Best fish I have ever eaten

My wife and I love fine dining and have adventurous palates so we were excited to try Hudson's on the Bend. Actually we rolled in with a Groupon but decided to save it so that we could order at will off the menu. As it turned out, my wife ordered the Trout which was a Groupon option. I have to... read more

Come to Hudson's when you need a meat fix. Great varied menu. Try the venison chops or the pork chop or the mixed grill if you just can't decide. Great place for special occasions.

Hudson's on the Bend consistently delivers the best fine dining experience in Austin bar none. This is the place I took my wife to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. It's quiet and romantic and intimate and the food is spectacular. The wait staff are the very definition of attentiveness and refinement. Their signature dish is the Hot and Crunchy Ruby... More

Excellent bar service / options to start the night and then a spectacular range of options for dinner. The Crispy Trout is simply one of the best dishes anywhere in the city, and the rest of our party was thrilled with their choices, including the fixed price menu / chef's choice option. It's a quirky, out of the way place,... More

Although this is definitely fine dining it's not pretentious at all. Some interesting culinary creations that have never ceased to please me. If you are a 'Game" person there are lots of opportunities to try different and new experiences. The Hudson's Mixed Grill is definitely a must but beware - it's a lot of food so share or get the...

My first visit to Hudson's was quite a few years ago, but I still remember it like it was yesterday. My aunt had just returned home from being stationed overseas, and she took my mother and I to dinner in what, at the time, was still the middle of nowhere. I remember thinking at the time, what kind of restaurant... More

We were a party of five, getting together to celebrate my son't birthday. The menu included an interesting combination of traditional American dishes (steak, trout) and Hill Country food and game. The appetizers were generally excellent; we ordered salads, pumpkin soup and the pulled pork Quesadillas. The main courses were where we found ourselves a little less positive. Our waitress... More

Hudson's on the Bend has become an institution because the food is always good and the service is excellent. There is nothing on the menu that I have eaten that I dislike. If it is steak or beef, it is great steak or beef. The same for chicken and seafood. Hudson's offers great wines at a fairly reasonable price and... More

We were a group of three couples arriving from different parts of the country on a Friday evening and looking for a place for dinner. What a pleasant and delicious way to start our weekend in Austin. The restaurant is very unique with lots of side rooms and outside bar and courtyard area. Service was excellent and wonderful recommendations given... More
