    We've been going to Hudson for years and this time we noticed that the normally generous portions had decreased significantly. My turkey Reuben sandwich had half the amount of meat and almost no sauerkraut in it. I actually had to open it up to see if there was any at all. I sent my premium, hand crafted drink back because I truly believe that there was no alcohol in it whatsoever. I don't know what's going on, but it isn't good. Come on, Hudson, you can do so much better!

    Food was burnt. My wife had one of the chicken salads and it was not good. My food was adequate. Kids were not thrilled with their food either. Service was a bit slow but was friendly. Not sure what is going on at this spot but the cook's need to be replaced.

    I am some colleagues went to Hudson Grille for wings, beer, and baseball, so my expectations were not that strenuous. Even so, the food was good and the beer was cold. The service was a bit lacking, but not enough to keep me from returning. Overall, a laid-back easy dinner with friends. I also like that Hudson Grille is on OpenTable so that I can make reservations at a local eatery.

    My wife and I went to Hudson's for the final 4. It was a wonderful experience. Form Alex (manager) to Scott (server) everyone made us feel at home. Service was really outstanding. Attentive but not overbearing and very fast even though they were busy. The food was excellent, much better than we expected and portions were generous. Prices are reasonable. The noise level was PERFECT. Active enough to know you are in a sports bar but not so loud you can't carry on a conversation. Overall a real find. We will be back!!!!!!!!

    After checking online for several kid specials for dinner, I ran across multiple websites that offered this restaurant and location for Tues night .99 kids meals. Once receiving my bill and asking, I found out that obviously the information was incorrect. Along with a few other problems, I did not have a good experience there with my family.

    We had a large party and was seated right away. Was a bit loud but it was also Triva night. The food was good the only problem was due to the kitchen being backed up so our party got their food at different times but since we were not in a hurry it ok by us. Our server Ilan Joel was excellent dealing with our large party with a smile and was very helpful with suggestions as to what order and how to have it prepared. We will be back in the future.

    This place may look like your typical neighborhood chain style bar, but it's far above average. I have yet to find anything on the menu that I don't like. Had the meatloaf last night, and I'm not a fan of spinach. But I've learned to trust the chef here, and it was rewarded with the best greens I've ever eaten. The meatloaf was also amazing. Whatever you get, ask for a small cup of the bacon tomato jam to dip, it's that good. The mac and cheese is not to be missed. They also have a nice selection of trendy Martini's (for only 5 bucks each!) but also know how to create actual drinks-the "new fashions) was great! It was good enough that my wife wanted to go there for Valentine's Day! It was loud, but not overly.

    Reservation was for 7pm; advised upon arrival the kitchen was backed up & wait for 15 mins.; 7:30pm kitchen still backed up wait another 15 mins. FINALLY seated @ 7:40pm, The server brought 1 persons food 10 minutes before the other 2. Note to restaurant: Never do a holiday seating again; you can't handle the traffic! This was one of the few places open in Alpharetta so a crowd should have been expected & additional staff scheduled. People with no reservation were seated before people with a reservation.

    Came on Christmas Eve. Reservations for 7, our table was ready for us when we arrived a few minutes early. It was my daughter's birthday and we were out celebrating. Everything was perfect and fun! Scott was our waiter and he was awesome. He made great suggestions and service was perfect. I had shrimp and grits which was delish and 3 people had the Reuben which they all loved too. My daughter had baked chicken breast, broccoli, and cheese grits and ate every morsel. Atmosphere upbeat, it is a sports bar after all. We had a wonderful Christmas Eve and birthday dinner. We will definitely be back.

    Have enjoyed Hudson's during a number of holidays. Food has been unusually good for the type of restauran,t which prompted us to try it again. This time the food was mediocre to poor in flavor and preparation. Service was pleasant but scattered and unorganized (somewhat understandable for a holiday). Wine was good.

    This was our first time at Hudson Grille. We heard good things about the one in Brookhaven. We were not impressed. They did not have our Open Table reservation and the greeters were both arrogant and dismissive towards us. They did end up seating us in a nice booth. The beer selection was good. Our food was good. I was expecting it to be a bit more upscale and not so loud. It is simply a sports bar! Like many restaurants in Alpharetta there were kids running around everywhere . . . We go out to get away from kids (my wife teaches school all week). Service was good. Food was good. We may go back for a casual weeknight meal, but not for a date night!

    This place is like Chuckie Cheese on steroids. I truly think the number of children outnumbered adults. Felt like parents just bring the kids to have the video games 'babysit' while their parents eat and drink. Food wasn't too bad - meatloaf was tasty, however the herb chicken, which was our server's recommendation was dry and tasted like cardboard. Alcoholic drinks were on special, and were watered down. Our server was good in the beginning of our meal, but waned towards the end. Too many tables and not enough staff. I won't be going back.

    We were in town for the NCAA Golf National Championship and went to the Hudson Grille to celebrate a win in the semi-finals! (Bama went on to win the whole thing...Roll Tide). Hudson Grille was fun, loud (but not too loud) and had great food. Our waitress was exceptional. She suggested great things off of the menu and had a great personality. I would go back there! My husband got meat load, I got a turkey avocado sandwich with sweet potato fries and this yummy marshmallow dipping sauce! We had delish Fat Tire beer. It was a success!

    The food and atmosphere are consistently typical of your run-of-the-mill neighborhood bar. Nothing knock-your-socks-off fancy, but nothing too terrible either. It's the service that makes Hudson Grille hit or miss. We go about once a week and very frequently had poor service, and I'm a pretty generous grader when it comes to neighborhood wait staff. When I discovered I could make reservations AND request particular waiters, our experience here has turned from hit-and-miss to excellent.

    It's amazingly predictable how much better a restaurant is when you don't have to worry about the service. Made a reservation and requested to be seated in the section of the one waiter that we've never had any issues with. Hudson was able to accomodate the request and we had a very enjoyable evening. Big shout out to Tom!

    Again, another visit with subpar service. On nights we have Tom (I believe his name is) we settle in for a great night out. Any other night however, we can expect to send our orders back (once they eventually come) and enjoy them with an empty glass of whatever is was we were drinking that hasn't been re-filled. Also, on multiple occasions (past time included) handing your waiter a gift card along with your credit card indicates you'd like your whole meal charged and a printout with the balance of the card, rather than using the card and charging the remaining balance.

    This was my first time at Hudson Grille and I was dissapointed. I had heard great things from friends but things did not meet my expectations when I stopped in for a late dinner last night. I will say the best part about my visit was the spinach dip. It was AMAZING. The corn chowder had no flavor and barely anything in it. The herbed chicken was dry, broccoli was not cooked, and mac n cheese had no flavor. Waitress was kind of slow. Took a while to get drinks. My friends didn't get their beers until they finished eating. I appreciated the manager handeling things in the long run but I wish it hadn't come to that. I will give them another chance in the future but will probably just sit at the bar and order wings to be on the safe side.

    We've been to Hudson Grille quite a few times. Food is good enough, variety and quality, but we've consistently had problems with service. Waitresses seem to come and go and none are particularly efficient or effective. Waited 40 minutes for our checks this past week and weren't visited at all after our food arrived. In the past we've had orders completely wrong and waitresses seemingly just disappear into thin air on a regular basis. We had one waiter when we sat over in the bar half of the restaurant that was excellent but more often than not when we're seated in the dining room, our server is less than impressive.

    Its a sports bar and grill type of place, and is fine when that is what you are looking for. I would go back if I wanted to watch a game or get a casual drink and a burger. It is not a good choice for an evening with friends for conversation over dinner.
