Spectacular view, great service, adequate food.

You cannot beat the panoramic view of the bend in the Ohio River. No matter what the season the vista is breathtaking. Combine that with good, home style cooking and great service and your trip was worth the drive.

We found the Overlook a friend had recommended or the views of the Ohio River. I had the fried chicken which was good. My wife had the Reuben sandwich which she did not think had corned beef but dried beef which no taste and taste stale. We would not go again.

We both decided on the fried chicken and we were not disappointed. It was hot and crispy, yet light and not greasy. The accompanying sides - mashed potatoes/gravy, summer squash, corn - were also very tasty. Great yeast roll also. When asked about desert, we told the waitress we were going to get something we saw in their wonderful desert... More

We traveled 80 miles with my 90 year old mother for Mothers Day. We had made a reservation for 12 noon and arrived at 11:50. We were seated immediately which was great. We were presented with a limited Mothers day menu. 90 per cent of items were the prepare in advance type such as meat loaf ,ribs, fried chicken, etc.... More

We've been going to the Overlook for years and years, and it's always been a family favorite. The view of the Ohio River is absolutely wonderful and all the little bird feeders along the property attract a wide variety of birds. If you can't get a seat by the window the open layout of the restaurant and large windows allows... More

My friend and I recently took a leisurely drive from Louisville to eat dinner at the Overlook Restaurant in Leavenworth, Indiana. This is a trip we've made on several occasions. It is always a treat to view the Ohio River (even though the river was muddy from recent flooding) and to gaze at the birds and assorted wildlife from the... More

The first thing you will notice is the beautiful sweeping panorama view of the Ohio river below the bluff on which the restaurant is seated. They could actually serve mediocre food here and still do a good business because of the setting, but they don't. They serve excellent food and the service is just as good. I had the chicken...

We decided to take a road trip with friends to eat at this lovely restaurant overlooking the Ohio River. (Hence the name) It sits atop a hill in the bend of the river. On the way I decided if they had fried chicken, that was what I was going to get. I didn't even read the rest of the menu... More

Was passing through Crawford County and just happened to drive by - the view to the Ohio River down below will stop anyone in their tracks. This has got to be one of the best locations for a country or small town restaurant one can imagine. With wraparound windows and a nice deck, this place takes full advantage of the... More
