Good food. Mediocre service. Would suggest that the waiters attempt to smile. It makes a difference.

Our waitperson recommended the shrimp taco but substituting perch (a local staple). I loved every bite and would definitely recommend.

Great soup (beef barley) & piero goes. The iced tea was NOT good :( a syrup instead of brewed). That was the only disappointment of the experience. Staff was very friendly & the view was really nice!

Food and service were average. Wasn't completely disappointed or super impressed. Waitress was really nice, food took longer than I expected since they were not busy and the food was okay.More

My husband and I are locals and go to PIB many times during the summer. It always cracks me up when I see all of the tourists waiting in horribly long lines at certain places on "the strip" and then we walk around the corner...More

One of our favorite places to eat on Put-in-Bay. It has great pub food and a great view of the harbor. I usually have either fish and chips or a burger.

Reviewed 29 November 2016

While we were told this was one of the better places open in October - we would disagree. The food was not what we expected. Service okay, but selections is limited and a bit expensive for what you get. Went once and wouldn't go back.More

We are so sorry your experience wasn't what you were told it would be. We ran into a few challenges in the Fall of 2016. We feel, if given another shot to impress you, we will do so. Thanks so much for sharing with us...More
