    This was the wrong choice for our purpose of a business meeting. I guess that was our fault for picking the place for such a purpose but we didn't think it would be an issue. There was one guy who wasn't our waiter and we asked if he could please turn down the music because some people on our team were very soft spoken and he very rudely replied, "It's a sports bar so....". While we understand that this is a sports bar, I think he could have brought his point across in a much better way. Probably not gonna have business meetings there anymore.

    Waited 15 minutes to be approached by server. Finally I asked another server to get ours. She finally came. 30 minutes later when our food came, one persons simple sandwich didn't come out. Again, 10 minutes later I had to grab a person to get it...since my party was about finished. The restaurant was less than half full.....so it wasn't that....there were servers standing around. Just a group of very poor servers and employees.

    The location is convenient but the food is subpar. They were out of two items that we ordered and ran out of a beer that one of my friend's was drinking. This means that they actually served him the last beer of Blue Moon in the keg. The restaurant also spelled pretty bad and was not too clean. Our waitress was great and I could tell she was quite embarrassed with everything.

    Went to Hudson Grill before a Falcons game. Did they not know there was a football game 100 yards away?? Kitchen was timely but service and bar were horrible. Only 3 bartenders (one of whom was a manager) at a sports bar on a night with an NFL game going on across the street?? Waited 20 minutes to be greeted by our server and were there over an hour and drinks never came. Waitress was pathetic and we had to flag her down to ask her for anything. She would walk by table and avoid eye contact. All in all a terrible experience. Will eat at the food court next time I go to a Falcons game.

    My husband and I were going to a concert downtown Atlanta and wanted to try one of the restaurants close by. We found the Hudson Grille on another website. People had good things to say. This turned out great for us. It was only a 5 minute walk from our venue and the food was great. We made reservations, but didn't need them for 530pm on a Wednesday. We were served right away and offered a nice selection of appetizers and drinks from the bar. Our server was very friendly and had great suggestions. The menu has everything from burgers to the Herb Grilled Chicken, which is what I ordered. Very tasty. My husband enjoyed the wings. Then, to top it off.......half price desserts on Wednesday!!!!

    Went here during restaurant week; I think they forgot they were part of it. The waitress wasn't familiar with restaurant week, they didn't have a special menu available to review, and we got 2 different stories of what restaurant week options were. I just don't think this restaurant was organized for the event. Also, the waitress was nice, but very forgetful and not up on details of what's within each food item. I don't necessarily have to go back to this place of establishment unless others want to.

    The food was good and the service was great. Excellent server who helped to make the dining experience a good one. A BIG disappointment that you don't validate parking. Visited McCormick and Schmidt's the week before and received validated parking which is right on your doorsteps. I would recommend the restaurant but will warn my friends about parking.

    The Hudson Grille was great for an early afternoon meal. The atmosphere is a sports bar with lots of TVs, & noise. They were busy when we stopped, but the hostess honored our reservation. The only complaint we have is the time it took to get our waiter's attention for service.

    My co-workers and I met up at the Hudson Grille - Downtown Atlanta for a lunch gathering on a Wednesday afternoon .... I'm sure it won't be our last visit. We each chose something different from the menu and were pleasantly surprised to see that desserts were 1/2 off -- which topped off a great meal (my red velvet cake was DELICIOUS)!! Our group of 6 had an 11:45am reservation and our table was ready when we arrived. Wonderful lunch spot, the food is great and it didn't take long for our meals to get prepared.

    Good dining choice for lunch and to watch sports events- they have many tv's throughout the restaurant. Location is perfect for downtown attractions such as Phillips Arena, CNN and Centennial Park. Easy to walk to and parking is also convenient. Food and service were good- waitstaff is attentive. Although it is loud inside the restaurant- even at lunchtime when it is not so busy.

    The noon crowd was thin and the servers were fast. Food came out fast and was as described. Typical sports bar fare but well done and no problems. If sports event in town at Philips Arena probably a zoo. Rainy day so no one outside but in spring could be very pleasant.

    We ate here before the Hawks game and it took forever for a server to make it to our table. We were there 10 minutes before anyone came to take our order and that's after we asked another waiter if our table had a server. Management claimed they were busy and to bare with them. The place didn't seem that busy to me. The food was okay! The drink was okay! Not impressed and won't be back!

    The main reason we would return to Hudson Grille would be if we were attending a Hawks or Falcons game - for those the location is great. The food was passable - not particularly noteworthy, but more than adequate: a step above a decent sports bar. We had a new waiter who was confused and a bit addled, but that will change with time. We were glad to have had the opportunity to check this place out thanks to its participation in Atlanta Restaurant Week.

    We wanted a quiet, let down from a hectic day, quick sandwich experience and that is not Hudson Grille. Our mistake. It's a loud, lots of TV screens sports bar. Our server, Byron was polite and appologetic for slow service, but slow service was not his mistake as the kitchen was pushed. Our sandwiches were good. One order of sweet potato fries was cold, but Byron instantly brought out a replacement of piping hot fries. We will come back to Hudson Grille for another meal keeping in mind that it's not a quiet place.

    The food and service were great. We had a group of 12, and the food came out quickly and was well-prepared. The atmosphere was good for a relaxing meal with friends. It was a little loud, which made conversation difficult at first, but we eventually adjusted. I would definitely recommend the Hudson Grille Downtown.
