With an eclectic menu, fresh ingredients from on-site gardens, and casual fine dining, Goat Soup & Whiskey is Put-in-Bay dining at its best. This restaurant serves up delicious food in a peaceful, sophisticated setting. Their outdoor seating is beautiful and the setting tucked away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Put in Bay attractions.
The chefs at Goat Soup & Whiskey take pride in everything they make. There’s no better indication of that than the three gardens on the premise. They use fresh herbs and vegetables in their appetizers, entrees, and cocktails. They also source berry’s from nearby Bergman’s Orchard. Diners can immediately taste the difference the straight from the garden ingredients make on their dishes.
The dedication to fresh extends to their seafood. They use freshly caught perch from Lake Erie in their famous Perch Tacos. Crispy fried perch is wrapped in a flour tortilla with cheese, green onion, shredded cabbage, and their secret “pali wali” taco sauce.
As their name implies, their soup menu is out of this world. Unlike most Put-in-Bay restaurants, they have a rotating menu of soups daily so make sure to ask your server what’s cooking on the stove. This establishment is known for its great food and craft cocktails!
