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

Food was good. however, the portion of my fiance's steak was smaller than shown, and the flavor was a little lacking. We have been to Pier numerous times, and this was the first time there was an issue.

I would highly recommend Pier 500 to a friend, I wish we could have experienced the Igloo area, but I made reseravations too late for Pier 500 to accomodate. Next time I'll know better! It was pretty noisy, but all in all the experience was great. Our waiter Edwardo (I think) was the best!!

The food is always excellent and the service was fantastic. It’s a little noisy but that’s to be expected on a Saturday night. Good hidden gem in Hudson. Highly recommend for anyone looking for good simple delicious food at good prices. Wish I had known the igloos were there ahead of time they looked fun! Will return soon

Reserved a table for Valentine's Day dinner. We were seated immediately and our waitress was very attentive and accommodating. Dinner was delicious and we didn't wait long for our meals to arrive. It was a great evening at Pier 500.

Walleye was overcooked, but still tasty. The prime rib was fantastic, and the prime rib stew served in a bread bowl was amazing!

Lunch was good in the past, figured we would try the brunch. Was disappointed to see the Sunday morning brunch had only a few options to pick from. For the price, there should be more choices. Of the brunches that we generally go to, we would not suggest this Sunday morning Brunch. It is not worth the price.

Had dinner at Pier 500 after friends gave me a few suggestions in Hudson. The waiter was very attentive and the food was fantastic. Everyone at our table raved about what they had. Now I will be recommending them.

Always a reliably good meal with good service. Parking is always an issue but that's a Hudson issue that 500 cannot solve allow.

Terrible experience tonight and we were spending time with our son before he returns to service. Food was cold, even my prime rib. Waitress was too scarce, only came to table 3 times all night. We were done with dinner before the waitress brought my wife’s wine. They were not understaffed, just poor service. My prime rib, potatoes and green beans were all cold. I took half the prime home to heat it up and eat there.
We will not go back to this restaurant. Very disappointed.

Service was excellent the food was excellent. I had a walleye with green beans and wild rice. It was very good and a generous portion. The food was fresh and well prepared. Green beans or fresh with a nice nap and well seasoned. The wall I was tender with a nice Parmesan crust on it. The wild rice was also very good with a few vegetables and not overcooked. It was a very enjoyable lunch.

Excellent food, and waiters who were just the right amount of attentive. We ordered an appetizer of the Brussels sprouts with honey (sooo good!) and our waiter noticed that it didn’t have the bacon on it. She came right back with another plate that had the whole dish on it.

Very good food & service. Only down side was being seated in bar. Just a little on the loud side. Holiday cocktails especially the Snowball is highly recommended
