It's right on the water! IT was too cold to sit outside but the inside atmosphere is really alive! Our server was the best! His recommendations were spot on! Our food was fun and delicious. Would not recommend the Rueben as we like actual meat shaved off and this was like deli meat with some fat. Flat bread awesome as... More

Great food, great service. Their steak salad is amazing, I highly recommend it. A lovely place to eat lunch or brunch on the patio next to the St. Croix river in Hudson in the warmer months. Call ahead for reservations because it's a very popular place to eat.

We hit the all day Sunday happy hour, and it was unseasonably warm so they opened up the deck. Amazing! Loved the brie curds and the chicken nachos.

We have been here a few times for dinner. Consistent in their food and service. I wouldn't say that I was overly excited Their chicken is signature dish and I would recommend it. Personally we haven't found it memorable but we did enjoy our meal and company. A solid choice for Hudson and great place to meet friends and family... More

If you desire a good walleye dinner, get the parmesan crusted walleye dinner at Pier 500. Alternatively, the walleye sandwich is good too (but if you want fries and coleslaw you will pay extra). Seating can be immediate or a wait...all depends on your arrival time and peak dinner times. Been going to this restaurant for years, and overall the... More

Pier 500 is the place we go when friends get together to celebrate an occasion or just get together for a night out. Love the inviting atmosphere. Food is reliable and delicious. My favorite is the PhillyBeef sandwich. I also love all the homemade desserts. There's usually delicious specials with trying. It gets very busy but is worth the wait.

I used open table tolreaeeve what I was told as the best restaurant in town. I travel for work so highly regard the local opinions. After waiting and watching multiple walk in customers get a table I inquired about my reservation that was 35 minutes overdue. The rude treatment by the staff was enough to cancel my reservation and leave.... More

Longtime customer of Pier 500. Been bringing my kids and extended family here since my kids were 2. Had relatives in town and noticed more than three empty tables on their patio. We were a party of 12, so perfect. Unfortunately, the couple in front of me checking in said they were meeting more adults and some kids were coming... More

Trip Dad Plus, Please accept my sincere apologies for the unacceptable experience you encountered at Pier 500. We are always more than happy to have families with children dine with us, to have one of our employees respond to you in the manner they did is totally unacceptable. We will certainly have a conversation with our hosts reminding them of... More

Beautiful patio, good food. I dream of the walleye sandwich and wild rice soup. Great burgers, drinks, and pasta, too. Watch for up charges though. Have had waitress suggest a menu substitution on more than one occasion without telling us it was an up charge. One of my dining out pet peeves.

This was a bit of a pricey lunch, but the food was wonderful, and I had enough left for more than one additional meal at home. I had the rotisserie chicken sandwich; it was the best, and even the cole slaw was very good. My friends enjoyed the roasted turkey and pork sandwiches as well. Good service also.
