    The Overlook Grill

    Highly recommend The Overlook Grill as a wedding venue. Not posh or snooty, rather it is comfortable and welcoming, with its own unique charm. The food was great, and isn't that truly what your guests remember? We had a November Saturday night event, both fireplaces were lit which added to the atmosphere. Drinks and appetizers were in the bar area, plated sit-down dinner was served in their party area which included a nice size dance floor. Taylor Goodyear handled all of the planning, was very considerate of our needs and special requests, plus was on-site during the wedding, which greatly aided our comfort level. Their Executive Chef, Zou, served a fantastic menu, lots of choices, including some very unique special dishes that were absolutely terrific.

    Amazing experience

    I had the most amazing experience having my wedding at The Overlook. I began working with them about a year and a half prior to my wedding and the entire planning experience happened with ease. The planner, Taylor, was so sweet and professional and made the experience stress-free. Chef Zou and his staff are amazing and we had SO many compliments on the food. He even made us a late nigh snack of 3 different sliders. I would absolutely recommend The Overlook for any event and am already hoping to be invited to weddings there in the future!
