Wonderful place for those who enjoy a fine meal

The place is not fancy, the waitresses don't wear white gloves, the decor is clearly hill country. Don't let that misguide you, this is an excellent restaurant. My wife and I had the trout and a steak. Both were wonderful, flavorful and unique. Our French friends thought they had the best duck... read more

Hubby and I ate at Hudson's On the Bend on Sunday, August 16th. We always enjoy the good; and generally, we get awesome service. This was not the case this time...young lady who served us seemed distracted, and got several things wrong. She was friendly and apologetic, however; so that made up for it. We love dining here, and will... More

It has been too long since we ate here, but now that we have renewed our relationship we will go often. We bought the tasting menu from Groupon. The choices were an excellent representation of Hudson's diverse menu. We ordered an appetizer outside of the tasting menu because the bacon wrapped duck sounded so good; it was. The beef tenderloin... More

We had hosted a dinner here for our managers at our annual managers meeting. The food was excellent and the menu is unique. They were very well organized and accomodating to our group. The atmospher is very romantic, charming and unique.

This place doesn't look like much from the road, but it's well worth it to step past the curb and see what's inside. There is a darling patio area complete with fairy lights or you can enjoy the inside seating which features multiple rooms and a lot of privacy. The wait staff is superb. And the food? Perfection. Everything on... More

Chose this restaurant for a family dinner on a recent visit to Austin. I chose the restaurant for its good reviews and interesting menu, as my adult children enjoy adventurous dining. We were not disappointed. Two of us enjoyed the three course meal option, one with the beef and one with the pork. Both were delicious, as were the wine... More

We experienced and throughly enjoyed a 3 course wine pairing dinner. Each course had 3 food options. The food presentation and taste was delicious. The atmosphere was rustic and yet elegant. We walked through the herb garden on our way back to the car. Great evening,

We had the three course tasting menu. It was incredibly filling and rich but delicious. We both could not finish dessert and came home feeling very full even though the food didn't look like huge portions. But the ingredients are excellent quality and the food very gourmet and rich. It was absolutely delicious but not cheap. However I wouldn't say... More

What can I say, it's simply the best. I don't make a habit of dining there because I just can't afford it but occasionally, when I do, it's so worth it. I am constantly reminded of what great food and wine taste like and the service is unpretentious. Everything is great but, first timers may wish to try the sampler... More

With a "rustic" atmosphere including walls covered with local artwork (some very good!), the sophisticated food and lovely wine list make this a must stop place for any foodie. Great selection of set menus - but you better be hungry for the generous portions. Good for private groups, special occasions, or a romantic dinner for two. Service was friendly (as... More
