So you have to go here because it’s Jack Fry’s and been around forever. It’s an old time steak house with great service and good wine. It’s dimly lit and small. The food is solid and good. There are black and white old time photos...More

I have gone here for years, and consistency, quality and atmosphere are top-quality. The restaurant is so well loved, you should probably make reservations two weeks or more in advance, it's not a large place, and always full. The menu changes with some frequency, so...More

Don’t get all the hype about Jack Fry’s. The menu not all that appealing. Expensive. Cramped. Not all that accessible. The food tastes good, as it should, but nothing I’ve had makes me say I MUST come back and get it again. Staff does not...More

There are lots of places to eat along Bardstown Rd/Baxter Ave in Louisville, but this is one of my favorites. It looks like an old house, and it can be a bit crowded inside. It may not be the fanciest place, but the food is...More
