Cast Iron Steakhouse - River Road Ratings and Reviews
Great food, good atmosphere.
Cheese fries were good, fried pickles were good too. NewYork Strip was tasty, had some fat on it but not much. Sirloin was tasty, my son ate it all. Meatloaf was a bit underdone, not very hot, but we didn't send it back, probably should have. Hot Brown was tasty, no complaints. Mac n cheese was really good but small. Overall, I will be going back.

Always good. Excellent 14oz strip. Great peach cobbler
My sauteed green beans were mushy, my martini was lukewarm and it really stuffy in there. No ventilation made it uncomfortable. The table next to us had food issues as well. My hopes were destroyed after it came highly recommended.

A little small inside, tables close to each other. Portion sizes smaller than expected. However, food was very good, dessert was great, it wasn't too loud (normal speaking voices from us/other diners), servers were excellent.

Cast iron is a place i would recommend for a great dining experience
Great for a date with that special person.
Wonderful dining experience with a unique atmosphere and the food is absolutely tasty! Add in the attentive and courteous staff it's sure to please the most selective diner. Thanks so much for making an evening with my special someone so memorable. We will most assuredly return.
Everything we ordered was wonderful.
Loaded fried, steak salad, NY strip all prepared to our liking. Will go back! Service was great!
Top notch and best around in every way. Travel over a hundred miles just to come to eat there almost monthly. Leave amazed every time.

Steak flavor was good but the steak had too much fat on it. Spinach side was covered in too many onions.
Excellent - every time!

Good salmon, tough streak.
First of all the stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer was excellent and the salmon was delightful. However; the $26.00 dollar steak was tough and lack flavor. The server was kind and attentive to our needs.
Slowww, no draft beers, mediocre ribeye
We just moved to Prospect so I wanted to try a local place while my parents were visiting on a Thursday night. Our party of 5 was seated around 6:45 and ordered pretty quickly and the food did not arrive until 7:50 despite a restaurant that was only 75% full. Our queso dip appetizer was pretty generic and the yellow corn tortilla chips were straight out of a bag and cold. The entrees ranged from Pecan Chicken (excellent) to a Delmonico Ribeye (overcooked, heavily marveled and tough, even for a ribeye). We all eat out quite a bit and are well informed on the Louisville restaurant scene and none of us will be going back. Better steaks and better values can be had elsewhere, even at the chain steakhouses.
Food and service is good, prices are good, location is good. Never disappointing!!
Went there for our anniversary. Entrees were very good,but sides and appetizer were very average. Service was good, but not great. Nothing you couldn't have gotten at any chain steakhouse. Prices are reasonable.
Jonathan was our waiter and he provided great service and excellent suggestions! He was very polite and helpful!

Been there several times, never been disappointed. Service and server were excellent. Always cleanse and food prepared exactly as ordered. Will return and pass on all the good things we enjoyed.
My family of 13 enjoyed Easter lunch at The Cast Iron Steakhouse, our waitress was fantastic, ready and able to provide us with quick service and ease at preparing everyones bills. I had the bacon wrapped fillet. It was awesome. Will be going back!
This is our third time to eat here and the first time that we were disappointed. Our server was great and did her best to make up for the kitchen. The kitchen was slow and the steaks were good but overcooked. Every place has a bad night and this was theirs.

Outstanding place and food
The food there was outstanding comma the steaks were seasoned just right and the appetizers were very good the stuffed mushrooms were awesome noodles with steak was very good the pork wrapped bacon was very delicious and the desserts were very good. B peach cobbler was the best dessert I've had anywhere. Their bourbon list was one of the best around. I would recommend this place 2 anyone for a great dining experience.

Second time visiting first time the food was better. My wife had the fish special which she didn't like due to highly seasoned sauce. My steak seemed undersized for the 9oz stated and was only average. Probably won't go back but the prices are very competitive.
Great Place for an excellent steak dinner
We decided to eat at the Cast Iron Steakhouse on a Sunday night. This was our first time trying out this restaurant so we approached this event wondering if this restaurant would meet our high expectations. The atmosphere was great with hardwoods everywhere. Some diners were seated on the outdoor terrace which, had we realized was available, would have asked to be seated outside on this beautiful night. The service was excellent! We were seated on time and the food and attention from the staff was spot on. My medium rare filet was done perfectly and wrapped with bacon making the flavor even better. The salad presentation and taste was great. We are looking forward to returning soon to this great restaurant
Not worth the wait...
We arrived on time for an 8:00 pm reservation and had to stand in the entryway (with two teens) for 30 mins. We understand that popular places can get behind on Saturday nights, but it was the attitude of the staff that bothered us. No apologies; no offer to buy us a drink. Our waiter had a flippant attitude, and was phoning it in. We also had to wait 30 mins for the entrees to arrive. Again, no apology or acknowledgment. The salads were great, but the steaks were meh. The waiter assured me that I could get the steak/shrimp special without the BBQ, but the steak was marinated with BBQ sauce and was terrible. I didn't send it back because I didn't want to wait yet again... We have been to this restaurant multiple times with mixed results. No one seems to recognize us, and we've never had a manager stop by to check on us or say welcome back. Although we love its location, bar and salads, I think we are done giving them "another shot". We waited a total of 60 mins for an average experience. The management and wait staff don't seem to care about our experience, so we don't care to go back.
Awesome food and service!
This was our first time dining at Cast Iron and we will definitely be back! It took a while to be seated even though we had a reservation, but other than this, the experience was great! The food was delicious and the service and friendliness of the staff was top notch! See you soon Cast Iron!!
We ate at Cast Iron Steakhouse for the first time last night. I ordered the 8 oz. Cast Iron Filet. It was the BEST steak I have ever had. It was wrapped on side with bacon and was so tender. I also enjoyed the Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing for my house salad. For my side I picked asparagus, which was good, but my husband picked the sweet potato and he said it was delicious. For dessert we shared the Bread Pudding, it was heavenly. We had a wonderful dinner. We will definitely come here again.

I had the ribeye and my friend had the pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon and it was delicious. Fabulous taste.
Food and Service were exceptional.
This was our first time at Cast Iron Skillet, we had tried to get reservations on three previous ocassion and now we know why it was so hard. The food and service was exceptional we had a shrimp cocktail 5 nice size shrimp with coctail sauce for $9.99, we also had Shrimp Oscar and it was very tasty. My wife had a filet and I had a ribeye both cooked to perfection and with amazing flavor. My wife usually puts A1 on all her steaks and she didin't on this one. The sear using the cast iron skillet was great locking the flavor in and creating thin crust on the outside.
Great get away from chain steak houses
We were going to go to one of the chain steak houses but due to probable long wait and negative prior experience with restaurant I looked at Open Table app on iphone and I was able to make a reservation for 6 with really short notice at the Cast Iron steak house. Food was very good and prices very reasonable but portions a little small which can be a good thing but if you are hungry when you go, consider getting appetizer as well. The bar area can be a little noisy but fun for the locals and people wanting to socialize. Really good experience overall---we will definitely be back!

5 friends & family went on a week night. We tried stuffed mushrooms with lots of cheese... Good but cheese was overwhelming. For dinner I had tilapia with crab which was very good. Others split the filet with sautéed & creamy spinach. Everything tasted delicious.

I had the delmonico 9 oz ribeye and my wife has the 6 oz filet. Both were perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection. Loaded baked potatoes and house salads were enjoyed by both of us. We had the shrimp cocktail as an appetizer which was excellent as well. No room for dessert this trip. We shared 2 desserts last time as we were dining with another couple. Overall, excellent experience!
Celebrating a birthday
Celebrated my son's birthday on a Friday during Lent which meant no meat. We allowed the birthday boy to indulge in a steak but the rest of us stuck to fish. I had the fried fish special and it was overcooked. Nothing special. My daughter had the salmon and said it was flavorful! Best compliment came from my son who got the ribeye and said it was awesome. My advice is stick to ordering a steak when you visit Cast Iron.

Was very yummy but too dark. Tables are very close together but service and food made up for it.
