Recently went to the Baothouse to celebrate a birthday of a family member. We called and made a reservation, which is really "call ahead seating". Even with a reservation, we waited 30 minutes past the time we expected to be seated. When we were called, we were seated on the main floor level with... read more

Great resturant with a focus on their famous barbaque ribs! I also love the Saratoga chips and sweet potatoes as well. I would suggest going with the original barbaque sauce They have several locations in the city and I typically go to the original restaurant in downtown Montgomery. The boathouse is nice as it sits on the Ohio river and... More

We love Montgomery Inn, but the Boathouse has the view!!! We call ahead on busy nights so we don't have a long wait. There is valet service which is great. The food is amazing! My husband loves the ribs and the steak is always perfect! Plus, you can have Graeters for dessert. The staff is always very friendly and attentive.... More

The mood is fun, view is good, service is great and the food is always great. I had a hard time deciding because I love the ribs but had the chicken and shrimp. Both were excellent

The south may have ribs but, not Montgomery Inn style ribs melt in your mouth fall of the bone. The Gregory Family are well known for their Ribs. They are shipped all over the US to the famous.

Every time I go here it doesn't disappoint!! My favorite is the ribs and chicken combination. Staff here is very knowledgeable and friendly and the location is awesome! Definitely worth a stop when you are in the area :)

Rarely are restaurants worth a 1 1/2 hr wait. By time we were seated we were exhausted from standing along with 100's of waiting patrons. We realize that the restaurant was busy but service sucked and the waitress even spilled a dinner plate into to one of my table mates lap....no apology other than sorry! Food was also cold. For...

This restaurant is located on the Ohio River surrounded by walking paths and parks. It's what I consider close to downtown. A quick cab ride or a 20-30 minute walk if you are staying in a hotel downtown. It has a nice view of the river and plenty of room. We had our daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner here. It's a...

What else can be said about this Cincinnati tradition. We love going to the boathouse!! It wonderful. The only bad thing about it is it's so good there is always a wait-so come early-get a drink and sit and look at the river. Or send someone early to put your name in!! Or go at an odd time during the... More

You need to be prepared for a lot of heavy food when you come here. Even a big appetite will not be left wanting! If you're good and hungry, and crave lots of tasty meat, this is your place.
