“Boathouse BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Very professional restaurant with an experienced staff, great food (quite a range of choices -- it's not all barbecue) and a lovely setting on the Ohio River.

“Food was good, but a bit pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Came from out of town to have dinner before a baseball game. Everyone on the wait staff was very friendly to us as we got seated next to windows overlooking the Ohio River (nice view). We had a variety of the bbq meats (ribs, pulled pork, brisket). Ribs had a bit too much sauce for me, but everything was very good. All in all, it was a nice relaxing dinner before we headed out to the ballgame.

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

Great place to stop before or after a Reds or Bengals game. Food service and atmosphere are great. Must go if in the area.

“A Cincinnati Classic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

My husband & I recently visited Cincinnati after having moved away 15 years ago. It was nice to see that the Montgomery Inn Boathouse hasn’t changed a bit. The Gulf Shrimp Cantonese appetizer, Saratoga Chips, ribs and duck were exactly their same, tasty, wonderful selves.

In an era where restaurants are supposed to be ‘trendy’ and ‘cutting-edge’, it’s nice to see a classic endure the test of time.

“This place is addictive!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Perhaps the best sweet barbecue sauce I have ever had. The food is delicious and so much of it I almost couldn't make it through my desert. The have their own brewed beer on tap which is awesome and the view of the ohio river is great. There is so much to see here since so many famous people go to this restaurant when they go to Cincinnati.
