My wife and I shared the oysters Hudson, oysters Rockefeller and grilled oysters. She is big into oysters. I am not typically, but these were all excellent. I will go back to have them again.

We eat at Hudson's on the Docks everytime we visit Hilton Head. We usually eat there at least once, sometimes twice on the same visit. Food is excellent and service was very good. The wait wasn't too long. Thoroughly enjoyed it!
