Diner Reviews
  • "The menu was great - steaks, chops, ribs, and a few seafood selections. It all looked so good. I need to go back so I can try everything. We had the cheese plate to start. It was a lot of cheese/fruit/crackers for 2 and could easily satisfy 4. It was great with our wine selection. I had the steak and crabcake and it was great with a wedge salad. Wife had filet and said it was great. Our server knew the menu cold and made some great suggestions. Prices were pretty reasonable too for the quality of food and service. But I did think some of the wines were overpriced and they have a pretty steep corkage fee if you bring your own wine in. Had a very nice time there and would definetly go back again."

  • "Totally underwhelmed with the food. Service and ambiance were good, but didn't make up for the poor tasting food. Lousy calamari, but huge portion. Burgers charred on outside, nearly raw in the middle when ordered medium. Homemade chips worse then bag chips. Thought the meal was a waste of money."

  • "This was our second time at JD's and we loved it this time as much as the first. Great service, great food and a nice quiet atmosphere. My only complaint was that I asked for my hashbrowns well done and they did not come out that way, but the rest of my meal was outstanding. We ordered lobster risotto to share--to die for!! I can't wait to go back again!! This has become our favorite place to go for a good steak/nice dinner that doesn't break the bank!"

  • "Share the pork chops - they're great. Great stopping off point before Twins games. A little noisy and not the best ambience outside but not bad either."

  • "I was there for a first official date. The food was excellent, however the noise level is a little overwhelming when trying to have a get to know each other conversation. Fun atmosphere with great service."

  • "Great place to eat. Huge food portions. Excellent service. Went there on a friend's recommendation, and it delivered. I guess I'll keep him around for a while until he screws up."

  • "We have eaten here several times and always great! My husband loves the gumbo here. With the cheese bread they bring you, don't really need to order and appetizer unless maybe with a large group or big appetites. We have and the corn bread with honey, awesome! Our son always gets the salmon, I usually stick to the ribs, my favorite! I have had the small filet which is really enough for a woman's appetite, my husband has had the pork chop and that was incredible and tender too. Dessert is delicious also, the grilled bananas is great and enough to share."

  • "Food and service were wonderful. The pork chop was delicious; best ever. Would suggest you split order because no one could eat two. Prices are high; salad was extra; anchovies on salad were extra."

  • "This was our second time at JD Hoyt's. The pork chops are amazing as is the steak. I had swordfish which was very good too. It's a bit on the expensive side, but it's downtown and has good food. For example a glass of generic Pinot Noir wine was $14, and a small piece of chocolate cake was $10. We both enjoyed our main courses but weren't impressed with the desserts. Overall we enjoyed our meals and will go back for our next special night."

  • "We had tickets to the theater, even though it was a distance we decided to give JD Hoyt's a try and we were not disappointed. The valet parking was very convenient. The server made sure everything went like clock work. She was very attentive to our needs and was very pleasant. I had the pork chop/rib combo, it was wonderful. The chop was moist and flavorful. The rib was a dry rub but came with a side of Bbq sauce, did not need the sauce the ribs were mouth watering. Would definitely go back."

  • "We took a couple of fathers on Father's Day. They are famous for their pork chops and rightly so. They're perfectly done and huge. Our server was the best we've had in a while. She was knowledgeable, efficient, and had a personality that added to our dining experience. While the place was pretty busy there was a very acceptable noise level, which is a wonderful change of pace from many of the newer restaurants that seem to think jet plane noise levels add energy."

  • "except for the porkchops-which were excellent as always-food was very bland and flavorless, esp the halibut which was awful (like eating sawdust).Kind of a let down-Hoyts has always been so consistent."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Highly suggested destination, turned out to be a new favorite for us. The ambiance and service were perfect and the food was impressive both in appearance and flavor. The suggested pork chops were as amazing as described, and the steaks were cooked to perfection. We will definitely be returning."

  • "This is far and away the best brunch in town! I have loved it for years and it never disappoints!"
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "This was our first visit to Hoyts for brunch, we have had lunch and dinner numerous times. When we read the list of items for the brunch we thought it was family style to share, when we received eat each person was served everything 2 sausage links, two pork chops, a slice of ham, a pile of scrambled eggs, two biscuits with enough gravy for 8 and cajun hashbrowns. Trying to decide what to eat first was the challenge. Half of mine came home with me. If you love brunch but hate the buffet style ones you NEED to go to Hoyts you definitely wont leave hungry. If you dont want all that food they do have other options, one in our group had the french toast which looked and was amazing. Another great dining experience at Hoyts."

  • "Incredible food with even better service. Very reasonable for the menu offering. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The pork chops are out of this world. For under $30, you and another person can split the two-chop plate and still have enough to bring home. We went for an early dinner when the twins were not playing in town so it was pretty low-key. The toddler and infant we had in our group were welcome and were able to eat the sides, I didn't ask about a kids menu. We love going here for dinner because it is always really great food and friendly, attentive service."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "This was the first time dining at JD Hoyt's and the entire party had an enjoyable time. Everyone loved the food, and the service was excellent. Kate, our server, was pleasant and knowledgeable. We would definitely dine here again. The prices were quite reasonable, which is something for me to say, as I am notoriously cheap! "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "They do not offer a kids menu, but were willing to accommodate for my young kids. I ordered what I thought was a safe choice for a side (mac & cheese), but it was too gourmet for them. My kids like steak but again, they were too gourmet for them. Dessert was a hit!"
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "We went to JD Hoyt's for the first time because I had purchased a Groupon for a Sunday brunch. We were amazed at that quality of the food and the amount! Everything was fabulous."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "I generally like JD Hoyt's but our recent brunch experience was pretty average. The food came out on two separate platters, one each for my wife and I. I understand it is "family" style and this is how they do it with only 2 people but it was just a huge mess of meat mostly. Food tasted okay but not outstanding. I love their Cajun chops and would go back for dinner specifically for them but really doubtful we'll do brunch here again any time soon."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "We celebrated my daughters college graduation with 15 people at JD Hoyts and it was fantastic. Great food, Great Service! It was also my husbands birthday and they created an amazing desert platter that really topped it all off. Our servers we so freindly and did a great job."

  • "My husband took me to J.D Hoyt's for a belated anniversary dinner. My first time, but he has been many times. I ordered the New York strip with blue cheese, it was awesome. I got Mac and cheese on the side, I didn't think it was anything special. It was a slower night, so lots of wait staff we're checking on us, a little annoying. Our actual waitress was a little dry. We weren't dressed to the 9's, so maybe she didn't want to waste her personality on a couple she didn't think would tip. Who knows. Overall I would definitely visit again."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "We ordered scrambled eggs and it took over an hour before we were told that they had run out of eggs! Sunday brunch at 1:00 PM and they run out of eggs!?"
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "we were seated right away. It took a waitress 15 min. to ask us for a drink order. we then ordered the brunch for all 7 of us . she took another 15 minutes to bring us our drinks and did not come back for refills for a half an hour, we did not receive any food for 1 hour and 15 minutes. As we looked around it did not appear to be busy. For a sunday brunch I thought this was very unreasonable."

  • "We made the mistake of coming downtown just when crowds were parking for a Twins game. We finally found street parking with a meter. Now to the food - we ordered the Sunday brunch and were pleased the selections and the volume for the price. Delicious!! Our waitress brought us a box to take home the abundant left over meat. All in all, it was a very nice time for two old ladies. Thank you."

  • "I frequent the restaurant several times a year and the experience is always awesome. I dined with several friends visiting in town and they loved the food and restaurant. For one friend from Pittsburg, this was his second visit to Hoyt's and he's the one who selected the place for our meeting and dining place. I always look forward to dining here."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "I was reminded why I loved JD Hoyt's the last time I was there. The food was outstanding, the service impeccable and an all around fun atmosphere. The chops and rib combo is the way to go. I was trying to find something fun for a group and it was perfect- all seven people loved the experience. I will be back soon!"
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • " This has been a favorite steak place of mine for many years but unfortunately it let me down this visit. My guest ordered a small tenderloin which was fine, as were our "dirty rice" side dish, drinks and desert. The vegetables du jour were overcooked and my small cut of prime rib was quite disappointing. I've always had excellent chops and steaks here in the past. The server was very pleasant and helpful. I'll try again."
