The Reuben was excellent. The Chocolate/Peanut Butter Pie was super tasty. Service was good. Spectacular views of the Ohio River. All for a reasonable price.

If you are near Leavenworth, In you owe it to yourself to stop by and eat. Nice place with good food and good service. The view is worth the visit if you don't have to really go out of the way. Unlike many restautrants they do not give huge portions. I like that. It offers great views of the Ohio... More

The restaurant is named for the great view overlooking the Ohio River. It features seating outside and inside. The place has its charm, but the food (lunch/ dinner) is basic country cooking and there is nothing remarkable on the menu. Service was good. Suggestion: Skip the food. Just have a coffee and enjoy the view.

The Overlook restaurant is definitely worth the trip you may have to take to get there. As their website says, the view of the Ohio River valley is stunning. Some tables in the main upstairs dining area will not share that view, however. But you can get great views from outside and from the surrounding deck. Food was good ,... More

Service was great, food didn't take to long..my boyfriend had the Reuben which he really liked, and I had the grilled chicken sandwich & green beans-chicken was "ok" green beans were GOOD..probably gonna go with the "fried chicken" next time. Seems to be one of their specialties..but overall great experience, with affordable prices:)

People in a 100 mile radius usually know about this restaurant, but in case you are ever puttering along I 64 in Southern Indiana between Louisville and Evansville, be sure to take the Leavenworth exit and drive the 10? miles to the Overlook Restaurant. You will be glad you did. Not what you would expect to see in Southern Indiana,... More

This is one of the first restaurants I came to when I moved to Indiana. I have a lot of great memories here. The view of the Ohio River is always different, boats passing by, barges carrying commerce, and people fishing on the bank. I have to say that there has never been a bad meal served for any of...

The food was not memorable. It was lackluster, but near the Inn. Hope it's improved when I return this summer.
