Haven't been here in years, but nothing's changed. Food is still top notch, service is efficient and view is awesome. Do go close to opening time or have a reservation; otherwise expect a substantial wait.

We were celebrating a family birthday, so we went early in the evening to beat the crowd. Yes, it still attracts many people, probably due to its location and former reputation for good ribs. But, it just doesn't hold up to the way it was when deceased owner was still around. Food was decent enough, but when you have already... More

Having moved to the Cincinnati area last year, we have been experiencing dining in the area one establishment at a time. We walk by the Boathouse every morning and decided to give it a try for our wedding anniversary. I booked a reservation online and in the comment box told them that we were first time diners celebrating our 39th... More

A few big tables delayed the food a little while but our server was very good and kept our glasses full. Will... More

My husband and I were in town for a Reds game and he wanted to try the ribs because this place is suppose to be so good. We weren't impressed at all. I originally was going to try the pulled pork until I found out the sauce was mixed in it, not my idea of a good pulled pork, I... More

My out of town relatives always want to come here--they love it. I must say it isn't the best barbeque I've ever had, but it is very good--and, it is very consistent. Service is excellent, and you can feel comfortable there in anything from shorts to a suit (be sure to get the bib!)

When you go to this restaurant you should make a reservation. You have to look at the whole experience not just the food or service or atmosphere. Overall we had a good time. Valet parking made things convenient and it was only $4. We were seated in 20 minutes with a good view of the river. It was very nice.... More

My wife and I have lived in Cincinnati for a number of years but this was our first visit to the Boathouse. It's located right on the Ohio River in downtown Cincinnati. We've been to the original Montgomery Inn a number of times. I thought that location was great and the food very good. However, many of the rooms do... More

Beautifully located on the Ohio river. Went there to try the famous ribs.. Ribs were OK at best. Steak was good service was great.. Prices were high. View was great and the area is awesome. Give it a try.

The river view is nice and the decor is cool. The food is good, and the portions are huge. You should eat lightly the day of your visit, because you will over eat at this place! They bring out bibs for you to wear to keep the rib sauce from getting on your clothes. The ribs are good and fall... More
