We were invited by friends to experience the wide-ranging selection of unusual meats on offer. The restaurant staff are very well-trained, being knowledgeable and attentive without being overly familiar. The setting is lovely and the dining rooms vety attractive. It's really hard to choose from such a vast choice of dishes, but i the end we settled for two share... More

We took a group of 18 students and parents here and had a blast. They treated us very well - set up a table outside in their beautiful courtyard under the strings of lights. Service was fantastic, even with such a large group. The menu is very different - lots of game and local foods and the descriptions are mouth-watering.... More

Our family in Lakeway has shown us some very good restaurants in west and north Austin. Hudson's on the Bend is one of them. On our first visit 10 years ago, Hudson vas excellent. This time we were disappointed. Average food and service.

Hudson's used to be the best restaurant in Austin but a recent visit showed a sharp decline. While the Hot & Crunchy Trout and the smoked tenderloin were as fabulous as always, the rib eye steaks were not just bad but were terrible. They were incredibly tough and the taste was not at all up to Hudson's old standard. It... More

Rattlesnake sausage! When it tasted somewhat like pork they said it had some- I wonder how much. Fried trout was crispy and fresh. I explored with elk done very well. Corn soup had a nice taste. Nice waitstaff.

We ate here for our anniversary. It was definitely a pricey meal, but was so good. we did the 3 course tasting. It was delicious, our server was great. We did not do the wine pairing with it but opted for just a glass each with our meal which was perfect. Definitely would do again!

I drive by this place most days and the smells of the wood grilled food is amazing. We have eaten here 3 times in the past few years and it's always special. It is rather pricey, but we leave feeling like it was worth it.

Drove from Driftwood to celebrate with family. Closed and no one around at 6pm. Tried making reservation and recording said we're busy with customers. We tried all afternoon.

My girlfriend and I come here rather often when we come out to the Lake and it never fails to impress. It certainly isn't cheap, but you're not going to some overpriced, restaurant-of-the-month fusion place that you'll forget about a week later and will be gone in 6 months. Rather you're getting high quality food that's truly excellent. There's plenty... More

Before my son became vegan, we counted 12 animals that have their lives for our last meal there-and it was an amazing celebration of food down to the rattlesnake cakes.
