The pork chops and beef are delicious here. The bartenders are personable and very nice. Lots of good drinks and food selections.

We had a business dinner with over a dozen people last night and I have to say it was a great time at JD's. The tenderloin steaks, sides, wine and dessert were excellent for a fair price. Service was very attentive and polite. I'll definitely be back.

My husband and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary here and it didn't disappoint! My prime rib was cooked perfectly and our waitress was very knowledgeable about how all the foods were seasoned and prepared. We also got a free dessert! Highly recommend if you are looking for an upscale feeling and quality food.

I am a steak critic! And never complain at restaurants and didn't even complain at this one... But the prime rib was gigantic but didn't taste very good at all. It had no flavor and actually almost made me sick. Our waitress was slow, (which isn't really so bad) but she forgot a lot (refilling water, cleaning dishes, etc) I... More

Classic steakhouse/rib joint - they do what they do very, very well. Excellent food, cocktails, and service. A very good value. Sunday brunch is awesome.

Service was very good. The staff is very sociable. Pig wings were excellent. Jambalaya was very good. Clean facility. My only negative is that the plates of beef or pork were tremendous! One pork chop was like a whole sirloin steak. No person can consume ( or should consume) so much meat. Many plates went back to the kitchen with... More

Our table ordered pork chops, prime rib, shrimp and steak...the Spaulding. Pork chops were just ok....over cooked and dry. Spaulding and shrimp were good. Prime rib was way... More

We had a very nice dinner at JD Hoyts. Despite it being a Twin's night they had plenty of room and it wasn't loud, so you could actually hear everyone at the table. Two of us had steaks (rib eye and NY Strip) whIch were excellent. The pork chops on the other had were a bit dry. Big portions. The... More

I'm a foodie. I usually think I can cook better than most restaurants, but I LOVE this place. Its an old fashioned steak/ chops/ ribs restaurant that never disappoints. The bar is always busy. Great service, great food make this one of my favorite restaurants in Minneapolis.

Wonderful food that has always been on point. Service can be a little hit or miss but as long as the food is good and the drinks keep coming it worth the money and time.
