They probably have my favorite food in town. They also have a warm, cozy atmosphere that is still formal. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Ate here last Tuesday after missing out on them for awhile. I had the fish and chips...happy to report that they were as tasty as any I've had. My dinner companion had their BBQ chicken and she states that it is "the best". For desert I had the butterscotch pudding with bacon OMG! and my friend had the mango blueberry... More

Went here for business dinner. Service wonderful and the ambiance is lovely, with all of the many pictures and history on the walls. Live jazz music offered a nice touch as well. Pate appetizer appears homemade- very pungent and lacking depth of flavor. The ceviche was flat, unilayered in taste. I had the salmon dinner- salmon okay; the rice tasted... More

Jack Fry's is famous in Louisville for its fine dining, fabulous food and excellent service. The restaurant serves Southern cuisine with French influence. This is a very unique experience. The restaurant is relatively small and can still serve quite a few patrons, although quite crowded in. We were only able to secure lunch reservations on a Thursday as it was... More

One of the best meals I have had in a while. Outstanding food and outstanding service. Great lamb chops and the unique grits top it all off. Dessert was delicious as well. I'll be back.

I took clients here for lunch. Every meal was excellent. The service was very good. Super friendly waitstaff. It is a quiet setting for a lunch meeting. I can't wait till the next time.

we have been here twice and thoroughly enjoyed the experience both time. go on a weeknight to avoid crowds and to enjoy the musical combo that plays while you eat. Great food, great dessert, great wait staff, friendly staff all around, parking can be an issue.

We are not at all disappointed we had dinner here on our only night in Louisville, en route home from a road trip. The service was great. The food was amazing. The acoustics are terrible, but they can be forgiven because everything else is so wonderful. We were met here by four friends from Lexington, KY who drove in to... More

Delicious for lunch and dinner. Spaghetti squash entree was wonderful - definitely not an afterthought, the way vegetarian options often seem to be at nice restaurants. Very good and reasonably priced wine-by-the-glass selection. Very fun, refined atmosphere.

Another great dinner at Jack Fry's. I'm lucky to get here 4-5 times per year and it's always awesome. The service is always five star, the summer menu was perfect for everyone. I want to move into the basement.

Thank Matt C
