Hudson’s is out for the way, but well worth the drive and hassle. The seafood here is fresh - there are boat docks out the back of the restaurant. The hush puppies are to die for.

Waited about 45 minutes for a table but it was well worth it. Our waiter, Borg, was excellent. The Mussels appetizer was superior. All dinners were above par. I recommend this for families.

We had a great meal with our family again at Hudsons! From the hush puppies to the local fish and shrimp to the key lime pie, Hudsons is the perennial classic local seafood dining experience for a lot of our family. The only improvement I wish for is reservations. As best I can tell, unless you are willing to wait for 1-2 hours, you have to arrive at 5 pm, 5:15 at the latest. When we left at 7:00, we passed a lot of long faces waiting and waiting. And I couldn't help but notice that there were plenty of empty tables when we left at 7:00--I don't think there would have been any empty tables if reservations were possible. But what do I know?

Large family lunch with adults, young kids and grandparents. Everyone happy with their choices (except cold fries). Excellent blackened scallops. We had to wait for 30 min for table due to holiday week but outside scenery helped pass the time. Fried green tomatoes was delicious app. Friendly and attentive wait staff. Tourist spot. A bit pricey but that's to be expected on island.

We enjoyed a lunch of fish and chips, shrimp and fries, key lime pie, and peanut butter pie. It was all great and the service was friendly and quick. It was too cold for us to sit on the deck but that is great in warmer weather.
