Description: Shadows on the Hudson is a waterfront restaurant located in Poughkeepsie...
Shadows on the Hudson is a waterfront restaurant located in Poughkeepsie, NY. Our building is perched on a cliff 40 feet above the Hudson River and just 50 feet from its eastern bank. This prime location affords us one-of-a-kind, truly grand views of the Mid-Hudson Bridge to the north and miles of open river to the south. The interior design of the restaurant sets Shadows apart from any other establishment in the area. Guests have five different dining areas to choose from. If you choose the casual and warm Sunset Room or the ultramodern Winter Room you will feel like you are dining in Manhattan or Vegas, while the Sunrise Deck and True River Rooms provide commanding views of the Hudson River. Shadows menu has a broad appeal with a focus on Seafood and Steaks. The goal of the menu was to create a place where families could afford to eat more than once a week and that would still appeal to couples out for a special night on the town. Shadows will also cater your small lunch or dinner party for groups of 20 - 100.

Sunday Brunch for $16.00 in the beautiful Hudson Valley overlooking the Hudson River. Great food, great service, great atmosphere, great prices. Can anyone ask for more?

I was there with a large group for an early dinner. We were shown to tables with the river view. Waitstaff was efficient and friendly. I had delicious steak with chocolate mousse for dessert. Loved this restaurant and will recommend it to friends. The venue is huge with a romantically lit curving bar and outdoor balcony seats.

I love this place for the view and the air of casual ease by the river. But the past 3 meals: 2 lunches and a dinner were dreadful! So bad was the first that I complained (the hamburger had turned and literally smelled bad) and a gift certificate issued. So I returned. Terribly mediocre despite opting for the waitress' recommendation.... More

Great meal! Great Service! I highly recommend Shadows on the Hudson! The Grilled Salmon and beet salad was delicious and my Day Boat Scallops were tender and flavorful! I ordered Vanilla Bean Crème Brûlée "to go" for dessert and they were concerned that decanting it "to go" ruins the presentation but I didn't care as it would still taste as... More

For ambience, view of the Hudson River AND food you should make a stop at this restaurant. Reservations highly recommended! Service, hosts and food of superb balance to your dining! I took a group of 50 with nothing but praises to this evening of dining!

All three in my party arrived at 8:15 pm and were told we had to wait a few minutes for a table. My party and I told the receptionist that we would go over to the bar to enjoy a... More

We had gone there after a wedding recently and decided to go to Shadows since it is right there. There was a bunch of us coming in at once and we headed straight for the bar. The girl with the really long brown hair saw us and rolled her eyes immediately. Not sure if I was the only one that... More

We had wonderful experience at Shadow's Sunday Brunch. The food and service were exceptional. Not only did we have great food, great service, we shared a great view of the scenic Hudson.
