    As always, the restaurant was perfect. Best Manhattan I’ve had in a long while, short ribs were perfect dessert divine. Proves again the Jack Fry’s is the best dining experience in the city.

    It’s the best dinner in town. And Brian on the piano was a great addition.

    The food and service was very good. We had a party of 4 on a Monday evening at 5:45. The place was packed and extremely noisy.

    Since moving to this area, we have enjoyed dining here. Unfortunately, the last couple of times the kitchen has sent out VERY salt heavy food, even after specifically requesting to keep salt to a minimum. This was not the case in all previous occasion. Very disappointing. We hope it will be corrected soon!

    My wife and I have been going to Jack Fry's for 38 years. We're still waiting for our first bad experience;) The food and drink are par excellence, but the real star is the space itself. It always feels so warm and welcoming, familiar, and comfortable. Like a best friend you haven't seen in years, it's so easy to take back up where you left off the last time. It will probably be another year before we're back in town and have an opportunity to go again...and I can hardly wait!
