Owner of St. Elmo Steakhouse, Craig Hughes called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” to dish about which players and celebs have been dining at the Indianapolis hotspot during Super Bowl week.

St. Elmo’s Steakhouse is the restaurant that everyone is talking about in Indianapolis. It is located in the heart of all the craziness, just 3 blocks from Lucas Oil Stadium, where the big game will take place on Sunday. Craig tells us that with more than 150,000 people descending on the city, they are trying the best they can to accommodate everybody.

Earlier in the week, both star quarterbacks were spotted in the restaurant. “Tom Brady was here with about 28 of his teammates and then Eli Manning was here with about 20 of his teammates at the same time,” Craig says. He also mentioned that “American Idol” judge Steven Tyler and his fiancé Erin Brady had also been there last night.

But just because you are a celeb doesn’t mean you will get a table, Al Roker was actually turned away last weekend. “He tried to get in Saturday, but we couldn’t get him in,” Craig tells us. Ryan then got the “Today Show” weatherman on the line to see what’s going on in Indy and what weather predictions he has for game day.

Al tells us that the Indianapolis locals have been very welcoming and friendly. “Everybody is very happy, they are wearing those knitted scarves, the weather is nice, everybody is excited about that,” he says. So, what can we expect for the kick off? Al predicts, “Outside there may be a few showers, temperatures will be in the mid 40s, but inside it’s going to be perfect.” The stadium has a retractable roof!
