Maybe it was what we ordered, it was good but average. This place used to be outstanding for food.
I really enjoyed this restaurant and would definitely come back. The food was delicious and our server was extremely nice. I got a martini that was cucumber infused (forget the name) and I recommend it! So delicious!
Service was excellent.
I had to make a reservation for 3:15, as all other were taken but there was only one other couple in the restaurant- except for MANY employees. So, no ambience to speak of.
We had a nice time and the food was good.
Just really disappointed in the reservation process.
Lovely waitress and great food, once again. Pier 500 never disappoints.
Took a motorcycle ride there it was a great experience!
Great food, fast service, safe environment!
Our server was awesome! She was very courteous and helpful. I loved the Mediterranean pasta and I added grilled shrimp. I also had the key lime pie which was amazing!
Service was on point and the food was amazing. Highly recommend.
Wonderful food, views of the river and service. Will definitely go back.
Need a better wine list. Add some cheap French or Italian wines to balance it out.
Great Service, very accommodating even with the COVID restrictions for small celebration of 6 people. Thanks!
Very disappointing food. Overcooked salmon and limp lettuce. Walleye sandwich very diminished from former visits. Won’t go back. Had enjoyed Pier 500 for many years. A big loss.
Great COVID practices! Was able to get a reservation to celebrate a Birthday in the family and had a fantastic time. Everything was amazing and the banana cream pie was life altering
Staff was awesome, food was delicious, view of river was amazing. Highly recommend
We had a great waiter who came around often enough, but wasn't bothersome. The food was EXCELLENT (as always). We tried a few dishes that were new to us- the cheese curd appetizers, 12 oz. sirloin, and pan-fried walleye. Everything was so delicious and perfectly cooked.
My girlfriends and I had a very nice experience at Pier 500
Service, food and ambiance were outstanding.
Pier500 was a fantastic experience. Food was excellent service was fantastic even with Covid they are doing an awesome job and making you feel welcome
Terrific food and outstanding service, along with very nice views. Pretty large menu.
Sometimes restaurants with very nice views don't have good food or service. This place is an exception. Strongly recommended.
Great place for a birthday celebration. The patio, with views of the water, was just perfect.
My wife and I really enjoy Pier 500. It is our favorite place to celebrate family events
Had to wait after our food was serviced for over 5 mins for someone to check In with us to get silverware but other then that all was good.
We sat on the patio. Tables spaced apart. Food and service was excellent.
Consistently good food and service. Great location with a wonderful patio.
Lovely location- great service- good food!
Met family members here to catch up and just "get out" during this crazy C-19 time. Chose Hudson based on location- it was a mid-point for all of us. Chose Pier 500 as it had outdoor dining and was taking Covid precautions seriously. (Several of us have health conditions of concern) We had to eat inside as we were too large a group for the patio restrictions but were seated by ourselves in a low traffic area. Was very much appreciated.
We all ordered different items- sandwiches, salads, fish tacos, and even a Healthy Bowl. Food arrived promptly, was at temperature, and attractively presented. We were a party of 6- couldn't sit on the patio, so we walked across the street to the park and sat at a picnic table to visit further. The restaurant was a perfect location. (Just wished we could have taken a drink to go)
Our only glitch - which has nothing to do with the restaurant- is that we did not realize so much of the "on-street" parking is also metered with those little electronic pay-stations. Just know that basically anywhere within walking distance of this place is pay for parking....
Having a late lunch at Pier 500 was like a mini-vacation.
What a treat these days to be served at a restaurant.
The setting is wonderful along the St. Croix River. We were seated inside since we had a reservation. That was fine since it was a hot afternoon. The servers were responsive and courteous. We appreciated the “young adult” menu for 11-17 year olds. Never seen that before but perfect in between options.
The food was delicious and the chocolate cake and key lime pie were amazing!
Highlight of our week!
Outstanding, food and service as always! Look forward to our next meal there!
Great service, health conscious, able to cater to my gluten, corn and diary allergies.
The food was great..the service was wonderful... the food came quickly.. and it was. Nice and quiet
We had a great meal at Pier 500 on July 11th. There were six of us and we had a great table near the window, so you could easily see the river. My sisters were visiting from out of town and had wanted to eat someplace near the river and this worked perfect. The person who waited on us was outstanding. She stopped by the right amounts of times, was very professional and friendly. The restaurant also did a great job with the social distancing of tables. The food was also great! Overall it was a great night out and I would definitely return again.
This was the second time I went to Pier 500. The first time was great! This time the service was very disappointing. I ordered food and it was incorrect, we never got a drink refill until the end of our meal. The server avoided us as much as possible. Took a very long time to even pay. The food has been wonderful. It can get a bit loud as it’s on a Main Street but overall it was a reasonable experience albeit service.
The food was incredible and our server was great. She was very on top of things and super nice.
Food was really good. I got the burger with habanero peach sauce and it was good but spicier than the "zesty" the waiter indicated. The patio was awesome and they did a good job of keeping tables 6 feet apart. The waiter was great.
Very healthy from the virus. Good food friendly staff and pleasant staff. All the staff wore face masks.
Awesome lunch dining experience. Would have liked to have been outside, but didn't have time to wait. Food, service, and accommodations (including the sense of cleanliness) were outstanding! I gave 4 stars for 'Ambience" due to changes we've had to endure because of Covid...no other establishment that I can think of would get any higher than this!
Great ambiance, good social distancing. Good food and excellent service by Jack. Will go back and try patio.
Awesome staff and great food!
The food was fabulous, we had an excellent server and the view was great!
Very disappointed. Food was too salty the garlic mashed potatoes had no garlic. The Parmesan cheese encrusted broccoli looked like someone put shaker cheese on it. They did not clean the walleye. Skin was left on, then encrusted and fried. Horrible fish taste. This was our anniversary dinner and was a huge disappointment. I asked for a nice table as it was our anniversary and we were sat by the kitchen. As we were walking in a couple walking by warned us that there were better restaurants and not to waste our time. For the amount it cost to have dinner here, it was certainly NOT worth it. Our waitress was very kind, but slow and not attentive. We will not be going back any time soon.
Service was outstanding. Food was great. View was awesome.
