The Montgomery Inn is in a great location on the banks of the Ohio River.They have a great bar with outside seating, and the staff were very nice.They are known for their great ribs, but they have plenty of other dishes on their menu as well. It is a popular spot so be sure to make reservations!

Maybe in it's prime 10-15 years ago but the only thing worth going for is a drink or two on the balcony overlooking the river. Food is ok at best. Sat outside and expected a little nicer...felt like i was sitting at a neighbors bar-b-q under the tent on plastic chairs and tables...skip it and find one of the better... More

Excellent Ribs and Excellent Service. Friendly Staff! Neat view of the river area. Everyone of the staff we encountered were extremely courteous and friendly. We were there celebrating our anniversary and a mini-vacation before the boys went back to school. My wife, 15 year old and myself shared a couple of entree's. The ribs were amazing. We ordered a couple... More

I live in Florida now but came back to Cincinnati this past weekend for a family wedding and stayed a few extra days with other family members. Montgomery Boathouse was always a favorite for out-of-town guests in the past, so we decided to let them experience this Cincinnati institution. I was so embarrassed. We waited over an hour to be...

This was recommended and we were very disappointed. The service was slow and the food was below par. My friend ordered the ribs and they had about an inch of sauce on them and they had an old taste. The ribs were very dry and not fresh. I had salmon and while the fish was hot and had a good... More

Coming from Kansas City, its hard to find BBQ that "wows" us and I must say this was no exception; however, the food was very good nonetheless. Some in our party went for the $30 3-course selection and others off the menu and everyone was very pleased. The pork chops were amazing, the brisket was very tasty too. A few... More

The location is wonderful. The food is wonderful. I don't think I have anything bad to say about this restaurant! However, if you're not a person who normally likes ribs, the steak (sirloin) is to die for. Not to mention the awesome chip appetizer (take a bag home), and the view, amazing. The night we went there was a lightning... More

The ribs are still hard to beat.............tender, fall off the bone, flavorful. This trip they had a $30.00 special that included a salad, ribs with side and dessert. The wedge salad was fantastic. Several in the group had the broccoli as a side dish..........was a little over-cooked which kept me from rating the restaurant as excellent............on previous visits, the broccoli... More
