We ordered blt's, prime rib sandwich, and burgers. The food was great, and will be back again. We have to be back for the fish on Friday.

Looked like a good place to eat. They were busy, so we waited in line. No big deal. About five minutes into our wait and older couple walked in. The hostess came back and seated them immediately. Another five minutes we had a seat. Fish fry going on, so menu was severely limited which while understandable, was disappointing. The entire... More

Can't beat the BRI for a fish fry! Family stlyle fish, cold slaw, and fried... All you can eat! And lots of activity outside with bands, street vendors, ect. Been coming here for 20 years for Friday night fish fry- the best!

On Fridays they offer All you Care to Eat or a 3 piece Fish Dinner. Very good fish and fries. The wait staff is friendly and fast. Seating may take a little time if you arrive around 6pm. They also have the best burgers around.

Stopped in on a late Sunday afternoon. We were seated immediately and ate on the balcony overlooking the river. I was a very nice view and experience. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. I has a bacon cheeseburger with onion rings. It was excellent. My wife had ribs and fries that was equally great. This will be a... More

Stopped in for a quick early dinner and ended up with exactly what we were looking for. The BRI has some of the best burgers around, made fresh with local Circle M Ranch hamburger. Chose to sit out on the patio where a local feathered friend named Franklin shared some of our burger bun with us;)

We had read the reviews and were looking forward to dining here, although we expected more of a bar & grill. We were pleasantly surprised to find a lovely interior, delicious meals, happy and helpful staff, and a beautiful view overlooking a park and river. We will definitely return in the future - the outdoor seating looks very inviting.

Since discovering the Boyne River Inn, this is where we go 4 out of 5 times when visiting the area which is often. I've eaten meals that would rival any high end restaurant in the area for an amazingly reasonable price. The specials are something to watch for and try. We've never had anything but good food, friendly service and... More

5 couples out on a Thursday night. Great food, great service. Loved the Reuben, others said the ribs were really good. No problem moving tables to accommodate a large group.
