Attended a rehearsal dinner on July 4th, and it could not have been more disappointing. I know the groom's parents spent thousands of dollars on this event and a great deal of time planning this event with Shadows on the Hudson. There was one waitress attempting to serve drinks to over 60 people. The appetizers were served to some tables... More

Our niece & nephew took us to the Shadows for lunch by boat. Interesting being able to dock on the river and walk up to the restaurant. It was busy, but we were seated quickly, service was rapid, friendly and very good. The Cobb Salad was one of the best I have ever had. Very pleasant atmosphere. Everyone was cordial... More

We held the GLSEN Hudson Valley 2nd Annual Fundraiser at Shadows last night and the service was great. Issac Hasbrouck the general manager was there making sure the event ran smoothly and exactly the way we had planned, he was extremely attentive every step of the way. The service and staff were also great. A group of us stayed after... More

I had a big group dinner on July 4t and everything was perfect. The staff were very welcoming, friendly, and accommodating. Though the first person we were in contact with was not responsive, Isaac was extremely responsive over the phone and email! The timing of the food was spot on, and holding it for us while my party watched the... More

Took a bus tour to NYC and we stopped here. There were 3 other buses there that evening. Service was very good. Our server took drink orders, brought bread and salad. Our entrees were covered when they arrived and were hot. I had a tasty stuffed flounder and my husband had the beef entree, Very tasty. The restaurant was very... More

Our second time there and it was all and better than the first time. We usually go for 6pm reservations and sit outside and watch the sun go down behind the mountain. The atmosphere is casual yet it has a hint of elegance. Very busy place but once your seated you don't want to leave. The food is very good... More

Visiting friends in NY....decided girls' night out at Shadows. Couldn't have been better choice! Scallops, crab cakes, sea bass fresh as can be and YUMMY! Salads were crisp/fresh and sides all great as well. So nice to see some good things never change! Locals love this place and tourists/visitors should not miss it!

This is casual elegant dining! The whole patio was open to the breeze on Friday nite but there were accordion glass windows that could be closed if the weather turned nasty or if they had to turn the A/C on. The very large area would be serviced by the A/C. Now to the food. My husband I decided to order... More

I have eaten at Shadows many times since it opened. The views are the best anywhere in the Hudson Valley. However, the food continues to disappoint. This week I went, only because my grandson wanted to go, and had the WORST lunch. I am warning you!! DO NOT ORDER THE SHRIMP TACOS -- the worst thing I have ever ordered... More

I read the mixed reviews while planning a vacation to the area and was not going to dine here but I am so glad I changed my mind! We dined here on July 4th in anticipation of the fireworks, just outside on the Hudson River. We were so surprised to be seated (without reservations) outside on the terrace and the... More
