Fodor's Expert Review St. Elmo Steak House

$$$ Indianapolis Steakhouse

It says "Famous since 1902," and it truly is. In 2012, this storied steak house was named a James Beard Award-winner in the category of America's Classics. It's clear why: The ornately carved wood trim, tin ceiling, bow-tied servers, and walls covered with photos of famous diners throughout the decades hint at its history. Expertly done filets, prime rib, ribeye and porterhouse confirm its continuing appeal. An impressive 2,000-square-foot wine cellar boasts nearly 12,000 bottles or, for a sip with a kick, order the signature Elmo Cola (Maker's Mark bourbon infused with Luxardo cherries from Italy, served with an ice-cold bottle of cola on the side).
