Our party liked their steaks. I had a good sweet potato and salad.
Ambiance was nice, reminded me of the steak houses I ate in as a kid.

From dropping off the car at valet parking, all the way through to picking it up- it was perfect. Superb wait staff, great recommendations. Excellent food. No 'over sell' for the table for appetizer sizes- and excellent meals (we all had a variety, so to pick one over the other is not fair- all were good). Will be there gain sooner, than later. And the price, for downtown was totally within reason. A value for a wonderful experience and most of all, food that was outstanding.

We had the best time celebrating our niece's recent graduation. The whole place is a class act. Everyone went above an beyond to make our night comfortable and fun; including seating us a half hour early, dealing with our youngest who is an inexperienced diner, and bringing the most lovely dessert for our table to enjoy as part of our celebration. Not once was anyone flustered or impatient with our gaggle of six, including four teenagers. And we had a fabulous meal too. Somewhat surprisingly everyone loved the pasta probably the most, though we had pork chops, ribs, a fillet, and lobster too. The place has a great energy too. Would definitely recommend for a celebration. Service, food, and atmosphere all excellent, and very fun as well.

Buddy bowl with shrimp was great. Wouldn’t call their garlic toast world famous, just regular old garlic toast. Seafood gumbo was good. The Caesar salad was just okay. The swordfish was excellent as well as the pork chop, scallops and the steak spaulding. The lobster was bland to me but others really liked it. The lobster risotto was awful.
The desserts were great and very shareable as they were huge! Our waitress was outstanding. Overall a fun, good dinner for our monthly dinner club.

I've been going to Hoyt's since it opened. Never had a bad ;meal. Service is always excellent. The place has an old time supper club feeling. Management and staff always very friendly and professional. It is my favorite restaurant.

We love the JD Hoyt’s vibe. Pat is the best and it’s like coming home to the friendliest place in town. We have been coming for years and it never disappoints us. Food the best in town and we always have plenty to bring home for the next day. From manager, to servers, bartenders and valets, service is always over the top. There isn’t a better steakhouse in town! When we leave we always comment... why don’t we get here more often... this is just the most fun and best place to be.

A good “go to” though the last two times I’ve dined there, the beverage and food timing has been poor. Salads arrive before the drinks and entrees a minute or two after the salads. Both times there were comments from the wait staff (which are very attentive) that the kitchen or bar is backed up.

Hoping for a well paced and not rushed experience the next time.

It was a nice evening but pricey for that meal. Parking is not cheap, which is a problem not unique to your restaurant when people want to get together downtown. For some, I bet it is an incentive to patronize competitors in the suburbs.

Two of us had the same entree, and mine was significantly larger than my friend’s dinner. The server was not super interested in discussing it with us.

It also was quite loud.

I haven't been to JD Hoyts in about 5 years...the quality of the meat was average. I expected more. I used to LOVE the food there. It was mediocre this time. The service was fantastic. Bartender and our server both amazing.

We had a 6:45 reservation for 6 on New Year’s Eve and were seated immediately in a large booth. It was our first time and really liked the “supper club” ambience. Although it was very busy our server answered all of our requests and never made us feel rushed. Our dinners (steaks, salmon, shrimp) were delicious. We greatly appreciated the owner stopping by to make sure everything was to our liking. Will definitely return.
