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!

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

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.

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 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!

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.

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.
