    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.

We had drinks and 2 bottles of a very nice Californian Pinot Griggio ... we stayed for almost 4 hours!! One thing though: Young lady at the door needs training on smiling and being welcoming.

    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!

    My wife and I have been to this restaurant probably 3 times in the past 2 years for special events. This last time was disappointing to say the least. The service was very good, however they have removed many items form there menu that we actually enjoyed. The Restaurant was ice cold! The food was decent but not good enough for the money. We will not be coming back.

    I recommend Hodson's for a tasty meal on a date night. The service was speedy and the price was reasonable. The decor is a little austere for my taste. Our two person booth felt crowded because of the high half wall on one side and the narrow table and seat width. But overall, the experience was pleasant.

    We were a party of 4. The apps were the best part of the meal. The artichoke dip and sashimi were nicely prepared. The entrees were so-so, average at best. We ordered the Short Ribs and Filet. The Ribs were super salty and the Filets were under cooked. The meals were served with a strange orange mash potato (we avoided it) - it looked like sweet potatoes. However, it doesn't say that on the menu. For dessert we ordered the Chocolate Mousse and Carrot Cake. Stay away from the carrot cake - dry and disappointing. The Mousse was tasty! As far as the service, the waiter, Joe, was great. He was timely with drinks and refills. Overall, I probably won't go back to the restaurant since there are other places in the neighborhood just as good.

    We went to Hodson's for Valentine's Day, and ordered the special. The food was excellent with just-right quantities. Our hostess was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu, but, since it was a holiday and the place was crowded, she was a little pushed for time. We've been there previously, and we will go back.
