Have eaten here a number of times over years. Excellent food and great service. It was a large group 12 people plus one 18 month old. We had a reservation and they did great. Wonderful service not rushed and they did well with the little one in group.

Pier 500 has a varied menu. Always something new and food is good. I think it is pricier than most places, When meeting with a group of eight it is a okay place to gather. I think they have improved the acoustics, so the visiting is easier. Usually the sound bounces off the ceiling but the other night it seemed... More

This is a very well designed establishment inside, has a very nice shaded patio for outdoor dining, and a partial view of the St. Croix River. All this adds up to a desirable location to enjoy a meal.The table service is very good and we have no complaints as to delivery and time. We did not have reservations on a... More

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.

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
