“Back to being the best! Great food.”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Our little family ate at Hudson's a couple of nights ago. As usual, the sunset view is wonderful. It is a great setting. They have outside seating with a bar. In the summer they have entertainment, sometimes good, sometimes not so good. ;) Our meal here was really good. We love the hush puppy recipe they use. They are a little on the sweet side but we like that. Our waitress, Joy, was so cheerful. She was a delight. I had wonderful blackened scallops and shrimp that were cooked perfectly. Our daughter had a steak. Hubby had the special which was really good as well. This is a must visit on the island! Super busy in the summer so come early.

“Great fresh seafood”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Had she crab soup and fish and chips for lunch. The soup had lots of crab and the fish was lightly battered and moist. The wait staff was very friendly.

“Hudson's is a fine restaurant on Hilton Head Island”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

My husband and I spent 3 days on Hilton Head Island, SC in September - our first visit. It was a great trip: lovely scenery, friendly people, very pedestrian and bike friendly. One evening we ate at Hudson's - just picked it off a list of seafood restaurants. Very pleased with the food, the service from our waitress Haeley and the beautiful sunset we watched while waiting for our table. The price was reasonable and we would go there again.

“Our favorite restaurant in Hilton Head”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We go to Hilton Head a few times a year to golf and we always eat at Hudson's at least once and sometimes more. It's great food with good service and a nice atmosphere. Parking is a bear and you often have to park at the neighboring Chart House restaurant. Crab cakes. Shrimp&Grits, stuffed shrimp, gumbo....it's all good.
