Eat The Freshest Fish At Hudson's Seafood House on the Docks

Nya Crea

One of the most characteristic places I've seen is the Hudson's Seafood House on the Docks in Hilton Head, South Carolina.

The fish you eat in this restaurant is caught every morning, sourced by the owners of this place, so you know there is nothing fresher!

Hudson's Seafood House also has a very nice view of the water, which is perfect for those who are looking for a place to relax and enjoy the views.

The restaurant was once an oyster factory that was built in 1912 so you know this place has indeed lots of history!


It has been a family-owned business and originally started as a seafood processing plant, which used to be very popular in the early years.

In the old days, most customers on Hilton Head Island were weekending and tourists.

Although the restaurant still does a lot of business during the weekends, it is almost completely full during the week.

It's great that there are lots of people on vacation in Hilton Head Island eating their favourite seafood every day!

The restaurant is also pretty big, with a seating capacity of up to 345 people and on a regular summer night, it hosts up to 1000 people!

When you first enter Hudson's Seafood House on the Docks, you will notice many pictures hanging on the walls. The pictures are old, and show the history of the restaurant.

Some of the old pictures also show a lot of oysters that have been processed in the previous years.

Just imagine, how much history there is within this restaurant!

It will be very obvious to say that their speciality is fish! In particular, shrimps, which are caught daily and served on your plate fresher than ever.


Talking about fresh, here's where you can be delighted with the freshest oysters you've ever eaten, harvested, shucked, and brought to your plate in the same day.

If you happen to try this restaurant their Shrimp po' Boy is their best dish in my opinion.

Over 3,000 gallons of oysters and 70,000 pounds of shrimp are consumed annually. Over 450,000 raw oysters are shucked fresh on the premises. The Hudson's family fams their very own local oysters and cultivate fresh soft-shell crabs. Hudson's Seafood House has also a very nice wine list, which will give your dinner party a special touch!

If you happen to be on the north-east side of Hilton Head Island, you will see a lot of big restaurants and you will also see Hudson's Seafood House.
