I had been to Montgomery Inn's original location years ago but this was the first time going to the Boathouse location. HUGE but well-staffed and well-managed. Great service. I personally went for the Brisket, which was excellent and came with sides of grits and chopped...More

Great view of the river and the best ribs in town! Visited by many who travel from out of town. Sweet and saucy style - like KC style. Great service and the memorabilia is as great of collection as you will see.More

Hard to find good ribs but Montgomery Inn is best find for ribs with dining at its' best. They also have a special rib sauce for your choosing (be sure to select the sauce.). Be sure to enjoy the view of the river and sky.

We tried the world famous ribs, and they were good. A little vinegary but good! Crab cakes were also very delicious. The best thing is the view of the river and seeing the boats go by as you eat.

Not usually neccesary, unless big convention is in town. Normally walk in and your seated right away. Dinner time, its highly reccomended.
