Cast Iron Steakhouse - River Road Ratings and Reviews

As usual the food was outstanding: tasty, done to perfection, and brought to the table in a timely way. This is consistent with my past experiences over the last 2-3 years that I've been coming here. But our server, Reeny, deserves very special mention and commendation. She was very welcoming and gracious and at the same time prompt and highly professional. While it was obvious that the restaurant was busy she never let the number of tables and diners she was serving get in the way of providing us with deft service in a pleasant way and often showing a great sense of humor. I generally don't order chopped steak but Cast Iron prepares it in a winning way and I'd highly recommend it, as I would the outstanding potato cake which I've had several times.

Overall a very good experience. I wasn't happy with the table we were seated at, it was in a busy area and pushed too close to another group. I did make a reservation..maybe next time I will request a specif table .

Service was very good, but food was blah. My fish (mahi mahi) was over cooked and the Mac and Cheese was very ordinary. Dessert (caramel chocolate brownie with ice cream) was tasty and the only dish that impressed me at all. Would not recommend or return.

First time here and was pleasantly surprised. Good ambiance. friendly staff, down home, comfortable feel. Liked booth vs table. Steaks were fine. Entrance stairs a challenge, use the handicapped ramp to the parking lot.

We have been here 3 times in 2 months. Food is excellent. Service was superb the first time. The second time the waitress was stressed and we could tell. This last time, the waitress was not observant enough and would disappear. I can understand if the place was busy, but we didn't come in till 8:15. It was almost empty.

Fried pickles were awesome! Husband had steak - delicious. I had the pork tenderloin - to die for! Homemade dressing were wonderful! Kids had tenders and cheeseburger - all good.

The food is way too pricey for the quality. One of our guests ordered steak cooked medium well and it came out medium rare. It was sent back and came out (after a very long time) still rare. They did not charge her and she left hungry. The space is very cramped with little room to walk through the dining area or move between tables. Our experience wasn't good enough for a return visit and I cannot recommend this place.

It was our anniversary. You're always afraid on those special occasions that something isn't going to go as planned. All I can say is it was the perfect evening. The service and professionalism was impeccable. And the food? We both ordered the fillets. I don't know what they're paying the chef, but it's not enough. I've eaten at the #1 and #5 steakhouses in the country and this steak was as good or better, hands down. Perfectly cooked medium rare, Pittsburgh style! At Cast Iron Steakhouse you get what you pay for and then some. We've been here several times and always came away with the same great experience. 😀

Another delicious meal at Cast Iron Steakhouse! My husband and I took his dad for an early Father's Day dinner because he was craving a hot brown. It was his first time there. He said the hot brown was delicious and he loved the ambiance. We will definitely be back.

Cast Iron Steakhouse has established a solid reputation for very good food. The menu has an abundance of great choices. I LOVE the steak queso and never miss the opportunity to indulge with the peach cobbler. Their steaks are excellent as are the other selections. The service is friendly, efficient and consistent. Best of all, the value for the dollar is terrific! I highly recommend this place!

We have been to the Cast Iron Steakhouse several times and I have never been disappointed. It is the only restaurant that I will order a steak. It always comes done perfectly and is tender, juicy and delicious. The baked potato is awesome and their salads are always fresh and tasty. Unfortunately, a strong thunderstorm knocked out the power right after our meal was served. Since it was our 45th Anniversary, we were given a card by the owner for a free dessert to share the next time we come in. A transformer was blown so they had to close for the evening but we were able to enjoy our dinner and look forward to dessert next time.

The stuffed, bacon-wrapped pork loin was incredible.
Great food and great service...felt welcome from the time we entered until the time we left. We will definitely return!
Our play night girls go to dinner before we go to the play and so this time we chose Cast Iron. We told our server that we had to be downtown by 7:00 and she gave us such great service we were out of there by 6:30 but did not feel rushed. Food was great! It is one of my favorite places to dine right in our neighborhood.
Service was lacking
I had mentioned on reservation that it was our 28 th anniversary. We got there early and we were seated right away. The problem was we were seated on the bar side where they were waiting for a 20 person party to arrive. They moved the tables beside us together and were waiting for us to finish so our table could be added. We had two different servers. It was very chaotic and we felt we were in the way. Very disappointing experience for our anniversary dinner. The food was delicious though.

We were a party of 10 and our server was excellent and very attentive. The food was a great value for the price and absolutely delicious. Best Delmonico steak I've had in a long time! The outside porch seating is very quant and romantic if you are looking for a good date night spot. Definitely worth trying out if you are in the area.

Went when friends and family in town. Three got steak and all loved it. I got Mahi Mahi which was excellent. Last person got pasta which he also liked.

We were celebrating a very special anniversary! The whole experience was wonderful! The food was amazing!
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.

Food was excellent. Service was even better. My wife had ordered chicken and the chicken came out undercooked, the waitress asked no questions and immediately grabbed the plate and returned it to the kitchen. A whole new plate with new sides and new properly cooked chicken was brought out, and the restaurant took care of us. The waitress turned a potentially disastrous experience in to one that will definitely cause us to return!

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.

The steaks were perfectly cooked, the sides and salad flavorful. Wait staff were on the spot with refills etc. all in all a great experience.
We both ordered the small filet. I ordered medium rare + and it came medium +. My friend ordered medium rare and it came medium. Pretty common problem for the "steak" house.

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.
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.
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.
