Gourmet, intimate setting, rich food

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.

We had the three course tasting menu. It was incredibly filling and rich but delicious.

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

Explore the menu. Do not get what you would normally get if seen on your menu. This is a very good time to let chefs use their talents to give you a treat. I was advised by another to do this and made the plunge. I ordered something that I considered horrible and when the dish arrived it was spectacular!... More

This is one of my all time favorite restaurants and I'm sad to share our recent experience. Not sure if the fact we were using a Groupon or that the wait person thought she recognized me (and thought I was a cheap tipper), but the service was just "off" for the entire evening. The words the servers were using were... More

Really wonderful food, service and atmosphere. It's worth the drive for sure. Everything we ordered was great, but the best thing was probably the hot and crunchy trout- amazing stuff. Great spot for a special occasion.

We booked an early Father's Day Dinner surprise for my husband here last June 18th. We all had the 3-course menu and it was delicious. Our daughters enjoyed the desserts and my husband loved the drinks and main course. I loved the salad and the watermelon coconut mix cocktail. Good service.

Hudsons' on the Bend has an excellent menu with lots of variety. You can go with the grass fed New York Strip (like my husband) or the grilled venison chops (like me). The appetizers feature everything from bacon wrapped sea scallops to rattlesnake. What ever you choose to eat will be delicious. The service is top notch. They are definitely... More

I loved the food but my wife wife had a texture issue so I had to put 4 stars instead of the well deserved 5 stars. I will go by myself to eat and I am sure it will be 5 stars. The problem, is that I want to eat everything on the menu!

Hudson's is one of those upscale offerings that is on our must return list. We try to go back at least a couple of time during the year. Excellent food, ever changing menu of often exotic complexity and taste, excellent service. If your looking for a special place to take that special someone, you can't go wrong with Hudson's. Also...
