Everyday is Oktoberfest at the fabulous Biergarten at the Boathouse. A new addition to Put-in-Bay’s bar and dining Scene, The Biergarten serves hearty and filling German food alongside an extensive international drink menu.
The Boathouse Block
One of the main gathering places on Put-in-Bay, the Boathouse has something for everyone. Located in the heart of downtown on Hartford Avenue, the Boathouse isn’t just a restaurant, it is a destination. This complex consists of:
• The Boathouse Bar and Grille
• Boathouse Cart and Bike Rental

• Boathouse Beverage Center and Delivery
Known far and wide for their lineup of stellar local and national bands, the Boathouse is a must-visit while on Put-in-Bay. Make sure to also check out their full calendar for the summer season. The Boathouse serves up everything from Po Boys and seafood baskets to signature burgers. The cocktails are strong and beer ice cold.
Rent a gas-powered cart as well as cruiser bikes for the day at their rental spot. The rates are great and reservations are also available online. The beverage center is the best place on the island to stock up on essentials for your trip.
Steps away from the Jet Express Terminal, why not make a stop at the Boathouse your first priority!
