Description: We are a gathering place for friends and family, essence of hospitality in casual, comfortable surroundings. We create made from scratch dishes and cocktails with an incredible view of the Saint Croix River from being seated either inside our beautiful restaurant with the wood-fired rotisserie or outside on our patio with a full service bar.

My wife and I enjoyed lunch here during the 2013 BritFest car show we were attending nearby. Located near the river, with somewhat scenic views. The restaurant offers indoor or outdoor patio seating. An upscale menu with food that you would not find everywhere, some strange offerings, but some good also. The food was good, a little pricey. Service was not real great; waitress did not seem very happy to be working there, but she did the job. We may or may not return. If you're looking for something different as far as a menu goes, give this place a try. Lunch for the two of us was around $40.

This place is hoppin! The parking lot was packed and we were concerned about getting a table, but we were seated immediately without a reservation on a Saturday night! The food was delish! My husband had the chicken ceasar salad and blackened salmon with rice; he said it was quite possibly the best salmon he's ever had! I had the bruschetta chicken and it was also excellent! The portions were large ~ my plate could've fed three people! Service was excellent! Can't speak for the views as it was late when we arrived. We will definitely go again when we're in the area.

Our first night out in Hudson and Pier 500 did not disappoint. A very busy place but service was good and food excellent AND their bread comes with the meal unlike The Nova Wine Bar, which we discovered the following evening!

Patio dining with a great view of the SCR. Menu selection included many entrees as well as salads and sandwiches. I chose the raspberry, walnut and chicken salad which was light and refreshing. Small amount of dressing which was perfect. My husband had the queen cut prime rib which was perfectly cooked with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans. The couple with us chose the walleye which was lightly crusted, excellent to taste. All in all we had a great meal and will likely return. We got there about 5:00 so it wasn't very crowded outside but by the time we left - 6:30 the tables were all full as well as inside. Our waiter was outstanding - friendly, humorous but not overbearing.
