A busy and lively NEW spot in Hudson, Wisconsin! We've stopped in on Saturday evenings for a drink and have enjoyed the staff, service, food and drinks! their flat bread pizza's are GREAT! I love the 'Corona-rita' a margarita with a Corona beer stuck into it upside down! it's is loud, lively and busy! We have also had great appetizers there too.... along with the free popcorn!

The atmosphere at Smilin Moose is quite upbeat and fun. There are tons of staff and service is very good. The pulled port sandwich is very good and the grilled cheese is tasty. Serving sizes are generous and you will have extra to take home. Drinks are a little pricy but the atmosphere seems to encourage trying something from the bar. Appetizers and very good and generous. We have enjoyed all three of our meals at this restaurant and will return again.

We had become bi-weekly patrons of the Smilin Moose since it opened earlier this year. We absolutely loved their walleye and it's what we usually order. The wait staff had from the very beginning seemed very well trained and friendly. We stopped in and brought friends with us. When we walked in on Sunday, the place was only filled about halfway. There were three young women workers at the hostess stand, visiting and laughing. When we finally got their attention, we requested one of the four-top tables in the front of the restaurant by the open window. There were two of these tables unoccupied. We were told we would have to sit in the back, not where we requested. The only negative I have ever found about this place is how crowded the tables are in the back. Our friend indicated the back was not acceptable and we would prefer what we requested. That being taken care of, we were waited on by Emerson quickly and the service was great. The problem was, the walleye fingers we always order were about half the size we usually have and not worth the price on the menu. It was a huge disappointment, especially after recommending it to our friends. Perhaps there is something going on there such as management change-over or something, but we'll stay away for a while. Too bad - we had come to see this restaurant as our walleye destination.

If just going for beer the bar is ok. They have 24 beers on tap and decent happy hour prices. The interior is nice and woodsy with plenty of TVs for watching sports. The burger our grandson had seemed ok, but the grilled cheese and walleye sandwiches my wife and I had were terrible. Came with think slices of some kind of grilled bread that was inedible. The walleye was thickly battered and tasteless.
