We can always count on Shadows as a great place to meet old friends and enjoy a leisurely lunch with great food and great service. Our server, Tanner, was attentive and genuinely caring. We'll be back!

I now have experienced all the various dining options at Shadows and find that lunch, especially outside on a nice, sunny day would be my number #1 choice. Why? First, it is the best value for your money as most dishes are under $20. second,...More

This is an amazing setting on the Hudson. The variety of food can satisfy everyone. Everything is well prepared. It is a bit pricey for the food but you are paying for the atmosphere and the wonderful views, that can't be beat.

Great server by the name of Conor greeted us and offered suggestions for entrees. Great setting, especially as the sun goes down to watch nature along the great Hudson River. Definitely would visit here again.

We had a wonderful dinner on a warm late fall day after visiting a college nearby. We were lucky enough to be seated on the deck and the view of the Hudson with the art-deco bridge at sunset was amazing. The food was very good....More

Stunning views of the Hudson north and south... we were the first to sit down in the al fresco area on a nice October Sunday morning. And the views of the prettiest river in the US were stunning! Because Sunday mornings is off the menu,...More

Was only there for a Sunday brunch. The crowd was in casual dress-up for the most part. No jackets/ties, but nice slacks and collared shirts on most men. There were a few diners who were in shorts, but they were in the... More

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.
