This place is an Austin original. I remember coming here for my UT graduation dinner. The old house is so charming, and the food is amazing. It is very expensive, but worth every penny. We live out here now, and this is our "go-to" spot for birthdays, anniversaries, special occasions. There are a lot of very different choices (wild game),... More

I hadn't been to Hudson's in almost 30 years, so I can't compare it to the "old" Hudson's. But I can't imagine the old being that much better than the new - maybe "different" is the issue? We had tuna and elk and both were outstanding. Our waiter, Joshua, was just as outstanding - friendly, attentive and helpful - fully... More

The "new" Hudson's has zero remaining for the old, nostalgic goodness left. The remodel is pretty, sharp, and very "Austin" but with the competition in this city, the food has missed the mark 100%! Spending approximately $100 per person, you'd expect a Wagyu steak that is tender, cooked appropriately and served with something other than French fries! The rib was... More

Our experience with the new Hudson's on the Bend was mixed. The former restaurant had fabulous staff that were long-term employees and very experienced. The reincarnation is a younger group, and they are just starting out. Hopefully they will improve as time goes along. (Please don't bring out appetizers before wine has been brought to the table!) It isn't the... More

I would have wholeheartedly recommended the "old" Hudson's. Not so with Hudson's under their new management. The menu has changed & the atmosphere has changed. The whole experience lacks the warmth it once had and is quite simply not worth the cost.

Our waitress, Marly was so gracious and welcoming as well as as Chris , who introduced us to a wonderful French wine which was perfect with our meal. Appetizers of Tamale short ribs with mole negro, and hot and crunchy lobster were outstanding! Unlike anything we have ever had !!!! Entrees followed with double porkchop and a fabulous quail dish...

Closed for months during renovation we anxiously awaited this fine restaurant's return. If only the menu had matched the tasteful upgrades. Updated to a more modern look the renovation both inside and out is a success. The new bar area is awesome. Now for the menu. Gone are the fabulous salads and appetizers. A scaled back menu is presented with... More

Just had our first dinner with sommelier Chris McFall and chef Billy Caruso at their newly reopened Hudson's. We have loved this restaurant for many years but were thrilled with the fresh updated look the new owners have brought to an old favorite. These gentlemen know their stuff as does their staff. The service was impeccable. With a party of... More
