Hudson’s On The Docks
Review by: Roadfood Team
Only the freshest seafood
Most of the seafood, especially the shrimp, is fresh from Hudson’s own docks immediately behind the restaurant. If you are lucky, you’ll see a Hudson’s shrimp boat unload its catch; watch the sorting process as the shrimp make their way to the restaurant tables. It does not get much fresher than that!
What should I eat at Hudson’s On The Docks?
The very fresh shrimp are served steamed, broiled, fried, or stuffed. She-crab soup is thick and extremely flavorful, topped with an ever so slight slick of sherry to round out the taste. Oysters on the half shell are priced daily (on our 10/07 visit they were $8.50 a dozen) and they too were fresh, full of flavor, and visually appealing. If the menu seems too extensive and all items seem to have equal appeal, try the “Can’t Decide” appetizer (oysters Hudson, oysters Rockefeller, stuffed mushroom, clams casino, and blackened scallops) for a wide sampling.
When to go to Hudson’s On The Docks
There is nothing on the menu that would disappoint and the only regret is that there is no way to try everything on a single visit. We solved this in part by coming back the following night to continue our exploration. The restaurant is a great find and is obviously well-known to the locals. Come early or late for an excellent seafood experience.
Hudson’s is owned by Brian and Gloria Carmines and the tradition started by J.B Hudson Jr. in 1967 continues. *Original post by Cliff Stehle*
