    Great addition to the area. We hosted a party of 10. Everyone liked what they had. Lamb chops, salmon, steak, salads and sides. My wife especially liked the 6 oz fillet. My NY Strip could have been better but they are just starting out and will improve. Prices were reasonable. We will definitely return soon!

    This restaurant shows that Franklin and Simpson County can finally have some fine dining with excellent food, and the service was as good as you can get in Kentucky.

    Overall, incredible dining experience. I’ll start with the only three flaws and then end on a good note. First there was a gentleman at the bar that had way too much to drink, or perhaps something else, that had to be helped out. Not the eatery’s fault, but still took away from the experience. Second, one of the items my wife ordered was steak fries. They were cooked well but the grease had obviously not been changed in some time, because what we thought was seasoning on the fries turned out to be old, burnt remnants of previous cooks, causing the fries to just taste like burnt fries, even though they weren’t. And lastly, they had 4 draft beers taps, but only one was functional, and it was Stella Artois. As a craft beer fan, I was looking forward to the craft selections, but the had none, and I ended up with Michelob Ultra. Now for the good news! Our stuffed mushroom appetizer was good, but could have use a touch more seasoning. The prime rib and havarti were the main flavors here and shown through nicely, and the sauce was a good addition. My wife’s burger was “unique and delicious!” I ordered the New York Strip cooked medium, as well as the brown butter risotto. The steak was phenomenal, even though it was closer to medium well than medium. The seasoning and crust on the steak were very flavorful and delicious, with the fat well rendered. My risotto was probably the star of the night. Cooked beautifully, and well seasoned, I will definitely order it again. Alex, our server, was kind, and very helpful. He did a good job of being attentive, without being overwhelming and allowing us time to enjoy our meal. Overall the positives far outweighed the negatives, and we look forward to our next visit.

    The salmon I ordered was over cooked and dry. I wasn’t a fan of the sweet yellow sauce that accompanied it. Husband got prime rib which was very good. The asparagus however were extremely big, not tender, and tasteless. We smelled a bit smoky when we left. I don’t think anyone was smoking in the restaurant but smoke came in from the gambling area outside.

    Very nice place. They held a private event so the only downside to our experience is that they were not ready for us at our reserved time. Once we were in everything was fine. We had great seating, our server was very professional but nice and welcoming. We will definitely be returning.

    Steaks were delicious. One person in our party ordered his steak well done and he said it was cooked to perfection. I had the prime rib and it was melt in your mouth good. The loaded baked potato was huge. And we had the cheesecake for dessert. OMG! Delicious. Our waiter was very friendly, helpful with selections, and very attentive to keep beverage glasses filled and checking back frequently to see if we needed anything. Would definitely return.

    We're new to the area and tried the cafe during our last visit. We wanted something a little tastier and it was my husband's birthday so we decided to give it a try. We did try to walk up and be seated but was told we couldn't be seated without a reservation on the app. I feel bad for the older generation if this is how it always is. 👎 I still gave everything 5 stars because the service was excellent 👌. Now the food... We're empty nesters and eat out often and this was the best ribeye and butter risotto we have ever had. The cook on the steak was absolutely spot on. The risotto was cooked to perfection and melted perfectly in your mouth. This restaurant is worth the money, which isn't bad if you share or want to splurge a little. 😉

    This was the second time we had dinner at Irons Steakhouse. The first time was an outstanding experience from top to bottom. So, we made reservations for a second time to have date night. Seemed they were short staffed and we sat with NO ONE approaching the table for 20 minutes. Our waitress, while very nice and gave good service, said she did not know we had been seated. There were 3 other wait staffers walking all around and yet no one seemed to think it was odd that we had not been approached for service. The other issue we had is cigarette smoke. The restaurant is part of the Kentucky Downs casino which allows smoking and when I say smoking it is a killer. They have no air filtration system or smoke eaters ..... or if they do the system is not working. The first time we ate at the restaurant there was no smell of smoke at all. This second time the smoke was so overwhelming that I asked the waitress if they had started allowing smoking in the restaurant.... she said no BUT the smoke smell was so powerful it started giving us both a massive headache. Now.... .there is a positive end to this story..... once our waitress finally started waiting on us she was great. Very service oriented. AND just like our first visit the food was outstanding. Based primarily on the smoke issue I can not recommend this restaurant to non smokers because you will NOT enjoy the experience. I will give them another shot because the food is very good.

    The lights were a lot brighter than any other times I’ve been there. Much better when it was not as bright. It would also be very nice for a small salad to be included with the meal. Other than those two things, it is as always, absolutely wonderful.
