The Keys

The Keys

The Keys is one of the most coveted spots on all of Put-in-Bay. Located right on Lake Erie, The Keys is known for its Florida inflected cuisine, beautiful views, and tasty drinks.

The perch is one of the reasons people flock to Put-in-Bay. The Keys puts its own spin on this delicacy with its signature Key Lime tartar sauce. With extra crispy hand breading, perch is available as a sandwich or in a basket with coleslaw and seasoned fries.
