Go for the view, not the foo

Absolutely amazing view. I hate to be the downer, but their famous chicken is less than desirable, lacked flavor and taste. Sides are very good, family friendly and great service. I suggest the fish, perfectly cooked with good flavor.

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

This was our first visit to The Overlook and it was a pleasant surprise! The views were breathtaking! And, the food was great! We had the fried chicken and it was right up there with the best we had ever eaten. April, our server, was very attentive and sweet. It's just a short drive from Louisville - you won't be... More

The View is fantastic and the food is very good also. The Pork Chop with baked apples on top was especially good. Well worth the stop.

The view from the dining room is fabulous and our server was fantastic, but the food was overpriced and just okay. I had the soup and I'm sure they didn't prepare it, just a heat and serve soup. The pork tenderloin sandwich my husband ordered was strange. Usually they are pounder out, breaded and fried, this one was too thick... More

We travel about an hour 5 - 6 times a year just to visit this area and eat here at the Overlook. The view is the attraction and the food lives up to it. Reminds me of a great family reunion pitch in buffet where there's no bad dish.

Comfort food. A little pricey but you won't complain the food is great the view is wonderful and the portions are generous. Worth the trip and you should visit the pub Below if you have time. Relaxing business or family atmosphere or a romantic meal.

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
