Had Dinner with 28 guys from a Recovery House here last night! They were happy to accommodate us and made it to were we could all sit together. Our service was outstanding and we were treated very res...pectfully and kind! Our waitress Brittany was very attentive and very polite to all of us. Our food came out very timely for the amount of food we ordered and it was delicious. This was a great place to eat! Thank you to management and the Haverstocks for accomodating us last night!

We had a "45" minute wait when we arrived.... no big deal we will sit on the deck and enjoy a few beers and hell may just order a burger or pizza.....that wasn't going to happen, not once did anyone c...ome to see if we needed anything. We each had 3 beers and each time we needed one I went in to the bar to order them. Shitty service at best. An hour and half later our buzzer we go to our table. The waitress made a couple appearenceses.... service was????? Maybe service. Best part of the whole visit (besides the company and view) was the peanut butter pie!!! But that's not enough for a planned return. I'll find somewhere else to go!! The overlook should be overlooked!!!! See More

We have been visiting the Overlook for years and most times bring friends along. We have never had a bad meal or service. My favorite is their fried chicken!! Very Good! If you arrive at peak hours... you may have to wait, knowing this we try to visit between peak times. Highly recommend it and the view us great! See More

I've been coming down to this Overlook Restaurant since 1968. Their Meat Loaf is just the best. My only complaint is that they only serve it every other week. And only on the weekend!! The view is the... best in the state. I had to wait 20 min but the food is well worth it. See More

Great food and a wide variety to choose from. The staff is very friendly and the view overlooking the river with boat activity makes a wonderful setting. Been here many times and never disappoi...nted in the food or service. See More

My wife and I finally stopped in here to grab a bite this past saturday. The view was fantastic, and the food was great. We would definitely consider making the drive to eat here again. The dessert was worth the visit. The pumpkin bread pudding was amazing, and the death by chocolate was good too. The only negative was having to track our waitress down for a refill, but with many other guests this is very understandable. She did a great job. From the hostess to the waitress, everyone we encountered was friendly and courteous. See More

The food was really delicious and we didn't have to wait long on our food after ordering and it's a nice hill top view above the river and the waitresse was very nice .
But they need to let people kno...w that if you go out to the patio to eat than the same good is not offered to you to order on the menu as it is inside dining . See More

My chicken livers were perfect, my sister-in-law's fried chicken was great, and my hubby's ribs were delicious. Had to get our desserts to go. Large portions -- we were stuffed. Awesome views of the O...hio River. Finally had our desserts a couple of hours later, and they were great. See More

Sorry This is not a metropolitan city but the prices are. This is Definitely not the Overlook of the past. If for a special day maybe, the view is what your paying for the menu and quality has went do...wn but the Prices, Wow are way up there also the tables where half cleaned and the Carpet Floors where nasty not clean and service poor. I took friends for their first visit and they where not impressed. I apologized and told them this is unfortunately what happens after a change of ownership. This is a shame. Will not be back and never take family or friends... See More

Been a LONG time since I've been here. Brought my family here for the first time. Excellent experience. Pat, our server, made us feel right at home. The food was as I remembered it, very tasty. The e...ntire staff was very friendly. And of coarse the view is so peaceful. Look forward to returning. See More
