Stopped here for cocktails on way to CIA. This spot is not only beautiful, staff friendly, gorgeous view of Hudson River; the ambiance is spectacular. The bar area is quiet although large, the views are spectacular. Can’t wait to eat here!

Great atmosphere and service! Great views of the Hudson River outdoors. A little too chilly inside for me. Beautiful dining rooms and set up inside. Fried calamari appetizer was good. Nice indoor bar! The house-infused Pineapple Cosmo was very tasty, although I didn’t feel the alcohol until the second drink. Hubby‘s rack of lamb was excellent. Cooked medium. My prime rib left a little to be desired. Ordered it medium well. It came out as ordered, but was a little dry. Had to ask for au jus on the side as it came with horseradish sauce and I don’t eat that. The rosemary popover accompaniment was burnt so couldn’t eat it. Manager was very nice and accommodating. The crème brûlée dessert was good, but average. Overall great experience!! Would definitely return and recommend to others. Prices were average which is great considering the location. 4.5 indeed!!

Sigh. Frustratingly disappointing restaurant, where it ultimately feels like you’re just paying for the view. Service is okay, food is truly not enjoyable, establishment feels like a veneer of fine dining, and the price is $$$.

Holy cow I had the watermelon, orzo, shrimp salad, and I would just about give anything for this recipe.

What an amazing brunch! It was a buffet but make no mistake… this ain’t no Golden Corral! This is an elegant, yet chill venue. Some were dressed in their Sundays best and others in jeans and sneakers. Totally up to you what you want to wear. This place is gorgeous! The views of the Hudson and the mountains were breathtaking. The Poughkeepsie train station is down the street so you see the trains as they are pulling in, which was so neat to see. It was like something out of a movie. The food was top tier! Shrimp cocktail with huge shrimp, salads, butternut squash soup, chicken and waffles, omelettes cooked to order, eggs, bacon, sausage, a full bar and let’s not forget the desserts! Pastries, cookies, cakes, the list goes on! We couldn’t believe the check was so low for all we were able to enjoy! The staff was friendly and helpful and the bathrooms were spotless. Whenever we are back upstate we will be sure to visit Shadows for Sunday brunch!

Nestled right off of Rinaldi Blvd in Poughkeepsie Shadows on the Hudson is a true hidden gem. With breathtaking views, exquisite and amazing dishes this establishment is truly one of a kind. So much so, that in 2018, my husband and actually held our wedding dinner here. Let me just tell you, everything was so intricate and amazing and everyone had a wonderful time. We love going back here year after year and are never let down by how truly amazing this place is. A MUST for those visiting the Hudson Valley!

Best Brunch spot on Poughkeepsie hands down. Substantial buffet, great selection, and great drinks! Breathtaking view of the Hudson River as well! Only thing missing is bottomless mimosas. Definitely get over there!
