Good view good food

We were a part of a large group. They did well. View is excellent. Food was great. The bbq bacon burger was fantastic. The Saratoga chips were also excellent. The Portobello mushroom wrap was also great. Service was OK - drink refills was an issue and it was very busy and crowded.

During my many visits to Cincinnati, I generally do not get the chance to visit the Montgomery Inn. Squeezed it in this time, and the quarter chicken, with BBQ sauce, is the best anywhere. Just like I remembered, didn't change a thing.

Our meal on this particular visit was one of the best! The special was brisket with some wonderful side dishes. Others on our group had the ribs and were very pleased as well. If you are fortunate enough to get a table by the window you will enjoy the view. The place is a little noisy as the tables are... More

The service and management were absolutely amazing !!! We joined a few old friends and the evening was so much more than I could ever imagine. We met Tom the manager and learned what a special restaurant The Boat House really is. A must visit if ever in Cincinnati !!!!

Service was good, food was good and view was beautiful. A little pricey but worth it! If you like ribs they are wonderful!! The scallop salad is a very good alternative option!

On the banks of the Ohio River, Montgomery Inn at the Boathouse offers great views, excellent service and delicious fine food. You can go for lunch and have some great sandwiches (their fish is actually the best!) as well as their BBQ sauce on Saratoga chips! The dinner is fantastic - you can have surf and turf, you can get... More

A friend and I stopped here for lunch on our way to a conference in Cincinnati. We decided to just share a couple appetizers and they were delicious. We had the barbeque nachos on their famous Saratoga chips and they were quite good.. We also had the onion straws which are always a must when eating here. They are very... More
