The chicken was excellent, but the ribs were a little dry even though they were covered in bbq sauce. Overall, the experience and the meal were good. We would definitely eat here again.

Riverfront view, started with a few cocktails at upstairs bar, and then went down for dinner. Must say we had the best Ribs along with BBQ sauce ever. Meat off the bone, so tasty. Great service as well. A must for all!

I now understand why Presidents have had Montgomery ribs flown to Washington. They are awesome. I also visited the original location in Montgomery. It's a history of who's who that has made this restaurant a destination while in Cincinnati. I will be back. Don't miss it.

Riverfront View. Sports bar atmosphere which did not match the cost of items on the menu; however there was a nice selection even for those who do not like ribs.

Watch the Ohio River pass by overlooking the Kentucky banks. See boaters leave the Boathouse. Walk along the river in the adjacent park to downtown Cincinnati. Enjoy drinks outside in warm weather, inside when it's cold. Something for everyone! Sports fans, families, couples, office workers....and one in Montgomery as well. The original location.

On a recent trip to Cincinnati, my coworker and I decided to come here for dinner. Our decision was based on a recommendation from one of our colleagues that came to Cincinnati on a separate business trip. The restaurant is located just east of the main downtown area by approximately 1.5 miles. As one can gather from the name, the... More

Letrs get one thing straight, if you are looking for a nouveau experience, or want a fancy place with fiur forks, this is not the place...and I do like those places too. The Montgomery Inn is an older restaurant catering to people like a fun evening and good ribs with their real friends where they can have a few drinks... More

If you like ribs, you'll love this place. Its a simple format - plastic menus with checkered table cloths. Typical barbeque. I find it a nice place to catch a good meal of comfort food. The ribs can be a bit messy, so be careful of what you wear. Have had a couple of business meals here. They have a... More

The food and view of the Ohio river were both great, but the restaurant interior is dated. New carpet and decor would spruce the place up a bit. Tables were also very close together. We did enjoy the Saratoga chips and my husbands ribs and pulled pork were good.
