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
