What a five star establishment! – The only person I would bring to eat here is my ex-husband's divorce atty! I have never in my life been inside an unhappier place than this. The staff was unfriendly from the beginning to the end! Our entire tables food came out cold and old looking as if it had sat under those hot lights in the back for an hour. I didnt even touch my plate which angered me to think about hard money that I just basically flushed. We tried to voice our opionion's to someone claiming he was the owner( salt and peppered hair) what a waste of time that was. After a conversation with this gentleman I understood two things. 1) Why the staff was so miserably unfriendly! 2) Why, at almost the age of 65, this owner didnt have a marriage band on! Hudson's, pack up and go back north!
Whadafuxup? – I have seen(not tasted) the free "bologna lasagna" and besides the obvious WTF! I will say it brings back those warm and fuzzy feelings of "da getto"!
I would give this place 2 1/2 stars – Service was ok, the food was ok, the atmosphere was ok, but not one thing really knocked my socks off. I truly wouldnt make this place my "datenight" but probably would stop in for a lunch, but not a quick lunch. I also wouldnt bring my children back to this place with the focal eye point being a bar. Yes, they do have a gameroom but from what my 11 yr old says is that the games are all outdated and not a lot to choose from. Also, there was a little bit of trouble with the game systems taking quarters.
Yes, pay in CASH! – Dont usually like to become the "bus driver" but definately have to agree with SC0008. The worst thing is not the headache though, its not being able to get your hard earned money back! And if memory serves me correct Gino is no longer the owner.
Pay in cash.....!!!! – If your like me and do not like to carry cash and would rather use plastic, make sure you check your acct. to be certain that the tip you left is the tip that was charged to your acct. The headache this has caused me.....!!!!! Seems that Gino just changed the name!
Sunday night free food! I think not.... – I am not one to say that I know everything about cooking! Last time I checked my name was Jason and not "Emrill" the famous chef! But growing up in a houshold w/ a mother that loved home cooked meals I can say that I do know a thing or two. I was drawn in by the advertisement of free food and dancing, hey who wouldnt be right! As I slowly started to stuff my face w/ the free lasagna, I noticed something quite different than any lasagna I have ever tasted! The good people at Hudson's use bologna for meat substitute! Yes, this place is very classy! Definately a five star Manhatten type restaurant!
Great seafood experience – We arrived early on a Friday evening for our reservation, but were seated promptly. The service could not have been better and the oysters were some of the best I've tasted. This place has a fun "Manhattan Bar / Restaurant" feel to it, whivch is saying something in Raleigh. We'll certainly be back
Whats up with the oysters? – Got 2 pecks and not one oyster was bigger than almost a quarter? Wasnt to happy! There are better Oyster bars in Raleigh, would recomend sticking to those.
Hudson's Oyster Bar, Literally??? – I walked in and suddenly found myself confused! Did I bring my family to a restaurant or a strip mall bar? Did we wait to be seated or did we help ourselves? By the end of our meal I was able to answer the previously asked question. I was in fact in a strip mall bar! The service was lousy the food was terrible not to mention the background was filled w/ live karaoke. At almost 100$ this is no place to waste that kind of money on a nice relaxing family dinner! And dont get me started on the portions although Im thankful I didnt waste more food! My only question to management/owner would be do you actually get most of your food from the Hudson?
Worst Oyster Bar in Raleigh – Poor Hudson's, is still trying to find its place in Raleigh. I was in Hudson's not too long ago and I had won a gift certificate from one of there trivia nights. I tried to use the gift cert that tues night, but I was told you couldn't use it until next visit. So....I came in that following tues because I really enjoyed the bartender, Erin, who is always so friendly with everyone! At the end of the evening I gave Erin my gift cert, value $20.00, my tab was 16.99, I wanted to give the rest of the money to Erin as a tip, but I was told by the owner that we were not allowed to get cash back from the gift cert, but that we would have had to use the whole thing or we would have to take a loss. I have never heard of such a thing in my life. I had no cash on me and I did not want to stiff Erin beacuse she is so great. This really upset me and I argued with the owner for a minute about it, but he was very hard headed, wouldn't even give me a credit for the 4.00 in gift cert form. This must be how they are staying afloat, steeling from the customer and there employees! I have not been back since, other than to bring the bartender her rightfully deserved tip!
