Overpriced burgers and extremely slow service. Burgers are average, but good offering of craft beers. Beware all sides are extra.

Ok, be patient your going to wait for service, nice beers cannot fault that and their milkshakes are solid but I've had better. Burger was ok, ribs were pre cooked and served cold. Just do yourself a favor and go to Gibson's, overall just a better experience. Over priced and the main dishes on the menu does not deliver, save... More

After a long hike up Lion's Head we had worked up quite the appetite, and we are glad we chose Hudson's to eat. The burgers at Hudsons never disappoint and the service is always good! Would definitely go back whether it be the Johannesburg or Cape Town Branch.

We drove from Cape Town Stadium to visit Hudsons as all the other restaurants close where full with all the 7's visitors. Hudsons in claremont came highly recommended and I can see why.

My husband ordered a rock shandy and after swearing that it does not contain alcohol as many patrons order it... More

I just wanted to say thanks to Danielle for the amazing service last night in rectifying the mistakes with our drinks and the wait for food. Danielle sorted us our with new drinks and even threw in complimentary tequila's with no hassle at all.

Thank Stephen B
