We normally only get the ribs when we go to the Montgomery Inn, but my wife decided to try the Grouper. The server told us that it was this evenings special and it was fresh. It sounded good so she gave it a try. She was very disappointed! When it arrived it had a very "fishy" smell and I suggested... More

This place is great for ribs and such. The ribs were really good! The atmosphere is great too with great views! The service is ok, not great not horrible. It's definitely worth checking out but I won't be going often.

I knew this was a BBQ place....I ordered salmon, which was very salty. The veggies were over done. Being from California...we hardly cook our veggies. Atmosphere was loud and noisey. Not for me. I think my friends liked their food. Just not my style. Would not go again.

Driving through Cincinnati, made our reservation on-line in the car. We arrived in Cincinnati about 30 minutes early. We were still seated promptly. Beautiful night view of Kentucky. Highly recommend the Pulled Pork Nachos on the crispy Saratoga chips. Perfect blend and amount of each ingredient. My husband had the combination dinner with ribs and chicken. Both chicken and ribs... More

We ate here with friends and 3 of the 4 ordered the BBQ ribs. They were lean and yummy. But my friend who ordered the salmon had us all stunned. It was amazing! Topped with incredible mushrooms, artichokes, and more, next time I'm definitely ordering this myself.

We enjoy eating the ribs while overlooking the Ohio river. Service is good and the bar tenders make great drinks. A Cincinnati tradition that your out of town family and friends should visit. I also recommend the Greaters ice cream for desert! One negative is that such a quality establishment feels the need to have multiple advertisements in their restrooms.... More

Still my favorite place to eat ribs. I have tried others, but Montgomery Inn Ribs are still the best in the Cincy area. There are different locations, but the boathouse location is the best. After stuffing yourself with ribs, a nice stroll along the riverfront is a must.

Went on a Saturday night, for party of 5 about an hour wait. Food was good nothing special, a little on the higher price side. Decor was nice.
