The famous eternal dilemma. “Where should we eat tonight?” Sometimes it’s so hard to get an entire group to agree on a place. Well if your group is at Put-in-Bay, the solution is obvious, come to The Boardwalk! Boardwalk Restaurant is a bit of a misnomer, because there’s actually four restaurants and two bars inside the Boardwalk complex. Everyone can pick out their favorites and then meet together on The Upper Deck for great views and great company!
The Boardwalk is right on the waterfront, offering stunning views of the lake as well as the best people watching on the island. The food is also incredible! Their most famous item is their incredible Lobster Bisque. It’s the best Lobster Bisque in Ohio, and many people make a special trip to The Boardwalk just for the bisque. But there’s so much more on the menu, all of the seafood is lovingly prepared. The Boardwalk is also a great place to grab a drink, with bartenders at both bars ready to serve up an immaculately prepared cocktail, or a simply frosty beer!
Nowhere else on the island offers this many dining options. It’s FOUR restaurants! So everyone in your group will find something for them. And the location can’t be beat!
