This was my first visit to the Overlook Restaurant and I was very impressed. The service and food were both excellent. The view of the Ohio River was beautiful. The prices were slightly higher than I expected for a country restaurant but did not reach the level of what I would call unreasonable. I will definitely return here in the future.
Good prices, good food, a friendly staff, and an AMAZING view. The prices are not as high as the rating shows. I had a catfish dinner, a baked potato, salad, and tea for $23 (before tip). The river makes it worth the trip and plenty of view is available inside the restaurant from virtually every table. Enjoy!
I loved The Overlook Restaurant. I'm a single woman and usually I get shuffled to a back table by the kitchen and 'put up with' as if I fit the profile of someone who won't tip. I was so delighted that the gal who seated me cleared off a table between other diners which was right in the corner where I had my choice of which way to view the river! Next thing I know, I'm buying sangria, an appetizer, dinner, AND desert, taking home at least 1/2 of the food (so much to eat!), AND left a 20% tip. They got a great customer and I got to enjoy the experience twice, the second time when I ate the leftovers for breakfast the next day and remembered how I was treated. So grateful. 12 July 2018
You must go. Worth the drive. Food wasn't as pricey as I thought it would be. Very tasty. Of course you can't beat the view. It was fun watching the barges slowly making their way up and down the river.
It hard these days to find a restaurant that has good service and good food but The Overlook totally knocked both out of the park! The food was so good and our waitress was the best! Our food came quick and the view was breath taking! We will definitely be back!
