Great atmosphere on their outdoor patio. We visited for lunch one day and what a beautiful setting. It is right across the street from the St. Croix River in downtown Hudson. The food was good and their menu has a lot of options. Our service was great and very quick. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Hudson.

Food was great and staff was very polite and service was proper. The waiter we had was very nice and made us feel welcomed. My wife and I went with family to have a little late lunch. We split brie cheese curds and the prime rib philly cheese steak. The rest of the family had a grilled turkey sandwich, a... More

We went for their Happy Hour, which was very nice. We had some walley bites and cheddar nuggets with our drinks. It was very nice. We didn't stay for dinner, as their prices were a little high. But, the happy hour was very nice.

We were looking for a place to eat with a view of the river and "found" this amazing restaurant. We arrived just a little after 4 on a gorgeous Friday afternoon and were immediately seated on the large deck in the "dining" section - the happy hour section was already packed! (and the dinner rush started right after we were... More

This restaurant has a great location and is easy to get to (parking requires quarters due to meters!) No wait. Meals were very well proportioned and delicious. Strawberry shortcake dessert was amazing!

We arrived at the restaurant a little after one in the afternoon thinking that we would get right in. It was a beautiful day, and this restaurant has a very large deck seating area. They were still quite busy, so we waited only about 10 minutes to get a table on the front deck that overlooks the park and river.... More

The restaurant patio is just across the street from the river, with a view of the park. There was a wait for the patio, so we sat inside. Service was good, and my husband said it was the best walleye he'd had. My salad was fresh and tasty. Reservations for the patio recommended on the weekends to avoid a wait.

This usually our 'go to' restaurant to bring guests or for just a good meal. Food, service and atmosphere are typically very good EXCEPT last evening which was very disappointing. We had reservations and although there appeared to be plenty of open tables inside the restaurant, we were seated at a table literally right next to the open kitchen. It... More

Dinner and Drinks on the patio at Pier 500 was fantastic. The Bartender was extremely friendly. You must order the Brie Cheese Curds, they are to die for.
