I've been coming to this restaurant for many years. I brought my mom here during lunch on a Monday. The food was good but very pricey. People enjoy the view of the Ohio River so add that into the price. I had a grilled chicken sandwich and fries. My mom had a small side salad and cup of soup. Total... More

The wife and I went here for our anniversary. It was Ok the food was good, the waitress was nice but it is kind of pricey. If you're willing to pay for the view give it a try.

The food was scrumptious, the atmosphere was cozy, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable.... BUT THE VIEW!!! WOW!!! As a first timer I had to leave it into my friends hands and go with the flow. I wasn't disappointed at all. We had the Pork Chops with Scalloped Apples, Chicken Breast with Nicaraguan Jalapeño Cream Sauce and Pan Fried Chicken... More

I've been eating here for years, the food is very tasty and a great variety to choose from. Most people will come in the fall for the view of the trees and the ohio river! Try the ribs and the fresh fish, and the chicken is a favorite as well.

I have been to the Overlook Restaurant sporadically, probably a half dozen times, since 1978. I always order the same thing-the fried chicken. This time, the service was extremely slow and the fried chicken was very dry, to the point of being inedible. The sides were okay, but not as good as I remembered. The main attraction here is the...

We were in French Lick for the annual chainsaw carving competition; we asked Jason Emmons (owner of Bear Hollow Carvers) where he would go if he wanted somewhere good for supper. He recommended Overlook Restaurant. It's about 30 min from French Lick, on on I-64, but well worth the drive. Place was not busy at all on a Sunday night;... More

dinner--Labor Day evening A big walk down memory lane for us as we were here several time 19 years ago. It met and exceeded all our expectations--the view, the food, the service, the atmosphere. The fried chicken gizzards and rib-eye steak were done to near perfection. The waitress went to the trouble & consideration to bring out the 1st attempt... More

Took out of State family there for a nice dinner. Food was enjoyed by all BUT the carpets in the entire place are so dirty !! I can't imagine the owners leaving them like that. We plan on returning but I will especially watch to see if the floors are any cleaner.

I wanted to apologize that you were put off by the carpets. We actually have our carpets cleaned 3 to 4 times a year by Ann's Chem Dry and she does a wonderful job but they do not last. We just had them cleaned in the beginning of August. The carpet was put in brand new in 2012 and it... More
