Joe's Bar & Restaurant

Joe’s Bar & Restaurant

Classic bar food, outdoor games, and fun, friendly vibe is on deck at Joe’s Bar & Restaurant. This gastropub serves up some of most delectable bar foods anywhere on the island. A little tucked away from downtown Put-in-Bay, Joe’s is the self-proclaimed “Best Dive Bar on the Planet.”

Order a Sloppy Joe’s Dip or Artichoke Asiago Dip and take a seat in their expansive outdoor patio. With comfortable seating and lots of games, like their oversized Jenga and Corn Hole, Joe’s is the prefect place to spend summers on Put-in-Bay.

Located on the southern tip of the island and right next to the South Bass Island Park, Joe’s makes a great pit stop while exploring Put-in-Bay. Eat lunch after having fun at Perry’s Cave, visiting the nearby Lake Erie Islands Nature & Wildlife Center, or taking in a game of golf at Saunders Golf Course. A cold beer is never more satisfying after a competitive 18 holes.

Joe’s has a full bar and extensive beer and wine menu. Their food is filling and comforting. Try their bar bread, flatbread covered in gooey cheese and a variety of toppings.
