Not only the food but also the atmosphere and service makes Hudson’s a favorite of ours each time we visit Hilton Head.

First visited over 20 years ago, come here every island visit. Good seafood and plenty of it equal tremendous value. Service is great...seafood platter is a challenge to finish. Crab cake appetizer about 110% crab! Never have been able to eat desert but looks super.

I had swordfish with French fries and pickled veggie. Everything was so tasty, I loved every bite. Service was outstanding and they are very accommodating on substitution! We were a group of 6 and everyone was vey happy with their choices.

We stayed on the opposite end of the Island, so it wasn't as close as other places. It was well worth the drive. Fortunately, it was warm enough to sit outside and the food was delicious! My only regret....I didn't try the she-crab soup!
