Hell Yes, great choice. The one down on the river bank is the coolest.

Montgomery Inn Boathouse is a solid slice of Cincinnati. A bit on the fancier side, cloth napkins, etc.

If you're after "real" barbecue style grub and not just ribs I'd head over to Eli's BarBQ. Corn bread is the bomb, killer mac n cheese, awesome smoked turkey and pulled pork, great wings. They don't sell beer, but you can actually BYOB.

Its pretty pricey from what I recall but MI does have the best ribs I've ever had in a restaurant... but that doesn't count a rundown BBQ joint on the side of the road. Its hard to beat a good roadside joint though.

And that's my issue with MI, the cost. Once I got a smoker and started doing my own, and they taste better than MI, and cost WAY less, I haven't been back.

There have been several times where I was at Kroger's trying to talk myself into buying the slab of MI ribs they sell there but just cant justify it when I can buy twice(even 3 times) as many of the store brand...

I can buy three racks of baby backs at Costco, with the back membrane already removed for somewhere around 25-30 bucks. Add the seasoning I like and grill or smoke.

What's a rack at MI go for these days? I just looked (Each includes one side. Order: $23.99, Full slab: $29.99, King slab: $32.99).

Montgomery Inn is definitely a great choice, especially with the experience of the Boathouse, but their sauce is kind of love/hate, and they drown them in it. I would personally recommend Walt's Hitching Post in Ft. Wright, KY (close-ish to Lincoln Ridge) or Art's in Colerain.

IMHO, M Inn ribs are over rated vs cost. I’m not a local but have been there “on the river”.

If I'm ever on death row, my last supper request will be a rack of Montgomery Inn ribs with a side of saratoga chips.
