Walked in and it is quite dark in there. A huge bar that could probably seat 200 people. There was an outdoor patio that makes you feel like you are in a fish bowl, with glass all around the outside world. There was an old guy singing old country songs and about ten people in the whole place. It took a couple of minutes for one of the five bartender to approach us. They only had 16oz cans of BMC stuff, well, when in Rome, a 16oz Miller High Life. "Oh, bartender, can I get a glass?" Thanks for a plastic cup...$6 a can... Well, I did it and couldn't wait to leave.

the beer barrel...hmm i spent a week there one night. they have a rather impressive selection of beers considering it is a tourist trap. likely the reason ironically cuz most the other places are concentrated on offering the three swills!

atmosphere, well it is ok. makes you want to party and if a loud bar with beer flying (at least after dark) appeals to you (it used to me - now, not so much) than this is a fun place.

food is decent. you wont write home that you had your best meal ever, but for an extended bar selection it is pretty good.

value - with the exception of actually getting to the freakin island, is not bad. when you figure all costs involved you had better have a stash set aside for the weekend.

if you get to the island, pay them a visit!

suckem up and movem out! giblet

Put-In-Bay, the Midwests Island version of Ibiza. Alright, thats a bit of a stretch- but when you come to Put-In-Bay you come for one thing-PARTY! And this is the place most people go. The World's longest bar (not sure if it still is) has a great atmosphere. Check out Pat Daily any Saturday night in the summer- and you won't go wrong. Just don't ask him to sing Jimmy Buffett.

The beer selection- from what I remember (which is not much at all)-is your standard BMC. I do believe that they have a Put-In-Bay brew (not sure who makes this) at times or a Great Lakes on tap as well. Corona is also popular among the "island dwellers." Also, being an island your going to pay island prices. Judging from the boats parked at the docks, most people do not have a problem with that here.

Lets face it, if your going to Put-In-Bay its not for the beer, its for the atmosphere and this place provides it.
