Absolutely without a doubt the best eatery in Louisville. Always impeccable - everyone and everything.
It was very pricy and the food was just ok. I went here based on Trip Advisor reviews but wasn’t impressed. I got the chicken, it didn’t have much flavor. The broccoli and cauliflower had a strange spice. I did enjoy the blue cheese salad. We got banana cheesecake which was also very good. We hAd great service I just felt like it was over priced.
The Brie Salad is outstanding. The scallops were a little too salty. The pork chop was good but the sauce was also a bit salty. Won’t keep us from coming back. We love this restaurant.
There are not enough stars for this experience. My best friend was in town from NYC and I wanted to give her an amazing culinary experience. Jack Fry’s did not disappoint! The food was amazing and the service was excellent. We couldn’t have asked for a better atmosphere.
First time going to this restaurant I had heard great things. They were all true! We will definitely be going back, one of the best meals I’ve ever had. Great service and atmosphere.
First time dining here. It was fabulous! Outstanding staff and exceptional food. Top notch dining experience.
Server was rude and booth was too small for four adults. We requested a table as it was a business meeting and were told no. There were 2 open tables next to us. If this happens again I will no longer schedule business meetings at Jack Frys.
Good food and service as always. Unfortunately there was a very noisy table with young kids who were crying and fussing, so it was hard to have a good conversation.
Asked to be cooked Medium, received Done. Caramelized onions forgotten on burger
We got the scallops appetizer. It was delicious but there were (2) scallops for $19. All the entrees were also delicious. Waiter was great.
Love Jack Fry's, always a great dining experience!
My husband and I had an impromptu lunch date at Jack Fry’s.It was wonderful, as always! I’ve never had the hamburger, and it didn’t disappoint! Love the brioche bun! My husband had the cod fish sandwich! Delicious, as well!!! Vanessa is always lovely and with a smile!!! Thank you! 🤗
Wonderful server. Wonderful food. Ambience is awesome.
Great food, service and atmosphere!!! Interesting dishes were great
Came for my birthday and enjoyed great food and service
Great spot for birthday dinner! The piano player was spectacular! Thoroughly enjoyed to evening.
Great cocktails, excellent food. Fun waitstaff willing to give recommendations about the area. Great first night dinner!
A classic place that always seems to get it right!
Fantastic restaurant. Very in-demand, so service can feel a little rushed. But food quality is top-notch, great wine and cocktail menu. Fun, energetic, retro ambience. A great evening.
We visited from Michigan. Three generations! Mother, daughter, grandson. Booked a reservation as a special night out. Did not disappoint. Thank you for amazing food, service and experience!
Food was delicious, everyone at the table was really happy with their selections and would love to go back. Definitely a special occasion meal.
So happy to be back at one of our favorite restaurants. Everything was wonderful!
The food is outstanding. This is my favorite restaurant.
Jack Fry’s is our favorite dinner restaurant in Louisville. We have been many times and have always had a great experience. The staff is friendly and attentive without being overly familiar and cloying. The food is great (the lamb chops are my personal favorite, although the steaks are also great). We make it a point to go here every time we visit Louisville.
Loved everything! Would like to suggest a few more selections of wines by the glass.
My wife and I were delighted to be seated in the front barroom for dinner. Plus, we were seated in the NW corner booth. Being a Tuesday night, there was no live music. Recorded music was appropriately low. We arrived at 5:45 pm. Sound overall was low, at first, but unfortunately progressed to moderate-to-high as the room filled in and a group of six were seated next to us in the open area.
Bourbon drinks were excellent, especially the Malachi Manhattan. Catch of the Day and Pork Chop were delicious and generous, allowing for take-homes. Service was impeccable, especially by the gentleman who kept the water glasses filled and used dishes cleared...fast, efficient and very attentive! Though complimentary desserts for birthdays are no longer offered, our ordered ice cream was served by our waiter with a lit candle!A generous tip was hopefully shared with all.
Among the best dinner experiences we've had in Louisville. Will try a jazz night next time!
It is a very nice place to eat. I loved the old feel.
Jack Fry’s is our go to place in Louisville. Amazing food, service and the team is super nice and welcoming. Not a bad meal to be had there. I highly recommend Jack Fry’s!
Excellent food and service. Probably needs something other than hard surface walls and ceiling to moderate the noise.
We come here every year for our anniversary and this time I’m disappointed. The service is an easy 5/5 stars but the filet has gotten worse and the price has gone up. I ordered my filet rare, the cook was fine but the flavor wasn’t there and the potatoes and asparagus were bland and boring. Maybe it was just an off night idk
From start to finish everything was amazing!!
Cobb salad had traditional ingredients compiled into a ring mold with sliced grilled chicken on the side. Lovely presentation and salad very tasty but portion was more the size of an appetizer salad than an entree.
Chicken salad very good but you could break a tooth on the accompanying toasted cranberry bread. Ask them not to toast the bread to make it edible. Side of french fries was sublime.
We were very happy to be here. It felt like old-time Louisville and was full of mostly locals -- business groups, couples, groups of friends. The food was very good, the atmosphere energentic, and the vibe fun. We were very happy this was one of our choices on our short trip to Louisville.
Excellent food and service. The salmon was a favorite, plus the creme caramel and ice cream for dessert. We were just behind the entry stand and the noise level is fairly high (not super romantic). Very good food.
Took out of town guests here for dinner last night. Awesome service and food. We each had different entrées. All excellent. Wait staff very attentive and helpful Loved the Creme Caramel for dessert!
Wonderful as always. Our favorite place to eat in Louisville
It was great to get back to Jack Fry's after the last several months.
Alex, our waiter, was fabulous.
Food was exactly how I remembered it.
Went there for our wedding anniversary and the food/drinks did not disappoint. The service was fast even though it was a busy night. Would definitely recommend!
Everything was fabulous as it has Always been ‼️
