I visited the original Montgomery location which is in a quaint small-town oasis among some rougher neighborhoods. It’s hard to get a read on this place. In some ways the establishment is trying to be an upscale dining option complete with valet parking, but at the same time they don’t even take reservations (although they do have call-ahead seating). Prices... More

I came to the Montgomery Inn on a business meeting. When I found out that it was a Rib house I was skeptical. I am from Georgia originally, I know good ribs. This place was awesome. They gave us a private room to talk business and it was all good from there. They brought us samples of the new St.... More

In all the years I have lived in the Cincinnati it wasn't until recently that I visited the original Montgomery Inn. The atmosphere is very cozy! There is lots of memorabilia on the walls but it is not overdone! I had the Smokehouse Trio which was fantastic!! I was able to try the pulled pork, chicken & brisket! While I... More

I have been coming to the Montgomery Inn for ribs since the late 1980s. I don't come to Cincinnati too often, but I have probably eaten here 20 times over the years. Whenever I'm in Cincinnati and it's dinner time, this is my #1 go-to place. Ribs, Saratoga chips and rye bread are all I need to go home full... More

The food was good. I had the ribs and they were tender and good. The baked potato was average at best. We were in a big party, and the service was decent, not great. If the prices were 40% less, this review would be much different. Everything was fine, but I could find as good of a meal and service... More

You come here because of the ribs. They are slow cooked loin-back ribs done in an oven. These are not St. Louis style smoked spare ribs. The sauce used is an old favorite. Order a slab or just an order and the meat comes away clean from the bone. If you are wearing a white or light colored shirt or... More

There is a reason that this place is so famous that every president since Gerald Ford has visited for ribs! That reason is that there is simply none better to be had anywhere. Service was outstanding! I had to tip way more than I would usually because the waitress didn't miss a beat. Everything is clean and roomy from the... More

We visited on a Sunday evening with our family, a party of six. The drinks and meals were all delicious! Entrée choices were diverse and portions were generous. Meal choices included only one side, no salad included. The staff was attentive and friendly. Would recommend!
