Pier 500 [Hudson, WI]

I searched the Board and did not find any comments or reviews. Have you been? Is this a good place for a casual dinner for a group of six friends (two foodies...) ? Anything you might recommend on the menu? The soups look nice, and it seems several items create a bit of interest for me.

      Cigars usually denote a savory pastry filled with something (think flautas, but stuffed afterward). It was big a couple years ago.

        Not in Pier 500's case. They are simply walleye fingers/sticks/etc. Pier 500 is packed every evening during the summer (the location is the best in Hudson/right on St. Croix River). Personally, their food doesn't do a lot for me and if I'm in downtown Hudson I'm eating at San Pedro Cafe, Barkers, or Agave Kitchen over Pier 500. San Pedro is my favorite and they have great weekend specials.

          Thanks for the recommendation! After I got over the shock of seeing chips and salsa for $9.95 (really?) the rest of the menu looked good. Except that I have a thing about ".95" pricing. Kind of silly, I think.
