Barker's Bar & Grill: Popular Hudson eatery says cheers to 25 years

Barker's owner Pete Foster prides himself on his restaurant's high standards for food quality, customer service and cleanliness.

Barker’s Bar & Grill, 431 Second St., is celebrating its 25th anniversary with “Cheers to 25 Years” Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 15-17. Throughout that weekend, customers will be offered selected entrees at their original 1988 prices and select craft beers at two and three dollars a pint.

Discounted craft beers include a lineup of local Rush River Brewing Co. favorites and also customized selections specifically for Barker’s including Unforgiven Amber Ale, Minion IPA, Lyndale Brown-Green Tea & Pomegranate Infused and Lost Arrow Porter-Ancho & Chipotle Infused.

Customers also have a chance to win prizes including three sets of front row Minnesota Wild Tickets, Barker’s custom-distilled micro blend “Angels’ Envy” bourbon whiskey and dozens of additional items.

With a major renovation completed just last month, Barker’s owner Pete Foster said the restaurant is continuously thinking of its customer and making improvements for the next 25 years and beyond.

“This important milestone would not be possible without our customers,” said Foster. “We are using this weekend as an opportunity to show our appreciation for their loyalty over the many years.”

A fresh menu is set to roll out after the anniversary weekend on Nov. 18, introducing new culinary creations such as Smoked Green Chile Queso, Beef Tenderloin Tips and El Diablo Chicken.

Barker’s is famous for its wide variety of imported and microbrew craft selections, attracting customers from the Twin Cities region and western Wisconsin. Its upbeat atmosphere also makes it an ideal stop for people looking for a fun meal with family or friends.

“Barker’s high standards for food quality, customer service and cleanliness make it a staple in the Twin Cities region for both food and beverage,” said Foster. “Our employees’ dedication to these principles is the reason we continue to be successful.”
