Pier 500 Ratings and Reviews
This was my first time dining at Pier 500 and I will definitely be going back! Our water glasses were never empty and the service was very fast. The rotisserie chicken and filet mignon were spectacular as were the sides. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the friendly staff!
My Favorite Restaurant!
If you want fine dining with pleasant waitstaff and a high-quality atmosphere, I recommend Pier 500! My fiancé and I go here when we are in town for a special occasion and enjoy eating inside and out on the patio. If you want dinner, make reservations or get there around 5, or else it gets packed after that for a while with a longer wait. Salt and Vinegar fries are my favorite!
My family has enjoyed many wonderful meals at Pier 500. However, this Easter dinner might possibly be my all time favorite. Our food was delicious. The portions were more than we could eat, food was delicious and our server Pete was great. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Never ending fabulous platters of food that kept 5 young men happy! No one left hungry and everything tasted very good. We will return for the Sunday brunch again.
GEM OF HUDSON
This place has such an amazing wine list! The food is beyond words. The Brunch is AMAZING! The service is exceptional, knowledgeable and friendly. GREAT outdoor seating over looking the River, but if you want a seat outside call for reservations or show up early! seats go quickly in the warmer months.
Keep going back@
This place is so wonderfull. In a hurry - you got it. Want to sit and relax - you got that too. Very accommodating.

Awesome food and atmosphere!! Salmon and prime rib were fantastic!
Great Service! Great View! Disappointing Food.
Our Server was pleasant and helpful, even the snow looked pretty against the river view. I ordered the eggs Benedict...the whites were still runny. Yuk! The herbed hashbrowns were interesting, but not good. I enjoyed the coffee and the company, but the quality control needs an upgrade.
Hopping place on a Friday night
We went on a Friday night with our family, and even though we had a reservation, we had to wait almost 15 minutes for a table, while other people who walked in after us got seated right away. It's a hopping bar scene, but there were also several families with kids dining there. Our waitress was very nice and attentive, considering it was a busy night. The food was o.k.- standard mid-west fare, but nothing to rave about. We were disappointed that the soup of the day was sold out, and the menu had only a few seafood & vegetarian options (it was a Friday during Lent, so we couldn't eat meat). We have been to Pier 500 before, and this visit was not up to par with our previous visits. I have to add, during the warmer weather, the outside patio is lovely, as is the view of the St. Croix.

Great waitress when we were seated but horrible service at the bar there were 3 people working behind the bar & we were seated at the bar & it took 10mins for a bartender to greet us & in addition the 2 women that were bartending were never friendly/nice to us.
We had a delayed Valentine's day observation and chose this location for its closeness to home and to the St. Croix river. Our meals were delivered in a timely fashion and cooked properly. The server was wonderful and she did a fine job in describing what she was serving.
We celebrated my sister's birthday with a few of our gal pals and had a delicious meal. The only down side was a rough spot on the bottom edge of the table that snagged the front my brand new rayon/crepe tunic. The manager was very apologetic and credited my meal, however, I now have a top that I need to try to repair. Overall we were all very happy with our girls night out and will most definitely visit again!
Food is spectacular. Always stands on its own merits without the chefs trying to byild up an image of the food. The food stands on its own flavorful merits without trying to "foodie" it up.
Great Date Night
Our server was great. He answered questions about the menu selections and ingredients and helped convince a picky guest to order two items he was unsure about and he loved them both. They accommodated my request on the Open Table reservation for a table by the fireplace.
The food was wonderful and so was the service. We will definitely be back.
Great service, Great food, Great Ambience! We will most definitely go back again soon

The food was spectacular- my husband wants to go back just for the wild rice soup. It was a little noisy, but so pretty inside. We'll definitely be back in the summer to sit on the patio.
Food came very quickly, service was great. Very busy night.reservations got us seated promptly.
Fantastic food; great sides, but the focus was the perfectly cooked meat entrees.

The prices were great! I can't believe we had that much good food for that little. Can't wait to come back in the summer to sit outside!
I've always enjoyed my dining here
Outstanding server -- great sense of humor and uber-friendly!
Always a great feel and vibe
Highly recommend for any occasion. Great food and beverage selections. Live music on Thursday nights's.
I proposed to my girlfriend one year ago here
I really enjoyed the hospitality and upbeat and pleasant staff they made our dining more enjoyable. I proposed to my girlfriend one year ago here. They staff greeted us once again with warm smiles. This is going to be our romantic getaway for years to come. Thank you Pier 500 for all that your wonderful staff does and did for us. We drive 57 miles to have more wonderful memories to charish, I'm very happy that we had the opportunity to share them with you. God bless you and all the great staff. Until next time. Thankf you.

I was pleased that they helped me to surprise my son a sundae for his birthday as I did requested online it worked this year.. Last year I did requested it but it didn't work.. The food and everything was good Thank you
As always, nice
We met up with family from The Cities for lunch. Hudson is a nice town for food, and Pier 500 is our favorite place to meet. The menu is unique and the food well prepared. As always, out service was attentive.
Over prices for the quality of food.
Service was good food was good, but paid the same price I pay in the cities for great.
Good food but....
Food was fine. Our waitress was great. The problem with Pier 500 is that the bar is very small and there is really no where to sit and wait for your table. They are losing money because most of the people waiting (including us) could not get a drink. They have a room full of games that no one was using. Why not extend the bar and make some money?
flavors were amazing. the waiter, even more amazing. he knew it all and he was very descriptive and you could tell he loved his job. would def visit there again try the asian chicken salad, any of the veggie bowls, and try the donut bread pudding! some of our favorites!
Had the pork chops from the woodfire grill and they were perfect!
We only make it to Hudson a couple times a year and love coming here. We love the thin crispy fries, we love the prime rib, the walleye bites and the banana cream pie dessert! It can be a little loud if you are out in an open area by a large group, but if you are in a booth it is nice and quiet. Really love this place and the value for the price is good.
Great glutn sensitive options
The nachos and banana cream pie -without crust are fantastic

As usual, the food and atmosphere were great! A great place for lunch.
Wonderful spot for girls night!
My girlfriends and I met at Pier 500 for Happy Hour and dinner. My friends were introduced to your Kinky Martini (yummy and just $5 during happy hour!). Our dinner and service were wonderful, as always. Pier 500 is our gang's go-to spot for drinks and dinner. Thanks to everyone for another great experience!
Great meeting place with special friends
My wife and I and special friends have met at pier 500 several times. Our experiences have always been great. The food and service has always been excellent whether on a busy night or slow night (in the middle of the winter) always consistent.

Blackened Salmon is terrific! Brie cheese curds and Sezuan beans are great appetizers. Banana cream pie for dessert - a modern version like you've never tasted before! Fun birthday spot with friends. Downtown Hudson can't be beat!
Food is always excellent.
I'm not a big steak fan, but their steaks are amazing. Tender, tasty and clearly prepared by someone with chef training. The surrounding parts of the meal are always fitting and well presented. Never had a bad meal. There is a bar inside and it can get a bit noisy. Not enough to be bothersome, but if you're looking for quiet, this ain't it. Outdoor patio is great in warm weather. Nice view of the St. Croix river.
