My family has been coming to Montgomery Inn since the 1970's, when it was a tiny place in the Cincy suburbs. This Boathouse opened in the 1980's, and it was so nice back then. I am not sure they have changed a thing with the restaurant since the 1980's and that includes the carpeting and seating. This place makes $millions$... More

We were looking for a nice place to go for dinner on this trip to Cincinnati. We set up our reservations for a Saturday night. The reputation of this place had preceded our visit here. We had heard it praised repeatedly as one of Cincinnati's best places to eat. These ribs have served presidents and the famous alike. So we... More

20 min walk along river from Reds game. Nice atmosphere inside with views of river. Some outdoor seating. More casual outside than inside. We ordered a variety of barbecue sandwiches and weren't impressed with any of them. Wouldn't go back.

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
