Service is poor and the quality of the food is low and the choice on the menu terrible. So many better places in Chicago

We came here one night and split the Reuben, and a Kale Caesar Salad which was more than enough for us, having tried the Poutine first. Enjoyed the meal; Nice atmosphere.

Stopped into Hoyt's while enjoying the river walk. Enjoyed eggs Benedict with a great Bloody Mary. It was a Sunday and the Bears were playing and there was a large tv and couch set up on the patio. People seemed to enjoy the outdoor seating.

Yes they have a Happy Hour. Limited drink selection but sufficient and the wine I tried was decent. They also have have a HH menu while not huge it is more than sufficient and everything we had was delicious.

With views of the iconic Chicago River, Hoyt's reflects modern tavern fare while focusing on the atmosphere of a Chicago neighborhood dining experience. We feature seasonal, market fresh, and healthy offerings while emphasizing Hoyt's creative twist on traditional comfort foods. Get your day started "Hoyt's style" with an outstanding cup of Starbucks coffee and a pastry, or choose from our a la carte and "grab and go" breakfast options. We pack big tavern taste into our lunch items, where you can grab a quick mid-day bite in between meetings or enjoy a late lunch. In the evening, Hoyt's tavern comes alive to capture an after work crowd looking for a high energy and social environment. Hoyt's dinner menu features signature shared items like cheese curds and our calamari, balanced with simple, yet sophisticated tavern entree items like beef tenderloin or our seared salmon loin. Our all American wines, beers and cocktails will complete your evening with a memorable spin
