We ate at Barkers in Hudson again this year during annual trip to Wisconsin on the way from Minneapolis airport. Nice variety of selections and excellent service. Between two couples we had burger which was very good and great fries, two different salads topped with grilled chicken (big salad and tasty chicken) and beef tenderloin tips --everything was excellent. We... More

We ate here and had their new halibut Friday special. It was delicious and we also got drinks. I got a bloody and my husband and beer. Our waiter, Marty, absolutely made our experience memorable and makes us want to come back next time we're in town and took such great care of us! Couldn't ask for a better wait... More

Nice place with good atmosphere. The wings are the thing I look forward to, they did 2 Half orders in different flavors. How ever instead of being priced the same as a single whole ores they were a few bucks more. That threw me off a bit as the waitress didn't warn me on that

Their burgers and salads are great, service is good and I like the atmosphere of a nice home town bar. This is also good for kids and although it is a salad and sandwich place (at least that is all we have ever gotten) we never tire of it.

Went to Barker's for lunch and enjoyed it. To drink I had and enjoyed Rush River Unforgiven Amber Ale which went well with Barker’s Grilled Cheese (Swiss and smoky Cheddar cheeses combined with crisp hickory-smoked bacon and vine ripe tomato slices, served on grilled sourdough). The back room has a bit of a view of the St. Croix. The bar... More

Stopped here for lunch on a Friday at 11. Marty was our server, he was hilarious and excellent. We had Bloody Mary's, Leinenkugel's is the standard chaser (go figure) and chips with their homemade pico de gallo. Yum!! Our daughter ordered the kids chicken tenders and fries. She loved it!! My husband and I split the patty melt and fries,... More

We visit this place at least six times a year when we are in Hudson. It does not disappoint. The food is fairly priced (except for happy hour--the prices are definitely NOT a good deal, nor do they have much on their happy hour menu), the (very young) staff is attentive, most of the time, and the chefs do a...

Some friends invited us out for lunch here. Pleasant surprise!! Ate here years ago, but forgot what a great place it was!! Making it a regular stop from now on. Parking in downtown Hudson can be a bit frustrating, but lot's to do once finally parked. Loved the lamb burger!

My cousin and I drove from oakdale to hudson. Cute town. Barkers seem to have an energy/vibe of friendly and hometown feel. The staff was nice and the food fresh. I had the bison burger (raised locally). Very fresh. The waitress recommended to have the burger medium as well done may make the burger dry. Great recommendation! It was perfect.... More

I go to Barkers in the Hudson area when we are up there. Great menu and fast service. It gets a bit cramped up front when waiting for a table but once you are seated, all is good. I love the Buffalo Burger, and my wife loves the salads! Dont miss this spot in Hudson.... Beats the chain places by... More
