Beautiful view, great food and service. I had fried chicken, mashed potatoes and cottage cheese, my husband had the overlook burger. It was all good. If we are ever through here again we will definitely stop again.

Restaurant over looks the Ohio River, Great view watching barges. The food and service are so good, We live 45 miles north of Leavenworth and we go there every month at the least. You will not be disappointed. We would go more often if we lived closer.

We met our family for lunch this past Saturday. The food was awesome. We were told how long the order would take, since it's all made fresh, which gave time for talking. The wait wasn't long at all. We all had salads too. Server was very friendly. The view was beautiful even though it was a cold and rainy day.... More

The restaurant is very worn, with stained dirty carpet throughout, and dirty bathrooms. The view is beautiful. The food is mediocre.

I've been to the restaurant 4 or 5 times, each time has been great. Eating out on the deck is spectacular. The view above the Ohio River can't be best. The chicken tenders, cheesy bread, and the pizzas are very good. If in the area, you have to go.

We have been to the Overlook before and had good food and service....today was a totally different experience. We were seated right away and had a table with a beautiful view. But that's about the best thing I can say. The carpet in this restaurant is completely disgusting and covered with huge stains. Thankfully there are signs saying they are... More

Drove through Southern Indiana from Louisville on Indiana RT 62 and enjoyed the fall colors on the trees. Then we stopped at the Overlook Restaurant for a late afternoon meal. I ordered the breaded tenderloin meal and my wife ordered the same meal only non breaded and grilled. The food was delicious and the sunny day was beautiful. The waitress... More

When parking the car I was impressed with the lofty view of the Ohio River. The Overlook, well named, appeared as a clean clapboard covered building with an inviting outside wood deck. We were seated by a large window with a panoramic view of the river. Lonnie our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. The food was cooked to order... More

This is definitely a nice place to have lunch with a great view of the Ohio River. The service was very nice and prompt. The menu had many choices. I had ordered the apple topped flank steak. I know Flank steak is not the best cut but my piece was very fatty and not cooked very long. The sides I... More
