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

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 ( :

the meal started with bad service - we ordered the ribeye steak i should have asked for shoe leather it would have had better flavor and not as tough to cut -we told the waiter and he couldn't care -baked potatoe was not freshly baked , maybe two days ago- onion soup was the same rather old -desert was same as everything else awful -what a waste of good money

Everything I've ever ordered at my south side Bynum's has always been excellent, and the service has consistently been superb. They grow 'em well on Indy's south side! Plus, for additional entertainment, there are the AMC movie theaters right down the street, including one of only three IMAX screens in Central Indiana!

Went with a group last night, very disappointing. The worst porterhouse steak I have ever had. It was tough and unchewable, the couple across the table from me had the same experience. When the waiter asked how the meal was, he basically blew off our comments. With no futher comments we paid the bill and left. Will not return or recommend.

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

This place is just average. If you like iceburg lettuce salads and margarine, then this is the place for you. Real cuisine tends to include the best ingredients, so I wasn't surprised when everything I ordered was mediocre. I have had worse, but it's not St. Elmo's or Morton's. If you want an average meal at an average price, it fits the bill.

We celebrated my mother's 75th birthday at Bynum's on Saturday evening and she said, "it was the best birthday party I've every had". Bynum's went out of their way to make this a wonderful memory for our family. The private dining room gave us a warm atmosphere to give speeches, open gifts, sing Happy Birthday, and dine together. Two servers we assigned to our room and did an extremely nice job balancing our celebration with placing orders. As always the food was plentiful and delicious. Everyone loved the experience of walking out with their leftovers wrapped like a swan/cow's head. No complaints from the 31 people who attended. Bynum's definately earned some repeat business. We will be back!

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!

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.

This is a wonderful place to go for special occasions. If you are looking for a great meal with a quiet, subdued atmosphere, it works great. The strip steak is Delicious. I have spent many of my anniversary dinners here and will definitely be back for more.

We had such a good time here. The inside is very texas, ranch style (not in a bad way). Dark rich wood colors and big booths and chairs. We had appetizers, french onion soup, salad, huge prime rib, and dessert. I can't tell you what the bill was but I can tell you the food was DELICIOUS.

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.

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.
That changed last Sunday:

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.

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.

That mixup coupled with the tip comment leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

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

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.

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!

Fantastic 24oz prime ribs that are cut 2 inches thick!

Prices are reasonable... and the filet with shrimp is also perfect (10oz filet!)

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.

But inside the food is good. This is my husbands favorite restaurant. Just honest, straightforward beef. Portions are generous. The shrimp cocktail and sauce are to die for! There is almost always an extended wait between courses, but if you are sharing a meal with friends, that can be a good thing. The house salad has a strong bleu cheese flavor and large chunks of nuts. Very good, but you have to like bleu cheese.
