Shadows on the Hudson is a waterfront restaurant located in Poughkeepsie, NY. The restaurant is perched on a cliff 40 feet above the Hudson River and just 50 feet from its eastern bank. This prime location affords a 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 on The Hudson 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.
