We visited JD Hoyt's on a Sunday evening after a Vikings game with one of the players who we're friends with. There was a rather large group of us (around 15), so we were able to sit in a private room with the games on a projector screen the size of the wall. We started out with appetizers of fried calamari, crab cakes, and the "Buddy Bowl". Everyone talked up the Buddy Bowl before we went so I was eager to try it. Be prepared because it is HUGE! The base is red beans and rice, topped with melted cheese. There is an assortment of seafood on top including scallops, grilled shrimp, and what I think was tilapia (sometimes the white fish is hard to tell apart). It was all very good with cajun seasoning. I think the scallops were probably my favorite part because they were just so perfectly cooked. The crab cakes are AMAZING, and I'm not exaggerating, A-MAZING. They have a beautiful sauce on top and just melt in your mouth.
For the main dish, I chose the 5-oz filet with scallops. It came with a side of vegetables, and we had a side of hash brown potatoes. That was probably one of the best steaks I've ever had. They have an equally impressive wine and drink list. I chose the Meiomi Belle Glos pinot noir and it complimented the steak perfectly. Our servers were absolutely wonderful and very knowledgeable about the menus. I would absolutely go back again!
