I'd heard good things about Pier 500, but honestly, the food was only okay. The kitchen messed up my husband's order and it took forever to get another made. I was finished with my food before his came back. I felt bad for the waiter because it wasn't his fault. We still tipped our waiter well because his service was good, but I can't say we'll be back to the restaurant.

We were one of the 90% of cars in your parking lot that came over from MN. We made a reservation, and got seated right away.
Our waiter Mike was great! We found out he’s a fireman from MN. Helped us with what food to order! The food was delicious! Love your salt and vinegar fries!
Thank you for being our first meal out in 11 weeks!!

Pier 500 was very clean, all the staff wore masks at all times, which I did not find necessary. Our food was terrific, we each ordered different versions of the salad bowls!

The atmosphere was a low busy hum!

It was our first time out during this pandemic and we were excited to finally have a meal and cocktails in a restaurant again. We were very impressed with the staff and the procedures you put in place for social distancing. Our waitress was good, the food was good, and the ambience was good! This was not our first time to Pier 500 and we will be continuing to frequent your restaurant!

Great food and service. We had a group of 6 for a birthday celebration so having a confirmed reservation for inside was great! My daughter has a gluten sensitivity; they were very accommodating with a separate menu.
Felt safe because tables were spread out and all staff wore masks.

I felt safe at this restaurant and the food was top notch. When we entered there was hand sanitizer available and the servers, cooks, bartenders and hosts all wore masks. The bar seats and tables were spaced amply apart and each table and chairs were thoroughly sanitized between seatings. They also had paper menus that were thrown away after each use. If you are looking for a restaurant to venture back out to with great food and ambience, while still looking out for the safety of their employees and guests, this is the place to go.

We have had wonderful prime rib here in the past. It was first raw and when brought back it was well done. Thus we were disappointed. We also had a berry crisp which was unremarkable.
The Parmesan walleye that we had was quite good.

Pier 500 in Hudson, Wisconsin overlooks a beautiful park and the St Croix River. They have the most delicious food, delectable desserts and a great wine list! Staff and service is top notch. I highly recommend. You won't be disappointed.

We had reservations and we got sat at a tiny table for 2 when all the couples after us were seated at tables for 4.
The food was good, service was bad. We had to ask multiple times for a second drink and we split the table, I did the math for him and he still did it wrong.
I won’t return.

Our group ordered a variety of entrees and everyone was very satisfied with the presentation, the taste (loved the hash browns) and the reasonable cost. Atmosphere is pleasing and seating is comfortable.

We had a wonderful time.we first sat outside in the igloos and had drinks and apts. Then went inside and had a wonderful delicious meal. The wait staff was so friendly and helpful. We had a young guest with us that is very picky and they made her a nice meal. So she could have something special to eat.. it was my father in laws 81st birthday and they made it so special for him and for the rest of us also. Thanks Pier 500 for w wonderful time..

Fantastic all around. Food and drinks were wonderful. Dessert was huge and delicious! Staff were friendly and helpful. The place had a great "modern but cozy" vibe, even though it is quite large. Went there with husband and 13 yo son. Outdoor "igloos" were a delightful suprise. What a fun way to be "outdoors" in the winter - but you have to call ahead to reserve! Would definitely eat there again!!

Pier 500 has gotten better over the years. We haven't had dinner there in over two years due to inconsistent quality of the food. But I was pleasantly surprised. My walleye was perfect and my husband liked his prime rib. Thanks for improving! We'll be back!

Perfection most every time. Was sad to see the Gouda fondue off the menu. But roasted chicken was excellent. Bring back Blacken Salmon BLT. 😍
