Pork Chop Sandwich
Nothing embraces our spices like a boneless pork chop, grilled and sliced.
N.Y. Strip Steak
A local legend! Tenderloin filet topped with our crab cake and béarnaise sauce served with asparagus and hash browns.
Wonderful food and service!
Super fun place with lots of awesome people, servers and excellent food and drink.
We love Hoyt’s
Is the best place to go for a outstanding dinner- valet is very very easy- leaving downtown is even easier yet-staff is friendlyand cordial- I’d recommend this restaurant 10 stars
Just a great place for cocktails, food & atmosphere in Minneapolis!
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!
Food was bland and cold. Would not return or recommend.
Really friendly staff and great food and the prices fair
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.
The Service and food was great excellent!!! Highly recommended.
We went here for our anniversary weekend and met some friends for dinner. The portions were generous and the wait staff was great!
Server was amazing and food was great !!!
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!
super yummy. birthday party for my husband and he went after two pork chops. i had the crab cakes. all were delicious. great service. great manhattan's. manager came over to see how we were all doing -- nice touch. loved going there and would highly recommend. oh, and get the pork chops!!!
Delicious food. Great service. Overall awesome dining experience (as always). Never disappoints.
All servers were spot on
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 😎
Don’t hesitate for a second… go to Hoyt’s! There is such a variety of total goodness! The hardest part of the experience is deciding what to order…
If you go to JD's you have to try the pork chops.
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 !!
Very good. Pork chop was a little bit red in the middle. Server was awesome and so was the experience. I would go back.
We always love Hoyts! The Owner Pat is always so welcoming and Courtney is a Great Server! Always knows what we would like! Food was Great as usual! Highly recommend!
Great food, gracious hosts and extremely attentive staff makes this an wonderful experience. Always a fun and delicious time.
I bought my daughter for the first time. The staff,Jodi, was amazing with et. Even when she stooped to dance at our table
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.
Our waitress was so knowledgeable and amazing!
We sat at the bar and loved it. The waiter "Junior" was awesome, he is a keeper! One of the best waiter/bartender I have ever had! The food was also great.
So great to finally be back here after a long absence-food just as good as always and it was a delight to see some familiar faces of the staff.
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!
Retro restaurant with killer food and friendly service.
Love the garlic cheese bread for the table! Drinks were generous and the Cajun catfish was the best I ever had.
Our server was wonderful! Thank you!
Great pork chops. Fun evening with a great vibe.
Can’t wait to get back for more!
Over cooked pork chops were a big disappointment.
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!
It’s such an enjoyable throwback it remains a modern novelty to this day. The music selection is almost as good as the food and service.
Had visitor from Chicago
Delicious. Fantastic service. Highly recommend to anyone new in town looking for great homestyle cooking with a cajun twist.
Outstanding!! Brought guest who agreed, GREAT PLACE
Always a great experience at Hoyt’s! Great food, service and ambiance! Thank you p
