The jumbo shrimp cocktail with its hotter-than-hot sauce is as famous as the New York strip at this Indianapolis landmark.

St. Elmo Steak House Restaurant Review

: This Indianapolis landmark, open since 1902, is known for its aged steaks and appetizer of jumbo shrimp nestled under a hot, hot, hot cocktail sauce. During any visit, one is sure to see a local professional athlete, visiting entertainer or government official. The atmosphere is a little bit clubby mixed with the aura of an old-time steakhouse. Dinners, perhaps a bone-in filet or the legendary New York strip, come with St. Elmo’s bean soup and a choice of potatoes or green beans. Wine selections are impressive, as is the wine cellar that can be toured upon request. Among the desserts, we suggest the New York-style cheesecake, with the option of adding raspberry purée or hot fudge. Service is professional.
