Amazing view of the OH River

Wow, this view is incredible! Lot's of windows at this restaurant so you'll have good luck getting a great view.

Be certain to stop at the overlook as the view is gorgeous. Breakfast fare was mediocre at best. Service was pleasant and quick, and there's not many restaurants to choose from in the area. Drive on to Louisville and eat at a great restaurant there!

This is one of my favorite places to go on a nice day. I usually take I-64 west from Louisville and take the river roads back home. The drive through the woods and towns are a lot of fun. The restaurant is located on a bluff high above a bend in the Ohio River affording an excellent view. The food... More

This is always great. The service and food are awesome. The view of the Ohio River and surrounding farmland is incredible.

We eat here for the view. The food is average and prices are OK, but the enormous Windows make you feel like you're sitting right on the bluffs overlooking the Ohio River. It's worth a stop for the view.

Food was so so but way too expensive for it to be so so in taste. Cobbler was good though. Waitress was very nice.

The view here is spectacular from every table, however the restaurant is very old and musty smelling. The food is just mediocre. There are not many healthy options other than grilled fish, the steak was very thin and over cooked. The desserts looked great though. I would go back for the amazing view. We did want to sit on the... More

So we drove down to this restaurant today Sunday September 20th. This would have been our first visit. We have a new dog who is being certified as a Service Animal but we are awaiting the paperwork to be sent out. So we call this place to inquire about their policy about bringing dogs. They said that we would have... More

We sincerely apologize if you were not informed that you cannot order off The Overlook's menu from Walter's Pub as this should have been explained. We do not serve The Overlook's food down on the deck because of safety issues and logistical issues. Maybe one day we can accommodate people down on the deck with the Overlook's menu and figure...

Four of us took a little ride up the interstate to The Overlook yesterday for lunch/dinner. A very good experience (as usual). The service was great, friendly, & all you could want for or ask for! Our server's name was Pat. She did an excellent job! The food was great. Three of us had the fried chicken. I had the... More

My husband and I, along with my sister and brother-in-law, came here for dinner after visiting Marengo Cave. My sister recommended this restaurant as they had been here before. I had the fried chicken, which was crispy on the outside and moist on the inside....not greasy and very flavorful...and had mashed potatoes and green beans which were also very tasty.... More
