Good time always

We enjoy going to BRI. The menu has many options and the food is good. You won't leave hungry. The staff are all very friendly , especially Patty the bartender . In warmer months you can sit outside by the river. Also one of the only places that have Keno and that are open til 2 a.m.

Our visit didn't start out well as we were "greeted" by the hostess who really needed to be instructed in how to greet customers. Our service, however was very good - prompt, attentive - and we received our food in a timely manner, especially since there was a good number of people there. My wife ordered the prime rib sandwich... More

This is a burger and beer hangout. Simple plain food that's good. Good service and staff. This is a locals hangout. They also have a Friday night fish fry all you can eat. Always a wait for this event. Get there early or late. Cheap Pollack but ok. Beer is cold!

So I wasn't very thrilled about the food but I liked the atmosphere and the staff. Very friendly folks. I will try this place again eventually and try a different dish. Who knows I might fall in love and change my review. Conveniently located in Boyne City.

A cosy and friendly place. Great, tasty burgers and meatloaf and the gravy on the mashed potatoes was delicious!

We enjoyed the friendly, relaxed atmosphere for the weekly Friday night fish fry which was highly recommended by my family. Our server promptly took drink orders and started us off with delicious coleslaw and a huge plate of French fries. Great beer selection and especially enjoyed the Ichabod Pumpkin beer. The fried fish came next; all you can eat…we stopped... More

The Boyne River Inn (BRI for locals) has a great fish fry every Friday night. Get there at 5:00 or all the seats will be taken. In the summer, sitting on the deck overlooking the river with a view to the park is wonderful. The menu has something for everyone. The prices are excellent, and it's lots of locals who... More

Had a hard time choosing what to order. All 4 of us were pleased with our assorted selections. Ate on the deck overlooking the river. Service was wonderful as was the view of the river.
