Nice stop on the river in Boyne City Michigan. We stopped in for a beer and the beer special on Sat was too good to pass up. This place is a bar but the view is great and they had a nice dinner special of Prime Rib. Glad we stopped

Another five minutes we had a seat. Fish fry going on, so menu was severely limited which while understandable, was disappointing. The entire... More

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 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;)
