Excellent brunch for Sunday. Reasonable prices for the food they serve and the desserts are to die for. If you want a restaurant on the Indiana side of the river and some great food and drinks, then stop in here and enjoy this place.

Finally made it here and the lamb/beef gyros were excellent! Got the baklava to go and can’t wait to eat it later.

I love that this restaurant is on the river and had a nice atmosphere. However, the food was only okay and our waiter was not very friendly.

Cold January 24 Wednesday night after a little business in southern Indiana, we thought we’d check that side of the river before heading back to Louisville. Last visits to the “chain” spots were less than memorable. We saw the lights on at the Olive Leaf...More
