I highly recommend Gary's to anyone!!!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing selectionsI had the sea bass as our waiter recommended it. I would have it again and recommend it over anything on the menu although other options were just as good.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my FavoritesIt doesn't get much better than the upstairs patio at Gary's, I always come in and have a Bourbon at the bar then meander out to the patio for dinner. The wine list has something for everyone, the bar is well stocked with bourbons and the menu is spectacular. I had the Grouper, the portion was small but appropriate. I try something new every time I go and they have not failed me yet.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great but the serviceFood was great but the service was horrible. Waiting forever, consistent invasion of personal space, no etiquette, etc. I would come back again for the food, though, and choose another server.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day brunch!Open only one Sunday per year for

The food was out of this world - especially the Eggplant! The Mussels were outstanding as was the Grouper. The service was exceptional. Such a lovely place. Can't wait to go back when it's not raining and sit on either the upper or lower level patio!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGary's was great.The restaurant was clean, staff was friendly and attentive and the food and wine was great.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat people, great food.Overall very good!

The highlights of the meal were the spinach salad and potato encrusted grouper.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingWe had a terrific meal and great service from our server Justin. The menu was creative and everything was delicious.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFun night even with the rain!Went right after Oaks Race and were very early for our reservation, but they took us right away & we had a lovely table outside. Got a few nice appetizers and then the rain that blew in sideways, came all of a sudden. We tried moving in closer to the door, but were still getting wet so we went in to a very crowded restaurant that didn't have any seats for a party of 6. They were hustling around trying to get us something while we stood by the door for about 10-15min. The rain quit luckily and we went back out & they set up a new table. Our food was very good, even though we were delayed much later than we hoped to be(through no fault of the restaurant). Great place to go!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTop notchEverything was perfect on a night before the Kentucky Oaks. There were 8 of us and they served us attentively . The Great Chef stopped by to say hello. What a dinner. Bison ribeye was superb, as we're the mussels and potato encrusted grouper. Highly recommend. We will return.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMfun menu and specialsThere were several places in Louisville I wanted to try while in town for derby and settled on Gary's because it wasn't Downtown. Everything I tried was better than average with the oysters Rockefeller just short of great, and I was really pleased with my pork chop as the main dish. My dining companions enjoyed their food as well.
Only complaint is that the server went between aloof and overly aggressive. It didn't ruin the experience, but it was awkward.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLocal spot with outstanding foodI love supporting locally owned restaurants especially when the food taste great. And the atmosphere matches the food quality. 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.

A little noisy and smaller table, but we enjoyed our dinner and cocktails. The owner graciously offered my wife a birthday dessert for her birthday celebration.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!

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 food and service are always excellent.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWas there Friday night forWas there Friday night for first time. Staff very frendly. Two margaritas from the bar were very good. Hot Brown Appetizer was wonderful. The Ceasar Salad was disappointment - small plate of not so fresh salad that was very dry. Not worth the $8 price. Husband ordered Scallops and was very pleased. I ordered the shrimp..very tasty except my pasta was swimming in the sauce. Little too much. Overall good dinner and nice place to go. Maybe its just me....but I wish that restaurants would ban using fake whipped butter that comes with bread. Sometimes its the little things with me :)
Gary's bread could ue an upgrade too.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
