I was recently home in Lake Travis for a week and got to dine at one of the best restaurants in the area Hudson’s On the Bend. This long time favorite country fine dining restaurant is a great choice for any special occasion. We celebrated my bestie’s birthday Raven that night and got to sample some delicious dishes.
The food here is really unique and is a combination of French and Southern cusines. They have items like venison, quail, elk, and duck on the menu along with classic cuts of beef and salmon. Hudson’s loves to use seasonal and local fresh ingredients too. When we were there they had pumpkin bread for the holidays and even a Beef Wellington dish.
The portions of food here are not typical tiny fine dining portions, but are large and generous. The cuts of meat here are no joke and any meat lover leave with a meat hangover. The lighter fare we tried here was equally delicious. My salmon pictured above was perfectly cooked and my mom had a duck and scallop dish that was divine.
Hudson’s is definitely on the pricier side and reserved for special occasions and holidays. Don’t let the laid back country atmosphere fool you because the food here is stellar and every bite is worth the hefty price tag.
