Description: 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.

We came here for dinner and we were so happy with our visit. The ambience was wonderful, the staff friendly and the food was fantastic. Although it was night time and we couldn't see outside it was still a gorgeous view of the bridge. We had no complaints and are very satisfied with this place. Can't wait to have drinks... More

This was a fantastic restaurant that our friends took us to after walking across the Hudson River Bridge. It was large, airy and set right on the Hudson River. I had the pumpkin ravioli and it was delicious. Very professional wait staff.

Our first time at Shadows on the Hudson and will defenitely return. Reservations are a must! We went for the Sunday brunch, $14.95 for adults and $9.95 for children. A great variety of foods from your breakfast dishes to lunch...If you care for an omelette, you have to let your server know and they will bring it to your table,... More

A varied menu with something for everyone - meat, fish, pasta, etc. We had standing rib roast which was quite good and cooked just as we ordered. Very good and timely service by a very friendly wait staff. A wine list with good choices at lower and medium price points. A full bar. Open late. Free transportation to and from... More

A varied menu with something for everyone, delicious food, excellent service and convenient hours. Lots of appetizers, great bar and of course, a drop dead view of the Hudson

Beautiful view when they take the time to clean the windows. Food is average, at best, and no value for the price. Drinks are mainly ice in a tall thin glass. You can find beer food and drinks at other local restaurants.

A large and airy venue, with attentive staff. The food,was fair,e.g. The salmon was tasty, but the tuna was cold in the center. The pumpkin beer on draft was appreciated by the usually non beer drinker. Live subdued music was heard coming from the adjacent bar and lounge. Not gourmet food, but tolerable.

I had my sister's bachelorette party here and was very disappointed for the amount I paid. We had made reservations for the VIP service and the service was not that great. We were left sitting at the bar for an hour (even though we were on time) because they were not yet ready for us. Over the phone, I was... More

The mark of a really good restaurant, to me, is if the meal doesn't meet my high standards, they will fix it without fuss. My sea bass was a bit stringy and had cumin (you either love it or hate it) in a sauce. They took it off the bill, of course, without drama, and offered something else. I didn't... More
