Biergarten at the Boathouse

Biergarten at the Boathouse

It’s Oktoberfest in Summer. There are many Put in Bay bars, but non quite like Biergarten at the Boathouse. The Biergarten at the Boathouse is a brand new addition to Put-in-Bay’s dazzling array of dining and bar options. With a hearty menu of German food as well as a sophisticated international drink menu, The Biergarten delivers. Feeling adventurous? Sample a German beer on tap, fly to Italy for a tasty Negroni, or head south-of-the-boarder with a tart Margarita, while never leaving Put-in-Bay.

The bar itself is delightfully rustic. A sliding barn door from the 19th century and wood interior makes the whole place feel like an authentic German Pub. Settle in and enjoy the hospitable atmosphere. The German delicacies are also all outstanding, each one served with their house German potato salad and homemade sauerkraut.

The Biergarten’s Menu Highlights
  • -Sausages served with house mustard
  • -Selection of Bratwurst with garlic peppercorn salami
  • -Potato Cakes
  • -Bavarian Style Pretzels
  • -Spicy Cheddar Sausage on a Pretzel Bun


Eat a 1/2 pound spicy polish sausage with cheddar with a knife and fork. It is way too big to pick up! These tradition “knife and fork” plates serve two or more diners. The desserts are just as impressive as the main meal. How can you say no to a German Chocolate Cake with whipped cream? You can also try the mouthwatering Apple Strudel.

Eat inside or out on the wonderful patio. Enjoy a beer while challenging your friends in a game of ping pong or the ever favorite corn hole. Plenty of summer nights will be spent at The Biergarten. It is the perfect place for friends and families to relax and tuck into delicious food. Also available for business meetings and private parties. Give your next event a German feel with The Biergarten!

The Biergarten at the Boathouse is located next to other Put in Bay attractions like Perry’s Park in the heart of Downtown Put-in-Bay and it is minutes from the Jet Express terminal. If you want to take in all of what the island has to offer and stay overnight, then you can book lodging at a Put in Bay resort, condo, or rental.
