St. Elmo Steak House Restaurant Review

: Dining at St. Elmo is an Indiana tradition. This is the place to see famed athletes, visiting rock stars and local VIPs. The legendary shrimp cocktail is complemented by hotter-than-hot sauce. Aged steaks are skillfully cooked. Select a clubby dining room or one of the private rooms, sip a fine wine and enjoy the atmosphere of this institution. To cap off the meal, let dessert be the true New York-style cheesecake with a drizzle of hot fudge sauce. Service is professional. Classic cocktails, local craft beers on draft and a red-heavy wine list add to the experience.
