The atmosphere is definitely rustic Texas and the atmosphere friendly and inviting, but you want to go for the food. Hudson's smokes their own meats daily and the result is spectacular.

We were lucky enough to be taken to this amazing restaurant by friends. We had chatted a bit about the menu before arriving so were ready for some different offerings. The atmosphere was casual and perfect for the Texas Hill Country location. I ordered the Hot and Crunchy Trout which on the surface is an unusual combination but in reality... More

The chefs do all the work!! The presentations gastronomic art ! We ate elk, duck,pheasant, lobster and peanut butter pie. Meat foodies heaven! It was valentines and service did not match the food experience. Be aware added gratuity is 20% on top of the taxes, not before... Wouldn't miss this experience because of it. Truly talented folks in the kitchen!!!

For my birthday I chose our old favorite and I am so glad. We usually do the 3 course Chef's tasting menu, but tonight I decided on the mixed grill. A half order was more than enough. The meats were excellent, especially the venison and the little quail! So good! Jan had the duck with scallops. What a succulent combination.... More

Quick facts: I'm a foodie. I would be thrilled to travel the world basing every stop on food. I like lots of flavor with fresh, real ingredients. I would NEVER compromise taste for healthy, but I don't like unnecessary calories either. I like my food cooked perfectly. 9 times out of 10 I'll opt for a little hole in the... More

I proposed to my girlfriend here on a Friday night. Staff was very accommodating. We will definitely be coming back here again. We loved everything about the restaurant, however one minor critique is it was a bit bright throughout. If the lights were dimmed, it would've been a LOT more romantic. that's a very minor complaint, and we will definitely... More

After having a horrific meal at one of the "Hot New Restaurants" on the East Side, we came to Hudson's Patio in hopes of salvaging the evening for dessert. As our previous meal was not fulfilling, we also opted for an order of Hot and Crunchy Shrimp. The bartenders and waiters were great, the shrimp and desserts were fantastic, and... More

My wife and I made reservations for our 41 anniversary at Hudson's on the Bend where we have had wonderful experiences in the past. We were immediately seated, and then queried about drinks before we had even opened a menu which I tremendously dislike. We did order a bottle of bubbly, salads, venison chops, and my wife got the 3... More

We were here for Christmas Eve dinner. Wonderful atmosphere. Great food. Duck breast with scallops was to die for. Perfectly presented. Tuna was also outstanding.
