lovely setting

I loved the vibe. I think the Joint was short stuffed during our visit but the waitress assigned to us was very much friendly and helpful.

Went to Hudsons for a birthday lunch with a big group and were not happy with the table they had booked for us, due to the fact that the two little babies that were with us would be in the sun. theu waitress was so helpful to get us an alternative table. The waitresses are very friendly and helpful. The... More

Average burgers, insipid fries and dreadful service. 40 minute wait for two burgers, no offer of further beverages and no explanation regarding the delay. The waitress also messed up the order of the table next to us, so they waited even longer than we did. The place clearly has no management.

Good food, pleasant, fast service but still a burger joint attracting a youngish crowd (students) and hence a bit noisy but definitely bearable (and worth it).

Next to The Dog's Bollocks, this has to be a seriously terrific burger joint! The service is great and the burgers are made just right... not dried out and needing to be revived with tons of some sauce or other!!! Thanks for a great experience.

This place used to be my favourite for after work drinks and watching rugby, bit lately been greatly deteriorating. Waiters are TERRIBLE .The last three times I was here waiters were too busy giving each other massages to notice we are waiting for service, took extremely long with the bill,different waiters coming each time to bring an order, and a...

I have had plenty of good burgers at Hudsons, one of my favourite places to a quick lunch or dinner with some mates and beers. The staff are high energy, service is normally pretty quick and the beer is always ice cold! I would definitely recommend having one of the slider selections, this gives you a little taste of everything.

Recommended. The rating this place enjoys are a great example of how readers must take reviews on this site with the proverbial grain of salt. Generally, I'm underwhelmed with my dining experiences in Cape Town, South Africa. This performance of this place did nothing to dismiss this sentiment. Restaurant prices here, generally, are around 10-20% less than the U.S. If... More

I just finished to climb lion's head and was felling for fat food. Hudsons looks like the right place to feed my energy level. The location is okay. The burgers are okay. The inky waitress super okay. An overall good experience. Will I drive 20 km to eat @ Hudsons... Probably not... but a cool option time to time for... More
