Gary's is very relaxing, quaint spot off the beaten path (just a little). The servers know the menu, and provide impeccable service. I've been there twice and I plan on going back.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ate upstairs around 5:45We ate upstairs around 5:45 pm. Seats at the bar were nearly all taken, but only a few of the tables were occupied when we arrived. Liked the club-like ambiance we first felt. Unfortunately, mid-way through the meal a large family arrived with a young child, who got into a couple of crying spells. Nothiing the restaurant could do about this...and the parents did ultimately satisfy the child's needs.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time at Gary's.We had a great time at Gary's.

We were a party of 8, and the servers were attentive and friendly.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been to Gary's numerousI've been to Gary's numerous times and I've always enjoyed each visit. On my reservation, I requested a four top table for the extra elbow room to review some papers, since this wasn't a date or anything. However, the hostess presented us with a small, two top table. I asked for something else, and it wasn't available at the time even though several tables appeared to be open. Just as I expected, once the drinks, bread and salads arrived, we had a crowded table and no space to look at some needed papers that we wanted to review. The meal and drinks were good, however, we left a little frustrated since had to review our papers in the car.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGood timesRelaxed ambiance with acoustical guitarist, excellent efficient service, cozy setting and great food topped with outstanding creme brûlée!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the shrimp provencal,I had the shrimp provencal, one of the best meals I have ever eaten.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMeverything was wonderful theeverything was wonderful the service the food the atmosphere it was all great4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMJUst excellent. a little pricey,JUst excellent. a little pricey, but an excellent meal and service.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMHad Dinner there the otherHad Dinner there the other night.

We will definitely be back.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall it was Wonderful!We went to Gary's for my 32nd birthday, we decided to take our 2 year old (who was very well behaved thankfully) but the only downfall was that they did not have children's cups/ lids, so this cause a bit of a problem. But other than that we enjoyed every last detail of the evening! Very nice service, yummy food, and relaxing environment.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love the overall ambianceWe love the overall ambiance and service from Gary's on Spring. The wait staff is very attentative. The lobster bisque is exceptional, the chicken fritters were a bit bland without the tangy sauce. Our two entrees could also use more spices - salmon had a lot going on with many vegetables, however the taste of the fish itself, bland. The chicken fricase has a wonderful blueberry sauce on top, however, again, the chicken seemed to lack some spice.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always have a good mealWe always have a good meal at Gary's. It has become our go-to restaurant for birthdays, anniversaries, and celebrations. Louisville has a lot of good restaurants, and this is one of the better ones.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food!The food was great. My friend had the short ribs - they were really meaty short ribs! The dessert was also tasty.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food in a greatWonderful food in a great atmosphere. We have been served by several staff members, and all have been exceptional! We have recommended Gary's to all our friends.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experience, portionsExcellent experience, portions were abundant, food was delicious, half-price wines on Thursday night add to enjoyment. Two of us dining, we had scallop dish that was amazingly flavorful & scallops were seared perfectly. We also had pork chop with grilled peaches & glaze that was yummy-licious! Only problem was we had one bone & 2 dogs at home. Mgr checked on us & found us an xtra pork chop bone for our 2nd dog which kept us from having a huge problem at home. Planning another trip to Gary's to check their upstairs bar, outdoor deck & entertainment!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was well prepared andFood was well prepared and hot. The waiter was very attentive.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMNice spot, great service.Nice spot, great service. A tad over-priced for the quality of food. The god was not bad, I would consider it good- but for what you are paying, the money could be better spent at other places. Service was very good, and was definitely a highlight of my experience.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Gary's. The food andWe love Gary's. The food and service are always excellent.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMService was great, the foodService was great, the food was good but I felt a bit overpriced. I can find the same or better quality for less at other restaurants. My filet was definitely not worth $30. Closer to 20 - 25 would be more reasonable.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMJust great food at a reasonableJust great food at a reasonable price. Menu is very good with a number of great selections.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Hot Brown ! And yes I'veBest Hot Brown !

Other than the upstairs area being dark and smelling like smoke, we had a wonderful exprerience. However, when we requested to be moved, the waitress happily seated us elsewhere immediately and was very apologetic. The rest of the experience was great.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI have only been here twice,I have only been here twice, but enjoyed it both times. I've experienced both a quiet Monday evening dinner downstairs in the winter and a more lively scene upstairs on the porch during the summer season. Both experiences were pleasant and the food is wonderful. Hope to make it back often.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful MealMy girlfriend and I attended Gary's on Spring for our four-year anniversary. We were greeted by a welcoming host and we were promptly seated. The wait staff was very accommodating, warm and friendly. We ordered the lobster bisque for a first course. The portions were very generous for such a high quality bisque. It was very warm, fresh, and flavorful. The lobster tail was fresh and delicious but the claw meat from the lobster was slightly dry. Overall the bisque was fantastic. I ordered the Bourbon Street scallops for the main course. THE BEST MEAL I'VE EVER HAD! The scallops were smooth, blackened and perfectly spicy. The linguini that accompanied the scallops had a delicious cream sauce and was as equally as spicy as the scallops. GREAT!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMnice comfortable atmosphereThis was our first time to Gary's on Spring. Great find.

Place was packed when we left so recommend a reservation.Highly recommend the Oysters Rockefeller and the brownie dessert which was very unique. The sea bass entree was superb.Service was excellent. Our waiter, Jim, knew the menu, answered our questions about the ingredients of some of the dishes and made excellent recommendations. Venue is elegant but laid back.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingGary's provided us with a lovely evening. The service is absolutely outstanding and our meal (Asian Patagonian Salmon & Lamb) was cooked to perfection. I cant rave enough about this establishment and cant wait to go back.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional food served inExceptional food served in a quaint setting. Service was prompt and friendly.
The Savanah Pork Chop creates a symphony on your taste buds. You will not be disappointed.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent salad with lotsExcellent salad with lots of good ingredients, and I couldn't believe how big my portion was after they split it. The potato encrusted grouper was wonderful too, but split, it was a small piece of grouper. Normally comes with brussel sprouts, but we got asparagus instead and 2 new potatoes each, which were also encrusted. It was in a rich cream sauce. All delicious!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit andThis was our first visit and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was great and the food was fantastic...although a big pricey...but you definitely get your moneys worth in the portion size.
Will come back to try out the outdoor dining upstairs for sure.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time to Gary's and myFirst time to Gary's and my wife and I were very impressed. Decor is comfortable but the the main attracation is the food. Excllent from the appetizers to dessert. Would highly recommend it to anyone.
Really looking forward to getting there when the weather warms up and enjoying their patio.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMtop notchIt was a busy Saturday night, but the staff went out of their way to make sure our needs were met. They asked if we wanted to go upstairs to the bar while waiting on our reservation - we were 30 minutes early. The bar was pretty full, so we went out on the closed-in porch with heaters. It was cozy, quiet and comfortable, so we opted to eat out there. It was relaxing outside, while the inside upstairs bar area was vibrant and energetic. We were eating light and chose a soup and salad rather than an entree. The lobster bisque was outstanding and decadent. The house salad was way over the top from your usual house salad making it a lovely meal. I had a delicious Malbec from Argentina and my husband ordered from the beer list. A great evening3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI've lived in the HighlandsI've lived in the Highlands for 20+ years and had never been to Gary's on Spring. The Groupon made it possible for me to go. The food was EXCELLENT, portion size was great! The only down-side to the evening was the ice cream machine was broken and we couldn't have the baked alaska that we had been looking forward to and we were stuck back in a corner with not a lot of moving room. [My date for the evening was a little large so he felt a little restricted.] I hope there are more Groupons available soon!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there a little earlyWent there a little early before a show downtown. Food, service and timing was spot on, only need to work on the specialty drinks (a little too close to hooch). Will check out the bar area on the next trip.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our 2nd visit toThis was our 2nd visit to Gary's. It was restaurant week and we enjoyed the special menu very much. The 3 course dinner for $50.00 per couple was a great deal. Our service by Camille was excellent and we also really appreciated some special accommodations we requested when we were seated. The service from front desk to bar to table is some of the best we've encountered. Spinach salad, scallops, eggplant napolean, brownies, & tiramisu were all delicious and generous portions. We will definitely be returning for a 3rd, 4th etc.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and ServiceHad such a wonderful meal. I will be visiting again very soon!3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBest kept secret in LouisvilleMy husband and I took advantage of the 502 week restaurant promotion in Louisville this past week. We had dinner at Garys on Friday evening and it was wonderful. Our waiter Titus was awesome and took great care of us. The food was exceptional. I think that we had the pick of servers though, as it seemed that a couple of the tables around us did not have great service with either the wrong food coming out or waiting on drinks. We will certainly be going back.3/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
