Good food in a small venue. The burgers are a must and the homemade fries are worth the upgrade. You may need to wait for a table.

Excellent bar food and service. This is our absolute favorite bar/pub as the food is always good and staff interacts on a personal basis. Their burgers, fries, buffalo wings, pulled pork, great white hope sandwiches are a must to try if you dine there. Beer is always cold with a good selection. Best bloody Mary's in Hudson!!!

While Hudson has managed to gain several recommendable places to eat, the first recommendation out of my mouth is always Barker's. Their burgers and chicken sandwiches are first rate and I can honestly say over the dozens and dozens of times over a dozen years that I have gone there, only once was the food not exactly right, and our...

We sat at the bar because last time we were here we found it fun to watch the guys cook food, as the kitchen is behind the left side of the bar. One guy goes full out, is on top of things, and makes the best Buffalo wings. I enjoyed mine a lot. My husband got a BLT, but was... More

Good atmosphere, great draft beer selection, very good food, excellent service. Very nice side salads. Steak tips were very tender and flavorful, although a little heavy on the cumin. Balsamic carrots were so good I'm going to try to make at home. Fresh cut fries a real bonus. Peanut butter cup cheesecake is a must!

There were so many interesting places to eat in Hudson. It was hard to choose. We flipped a coin and chose Barker's. The waitress was very cool, very friendly, and very open about where to eat and what was best at the places she had been to eat. She obviously liked Barker's the best, and my black and bleu burger...

Went to midweek noonish lunch recently with a friend. Was greated by pleasant bartender who seated us in a booth nearby. Friendly server took our order after answering our questions about the salads. I enjoyed a salad titled "Grilled Heart of Romain" which was a full head of romain lettuce carefully basted with a tasty sauce and then lightly grilled... More

Go to lunch here every few weeks. The food is consistently very good and service is the best in town. Great for a casual business lunch.

We dined at Barker's with another couple on a Saturday night. We expected a wait. They have a texting system for their wait list, so instead of waiting in the crowded bar, we went to another crowded, but bigger bar down the street to grab a pre-dinner drink. The wait was about 30 minutes, but it flew. We were seated... More
