Mr. Ed’s Bar & Grill

Mr. Ed’s is definitely the place to be for sporting events on the island. The happy hour prices are unbeatable and some of the best on Put-in-Bay as are the bands (always crowd pleasers) and the rooftop bar upstairs (the view of downtown Put in Bay is amazing). The sports bar feel of the afternoon, where you can eat wings and watch the game on one of 15 LCD TVs, segues into an all-night indoor and outdoor party after dark.

The Round House Bar

The Roundhouse Bar (RHB) has had a long tradition of good music, good friends, and cold beer for over 135 years. In the early years, it was extremely inappropriate and taboo for a gentleman and a gentlewoman to enjoy a cold beverage with one another in the same bar. Always the trailblazer, The Roundhouse Bar eradicated this taboo once and for all and became the first drinking establishment on the island to allow men and women to share in a drinking camaraderie.
