Our History


Founded in 1923, The Overlook Grill, previously known as Twin Lakes Country Club, was a gathering place for wealthy socialites in the Kent and Portage areas. During the early years of the club, the main attraction was the 9-hole golf course, designed by golfer Don Ross. The 1920s were the golden age of the country club lifestyle, and no one embodied this more than the elite in the local community.

Throughout the past ninety years, The Overlook Grill has evolved into the area’s most beautiful restaurant and wedding and event venue that can now be enjoyed by all. Allow us to host your next romantic date night overlooking the lake, relaxing dinner with loved ones on the patio or the wedding of your dreams in our beautiful ball rooms.

Our menu is carefully constructed for all types of palates, with special attention paid to meticulous preparation of the finest ingredients. We’ve dedicated ourselves to providing you and your guests with a meal that will serve as the centerpiece of your evening out. We invite you to explore our menus to discover what is possible when a collection of exquisite signature cocktails is paired with our passion for fine food.
