The food was great except for my husband's filet. We have had the filets numerous times at the Boathouse and Ft. Mitchell but it didn't even look like a filet. It was quite warm on Sunday as well. Guess the AC was having a hard time keeping up!
Told it was the best ribs in town, but they were just ok wife's scallops in salad had shell bits in it and the rib king salad wouldn't satisfy my 3 year old...never seen anything with king in the name be so small......

Our experience was good. Once we were seated, we had to wait awhile before anyone came to our table with water, and then we watched several waiters and waitresses go past our table without stopping. It was quiet a while before our waitress came to our table. We really didn't see a lot of her, but when she did stop at our table she was very pleasant.
Enjoyed a tasty dinner with another couple and were able to speak to each other and be heard.
Darn Good Brisket
All Montgomery Inn locations serve excellent brisket, although the ribs and pulled pork are not to be overlooked! Great meal! I've never been disappointed at any of the Montgomery Inn locations. Enjoy!
The chicken was great!
The chicken was great!
The seating was timely. No one acknowledged our presence for over 10 minutes The waitress was noticeably irritated , that she was responsible for our table. The food was good, one member of our party did not recieve her meal until the waitress was notified( that meal was comped). I regret the tip I gave, it did not reflect the service or friendliness.

Food was ok. I'm a big barbecue fan so when you are used to Kansas City Barbecue it's hard to find places that compare. Overall the food was good though
High Hopes Unfulfilled
Montgomery Inn is a Cincinnati institution, and I think that's made them terribly lazy. Their ambiance is confused; it appears to be trying to be a swanky place from the 50s (that is to say, terrifyingly dated), but their menu, bar offerings, and service are more like a mid-90s Applebee's. Grouping bottles of wine by their price points and having fast service speaks more to a casual place than the visual clues seem to indicate. It's disjointed and off-putting from the start. All of this could be forgivable if the food was satisfying. It was not. My wife got the two-course meal, I got the three. Our "crostini" was soggy garlic bread, our salad was over-dressed, and our cheesecake was totally unremarkable. But that's not what you come for, right? You come for the ribs. Montgomery Inn proudly tells you that every US President since Gerald Ford has had their ribs, but both my wife's and my order of ribs were overdone and dry. When the waiter asked me how my food was, I replied with a very dour "It's alright," hoping to convey my dissatisfaction. What I got in response was "Just alright? Okay," and no more discussion was had on the matter. Just go to the grocery store, buy a bottle of their delicious BBQ sauce, and make your ribs at home. You'll save a fortune and have a better meal.

Donna was an awesome server for us. She was very polite and always checking on us.
This is a favorite of my family. I loved the new addition of the 2 course for $22. I was able to get a salad again! I am partial to the ribs and chicken, but the other dishes are not to be missed either.

We enjoyed the endless rib special, which is always a family favorite of ours.
Ribs were dry and over cooked! We had a 7:00 reservation but did not get seated until 7:30 despite the fact that tables were open.
This was our second Valentines in a row here. Absolutely perfect again. Highly recommend.
I'm shocked at the poor service I received at this location. I've been a fan of Montgomery Inn and their products for years. I reserved a table ahead of time to take my family of 4 for an early Valentine Dinner. We were seated right away. Water was poured for the two adults at our table. Nothing was brought for our kids. After 20 minutes, I had to let the manager know at the kiosk no one had come to our table. He went to the back and retrieved a waiter. The waiter was gruff, and obviously in a hurry. Our food was brought by a different "server". No one checked to see if it was correct, and no one offered us refills on our drinks. Our entire area received poor service (to the right of the entry door), and it was very apparent to the customers in attendance. When our check was left, the waiter commented........in case I don't get back to your table, here's your check. The entire time the manager stood at the kiosk with 3 young ladies, and paid no attention to customers. You would think he'd at least double check to see if the poor service was alleviated. Really, really disappointed with what is supposedly a staple of the area.
Always a good meal. Take a lot of out of town guests as this is a Cincy tradition. You get plenty of food, but think it is a bit over priced. $30 dollars an entree seems a bit pricey and keeps us from coming more frequently with just the family compared to what you get. Appetizers came almost at the same time as the food, but again overall quality was really good.
Yes the service was great and the food was hot but unfortunately the taste of both meal was not very pleasant. My wife's chicken was very dry and way over spiced. The broccoli had so much pepper on it that it was Un edible. My plater was good except it tasted like it had sat out and dried out so they put extra sauce on it to make it seem fresh. And for the 50.00 dollar bill it was not worth the 40 minute drive to eat there.
Good Times....Good Food....Great Friendly Service.
It was a last minute thought for New Years Eve dinner, not only were they open but they were able to handle my reservation for four people at 8:00. There was NO wait once we got there and was seated right away. the service was outstanding and I will return. We had a great time and and great food.
Love the Atmosphere
Love coming to this Montgomery Inn location. Love the atmosphere and the service. We purposely come from Cincinnati to this location because we love it here.

Slow service, not busy either. Food was warm at best. Waiter didn't check on us. Disappointed.
The Montgomery Inn always provides great food. They are very flexible to your needs and always prompt and courteous.

The rub on the all white chicken was amazing. In my opinion, the entree should come with a salad. Brussels sprouts were just ok. Not enough bacon. Cooked have been sautéed longer.

Our waiter was not very attentive. We had to ask for items several times. In addition, we ordered an appetizer which was very delayed in arriving. Our food was served very quickly after the appetizer arrived. The waiter took the entrees back to kitchen but they were "heated up" rather than fresh. The restaurant was pretty empty- maybe the service is why.
Delicious BBQ Sauce and Great Service
Our group of five ate at the Montgomery Inn on November 28 and had a great dinner. The ribs fell right off the bone and their signature BBQ sauce was awesome. We also ordered a bottle of red wine, which was very good and reasonably priced. Family members of ours who live in the area have taken us there twice now, and both times it did not disappoint. We will definitely be back!
Service was awesome. Celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary, have a great time.
Great For a Business Lunch
Montgomery Inn Ft. Mitchell satisfied all of our needs for a business lunch, with call ahead seating for a group, they were all set up and ready for us when we walked in. The waiter was prompt, friendly and accurate, the food was delicious, with a menu that pleased everyone's tastes. I would definitely recommend them for lunch or dinner.

True Montgomery Inn food without having to go to Kenwood or Boathouse where crowds are large
After all of the anticipation, I was disappointed in my visit to Montgomery Inn. While the service was good and the green fried tomatos very good, the ribs were not as expected. The meat was a dry and the sauce was over loaded and nothing about it made it stand out. This was a one and done experience for me and my companion.
Good bbq,nothing else
Went for my husband's birthday because he loves bbq,I do not. He loved the bbq he got, my filet was $36 and charred and extremely dry I drank about five glasses of water just to get half the steak down. It is a really old school place, similar to your grandparents house. If you want good bbq go to Montgomery inn just don't take anyone that doesn't like bbq. Their menu for that and ability to cook anything but bbq is substandard.

We brought out of town guests and everyone had great food and a good time. They were very impressed with the ribs.
Our group of 7 made a reservation day-of and we had a great experience. Would certainly recommend! All had a variety and everyone's was good.
Good food; fair service
Service was slow even though it wasn't busy at all. Waited for drinks; waited for every course of the meal. Servers were friendly and the food was good.
Not like the others
The hostesses were very rude and acted like we were bothering them by coming in to eat. One of the hostess brought me my salad and she acted like the world was ending because she had to do it. On a good note the waiter was very nice. At first he was very attentive on giving us refills but towards the end we didn't see him much and it took 20 minutes to get our bill. The food did not taste as good as the original location or boat house. I had the ribs and my wife had a burger. The food was ok, just not as good as the other locations. I was disappointed.
Very over rated concept that does not really offer a great value prop
a Cincinnati gem with great food
A unique Cincinnati restaurant a great neighborhood gem and would be wonderful for special business and out of town guest. Was a quiet restaurant for a fairly large gathering and the food was excellent
