We are a gathering place for friends and family, essence of hospitality in casual, comfortable surroundings. We create made from scratch dishes and cocktails with an incredible view of the Saint Croix River from being seated either inside our beautiful restaurant with the wood-fired rotisserie or outside on our patio with a full service bar.

Wonderful food and service

Had a great dinner starting with the perfect old fashioneds at the bar. Had the Brie curds which were excellent with the cranberry ketchup. We had the steak and lake and cod which were both excellent. Very attentive service and great atmosphere.

The food is always very good at Pier - it can get really busy during the summer but it's a great lunch location any time of the year. Their rotisserie chicken is fantastic!

A large group of us went to celebrate a friend's birthday on a Friday night. We were accommodated very quickly and offered drinks right away upon sitting. I ordered the salmon healthy bowl and my husband had the cheese burger. Both of our dinners were very good. Our waitress (Kim, I believe) was very attentive and never seemed rushed. She... More

Great French onion soup! Wine selection is extensive, staff is knowledgeable, and the cuisine is some of the better in and around Hudson.

Been here a few times and the past, and recently. Each time, I have NEVER disappointed with the food. Pleasant atmosphere. Can be busy at times, but that tells you that it is good!

Visited Pier 500 with a friend for dinner. The service was great and the food was good. High quality ingredients and good flavor but the price was high for what you get. The atmosphere is very nice and I would visit again to dine on the patio.

We made a trip to the fun Hudson area and were very delighted by our excellent meal at Pier 500. I had lobster grilled with Havarti cheese and it was scrumptious. My husband ordered a rib eye, dip sandwich and it was just as great. Service was very friendly and we will definitely return. It was worth the trip. We... More
