When we say our ribs are famous, we mean it. Enjoyed by actors, athletes, and every U.S. President since Gerald Ford, they’re hand-spiced and slow-roasted daily, then finished off on our custom broiler. But Matula’s secret recipe sauce is the real star, made with only the finest California tomatoes and a super-secret blend of all-natural spices. And don’t worry about wearing a bib. It’s a good look.

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.

Whether it’s lunch, dinner, or carryout, there’s always something delicious you’ll want to try. But if you always decide to go with the ribs, we’re fine with that too.

We have been to Montgomery Inn many times before. Our last visit was at the Boathouse & I felt we were rushed & a pain we were there. This time The Orginal made us feel welcome right away. The waitress was very good even though she talked faster than I could grasp. The salad was fresh & the bleu cheese dressing was the best I ever tasted. Our Ribs, Shrimp & baked potato were perfect. I never had better food than this time. Thank you for a wonderful evening for our Fat Tuesday/Valentines dinner.

Montgomery Inn Original is normally one of our favorite places for dinner. This last visit did not meet our expectations to keep it a favorite. Pork chop was dry, took three requests for bread to be served, no steak knife provided, etc.

Only disappointment was the thinking we had a reservation and it was only priority seating. Why does open table mislead like that. We waited 50 minutes for table.

Food and service was great! Cincinnati treasure.

The ribs were terrible. I ate 2 and stopped. Waste of money. Especially considering it cost over $60 for 2 dinners and 2 sodas.

Our family had a wonderful evening celebrating my sister-in-law's birthday. The food was fabulous, the service was great, and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. It was kid friendly for my granddaughter and comfortable for all present. I would definitely recommend the Montgomery Inn to friends and family as a special dining experience.
