Beautiful view

Beautiful view in a place less traveled. We went for a work dinner and, as we were traveling, I was wondering who came across this place! We were told it's even more beautiful in the fall. The food, however, wasn't spectacular but it was ok for fried chicken and vegetables. As part of a dinner... read more

Friendly service and great food! A nice selection of dinners and dessert for even the most picky eater. The pot pie is fabulous and so is the cannoli for dessert! Family of 4 with desserts was around $25 +/-.

Wife and I ate here last night after wanting to go for years now. Peaceful drive out. Very friendly staff. Tracy was our server. We sat in back of dining room but still had a great view of the river. I had ribeye to eat. It was very juicy. Wife had cordon blue to eat. She said it was a... More

The best part of dining at the Overlook is the outstanding views of the Ohio River. There are good views from almost every table. The next best part of dining here is the great fried chicken. My husband loves fried chicken and was not disappointed during our visit. He had generous portions of crispy, hot fried chicken with mashed potatoes... More

Yes, the fried chicken is very good, but the scenic view of the Ohio river. Their menu is diverse so you will find something you like.

We came to the Overlook based on a recommendation from a friend. We are glad we took his advise and stopped by. We were greeted at the door and taken to our table where a smiling server was table side taking our drink orders. We heard great stories about the chicken so that is what 3 of our 4 person... More

There is a reason this place has been around for decades. The view is beautiful, the food was very good.....but the coconut cream pie was to die for! I would go back just for the desserts.

We have been here to eat several times and it's always great. The choices are many, from salads and sandwiches to full meals. This time we split a fried cod dinner and just ordered two extra sides. The staff is so very friendly and the view of the Ohio River is out of sight. It's worth going out of your... More

The view is the only good thing about this place. It was very musty and dirty inside. It took literally 45 minutes to get our food and wasn't busy. The food was overpriced and average. It was hard to eat anything due to the dirty atmosphere. Now here's the icing on the cake. After I paid my bill, I wanted... More
