    Incredible Experience

    My husband and I feel so lucky to have chosen the Overlook for our wedding venue. I didn't expect to plan a wedding during a pandemic but the coordinator and chef could not have been more flexible, responsive, or positive. The space is beautiful, it doesn't even need much decoration. The food was delicious- the guests are still talking about it. Wonderful accommodations and small details from the venue that add up to many happy memories. I could not recommend The Overlook more.

    Amazing service and FOOD

    Chef Zou and his team made our day completely magical. They were so flexible and willing to help. Anything that we asked for they did for us without any hesitation. The food and service was absolutely amazing. All of the guests raved about how exceptional the food was. We had a sit down dinner with several choices and everything was equally delicious. It doesnt get any better than The Overlook....especially for the price! Chef Zou made sure to walk around and greet each guest and made sure everyone was happy. He even accommodated to severe food allergies that some of our guests had. Everyone at the Overlook made the process so easy for us. We truly were never stressed or worried AT ALL. Highly recommend this venue!
