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.

We have eaten here on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. We go to Boyne City on Fridays in the summer to enjoy "Stroll the Streets". Music on every corner. We usually have the Friday night all you can eat fish fry and it is very good. It is a great deal and is priced less than a Hamilton!... More

Really enjoyed the patio seating with a view of the little park and river. Was within walking distance of our home we rented and we really enjoyed the burgers and beers they offered. We visited two times and also enjoyed their ribs and also tried some of their chili. All was delicious. The staff is very friendly and our only... More

After strolling around Boyne city we decided to stop in. It has that family owned atmosphere. We each ordered something different and when the food came we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the portions considering the prices and the food was excellent. All of us had to take home food and would recommend BRI to everyone.

We ate for the first time at the BRI as it is know locally. Our local friends told us it was just a bar and the food was just OK. That night the BBQ ribs was the special for $10.99. We didn't expect much and when the ribs came there were two slabs that were perfectly cooked with a great... More
