Special Dinner

My family and I celebrated my father's 49th birthday last night at Montgomery Inn. They all knew right away what they were getting...pork chops! Since I'm not a fan, I decided to get the simple chicken club sandwich. Delicious. The onion straws are tasty, the sauce is pretty much to die for! Our... read more

Went on recommendation of the friends with whom I was dining. I am not a BBQ ribs person which apparently is the speciality here. I had the beef brisket which was one of the specials of the day and it was quite mediocre. Service was ok, but the whole experience felt a bit like being part of a production line.

Our party of 11 came at an off time 3:30pm, to have a family dinner before heading to a ballgame. Great timing as they were not as busy as it got to be after 4:30. Great waitress, kept on top of all needs. Gave us a sample of a new sauce to try as an appetizer, bonus! Food was hot... More

Celebrated Father's day with family. I am not a fan of BBQ but my Trio was very tasty. Our waiter, Travis was EXCELLANT, fast, friendly & entertaining. This was our 2nd trip and once again - I was very satisfied.

The restaurant is in a super location. Would be great for a special occasion, but I found the food lacking. For my taste, there was too much sauce covering everything. Waitress was okay, not very interested in our party of 4. I felt it we were a bit rushed because we did not order drinks and had 1 child. Surprised... More

Without question, Montgomery Inn has the best, tastiest, most moist and delicious ribs I have ever tasted. Vegetarians, vegans and non-red meat eaters should make one exception to partake of this incredible barbecue. It is that good, seriously. Tip: order some baked sweet potatoes, slaw and rolls to go with the ribs. You will not be disappointed, I promise.

Nice to have mature male waiters, have not seen this many since Joe's Stone Crab in Miami. Service is great and the ribs are some of the best. Salads are of good size.

Montgomery Inn Boathouse has spectacular views of the river. I've included our view while we ate lunch today!! We had barbecue ribs, chicken and a Mel Fisher salad. Everything was delicious. Oh, and we had profiteroles for dessert!! Really tasty. Montgomery Inn Boathouse absolutely has the best ribs around!

During our most recent visit we were disappointed, primarily by the lack of fitness by the staff. They seemed rushed, lacked any polish and were not particularly helpful to our group of 6. The food was OK, but not memorable. At one time this was a destination restaurant in Cincinnati, but I feel, and most in my party agreed that... More
