A word from Montgomery Inn - Fort Mitchell
Upbeat, fun atmosphere – from the Montgomery Inn in Ft. Mitchell, KY, the sweet smell of our barbecued ribs now wafts from a point south of the Ohio River.

Our world-famous ribs are definitely a hard act to follow. That’s why we also offer equally out-of-this-world entrées and combos, signature appetizers, soups and salads, and seriously decadent desserts. And if you have little ones who refuse to eat anything that’s not a nugget, children’s menus are available as well.Continued

  • "EAT ALL YOU CAN EAT RIBS. REALLY ENJOYED IT. SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Our first time at this one. It was less crowded and we liked the layout of the dining area. There wasn't anyone walking by or on top of you. Our server Donna was amazing! We will probably go here as our fave rib joint...the food was very hot and fresh. We could tell it didn't sit long to be brought to our table! no more boathouse for us!"

  • "Been here many times, good food, but this time was just okay considering the price of the steak. Was a bit on the dry side and not as flavorful as I like. At $35 I think the steak is way overpriced for what it was. Stick to the ribs and pulled pork/chicken as those are always excellent."

  • "The ribs were ok everything else was horrible shrimp was way over cooked the calamari was chewy the duck was old tasting and over all experience was just horrible"

  • "I've always loved the ribs at Montgomery Inn. I was disappointed this time. They were not busy at all since it was a Wednesday night at 6:30PM. The ribs were a little dry and blackened."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "Have been to other Montgomery Inns and this one was just as great. We routed our car trip travels through Cincinnati just to eat here!"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Wine list is great and they did a great job adding new salads, the entrees are still awesome"

  • "As expected, the food was great. You just can't beat Montgomery Inn ribs. The service was truly outstanding right from being welcomed by the young man filling our water glasses (not our waiter) to being greeted by name after paying by credit card and the final send off by what I presume to be an assistant manager. The service was friendly, attentive but not intrusive. I was quite surprised and rewarded our waiter with a nice tip. I hope he shares it all the support people who contributed to the experience. The only downside is that the restaurant is located in a nondescript, out of the way part of Ft. Mitchell but then if I was looking for a nice view I wouldn't be going to Ft. Mitchell to begin with."

  • "As always, the food at the Montgomery Inn was great! The service was very good. It's always a bit crowded and noisy on Saturday evenings but that's to be expected. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "This was our first time eating at Montgomery Inn and the service was greatly lacking. Our server didn't seem to know what was going on most of the time and was really confused. The food was great but the service was bad. "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "The ribs are still great. My favorite menu item used to be the strawberry shortcake. Ordered it this time and was very disappointed. Now the portion is smaller, the focus dems to be ice cream, and there were far fewer strawberries. A real let down. The prices seem to be climbing and the value is certainly dropping."

  • "We had an especially nice birthday dinner at Montgomery Inn (Ft. Mitchell). My wife tried something new (one of the specials) and it was very good. I had the ribs, which were excellent as always. The service was also very good. Definitely a "do over"."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "2 diners loved the pulled BBQ pork sandwich. Happy with sweet potato side. Great ribs. Wedge salad was soaked in blue cheese dressing and not much chicken for too much up charge. Food came very quickly which was great. Would stop again because we love these ribs and BBQ. Sat in booth by front entrance even though not too busy because it was late. Table top too high for booth chairs! "

  • "We have been to Montgomery Inn numerous times and we have had a flawless experience each time... Until last weekend. They tried twice to replace my Dr. Pepper but it was obviously out of syrup in the machine. After the 2nd try I just gave up. I was shocked to see that we were still charged for it even though I had clearly only had 3 sips of corbonated water. After that we were basically ignore. I really tried to be as nice as possible about the drink and I wasn't mad or anything. Very off bc we typically get very impressive service there."

  • "We only get up to Ohio one or twice a year, but Montgomeey Inn has always been one of the places we went to. My husband and I used to live the ribs, but this time they fell short. The ribs smelled and tasted like they'd been refrigerated after cooking, then warmed back up. The sauce was basically ketchup - sweet tomato sauce with no smoke or heat or tang we'd expect in BBQ. For the price charged, I expected a different level. The cheesecake was so-so, also not very fresh tasting. The one bright spot was the excellent service . If we return to MI at all, it won't be for ribs..."

  • "From the beginning you will notice the friendliness of the staff, quality of the offerings and without the cost of some of the more exclusive national chain restaurants. A good value for the average family."

  • "We are native Buckeyes who live out of state and visiting Cincy again with friends. We were pleased to find that Montgomery Inn BBQ still lives up to its reputation. The food is delicious and even the sides are well seasoned with the right amount of spice. The coleslaw has a horseradish kick. Our friends are ribs fans and agreed that these were exceptional. Our server, Polly, explained the BBQ and other meal options clearly for us and was very attentive to our needs the whole evening. We used the online priority seating and had to wait about 20 minutes, which was much better than the 45 minute walk-in wait on Sat. night. We didn't want to chance a long wait at the Boathouse location and were mainly interested in the great food. Well done!"

  • "Celebrated our youngest son's 21st birthday there, his request. Always great food and our server, Donna, made it great."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We have visited the restaurants in Cincinnati before but not the Fort Mitchell location. We were able to get call ahead seating and were seated quickly despite the long wait time for walk ups. This was all you could eat rib night and we did not leave disappointed or hungry. Great, meaty ribs with the awesome barbecue sauce. We also had our kids and the kids meals are more than adequate. It is a bit pricey so I would reserve it for special occasions..at least if you are going for ribs. Overall pleasant experience."

  • "Good place to have dinner that isn't too LOUD! Can actually hear each other in conversation. Music level was perfect. Food was good, as I've come to expect from Montgomery Inn restaurants. Was seated promptly, and the waiter was attentive. Disappointed that the wonderful breads that used to be served are no longer put on the table. Always looked forward to those."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The food is always terrific! The service is hit or miss...sometimes it's acceptable, other times is less than ok but rarely great. The bus boys and hostesses are typically more courteous than the wait staff."

  • "My boyfriend and I stopped here for dinner on our way to Belterra for the weekend. The menu doesn't have much variety, so we opted for one of the daily specials. The meal was divine, and as requested in my OpenTable reservation, the meal was expedited to meet our schedule. The atmosphere wasn't at all romantic as I expected it would be on Valentine's Day, and we were seated right by the door so it was a bit cold with the impending snowstorm. The thing we were most surprised by was the check. We racked up nearly a $125 bill in the manner of an appetizer to split, a glass of wine, a soft drink and two dinner specials. Not sure we will go back anytime soon, but it was an overall good experience."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food is always awesome. Our server was really good. But the people at the front entrance and others servers just standing around and blocking the aisles… need to go."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Yes, it was our first time there. We decided to have our Valentines outing at Montgomery Inn. My valentines( My wife and 2 sons) were very impressed. The food, the environment, and most importantly, the dessert was outstanding. I went for the 3 for $30, and my kids didn't like their first choice of desert. The wonderful waiter did NOT have a problem changing the dessert for my kids! That was really nice of her. She also helped my beautiful wife pick some fruity drinks... We all fell in love with the place. When the evening was over, I was a SUPER DAD AND HUSBAND! I will definitely go back!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This was a great dining experience. Though known for its ribs, the steak was my choice and it was excellent. Service (waiter was Tom) was outstanding and very friendly. This is a medium- to high-priced restaurant compared to others in Northern Kentucky."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "I have no idea how a place could say they were famous for their Ribs, eating what did at Montgomery Inn. Should have eating at Outback Steakhouse at least I would have not had any expectations. First and last trip to "The Montgomery Inn", service was short but compared with the food it was great."

  • "Food not that great. Waitress was having a bad night and had trouble keeping our order straight. Manager Compt my dinner and a round of drinks"

  • "We gathered for a birthday celebration and all left with positive thoughts and more than enough to eat. The ribs were great as usual, the lettuce wedge was one of the best we've tasted around town, and of course the selections of sides were excellent. Our server handled the requests of all 7 guests expeditiously and with a smile. We all agreed this was our best visit ever and beat our visits to the Boathouse location where it's sometimes hard to feel appreciated."

  • "The food & service are good. The servings are generous & probably would satisfy most people's appetite. The Inn is a nice place to eat once in a while. I would not visit more frequently as, in spite of the things already mentioned, I came out of the restaurant feeling like I experienced "mass production", like I just came off the production line."

  • "My husband ordered the "special" which was suppose to be a nice steak, topped with mushrooms. It looked and tasted more like Salisbury steak from a can. He didn't even eat half of it and the waitress didn't even bother to ask why. I think she was more interested in getting us in and out so the next table could be seated, working on the tips I guess. When we ask if they had any specials the 35 dollar steak was the only one she told us about, then as we were leaving we saw the board outside and there were two others listed, one which was Prime Rib, our friends that were with us would have ordered the Prime Rib had she told us about it. I don't think we will be going back."
