Spicy oysters were simply amazing. The best pork chop I've ever had. I highly recommend this place. The ambiance is as delightful as the food. A must visit if you are in Louisville.

I asked for some recommendations on our neighborhood Facebook Page....and Jack Fry's just kept popping up. So we made a reservation and tried it. Oh my...it was great. A great old house type location...great food and great service. It is very historic too as was described by our hotel, cab driver and others. You need a reservation as it was... More

I've been to Louisville many times but had not had the pleasure of dining here until this past month. What a treat! The food was fabulous and everyone from the host to the wait staff were attentive and helpful. We were able to get a last-minute reservation so were not able to get a booth and the table wasn't all... More

Love this spot!! Great food, fantastic service and great music. Yes it can be loud as it is a small building but that creates the charm. This is a true gem of old world style in an age of rush.... Love it all!!

Oh my goodness. If you want a nice setting and extra yummy food, this is the place to go, no doubt. It has food you do not normally get other places, such as duck and lamb. Their lamb is to die for. I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes food out of the norm.

I love this place! It reminds you of an old fashioned speakeasy-esque place where the lights are dim, there is a live pianist at night, and the tablecloths are white and neatly pressed. The food is to die for. The scallop appetizer were some of the best scallops I have had-perfectly seared and with a great texture and sauce. They... More

I have been eating at Jack Fry's for twenty years and recently ate there again. It is under new ownership and has a new chef, and it is not the same place I knew. The servings were meager and the taste...just ok. I began with shrimp and grits. Three shrimp, no specific flavor. Then the stilton salad. The bitter greens,... More

Then we were told we could check the bar....and once we walked in, we knew we were staying! The restaurant... More

Ever wanted that old school, eclectic photos on the wall and well worn booths and tables but wanted trendy dishes and a great wine list? Go to Jack Fry's. Get the heirloom tomato salad and scallops or splurge and get the pasta and for goodness sake get dessert. Great customer service and atmosphere. LOVED it.
