    I normally love the food here, but tonight not so good. Everyone`s salad at my table had very little in it. My stake was over cooked and my potato was barley warm. Another friend`s food was over cooked and my wife`s meatloaf was bland tasting. I hope this was just an off night. I will try it one more time, but if is another bad night it will be last time I eat there. On a good note the service was great.

    Perfect New York Strip Steak: cooked to order, tender, great flavor and piping hot. My husband enthused over everything, even the baked sweet potato! The salads were cool and crisp with a really special blue cheese dressing. Our server helped me pick a Cabernet to go with dinner, and it was a great choice. All around memorable service so seldom found these days. We felt as though we were in an English pub...friendly and welcoming. More visits planned for the future!

    Great steak dinner. Very good value as you get salad and one side included. Sides are delicious. Server attentive without being obtrusive. Close to our home, so we'll be back when we want steak. Steaks also cooked exactly as ordered. Medium had pink center and hot throughout. YUM!

    We came to Cast Iron Skillet to celebrate my daughters 19th birthday. What a pleasant evening. Our server, Samantha ,was excellent, the food was fabulous and timely. We had our 10 year old son along, and the kids menu is perfect, even includes ice cream! Perfect! And the Birthday girl got a free dessert! How perfect is that! We will be coming back again. Thank you again for a wonderful evening. The Allisons

    I went here for the first time with my husband and another couple. The service was inconsistent and the mahi tasted frozen and fishy. My husband ordered the ribeye. He had to dissect much of it but said the flavor was good. There are too many restaurants that do a better job with both steak and seafood that we will not be going back

    What a great find!!!! I found Cast iron on the internet and made reservation for our group of 12 (10 high school students and 2 adults). Our table was ready upon arrival. The wait staff was great. They were very attentive without being overbearing. The food was amazing. My steak was one of the best I have ever eaten. It was as good or better than one I had at a so-called "high end" steakhouse. Our party also ordered the pork loin which was fabulous. All steaks were cooked to perfection and the sides were just as good. We will return on our next trip to Louisville.

    Steak was tepid, potato the same, returned, came back the steak (most expensive one on the menu) was warmer (not hot) and the potato was colder. Suggest they use a hot double plate or something as I don't like eating cold food.

    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!
