Best Bars & Restaurants

We are going to PIB this weekend to celebrate our 10 yr anniversary and have never been to the island. Any suggestions on a pool bar for Saturday to listen to music and enjoy some drinks in the sun? A restaurant to go for an anniversary dinner Sat night? Places to drink in the evening with a great view or just plain "don't miss" spots?

Thanks for your time!

If you check out PutInBay.com, there are previews of island bars and restaurants. Also check out PutInBayFoodBlog.com for some food reviews. Individual tastes vary, so can't recommend specifically without knowing if you like loud music or quiet music for your pool bar, surf or turf for your dinner, big crowd or mellow piano bar for your evening drinks, etc.

I think there is a new pool bars website out there, might try Googling it. PutInBayPoolBars.com maybe?

Good luck and have fun!

Happy Anniversary! The main pool bars (open to the public) are Mist, Put-in-Bay Resort, Splash and Adventure Bay.They will all have music and are fairly similar. Put-in-Bay Resort is usually very loud, Adventure Bay will be the least crowded of the 4. The official Put-in-Bay website is visitputinbay.com (Chamber of Commerce), this may help. My favorite restaurants are The Goat (.25 miles out of town, try the perch tacos! & fresh squeezed juice drinks), The Keys (downtown on the water) and The Old Forge (amazing dessert crepes). Great places for live music are the The Beer Barrel, Round House Bar, Boathouse and Mr. Ed's. If you are more into original music, check out Reel Bar (great drinks too). Mojito Bay usually has good live music, swings at the bar, tiki setting. If you would like to catch a great sunset, head to South Bass Island State Park (about 1.5 miles out of town).

Thank you both so much for all of your advice. I have looked on many of the Put-in-bay sights and just wanted to get some suggestions on the best places in town. I am so excited to visit this weekend.

Do you need to make dinner reservations at most places? What restaurant has the best food & view?

Do the pool bars charge a cover?

Rebecca, perhaps you already know this, but for any destination, if you click on the destination's name when in the destination forum, you can get TA's ranked list of restaurants for that destination based on TA reviews.
