Heading to and from St. Louis area several times I have wanted to stop in and try this place. I am glad I did because the food was good, the prices were right, and they have the best view of the Ohio River I have seen.

The view is spectacular and the food is awesome. Service is a bit slow but who cares when the scenery is breathtaking.

Ate breakfast here on Sunday on the way back to Columbus, OH, after a Thanksgiving getaway at Colucci Cabins in Magnet, IN. This was our second visit here - last was a few years ago. Breakfast was delicious, prices were more than reasonable, service was excellent, and staff was welcoming. The restaurant sits high on a bluff overlooking a bend... More

Just about every biker I know talks about the Overlook. I can't say too much that hasn't already been said. I enjoyed my pork chop/apple dinner very much and my wife said her steak was the second best steak, ever. If you are out just cruising and enjoying the sights, be sure to stop in and have a bite. Just... More

The Overlook Restaurant is like an oasis. It sits on a cliff overlooking the Ohio River offering an amazing view up and down the river. As a tourist driving the Ohio River Scenic Bi-Way it is just about the only major restaurant you come to for many miles. It sits in the middle of beautiful Indiana farm country and offers... More

Leavenworth, Indiana is about 40 miles west of Louisville, Kentucky, 70 miles east from Owensboro, Kentucky and 85 miles east of Evansville, Indiana. It's the place to go after a ride on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. It is on a bank high above the Ohio River with lots of windows to watch... More

The breakfast was very good, the service was excellent, the veiw was amazing ,we just came in the morning right when it opend, and the fog was just right above the water of the river, it doesn't matter really where you sit in the restaurant ,you will still will have a great view. Definitely worth it.

When visiting my mother recently, we decided to make the drive to the Overlook Restaurant for dinner. This restaurant sits on a bluff overlooking a bend in the Ohio River. It is an old country style restaurant, and is not very fancy. However, there is an amazing view from almost every table in the restaurant. It is fun to watch... More

We probably wouldn't have complained much if the food was mediocre, BUT our dinner was absolutely delicious! We were very happy with the view of the river, but we're thrilled that we got to watch TWO barges move down the river during our meal.

This place has an incredible view of the Ohio river. They have a huge deck outside for dining. The inside is homey and has a small bakery. The food and service was great.
