We have been eating here for over 10 years, frequently when our boys were Cincinnati rowers. We returned after about a year when my sons girlfriend was in from Oklahoma and wanted to show her a Cincinnati treasure. Sadly, the food quality wasn't what it used to be. We arrived early on a Saturday in order to get a table... More

Went with my date and some friends.band it was fantastic. The atmosphere was great. Our server, Nick, was fantastic. Great service through and through. Would have given more stars if the food was better. I had the Duck, and my partner had the brisket. While the duck was fine, everything about the brisket seemed off. The cornbread seemed to be...

The Montgomery Inn at the Boathouse is a terrific place! The food is delicious (ribs!) as is true for all 3 Montgomery Inn locations. But, what sets this place apart, is the river view. Ask for seating in the mean dining area with the huge riverfront windows. Dining here is really a Cincinnati experience par excellence.

While it is near the river, you don't get much river views , and the interior is very Cincinnati, I find the food very pedestrian and average.

I go here often! They treat you like royalty! Dean is the Man. He'll make you and your guests feel comfortable. You can smoke cigars upstairs under the heat lamps with a river view. Enjoy your ribs and bring your cigar as dessert! Don't forget to ask for Dean If you want the royal treatment. (Just an FYI)

Strong menu for a group with different needs. No matter which location ... the quality food, excellent service and a relaxing environment to enjoy an evening with friends. Consistent quality is critical.

I am a lover of real BBQ ribs (St Louis style), Chicken, and Brisket. One of the things I really dislike is when a place uses the boiled meat technique to reduce the time for the meat to be on the grill. It's easy to taste the difference. I have been stunned by the number of folks who do not... More

If you've never been to the Boathouse, do yourself a favor and go! This is one of my favorite places to visit in Cincinnati. The food here is very tasty, with menu options ranging from $12-$50 per entree.
