We enjoyed a delicious lunch in a quiet booth next to the fireplace. A little more space from the server would have been appreciated, but the food was delivered timely and beautifully presented. We ordered dinner and dessert to go. The banana cream pie was amazing; we savored it over several meals.

Brunch was AMAZING! We had the walleye Benedict & ham n cheese omelet, along with some fun seasonal cocktails that were so good and so fun (gingerbread eggnog martini & a gingerbread bourbon cocktail)!
Our server (Amy?) was so kind and helpful! She seemed genuinely happy to be there and I love to see that!!!

Another excellent visit to Pier 500. Always top-notch service and great food! The one minor suggestion I would make is to eliminate the fluorescent-toned lighting in the main dining area. The cold, blue light seems out of place with the warm fireplace and decor.

The food and the service were excellent. We ate inside as it was cold outside, and social distancing was observed. We had a great visit with local friends and would recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking great and varied comfort food.

Pier 500 continues to exceed expectations. I've been dining here for 10 years and haven't had a bad experience yet. Great food and great service. They are doing a tremendous job in terms of keeping everyone safe and socially distanced. These are tough times. If any restaurant is going to make it through this, it's Pier 500. Way to go everyone!

Had the sirloin and walleye meal. Great steak, crusted walleye was a little dry, ask them to make sure to not over cook it wasnt many people there that night so it's all about timing. Cheesy hashbrowns...omg. amazing. Must have had Alfredo sauce in it. It was white.
We will definitely be going there at least every other month....on a budget

Overall, I would highly recommend it.

The food was good although expensive & salads & bread were extra. It was cold when we were there. No fun sitting & eating in a cold restaurant even with a fireplace.
