We've been coming to JD Hoyt's for over 30 years and are never disappointed. Pat and the staff treat us like rich relations whenever we come in. We know the menu by heart and are never disappointed with a meal. We'll be back--again and again.
JD Hoyts has a menu with several tasty selections. The Buddy Bowl is a favorite of mine. But the steaks are really good and fairly priced. Service is always friendly and timely but never intrusive. It is a bit noisy so one of the members of our group is hard of hearing so that made conversation a bit of a challenge as the restaurant and bar filled up. But all enjoyed the evening. Excellent martinis.
I enjoyed a delicious Filet with Asparagus, and my wife had the Halibut special.
We were able to enjoy this premium meal for under $100 with a glass of wine. I would recommend this to anyone! Thanks for a great dining experience.
Live everything about this place. This time I left something there and the hostess and bus boys went over and above to try and find it for me. Amazing service and great food. What else is there?
Had an amazing time their. The Lobster Tacos were awesome. Service was Great! No complaints at all.
We had a reservation for 8 people at 5:30pm to dine with family and friends from out of state. We were surprised and embarrassed when our server told us at about 8pm that they needed our table for another reservation at 8:15. We have never had this happen to us before. There were several open tables throughout the restaurant that could have accommodated a group of 8. We've always loved our dining experience at JD Hoyt's but after being told we would need to leave, we'll have second thoughts about entertaining at JD Hoyt's in the future.
Dinner with my son and his wife. We had scallops, lobster and salmon. Great salads and way too many sides. The vegetables that came with our meals were yummy and would have been plenty.
The great food was provided by great service.
With all the new restaurants in town, this is still head and shoulders above the rest. Great service and the vibe in there is unmatched.
Always amazing food but you just enjoy the staff, their knowledge, their personality and their dedication to making you feel welcome. We don't get downtown much but we are loyal customers. Thanks for keeping the standard of your food and staff where we remember from our other visits.
PArker was great...Foood was awesome.. love this place. Open Table
We had a wonderful experience. We made dinner reservations but ended up sitting at the bar. Junior the bartender made our experience even better! Thanks and we’ll be back for sure!
JD's is always great, we go there every year for my Dads birthday so he can get the big pork chop! I always tell people to. get the Buddy Bowl!!
The food was below average. The scallops were tasteless and the calamari had no flavor
Just did the Sunday brunch with another couple. Fantastic food quality, quantity, and service.
Great food and service only complaint is it was a bit loud but that could’ve been because it was a weekend night!
Gathered our adult offspring and their spouse/date for a Sunday birthday brunch. Family skillet style brunch featuring a nice array of breakfast & lunch selections and we enjoyed excellent service from Melissa! Have come here often for both important business & memorable social dinners. Always a great experience!
The food is always great. Never had anything I have not liked.
Great service, great food, we had a really good evening.
Great restaurant, the prices are a bit on high side but the food quality and portion size make up for it! Staff is friendly and knowledgeable about menu items, one of Minneapolis' "hidden gems"!
My first time dining at JD Hoyt's and it will not be my last! Brittany was an exceptional waitress and will request her table on next visit for sure!
Love this place
Service, food and ambiance was excellent!! Our server was excellent. Courses were perfectly timed!
We always have a great experience here. The food and service is excellent. We love having Kate as our server. She does her job so well and is very nice!
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.
Awesome service and food as always!!! Attentive staff and Pat is a great host!
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.
We attended for Valentines Day great seating privacy yet in. N open space owner came to table to check our meal. Server friendly didn’t hover but attentive free valet service!!! Food was great!!!
An old staple Great choices for fish or meat entrees.
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!
Favorite restaurant in the city - daughter wanted to go for dinner to celebrate her birthday. A+ food and service as always!
We were taken care of absolutely as well as possible. All was great.
Bloody Mary’s not so great but everything else was fine!
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!
Had an early dinner and drinks before a pre Superbowl event. Great atmosphere and the food, as always, was fantastic. We have been going here for years and it never disappoints.
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.
