.
