I have probably been to Montgomery Inn Boathouse 50 times over the past 18 years but never bothered to write a review. It's the first restaurant I visited while interviewing for a job, it's the first restaurant our children visited after birth - at 3 weeks for both, and it's the first place that out of town guests (especially those...

A Cincinnati tradition, this restaurant which has two locations, the original faculty in Montgomery and a second one at the boathouse on the banks of the Ohio river is a must visit restaurant for all ribs lovers. The boathouse facility is quite large with extensive wrap around balcony seating offering an unparalleled view of the Ohio River. You get to... More

Known for their famous ribs but other items are amazing as well. I honestly am no a huge fan of their sauce (too sweet) so the last few times there I have tried other items. Last time was a briquette sandwich with a sweet potato. This was a lunch special the day I went and I would defiantly get it... More

We have been eating here for over 10 years, frequently when our boys were Cincinnati rowers. We returned after about a year when my sons girlfriend was in from Oklahoma and wanted to show her a Cincinnati treasure. Sadly, the food quality wasn't what it used to be. We arrived early on a Saturday in order to get a table... More

Went with my date and some friends.band it was fantastic. The atmosphere was great. Our server, Nick, was fantastic. Great service through and through. Would have given more stars if the food was better. I had the Duck, and my partner had the brisket. While the duck was fine, everything about the brisket seemed off. The cornbread seemed to be...

The Montgomery Inn at the Boathouse is a terrific place! The food is delicious (ribs!) as is true for all 3 Montgomery Inn locations. But, what sets this place apart, is the river view. Ask for seating in the mean dining area with the huge riverfront windows. Dining here is really a Cincinnati experience par excellence.

While it is near the river, you don't get much river views , and the interior is very Cincinnati, I find the food very pedestrian and average.

I go here often! They treat you like royalty! Dean is the Man. He'll make you and your guests feel comfortable. You can smoke cigars upstairs under the heat lamps with a river view. Enjoy your ribs and bring your cigar as dessert! Don't forget to ask for Dean If you want the royal treatment. (Just an FYI)
