I first ate here in Fall 2016 with my wife. Steak and sides were pretty good. Decent wine list and cocktails. Had lunch again today - interesting menu. The onion soup and lobster bisque were very good. View is very nice on a sunny day. I would say the location and view bring it from 3.5 stars to 4.

My wife and I popped into this historic restaurant on a fall November Sunday afternoon for some coffee and cakes. The restaurant is in the building which was built in 1832. To go with the coffee, we ordered desserts instead of cakes which they did not offer. My wife liked her creme brulee and I loved the rich Hudson House... More

Tasty food, nice ambiance. Great spot to stop in during the holidays. Nice river views. On street parking. Quaint small town setting.

The food is good, a bit old fashioned, but great for a family wanting a break. Service is friendly and our server took a photo of us all while perched on a chair - beyond the call. I would recommend this to adult groups needing a break. The restaurant is right on the river and a bit separated from the... More

We went here for Thanksgiving dinner. Sat at the bar while we waited for our table. The bartender was just about the rudest person I have ever met! I'm sorry you had to work on Thanksgiving Day but don't take it out on us! Really RUINED the experience! And the foods not so great either...

We were a party of 8 with reservations, celebrating an anniversary. Service was terrible,we seems to be ignored while they took care of the other room, we had 2 small children with us so the long waits in between were a problem, our meals were very disappointing, chicken was like a frozen entree grocery store quality, coffee was cold, and...

Spinach omelet with (CANNED!) crab meat and fried potatoes, crab cakes appetizer - very disappointing, never again. The white linen tablecloth and semi-fancy attitude of the place had fooled me into presuming a great quality food... maybe it's just my high standards... I understand, high tourist spot, nobody cares as long as it looks like food. I don't like give... More

I've never been disappointed with Hudson House. This is the only real "white table cloth experience" in Cold Spring that I know. The food is always excellent, starting with the warmed rolls/bread brought to your table immediately with arrival of your waitperson greeting you, providing water in your glasses. This, after the friendly greeter shows you to your table. (on... More

We have only dined on Sunday brunch here. But many times. Delicious! The popovers (served when you sit) are worth the trip alone.

The filet mignon eggs benedict was one of the best I have had...filet was top quality and egg preparation just right....we also had crab and spinach omelette which was equally impressive. Brunch is served with homemade popovers which is a treat and very hard to find. Service is attentive and very friendly. Historic building with great river views. Don't miss... More
