Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "My husband and I had the most amazing dinner at cast iron a month or so ago and we eager to go again. From the very beginning, the experience was completely different. The waitress seemed in a hurry and unknowledgable. I ordered my bacon wrapped filet medium well, it came out and was literally deep purple inside. I of couse sent it back. They brought it out 10 minutes later and while still too pink in the middle, now it was well done on the outside. The waitress and manager were very apologetic, and it was taken off of my bill. They offered to make another steak as well, but I declined and had them box up my ruined dinner. When I inquired if there was a new chef, the manager confirmed. Truly a dissapointing evening!"

  • "One can always count on great steaks at the Cast Iron Steakhouse and our dining experience was no exception. Our server was gracious and hospitable doing a fine job of serving our table. Had a delightful evening. The only disappointment was the lack of wifi."

  • "Recently enjoyed Cast Iron Steakhouse for the first time. The food was delicious especially the steaks, I had the filet which was cooked perfectly. The service was good, our server seemed to have more tables than the other servers so it seemed there was a long wait time between taking our appetizers and food orders but other than that, the evening was very enjoyable. You receive a lot of food for the money since the meals come with side and salad. Looking forward to our next time to eat there."

  • "Always dependable prime steak cooked to order. Shrimp cocktail with spice sauce. Service friendly and certainly sophisticated. The best part of the meal is the ability to bring your own wine with only a $15 corkage fee."

  • "This was our first visit. The menu had a wide variety for everyone. Three of the four of us had enough for another meal. The restaurant was a little crowded. The outside dining gave you a view of the street. Not really appealing."

  • "We made the drive from Fern Creek because of a coupon. We arrived for a late lunch just as they opened on a Sat (3:00pm) because we read it gets busy during the evenings. There were only a few other diners at that time, so the service was great and the food was outstanding. My wife said her steak (Cast Iron Filet) was the best she had ever had! I ordered the spicy Talapia/crab dish, and it was very good also. The sides were also great. The bread and butter they brought while we waited for our entrees was so good I had the be careful not to fill up on it! I wish they were open a little earlier on Saturdays, but it was worth the wait, and I needed the extra appetite because of all the food! We will definitely be back, coupon or not!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The food is definitely very good to excellent; however, service is slow - the waitress was friendly and efficient, but the lapse between menu distribution and ordering was long. This was my second experience at Cast Iron. Service this visit was faster than the previous visit's 1 and 1/2 hour lapse between ordering and meal service. (Yes, I'm surprised I returned, too!) Fortunately on that visit, we had a birthday cake, which the group consumed after the appetizer and before the meal - the wait staff/management seemed oblivious and made excuses. Also, the seating is very tight - backs of chairs at one table touch backs of chairs at adjacent tables - fortunately most in our party were small. I recommend Cast Iron if you have plenty of time!"

  • "Our first experience at Cast Iron Steakhouse was just that, our first of many anticipated evenings dining there. Made reservations for 7:30 on a Saturday night and our table for four was ready when we arrived. The wait service was excellent; the waitress was knowledgeable about the items on the menu and was very courteous and engaging. Our salads arrived promptly. The house salad was delicious; much better than the "house" salad I anticipated. My steak was cooked perfectly as ordered. My wife and another member of our party ordered the Hot Brown and were very impressed. Real turkey! Unfortunately, we were too full to order from the enticing dessert menu. Next time! And there will definitely be a next time."

  • "This was my 8th time here. I go because the steaks are pretty good and it is very close to my house. If it were not close to home, I would not go there. The entrees are usually pretty good and the side dishes are almost always not good. I have learned to get a steak, baked potato and side salad. My big complaint is that they keep hiring servers who appear to have never served before. Over the past few times there, it seems that the service get worse, something I would not think possible. You pay $30 a person on average for the meal and get Steak n Shake service, if you are lucky. Don't get me wrong, the servers are nice, but they are very inexperienced and not what you would expect at all."

This time when we arrived it appeared there were no open tables at the moment and rather than make us wait the manager offered us two seats at the bar and boy was the service great. Both bartenders really were attentive and made the whole evening very enjoyable. We'll be coming back! "
