    Our experience eating at Pier 500 is always good. This time there were two things missed by the kitchen. But our waiter was super helpful, and the manager apologized. We don't usually have issues. But the best was how very excellent the customer service was to make up for the missteps in the kitchen. We were impressed and grateful!

    Hostess issue in seating - we arrived with a handicapped person and we were walked to the end of building. We had a reservation and requested seating near the fireplace - instead the employee walked my seriously handicapped friend to the end of the room. I was parking the car. When I came in we got moved. I feel like the hostess/waitress should have been more intuitive to my friends' needs.

    My Mom and I had a fun Friday night dinner at Pier 500. We were seated near the fireplace and it was lovely. I had the Mediterranean pasta with shrimp, which was delicious. My Mom had the adult mac and cheese, which she enjoyed as well. Our appetizer was the deviled eggs and shrimp, delicious and salty. They had a special on wine bottles to make room for new inventory, so I tried a cabernet and our server corked it back up for us before leaving. Our service was great and ambience was excellent. I always recommend eating here.

    The steak salad was below expectations. The prime rib was thinly cut (1/2") and too much fat and grilled like a steak. This cut of meat was not prepared in the traditional prime rib manner.

    One member in our party ordered a healthy bowl and the chicken was tough. She did not want to create a stir by sending it back even though we urged her to. She doesn't like to complain. I think the chef should be made aware. The other meals ordered were very good.

    My chicken sandwich was subpar. It was bland and dry. I was disappointed. I’ve had a number of good meals here, but this will be something I never order again. My son liked, not loved, his burger. My wife and daughter enjoyed their pasta dishes. The chicken meatball appetizers are excellent. Our server Rachel was pleasant. They did bring ice cream for my daughter on her birthday.

    We had asked for a fireplace table. They we happy to seat us there, however, it was site wise looking at the food service area. We politely asked for somewhere different, and was escorted to a wonderful, very private table. Our server was excellent. She allowed us to sip on our drinks awhile, before we ordered. The food was very tasty, and it was presented beautifully. Plus a great birthday desert. A side point: we thought the chocolate cake might be complementary, after we said we were celebrating an 80th birthday.

    We had the walleye and the chicken pot pie. The walleye's accompaniment of wild rice was exceptional. Gwen was out server and she was lovely and attentive. I commented to my spouse how it always smells like delicious food in the dining area. You will be surprised to hear that is not always the case at other restaurants. WE had the green bean appetizer (OM Gosh). Wish you would have the cauliflower app that you have at Tavern 4-5 in EP.

    Perfect place to look out the window at the lake. Service was exceptional. Provided everything we asked for and more. The smoked gouda nachos are the best. Some fun drinks like basil gimlet and a special old fashioned. Worth the drive if you live in the Twin Cities!
