Such a great restaurant in Cincinnati! It sits right on the river with a view of Kentucky and over looking the Ohio river. It was beautiful to see the river boat go by during our dinner. The service is great and the food even better! I always get their quarter BBQ chicken with the AMAZING BBQ sauce and the great... More

Taken by a local. Great decor of sportsnmemorabilia and biew over looking Ohio River! But make no mistake! The main attraction is the ribs and the delicious thick red sauce! Don't forget the thick sliced potato fries/ chops! This is serious food! A great place to stop whenever in Cincy! Highly recommend!

Wow... What a pleasant evening here. We sat outside on a beautiful night tonight, there was the Harvest moon, river barges going by, classic soft rock playing, You cant script a better atmosphere. Our server (server 54 lol-from the receipt) Jen, was 5 STAR . She covered every base, anticipating anything we might want with choices, always on the spot,... More

We have been to this restaurant several times. I love the ribs. I love the sauce. In fact, you can buy the sauce in grocery stores. I use the sauce when I make BBQ chicken at home. It is usually a long wait so be prepared for that. The prices are ok.

Love the food, just don't go without a reservation on a rainy night. Not only will you not get a seat with a view, you'll wait an hour and a half to get a table. The table we got was in an awful location, the servers kept bumping into us on their way into the kitchen area.

We liked it. Nice list of microbrews, great views of the river, ribs were good. The service was excellent even though the place was bustling. There was a "Three for 30" special which made sense if you were going to have a slab of ribs. Both my husband and son enjoyed it. The BBQ is a little sweet for my... More

I made "reservations" the day of our visit and noticed while making the reservation that it only gets you priority seating. We did end up waiting 15 minutes for a table, which really wasn't too bad. We were 3 rows from the windows. The view is amazing, right on the ohio river. I think no matter where you are seated,... More

I've been to the original Montgomery Inn a couple of times and enjoyed it, we were going to go thru Cincinnati so I told my spouse about it and decided to check tripadvisor. I read many negative comments ,told my wife we better forget it as it had gone down hill since I was last there. While we were in... More

We had an enjoyable weeknight evening here. We ate ribs and brisket which were both good. Nothing outstanding. Great river views and good service all around. It's a very large facility on two levels and a large outdoor patio. Valet parking.
