“Needs new management”
Reviewed 5 July 2013 via mobile

This place used to be tops in Wausau. Now it's a cellar dweller. The service was very slow, the food was cold and tasteless. They cut back on the portion sizes, and no longer give out tootsie rolls. Avoid if you can. Positive reviews in the last couple years were likely written by management.

Thank you for your feedback. I am very sorry your experience wasn't good and I would like to learn more about it (when you came in, who your server was, etc). Please call me at 715-849-8586 when you have an opportunity. For the record though, we do still offer tootsie pops at the door and no manager, employee, or affiliated party has ever written a false review for our company. Hope to hear from you soon!

“Eh....not what it used to be.”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

We were enjoying a Sunday drive and had visited this Hudson's several years ago when we came through Wausau, so we decided to stop again. We were not impressed this time.

At 2 in the afternoon, it took an unusually long time for the hostess to even greet/seat us. Our waitress was prompt in taking our drink orders and we ordered our food along with the drinks. The drinks came immediately.

I had ordered a BLT, hold the mayo. The sandwich came as ordered, but I was shocked by the appearance. The bread was not toasted. It wasn't white however. It looked like it had been painted with a bit of butter, very yellowy. It was also as flat as a DVD. It housed a few slices of bacon, one slice of tomato and maybe, maybe two strips of bacon. Sure it tasted like a BLT, but it was aesthetically unappealing. My husband's burger was prepared to his liking and was a nice thick burger. We both had the coleslaw as a side, which was the typical small container. It was ok.

Our waitress was pleasant, but I really doubt we'd go back to Hudson's.

“Ermergherd!”
Reviewed 20 June 2013 via mobile

Stopped at Hudsons for a bite for lunch, had never been before. Friendly staff, great service, great menu. Met a new friend, Ben :) Great hard working kid. No quirks or gimmicks here, which was a nice departure from all the other chains around here. We thouroughly enjoyed. Try the desserts, or a shake! Best on tap beer selection around. Noticed as we were leaving "family owned and operated." Kudos to them, there arent enough places like that around.

“Good burgers, that's it”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

At first instance it looks like a cool place. Inside is kind of boring and not as cool as you expected, but still is better than an applebees.

Burgers were good, really big and tasty. Fries were regular.
Waiters served just ok.

Prices are regular. I wouldn't come back, sorry.
