I travel for work and it brings me to Indy often. I have tried 5 of the numerous steak houses in Indy and this one is on top in terms of food. The truffle mashed potatoes are absolutely amazing. I also had the 8oz filet which was better than some of the ones and on the same level as others.... More

We had our office Christmas party here and the service was 2nd to none! Dinner is what you would expect at a fine dining steakhouse, very good but not the best in Indy for the price.

Wait staff works in teams, and is extremely professional and attentive. The Delmonico steak is excellent, as was my wife's Steak Diane -- both were cooked to perfection. All steak cuts are Prime rated. Setting is genteel and comfortable, and atmosphere on this Friday night was boisterous. Highly recommended.

We loved the dining experience at Prime 47. It is located very close to the Fieldhouse, and was a great location for a pre-concert dinner. The building is older, and beautiful..almost elegant. The service was very good. Unfortunately, we found the food to be expensive for the quality we received. We had scallops appetizer, mac and cheese, and steaks. While... More

This was an awesome experience. Great service and even greater food. The selection is amazing. Business dinner of 12 so we ordered a bunch of apps. They were all amazing. The sides and main courses were equally fantastic. You must have the maygu beef. It is amazing. Service was superior.

I was disappointed with the actual quality of the meal. Reading reviews had me hyped up to have a better quality meal then I experienced. The delmonico steak had very little flavor. The lobster mac & cheese was a big disappointment. The lobster in the seafood starter was tough and did not taste very fresh. Service was good.

We ate brunch there before Colts game. Very friendly hostess and waiter. Food was good but not great! Will probably not return for the brunch... Maybe will try dinner.

Beautiful space , great for people watching and still an amazing piano player! We ordered too much food for just the two of us and that would of been nice to be told that the appetizers and sides feed four or more not two...see pictures. Calamari and rock shrimp appetizer amazing, just too much! They need to offer 1/2 sizes.... More

Prime 47...Indy's Steakhouse is Indianapolis's only locally owned & operated Prime Steakhouse. In addition to our wonderful steaks we offer a variety a fresh seafood and an extensive wine list. What really sets Prime 47 apart from other Indy steakhouses is our staff. Our servers work in teams of two to ensure that every guests has the Prime Experience. Set in the Majestic Building, Prime 47...Indy's Steakhouse is a site to behold. Built in 1895 for the Indiana Gas Company, this unique building has a lot to offer. From its original tile floors, marble columns and 18-foot windows to view Pennsylvania and Maryland Streets, the atmosphere starts from the ground up. Prime 47 is one of the few downtown Indianapolis steakhouses that features live music nightly.
