My wife and I had the pleasure of eating in this restaurant while visiting family last week. A lot of memorabalia on the walls of the restaurant, with the owner having been friends with a lot of celebrities. The restaurant sat overlooking the river and Kentucky so you could watch the boats travel up and down the river. There were... More

My entire family recently enjoyed a great evening at the Boathouse. You must try the Shrimp and Ribs Combo! The plum sauce is outstanding along with the standard Montgomery Inn Sauce!! Their friendly service is also great! Our Family loves the Boathouse!!

The Boat House is a cool place to eat if you like BBQ. Everything is smothered in sauce and it's too tart for me. The view of the river is nice and the patio is pretty. My husband enjoys the cigar bar. Sometimes after a Bengals game, you can find some of the players eating. It would be better if... More

This is an iconic restaurant in Cincinnati. Best known for their ribs but my favorite dish is the pork chops with a side of BBQ sauce. You can't go wrong with the pulled pork or the ribs and the fresh chips are amazing. Food is consistently good which is apparent by the huge crowds. I just found out they are... More

Local folks love this place but I find it: overpriced, tasteless, and unappealing. Everything tastes soggy and like it's been reheated. The view on the river is great but you can walk by it on your way to Sawyer Point. I think this place is trading on the currency of it's history and location but the food and service are... More

We had reservations for a large group (14). We were kept at the bar drinking for almost 45 minutes. The place was packed, but still, 45 minutes. We ordered drinks after being seated. The birthday girl got a glass of red wine knocked down her back. We waited over and hour for our food. Our complaints got us a free... More

If you are looking for a wonderful place to eat with great service- Montgomery Inn is the place. They have the best ribs that fall off the bones, the best ranch dressing you will ever find and a nice atmosphere- Montgomery Inn is the place.

The Montgomery Inn Boathouse has a great location and view. Food is good but it seems to be taking on a "quickly made" taste over the last few years, often the ribs--while good--are a bit overdone and lacking in meat at times. Elis and several of the smaller places have overtakend the Boathouse in terms of value and quality. Bhouse... More

Incredible meal. Sauce is fantastic. It is a mainstay for my business colleagues when they visit the area. Highly recommended.

Such a great restaurant in Cincinnati! It sits right on the river with a view of Kentucky and over looking the Ohio river. It was beautiful to see the river boat go by during our dinner. The service is great and the food even better! I always get their quarter BBQ chicken with the AMAZING BBQ sauce and the great... More
