long time go to place for a great view and good food

For business or just a dinner out this a consistently good place to go. Stick with the rib items - they are their best. The sauce is very sweet so taste before you slather it on!

Lots of sports memorabilia. The ribs are excellent with their special sauce. The service is top notch. Most of the waiters and waitress have been with them for many years.

Great Bar B Q and view. Right on the Ohio River adjacent to a giant strolling park. Bob Hope used to order his Bar B Q from here. It has a giant hometown following with several locations, but this location is the best because of the view. The boat house is a training center under the restaurant for rowers.

Great barbecue by the river in a really cool setting... When the weather's nice be sure to sit on the patio overlooking the river! The food and service are always great and while it's pricier than other barbecue restaurants it's not outrageous - and honestly is well worth the money you'll spend.

Bad service, bad food, and long wait. Need I say more? We are from out of town. We made a reservation only to be told it would be at least a 30 minute wait. We decided to eat at the bar to save time. Our server left half way through and we then had no server. Our food (2 medium... More

We decided to go to Montgomery Inn at the Boathouse in Cincinnati as it came highly recommended by many people and has 4.5 stars! From the moment we pulled in we should've just left. We didn't want to pay for valet parking so we had to park a good distance away. We walked in, and my husband and I ordered... More

I was traveling on business north of Cincinnati, and I was told to visit the Montgomery Inn at the Boathouse. I was NOT disappointed. It's right on the river -- multi-storied - but the best part are the RIBS. They are not to be beat. Including the home-made potato chips. Go with the $30 Meal deal - Ribs, 2 sides... More

Can't go to Cincinnati without going to the Montgomery Inn. Best Ribs and Crab Cakes. The waiters and waitresses were all amazing. Made sure you were taken care of
