In the middle of Lake Erie is probably the last place you'd expect to find the restaurant capital of Ohio, but that's where it is! Under the shadow of Perry's monument you'll find dozens of downtown Put-in-Bay restaurants catering to every taste you can imagine. There is so much great food here, from incredible pizza like Frosty Bar, Mama Maria and Cameo Pizza, to formal dining at the Goat Soup and Whiskey, from fresh Walleye at Mossbacks Bar and Grille to a burger at the Upper Deck, you simply won't believe how many amazing choices there are for a good bite to eat on South Bass Island.
Oh, you thought we were done? Guess again. When you hop onto the ferry for Put-in-Bay from Catawba, and you are trying to plan your next meal, you've got a lot to consider. Do you want the famous crepes at the Old Forge? Lobster benedict at Pasquale's Cafe? Or maybe some bratwurst from the Biergarten at the Boathouse Bar and Grille. Mr. Ed's Bar and Grille is home to Cameo Pizza that we mentioned earlier, and just down the road is the Chicken Patio. You can easily get appetizers at one restaurant, dine at another, and get ice cream at Dairy Isle or DJ's for dessert, all within walking distance of the Put-in-Bay harbor. Catawba Ave, Delaware Ave and Bayview Ave are all full of restaurants for you to choose from. Or you could go off the beaten path and dine at Joe's Bar, the best dive bar in America!
You can find Lake Erie perch, fresh out of the water. Italian food, like great meatballs, margaritas on the side and more. But, it's not just the cuban sandwich at Topsy Turvey, or the perch tacos at Goat Soup and Whiskey that make Put-in-Bay special. It's the late night fun downtown at places like the Put-in-Bay Brewery and Distillery, as well as Hooligans and Mr. Ed's Bar and Grill. And if you need late night dining options after a fun Put-in-Bay evening, we've got you covered, many of these restaurants are open late for just that reason!
