By the looks of this place, I didn't really want to eat here, so I just did paint nite upstairs. Menu didn't even temp me, and the smells reallu kind of turned me off. Sorry, I can't give a food review.

The food is Ok, but at times to much better or oil. We have been twice and the food is inconsistent. The shrimp was great the first time and not so good the second time.

After a very busy day we were hungry and wanted to try something different. We looked for a place in our route back to the hotel and Old Schoolhouse Pub & Restaurant (Portuguese food) was our selection. We were treated as very special guests. The food was exquisite (fish in a mashed potato bed and vegetables), well presented in a... More

We live in Hudson and never knew about this place! Thank you Trip Advisor- without TA we never would have found the Old Schoolhouse. It's a great spot. We will be back.

This restaurant seems to be a bit off the beaten path & we never would have known about it had I not found a coupon. When we arrived the dining room was completely empty (the bar in the adjacent room was busy though) and we had second thoughts about staying, but boy were we glad we did! We started with... More

The food is excellent. Generous portions. We have eaten there many times in the dining room. The fish is perfectly cooked and the Churasco is one of the better ones I have tried. Friendly service and great mousse for dessert

Generous portions and very good value at this home-style Portuguese restaurant just off the main strip in Hudson. We enjoyed the outdoor seating. Easy drinking wines are especially good value. Varied menu. We enjoyed a fresh fish dish and a chicken dish. Garlic sauces are delicious!

We found ourselves in Hudson on a Friday night, hungry, as the sun set. Found the Old Schoolhouse Pub in TripAdvisor and gave it a try. Doesn't look like much from outside, but inside it's a warm, friendly Portuguese restaurant. A real hidden jewel. We were seated right away in the plain dining room. Just wood tables set around the... More

One of my favorite places in Hudson. Being Portuguese, I can testify that they serve authentic Portuguese cuisine. The food tastes like home to me, particularly the small steak, the kale soup and the octopus in olive oil, or the typical espresso at the end of the day. The bartenders and owner are extremely nice and they all (also) speak... More

Don't let the name or the name or the building itself throw you. Walk in and enjoy some of the best Portuguese home cooking outside of Lisbon or Porto. Also, this is not fast food. It seems that orders are cooked when ordered, so don't expect to be in and out fast. We had the Azorean Fish Stew for two... More
