St. Elmo's Steak House St. Elmo Steak House has been a downtown landmark since opening in 1902. Named after the patron saint of sailors St. Elmo, the tiger oak back-bar still gives the place a feel of the old Chicago style steak houses. Founded by Joe Stahr as a small tavern it has grown into one of the top chop houses in the US. All entrées are served with Navy Bean or Tomato soup and Baked Potato, House Cut-Fries, Redskin Mashed, or Green Beans. Had the Navy Bean soup, delicious, and the Redskin Mashed along with my Bone-In Dry Aged Cowboy Ribeye. I usually have no problem finishing what is put in front of me but the ribeye did me in. I also need to mention the appetizer they are famous for, it is a 15.95 shrimp cocktail with their own house-made horseradish cocktail sauce. Word of warning, it is out of this world hot. Of course my first bite I had the shrimp loaded up and it took all of 4 sec for the fires of hell to suck the oxygen right out of me. Thru the tears I could not stop eating it, its addictive. I am certain reservations are needed the bar and restaurant were packed to the corners all night. Very warm and comfortable, old school steak house.
Hell hath no fury like this Shrimp Cocktail
