The pork chop is the best meal in town. Went there one night my wife was out of town. Sat at the bar and asked for a menu. The bartender looked at me and said why do you need a menu? You are going to order the pork chop.

Jack Fry's has been my fav place for many years and continues to serve the best food, with the best ambiance and has the best waitstaff bar none. You will be amazed at the wide variety of the menu, unique pairings, and the sauces are truly to die for. The live music and lively atmosphere coupled with the dim lighting... More

My husband & I both really like the small quant atmosphere here. Great food. We usually come here on special occasions but it shouldn't have to be the only reason to eat here. Not an inexpensive meal for sure but a really delicious one!

Jack Frys is always right on the mark. A Louisville gold standard, it has consistently passed the test of time of having an exciting, innovative menu with just the right amount of favorites and new dishes. Service is always perfect. It is also a great gathering place.

An old-Chicago style eatery (in the Delmonico's tradition), Jack Fries is definitely a 10 out of 10. The pork chops are to die for and you will never find better desserts anywhere. I even loved the bread. The only challenge is parking. It's a small place with little room and even less parking. ...but it is worth any wait. Don't... More

My all time favorite restaurant in Louisville. Going there just to look at all the old pictures on the wall would make the trip worthwhile. And, just to blow your mind the food is equal to the task. Do NOT miss the Shrimp and Grits with Red Eye Gravy, one of their specialties. The bar has always made the drinks... More

The food was excellent and fresh. This place is on the pricy side, I had the burger with blue cheese and fries, it was worth the money.

We had a business lunch here. The service was excellent. The food was wonderful. We all had something different and it was all good. Crabcakes were yummy. I can't wait to go back. We really enjoyed it. First class.
