Great food and environment. Service was quick and curious.
Beloved, delicious, charming, classic~ one of the favorite restaurants of our lives, every visit has been a sentimental joy, so deep grateful.
My husband and I celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary on 9/17 at Jack Fry’s. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with a warm welcome and everyone wished us a happy anniversary! The service is IMPECCABLE. The food is AMAZING. It was an evening to remember! Thank you for the best first experience ever!!!

This place was highly recommended and it did not disappoint. The wait staff is fabulous and the food worth every penny. Would definitely dine again, whenever I get back to Louisville.
Food was fabulously delicious. Atmosphere was romantic and elegant. Service was spectacular.
Great place , intimate setting. Excellent food and service.
Jack Frye's never disappoints. The service, food, and drinks are always outstanding. The fried oysters on grits are out of this world good. I have never had anything that wasn't superb and I have eaten there several times
Coming from San Francisco to take care of family affair, I chose to enjoy the best of the culinary fare in Louisville. Jack Fry's delivered it's high rating in spades with great ambiance of historic photos covering all of the walls to stellar service and devine food.
We were there for lunch and we had Shrimp and Grits for my initiation to Southern Cuisine and their daily specials of Short Ribs.
Had to try the local Bourbon Flight that was very satisfying.
Will was our server and he deserves a special mention for how much service affects our culinary experience with providing such cordial and professional experience.
My favorite restaurant in Louisville for over 40+ years. Have been here 50 times. From Louisville but live in Laguna Beach now. First time I have ever been seated in back. Did not enjoy the experience. Took away from the dinner.
Amazing food, excellent service & great ambience.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We hope to see you again soon.
My salmon and risotto with spinach was delicious! My husband got the steak and Mac n cheese with pork on top......he said it was dry and tasted old. A couple hours later and my husband was seriously sick for a few hrs. We won't be back
We enjoyed dining at Jack Frys with a reservation right when they first opened. The food was delicious (we had a burger and lamb chops and the caramel creme!) and definitely worth waiting for! That may be our only complaint was that while Ll of the service people were super nice and friendly, they were a little slow. We were enjoying ourselves so didn’t mind, but if you want a quick dinner, this may not be the time to visit.
It was loud in the restaurant but we enjoyed the piano player and choices of music. Overall a good anniversary dinner!
Stephanie is a model of restaurant business owner that we need in our community. She goes beyond the normal expectation as an owner for her customers and staff.
I appreciate the personal attention that she gives her customers to make them feel at home at Jack Fry’s
We had a wonderful anniversary meal. Everything was great!
Food flavor was good. The problem was the only hot dish that came was the the pork chop. Everything else; the steak, the ratatouille, and the mac and cheese were all pretty cold. Substantially colder than than the pork chop. The ratatouille was pretty much chopped veggies in store bought tomato sauce. Honestly, pretty disappointed in the food. The people and servers were great though.
This was our first visit to Jack Frys to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. Loved the pianist. He played for two hours straight without a break. Only wished we could’ve heard him a little bit better but the place was full and there was lots of conversations going on. Highly recommend Jack Fry’s! Fabulous evening!
Very good service and food. First time in 15 years we have been back . It was great then and great now.
This place does not disappoint! The ambience is incredible (live pianist, walls covered with historic photographs, sophisticated yet with a rustic patina) and the food is absolutely delicious. Have been here for lunch, date night, and family dinner and always leave sated in every way!
We had an amazing anniversary dinner at Jack Frys. The salmon, short ribs, mac and cheese and cornbread were delicious. Nicole our waitress was an added treat. We'll definitely return.
Our food was perfectly cooked and delicious. The portions are huge. Our waiter Lee was outstanding.
Great as always!
It was very loud, I couldn't really hear my husband talk, and he was setting across from me. We loved everything else.
Server Ashley was the best! Food was delicious. We will go back.
Just love everything about Jack Fry’s!
Fine dining with outstanding food, service and ambiance.
First time there. Will for sure be back for every special occasion.
Amazing! Every damn time!
For my recent birthday dinner and I had it all. The scallops were incredible. Seared, soft, spicy parsnip purée, crunchy quinoa. I cannot say enough. I will be ordering this as an entree next time- did you know you can get this app as an entree if you want. They add an extra scallop or two!
I then had the catch of the day. Sea bass with artichokes, asparagus, with some broth. Crispy skin was on the fish. So delicious.
And of course some dessert: cobbler, toasted marshmallow ice cream with caramel! Yummy!
Vanessa was just lovely. Great food and ambiance. Highly recommend the Manhattan...lights out!
Traveled from Chicago fir a concert in Louisville. The service was nice; amicable, attentive waiters. We needed to be out in around 70 minutes and they made it happen. The menu had a diversity of options. The food was attractive and well prepared.
Did not think restaurant was on A-game. Ordered a Brie salad. Very disappointed. I found only one piece of Brie in entire salad. The service was very good. Meal was not the best that I have had there.
Jack Fry's is the quintessential Louisville restaurant. Reliably good. Great food. Impeccable service. What more do you need?
Great food, excellent service.
Always great dining at Jack Fry's! It's simply one of my favorites. Vanessa always does a tremendous job! She is attentive and remembered my favorite drink. Just a special dining experience for lunch or dinner. Quality food and high end service. I highly recommend making Jack Fry's part of your dining experience in Louisville.
Great food. Oysters and Grits appetizer was fantastic. Salmon was really good also.
Another wonderful meal and great service.
Our waiter was excellent, we'll be back.
Loved the ambience and pictures on the wall. The old jazz music in the background was perfect and set the mood. Nicolle was an awesome server. She was so sweet and made great recommendations. Food and steak was cooked to perfection We will definitely be back!!!
