Montgomery Inn- The Boathouse (Downtown)
Sports fans will love the upstairs sports lounge with sports memorabilia on the walls, as well as the autographed photos of famous visitors who have dropped by. So come on in and get yourself some ribs and watch your favorite team in a fun, classy atmosphere.
Our world-famous ribs are definitely a hard act to follow but we found a way. For dessert, indulge in another Cincinnati culinary tradition: Graeter's black raspberry chip ice cream.

The ribs were over cooked. The meat between the ribs was marginal at best. the service was great. It is over priced for the value.
Ribs were over cooked and dry! Service was great. Seats are too close together!
We had priority seating for 8:30, was seated at 9:15. I requested a window seat, riverview. It was my husband's birthday. When our buzzer went off, the hostess was beyond rude. I sat my buzzer on the hostess stand...she did not look up, "step to the left and ask for Dan", I was like excuse me? She said it again. I didn't know how far left...ended up I needed to go all the way to the step and I was NEVER greeted by any man. I could have the name wrong, but it was a man's name. We had a waitress that was beyond rude. Was very bothered by any question, sighing, talking as fast she possibly could. The restaurant was extremely loud. Never again.
I went a very long time before getting a water refill. Waitress wasn’t very friendly. Once we got our food we felt very rushed. Wouldn’t return.
The beef brisket, salad and corn bread were delish. The mashed sweet potato's I passed. Should have just ordered a baked sweet potato.
Overall good atmosphere and tasty.
Ended up sitting upstairs at the bar as it was less crowded and noisy, had a great view and service was awesome. Great, attentive bartenders/servers. Great food.
Great service and food. Beautiful ambiance. Very convenient parking. Reasonable pricing. what else do you want?
Samantha was awesome. Great service and great food with an awesome view.
Just a great evening. The view was great, service outstanding (and we are pretty particular), and the food delicious and plentiful! Wish I could go back every week!
Well known establishment serving the best barbecue ribs ever made!
25 minute walk from downtown Cincinnati. You will not be disappointed!
Food was just OK for the money. Service was not good. Waiter didn't bring salad, xtra sauce, or take the salad off the bill till I reminded him. He definitely didn't put in any effort to making us feel welcome.
Service was outstanding had requested an outside table and were seated almost in the same table that I proposed to my wife at 9 years ago and the wait to be seated was not bad for a Saturday night.
We love Montogomery Inn and the boat house is always a fun location. Another year and not disappointed. Jeff, our server was great. We realized he was our server the year before. Same great level of service. Highly recommend!
Montgomery Inn never disappoints. Other than a slight wait despite our Open Table reservation, everything was amazing. Timothy was our server and he was AWESOME and just made it a great experience. The food was terrific and just as good as ever!
We will definitely be back.
This is a good solid restaurant that struggles between high end and causal. The venue is awesome. The food struggles between foodie friendly and Friday's. The smoked spare ribs were a nice addition to their normal over boiled baby backs, but it still doesn't equal the BBQ from a lot of the newer BBQ centric restaurants that have come around over the past 10-15 years. Butter dishes instead of pre-packed plastic portions and bread that didn't seem to come from a pack of sandwich slices would class the bread basket up quite a bit. But the food is still fine, the service fast, friendly and down to earth, and the view is first rate. Overall it was an enjoyable experience.
Very noisy. Reserved table by the window but when I showed up and my friend was late the hostess tried to have me sit with a clicker and notify her when my friend arrived. I said no I will go to my table and wait. I am not a big bbq person but l love restaurants on the water. Not come back:(
‘‘Twas great we really enjoyed everything that this place had to offer.
View was nice. Service was very good. Chose restaurant because of out of town guest. Was very disappointed with the food. Brisket and ribs were dry and not memorable.
My wife and I came there for our anniversary and the food was very good and our server was excellent it was well worth our drive we are from fountain City indiana thank you for the great scenery also
Had a great time with my wife. I hadn’t been there in 10+ years and it was her first time. Started the evening with reservations we had made on the previous day. Seating was running behind 30-40 minutes. We made our way to the bar and had a few drinks. Bartender was awesome and overheard our conversation if the buzzer was ever going to go off so we could be seated for dinner. She called down and they seated us immediately! It was a good thing because the buzzer had died. Ted’s platter was delicious w/ Saratoga chips. Wife ordered the filet mignon but came out burnt and well down (ordered medium.) The waitress paid for my wife’s drinks in order make up for the mishap. Overall great evening.
We were really disappointed - with so much hype about the Montgomery Inn - it was very overrated, terrible food - except the actual ribs, noisy and really not what we had anticipated. I would not recommend this restaurant period. The management needs to take another look at what they have become - it was like a factory and it was not a good experience in the least.
The service and food was outstanding! It had been 10 years since we visited and it was exactly how we remembered it. It's definitely worth the drive if you want some amazing baby back ribs!
Food was very good. Only negative was reservation was set and had to wait 40 mins after to be seated.
We have been to this place 5 times and we request Ron Hunt because he was our waiter the first time. He is an amazing server, the best we’ve ever had, anywhere! He truly makes every dining experience the best! The food tastes amazing and the view is unbeatable!
Good food, excellent service, great view of the Ohio River. close to Cincinnati stadiums.
Lovely dinner and service
I had a very pleasant time. There service was good, but could use some work. I love the location, it's great for a nice date. I would highly recommend a friend to go.
This place is normally great but not Saturday. Food took forever, couldn’t get a refill on drinks. Not good!
Greatest Ribs and Steaks around !! Great service and friendly atmosphere.
Requested a seat by window and we had our name called. We waited where we were told and another group of 7 came up behind us and got seated first. Our table was by kitchen door. We had special family in from out of town. Very disappointing. When we told hostess we were there 1st she just glared at us.
Great food and great service
We have been to the Boathouse before and like our experience this time it is a great place for ribs. The service was excellent and they were helpful in adjusting our reservation when I called to change the time. We try to come at least once a year when we come to attend a Reds game and again the service and food was very good. We will be back next year.
Excellent food and service!
The service was excellent!!!
I love Montgomery Inn Boathouse for the food and the view. The service is fantastic. What I’m not a fan of is the ambiance....but that’s ok. If I want ambiance, I go somewhere else. If I want ribs, I go here.
I loved the views and the atmosphere. Our server was top notch both upstairs having a drink for dinner. The food was good, but honestly not as good as I had built up in my head. I had both style ribs and brisket. They were good, but didn't blow me away. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich and I flat out can't recommended it. It just tasted a little off. Next time I think I'll take advantage of the 1/2 price apps and have a hot dog at the ballgame.
The ribs were delicious as usual. Great view of the river.
Value for price, wondering if living on prior rating.
