I wish I had made other arrangements for this evening. The server was conscientious when problems were pointed out."

  • "My friends and I usually dine at Cast Iron Steakhouse, River Road, before attending the PNC Broadway Shows. We make a reservation there, and are seated very promptly--and the service is always prompt and efficient. Also, the food is excellent,including the steak. We usually order the New York Strip. We would highly recommend it to anyone."

  • "While the larger than life sandwiches at a fair price were a plus...the service lacked. Out reservation was lost and there was no compensation for this oversight. Staff were friendly enough, however lacked the professionalism of a 'steak house.' I will probably not return unless invited to a social gathering."

  • "We had tried to eat there previously, yet had no reservation, so this time was a special occasion and we told our guest what we had read about the place and it was bound to be a good experience, so we made a reservation. When we arrived, we were promptly seated at the designated time. Then we waited. Servers walked right past our table, not even making eye contact for ten minutes. Not even a glass of water. Finally, I got up and said something to the manager who went in the back and found a server. They gave us a couple of glasses of wine for the oversight, but it was a bad first impression, and as they say "you only have one chance to make a good first impression." Food was OK, but I've had better at Longhorn Steakhouse."

  • "We had reservations but was placed in bar others arrived after us and were immediatly seated in the dining room.The wait staff was inattentive and forgetful.It was a bad night all around.I paid the bill left a 20% tip and then told the manager of the experience but he did not seem to be concerned.We will not be back to many other good restaurants in Louisville."

  • "I am NEVER disappointed in Cast Iron! I visited with a friend one recent weeknight and enjoyed my usual tomato bisque with blue cheese soup and one of the best filets around. I also can't say enough about the attentive and friendly servers, hosts and bartenders. I live close by and treasure having fine dining just up the road."

  • "Myself & many of my friends have always been huge fans but, this is the second time we have gone there on a Sunday and had very poor service. It took us over two hours to have brunch. This is only due to the fact that they one had one server again ?? ? Our group of 8 was again very disappointed ."

  • "I love the location, the service was great, the salad, fresh and delicious, and the bread and garlic butter, very good. But the steak, well...I know I could get better at Ponderosa...which isn't saying much! It was probably the lowest grade meat, no flavor. We also ordered fish, which tasted as if it was frozen and reheated. I couldn't eat it and brought my portion home to my dogs."

  • "Took my girlfriend here for Valentine's day. We were in and out in under 45 minutes. Amazing food and very fast service! Looked like a little neighborhood favorite on the outside, but was rather fancy on the inside. Combined with the Pink Floyd style music, you wouldn't think it would all mesh, but it actually worked for this cool little restaurant down by the river."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Overall a positive experience.. However, there were definitely some aspects that should have been better. First, it took nearly 20 minutes after we were seated for a server to come take our drink order. When he arrived he began complaining about another table and his workload before really even introducing himself. Next the steakhouse was out of NY Strip Steaks.. We'd both planned on ordering Strip steaks.. Kinda felt like a pizza place running out of cheese. Aside from that we had a positive experience."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Food was delicious. I had the filet steak it was cooked to order and so tender. Vegetables were cooked to taste not over cooked we went for valentines day dinner and already planing a return visit for dinner"

  • "On 2/8/14 we made a reservation for 4 at 8:30 pm. We arrived about 8:25 and the place was packed. At 8:45 we were finally seated. The waiter took our orders. My 2 children ordered the sirloin off the kids menu with fries. When the orders arrived the server did not bring one of the kids meals and forgot it. After 5 minutes the waiter came out & apologized he forgot to put in 2 of the meals and he'd get it right out. I gave my daughter my steak to eat in the mean time and made sure the waiter noticed. 5 minutes later he brought out a tiny/overcooked sirloin, obviously rushed. We waited patiently for him to comeback to ask for some ketchup for fries, but never did. After 10 minutes we had to ask the next table for theirs. Out of space."

  • "My wife and I and another couple had a nice dining experience. The black and blue pasta was excellent. About 10 minutes late in seating us on our reservation. Friendly staff and that did not rush us at the end of our dining. Highly recommend. Good food and prices."

  • "This was the second time i have been here, the first time was new years eve. I would describe it as a nice road house atmosphere. Kinda noisy and tables are close to each other. The food is great, I got the filet and shrimp scampi the first time, this time I got the pork tenderloin wrapped in spinach, cream cheese and bacon, AWESOME! Even though they are very busy, the wait staff is very friendly and knowledgable, they don't rush you, always smiling. I think this will be a favorite spot for me and my husband in the future. We totally enjoyed our experience and will be back again!"

  • "I wasn't expecting much since neither of us is a steak eater but the restaurant was on the way home from the theater so my wife and I thought we could stop and certainly find something besides steak on the menu. The manager Roy and server Robbie were extremely friendly yet not overbearing...just enough attention. Luckily the special of the evening was a cajun style light white fish sauteed perfectly with 3 nice size cajun shrimp on rice pilaf. The sauce complimented it perfectly. House made dressing were quite good though I wish there was less ice berg and more mixed greens in the salad. Wine and beer lists were more than adequate. Atmosphere was very comfortable...we would certainly return again."

  • "We arrived on time for our reservation, and got seated immediately. Unfortunately, it went down hill from there. Ordered queso for our app. Chesse was good, but the chips were so greasy they were hard to eat. For dinner my wife ordered the Delmonico, and I had the New York Strip. Both were cooked perfectly, but my New York Strip was tough even though cooked medium rare. My wife had the creamed spinach which she enjoyed. I had the fries. Fries were average, not homemade or fresh. The ambience is a little loud, and the tables are all too close together. The service was very lackluster. We will cross this steakhouse off the list of go toos."

  • "Consistently good food, the steak salad is always a good choice and the small filet is always tender."
