The food was good. Not enough non Cajun choices. I would have ordered much different if I could have had plain Bernaise sauce instead of Cajun Bearnaise cause. Or ribs done with out the Cajun rub prior to cooking. Instead I had to order off of the Appetizers menu for my meal because there I could get plain Pig Wings. Maybe some pasta without Cajun spices, that too would be awesome. We loved the relish dish, and the chips! Hash browns rocked, Mac and Cheese,delish! The pork chop, thick and juicy! The table bread should come with a warning, " wonderfully sinful, garlic and buttery". Thanks for a nice evening.

Great atmosphere. Great service. Great food. Prices are definitely affordable. Not too fancy, where you'd have to dress up just to eat. Would absolutely visit JD Hoyts again.

Great restaurant for meat lovers; has a good selection of dishes, but meat is their specialty. Comfortable, not ostentatious. Everyone on the staff was friendly and eager to help.

First night of a Mnpls weekend. It was cold out so we walked from the hotel in the skyway to one block from the restaurant.
We were seated immediately. Great wine list.

Pork shank app was unbelievable.

We both ordered the 8oz filet and they were amazing. Especially for the price.

Easy uber back to hotel after meal.

Will make this an every trip stop.

My steak was one of the best I've ever had. My husband had the scallops and they were also really good. Terrific, personal service. A fun "old school" experience!

Ribeye steak was cut too thin. Chef could not grill the outside hot enough to even show grill marks and keep medium rare. Prime rib was a bit charcoaled on the outside and this overwhelmed the taste of the meats. Sides were awesome - risotto and penne pasta.

My number one favorite restaurant in Minneapolis! Mega prime rib is my favorite go to, but right up there are the rest of their steaks pork chops catfish and ribs!
Always excellent service-a great comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. It’s like dining with family!

Food was marginal, had alot of toilet time the next day. I had the ribs/pork chop combo and the garlic mashed. Shrimp was not good. Must be the reason Red Cow is doing well.

Great meal, service, atmosphere as usual. I brought past Viking Super Bowl QB Joe Kapp and his son and told them I’d put my reputation on the line that they’d love Hoyt’s. Pat and crew lived up to my billing for them, and the Kapps are eager to return.

JD Hoyt's is one of our favorite places to dine in the Twin Cities, and we are foodies who like to dine out a lot. The menu is mostly basic steakhouse; really really good .. with a few surprises, but the staff is what makes this place special. From the guys who park your car through the final smile and "goodbye", their friendliness and teamwork has been top notch every time we've dined. No matter how busy or quiet, and whatever the time of evening, these people make us feel completely welcome and appreciated. Somehow I usually end up building around a pork chop as the centerpiece of a meal, but other main dishes are excellent as well. We highly recommend JD Hoyt's!

We have been here before and enjoyed our food. We had the pork chops again, a medium buddy bowl, mashed potatoes and a sweet potato. The chops are very thick with a cajun seasoning cooked on a fire grill. We have had these before and they were delicious at that time. This time my pork chop was rare near the bone and dry towards the outside. I didn't notice any flavor at all. I only ate a small part of it because it just wasn't enjoyable. The buddy bowl was good, but nothing fantastic. The service was slow which was unusual as well. For almost $100 for two people without dessert we were underwhelmed this time.
