Description: Shadows on the Hudson, the Hudson Valley's Premier Waterfront Dining, is 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 riverfront location affords us one-of-a-kind, truly grand views of the Mid-Hudson Bridge to the north and a majestic riverview 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 West & South Deck and True River spaces provide commanding views of the Hudson River during all four seasons. Shadows seasonal menu has a broad appeal with a focus on Seafood and Steaks. The goal of the menu is 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 have been to shadows on the Hudson many times and each and every time was excellent. This time was no exception. The food, as always, was great. Our server Kellie was EXCELLENT. She was very responsive and treated us very well. Members of our party has food allergies, and she went above and beyond to cater to their needs. One thing I will say is that our party wishes that there were more gluten-free options on the buffet, but otherwise another amazing experience at Shadows. We will definitely be back

Excellent brunch, and even better views of the Hudson. If it's a beautiful day, get a seat outside. It's worth it.

Had a great Friday night dinner. We made a reservation for 7 o'clock but there were a few empty tables. Spacious interior with a beautiful glass fireplace that separates bar area from dining room.. Wait staff very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious. My husbands steak could be cut with a butter knife! We have been looking for a great restaurant like this for awhile. Not sure why it took us so long but this is now our new go to place! A little pricey but you get what you pay for with this spot. Casual attire is accepted but we also saw people dressed up because wedding venue next door. Amazing views of the Hudson. Ample parking

We had a table next to the window with beautiful Hudson river views. The food was good I had red snapper with a green vegetable. Not much more to say except I do not see myself eating here again if I were to go back to this town.
If you want a normal meal and a great view this is your place.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on your most recent visit! While we're happy that you seemed pleased with your overall experience, we'd love for you to have an experience that exceeds "normal". Our Executive Chef and team here works tirelessly to incorporate amazing flavor profiles on our plates, using the best locally sourced ingredients the Hudson valley has to offer. We are in the midst of working on our Spring & Summer menu, which is looking like our best menu yet, so we hope to see you again in the coming season. Thank you again,

Great food and service. The server Alyssa was extremely nice and very attentive. The scallops and shrimp were great, as was the dessert.
