Since 1952 Chicken Patio has been serving the best BBQ chicken on South Bass Island. With their famous, wine-basted, and secret sauce, Chicken Patio always delivers with juicy, flavorful chicken. Some say you can even smell it as soon as you arrive on the Put in Bay Ferry!
Chicken Patio Particulars
Located on the patio of the historic Roundhouse Bar, Chicken Patio is still in the same spot it opened in all those years ago. Of course, the operation has expanded a bit. In their early years, the Chicken Patio grillmasters only operated on a small charcoal grill. These days they operate a 21-foot grill making sure everyone gets their fill. The only thing that hasn’t changed is their sauce.
Each half chicken dinner comes with potato salad, sweet grilled corn, and a dinner roll. To Go chicken orders are also available. There’s always extra sauce and extra wet naps at no charge. Trust us. You’ll need both!
