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.

Great stop for ribs. Host proceeded to sit us at a table although our reservation had specifically requested a booth. After arriving at table and mentioning our request, took us to a booth. I don't believe the restaurant pays attention to special requests. Otherwise, great dining experience

The food was great but there was a celebration on the other side of our partition and the kids were out of control... screaming and squealing and talking soo loud .. never once did I hear a parent correct them or have any respect or thought of the rest of the patrons in the restaurant.. rude .. but everything else was great ...martinis were the best 🍸🍸!

The food was really good. I had their chips and onion strings. Part of them were soggy. Other than that there were no issues. I look forward to going back

Going to Montgomery Inn means just one thing that is important to us, ribs and chicken. While I like the ribs the most my wife prefers the chicken. From the appetizers of Cantonese shrimp to the main meal the food was exactly as we expected, wonderful. What impresses us the most about any of the Montgomery Inn restaurants is the uniform consistency that we find. Their processes they have in place seem to ensure that every bite the customer takes is not only perfect but tastes the same from location to location. The service was also way above average as our server was not only polite, courteous and friendly by her attentiveness was appropriately customer reassuring! Job well done!

We were celebrating my son's birthday. He had never experienced Montgomery Inn ribs before. The restaurant did not disappoint. He loved them! My son, grandson and I truly enjoyed the evening. Besides ribs, we also ordered salmon and a hamburger...all were delicious. Our waitress was great and very personable.

Good, but slow. Waited 15 minutes at the door, even after having reservations. Food took a long time, but was very good – large portions.

Busy night but terrible service. Food took well over 45 min and was cold. Waiter took it upon himself to keep 40% tip until asked where change was. While usually a great place to eat tonight was not their night!

As a native Cincinnatian, I love Montgomery Inn. I hate to wait in the lines though. Here, on Friday night, we were able to get seated right away. Plenty of open seats. The food is just as good as the boathouse or the original Montgomery Inn, without the wait. Recommend.

First time at one of these restaurants. Great food, service and value. We were visiting the area for a rugby championship at Thomas More College and it was a great find to enjoy this meal with our family. Will definitely come again when next in Cincinnati area.

Very disappointed. This restaurant is supposed to be a local legend. We were dressed up for our anniversary and were seated next to a table with a screaming baby, our reservation wasn't even acknowledged... they had us down but didn't know what we had asked for ahead of time which was a booth. We got one but right by the door and super loud. We asked for some fun candles and (as a stretch) maybe a flower... nothing. No wine list. People were in shorts and t shirts, we were in high heels and a tie. It was overall a very expensive and disappointing dinner. You only get one 1 year wedding anniversary and that was ours. Oh well.

We were traveling to the Cincinnati area and chose to eat dinner at the Montgomery Inn. The specialty was barbecue. Having spent a lot of time in Nashville, the dinner was okay. It was a little pricey for barbecue compared to other restaurants and nothing special.

Okay, this is got to be one of my favorite places in Cincinnati for barbecue. There's sauce is amazing and they're Saratoga chips, well, it's the best I've ever had. The meat is always the best cut and add that to the amazing barbecue sauce and you got a winning dinner.

We went to celebrate my sister's birthday. The meal was very enjoyable and the surprise dessert she received was so nice. We have had dinner there for several family and personal get together, from small to large. We have always been very happy with the food and the service. I have ordered carry out a few times and always had a good friendly experience. Thank you so much for such a nice evening.

The food was amazing, but our server had an attitude and was not welcoming at all. We felt like an inconvenience. However, all other staff was very friendly. First time there, travelled 2.5 hours, did not let it ruin our night though.

This was the worst meal we have received at MI. My wife's meal came out burnt & they replaced it but the rest of the part was already done. The waitress / manager didn't even come to the table to apologize or give us a discount on the food.

Also, my ribs were very tough & not like past meals I have had at Mont. Inn. We were not pleased with the overall experience.

We have started coming here again, had stopped because they still allowed smoking at the bar. The food is terrific and the overall experience so much better without having to battle smoke. I think they made this change several years ago, however we didn't learn about it until recently.

Dined at Ft.Mitchell, Ky location that was just off I-75 on our way to South Carolina from Michigan. Had the specialty of the house ribs and they were terrific, which was the reason we stopped there. Our server, Tom, was exceptional, and the atmosphere was comfortable and not overly noisy. Although they have many other items on the menu, the ribs are what they are famous for and justifiably so. Will definitely stop there again when we are in the area.

We hadn't been here recently, we used to come regularly and stopped because it wasn't entirely non-smoking. We learned that they had gone non-smoking and brought a family group for dinner. Everything was terrific, food and service great. We will be coming back regularly again.
