On My Bucket List...Was good

This the original location and so we wanted to try this one. Been wanting to get here for many years. The closest thing I can think of to this place is Charlie Vergo's in Memphis. Vergo's seats around 550..This place seats 850! Same type of operation albeit Vergo's uses charcoal to cook their... read more

People in Cincinnati fawn over thislace for reasons I cannot fathom. The ribs are steamed or boiled but do not compare to any vast number of better rib places I have experienced all over the country. The sauce however is very good. As this place has become popular, the prices are ridiculous for what you get. The Saratoga chips are... More

If you like BBQ, you'll love Montgomery Inn. Fall off the bone ribs, smoked brisket and BBQ chicken is a bit of what we had. You can't go wrong here. We were told to come to the original restaurant to experience where it all started. Glad we did.

My family has been coming here since I was a kid, and it's one of my favorite restaurants to go to when I'm back in town. It's a must have for any first time visitors to the area. The sauce is delicious, and while I'm grateful I can find it at the grocery where I live in Indiana you can't... More

Some family members and I recently stopped at this Cincinnati classic for lunch on a Tuesday afternoon. It was not crowded and we were seated immediately. I ordered a Blue Moon beer and it came just the way I like it - curved glass with orange slice, perfectly cold and not flat. My mom and I ordered the Smokehouse Trio... More

Since moving away from Cincinnati, we usually enjoy Montgomery Inn care packages. We were fortunate to eat in the original Montgomery Road restaurant on our last visit to the city. I had the ribs. The ribs were phenominal. Better than I remembered. The staff was outstanding: professional, efficient and knowledgeable. The food delicious. If you want great ribs, it's definitely... More

Loved vibe of this restaurant. Don't know the history, but it appears that it was an Inn at one time, with multiple dining rooms scattered throughout--it makes it interesting. There's sports memorabilia all throughout the place, and it's also interesting. But the reason we were there was for the ribs, and they did not disappoint. I ordered the sampler plate... More

Had a great stop here with my father-in-law last Sunday night! Traditional rib dinner with potato and a salad. Excellent tasting sauce on the ribs and they were cooked to perfection. Loved the salt-crusted potato too. Service was great!

Had a good dinner at the original Montomery Inn on Montgomery road. I got the pick two with a Porkchop and chicken...it was a great meal! The wife got the sampler platter and was good. For anything bbq...make sure to tell them not drench it in sauce...if you don't like it that way...otherwise...a great meal!

After reading for years how great the Montgomery Inn ribs are, we decided to try it and see. It's one of those places work and social groups gather at, and they seem to enjoy it but I think it's more the company they are with versus the food. The sports items on the walls are interesting and fun to see,... More
