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

We took a large birthday group, 28 people, to Hudsons. It was all pre-arranged and we had a selected menu to choose from. The 3-4 course meals were paired with wines. DELICIOUS !!! I had the lobster bisque first, crusted trout entrée and the chocolate pecan pie... The wines paired were so good. The Service was very dedicated and organized.... More

My wife and I chose this restaurant on Valentines weekend and had an excellent meal, as always. I chose the mixed grill which was a combination of 5 or 6 different meats, all very well prepared. The service was great and the atmosphere very pleasant. Do not miss the chocolate dipped pecan pie. OMG, it is so good!

Very interesting menu and food was prepared to perfection. Most impressive is the staff. They all have worked there a long time for restaurant staff. Owners must treat them well to retain them.

Austin friends took us here on a Sunday evening. The staff were very friendly and helpful with menu recommendations. The food was excellent. Between us we had salmon, duck, elk and trout and they were each complex dishes with extraordinary flavors. Fantastic!
