We have been going to Barkers for at least 10 years. While they have excellent French fries I am a bit done on what you get for the price. $15 for a 6 oz bison burger is not a good value. You can get better...More

Four of us for business lunch. The special truffle burger was a bust. Asked for medium it was overlooked. The truffle oil was tasteless and the mushrooms inside were charred. The slim "home fry style fries" were undercooked and didn't taste good. The waitress had...More

Had the el Camino burger, nice kick to it. All 3 burgers we had were excellent. The glazed carrots are a great side! Draft beer choices were very good, nice selection of WI and MN regional brews. Service was also very good.

I selected this restaurant off Tripadvisor for a business dinner for a group of 6. They are slim on options for parties of 6 or more, and even though the staff was very helpful, we were initially crowded into a high top for 5 (the...More

I met a few friends at Barker's for dinner. It's a classic with over 20 years of history in Hudson. The place isn't huge, the food is good, and it doesn't have the pretentiousness of Pier 500 or the rowdiness of Dick's. I enjoyed the...More
