A review of the Montgomery Inn Boathouse

I am a Cincinnati Resident as such I have heard a lot about the Montgomery Inn but only rarely visited any of their locations. Since I was a little boy I have learned the ins and outs of barbeque and as an adult I can put together a pretty decent barbeque meal when I need too. Over the years I have listened to my fellow Cincinnatians rave over Montgomery Inn Ribs and the quality of food serve at the Montgomery Inn Re... view more

sweet meat treat

NO city has the offficial BBQ stamp and to each there own cincinnatians know and trust the boathouse to deliver a stellar meal every time and it does. Might I suggest that if you dont like sweet BBQ you try the crab cakes they are amazing as well.

Overrated BBQ

So I realize I've already started this review off on a bad foot with the title, given that Cincinnatians apparently love Montgomery Inn ribs. I know I've already lost a lot of readers. That being said ... I think you really have to like a sweet sauce to like Montgomery BBQ, and to me, that's not BBQ. I think the taste of this sauce is strangely similar to the ""BBQ sauce"" that comes with Chicken McNuggets from Mc... view more

I made reservations for a special occasion for a large party. We arrived on time only to be told that our table was not yet ready. A half an hour later and after a half hearted apology we were seated at two tables near each other but not next to each other. Some food was overcooked, some food was undercooked. Some food was so bad that the waitress herself suggested that she get a replacement , and she had to fight... view more

It's bleh..

I came in about 1 hour and a half to closing to try the ""World Famous"" ribs. I'm from Miami, FL so i decided to try the place everybody was telling me about. I had a full slab and a baked sweet potato. It was $25!!! The bbq sauce tasted very ketchupy.. I've had better..

Good American food

It's a good place to go before or after a baseball game with a view of the river. If you get the ribs, don't forget to ask for a bib!

Many Couples Disappointed for Valentine's Day

For Valentine's Day, my husband and I decided to enjoy the view and atmosphere down at the Boathouse. Yes, there are restaurants who's food we prefer, but you can't beat the view.\r We attempted to make a reservation 2 weeks prior. We were told that they were only doing ""cal ahead seating."" Fine. We called at 5pm and were told that we would be seated about 9pm.\r Upon our arrival, at 8:15, we discovered a line... view more

Excellent food but horrible serive

I dined at the boathouse on a sunday evening after having a nice day with friends. We had planed a ladies night out and we all wanted to treat ourselves to a nice dinner. When we arrived at the restaurant the host were friendly and accomodating taking us to our table immediately. When our server finally arrived, his name was Tim by the way if you ever have him ask for a replacement, he was extremely short, had a bad ... view more

Resting on its laurels

My wife and I have been going to Montgomery Inn for 25 years. It has for years been one of our favorite dining spots. However, over the past few months we have noticed a decline in quality. It seems the rib recipe has changed. The ribs are tougher, salty, and the quality of cuts has gone down. Food is still OK, and some of the other entres are still good (barbecue chicken, for example), but it is not what it once... view more

Worth the wait

Great atmosphere and view of the river. Never been disapointed with the food. Service is great. Popular place but worth the wait.
