Bread Pudding to Die For!

I don’t give an excellent rating easily but this one place really earned it! Barker’s has been around since 1988 and it’s easy to see how they have achieved that kind of longevity. And why they have such a loyal local following. The food is excellent, there’s an abundant draft beer selection... read more

I recently visited here with my boyfriend and his family for his birthday. It took forever for a server to get to our attention but he was nice throughout the visit. We were seated right in the middle of everything and our table was barely big enough for all of us so we felt kind of in the way. The... More

Met our family in hudson for lunch. Decent sandwiches, although I wish they were fresher. I had a simple turkey sandwich and others in the group had hamburgers and grilled cheese. Good place for a drink when passing through.

Great place to get a burger and a beer! They have this grilled heart of romaine salad that is one of the best salads I've ever had. Their fries are awesome too! Fast friendly service - what more could you ask for?

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
