My girlfriend and I went to the Hudson on our first night in Rotterdam. We didn't reserve a table but they still managed to accommodate us as they had plenty of outdoor seating. The staff were very polite and attentive, although 3-4 different people asked us if our food was ok etc which felt a bit too eager.

However, any problems we may have had with over-attentive staff melted away with the burgers. I went for 'the famous Hudson burger' with added pickles and it was, without a doubt, the best burger I have ever tasted. Every part of the meal was perfect - the chips were fluffy inside and crunchy outside; the coleslaw was homemade and delicious.

I really cannot recommend the Hudson enough - very reasonable prices for very tasty food!

My overall opinion of my experience here was good. The atmosphere was pleasant. The burger I had was to die for. Only thing that bugged me about this place was that the waitress apparently couldn't be bothered to walk around the table to take the orders which meant that we had to yell across the room. On top of that she had a look on her face that gave me the impression that she was bothered about something. Probably the worst waitress I've ever had at any establishment. Her colleagues all seemed to do a great job though from what I could tell.

2 of us went to Husdon's on a Friday night. Firstly, the interior looks great, the ambience is good. When we entered, it was a bit unclear if someone was going to greet us at the door. Eventually a girl in an outdoor jacket who was seated at the bar took us upstairs, there someone else took over and then again someone else. I think in all, we gave our booking name to three people. Once seated, we were then not seen to for about 15 minutes, which meant it was a long time before we received a drink. We had Caiprinhas. Nice but not very strong. We ordered Nachos to start, which came fairly promptly and were fairly good. Guacamole and salsa were good, I would have liked more cheese and jalapeños. Once the starters were cleared it took another 15 minutes to get our meals. At neither point were we asked if we wanted more drinks. The waitress delivered our two burgers, a Hudson and an American Classic. She said she'd be back with the fries. She did not return. We tried to get the attention of a member of staff, but without any luck. We finished our burgers and small amount of salad and coleslaw and sat waiting. Eventually someone cleared our plates at which point we pointed out we had not received our fries. She quickly apologised and the fries eventually arrived. We did receive an apology and complimentary coffee which went some way to making up for the error. The burger had a good flavour, the pat tie was cooked well, and the fillings good. I found the Hudson dressing on my Hudson burger to be tasty but too runny, as it was pouring all over my hands. The base of the bun was also a little too crispy. I found the salad and coleslaw fine, but a little on the small side, and unfortunately there are no side dishes on the menu to order. I would have maybe liked to see onion rings, extra toppings for the burgers, maybe a side salad. The fries were a little over salted. They were also quite hollow, not sure if this was down to the slightly odd shape. I think traditional skinny fries, or skin on fries, or chunky thick cut fries would be a better option. The desserts were also a missed opportunity. Only cheesecake or ice-cream. Maybe other options would have tempted me to spend more money.
Overall I would recommend this place, it's great to see this type of restaurant opening in Rotterdam, but I would like to see some improvements in the service, like maybe allocating certain tables to the waiting staff, and tweaks to the menu.

Staying at Inntel Hotel round the corner and just wondered past and looked at the menu and saw that they do veggie burgers and bacon from the vegetarian butchers so veggie partner was very happy. Hard thing to find! Meat for me also good. I had a chicken burger which was more of a baguette but lovely and very tasty. Amazing light and airy fries too. Nice restaurant and good atmosphere and brilliant staff.
