Vanessa was our catering manager for my daughter's baby shower. Vanessa was wonderful,helpful and an asset to the venue. The food and catering staff were great. Roberto and staff were there if we needed anything .I had a lot of family and friends from out of town and they loved the ambience and view. Thank you for making it memorable.... More

I've been going to Shadows for a couple of years for their prime rib and wedge salad. Alas, they are gone from the menu. Bring em back!!! Otherwise the staff is super-friendly and the views are magnificent, even in winter!!

Jane, Thank you for the kind words, we really appreciate it! In regards to the Prime Rib, it will be making it's return to our menu within the next month or two. The reason everyone loves our Prime Rib is because of the fact that is freshly prepared every day, having been slow-roasted for hours overnight. Due to the inconsistency... More

Love this place so much that I would call to book an event here myself. Attended a birthday party event for a friend. The staff and management did such a great job with the surprise and execution from start to finish. Kudos Shadows! The views are to die for in any weather!

Great views of the Hudson river and excellent food. Took customers for lunch, menu was ample but nothing over the top. Sandwiches and burgers were hot and served quickly. Server was super nice and everything was perfect. Nice - lunch for 4 for under $80.00 with all the ambiance of a private club. Bravo!

If you haven't been able to sit by the Hudson and eat dinner, this place is a must go. Just don't expect the food to be great. I would go again, maybe for wine and appetizers and eat dinner somewhere else? But the service was really great.

Kristi, Thanks for taking the time to give your feedback from your recent visit to Shadows. I'm sorry to hear you were less than impressed with the entrée portion of your evening.

Came in on a Monday night for drinks. It was pretty slow, so service was very attentive (but not overbearing). Main menu is pricy, but the food good. They have a bunch of Happy Hour specials for $5 a plate, and some cheaper drinks until 7pm. We got several appetizers to go with our drinks. Very large projection TV over... More

We came to celebrate my sister's birthday and everything was great. The place has a great atmosphere and has a lot of space. Our server, Raymond, was very polite and excellent. He made sure we had everything we needed. The food was very good with good portions. Will come here again when I come back to the area.

We were a party of eight.. We had a lovely room overlooking the Hudson river. The service could have been better but the food was very good. I had a cold water lobster tail which was absolutely delicious. We live in the area and this restaurant has never disappointed us. Spectacular views and consistently good food.

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.
