    I give this restaurant three stars because I wasn't too impressed with their food. Definitely has a classis style to it. The apps and sides were decent. I was quite Impressed with the quality of the filet for the price, but I wouldn't pay the extra for a crab cake on top. The lobster risotto was also quite tasty. Good, but not the quality I am used to when I think of a memorable dinner.

    Stopped on our way to the Garth Concert and found the staff to be attentive and friendly. They had great recommendations and the Kitchen fully delivered with superb food. You must try the famous Pork Chops and the Buddy Bowl for an appetizer. In fact it was so good we stopped on the way back to have dessert after the concert. Highly recommend for something different with a Cajun Twist!

    Hoyt's is a great place, good food, and good service. One can tell that they are trying to make your visit an enjoyable one. However, the noise level can get unbelievely load when the place fills up. But I have to blame the patrons for that. It always amazes me that people have no respect for others or even fine food establishments.

    I booked JD's because I wanted a nice restaurant to celebrate my 50th b-day with my two brothers and some good friends. What I love about this place is that you get great food, great service and a great atmosphere without the pretentiousness and higher prices of other DT steakhouses. The owner (Pat?) came over and said talked to us for a bit. Great guy! The pork chops and buddy bowl are worth all the hype--delicious! Two guys got the steak Spaulding, which they devoured. I felt like we chose the perfect dinner location and JD's helped create some great memories we'll always remember. Can't wait to return!

    I've been coming to JD Hoyt's for probably 20 years and it is always excellent. The prices aren't ridiculous like at some other steak places, and since I'm not a meat eater, there is also a great selection of seafood...I have the cajun scallops, AGAIN...chicken, pasta, etc. But it steak or their gigantic pork chops are your choice, you absolutely can't go wrong. Incredible garlic cheese bread and hash browns, too. More than ample portions. I've never left here hungry. And the unpretentious atmosphere is so comfortable that it's hard not to return over and over again.

    We go to JD Hoyts for dinner often, however, this time we decided to try their brunch. Wow - is all I have to say. We decided to try their table/family style brunch. There was so much food and it was so good. I think it's the first time I had a pork chop for breakfast. The food, the service and the atmosphere was top notch. This is a great place to bring out of town guests.

    We ate there with another couple on a Sat night. It was the first visit for all of us as we usually go to the higher end steakhouses (Manny's, Seven, Capital Grille) so we were not sure what to expect. The food was great. Their specialty seems to be items with cajun or Jamaican flavoring. I had the scallops and my wife had a filet. Both were great. The best part is when the bill arrived, it was about 40% lower than it usually is when we frequent the other establishments. We will still continue eating at our normal restaurants but JD Hoyts is definitely on our rotation list now!

    I had been hearing lots about JD Hoyts and was curious about their food. I went to college in New Orleans so the vibe was already there. I took my fiancé there for his 28th birthday, because it was one of the places we had yet to go downtown. We have been to all the best steak houses and seafood restaurants and JD Hoyts was our final place. One word AMAZING!! The feel was great - it was a real 5 Star dinner without the dim lights, quiet environment and dressed up customers. It was almost like a luxury sports bar - the vibe was great. Valet was cheap and very quick, which was nice after a big meal (its also just added to your bill so there is no worries about having to pay for things twice). The food was superb!! TRY IT!! GO GO GO!

    The "upper" bar seating was very nice and the bartender was wonderful. A mistake was made on my snack and she cheerfully replaced it (and left the original delivered so my husband could eat it!). The dining room was very nice; server was very attentive. One of our sides was delivered and it was lukewarm; the server cheerfully replaced it. A manager stopped by to see how everything was but didn't seem to know about the error (and didn't introduce himself so we assume he was a manager). Valet parking was friendly and quick. Will stop by here again.

    We had a booth on the corner right next to the bar and front entry and we were right in line of everyone that came in and left - extremely noisey and so distracting. We had requested a booth in the old part but NEVER expected this. The register was right at our elbows! The booth was very cramped as well. Our advice: do away with this booth!!
