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.

Highly recommend their Sunday Brunch - cook to order molted brought by your server, fresh mini waffles' breakfast meats, 3 entrees plus carving station. The desserts are small bites which allow you to sample several without feeling guilty. Price for Adults is an unbelievable $14.95 per person - Definitely will return with friends.

Wanted to treat a young friend to a special luncheon as she prepares to leave the area. This was perfect. spouse and I have been here once for the fabulous Sunday brunch, but this was the first time for lunch. Excellent! My only hesitation is that the French onion soup is a bit sweet for my taste. Our waiter was... More

The view was great, and a nice surprise of jazz duo playing in the background. We got seated right away. We had great appetizers. I decide to have a salad for my entree. The "new" spinach salad with watermelon and grilled shrimp was a big disappointment. The salad contained huge chunks of watermelon and five TINY grilled shrimp! It did... More

sunday buffet on the hudson river was a nice treat--pretty good food, pleasing variety to choose from, a lovely setting and a fair price-can't do much better. many people have discovered this restaurant so reservations are a good idea.

We stopped by for a Friday happy hour and were happy we did. The outdoor deck bar had great views of the Hudson. We had great service from the bar staff. We had a few light appetizers and enjoyed them both. The drink specials were a good value during the happy hour. We would definitely make this a weekly stop... More
