Three of us visited Barker's for lunch. We arrived during what we would expect to be the lunch rush, but were able to select our seat from all of the possible options. There are booths, high-top tables, and typical style tables. We selected a typical 4-top on the porch at the rear. We had a nice view of the alley,... More

Recently ate at Barker's and came away with a mixed perception. The entrees like beef tenderloins were great, and sandwiches and Barker's fries were very good. Cheese curds were especially poor given that so many places in Wisconsin make them so well, batter was not fully cooked and flavor was poor (maybe cooked too fast?). Bizarre twist: menu has a...

And I mean GREAT service. Without the great service I would be hard pressed to give more than an average, but my family would disagree. We arrived on a busy Saturday evening. We were told that there would be about a 20-25 minute wait for our family of four, but we were able to find a few spots at the... More

We stopped in for a Saturday lunch and were seated right away. My daughter had the ahi yellow fin tuna steak sandwich and she loved it. I had a salad and bowl of soup, both delicious, and more than enough to eat for lunch. I also had a flight of unique beer, which I thoroughly enjoyed - only $6 for... More

My hubby & I have been going to Barkers Bar & Grill as our favorite neighborhood bar for 20 years! We go for their bison burgers, which are always cooked to perfection! If you haven't tried Barkers in downtown Hudson, WI you simply must. Know that there's a wait during peak dining hours on weekends, but the wait is always... More

Barkers takes a regular hamburger and makes it impressive. I really don't know what they do but it is always juicy and just seems to melt in your mouth. I've never had a bad burger there.

Holy Cow.....I didn't want to leave...but I was full! My wife and I, along with a friend, stopped in on Halloween night for some food before heading out to Halloween parties. Our friend recommended the spicy wings...(ordered #8 heat)...tossed w/fresh garlic. Those were some of the best wings I've had in a long time! I'm a spicy guy...so I will... More

I loved my Bison Burger w fries. It was cooked perfect and had great flavor and the BBQ sauce w smoky cheddar were a perfect match. The hand cut fries were really good and caramelized to a nice brown. My Bloody Mary was decent but the green olives were far from green...not that I eat them but they were not... More

Best bartender made drinks in town! Food is pretty good too. I like the popcorn while I wait for my drink, you get your own. The menu needs a shrimp item, like shrimp cocktail though.
