Great View - Delicious Food - Good Motorcycle ride too

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.

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

Great views, not a bad seat in the house. The 15-min wait took over 25min, then it took another 40min to get our food (and we ordered immediately). Food was family cooking and the staff was super nice. It was just too much waiting for our kids.

Heading to and from St. Louis area several times I have wanted to stop in and try this place. I am glad I did because the food was good, the prices were right, and they have the best view of the Ohio River I have seen. The service was friendly and the grilled fish sandwich was cooked just right. The... More

The view is spectacular and the food is awesome. Service is a bit slow but who cares when the scenery is breathtaking.

Ate breakfast here on Sunday on the way back to Columbus, OH, after a Thanksgiving getaway at Colucci Cabins in Magnet, IN. This was our second visit here - last was a few years ago. Breakfast was delicious, prices were more than reasonable, service was excellent, and staff was welcoming. The restaurant sits high on a bluff overlooking a bend... More

Just about every biker I know talks about the Overlook. I can't say too much that hasn't already been said. I enjoyed my pork chop/apple dinner very much and my wife said her steak was the second best steak, ever. If you are out just cruising and enjoying the sights, be sure to stop in and have a bite.
