Good Food at a Great Price

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!

Went to BRI for dinner we were delighted to find it is now non-smoking. Have always loved this restaurant and we were not disappointed on this visit. Excellent cheeseburger. Highly recommend. Will going back on Friday for fish fry.

Great Burgers. 9 oz hand pattied burgers. My olive burger had enough olives for 2 burgers. The bacon cheese burger was covered in bacon. There were several choices of cheese. They were cooked exactly as ordered. Everything on the menu looked good. Service was great and our food arrived quickly. Beer was cold but the wine was not quite cold... More

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

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.

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.
