I’m afraid the food just wasn’t the quality we were expecting based on the prices charged.

The 40-day aged New York strip was served in a pool of grease and had a high percentage of gristle. I couldn’t even eat it, it was just a really poor cut of meat.

The walleye was greasy and rather tasteless.

The butternut squash had a very odd presentation. The dish itself is quite small (especially for an entree), and when you order it with chicken, instead of having chicken intermingled with the dish, a dry, sautéed chicken breast is just placed on top.

Mashed potatoes were fine, as were the asparagus and green beans.

We have become Mallory's frequent fliers! The food is amazing! Well thought out apps, and a really nice menu overall. Steak night is our favorite. The dry aged meat is grass fed. It's aged 40 days for amazing texture and flavor. Well worth the price, especially on steak night! It is perfectly prepared, and there are so many side choices! You can't go wrong at Mallory's!

Service started fine but went down hill after apos arrived. Server never checked back except to drop off entrees. We ordered two steaks MR and one came out well. After almost 10 min of not seeing the server had to get up and find her to ask for a new steak
No drink refills offered until after we were done eating even though empty glasses on side of table. We would have ordered more during meal. She offered a free dessert because of the steak. Server only had 3 two top tables. No steps of service followed.

Food was delicious. Nice Valentine’s Day menu.
Service was great although slightly rushed due to the holiday.
Ordered prime rib.
Server asked if he wanted 1/2 inch or inch.
Husband said inch.
Would have been nice if server had mentioned that it would be double the menu price. Or it should be included on the menu pricing. Also menu stated prime rib came with one side.
Got charged for the side. Server seemed too busy for us to hassle getting the check fixed.
Bar downstairs was great! Enjoyed the live music.

The speak easy is adorable!! Loved it. My father turns 90 in the spring would love to bring home to the speak easy.

We checked in an hour early. Told we could not get in until our reservation time. Which we were prepared to go get drinks some where. Sent to the speak easy bar downstairs. Great cocktails. Well designed space!

However, they forgot we were down there. Never came and got us for our reservations. Had to go out the back door ; back in the front door, where the hostess looked confused that we were there for our reservation. Original check in 6:15, reservation time 7:30.

We sat down at 7:40-dinner arrived at 8:40. Apologies were made for the long wait. There are only 20 tables in the restaurant. The wine list is lacking quality wines. And we got a 2oz pour. Felt like we were at a wine tasting event.

Tomahawk pork-chop was delicious. The dried ribeye- lacking seasoning and juice- ordered medium rare. Should be juice. Homemade tater tots- ok.

Would go back for the speak easy alone. Food was good not great.

It was oddly cold in the bar area as we sat at in a booth. Service was great...French Onion Soup was piping hot and nearly perfect. Steak bites were not good. Way over cooked and tasted stale. Manhatten's were good. Overall, an okay experience. Will go back to try prime special again...and hopefully again after that.

-No water glasses available for 25-minutes after being seated
-Ran out of baked potato on a very limited menu featuring steak
-Silverware came unwrapped
-Hair in guest mashed potato's
-Wine selection very poor

I have been there twice now and both times have been great!! I love the food and the beauty of the hole place. The date night dinner on sundays and wednesdays is amazing as well. You get a lot of great items for $75.00. I would recommend everyone goes here atleast once!!

Our reservation was at 11:15 am. We got there around 11:00, expecting to wait for a few minutes. We waited for 30 minutes. I heard the server multiple times mention they were slammed and trying to get caught up, which is not something the customer wants to hear. Once we got seated, it took over an hour to get our food. We finally ate at 12:30 pm -- for an 11:15 reservation. Very disappointing experience. There are many dining places in Hudson that have better service, especially for what you're paying at Mallory's. I would not recommend going here.

Got seated in back. There was a kids that were screaming which got really loud until they left. Food was just ok. I was expecting lot better food with more options. There special was 4 scallops. Overall ok. If your looking for a awesome meal this isn’t the place. I’d spend your money at other places like LOLO.

Great space, unfortunately the experience is crippled by a lack of leadership and VERY slow service.

We had a reservation for 8 to celebrate a birthday. We started on the rooftop where it took over an hour to get a round of drinks, appetizers and still no entree orders were taken. To be fair and knowing we are a large table we went to the main restaurant to order our meal. Again, service was lacking. One member of our party had to go up to the bar to bring the drinks back to our table. We had to grab silverware from nearby tables. And we had over 10 minutes delay between serving of the food for half the table.

Still trying to find the positive, our group elected to try out the opening night of their underground speakeasy. The space is beautiful, finally got a timely drink after ordering. Then the next problem developed. Their server went down and they could not give us our check so we could pay our tab. We waited. We waited some more. We asked the waitress again if we could get our check and we waited some more!

The continued delay was only made better by the arrival of the owner/general manager, Jason Johnson. When we expressed our desire to pay our tab and leave the establishment, Mr Johnson assured me he is not an “a$$ kissing bar owner”. I now understand the reason for the lack of timely service and attention to detail. Mr Johnson will be the demise of this restaurant. Which is truly unfortunate. It’s a great facility. If it had a real business leader the place could be a great place to enjoy in downtown Hudson.

Fortunately for Hudson there are many other tremendous restaurants and bars to frequent that one can easily skip past Mallory’s ... unless you like slow service and an owner that will curse at you.

Really beautiful rooftop setting with views of the river and park. Wonderful service! The food was great, steak tips are very nicely prepared although the horseradish sauce very watery and mild. However at the table next to us a couple ordered the bloody Mary pitcher with food, oh wow did that look amazing! See photo and do it for the experience! We had the fish tacos (very good!) and the French onion soup and French dip combo - delicious! The soup was delicious! Perfect broth.

It was my 1st time to Mallory's. It was an off night for the kitchen to be sure. Thinking they did not stock up on needed menu items. The Cobb salad was brown and lacked color and flavor. Missing many ingredients. The Lobster was large, but too died for my taste as I left with orange fingers! We sat outside and the patio is great. If we were inside the food would hopefully have been hot. The steak was perfect as were the beers. I would go back, but ask more questions on what was available as we overheard they were out of many menu items. It was an incredibly slow evening, so the staff was very attentive and fun, it's not their fault for lack of kitchen fixings

We loved the rooftop area and had wonderful appetizers there. The drinks were creative and we were served quickly. The food was solidly good, but one veggie burger, ordered as was stated in the menu, came surprisingly with no toppings. When we asked for the menu toppings to be brought out, it took a long time, we asked 2x, and we STILL did not get the toppings as stated in the menu. Dessert was very fresh and flavorful.

I would recommend it because the rooftop was a great place to have dinner. However, I feel the menu was pretty limited. Much of the options were higher priced than I would pay sitting in a bistro feeling area.

We have always enjoyed Mallory's, especially the rooftop, which we visited again this past weekend. The rooftop view is great, the setting is fun and service is always very good! However, the food quality is not always consistent. Also, prices have gone up substantially from last summer! It was a reasonably priced place to go, but now its overpriced in our opinion. If the food quality was over the top, it might be understandable, but we probably won't be visiting much in the future. There used to be a lot more options too on the rooftop menu. Why all the changes?

We arrived at 5:00 Thursday evening. The bartender was very helpful in seeing if we could get a rooftop table. Our server did an excellent job. She was friendly and gave us good descriptions about drinks and food. Once we made our order, the wait was reasonable. While there was background music, it was not loud. We could hear each other speak without having to raise our voices.

Food was good, service was horrible. Took over 20 minutes for a beer and a mixed drink. Appetizer came to the table before the drinks. Waitress seemed disinterested in doing her job.
Food was good with the exception of not bringing a knife for my steak (service issue) room echoes so it was very load to here people at your table.
Don’t think they could get me to come back or recommend this restaurant.

We got there at 4pm and had our choice of seats. The roof-top is open air and was warm the day we went so we decided to stay inside with the air conditioning. Lovely seating area and our selections from the lunch menu were very good. Our server was good too. Yes, I would recommend Mallory's to a friend. Just FYI - I was unable to upload any pictures with this review to OpenTable. Tried 4032x3024 (4MB) JPG and didn't work. Resized to 2000x1500 (1MB) JPG and that didn't work either.
