Tried clam chowder with red broth base; was excellent. Naked tenders, Cajun style, definitely good, and the half-basket of fries is rough for two. Great service and food.

My wife and I have been going to Barkers for many years and they have never let us down. I have not had one bad meal in at least 50 visits. Everything is top notch and cooked to order. This place is a can't miss place

We enjoyed another fine dinner at Barkers. The servers are all excellent. My husband ordered the bacon cheeseburger and fries and has never been disappointed. I enjoyed the louisiana chicken which was spicy and excellent. Our friends ordered bison burgers as well and also enjoyed theirs.

I primarily go to Barker's for the fries. They are good warm and cold! I usually get a burger. The side salads are good, too.

I had the Mexican Poorboy sandwich with smoked pork shoulder. It was dang good! The bread is great and the pork had good flavor without overpowering the rest of the flavors.

We stopped in Hudson on our way to mid-MN. We decided to stop in Hudson as a lay over. Best thing we could have done. Went to Barkers Bar and Grill for dinner. Great craft brews and very tasty fish fry (yes, I'm from Wisconsin and this matters!) Hubby had Cajun shrimp special. All the food was delish! Stop here,... More

This is our go-to restaurant in Hudson. Always excellent food -- fresh, not rewarmed frozen. The handcut fries are so tasty. We always share a basket with whatever else we get. Also try the Grilled Romaine Chicken or the Boneless Chicken Strips. Oh, and then there are the Bison Burgers! Yum!

Always outstanding food. They also have a good selection of local craft beers. The wait staff was busy but very helpful and friendly. One of our favorites in Hudson.
