A must stop for special occassions

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... read more

Excellent food and good service. Hudson's on the Bend is another of those Austin establishments that are a bit unusual (location, exotic menu, exterior and interior appearance) but a fantastic find. A bit on the high side of the price range, but you will not leave disappointed or with any regrets.

Hudson's is absolutely fabulous!!! My husband had the Elk back strap that was tender enough to cut with a fork, and it did not have that "game-y" taste that you sometimes get with wild meats. I had the crusty trout that was the perfect combination of crunch, spice, and fish, something that I would certainly order again! Our appetizer was... More

I took my husband and friends from out of town to eat at Hudson's May, 2015. I have dined at this restaurant before, but this time was more outstanding than ever!! For food selection, I had the Coca Cola baby back ribs and the hot & crunchy jumbo shrimp - both were cooked to perfection!! The sauce for the shrimp... More

From the outside you would never know this is a very nice place with high priced food. Just be prepared to pay high prices. I ordered the salmon with roasted brussel sprouts which was very good. Hubby got the special trout which had 2 good size pieces of fish. They have a nice outdoor, covered patio area but it only... More

my boyfriend and I went here for dinner last night I had the elk and he had the mixed grill. Food was very good. The waitstaff was good and attentive. The only drawback was the AC blasting and the atmosphere is not quite up to fine dining

The restaurant is beautiful, with plenty of light that isn't too bright. The wait staff was terrific. The food was brought out much quicker than expected. We had the chocolate-espresso-chili rubbed elk, and the mixed grill. Both were exquisite, though I preferred the elk. The bread came with two butter mixes, one of which was honey chipotle. It's a wonderful... More

Rattlesnake cakes? Pheasant? How about some trout? This place has a wonderfully exotic menu that will both thrill your pallet and please the eyes with presentation. The chef does a wonderful job on the most minuscule details. Elegant Hill Country dining at its finest. Highly recommended.

Great burgers and super large tvs. Came here to enjoy a view of the pier and also catch Basketball on TV. Not crowded and had great service. Waiter handled an underage drinker at a table nearby very professionally. Great work being aware. Stick to burgers - great flavor for the meat & order the onion rings. Skip the BBQ chicken.

this restaurant, although it's been around for many years, continues to be one of the best in Austin and the Texas Hill country. The menu is creating an extremely well executed. The variety is excellent and many of the items are things not commonly found on your everyday restaurant menu. The wine list is above average and overall it is... More
