Wonderful meal on a sunny Saturday afternoon with a fantastic view from our table as we celebrated ours son's and grandson's birthdays! Food was superb, as usual, from the ribs to the shrimp to the pork chops to the duck! Our server, Stacey, was excellent, and didn't rush us even though there was a large crowd waiting to be seated.

I made reservations at this Cincinnati institution for a family party (6) scheduled for Saturday evening at 6:45. When we arrived, we were told the wait would be 45 minutes to an hour. It seems as if reservations at this restaurant means you go on the "Priority Seating" list. We had a three year old who had to wait until... More

We ordered ribs to go because the wait time was 2.5 hours. The ribs were amazing. I want to go back another time when we experience the restaurant.

You can pretty much expect the same good service and food at Montgomery Inn every time you go. Everything we ordered came out correctly and timely. I had the brisket special with jalapeño grits and sautéed Brussels sprouts, which was the best thing I've ever had there.

Known for their ribs and sweet bbq sauce, a tough place to get into at dinner time especially on the weekends. Get there early or have a reservation. Great views, great food and a great history!! Be sure to walk around and take in all the memorabilia.

You owe it to yourself and to your friends to enjoy the mouth watering Ribs and Chips smothered in the Only Sauce that is allowed. This has become a tradition with our friends and the only thing that has gotten in the way was Y2K . You can enjoy the crowd of fun people at the Boat house or take... More

I had been to the Boathouse several times before. I am really not even a great fan of ribs in general, so believe it or not I have never had their ribs even though so many people in the area rave about them. This occasion was no different. They happen to have had a beef brisket special. It was slow... More

We have eaten here several times when visiting Cincinnati. This visit was more mixed than most other times. First the service was outstanding. Our waitress was truly great - very friendly and prompt. She kept up with the drink refills. She accommodated special requests and made us feel like it was her pleasure to do so. The river view was... More
