    The good at Hodson's is good and imaginative, and the drinks are strong. But the place is almost unbearably noisy. We managed to snag a cubbyhole table in the back corner, and, at least, could hear each other talk (not always possible in table and booths in the center of the place. The other noteworthy thing is the bifurcated menu. There are $15+ entrees. There are $30+ entrees. But not much in-between. Both sets are good (the flatbreads were very tasty, the osso bucco yummy if not quite falling off the bone, the chicken sliders enjoyable), but the split still felt odd. We'll be back, mostly for the good food and the convenience at Southglenn. I just wish they could figure out some sound absorbing strategies.

  • Heat was broken when it was 15 degrees out...brrr

    Dined on 11/16/2014
    We decided to try Hodson's for a casual Sunday night dinner, as it was in the neighborhood, and seemed like it was a warm/inviting place. Upon being seated, we were told by our server that the heat was broken and that the manager had left to rectify the situation. It was noticeably cold, even with down jackets on. We figured why not stick around, we had been assured it should only be a brief period of discomfort. 90 minutes later, with cold air blowing on us from the vents above, we were still wearing down jackets and so uncomfortable we had to leave. The evening was tough - basically trying to eat a nice dinner while totally tense from the cold. The food & service were both fine, but we just had a hard time enjoying it.

  • Great lamb chops and ossobuco...

    Dined on 11/14/2014
    Have been to Hodson's several times and have always enjoyed it. This time, the food was over the top. Both dinners were perfectly prepared and presented. We had the lamb chops and the ossobuco. Also, don't miss the baked brie appetizer with peach marmelade and mint jelly. Really very impressive. Service was attentive but not overly so. Noise level rating is really about the music which was a mildly irritating techno dance blend that was a little too loud, a little too weird. Other than that, it was a wonderful dining experience.

    Hodson's is one of my favorite Southglenn restaurants. It's a nice vibe for the neighborhood, classy but not too swanky. Love the cocktails, wine and beer list. They have amazing salads and I love everything on the menu- except for the sushi. Sorry, but the two times it tried it were just not worth it and far inferior to the other menu items. However, overall, I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

    Had an early dinner Sat night with another couple. Too often we forget about this place. They have Happy Hour every night AND it extends to the restaurant - at least it extended to the patio for us. We were catching up with friends and our waiter was very cognizant that we weren't in a rush. He let us order as we were ready......we could linger over apps and cocktails. Food was very good. Good variety on the menu to please everyone in the crowd. We'll be back.

    If you're shopping around the streets of Southglenn, this is a restaurant that's more than just hamburgers, a bar, etc. Fish tacos were so, so, but my mother-in-law LOVED the chicken salad with goat's cheese and other yummy toppings.

    ...where if you are catching a movie or find yourself hungry after shopping you can get a decent burger or pizza that isn't some "brew house." The food here used to be more upscale and fabulous (the décor is befitting that) but the menu has been "dumbed down" to appeal to who we're not sure. Service is either great or inconsistent. Never lousy just sometimes painfully slow and unresponsive. Super patio area on a nice day. Each of the wine selections we picked were either our of stock or not the vintage year as advertised. Which, considering the limited wine list, is a bit off-putting.

    We'd been fans of Hodson's since our first visit. The space is gorgeous, lots of food choices which are generally quite good, and the place was buzzing. You could grab a seat at the bar, chow down on 50/50 sliders (1/2 need, 1/2 bacon) and watch a game. It was great. We went back last week after a short hiatus, and I cannot express this strongly enough-the place is terrible. The menu is completely different, no more 50/50 sliders of anything else worth ordering, and the service was abysmal. I hesitate even taking the time to write this since there were maybe 3 other tables seated during evening rush hour. If it's still open in a month, I'll be shocked. It's a shame though, since this place literally went off the rails in record speed.

    We thought the service was outstanding. Maybe they've made changes since previous reviews? Our waiter was attentive, patient, and knew how to time the courses well. We ate indoors, which was nicely decorated and it seemed like the tables were all separated well enough so that the noise level was quite tolerable. The appetizers and dinners were attractive and tasty. I had the fish tacos--maybe would have preferred more blackening and more fish. Others had lobster Mac and cheese, which they enjoyed. One person had the ahi salad. It looked the best of the group.

    Arrived 15 minutes earlier than my party so I thought I'd have a drink at the bar while waiting. I never saw a bartender or waitress and was never able to get drink. No service was offered. When we were seated at the table, the server came over and took our order. He wrote nothing down. Needless to say, the appetizer never came, one of the entrees was incorrect and two of the side orders were wrong. The server never came over to our table to check on us when the food arrived so I had to go find him to get the order corrected. The food was good not good enough to come back and endure the horrendous service.

    This is a reliable restaurant to have lunch or dinner. We put it in a similar category to Cherry Creek Grill and Earl's, but food and service are not at the same level a Cherry Creek Grill. It is just across the street from the theatre and makes for a convenient one stop evening.

    The food was good, except my ribeye was a little fatty. My wife had the lobster macaroni and it was delicious! Our server was terrible. He was not attentive and had no personal interaction. I've had better service at a fast food place. The rest of the staff was friendly and helpful so I think this was just a bad egg versus a widespread problem.

    We went there for Mother's Day. My son and I had menu items, which were fine. My friend ordered a Caesar salad with grilled chicken, which was not on the menu. They grilled the salad as well, or at least put it under the warmer - it was awful! I wanted to send it back, but my friend decided to tough it out. Stick with the menu.

    My wife had previously dined with friends for lunch and loved it. Our waiter was wonderful and even supplied me with reading glasses as I had forgotten mine. He was very knowledgeable of the wine and food. We started with the crab dish which was so plentiful we could not finish. My wife had the fish tacos and I the Coconut Curry Halibut. Both were delicious. The pricing was right where I expected it to be. Its close to home and we will definitely be returning. It seemed a little noisy but was tolerable.

    We saw Hodson's when we were in the area shopping previously, but it was not a meal time. We looked up the menu online and decided to go back next time we were in Denver. I am so glad we did. The food was delicious.! We started with the grilled artichoke which was a fun interactive hands on food. I had the mahi mahi tacos and was full without feeling heavy. My husband had the prime dip, which was also great crunchy bread with a nice au jus. We will definitely be back to try some other menu items!

  • No Easter Brunch
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 4/20/2014
    I checked with Open Table for Easter Sunday Brunch in the Highlands Ranch area. Hudson's was the only place that had an available time for brunch of 4 p.m. We were a party of 8. When we arrived, we were told that Easter Sunday Brunch stopped at 3 p.m. We were offered the regular menu. Our food was terrible. My salad was wilted, the sushi awful, and the only good things were the hamburgers and the sweet potato fries. We believed we were served the leftovers from the buffet brunch. I think Open Table mis-lead me by offering the 4 p.m. time with the idea of it being Easter Sunday Brunch.

    We ordered spicy tuna rolls and they tasted fishy. I'm guessing the tuna was old. I was excited to have the braised short ribs it was a rib that was dry there was a lot of mashed sweet potatoes I guess to make up for the fact that there was only one small rib. It looked dwarfed on the plate. On a positive not the waiter we had in the bar was nice and the drinks were good. We will not be back to eat at Hudson's south Glenn to bad we like eating at local restaurants before a movie

    The service, from initial greeting throughout the table service was just fine; no complaints. While the restaurant setting implies a normal mid-scale experience, in fact the menu is primarily that of a sports bar, with burgers and sandwiches and a very limited true dinner menu. We both ordered filet mignon medium rare (the only steak offered). Mine was delivered well done. The replacement steak was extremely rare, and I just ate it to avoid being a complainer. Accordingly I have little to say about the quality of their kitchen or their menu. We will not go back.

    One of the women that I was with ordered something she did not really care for. The waitress did not have a clue how to handle the situation.....she should have taken the plate away immediately and asked if there was anything else she could bring her. Instead, the plate sat at the table until the end. This waitress should have gone to her manager and asked what to do in this situation. The woman did order a small salad and when we got the bill, nothing was comped. We won't return to this restaurant and they do have good food. Sad that the server really wasn't equipped with the skills to handle this situation!
