I love St. Elmo's. I set aside a large portion of money so I can eat there and have whatever I want. Their shrimp cocktail is so wonderful, I had to go back and get another one on a different day. My steak was one of the 5 best steaks I've ever had. The level of service and the mood there is something I love and it's a near holy experience for me.
That shrimp cocktail is a prestige class unto itself. I have been going back to St. Elmo's for 13 years now. While I get different cuts of meat, that's the one item that is a must have.
Easily in the top five steak houses in the US I have been to.
Well, if you're vegetarian, I'd probably just skip the place. Their sides are delicious, but a lot of them have animal products as well.
If you're allergic to shellfish, they make very good steaks.
Be prepared to spend a lot of money though. I haven't gotten out of there with a bill under $100 for just myself. It's possible to spend less than that, but even on the cheap side, you're going to spend $25 on an entree.
I always get my badge for free for volunteering for stuff. I take that money and spend it on dinner at St. Elmo's (plus some extra I set aside).
Oh, something new this year, they started carrying select bottles of Four Roses and Woodford Reserve. The Four Roses are the fairly standard single barrel selections you find lots of places, but they're the ones that their staff likes. The Woodford are ones I've only seen specifically at St. Elmo's (though I expect some other restaurants/liquor stores carry these as well). The Woodford I had was very good, #7 I think.
