Reservation for twelve made and TWO e-mail confirmations from Open Table. Twelve people arrived in four cars after a drive of 30 minutes. NO cars in parking lot, but building was open and fire burning in fireplace. No hostess, waitstaff or ANYONE! We walked the entire building calling "is anyone here?". No answer. Finding tarps spread over carpet in dining room and all movable kitchen equipment sitting in the dark dining room, it was apparent that the restaurant was in a stage of remodel and the kitchen would be unable to prepare even a sandwich. Looking downstairs, the ceiling had been removed from hallway and no one present in manager's office or in adjacent grill which also appeared to be closed. We were left with no place for dinner at almost 8:00 pm. Driving back to town we found an accommodating restaurant and obtained excellent food and service. I am disappointed in Open Table and Overlook Restaurant. Our last visit and positive review apparently did not warrant attention from management, as no notice of closure was sent, and even as we were cleared by security gate personnel, there was no warning from security that the place was not operating.It will be a long time before making another reservation at Overlook, and even when using Open Table for future reservations, we will confirm directly with restaurant to ensure this does not happen again. As further evidence of management neglect, during our last visit we had planned to have the Chateaubriand as shown on the web site menu, but when we attempted to order, it was no longer available and would not be offered in the future. Current web site still shows Chateaubriand on menu. Poor management of facility and web presence. Web site should show closure, but did not. This is not a joke, the inconvenience of twelve people and the jeopardizing of a significant birthday celebration is inexcusable.
Really a nice experience. After reading reviews in which others stated that improvement had occurred over the past six months, we decided to try The Overlook for an anniversary dinner. We were not disappointed and are happy to find an upscale restaurant that is within a few miles of home. Food was imaginative and prepared in an excellent manner. Chef has several interesting sounding features on the daily menu. Ignore the menu on their web site, as it no longer reflects the current offerings. Open table confirmed reservation, then sent a notice of cancellation that the restaurant had cancelled our reservation. A call to the restaurant was required to resolve the problem. Phone number shown on web site and Open Table is incorrect. Service was great, our server had only our table and two others on the night we were there. We highly recommend the Overlook to anyone seeking great food and service in a quiet scenic atmosphere. Getting to the location, which is in a Golf Course Clubhouse requires entering through a staffed security gate and driving approximately one and one half miles. It is worth the effort and will be found to be another hidden gem!
Consistent, quiet setting. Food is good. Location is perfect.
Another great meal at The Overlook ! Great entrees, starters and dessert was an amazing carrot cake. Great service and a menu that does not disappoint.
New menu was great fish and pork dishes were great, and the home made ice cream is always a treat.
Overall OK experience, all food was mostly lukewarm. Pleasant service, not a crowded evening. We brought out of town guests.
My pasta/clam/shrimp dish was wonderful. However, my two male companions each had lamb chops and said this selection was so-so.
This is located at a private golf course so a reservation should note that they will not let you in at more then 15 minutes before the reservation. Also on Sunday they only serve between 10 am and 1 pm
We were seated promptly. Waitress was competent and friendly. The food was very good and creative. Dessert was excellent. Wine was a good value
We had a leisurely 3 hour dinner with friends. The food was great and the conversation flowed with ease.
Great setting inside and outside with elevated golf course view. Tastefully decorated with an excellent attentive staff. The menu was enticing and the food was excellent. It was our first visit and we will definitely be back at least once a month. This is an outstanding restaurant!
Had friends with us who had never eaten here.....food and service was excellent! Only drawback (which wasn't really too bad) was we were seated directly across from kitchen door.
Food and service were so much better than in the past.
The manager personally serviced our table and it was great. The food was wonderful and the deserts particularly good . Part of the experience of living at Connestee Falls
We always enjoy dining at the Overlook because the food is good and there is a good variety of entrees on the menu. The staff is always attentive and very pleasant.
One of the best meals that I've EVER had! Seriously, the filet mignon was UNBEATABLE.
We enjoyed a birthday dinner here and rely enjoyed every part of the meal, my soup of the day a corn chowder something was superior, Pork chop Oscar very nice and my wife's Filet was perfect. As well as the service was very attentive
We were very pleased about the Overlook reasturant. Will continue going there for dinner.
Most everything was great. Only complaint was the wait after seating to get started. My wife said the duck dinner was excellent (best she's had).
The food was good and our server was attentive. He seemed as though he was pretty new to Connestee, however he knew the specials without having to read them, and he gave us good attention. He made one small mistake on one bill, but nothing to complain about.
As always, this was a wonderful evening. The service is friendly and efficient. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. Combined with a beautiful view of the golf course and mountains....it can't get much better!
Enjoyed our dinner to celebrate a family birthday and Father's Day. Wait staff is very accomodating. Pretty view of golf course and woods.
We are residents at Connestee Falls and have had mixed feelings about the food due to different chefs. Saturday night was exceptional from the poached shrimp appetizer to the liver/onions, shrimp entree and the airline chicken. We will definitely make sure we done here more.
We had a window table overlooking the lush green fairway. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. My husband raved about his prime rib, and I loved my Caesar salad. What a perfect evening!
The view was great and the food was very good and well presented.
New menu, food was very good and it was quiet and you could carry on a conversation!
Mother and aunts visit.
We hadn't been since we returned this spring, and the menu and quality were notably better! We really enjoyed the second prime rib they brought out, which was delicious and rare/medium rare. The fresh salmon was also juicy and tender. The grilled veggies were some of the best I have had - tender crisp. It was a treat to find the quality of food and wait staff upon our return to the area. It is a hidden gem! Some don't realize it is open to the public and renters in the Brevard area are missing out on a great dining experience if they miss the Overlook Clubhouse during their visit!
Generally good food but were not aware it was a buffet dinner on Friday.
Great food and service. Everyone was happy with the wine, the food, and the service. Plenty of time for conversation during and after the meal. No hurry.
Nice menu upgrades---good service; ck dress code--most things OK
I've been coming to this restaurant for fifteen years and have had issues with one thing or another most visits. Not now. The new management has pretty well fixed the problems and is trying to be the best. They are very close to making this a place that meets or exceeds expectation. Certainly the Mother's Day Brunch price kept some away but they missed out on an exceptional meal. The choices were wonderful and all that I could try were outstanding. Well done David and staff.
Impeccable service, delicious food choices, and an overall wonderful dining event with awesome friends! David Miles and his staff work very hard to offer the finest culinary experiences for Connestee Falls residents and the surrounding Brevard, NC area.
A wonderful experience! The Mother's Day brunch was excellent in variety and flavor. The live music entertainment was a lovely extra.
Great Mothers day brunch. Great service, huge variety of food and beautiful views of golf course and mountains.
We live in Connestee and know the Overlook well. Our meal was great as always, we expect no less. My filet was totally outstanding and the servers were top notch. I highly recommend the Overlook and feel that it is Connestee's biggest asset.
Outstanding service and food. We went with a group of eight from a vegan to meat lovers. All of us were pleased.
We had the prime rib special and it was delicious. Cooked to perfection. Beautiful view over the golf course with mountains in the background. There was also a buffet available on Friday night and a regular menu with lots of choices. Worth the drive to Connestee Falls clubhouse.
We just went for Sunday brunch. A nice day so we chose there for the physical proximity and the view. While there was nothing wrong with any of the food there was also nothing outstanding about it. We went because it was close and a good chance to look out over the golf course and the long range views.
Lots to choose from. I usually get their Eggs Benedict but this Sunday morning went for a simpler cheese omelet, saving room for their Lemon Posset - definitely try this - it is a super light but lemony pudding-like dessert. Fantastic!
We never feel rushed in the Overlook Dining Room.
