My group had the bratwurst, burger and chicken sandwich. All of them were cooked well and tasted great. Will definitely eat there again.
I have not eaten here, however, I door dash from here. Food is always delicious. I always get the pulled pork sliders and recently tried their lockford sliders. Very delicious. And if you're a fan of tater tots I highly recommend them. Dear management, if you read this, please add the fish and chips back on the door dash menu...
The food is good, I like the concept, from what I noticed they make a lot of their own ingredients like pickles and pickled onion. Their was a brat sandwich added as a new thing when I went and I think they made that themselves which is always nice to have house made meats. As many of my reviews before I am a sucker for tots. The fries have a nice BBQ smoked paprika seasoning on them that I enjoyed.
I have been working downtown for over 5 years and I never thought to go into this place. I decided to try it for the first time. I ordered the Philly cheesesteak. It was the best cheesesteak that I ever had. You guys now have a regular customer. :-)
Food and atmosphere is always fantastic. The burgers are so good! They are expertly seasoned. We usually get a pizza as well, which is one of my favorites in town.
I stopped by Saturday night (last night) Had a Thai chicken Pizza and it was delicious. Going back for more.
Cute little restaurant with outdoor and indoor dining. Small menu which allows for them to focus more on the quality of the food listed. I had the chicken tacos and they were amazing with a splash of lime juice and the homemade salsa. If you're in this area definitely give them a try.
The food was so delicious and I've heard great reviews of this place but ooohhhh boy! The veggie burger and garlic fries were amazing, the cast iron burger was astounding, and I am definitely coming back! There was a live act that apparently plays Thursday's. Seating is both indoors and outdoors at this time. 10's across the boards! The original fries are a must try! I could rave on forever, so just try it.
We love this place. Wife and I love to visit this establishment. Food is always better than good, we've had the tacos the burgers pizza most specials are always fantastic
Had the Cast Iron Burger and Bistro Burger. They have this awesome "Godzilla Sauce" that went well with garlic fries. Great selection of drinks. Live music, outdoor dining and cozy environment inside. Definitely coming back.
We just discovered this place and it's a great place to get a beer and have some delicious food!! Especially on Thursday they have live music. Staff is always kind. They have beer on tap specially pliny the elder, and they also offer cans beers to and if you don't drink beer no worries they have non alcoholic beverages to!!.
good food. Especially if you like potatoes as the fries and tots were quite plentiful. Great asparagus. Satisfying burger.
I am a Travelling nurse working in Stockton. My hometown is Portland Ore. where breweries and live music are found in abundance. I was looking for the same type of atmosphere and was so happy to find Cast Iron Trading!! Live music Thursday’s and Saturday’s, great healthy and delicious food options, and a large selection of beers and other beverages! A great place for dinner or a date night. Cute patio and awesome mural on the side of the building! Overall a true Gem!
Despite their fryer being down, the food offerings were good. Hubby had the Brussel sprout taco and the carnitas tacos. He loved them! I had the sausage sliders and they were delicious too! There was live music and the performer was awesome. This was my first visit and I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to going back.
My wife, and I, happened up on this place on our way to a poem reading next door. We went in, because we were a little early, so we decided to just sit, and have some fries. The fries were good, there was live entertainment, and a football game on the TV. I can't give a review on the food, since we only ordered fries, but the service was good, the atmosphere was, absolutely, inviting, the facility was clean, and the ambience was perfect. I'm glad that we decided to go in. We will definitely be returning. Even, though, we didn't order a full meal, by the looks of all the smiles on everyone's faces, and all of the empty plates, I would assume the food is really good... Lol. I would recommend this establishment, because I got nothing but good vibes.
Cast Iron is so good! Great food in a casual and hip atmosphere. Fresh food and unique and delicious specials. The beer selection is on point and Natalie and Bree can help you find what you’re looking for. Try the green goddess dressing, especially for dipping fries into.
Came in for a vegan crunchwrap night and it did not disappoint. I'm not vegan but my sister is and my hubby is vegetarian so I'm what they call a "vegan enthusiast" 😉 I had their classic margarita and brussel sprout tacos and it was 👌 Staff was friendly and the environment was warm and welcoming. I will definitely be back for another vegan night!
Super friendly service and Great atmosphere. Flatbread pizza was a great starter and the juicy hamburger was a hit! Glad we finally decided to get over there and try it out. A clean downtown vibe in Stockton.
This place is amazing. Super nice local staff, great hand-made cold brew pints, insanely good food. I was in Stockton for 30 hours and came here twice. Scary good.
holy moly it was fantastic. I had the veggie burger and fries, with the fries cooked extra crispy. The fries could not have been better. they were crispy, fresh, and had a light dusting of some seasoning. I wouldn't say they were spicy but they definitely had a fantastic bite and flavor. The veggie burger was about the best veggie burger I've ever eaten. It wasn't large, but it was cooked perfectly. they use the beyond beef patty, which is indistinguishable from meet. The bun was as soft as a fresh-baked bun. It was slightly charred, giving the combination an unbelievable flavor. this is not a place that you would stumble onto. It is in downtown Stockton, which is a very quiet City on a weekday evening at 7:30 pm. this street does not look terribly inviting, although it is just one block up from the multiplex cinema. But you must go out of your way to come here.
This is a great place to sit have a beer. Enjoy some tater tots. We had the Tomato Leek soup...downtown for the Evening.
This place serves food until late at night in downtown Stockton. The food was delicious and I loved the attention too. I highly recommend it.
Delicious food and good beer selection. If you ever want a delicious meal or wanna try something new this place is definitely a place to check out!
Well this was a cheeky find. What a great atmosphere. A broad menu that covers the palatable needs of the family carnivore, ominvore and vegan. I had the Beyond Meat burger incredible, absolutely delicious. Music was being played by 2 friendly guys on drums and guitar and whilst it was busy and bustley, it was not loud or intimidating. The staff were friendly, smiley and attentive. Can't recommend this place enough. I would have liked to have stayed longer but couldn't.
I sent my friends to this place with my highest recommendations. I visit this restaurant often. This recommendation is always successful. The meals are great and the stuff is attentive and cooperative. Whenever we go to this place we pass a cheerful time. I recommend this place with pleasure.
I get to eat here a lot since I work in the area. I like how the service is always good and they keep the place well organized at all times. Pricing is affordable and they serve large portions.
This is such a great place! The food is phenomenal, with vegan and vegetarian friendly options. The drink selection is also really diverse.
I had a great experience here. Great customer service. Food was way more than I expected. I ordered the veggie burger and my guy ordered the cast iron burger. We were both satisfied. They also had some great beer options. We will definitely be back.
So glad they reopened this week! I always thought it was funny to call it Cast Iron Trading Co. Sounds more like a general store than a restaurant, but don't be fooled be the name! They've got good pizza and sandwiches, and keep the menu fresh by changing out some different daily specials. Great vibe here, and I enjoy the outdoor seating too.
My first Five Star Review! Came here in the time of Covid19, outdoor seating was well-spaced and had plenty of shade and misters to keep cool in the late afternoon. We wore masks indoors to place our order. The staff was so friendly and helpful! And their beverage selection is INCREDIBLE. I ordered Brussels Sprouts tacos and SO ordered a burger. Let me tell you, these tacos were AMAZING. The texture and flavor were perfect! I wish I would have had room to eat more!! Will definitely be back here to try more.
This restaurant belongs on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives. You put this restaurant in a downtown of a better city good luck getting a table. I hope Stockton can support this place the way it deserves.
Food was very good. Fair price. Friendly staff. Took 1 star off bc our order was wrong and got charged more for something we weren't given. Other than that, will likely return. Mistakes do happen...Pizza was awesome!...crust was crunchy when you bite, soft inside.
Amazing food and I highly recommend coming here. The outdoor seating is wonderful and the service is good. It gets fairly busy at times so you may have to wait for a seat to open up or you can get it to go. They have specials that change fairly often that are pretty good.
I had the tacos which were very good. My kids loved their food as well. Daughter had the caprese pizza and my son had the Cast Iron Burger. Both were great. The garlic fries and parsnips fries were delicious. They had an array of beers on tap. My picky as hell vegetarian wife was the only one who didn't care for dinner.
Love this little joint! Very friendly vibe. I went when they had live music. Alex Reyes and his band were so wonderful and talented. I hope they keep bringing him back! Food was great! They have a variety of beer. Just wish they served mixed drinks lol. But I will still come back. Thanks for supporting live music!
The veggie burger was about the best veggie burger I've ever eaten. It wasn't large, but it was cooked perfectly. they use the beyond beef patty, which is indistinguishable from meet. The bun was as soft as a fresh-baked bun. It was slightly charred, giving the combination an unbelievable flavor.

We just thought we'd stop off for a quick dinner and we came across this gem. The burger, the kinda classic grilled cheese, and a side of fries were just the right combo of classic grub meets a spicy twist. The seasonings were sublime and the cranberry pie sour ale was tarte and delicious.
Great atmosphere and very friendly staff. Their regular menu has great options, however dont forget to check out their special board. There was a Tokyo chicken sandwich that was very tasty.
Visited this location simply because they offered vegan options. As my daughter is vegan. Once we arrived we were greeted by the staff which were all nice. We placed our order and then we sat down to wait for order. Once we received our food the owner came out and sparked up a conversation with us also informed that he wanted to extend location for more outside dining experiences. Looking forward to visiting location again food was good need to partake in the bar area next visit
It's hard to find a place like this in Stockton, being that we are kinda old Fashioned when it comes to both bars and restaurants. Being that I go to school in Silicon Valley, I have kinda experienced this type of Dining before and I'm happy someone finally brought it to Stockton! it has that Millenial dining vibe and it is really nice. Give it a try!
Love this place! It’s our go to for craft beer and their weekly new menu. Their food is amazing, there isn’t anything on their menu that isn’t good, it’s no ordinary food, each plate has a twist and is full of unique flavor that you can’t get anywhere else like it. From burgers, to pizza, to tacos, to sandwiches, there is something for everyone and their staff is always providing the best and kind service.
Fast, friendly, absolutely delicious! I had the Rose Lemonade and Cast Iron Tacos. My fiancé had a Shirley Temple and Fish n Chips. We both LOVED it.
My FAVORITE place to eat in stockton. Food is great and serving is excellent. Great fun for family or date night.
This place is pretty cool they have some alcoholic beverages IPA's wines, but the biggest attraction for me was their vegan food they have a lot more than any place in Stockton has going on. The vibes are so cool yet hipster and his chill vibes. They also had a live musician out can't beat it
Amazing food and environment. Food is delicious and hot. Definitely at the top of the list of our favorite places to eat at in Stockton! Second time coming around and will definitely be back!
First time here. Live music, indoor and outdoor dining. Ordered the steak frites and oh my gosh! SO good! I ate the whole plate! Only $15.
Ordered their fish and chips, advertised as the "best in town." Did not disappoint! Unique, flavorful, perfect amount of food. Live music was great!
The staff was extremely friendly and prompt. Very knowledgeable on their beer selection and eager to help recommend a beer to try. I had a double onion Podesto burger. The burger itself had somewhat of a sausage taste to it which kind of threw me off, but the fries had a nice sweet seasoning to them that countered the strange flavor of the burger patty. Had a couple of beers with the meal and hung out at the counter with the friendly staff. The chef came out to greet us and he was very kind and friendly. He seemed genuinely excited that we stopped in to eat. We also tried the Hawaiian pizza and that was REALLY good. Pineapple DOES belong on pizza 🍕😋
This is a happening little place. Good food. Fast service. The Cast Iron burger - add cheddar was really good. Best burger I've had out in a while. Nathan Ignacio was the entertainment. We all enjoyed his music. If you like sweets, the churro doughnut ice cream sundae is a must!
The food was so delicious I honestly didn't even stop to take photos! I've heard great reviews of this place but ooohhhh boy! The veggie burger and garlic fries were amazing, the cast iron burger was astounding and I am definitely coming back! There was a live act which apparently plays Thursdats and Saturdays and seating was outdoors in Cali's gorgeous night weather! Like 10's across the boards! The original fries are a most try! I could rave on forever. So just try it.
Not from town and a friend directed here. AMAZING. From the staff helping with not only food but craft beer choices. The live entertainment and great vibe of people coming in. Definitely looking forward to going back
I cannot say enough good things about this place. The food is amazing, I had the nugget burger, which is not always on the menu and the lockeford sausage sliders. Both dishes were perfection. The cozy spot was packed full on a Saturday night when I picked up my food, but the staff was still kind and attentive, and got me in and out in an expeditious manner. I will always come back here for takeout and when I'm in Stockton for pleasure, if ever, I will be coming in to sit down and enjoy whatever special the chef has that week, because I'm sure it will be amazing. 10 out of 10 definitely recommend
The staff and the food here are amazing! Our company hosted a private Christmas party here on a Saturday and they opened up 2 hours early to cater to us. The inside is kind of small. A hole in the wall kind of feeling. This would be a real good place to grab a bite and a drink for two. We will definitely be visiting again soon to try other things on their menu.
A really great environment. Great cleanliness and always great music. Had the fish and chips with a topo chico. The Fish was a bit small. But very well worth it. Well battered, crispy and flaky. The best tartar sauce I've had. I don't know if it's made in house but it's really good. The only thing that prevented a 5 star review was the fries. There's an overbearing amount with the dish and they're just your general frozen crinkle cut fries. But at least you get em fresh out of the fryer. Overall an outstanding place to go in a town where there isn't a whole lot of places to go.
