“Great steak, a great salad bar and great service” is the focus of family-friendly Cattleman’s Roadhouse.

The all-you-can-eat Ultimate Salad Bar is a customer favorite, but the ribeyes and sirloin steaks are also popular. All beef is Midwestern Black Angus and aged 28 days. Cattleman’s Roadhouse is also a Kentucky Proud restaurant.

Locally owned and operated by Bill Hisle and Stuart Meredith, the first Cattleman’s opened in 2006 in Shelbyville, served by Shelby Energy Cooperative. With eight Kentucky locations and one coming soon in New Albany, Indiana, Cattleman’s employs 470 people.

Hisle says, “If there is a guy who loves the kitchen it would be Stuart Meredith. We started together back in our Bistro 535 days, a small restaurant in Shelbyville back in 1993. Stuart’s father was a chef and the enjoyment of developing, preparing and serving customers great food has always been a part of Stuart’s DNA.”

Following the closing of Bistro 535, Meredith and Hisle saw the need for a steakhouse in Shelbyville. 

“Years ago, a marketing consultant suggested we choose a name that sent a message that was bigger than what many mom and pop’s use,” says Hisle. “A name that spoke of steaks, was a friendly place and one that people would pull off the road to stop in and eat.”

Hisle says Cattleman’s Roadhouse primarily focuses their attention on the local communities they serve. “This is usually within a 5- to 10-mile radius, but as a member of the Rewards Network and as many of our locations are located just off an expressway, we do receive a good amount of out-of-town traffic,” says Hisle.

“We strive to deliver a great experience to every customer that comes in so they will come back and bring their friends and family,” Hisle says.

The menu also includes appetizers, desserts and a wide variety of fish, chicken, burgers and rib entrees.

“Our menus offer a wide selection of options so that almost anyone in the family can find something they like. Our menus have a lot of pictures and you will notice that when the food comes out, it looks like the picture. No surprises, just great food,” says Hisle.

Hisle says the lunch menu is priced to allow everyone to experience a delicious, hot meal at fast-food, drive-thru prices. The Ultimate Salad Bar runs every day, all day, lunch and dinner.

Cattleman’s Restaurant is a family focused restaurant. “Our first focus will always be on the family.”

They do have a good sized bar with televisions and offer local and import beers, a variety of mixed drinks as well as a selection of quality wines.

Cattleman’s Roadhouse offers carryout Sunday–Thursday 11 a.m.–8:30 p.m. and Friday–Saturday 11 a.m.–9 p.m. while under COVID-19 restrictions.
