With a stunning location right on the harbor, The Keys Restaurant embraces the island breezes while serving some of the best food on Put-in-Bay. Every seat in the house offers stunning lake views and Florida meets Lake Erie food is top-notch.

The Lake Erie delicacy of perch is giving the tropical treatment with the hand-breaded fish served with The Keys signature Key Lime tartar sauce. The Florida vibe continues to the drink menu where you’ll find classic rum cocktails like Painkillers and Rum Punch.

Right on the water, The Keys greets visitors disembarking off the Jet Express Ferry. Diners can watch boats come and go from the Park Place Boat Club. It is a wonderful thing to see Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial while dining. A beautiful reminder of everlasting peace, this memorial celebrates the Battle of Lake Erie and the resulting peace between Great Britain, Canada, and the U.S.

Once you’re settled into your seat and enjoying the views, you can really appreciate all the fine food offered at The Keys. Besides the perch, there’s a range of burgers, salads, and soups.
