We went with a large group of friends on Friday and Saturday night for a couple of drinks. Full bar and not very expensive. Excellent service! The barmaid was serving great cocktails and beers and was very friendly! We also popped in for late Saturday lunch after skiing and had delicious wild mushroom burger (definitely top 5 I've ever had)... More

It is a tradition to ride our Harleys to Boyne River In on Saturdays and enjoy a burger that is so large it should be shared by two people. We like sitting at the bar.

The restaurant atmosphere is very casual. They have an outdoor patio along the Boyne River in the back. We enjoyed the whitefish - which was a large portion at a great price. Will definitely come back!
