My favorite thing to order when we go to the Boathouse is the Blackened Scallop Salad with the warm bacon dressing. It is delicious! It's hard to pass up the ribs but I usually get a bite of my husbands. I love the chips also....More

The BBQ chicken here is ok. The chips are good. Have had the ribs in the past and did not have as much meat on the bones as we anicipated; not as tender either.

Great food and service. We had very casual lunch running between appointments. Very friendly staff. Great decor and water view. Great chili (which is very important)

Known for their ribs and brisket, I had to try both. Both were amazing and cooked perfectly. The traditional and Chipolte BBQ sauces were excellent but really not even needed on either of the meat I had. The side dishes my party tried were OK,...More

The food was at best average. It appears they par boil their ribs rather than smoke them low & slow. Chicken was average. Also appeared to be pre-cooked, not smoked or roasted, and then dressed in sauce. Sides were poor. For being a Cincinnati tradition,...More

Not usually neccesary, unless big convention is in town. Normally walk in and your seated right away. Dinner time, its highly reccomended.
