Neighborhood Steak Resturant

If you are in Shelbyville, this is the place to go. You MUST eat at their salad bar. It is the best in Louisville, KY area. They have good steaks and chicken. Their menu is varied and a lot of side dishes.

If a classy ambiance is your goal, skip this restaurant. On the other hand, if you'd like great beef, a good drink, and friendly service, Cattleman's Roadhouse is for you. This Shelby County favorite is easily accessible from 64 E and an obvious choice for travellers. But don't be fooled, iit's not a bland chain restaurant. Rather, Cattleman's in Shelbyville... More

I find the food average but the salad is very good though. I think they need to change menu more often .

In the interest of full disclosure - the Cattleman's chain was founded and is still run by a couple of super nice guys - Stuart and Bill - who used to live on my street - honestly that is probably why I went to eat there... the first time.. we have been going back again and again over the years...

I use to have a traveling job and had the luxury of eating throughout the country. Ribs were always my choice when I could. I rate the ribs among and quite possibly higher than the Montgomery ribs of Cincinnati. You will not be disappointed! They are a must try if you are any fan of an amazing plate of ribs.... More

Returned again as food is good quality, young servers who do a good job. Big salad bar, they keep it fully stocked. I had the Henry Bein burger, it was great, home baked buns dinner rolls, very good. Have always had good filets at this location, give it a try if wanting a western themed steakhouse.

This restaurant offers an outstanding salad bar which can be purchased alone or with a full meal. I find the salad bar to be sufficient for stopping at this location which is just off I-64 in Shelby County. The steaks are overpriced for me and are nothing exceptional for my taste.

Bill H, Owner at Cattleman's Roadhouse, responded to this review

I am glad you like our Signature Salad Bar, but puzzled that you think our aged Certified Angus Steaks are overpriced. Our goal is not to be the cheapest, but to offer good value on great steaks.They sell in white tablecloth restaurants at twice our price. I am shocked any time I buy beef at grocery. The low grade steaks... More
