This location is a great one for the scenery in addition to the delicious food. It is a convenient spot to meet a colleague for a business lunch. While known for its Ribs, I always order the blackened scallops salad. It is outstanding!

Best ribs in the Midwest. Enjoyed the ribs and chicken combination. Also you must try the Saratoga chips.

Montgomery Inn has been in business for years, serving many celebrities. The ribs are delicious and the barbeque sauce is unique and tasty. The Montgomery Inn at the Boathouse also offers a beautiful, scenic view on the Ohio river. The service is excellent and the food is magnificent.

Montgomery Inn Boathouse is the perfect place to eat. Something delicious for everyone in your party. And with perfect views of the Ohio Riverfront. I adore their appetizer plate for my entree. I get a little taste of everything. Ribs outstanding, steaks outstanding, seafood outstanding, salads outstanding. Need I say more?

Weary road travelers take note: if you stop in Cincinnati and want a good local restaurant instead of the predictable blandness of a national chain outlet, give Montgomery Inn a try. We've been here twice now, on two driving trips from the Great Lakes to Florida, and both times thought it was very good. This trip we decided to do... More

We visited on Feb 11, 2017. We visit this restaurant occasionally when we are in Cincinnati. Service is very good, not the young kids on their first job. The food is excellent and known for their BBQ Ribs. The best part of this restaurant for us is the view of the Ohio River. I had a full rack of ribs... More

This was our first time to Montgomery Inn, and it was definitely a beautiful location. But the wait and food were not worth it. City Barbecue has food that is just as good, without wait and price. It's nice for a date night and the view, to be sure- but I probably wouldn't go back.
