“Fantastic restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

I have eaten at Jack Fry's many times and each time I am always impressed. The atmosphere is great, with live music and friendly staff. Everything on the menu is great! I have taken many business associates here and everyone has always been impressed. When asked for a dinner recommendation, I always suggest Jack Fry's.

If you have never eaten here, you should try it.

“Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

This hotel was recommended by many people in Louisville. We loved the food but the atmosphere is what makes this restaurant stand out. Highly recommended.

“Don't judge a book by its cover!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Same to be said of this outstanding restaurant! I never would have gone inside by the looks of the outside! Very nice wood interior and respectful service. A good friend recommended so we went and sure glad we did! Outstanding heirloom tomato salad and steak and salmon entrees prepared and served like a classy and tasteful French chef! We will return very soon.

“The best of Louisville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

For years I only ate at Lilly's on Bardstown Road whenever in Louisville. Two years ago following a disappointingly lackluster dinner I decided to try Jack Fry's and have been dining there exclusively ever since. It is small, always crowded, and reservations on Friday are almost impossible but they do take walk-ins and one can eat at the bar. The food is always fresh, perfectly prepared and delectable. Eating at a bar can be quite dreadful but at Jack's it is most agreeable with excellent service. The shrimp and grits are as good as they are at Lilly Wolf's great Charlestown in Baltimore for half the price. Jack Fry's is always a knock out good dinner.

“The Best in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

My favorite restaurant in town. The food, service, and overall experience is always exceptional. I lived in Louisville for most of my life and would frequent this place almost monthly for many, many years and now it is a must do every time I return to town. if I remember correctly it went through an ownership change in the past year or so. I have been 5 times during my 3 visits home in the past year and did not notice any negative consequence of this. As always an excellent experience. I would recommend the filet or pork chop. The burger is great for lunch or dinner. I would recommend a reservation. If you are wanting a little privacy ask for a booth on the side of the main dining area or in the additional dining area. The main dining area has many tables that can be quite close to other diners and sometimes this can effect the intimacy for a "couples" experience.
