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. 😍

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.

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.
