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

We were so sad that this place was so disappointing!! While the menu does look huge and has lots of good stuff on it, the food is simply not good - our sandwiches were so dry - and the chips tasted like they were old... The service was also lackluster - our server chatted most of the evening with the... More

Dear Globeteach, I'd like to apologize for your experience at Barker's Bar & Grill on Sunday, July 17. This is obviously not the quality of food or service that our guests have to come to expect when dining with us and I am so sorry. I'd love to have the chance to make this right with you, I was wondering... More

We've had several meals at Barker's and have never been disappointed. The food is delivered quickly, it's hot and tasty! Their staff always greets you with a smile and is interested as to how your day is/was. Wings are probably our favorite appetizer as they can make them as hot as you want, Great White Hope, burgers, Rueben, Pulled pork... More

Need a quick lunch or dinner in Hudson- try Barker's. I have west side friends who ride over to Hudson for Barker's. Great sandwiches, good selection of beer. Cozy place to eat.

We always have quite the delicious meal at Barker's. The food is high quality, the service is sweet (though slower), the atmosphere is great and the meal is top-notch- I highly recommend their Ahi Tuna or Bison Burger- you can't go wrong!

Staff has a GREAT customer service ethic. The servers actually say "thank you," not just "have a nice day," or "there you go." They say THANK YOU and are appreciative of your patronage. Someone is clearly training them well in customer service. The atmosphere is nice and inviting. Has an old-timey, hardwood floor, renovated vintage shop kinda vibe. The food... More

First time visiting this restaurant. Had a very good Crispin cider tallboy and a tasty smoky mountain burger with cheddar, red onion, delicious bacon, and pickle coins - I got mine without the bun to avoid the carbs and avoid feeling full. That was a wise move. I upgraded from the chips to the side salad. Of course we had... More

I have been to Barker's many times through the years and can say I have always had good meals here. This is a fun and popular restaurant. I usually get the reuben sandwich. It's a great place to try.

A group of us from work were looking for a place to go for lunch. I had never been to Barker's so we decided to go there last minute. The special was deep fried cod. 3 of us had it and we all really liked it. We will definitely be back!
