  • "Great food & service every time we eat there. Most of our family events such as birthdays, Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc., we always end up here for dinner."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Prompt seating with our reservation, very pleasant and professional service with good suggestions. The food was excellent. Overall, the special time with family and friends was enhanced by the people and food at Cast Iron Steakhouse on River Road."

  • "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."

  • "All six of our meals were excellent which ranged from fish, chicken to steak. Our waiter, Chris, could not have be not have been more attentive in making our evening with old friends quite enjoyable and catering to our every need. I would highly recommend the Cast Iron Steakhouse if you are looking for an excellent meal in a very comfortable/quiet setting."

  • "My wife and I made reservations to come try Cast Iron again. 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! "

  • "We have dinned and had brunch here many times before this visit. Perhaps it was because it was Mother's Day but our service was slow and our order needed several corrections once it was brought out. Once we did have our food, the potatoes were just lukewarm. Our other trips there have been great but this time was a bit of a disappointment. "

  • "This was our first visit to Cast Iron Steakhouse on River Road. The food was excellent and we could not believe that our server had only been serving for 3 weeks. She was excellent. Always present when needed. Great personality! We will definitely return. "

  • "The menu on line said one price for the dish, when we were charged a higher price when we received our bill. ($8.99 Fish Sandwich Crispy fried panko‎ dusted cod w/ on toasted rye bread w/ our basil tartar sauce) is what I ordered, when we got the bill they charged me 10.99 plus an extra $1 for cheese which wasn't mentioned at the time of ordering. So the fish sandwich actually cost $11.99 and it came with chips! Another side would have been extra too. Our server seemed stressed and was sweating, making it feel like you should hurry up, not relaxed. Tables are too close together. The steak my husband ordered was a little chewy, but we didn't say anything because our server only came to the table once during our time."

  • "This place is a must for people who love great steaks. The 15 oz ribeye was cooked perfectly. The service was phenomenal, which is something I've come to expect in Louisville. All told this place was great in so many ways the only way to describe it is to say that you MUST try it for yourself. "

  • "We took our family for a special occasion, and had a 12pm reservation. Only 2 other tables in the place that had guests, so it was not busy. Took 15 minutes before we ordered drinks, & another 20 minutes before we got menus. I explained that we needed to leave by 1:15 for a 1:30 church service - He took our order at exactly 12:40 - so 40 minutes at the table before we were served a drink and submitted an order. We were served our brunch at 1:05 - and essentially had about 10 minutes to eat before we have had to leave for our event. It was embarrassing for us in front of our guests to ask them to "eat quickly". In the end the meal wasn't great - I expect better, as this isn't my first time here - but it was my last."

  • "We ate at Cast IRon Steakhouse on Sat evening. Food and service was excellent. My husband and I each had a steak which was prepared perfectly. Friends has the chicken and ground steak and were extremely pleased with that. Overall great experience. Our only complaint was that when we went on Open Table to book our reservation, it said no tables were available from 5-7:15, but when we left at 6 there were plenty of open tables which had been open the whole time we were there. We would have rather dined later than 4:30, but still enjoyed our dinner."

  • "We recently visited the restaurant for a Saturday evening dinner. Our table was ready when we arrive and the service was good. The food however, was just mediocre. I ordered the tilapia with crab meat and shrimp. While there was some shrimp, there was very little crab meat. I would not order it again. Another member of our party ordered a delmonico steak. That was chewy and had too much gristle. We have eaten here before and not had this experience. Perhaps just a bad night. We probably will not rush back."
