We ate breakfast here both days of our stay in Boyne. Had pancakes both days. They were that good. Not too heavy and left us feeling full. Go with the bacon over the sausage sides for meat. Bacon was very good. Sausage was more toward brown and serve but not really that bad. Nice little place. Not fancy. Kids won't... More

We had breakfast at Robert's in early August and were very disappointed primarily because of the service - or lack thereof. The wait staff were off hand and barely spoke. They continually tried to refill my coffee cup with regular coffee despite me repeatedly telling them I was drinking decaf. My companion ordered extra crispy bacon but when our meals... More

We wanted a quick sit down breakfast during our stay in Boyne City and the locals directed us to Robert's Restaurant. Upon arrival, no one greeted us at the door and all the tables were either occupied or filled with dirty dishes. We soon noticed that others who had been waiting for a table cleared the dirty dishes and sat... More

Seems many people come to dine as if a preferred place in the town. Only open til about 1 pm except on Fridays, when they have fish and prime rib.

We were looking for a good breakfast place and stopped at Roberts. We ordered a cinnamon roll thinking it looked good from a picture. Had too much frosting and not a true cinnamon roll. I had the blueberry pancakes special. There were lots of good blueberries in it but the portion was huge. My husband had eggs and hash browns... More

Breakfast is great! Sure beats making breakfast at home. This is a small cozy place and everyone seems to know everyone. It is located right across the street from Lake Charlevoix. The service is great, the food is very good and their pie is to die for. A few weeks ago, the business was put up for sale, so sad!... More

we've eaten there on numerous occasions, usually for dinner. sometimes the cod is fried in good filtered shortening, other times it's borderline burnt tasting. waitress has been efficient but not what you'd say professionally trained ,i.e. checking on your meal after serving it, toping off your drink, asking if you'd like a desert then naming the homemade ones off, etc....

Our Sunday morning breakfast was very good and served with efficiency and kindness. Portions were generous and our coffee cups were always filled. We had no trouble getting a table but that could change in high season.
