Shadows is a great place with a view of the Hudson. I have always enjoyed it when there. Bar is very nice and there is music scheduled at different times. There is also seating outside with a small outdoor bar too. Prices are alittle high especially on drinks but I do like the place. Again the view is great!!

I specifically went in for a special they had been advertising for a few weeks -- but was told it had expired. However, the waitstaff was able to make it happen. The meal was delicious -- especially the bread. I'm planning on taking my sister for her birthday in June. Which will be perfect because then we'll be able to... More

Always find the food and service to be very good, the restaurant is on the Hudson River and the views are amazing! There is outside seating in summer and a dock for those coming to the restaurant by boat. We always bring out of town friends there. My husband and I love to eat there year round and recommend it.

Shadows has a broad selection of dishes from salads to main courses, with something for everyone. It is a favorite of my elderly mother, not too noisy and the tables are not closely spaced. It is well executed, mostly standard fare. Staff is attentive, professional, and patrons are not rushed. Beautiful view of the Hudson from the window or outside... More

As always - Shadows for me is a "Feel good" place - provides a very nice ambiance with a touch of an upscale restaurant. The service is very good, although when it is busy (and in the weekend evenings it is always busy :) ) it is a little slow. The food presentation is very nice, though, in my opinion,... More

Well the view doesn't change here so it's worth going here if it's just for that. Anyway, pretty easy to get here off route 9 and plenty of parking. The restaurant is still nicely kept. There is a bar and inside seating. You can also sit out on the enclosed porch and get all the views. The noise in there... More

The arugula salad I got was highly acidic with little to compensate, old pistachios and poor quality cheese were included. The main course of sea bass was oily and over cooked, with grilled to death asparagus. Chocolate tart filled with salted caramel sounded nice, but the caramel was so salty it was inedible.

All around nice place, slightly pricey menu. But the food is good and the drinks are strong. Their brunch is good too.

Fantastic dining, great view of the river, terrific food and service. We especially enjoy good weather dining on the deck. Save room for their very berry shortcake, we stop in at times just for the shortcake and a drink during warm weather days to relax and enjoy the view.
