    Not All Waitresses Have Pet Awareness

    Definitely puppy friendly. Our waitress was only human aware, but there were a few others that offered water and were puppy friendly. No wait for Friday lunch. Beer battered fish was OK. Blackened shrimp was great.

    Dog friendly, great food, strong drinks

    the food was great, the drinks were strong, and the staff made sure our pup felt welcome. It does get very busy, so you may want to call ahead. we ended up grabbing a seat at the bar, but we had a great time!

    Dog friendly and delicious

    The seafood is fresh and delish! You have to try it. View from deck is nice. This was our best meal by far in Hilton Head. Wait staff and owner are very friendly and service was excellent.

    Great location!

    Great location on the water. Large back deck with plenty of dog friendly seating. Waiter brought a personal tub of icy water for each dog.

    Fun place with pup!

    Great atmosphere on water, especially at sunset. We enjoyed seeing dolphins. Food was good; but shrimp and grits was just ok.

    Great Spot For Fido!

    Dogs are welcome on the deck! It’s a happening spot. They will bring your pup a bucket of ice water! In regards to the last reviewer who didn’t even eat at Hudson’s... 1. They never take reservations so he is mistaken there which makes me question the authenticity of his review. 2. Yes, dogs are only allowed outside and the seats are barstool height!

    Reservations? Check First

    We made a reservation and explicity said we had a dog. When we arrived we were told the tables where a dog could be were the "high top" tables and they were a first come, first served" basis. The restaurant was very busy and it was anybody's guess as to how long it might take to get a table. A table that would not be comfortable for us or for your pup. We left so I won't comment on the food and we won't be returning and nor would I recommend the restaurant with this policy.

    Touristy, Crowded, Okay

    Very crowded, even on a chilly evening. Long waits for seating. High tops for dog seating, which is not ideal. Staff tries, but is completely overwhelmed. Food is decent. Drinks are decent. Not all it’s cracked up to be and a bit ostracizing for pup. Very popular with tourists. Seating is on the dock, where you can see docked shrimp boats. Famous free hush puppies are nice during your waits for service while seated, but very greasy on the tummy. Dogs can get water if you ask, when and if you can get access to a server.

    Great Atmosphere And Food

    Stopped here on our post holiday mini vacay. Came for lunch on a Saturday. It wasn’t too busy(end of December) so we had no problems finding a table by the water. Our waiter was awesome and kind. He brought water out for Cash, a bowl of Hushpuppies and went over their daily specials. Hubby had fresh local peel-n-eat shrimp and I had the blackened shrimp. The Hushpuppies are some of the best I have ever eaten. The blackened shrimp was awesome and hubby said his shrimp were awesome as well. This is definitely one to put on your list.

    Super yummy and very pup friendly!

    We went here on our Anniversary trip 2 years ago and loved it so much we plan on it being our first food stop on HHI for our upcoming anniversary trip. Great service, ocean to plate seafood and they’re very welcoming if our 2 shihtzu; providing them with cold water and ear scratches. Can’t wait to go back! Best crab cakes, oysters, shrimp, fish and the list goes on. We stay a while and leave absolutely stuffed. Good cocktails well. Highly recommended!
