Hoyt's Tavern is a nice pub by the Chicago riverside. It's location makes it a must-visit place. This tavern is also famous for its top notch customer service.
Hoyts Tavern's beer selection makes it possible for visitors to enjoy some of the best night drinks with the jolly bartenders that hang around until closing time. The jalapeno vodka and Bloody Mary, served with full garnishing is simply irresistible. The food prepared here is served fresh, crisp and hot. Grilled sandwiches are the most ordered items on the list. Even though the interior is totally family and guest friendly, outdoor seating by the river is without doubt, a ten on ten. All in all, Hoyt's Tavern, with its ambiance and food service can easily turn any regular evening into a wonderful memory.
Hoyt's American Tavern is my favorite place to hang out to watch sports, news, people & listen to live entertainment Friday nites. Staff there is most efficient, friendly & happy. I only hope all these excellent reviews don't cause too many crowds as now it's quite cozy & extremely will run. Excellent original & delicious menu at very reasonable prices. Hoyt's location directly across the river from Trump tower can't be beat & their summer outside seating is also unique & most comfortable. Hoyt's is the best! You can't go wrong.
This hotel restaurant is better than the average hotel restaurant. It is small, but has plenty of space for the diners. The meals we had were fine, especially for the 10 and 12 year olds. The wine was outstanding. Overlooking the river, the view was the best. I would go back for dinner or for some wine.
My friend and I went to Hoyt's for lunch for Chicago Restaurant Week. It took 20 minutes for anyone to take a drink order. After we'd been there for an hour, we still had only received our appetizers. Eventually, since this is LUNCH during a work day, we asked for the food to go. How disappointing to go out to lunch, only to end up eating at your desk anyway. It would have been more tolerable if the wait staff had talked to us or refilled our drinks, but they were missing. They didn't even apologize for how long they took.
I should mention that the restaurant was half empty when we got there.
The food was just okay. Nothing great. Some stuff was kind of bland.
The staff was friendly, the burger was great! We went for restaurant week. I had the pretzel is was warm and soft. Dessert was really good too
Very quiet maybe because it's winter. There was just another group besides us which was great. Food and service was very good.
The menu is limited and the sweet potato gnocchi was not as described on the menu. The chop chop salad had ingredients added that were not listed on the menu. It was a cold evening and every time the door opened a burst of frigid chicago air would swirl in. Server was great but he can't make up for the mediocre food.
After two visits to Hoyt's I'm surprised they are't packed all the time. The food is fantastic! The first time I dined here it was during Restaurant Week 2014 with a group of 6 and everyone kept going on and on about how great every single course was. My husband and I just went back again and had another great experience. The farro risotto I had was amazing! The service here is friendly and attentive. Make this a place to visit!
The food was incredible and the portions were very representative of the price. The cheese board was an excellent assortment and the fish was amazing. The shrimp appetizer could be a main course meal.
Not impressed with the quality and service for the price. Service was decent until the food came, then we never saw anyone again until I flagged someone down for the check. The whiskey sour was poorly made and not worth drinking. I assume I got the house whiskey since no one asked me what kind of whiskey or bourbon I wanted. The mac and cheese was actually the best part of the meal, but the beef tenderloin was passable at best. Considering what we paid, I expected much better quality and service.
Our group of 4 went to Hoyt's for the first time for a pre-theater dinner. We were surprised it was so small and since the Bar took up the majority of space, we figured the menu options would be limited and the food...not so special. Wrong! The menu wasn't large but eclectic and the food presentation and choices were anything but typical bar food (except for the burger that was exceptional). Our only negative was that the chef was a little heavy handed with the salt (and I'm a "salt" person). But it was all delicious and we'll definitely be back.
We visited after going to the Theatre nearby. It was a pleasant location with very good satisfying food. Our waiter went out of his way, making recommendation to make sure we enjoyed our visit. We plan on visiting again soon.
Great food, great service (but allow at least an hour for appetizers or dessert), great view of the Chicago River but beware that it can be loud. Tables for two are near the bar with TV screens turned to sports so your conversation could be drowned out by sports-watching bros. There are more romantic options in the city. Very generous portions to either share or take home for tasty leftovers. Decent wine list-I enjoyed the Tempranillo.
Great little place on Wacker for a quick bite or a good meal. Servers were very personable and efficient. Food was great! I had the filet of beef, and it was excellent! Took my 2 yr. old granddaughter and she enjoyed it as well!
We ordered the fall burboun cocktail, which was delicious. We also ordered the Mac and cheese and short ribs which were a flavorful delight and good sized portions. The lamb risotto fritter was okay. Nice ambiance as well
All the food was very good (we ordered a second pretzel!) and the craft cocktails were great. The service was friendly, atmosphere was cool and modern.
