While St. Nick is out delivering toys, St. Elmo is delivering satisfying steak to delightful diners. The St. Elmo Steak House has had its claim in downtown Indianapolis since 1902. Over the years, the décor has changed a bit and the menu has grown, but guests will still find historical roots throughout the building. Guests will enjoy the award-winning wine cellar and options for private parties with several rooms available. The specialty here is no secret. Filet Mignon and Porterhouse Steak are served with such abundant and juicy flavors that are sure to keep diners returning for more. The King Crab and Shrimp Linguine delights the palette while the Crème Brulee massages the taste buds. St. Elmo’s is committed to supporting local farmers and is pleased to offer locally grown/produced products as part of their signature dishes. When your meal is finished, take home a taste of St. Elmo’s by purchasing the St. Elmo Steak House Cocktail Sauce or a gift card for a friend. Though open seven nights a week with valet parking and takeout options, be sure to make a reservation if you plan on dining in at this landmark restaurant.

The bartenders at Brewstone Beer Company have trouble picking their favorite types of beer, so they don’t bother. Instead, they serve domestic and imported pours from all over the atlas, grabbing brews from as close as Sun King Brewing and as far away as the great ale houses of Europe.

They also play well with the menu’s half-pound Angus burgers topped with avocado mayo, seared ahi tuna spiced with wasabi mousse, and pasta tossed with spicy chicken and grape tomatoes. Feasts unfold inside a spacious dining room, where a mural of electric guitars presides over roomy leather booths and flat-screen televisions tuned to the day’s sports.
