The food and service was extraordinary. I had the shrimp and grits and they were as good as it gets. The pork chop is a house speciality and now I know why. Outstanding. Do not judge the book by the cover. The outside says do not enter. The food inside is divine.

Best filet mignon around, sets the benchmark around the country for me. Mostly disappointed when I go elsewhere. Low priced compare to those over priced steak houses and SOOOO much better. "One of the best restaurants I've ever been to". - I 2nd that!

Jack Fry's deserves it's top rating through years of providing excellent food and service... Very warm and inviting atmosphere and the prices are fair... Also, come here for lunch, it's more affordable than dinner...

We had our flight out of the SDF airport last night and had to stay overnight. Always wanting to try something new and unique, we took a cab to Jack Fry's for dinner and arrived without reservations. There was an hour wait for a table (Monday night!) so, upon hearing the regular menu is served in the bar, we grabbed... More

We decided to go to Jack Fry's because my oldest grandson was going to work in the kitchen there the next day and we wanted him to experience the front of the house before he started to work in the kitchen. It was a family affair so we turned it in to a real celebration. It was an epic meal.... More

Every year during our VHPA reunion my wife and I try to find a memorable restaurant to share with our close friends. We were not disappointed with Jack Fry's. We saw that it was rated second on Trip Advisor and it wasn't going to break the bank going there. We made reservations for 5:45 PM and were glad we did.... More

We had dinner here for a business meal and had a fabulous experience. We arrived early for our 6 pm reservation and enjoyed a few premium cocktails. They have an excellent bourbon and wine list that covers a wide variety of flavor and price points. Their dinner menu is set along the same theme and you can almost anything to... More

The drinks, service and food are the best we have in Louisville. There can be only one in this great city and this is it. Get reservations for the weekend, usually quite busy, but get there. Sit back, enjoy the food and relax. The staff will pamper you to the extreme and usually some live music quietly working its magic... More

The place is amazing. We were having a bad luck monday since every place we went for dinner was closed but found this place through a cab driver... We loved the food so much and the service is excellent. A must in Louisville!
