I've been to pier several times, each experience being very similar. The food has always been good albeit expensive. You will pay a couple dollars more for the same glass of wine you can get at other restaurants nearby for instance. The view is great also.... Just across the street from the river park. I really enjoy the salmon salad.... More

We stopped here for a birthday lunch on our way to Willow River State Park and the food and service was excellent. We were seated immediately and our server was table side pretty quickly. We ordered the Walleye Bites for an appetizer as Pier 500 is known for their fish and they were pretty good but not the best I... More

This is my second review for Pier 500. I always come here when visiting my bra and I have always been very pleased. This last time it just wasn't the same. The service was terrible and the portions were small. An example of this was the half cup of a cup of the soup that was served to us. We... More

We came here on Father's Day. The website looked like they did not take reservations but when we arrived the first question asked was if we had reservations. The wait was going to be 45-60 minutes but while we were standing there someone canceled so we did not have to wait long. After being seated we waited awhile until a... More

So, we are returning from the Twin Cities and want breakfast. We could have stayed on the interstate and found a decent chain, but NO, i wanted to explore downtown Hudson. And we come across this place. It was Sunday morning so they had an unending brunch for 16 bucks, but we weren't that hungry(Mimosas for 99 cents). I had... More

My wife and I decided at the last minute to try Pier 500 for a light dinner on a beautiful Memorial Day. The weather was sunny and the view from the deck was a relief from the MN winter. The deck had a 30-minute wait which gave us a good excuse to take to the outdoor bar. Service throughout the... More

The patio overlooks the St. Croix river and offers a great view while enjoying drinks and dinner. Good food and nice variety. Great brunch menu too!

Our anniversary dinner was a disappointment. My husband's steak was OK but my scallops were not. When I received my dinner, there were 3 scallops slightly larger than a quarter and less than 1/2 inch thick. I think they cut 1 scallop into 3 pieces. I asked to sub the wild rice that came with the meal for the cheaper... More

We took some friends here for lunch to celebrate a birthday and it was a great choice. I did make a reservation and we were seated at the exact type of table I requested. The service was fantastic. One had the mile high Reuben and it was one of the best he's had, loaded with corned beef. Two of us... More

I ate inside because it was fairly windy out. Nice selection on the menu, along with discounted "Happy Hour" prices on certain items. Good food at decent prices. The staff was friendly. I would definitely consider eating here again if I was in Hudson again.
