A word from Hoyt's Tavern
With views of the iconic Chicago River, Hoyt's Chicago reflects modern tavern fare while focusing on the atmosphere of a Chicago neighborhood dining experience. We feature seasonal, market fresh, and healthy offerings while emphasizing Hoyt's creative twist on traditional comfort foods. Get your day started "Hoyt's style" with a cup of coffee and a pastry, or choose from our a la carte and "grab and go" breakfast options. We pack big tavern taste into our lunch items, where you can grab a quick mid-day bite in between meetings or enjoy a late lunch. In the evening, Hoyt's tavern comes alive to capture an after work crowd looking for a high energy and social environment. Hoyt's dinner menu features signature shared items like Hoyt´s Lobster mac & cheese and our calamari, balanced with simple, yet sophisticated tavern entrée items like Beef Short Ribs or our Blue Crab stuffed salmon. Our all American wines, beers and cocktails will complete your evening with a memorable spin.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "It was the ideal spot for a nice evening out with the family. Great food with options for every pallet, especially finding a middle ground for meat-eaters and vegetarians."

  • "For a hotel restaurant, and let's be clear, that's what it is, in the lobby of Hotel 71, it's pretty good. Not standard pub fare - I had a lamb burger and there were some other good options on the menu. We went on a Thursday night just because we were in the area. It was dead - only one other couple in the place. Service was very attentive. My "medium" burger was way overcooked, definitely well-done, which was disappointing because the flavors were otherwise good. Fries great. Wife's beet/carrot salad was good but could have used some more cheese. If I needed to eat in the Loop area, I might go here again, if Elephant & Castle was crowded. But I wouldn't seek it out."

  • "My wife and I went to Hoyt's, first time this week - there are so many great choices on the menu that we are going to need a dozen more trips to "eat-our-way through the menu. We started with with fried cheese curds; I had the braised pork shank; my wife had the lobster macaroni & cheese; and we finished with chocolate espresso mousse. Everything was great - and we are going back."

  • "In an effort to get a last minute reservation for a group of 10 we ended up at Hoyt's Tavern. The food was great, although the menu was a bit limited on options, and the service was accommodating to our large group. If you're visiting for a short trip, I'd recommend a more unique-to-the-area restaurant (we didn't realize it was basically a hotel restaurant) but you can't go wrong with good tasting food here - be sure to get the truffle fries!"

  • "I came here on a Sunday night so it wasn't too busy but there was only one server working. He was a veteran and did well with the amount of tables but I felt he was a little rushed and couldn't provide the level of service they were aiming for (or I hoped for). He knew his stuff and was very friendly but it's just difficult to juggle that many balls successfully. The food and the drinks were fantastic! In many places you dont expect too much from hotel restaurants but in Chicago there are so many hotels downtown they've upped their game to compete and come out very well. This isnt going to be the hot spot in downtown but if you're looking for a table and a great meal give it a chance!"

  • "The service was good, they were attentive and the bartender was really nice. The food was a little slow to come out of the kitchen at first but only for the appetizers. We ordered the pretzel with spicy mustard and a beer cheese fondue and the scallops which came on a corn mixture. Both were good, the pretzel wasn't anything special. We both had the dr. pepper glazed short ribs which were on top of mashed potatoes and both were very good. The short rib just fell apart with your fork. For dessert we had pumpkin cheesecake which was just okay and a chocolate mousse. The mousse was excellent and had a bailey's flavored whipped cream. Overall it was a good dinner and I would go back to try other items on the menu."

  • "I had the Pan Roasted Amish Chicken Parmesan sticky black rice risotto, spinach, hen of the woods mushrooms, red wine jus and it was delicious. Their version of a Manhattan was great. Also, the Braised Port Shank leaves a lot to be desired. I think the temperature outside was hovering around zero so there were not any crowds to contend with. Great atmosphere and wait staff. Worthy of the return trip."

  • "We were going on a tour and decided to stop for an early drink and lunch. Very nice décor with an attentive bartender. Turkey burger with truffle fries was very tasty. Would got back in the future."

  • "We were happy to have a good sounding restaurant to our Hotel Club Quarters when we arrived in Chicago. We'd read previous reviews that were slightly unfavorable, but those were from 2011. The food was good, they had a nice selection of craft beers, a great martini, and they made a stab at a sidecar, which wasn't bad. If we'd known they were open for breakfast we would have gone there."
