We are visiting Riverside and wanted to have a nice sophisicated dinner with good food and wine. Cast 'N Cleaver does not disappoint! The steaks and baked potatoes were excellent! Ordered medium rare and got medium rare! Our server, Cat, was excellent. Just the right amount of service and attentiveness. We asked about wineries in the region and she offered... More

We have been eating at Cask n Cleaver for about 35 years and have always gotten our steaks cooked to perfection. One of us likes our medium and the other medium rare and they always arrive at the same time and are just what we ordered. Friendly staff also.

We have eaten at this restaurant for years and have never been disappointed in how our steaks have been cooked. I like mine medium and my husband likes his medium rare. The steaks are served at the same time and they are perfect. I particularly like the Bleu Steak but without the bleu but with the mushrooms and onions. Very... More

I have never been to a Cask n' Cleaver before. Looks like they around Southern California and never made to Southern Nevada. So this steak place is more than comparable to an Outback and the ribeye I had was pretty good. Tender and flavorful. Didn't have dessert. Too full. This is a definite local hangout judging by the people coming... More

We wanted to eat here before but we thought the prices were too expensive then -- but we were in the mood for a REALLY good dinner. And sure enough, my husband chose prime rib -- which was great. I was fighting a cold so I had their standard soup which was Chicken Tortilla and it was the best thing... More

I had a salmon lunch, unfortunately swimming in butter, and my wife had a half BLT with avocado and a cup of soup. The food was good, decor average, and the serve was good for our party of six. I had a serviceable glass of pinot noir. Nothing really distinguishes this Cask & Cleaver, but nothing detracts from it, either.... More

Got a half price martini and their steak bites. Steak bites are filet pieces. Lots for under $6. They had free food too...hot dogs, chips and toppings. It was quiet when I was in.

We were in the area to take our son out for a birthday lunch. We use to love this chain but they no longer are in Orange County. We were surprised to find this place close to UCR and decided to see if it was still familiar. We weren't disappointed. Service was outstanding and we all loved our meals. I... More
