Just finished a great lunch at Pier 500, setting is beautiful right on the water. Thanks to Nick (our server) our lunch was perfect he made great suggestions. Food was delicious. Will definitely be back. Easy to find right off 94.

This is an update to a past review about a visit that didn't go so well. Management had contacted me through TripAdvisor to make an offer that would get us back in the door. Well, we didn't take respond about that offer, but we did go back and give them another chance. Yesterday, my wife and I took our four... More

Pier 500 never disappoints...except when you have to wait a long time to get in because of its popularity! A great location with a view of the St. Croix River makes it the perfect spot to dine outdoors in the summer. In the colder months the indoor seating provides a cozy spot to dine by the fireplace. Either way the... More

We visit Pier 500 frequently, and have had a few dinners there on special occasions. The food is always very good, but I had to provide this review because this year's dinner was awesome. We ordered the walley and the sea bass, and everything was outstanding. The sea bass was perfectly seasoned and literally melted in my mouth. Everything else... More

We dinned here for our one year anniversary and had a lovely time. We didn't have a reservation but were seated at an intimate table for two next to the fireplace, which made for wonder ambience and blocked our view of the kitchen. The service was excellent and the food is fantastic. The Brie cheese curds are divine! I had... More

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

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.
