“Won 19 'best of Louisville' awards”

JACK FRY'S was established in 1933 by Jack Fry and his wife, Flossie. Fry was known as a rambling, gambling kind of guy who loved amateur boxing and the ponies. As a result, Jack Fry's became a sportsman’s hangout, as evidenced by the numerous historic photographs that fill the walls of the current Jack Fry's. He was also known to conduct his bookmaking and bootlegging affairs discreetly from "the back room". He was a much-loved character who often gave a free meal to a needy friend. Jack closed his business in 1972. After ten years of renting this space as "Por Que No", a Mexican restaurant, it was re-established as Jack Fry's. Susan Seiller bought the restaurant in January 1987, the same year that saw the death of Jack Fry.In February of 2008, Susan passed ownership and sold the restaurant to longtime employee, Stephanie J. Meeks. Stephanie has been with Jack Fry’s since 1996, starting as a host and quickly moving her way up in management. As the new owner, Stephanie is proud to continue the tradition of this priceless Louisville landmark. Jack Fry's and its staff would like to thank Louisville for voting us  2012 'Favorite Restaurant' in Louisville Magazine's 'Best of Louisville' Awards. This brings Jack Fry's to an astounding 19 'Best of Louisville' Awards! We appreciate and are humbled by your loyal support!

This place is amazing! We had dinner here with the family and although the prices are a little on the higher side, it was still reasonable and totally worth it. I would go here all the time if I could. The decor in the place is also super unique. I felt like I took a step back in time. The outside of the building makes you question your decision, but when you leave you will not be disappointed!

We had lunch here and I definitely felt under-dressed in shorts-- the atmosphere is definitely not casual. However, the service was friendly and pretty much everything we had was tasty!
