Recommendation from a local, and he was spot on. No wonder this has been a local bar and restaurant since 19135. Made a reservation 3 weeks in advance, good thing packed every night.
Prices are reasonable, food great, I had the pork chop, my wife had the Salmon.....all perfectly cooked.
Ambiance, really makes this a fun place, people were still coming in for dinner at 9:30' a don't miss if you can get in.

Can't say that this was an unremarkable food experience. We went for lunch and there is a limited menu with limited sides. There were no specials. The waitress was efficient but not particularly friendly and didn't add to the experience. I enjoyed the photographs on the wall and it was a nice atmosphere if you wanted a quiet business lunch. The pork sandwich was quite tasty and unique. Nothing else we ordered was unique.

Jack Fry's is a must for any savy traveler. It has been around for a long time, and there are pictures on the wall of all its famous patrons. The food is fantastic - highly recommend the shrimp and grits to start out. Delicious!

We choose Jack Fry's for our first night out in Louisville based on TripAdvisor reviews and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The restaurant is set in an old house in Bardstown (where it has been apparently since 1933). Bardstown is a trendy area of clubs and restaurants. Even though it was a Wednesday night, we had our hotel call for a reservation for 7:00pm and Jack Fry's was able to accommodate us for 7:30pm. It was a good thing we called as the restaurant was bustling all evening.

The restaurant has a great ambiance with conversation happening amongst the patrons and a three piece (upright piano, bass and sax) group performing all evening. While it certainly is not quiet, we were able to carry on our own conversation across our table with ease.

The menu accommodates the various price points with a very excellent hamburger at $11 and a filet mignon entrée at $38. My spouse had the pork chop at $27 and swears it was the best she has had. Wines start at $36 for a bottle and there was lots of choice at that price.

Service was excellent as was our entire evening.
