The Overlook Restaurant is like an oasis. It sits on a cliff overlooking the Ohio River offering an amazing view up and down the river. As a tourist driving the Ohio River Scenic Bi-Way it is just about the only major restaurant you come to for many miles. It sits in the middle of beautiful Indiana farm country and offers... More

The Overlook Restaurant is a destination restaurant. Leavenworth, Indiana is about 40 miles west of Louisville, Kentucky, 70 miles east from Owensboro, Kentucky and 85 miles east of Evansville, Indiana. It's the place to go after a ride on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. It is on a bank high above the Ohio River with lots of windows to watch... More

When visiting my mother recently, we decided to make the drive to the Overlook Restaurant for dinner. This restaurant sits on a bluff overlooking a bend in the Ohio River. It is an old country style restaurant, and is not very fancy. However, there is an amazing view from almost every table in the restaurant. It is fun to watch... More

We probably wouldn't have complained much if the food was mediocre, BUT our dinner was absolutely delicious! We were very happy with the view of the river, but we're thrilled that we got to watch TWO barges move down the river during our meal.

This place has an incredible view of the Ohio river. They have a huge deck outside for dining. The inside is homey and has a small bakery. The food and service was great.

Such a beautiful view of the Ohio River and that's what sells the restaurant. The restaurant itself is outdated and the food is okay but a bit pricey.

A group of us stayed at the nearby Leavenworth Inn for the weekend and went to the Overlook Restaurant for dinner and were not disappointed. Most of the group had been to the Overlook previously and it came highly recommended. On the first night we had to wait a little while for our table but that was no problem. We... More

This restaurant is out of the way but I saw the bulletin board and wanted to give it a try. The employees are nice, the food is good, and the view overlooking the Ohio river is gorgeous. Well worth the few extra minutes to drive to it!
