Just needed a snack as we were leaving Indianapolis and this Stead 'n Shake filled the bill. Good renditions of the corporate menu with all the expected items.

My husband and I have not eaten ate Steak n Shake since we were kids. Now we are kicking ourselves for missing out all these years. SOOO much better than any of the other drive-thru chains. I am in love with the new Portobello and Swiss. This location is a perfect stop for us on our twice weekly drives from... More

We've only used the drive-thru, but it is an okay Steak 'n Shake option. The service is a bit slower than other fast food alternatives, but the food is fairly consistently tasty. Our raspberry/chocolate shake was very good, and so was the chocolate/banana; though it needed a better mixing of the flavors. The fries were the usual thin and flavorful.... More

4 stars for this visit. Not really a "steak" burger, but always dependable for good food. I always use the coupons for a better deal which makes it cheaper than the lower line "fast" food places. Better food, but not more money! Just takes a bit longer at times. I recommend during the happy hour as service is a little... More

This is one of our alternative after a movie, but also open 24 hours a day. While it looks like a fast food place on the outside, each meal is cooked to order....fine salads, milkshakes, multiple hamburgers and fries, chili, and hot dogs. Drive through while cooked to order is still fairly fast. Eating inside is typically quite good with... More

This is a great place to eat. I like to go there with friends or family and just hang out and enjoy a burger. It is especially great when nothing else is open!

I know it's a sit down, serve your lunch on China, and have the services of a waitress. Unfortunately, it just moves slow. The grilled chicken salad was delicious, and the kids meal was all right.

We have ran the circuit of breakfast places around Westfield, Steak-n-Shake exceeds them all! The food is excellent, staff friendly and attentive, and most importantly the prices are appropriate! No more paying $10 for an omelet! We'll be here every Saturday morning we're home! They were understaffed the last Saturday morning we were there, and we still had a great... More

Good alternative to fast food. Sit down- be served-china place settings. Reasonable price options for smaller quantities. The store was clean and the service was good.
