It is a wonderful place to let loose, have fun, and nosh on great food, right in downtown Put-in-Bay.

Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Fish Bowl caters to the hungry eater. They sling classics like pancakes, biscuits, and sausage and gravy for brunch, along with brunch cocktails, and ramp up the offerings for lunch and dinner. They share a menu with their neighbor Mossbacks, which means hearty burgers and tasty pierogies.

The pierogies, a Mossbacks specialty, are served on their own or alongside Lake Erie perch or bratwurst for the classic combination of meat and potatoes. These melt-in-your-mouth potato dumplings are accompanied by butter and grilled onions. Yum!

The Fish Bowl is located in The Valentine Doller building. Valentine Doller was a famed resident of Put-in-Bay. He arrived on the island in the 1800’s and made a name for himself as the first postmaster, a founding trustee of the Village and even the mayor! This building has recently undergone extensive renovations.
