The service was excellent and the restaurant was spotless. We had wanted to try this nearby restaurant and decided to try it for lunch. We both had sandwiches. A steak sandwich and the marinated pork sandwich, and both were excellent. The waiter, Antonio, brought bread and olives which gave us the same feeling as being in Lisbon. We will be... More

Came in on Sunday, 03/19, for an early supper. The place was packed! I had forgotten about the special Easter Pig Roast!! I had some wine standing up at the bar served by Toze and waited about 15 minutes for a bar seat while watching soccer. Started with the Shrimp Ajillos (garlic, lemon & peppers). I had a new entree... More

I ate here last night with my wife and (adult) sons. Nice quiet atmosphere with excellent service. I had the Azorean Style Fish Stew. It was delicious with different fish and shellfish and shrimp. Similar to a Cioppino. It is available with either boneless fish or not. My wife had the Salmon On Portuguese Clay, a seasoned salmon baked in/on... More

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!
