Jack Frys was a delightful dinning experience. We went with 12 work colleagues and they handled the group well. The ambiance was great with a live piano player, dim lighting and great photos on the wall. I had the warm Brie salad, which hit the spot after all the fried food I had eaten Louisville. Follows by the appetizer portion... More

Was traveling through town and went to the first place that my phone recommended. I had the burger here with steak fries. The burger at a glance seems a little pricey but it is so worth it. It's a nice thick patty. I don't even like pickles on my burger but the pickles they use.. mmm. Best steak fries I've... More

This restaurant has remained on my top 5 list for years. After last night, it moves way down in ranking. Meals from start to finish should be memorable, this one was a disappointment. Poached eggs should be....poached. Salads should not be too frigid. Seafood should not be overcooked or served lukewarm. Dessert should be spectacular! Red wine, bread, and wonderful... More

One of my best experiences ever. The history of the establishment is quite interesting. I heard nothing but raves from anyone that I mentioned to that I was going to be coming here soon. The food choices were all amazing and my selection did not disappoint. It is small and a little loud but you could still hear the conversation... More

Loved the vibe of this restaurant! The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. Definitely a must when in Louisville, especially around Derby time.

I've dined at Jack Fry's several times during the past several years and must say I think it's overrated. The food is reasonably good but nothing extraordinary. It's usually very busy so the service is sometimes not overly attentive. The dining area is quite cramped so it tends to be rather noisy. If you are seated next to an individual... More

Jack Fry's is one of the Louisville must visit fine dining establishments. Its a great place for a well poured drink and some good food. The pork chop entree is great, and the grits and oyster appetizer is my hands down favorite. Buttery grits and tender fried oysters- YUM. Most nights they have entertainment. Make a reservation- you don't want... More

Jack Fry's was amazing. I ordered the lamb chops medium rare, they were cooked perfectly. The service was just right and the atmosphere with live jazz (even on our Thursday night visit) made the elegant yet cozy atmosphere an experience. Enjoyed wine and dessert as well. I will dine here whenever I am in Louisville
