Originally established in 1933, Jack Fry’s is Louisville’s famous fine dining haunt for fabulous food, impeccable but unpretentious service and live jazz in a boisterous, “speak-easy” atmosphere. Winner of 19 Best of Louisville awards for favorite restaurant, the passionate Southern cuisine with French influence is inventive yet timeless. The home-spun desserts are beautifully executed and the full bar offers a connoisseur’s wine list and perfectly poured classic cocktails. An experience as unique as Louisville!
