Great place! The food portions are alittle on the smaller side for the price but overall I love and would spend my money here again !!
Highly recommended , food absolutely delicious, great staff, been here 3x so far with family. Will come back again for sure.
We had the Shrimp & Grits appetizer, both had the Salmon entree and shared the banana cheesecake. Everything was very good. Disappointed that there were only three small shrimp for the price of the appetizer. There should be three jumbo or five of the smaller shrimp. Service was exceptional. Unfortunately we had a large table of adults with younger children next to us that should have been told to use their inside voice. They were way too loud in a nice restaurant.
Excellent service & food
In Louisville for a week. The food was excellent the wait staff was tops.
We have made reservations for another night to
Excellent food and service as always! We had the filet, pork chop, and grouper with shrimp and grits and spicy fried oysters to start. All were delicious!
The food and atmosphere at Jack Fry’s is consistently superb
The pork chop, lamb chops, and salmon are fantastic not to mention the wonderful old-school feel of this restaurant! 5 Stars!
Jack Fry’s is an institution. One of, if not the best places for this type of food in Louisville. One can NEVER go wrong by making a decision to go. Easily a top 3 spot for my all time in Louisville. Get a reservation. Go. Enjoy all of it.
From the moment we sat down until we left, the service was extraordinary. And the food was just amazing. We wish we could have ordered one of everything! The scallops were perfectly seared and the parsnip purée with it was a joy. The tenderloin was also cooked to perfection, and fork tender. We enjoyed every minute of our meal and the experience of dining at Jack Fry’s. We highly recommend it and will be back next time we find ourselves in Louisville. A special shout out to the host who ordered us a taxi and when they didn’t come, she ordered an Uber for us, service that was over and above! We love you Jack Fry’s!
Thank you Sandra! It was a pleasure to have you join us, and we look forward to your return :)
Great food and service!
Great dining experience! The food was good, a little pricey but what made the meal was the best banana cheesecake I’ve ever had! Thank you!
Absolutely phenomenal! Highly recommend the escargot, scallops, and lamb. Everything tasted great. Service was great as well. Will be coming back for sure.
Great drinks, service, and food!
Fantastic as always. Unpretentious but elegant.
I forgot to ask for a booth and that makes a difference in the experience for me, but the food and service were outstanding!
Fantastic as always! Food, service and ambiance is always the best. My favorite restaurant in Louisville.
Amazing food, great ambiance and wonderful service!
Nothing bad on the menu! Loved the burgers and chicken salad this time!
Handle a group of eight with ease, and it was a wonderful experience.
Steak and salmon were truly excellent, as was service. Acoustics, particularly high ceiling, make sound level higher than normal but it is tolerable considering overall experience.
What a great meal! A reservation is a must since it is a bit small. The small size does create a noisy atmosphere. This is what I took off a Star on ambieance. The food and service were magnificent. It should be for the price. This is not a place for the kids and I am willing to pay extra for that fact. Thanks Jack Fry's for a GREAT anniversary dinner.
Great location, delicious food, knowledgeable staff on wine selections!
As always, JF’s never disappoints. Can’t say enough for the quality of the food and service. Looking forward to our next visit. Thank you
Food was delicious. The Bananas Foster cheesecake was out of this world!
Honestly is there a better restaurant in Louisville?
We had a family lunch that was unfortunately cut-short because of a family member’s illness. However, the staff handled it with aplomb. They quickly packaged up our food and allowed us to leave at all possible haste. The food travelled well and it was delicious.
Amazing food, great atmosphere, open when other places are closed. 10/10 would recommend!
Fabulous, as usual! Jack Fry’s never disappoints.
We have a wonderful meal at Jack Fry's. The food was cooked to perfection and came at just the right temperature. Our party ordered the pork chop, the salmon and the catch of the day. Each entree was served in a very flavorful way. We also enjoyed the cornbread side! Great meal and great service overall. We will be back!
Interesting setup. Nice menu. My pork chop was dry, but service was good.
Outstanding, impeccable service, amazing food, wonderful ambiance.
Very good experience. However, the Manhattan has gone downhill since last year we dined at Jack Frys. They no longer use high quality vermouth and use cheap cherries (no longer Luxardo). The filet was very good, but not excellent. We ordered medium rare and got medium. Also, the price of the steak had recently significantly increased.
The food was ok. After eating there for so many years and always being happy with the food I would like to see the menu updated and changed a bit. There isn’t a lot to choose from so it’s not difficult to have eaten you’re way through the entire menu after a few visits. Little over priced, especially for the appetizers. 17$ for shrimp and grits that only had 3 U20 shrimp in it? With the entree you can either get a 60+$ filet, or 52$ seafood option, both seem over priced. Other than that it’s not a lot to choose from. The pork chop I had was cooked perfectly and very good. But it was topped with bacon and made an already salty sauce even saltier. Still would recommend, it’s a Louisville landmark and the service is always exceptional. I would just like to see some new and improved food out of the kitchen.
In town in Louisville for only a few nights and wanted to find someplace a little more neighborhood-y than the big restaurants in the downtown hotels. Hosts were able to move our reservation up and got us a great table. Cocktails were great. The fried oysters were delicious. The service was completely on point and friendly as well. Cozy spot that felt very romantic.
The Hamburgers were not cooked as we would have liked, Otherwise all was good.
Jack Fry's did not disappoint! Excellent food and great atmosphere.
Nice lunch for two. Food excellent as usual
It was great as usual!
