Editorial review from Citysearch 2/12/2013

Not Impressed. The prime rib was basically tough and taseless. The french onion soup was lukewam and didn't have any cheese on it. The only good thing was the bread and salads. My partner had the filet with bourbon sauce. Why ruin a good piece of meat with sauce?? I don't think it belongs in any top-10 lists!! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/23/2012

I went to Bynums the other night for dinner and it was wonderful. I have the filet and it was so tender you could cut it with a fork. I was surprised by the amount of food we got for the price. It was well with it and we will go again ( : more

Not impressed 4/25/2012

I had heard good things about Bynum's Steak House from others, so I was happy to be invited there for lunch by some friends. I found the atomophere to be too dark and gloomy, and there was classic rock/pop playing at lunch that was really too loud. My cheeseburger was overcooked -- I ordered it medium -- rather tasteless and greasy, and very hard to eat, as the bun was too small for the burger and the whole thing fell apart in my hands. Even cutting it in half didn't help. The bottom of the hamburger bun was soaked in grease, too. \r \r Maybe this place is better for dinner -- say, a prime rib or steak, but I'm not in a hurry to go back. They could use an upgrade on the decor to lighten it up a bit. more

Won't go back... 2/14/2011

My husband made reservations for us to visit Bynums on Valentines Day weekend. After driving 45 minutes, we arrived on time for our 7:15 reservation. When we ordered our prime rib we were told they were out...what? A prime rib steak house and your out at 7:15? I was told that we should've ""reserved"" our prime rib when we made reservations. I've never been told I had to ""reserve"" food when I make a reservation. Why didn't someone tell us when we called that we were supposed to ""reserve"" our prime rib? So, my husband and I both ordered the steak and shrimp...medium. When it arrived I got a glorified hockey puck with four pieces of shrimp. The steak was about the quality of a Walmart steak. It was not good at all. This was a $27 meal. We spoke to the manager who deducted the price of just my steak and our bottle of wine from the bill. He told us next time to make sure we ""reserve"" our prime rib. To me this was like going to Kentucky Fried Chicken and they tell you they have no chicken. I won't need to ""reserve"" my prime because I won't be going back. more

Best Steakhouse in Indy 11/20/2009

I recently dined at Bynum's for the first time. A friend highly recommended the place....Oh my goodness, it was amazing. Our waiter knew exactly which bottle of wine would compliment both of our meals!! I, of course had to see what all the hype was about with the prime rib! I have loved prime rib since I was a child, and this was BY FAR, the BEST prime rib I have ever eaten. It is big enough for two people, or you can take it home for later! The cute little ""swan"" to go foil was a nice touch too. Overall, my experience was a 10!! I will be dining there on a regular basis!! Good job guys! Pros: Affordable, Great service more


I LOVE THIS RESTAURANT!!! I know steaks and this place is the best in the tristate area. I'm guessing they age the beef in excess of maybe 40 days to get that kind of flavor and tenderness. Whatever it is - it's good. Would recommend it to anyone who knows beef and enjoys a healthy portion cooked to temperature. Service seems to be better in the last year or so too. So whatever your doing keep it up and I'll keep coming back. By the way, the singe your sinsus cocktail sauce is to die for and the shrimp are the biggest I've tasted that do not taste mushy. And I really like the new homemade cheesecake. Our waiter said they make it right there. Yummmm. Pros: EDUCATED STAFF Cons: not enough parking more

Save a few $$, Eat the Best & Feel Better About It 9/19/2007

Husband's birthday. Can't spend a fortune on dinner but he LOVES prime rib, shrimp cocktail, etc. Decided to buy a prime rib that is literally ""platter sized"" and thrill my hubby. More food than one human can devour in one sitting but always cooked perfectly, always delicious. Yes, they are very busy as the word continues to accelerate more growth, but, worth the wait I assure you. So, happy couple. I have some $$ left over for a nicer gift AND provide hubby with an outstanding evening with friends and nice big prime rib dinner. Thanks Bynum's!! Pros: Huge portions. Welcomes ""sharing"" meals for minimal cost. Home-like atmosphere. Cons: Sometimes too busy to handle amount of customers, so make reservations. more

Really good steak, a few flaws 4/17/2007

I'd like to start out by saying that I've been going to Bynum's since I was a little girl. My family always went there for special occasions, and last Sunday was no different. It was my 28th birthday. I love steak and their ribeye is great. I always take new friends there for dinner.\r That changed last Sunday:\r \r Our service was pretty good, until the end, when we received our check. Our server mentioned that other servers usually automatically add gratuity (which they never have before) but that she didn't, and if she had, the amount was off to the side in case we wanted to see what it would have been. In other words, she was telling us how much to tip her. Normally we tip around 20-23% if we have good service, and we did, I just found it extremely tacky to mention a tip after dinner.\r \r The second problem was a mix up on our friends order. He had ordered a cabernet wine off the list, and it turned out they had two of the same brand of wine, both cabernet, but different years. One was 25.00 and one was 50.00 and she had brought him the 50.00 wine and he didn't realize it till we got the bill. (The wine sat on the table the entire time with a napkin on it, so it's not like we made note of the label) Our server said that was what he ordered, and that she could fix the problem, but it was what he ordered. When we saw the itemized list, it just said ""brand name"" and cab- $49.50. She said it was a new wine and she didn't know. \r \r That mixup coupled with the tip comment leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Pros: Steak, Portions Cons: Atmosphere more

Wonderful evening 9/17/2005

Value 5/5/2004

If your looking for great food and even better value you can't find a better place. FORGET standing in line at all the other places and waiting for a good steak... come, sit, and enjoy a GREAT steak(and lobster too). Just plan on taking more then half of it with you when you leave Pros: value, price, portions more

A little bit of Heaven 4/27/2004

Steak so tender you could cut it with a fork, soup to die for, baked potatoes that are a meal in themselves, and salad that is unique, and delious. Pros: quality of product, cute cow out front Cons: , location, location more

best steak 8/13/2003

i have eaten at most of the top steak houses in this city and for the money Bynums steak is as good as any. Pros: great food, good portions, good servers Cons: slow service more

Consistant 3/6/2003

I have gone to Bynum's for years and Consistancy is the key. I don't believe I have ever been disapointed in anyway during a visit there. It may not be the fanciest but it is the most consistantly best steak you will ever eat! Pros: Fairly Priced Cons: Atmosphere more

awesome prime rib 1/13/2003

Fantastic 24oz prime ribs that are cut 2 inches thick! Prices are reasonable... and the filet with shrimp is also perfect (10oz filet!) more

Just Average 1/2/2003

The place is average. The sitting area is very dark and the service can be EXTREMELY slow. The food is good, not great, but not bad. The best entre I have eaten there is the steakburgers. I would rate their steaks just average. They don't compare to Elmo's or Shulas. Pros: good steakburgers Cons: slow service more

My favorite steak place 11/1/2002

I love Bynum's. The food is the best you'll find. The service is professional and the place is spotless. I love the individual pitchers of your soft drink choice that they bring you too...nice touch! Pros: Excellent Quality, Plenty of seating, Super Clean Cons: Slow to greet you more
