The Hudsons have been in the seafood business for over four generations here on Hilton Head Island. It began in the 1800s with Ransom Hudson. Ransom Hudson’s son Benjamin, who was also the local magistrate and postmaster, ran three oyster factories here until his death in 1954. Benjamin Hudson’s son, Benny Hudson, ran two of the oyster factories, docked 24 shrimp trawlers, and owned and operated several trawlers himself. Benny Hudson built Hudson’s Seafood Restaurant, which today is owned by Brian Carmines. Benny’s wife Barbara, her mother Hilda, and daughter Tonya are carrying on the Hudson tradition, selling wholesale and retail seafood. Granddaughter Hannah helps make deviled crab – four generations under one roof. Stop by and see what is fresh today!
