    We ordered strip steak, Delmonico steak, 1 dessert and a bottle of Malbec. Both steaks included a salad and a side. For my salad I chose the Caesar salad; my friend, the house salad. The Romaine lettuce and croutons were lightly dressed with a mixture of oil, parmesan cheese, lemon juice, garlic, and black pepper so that both the lettuce and croutons remained crisp. My medium rare Delmonico was right on; my friend's medium rare strip steak, likewise. He chose the potato cake - crisp on the outside, tender potato goodness on the inside. I chose the sauted spinach that was tender, neither raw nor soggy and not oily or buttery either. My companion opted for dessert - an over the top version of brownie ala mode. Total cost - $80.53 + tip.

    Our third visit to Cast Iron Steakhouse and this time we took 5 other adults and a 3 week old baby. We gave our server a workout but he met all of our needs...Bravo! The food was fantastic as usual. We had salads, steaks, salmon, chicken, burgers, all delicious and the asparagus was outstanding for this time of year.

    The homemade Thousand Island dressing was the best I've had in years. I can hardly wait to go back for a "big salad". We both had the ribeye steak and it was okay, but we would try something different the next time. We do not prefer the peeling in our mashed potatoes so we would likely get the baked potato the next time. The serving of green beans was family size and they were actually tender and enjoyable!Also the Bloody Mary was delicious as was the bread and the garlic butter!

    We traveled to Louisville for a few days away and tried Cast Iron Steakhouse for dinner. We ordered the Seafood Stuffed Mushrooms appetizer which was very nice. My wife ordered the Blackened Salmon with asparagus and was very impressed. I tried it and it was moist and very tasty. I ordered the special of the day which was a New York Strip with Tiger Shrimp. It was prepared perfectly and was seasoned just right. We also had salads. The salads were not much to talk about, with mostly iceberg lettuce, but the Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette was very good. Overall, a very nice dining experience.

    We began our meal with seafood stuffed mushrooms. Terrific. I had the dinner special - half a fried chicken with two sides. I chose cole slaw (not great)and mashed potatoes that were great. They were loaded with bacon bits, seemed like a loaded baked potato, and the portion was huge. All for $13.99. My friend had the spicy tilapia and my husband had a patty melt both of which were generous and tasty. We ate on the front porch. It was nice to be outside, but the traffic was noisier than I expected. Our waitress was friendly, helpful and prompt. We enjoyed ourselves and will be going back again soon.

    Cast Iron Steakhouse is a fantastic restaurant. Being a local Louisvillian my entire life, this restaurant had the capability of making me feel like I was on vacation especially with the great seafood options and the lovely interior decor. The food was exquisite, and I loved the unique maple balsamic dressing. The service was wonderful, as well. My husband had 5 refills of sweet tea, and he never had to request for more. We intend to become regulars at this restaurant.

    Both of us orders steaks med rare. they came out a little over cooked. the server immediately removed them and we had fresh steaks cooked perfectly within a short time. Things like this can happen however it is how that issue is dealt with that is important and they had it all in hand. Later during our meal the Manager came over and express her regrets over the steaks and hoped we were enjoying our meal. Really nice follow up. A nice evening - their Maple Vinaigrette dressing ROCKS!

    This place came very highly recommended and we loved it. I had dinner here with a group of 10 friends. The salmon in chili sauce feature was excellent. My only complaint is that my drink and my water glass were both empty before I finished. The waitress was busy and I didn't ask for more water.

    This was my second visit to this restaurant; both times I was in a group. My waiter was very knowledgeable about the wines, menu offerings, and provided excellent recommendations. He was friendly and a conscientious server. We weren't sure what kind of wine we wanted and the bartender offered an impromptu wine tasting to help us decide. She poured 4-5 different wines to allow us to try and explained the differences between them. The food was fantastic...the steaks were perfectly cooked, shrimp was fresh & fantastic, everybody in our party exclaimed "We need to come back here!" Couldn't have had a better experience.

    I took my boyfriend here and saw great reviews. It wasnt crowded at all and we were able to sit right down. The appetizer [queso] was great, but the steaks dissapointed us. The filet was OK, and the Ribeye was so salty that my boyfriend could barely eat it. He gave me a try and I felt the same way. We mentioned something to the waiter but he didnt seem to care. Probably won't return because when I spend $75 including tip on a meal I want it to be nearly perfect.

    This was not first time at Cast Iron; not even this week. Food is good to very good. Does vary from each visit. I am writing however because of the outstanding service and service style of Chris our waiter. Food prep and description was clearly explained and not overly euphemistic, requests were remembered and addressed in a timely maneer etc. Most importantly I witnessed his handling of what I know from my years in FOH as a "difficult" customer. (Everything off the menu and "on the side"). Cudos Chris!

    Our first experience at Cast Iron Steakhouse was amazing! The food was prepared to our request and delicious! Steak was melt-in-your-mouth delicious and vegetables and salad were fresh! We were celebrating an adult family member's birthday but also had and 11 and 13 year old with us as well as an infant grandchild in tow and the staff were wonderfully accomodating and friendly! Our waitress checked with us frequently throughout the meal and with a smile and positive attitude that made us feel as though we were the most important customers of the evening! I would return in a heartbeat and also highly recommend Cast Iron to others!

    My son and I ate there at 4:30. we were the only ones there at the time, by the time we left I believe there were 4 other groups there. The service was very good, but we were the only ones there when we arrived. The food was excellent. My son had the Colossal burger and fries, I had the 10 oz Delmonico steak and a very good house salad with homemade Ranch dressing. My son said the burger was excellent, as were the seasoned fries, he couldn't stop eating them until they was all gone! My steak was cooked to perfection and was delicious! The prices are in-line with most other good steak places. We will definitely be back, and I will bring my wife next time.
