JD Hoyt's reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Simply put, the food was excellent

    Dined on 2/25/2012
    Simply put, the food was excellent and a great value. The pork chops are tasty and huge! Their crab cakes are simply delicious. Steaks were very good, but I think cooked one level below what you order. So if you want medium, order medium well. Veggies were well done and the wine list was acceptable. Free valet parking is great, but the service was a bit slow.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 2/24/2012
    I went here for my sisters B-day. We ordered a bottle of Dom Perignon for the special occasion. It was as smooth as velvet. I ordered the single lobster tail and she ordered the filet mignon steak. For sides we had garlic mashed potatoes and their garlic bread. My lobster was the best lobster I've ever had. Perfectly cooked! Her steak was decent but not as good as Manny's. The ambiance is supper clubby. I think it could use an update while still keeping the supper club feel but it was as outdated looking as I expected. For dessert we got a complimentary banana split that was delicious. We had an awesome birthday experience!

    Visiting from out of town, I asked a friend who lived in Minneapolis area for some time for a good restaurant. His first suggestion was JD Hoyt's for its local flair. We were not disappointed. It has all the makings of an excellent steakhouse, but it is so much more. The menu is extensive and has enough variety. I had the combo Cajun Pork Chops and Ribs...and cleaned the entire plate. My companion had a Strip Steak, and it too disappeared abruptly. The ambiance is warm and unique, not 'me too' like many steak places. The service was welcoming helpful and overall fabulous. From the hostess to the waitress. Good wine listing. Very happy with the recommendation and very pleased with our overall experience.

    Been going to Hoyt's for years. Always loved the brunch. This time everything seems to have slipped a couple notches. Biscuits have gotten smaller, hardly any fruit, finished the great hash-browns and asked for more and got plain hash-browns. Asked for the good ones with the onions and peppers cooked in and she came back with the same hash-browns with some green peppers on top. No desert doughnut holes. Service was really lacking.

    I chose JD Hoyt's because of it is an institution in the area and has great energetic charm. The staff was extremely courteous and the steaks were cooked perfectly with a great smokey flavor. My dining experience lived up to my expectations and the Cajun hash-browns were fantastic and nicely completed our chop house experience! Just wish I had room for dessert.

    Reservations for 4 were at 7 PM and we were seated immediately when we arrived. Our server was prompt, took drink orders and returned to take our order. Onion ring appetizer was very good. The fillet, prime sirloin, pork chops and shrimp were delicious and done to prefection. The sweet potato and au gratin sides were also very good. No room for dessert at the end though. Will definitely be back to sample more of the menu.

    We enjoyed ourselves once again. Steaks were cooked exactly to order and the walleye was cooked to perfection. I did notice the bar keeps have turned over one more time. While adequate and engaging, they did seem to not be working as well together as previous staff. Overall another good experience. We will be back

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/18/2012
    I have been going to JD Hoyt's for many years. On many occasions I have had their pork chops and have considered them some of the best I have ever had. On my last visit, I ordered the pork chops and was greatly disappointed. They were overdone and lukewarm at best. I hope that this was a rare exception. That being said, one of the reasons I go to JD Hoyt's is because I expect them to care about the food they serve and to consistently present a quality product. .

    I took my boyfriend there as a surprise. He had never been there before. The owner delivered our food and made a point of stopping by to ask how everything was and made us feel like we were someone of importance. I work at a fine dining establishment and really attempt to do the same for my guests. The food was amazing!! Service was great!! Made it a belated Valentines day to remember !!

    Dinner was delicious and would have rated five stars but for the mixed vegetables that accompanied the main courses. They were undercooked, unseasoned, and detracted from the otherwise fabulous food. Crab cakes, filet, salmon, catfish, garlic mashed potatoes, and asparagus were all delightful, cooked perfectly, and well seasoned. The salads were also the perfect size and priced well. JD Hoyt’s is a classic steak and chop restaurant where anyone can find something to enjoy. And they have real desserts … nothing pretentious, just good old fashioned dessert.

    Well this was our 2nd time back within 2 months. The first time was for our Anniversary and this time was take the whole family out for dinner, something that we haven't done in a long time. The food was great from the Buddy Bowl & wings for apps. to the ribs and chops for my main course. Mike's potato's where amazing, we did wish the onion rings had more of a spice & kick to them. For dessert we shared the family dessert, it was a monster and all 8 of us couldn't even finish it all it was so big and good!!!

    Unacceptably slow and inattentive service. We waited nearly an hour to get our food and hardly anyone was in the restaurant. The quality of the food is slightly above mediocre but portions are very generous. Definitely not fit for foodies. This restaurant seems to be more appealing to those who value quantity over quality.

    As usual, an excellent meal at JD Hoyt's. Definitely a destination if you're looking for something a step up from the bar fare, but with a menu more diverse than you'd find in your average steak house. The Cajun pork chops are my favorite, and definitely worth the trip.

    It was busy night and overall service headed up by our server Quincy was great. Others came by from managers to bus boys touched our table to make sure our needs were met. Portions sizes were good and brought value to the experience. Food was solid but not as hot as we would expect but it was a packed house and understand it was the main challenge for the restaurant on New Years Eve. We will be back on a regular basis.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 12/30/2011
    Normally one of my favorite places to dine. Took out of town guests for a birthday celebration and were disapointed. Pork chops WAY overcooked, steak WAY over cooked (I think the grill cook either forgot or was not trained on what "black & blue" means). The sides were skimpy to say the least, and the noise level was awful. Since it was alater reservation, I think our waitress was winding down for the evening, and once our food was served, we basically never saw her again. I think I need to start looking for a new favorite steak place, especially if I want to impress my friends.

    The food is just ok, the service is just ok, there is nothing exceptional about the place, but somehow I find myself recommending it anyway. The owner is always there to shake a hand and check on the table and Junior at the bar is a character who makes a good drink. The location is convenient with free valet parking (where else do you get free valet parking)and the prices are reasonable. Stick with the pork chops!

    The Buddy Bowl appetizer was amazing and so was their signature pork chops. The only downside to the restaurant is its location. We thought we were in the wrong place because the neon sign of the strip club from next door made the restaurant appear as if it was part of the club next door. As long as the location doesn't bother you, the food and service are well worth the hunt for parking.

My wife just said this is the best cosmo I have ever had!!! We then had crabcakes! AWESOME!! For the main meal we had I had the famous porkchop! The best I have ever had! My wife had the steak. It was also fantastic. No desert as we were way too full!! I will be back to JD HOYTS again!
