The food is great. I have never been there, but my boyfriend always bought his orders to go and would bring them home. One day I asked him to take me there, so I could eat in the restaurant. However they DO NOT ALLOW SERVICE ANIMALS. My service dog had his coat on and the owner asked for paperwork. (the ADA has changed its rules and does not require the proof he wanted). I explained that to him and told him he c... view more

Love the Lounge at the overlook

I can't wait to go see my Favorite waitress over in the Lounge. I have always enjoyed the meals at the Overlook and I also enjoy how you are never rushed so you can sit back and have a great conversation along with more food than you can ever eat at 1 sitting!

Decent food - Decent Service - Owner was rude

I have been coming in for over 35 years. Most of the time food is very good. However, last night I ordered the french dip sandwich. The meat was very fatty & had alot of grizzle. I literaly had to open the sandwich & pick it apart in order to eat it. There was a pile of meat on my plate when I was done. I stopped the waitress to let her know this was the worst meal I have ever had here & to advise her about the meat... view more

Best breakfast in town

One of my favorite places to go for breakfast. On the weekends, it's typically busy from all the people just getting out from church. But even then, you won't have more that a 10 minute wait.\r This is not a restaurant that you go for the ambiance... nor the service. Although the service isn't terrible. It's just not one of it's attributes. You go to the Overlook for a solid, down-home breakfast at a reasonable pric... view more

Cheap, great diner food, where the locals eat

The Overlook is where America's working person eats. I've been here so many times, I feel like it's my aunt's living room. Granted, my aunt is a little rough around the edges, but still - this place is one of my favorite places in town. Go here on a Sunday morning to see the African American ladies in the Sunday church hats. Go here to eat cheap breakfast specials with perfectly cooked hashbrowns. Go here for weird b... view more

Extremely slow and poor service.

I have went to Overlook many times. The food is good and the sandwiches are generous. The service was always slow but tolerable with good conversation. Today's service was downright historical. It took 1 hour to receive our meals. We requested to eat our sandwiches there and ordered take out for our families to enjoy. I got 2 out of the 4 entrees that I ordered plus 1 of my friends entrees. I do not plan to go ... view more

Great Food, not so good of service

We went her on a spur of the moment meal. At first we were very impressed with the atmosphere of the lounge. Not too smokey, and the waiter seemed very pleasant. We ordered out food, and everything came promptly. During our meal we saw our waiter tend to regulars, glance over at us, not seeming too eager to come over to ask how the food was, and our soda were completely empty. When we appeared to be done with our foo... view more

Wonderful environment for a huge meal that doesn't break the bank

The food is wonderful! I have been eating here once a week for 5 years and don't get tired of it. The menu is so extisive that it is hard to not try something different. I love the French Dip only order the full order if you are extremely hungry. The service over the years has had its ups and downs, but I always enjoy my food and experice here. All problems that I have expereiced were fixed in a timly manner. A... view more

Great gyros!

The Overlook is a true family restaurant- (the man who I assume is) the owner refills our waters! For $6.50 I always get the gyros and homemade soup. I usually like to try new things at restaurants, but this is so good I can't get anything different. Yum!
