Fried Chicken

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.

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

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

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
