Excellent Food and Service!
This is our special occasion place. Wish we could afford to come more often.
This experience was a memorable dining event due to the great food, terrific service and spot on refreshments. Do not hesitate to enjoy Jack Fry’s for your special evening or to reconnect with friends. The trout, filet and exceptional pork chop were enjoyed and relished by our party. No wonder this local legendary establishment was very busy on a Weds. night!
What a treat! Everything was perfect from the welcome greeting "Happy Anniversary" at check in. Our table request when making the reservation was honored. Service was prompt and timely throughout the evening. Server had a sparkling personality and it was wonderful to have her. Food was terrific and nothing disappointed. Simply, the most perfect way to spend our anniversary dinner. THANK YOU!
Outstanding as always. The food was delicious. The server was perfect. One of my favorite places to eat
The food was, as always, incredible. Celebrated a wedding anniversary. My favorite restaurant in Louisville.
We love this restaurant. I try to go whenever I’m in town.
It was great! Thanks!
Loved it - we’ll be back!
Food was not as good as in my past experience. Trout special was overdone. Fried green tomatoes as a shared appetizer was excellent. It was a late lunch and one table was terribly loud.
Everything thing we ordered was cooked to order, presented beautifully, and tasted delicious.
This place is awesome. Food very good. Service great. Wine list exceptional. Ability to make a good manhattan is great. Nice place. Highly recommend
The food was absolutely amazing. The service and atmosphere was great. Highly recommended.
The shrimp and grits are delicious!
The best restaurant in Louisville by far. Food is always good.
ALWAYS a treat for us! It's my favorite place to take a friend or colleague.
All the staff is so kind and welcoming and the food is amazing ! Perfect place for a celebration of any kind or a night out with friends and family.
We have been to this restaurant several times over the years. Each time we come to Louisville we just have to eat at Jack Frye’s. Top notch every single time!
My favorite restaurant in Louisville, excellent food and always great service.
Had an absolutely outstanding meal. There were three of us and we had the scallops, fried oysters with grits, and lamb meatballs as an appetizer - meatballs were incredible. For mains two of us had the tenderloin with beet caprese and the other had the lamb. Tenderloin was melt in your mouth and they cook it exactly how you ask. had the lemon bombe for dessert and it was also incredible! Service was attentive but not in your face and the piano added great ambiance. The Highland area of Louisville was also a nice area to explore. I highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions, a nice date night, or client dinner to impress.
I highly recommend that customers be allowed to use gift cards to include tips, very disappointed for that exclusion.
This is hands down one of the BEST restaurants in Louisville! The food is outstanding and the service is spot on!
Our whole group loved the restaurant! I deduct one star is because I think my pork chop was a little dry but my friend's lamb chop was fantastic! Besides that, everything was great!
Fantastic meal as always
Wonderful celebration dinner, per usual!
Absolutely love this spot. Never a bad experience!
Wonderful food and service. Salmon was very tasty. Service impeccable. Atmosphere trendy and warm.
Highly recommended by friends. Our waiter Jamie was excellent. His recommendation of the special was spot on. We heard so much about the pork chop and it was excellent.
Laid back setting serving quality food and cocktails. Great ambiance and service was accommodating and welcoming!
Excellent experience; excellent food and service
Excellent meal-Great place! We each had a different entree and all three were outstanding. The salmon was delicious as was the risotto dish. The filet was heads above the other two dishes.
Jack Fry's is a go to for my family, whether it's Tuesday evening or a special occasional I can count on the food quality and service to be superb. They missed the mark this week. My pasta dish was not up to par, it was salty lacked flavor and so hot due to the inordinate amount of hot peppers atop the dish. The waiter never mentioned the heat the "special" of the evening would offer. When I mentioned my entree was too hot, he smiled, nodded, and walked away. My husband's steak was perfect as was my son's burger. The warm brie salad never disappoints. Will I return? Yes. Will I request my typical waiter? Yes. I expect a certain level of food and service. Hopeful that our next visit will be better.
Going away dinner
Service and food was amazing! Our server offered great food choices and everyone was pleased.
Great food. Acoustics are not the best. Very loud vibrant scene. Food was really great. We all loved our meals. And coming from NY, we are tough critics. A must for anyone heading to town!!
One of my very favorites. We always have wonderful and amazing service!!
Seeing as how I began by buying booze underage from Jack Fry, it’s a little more than a walk down memory lane for some of us. Nice to see Sue Seiller’s original classy conceptualization of a NY Bistro in Kentucky is still fully in extant and even improved upon. It’s a sheer joy to come back to “the scene of the crime”, and tuck into superbly prepared food with expertly delivered service. A Louisville treasure.
