Boyne river inn on lake street in downtown Boyne. Very good comfort food with a home cooked touch. Good wait staff who are mostly middle aged women. The onion rings are to die for ( if you eat too many they could be fatal) pasta specials are also good. More than just a bar plus nice outdoor seating area although... More

Very small bar/restaurant with very good food! We all loved the Friday night fish fry! The dinner is served family style -- all you can eat fish, cole slaw and fries!

Casual bar atmosphere. Good food, burgers are great! Friday night fish fry - recommended. It's local for us. We go there about once a week. Summer there is a lovely little outside deck overlooking the river.

This place has seemingly gone down hill. I used to enjoy the Friday Night Fish Fry and seems the quality has gone down while the prices have gone up. Fish was greasy and was more batter than actual fish. Coleslaw was still just as good but I came for the fish. Was hard to pay the bill after the disappointment!

Golfmonster is obviously a rude snobbish tourist. I have personally been to the Boyne River Inn multiple times and although I have had to wait for food, I have never been disappointed. The food is great, and the staff are hard working and courteous. Do northern michigan a favor "golfmonster" stay away!
