Relaxing pre-Twins game stop for beers & dinner. The grilled catfish was beautifully spiced and moist. The service of Courtney was enjoyable and attentive. We will be back!

This is a Pork Chop and Cocktail place. Food otherwise is average. Ribs were tough and the wine list leaves a lot to be desired.

Incredible food, try a buddy bowl and the pig wings. Huge portions, even beer tastes better here. Easy valet parking, seated immediately. Can be formal or very casual. You can't go wrong, and you won't be disappointed!

Food was great +
Didn’t feel pressure to order, and wasn’t pressed to hurry up and eat
and get out so the table can be used again, specially for my uncle who loves to talk and we love to hear his stories, hope we didn’t wear out our welcome 😊 our server resembled Sandra Bullock 😎

Pat and the team at JDH just crush it. Hard to find a better value for a meal in Minneapolis. Steaks are fab, ribs are tender and meaty, even the seafood is really well done. And there is no better grilled pork chop to be found in America. And grab some buddies and get a Buddy Bow !!

Great local New Orleans style steak and seafood house. Lovely ambience. Many special occasion diners on the Saturday night we went. Nice semi private room available that looks to hold 30-40. All the food was tasty except the bland Cajun pasta. Somewhat pricey but a real value compared to other upscale steakhouses in the city.

First time diners who were very impressed. Loved the old time supper club ambience ! Service was attentive without being over bearing. The pork chops were the best I think I have ever had, especially with a side of Cajun béchamel sauce.
My husband had the scallops, which we were a little leary about being grilled and maybe over done. Not at all, they were perfect, crispy on the outside, moist and very flavorful on the inside. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

They had a power failure right after we ordered our meal. Nothing was served to us besides water. We sat there for over 20 mins wondering what was next, while the place continued to be have smoke going throughout the restaurant because of lack of ventilation due vents not working. Horrible 1st experience. The waitress was very apologetic but gave us no sense of new opportunity due to circumstances. I thought that was very careless!

Amazing evening with friends, last minute needed to add 3 to our already reservation of 6--total of 9! Without issues or missing a beat, we had a corner booth perfect for our group. To make it even better, the managing partner came over and shared the history of JD Hoyts with our out of town guests. A great place for our reunion, food was great--perfect night. Thank you.

Love this place! Hadn’t been there in years and had a fantastic time. Extraordinary service! Food was great, but honestly seems to have slipped a half-notch since I was there last (pre-pandemic)…but I have to give them a pass!
