Hudson’s Dockside does not take reservations & we learned the hard way not to wait till 6:30pm to eat. I.5 hour wait in soaring summer heat. Not fun. Eventually seated, we found the restaurant food to be outstanding but service between ordering & serving took way too long. We had a party of 12, with entree orders varying. This place was packed which I think accounted for the delays at every level.

We sat at the oyster bar during happy hour. oysters were between $2.00 to $2.75 a piece. Shrimp were $1 a piece. The BBQ shrimp is served with BBQ sauce (not really BBQ shrimp) but were fresh. Draft beer was 4.50. Flounder was 22.00. Service was pleasant but not too attentive. The char grilled oyster was the best deal at $1.50 each. It was fine but way too expensive for what you got. It's on the water and apparently a tradition.

We love Hudson's! We visit them at least once every time we are in hilton head. The service is top notch and the food is always fresh and very tasty. But the ambiance is what steals the show. As with most restaurants expect a lengthy wait, but just grab a cocktail and enjoy the views on the deck. The time will fly by. Highly recommend.

Stopped here for lunch today. Had some fresh raw Blue point oysters, fried and blackened shrimp, shrimp Po-Boy and crab cakes between the 4 of us. Everything. Was great. Service was great. A little loud inside but was too hot to sit outside. Recommended for sure.

My husband and I ate here on our last visit to Hilton Head Island. From this location, you can watch the sunset and enjoy the view. It was busy, but we didn’t have to wait long for a table. The food was just okay. The service however was very good. If I were to go again, I would request an outside table.
