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

: Known for its aged steaks and appetizer of jumbo shrimp nestled under a hot, hot, hot cocktail sauce, this Indianapolis landmark --- open since 1902 --- is a favorite of visiting VIPs as well as local politicians, pro athletes and top entertainers. The atmosphere is a little bit clubby mixed with the aura of an old-time New York steakhouse. The limited dinner menu is short on selections and long on flavor and size, such as the legendary filet, bone-in cowboy rib-eye or the Indiana pork chop. Wine selections are impressive, as is the wine cellar, which may be toured upon request. Among the desserts, we suggest the New York-style cheesecake, with the option of adding raspberry purée or hot fudge.
