It's an honor to review Jack Fry's, I love one of Louisville's best kept secrets. There are very few restaurants in Louisville that consistently make my top 5 and Jack Fry's has always been there.

Watermelon salad and lamb chops were UNREAL. Service was just okay. Not bad, but not the service I would expect in a 5-star restaurant. DO NOT leave without trying the watermelon salad!

Hands down, this was the best meal I've had in decades -- and I've had a lot of terrific meals. And I don't often give such effusive reviews. From the watermelon salad to the incredible steak and the live pianist, Jack Fry's was amazing. I'll even compliment the atmosphere, which I usually don't comment on. Eating here was like stepping...

If you're looking for glitz and glamour, or a venue to host your kid's birthday party, this ain't the place. Jack Fry's is a throwback. You could visit 100 cities around the country and find maybe three or four places like this. And if you do, you'll love 'em, because this ain't no cookie-cutter, mall-chain, franchise operation. There's but one... More

Have been dining here for years both lunch and dinner. Food is always prepared as requested. Service is topnotch. It is a little pricey but worth it. I like the feel of the restaurant it makes me feel like I am in New York city. Try their hamburger for lunch it is delicious.

I believe that I had the best meal ever tonight at Jack Fry's. They had a special calamari appetizer that the waiter (Steve) recommended that is among the best appetizers that I have ever had. Being conservative, I ordered the filet. No mistake there. Not only was it mouth watering and tender enough to cut with a fork, it was... More

While attending a convention in Louisville, I ran into a gal that worked for the Office of Tourism. I asked her to recommend a restaurant that wasn't in the downtown area; something different. She told us about Jack Fry's. My husband and I got there 30 minutes before they close between the lunch and dinner menu switch so it wasn't... More

Overrated food and very crowded seating area. Tables are jamb packed in the place. Food is very expensive and mediocre.

I first visited Jack Fry's over 20 years ago. Not only is the food outstanding, but the ambience reminded me of some of the best restaurants in Washington, DC where I worked for more than 16 years. It's the kind of place where you get to know the owners and feel like a regular even if you do not frequent... More

Recently, I had a foodie friend from DC visit. He had a business account, and we had a little business to discuss, so it was on! He said he'd take me to dinner, and asked where should we go. I noted the expected price (this place isn't cheap) and he advised that he was game. I'll have to say it... More
